Transfusion-associated circulatory overload webinar: a week to go
The SHOT team will host a free webinar on Wednesday 4 May (1300–1400 BST) on transfusion-associated circulatory overload (TACO).
TACO continues to be the leading cause of transfusion-related deaths in the UK and TACO reports submitted to SHOT are increasing year on year. In this webinar SHOT pulmonary working expert group members will provide an overview of the TACO cases submitted to SHOT, cover key learning points and recommendations for safer patient care. The presentation will also include some illustrative cases.
