Analysis of Packed Red Cell (PCR) storage time against changes in routine blood values in the blood donor unit of Indonesian Red Cross Society Medan City
Background: Unit for Blood Donors, The Indonesian Red Cross Society of Medan City has established a two-day maximum storage period for PRC that has been processed from Whole Blood (WB). The quality of the blood is affected by how long the PCR is stored. Objective: To analyze the effect of Packed Red Cell (PRC) storage time on changes in routine blood values. Method: This type of research is a quantitative analytical study with comparative numerical more than two groups to analyze the storage time of PRC blood on changes in routine blood values. Result: 40 study participants participated in the investigation. Leukocytes, hemoglobin, and haematocrit were the measured parameters. The value of the erythrocyte decreases with storage time. The value of the erythrocytes was lower when compared to the storage of erythrocytes on day 11 than it was on day 1 of storage. When the haemoglobin examination findings have a p-value of less than 0.05, this means that the haemoglobin against PRC storage on day 1 and day 1 differ significantly. If the storage time is prolonged, the haemoglobin value will rise. P-value 0.05 for the findings of the analysis of haematocrit levels shows a significant difference between PRC storage on days 1 through day 11 and haematocrit, with the haematocrit value rising as storage duration increases. Conclusion: Haemoglobin and haematocrit levels, there was a significant increase in changes and erythrocytes during the eleven-day storage process, a significant decrease but still within normal limits
