29. How much Heparin is left in the processed blood?

The levels of heparin left in the processed blood are negligible, when transfused back to the patient the systemic levels are within the same scope as levels needing to be achieved when heparin is administered, it is therefore not necessary to increase the protamine levels, in cases where several bags of blood are transfused back to the patient it is advised to monitor the A.C.T. and take appropriate action.
