Maximum Surgical Blood Order Schedule (MSBOS) Development Tool
The maximum surgical blood order schedule (MSBOS) is a tool for transfusion services, surgical services, and anesthesia to predict blood utilization based on historical experience within an institution. The MSBOS is meant as a guide and should not interfere with the use of clinical judgement related to individual patients needs.
This comprehensive toolkit provides hospitals with resources to help Transfusion Medicine Services develop or improve upon inventory management programs. Examples of documents and tools for inventory management are included.
