Dear Dr Singh

Proposed guidelines for platelet transfusion for surgical adult or pediatric patient is if it is less than 50 x 109/L. Laparoscopic surgery or any invasive procedures such as lumbar puncture, epidural anaesthesia, liver biopsy, endoscopy with biopsy, placement of a central venous catheter we should not do without platelet transfusion if the platelet count is below 50x109/L.

Here 109 means 10 is to the power 9.

With regard

Dr R K Mishra
