The transfusion of blood or blood products may be life-saving or may reduce morbidity but also carries risks. Therefore, it should be prescribed only when it is clearly indicated, after a careful assessment of the benefits and risks for the patient. The pattern of blood usage in developing countries differs from that in developed countries. This reflects the better infrastructure (e.g. availability of safe water and adequate sanitation), public health services and more sophisticated health systems in developed countries, and the prevalence of some hereditary haematological disorders in developing countries. There are also differences in usage among developing countries, with the pattern in a small group similar to that of developed countries. In this paper we discuss the indications and the precedures for transfusion of blood and blood products, and outline the complications of haemotherapy and methods for avoiding or correcting them at the time of transfusion or afterwards (AU)

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital gets its oxygen supplies as compressed gas in cylinders from the sole producer in Barbados. Expenditure on oxygen will have risen to B$500,000 per annum in 1988. The rising use and cost of oxygen, stimulated the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Administration to consider generation of its oxygen. A cost analysis revealed that by doing this, it may be possible to save B$250,000 in expenditure on oxygen annually. An oxygen concentrator was installed at the Hospital and put into use in November, 1988 (AU)

Reviews the history of the University Hospital, its organization, administration and financing. Discusses the open system of the University Hospital, its emphasis on service, the goals and objectives of the organization and of individuals, the economic and external constraints and the need for adequate incentive systems for workers. Discusses the present hospital-wide incentive systems: medical care, long service awards, contributory pension and life assurance schemes, staff training programmes and other schemes, vacation, sick and departmental leave, and employer's liability. Analyses the utilization, costs and problems involved with these. Presents the individual incentive schemes as applied to nurses and drivers in respect of absenteeism, staff-shortage, and accidents respectively. Contends that while incentives are not directly related to the productive affort of the workers, mangement expects to improve the stability and strength of the hospital. Suggests specific measures to improve the incentive system and the introduction of new schemes to encourage and reward group effort. Recommends also greater involvement of employees in the decision making process and proper vertical and horizontal lines of communication. Concludes that poor finances, poor remuneration of staff and changing societal human behaviour problems have contributed to present low staff morale and staff relations and that the hospital-wide incentive schemes must be complemented by group and incentive schemes.

The hospital restoration project seeks to assist the government in the rationalisation and development process of the secondary care services and establishing strong linkages between the primary and secondary levels in order to create a comprehensive care system. Constraints occasioned by recent structural adjustment programmes together with concentration of capital development projects in the public health sector on primary health care have contributed to the erosion of the secondary care service. Funding agencies will assist the government. Specific objectives of the project are to: upgrade physical facilities and equipment, develop and strengthen management systems, improve training capabilities, establish norms and standards and improve the maintenance of facilities and equipment by strengthening the maintenance system.
