Transfusion supportive care is an important adjunct to the successful management of patients with malignancy, both those with hematologic malignancies and those with solid tumors. Transfusion supportive care in hematology/oncology involves the use of a variety of blood products, the majority being red blood cells and platelets, but on occasion granulocytes, fresh frozen plasma, and plasma components.
