Network for Advancement of Transfusion Alternatives
NATA, the Network for the Advancement of Patient Blood Management, Haemostasis and Thrombosis (formerly the Network for the Advancement of Transfusion Alternatives), was formed in 1998 by a group anaesthesiologists, intensive care specialists, surgeons, haematologists and transfusion medicine specialists concerned with blood conservation techniques. Their expressed goals were to promote improved use of blood components and transfusion alternatives in everyday clinical practice and to encourage the open exchange of information and scientific data within and between healthcare teams worldwide.
NATA is unique in that it provides a multidisciplinary forum for dialogue between haematologists, blood bankers, anaesthesiologists, surgeons and other healthcare professionals interested in promoting best clinical practice in the fields of patient blood management, haemostasis and thrombosis. Recently NATA’s mission statement — “Promoting optimal patient blood management, haemostasis and thrombosis in everyday clinical practice through a multidisciplinary approach” — was modified in order to better reflect the various clinical issues encountered in the management of anaemia, bleeding and thrombosis.
Physicians and Nurses for Blood Conservation
Every day every hour, there are people in hospital theatres and operating rooms undergoing surgical procedures; some very traumatic such as in the instances of accidents and others are scheduled like surgeries to corrects defects or incase of bodily damages which result from the prevalence of diseases such as kidney transplant. When these surgical procedures are carried out, massive blood loss results and the basic way of replenishing it is through blood transfusion.

Asia-Pacific Society for Patient Blood Management
In 1405, an expeditionary fleet of 62 ships and 27,800
sailors under the command of Admiral Zheng He,
set sail from the Ming dynasty of China to visit the
“Occident.” The expedition continued to make contact
with Indian, Arabian, and East African countries until
1424, when the Ming Emperor died. Some 70 years
later, the expeditions of Christopher Columbus (1492,
Spain) and Vasco da Gama (1497, Portugal) left for the
“Orient,” heading for Japan, China, and India in search
of spices and gold. And in 2015, yet another “fleet” is
about to set sail with the ultimate goal of improving
the quality of healthcare in Asia.
Throughout the 20th century, donor blood transfusion
has proved to be a double-edged sword in medicine.
Physicians in East Asia saw the need for a pan-Asian
society to share their experiences and cooperate
within the framework of a multidisciplinary forum
to further transfusion alternative medicine in the
region. As a result, the Asian Society for Patient Blood
Management (ASPBM) was established to facilitate
and advance the implementation of PBM strategies to
improve patient outcomes for some 4.3 billion patients
in 43 countries in the region.
KRSTA / 대한수혈대체학회
Korean Research Society of Transfusion Alternatives
The Korean Research Society of Transfusion
Alternatives (KRSTA) is a scientific society for
anyone affiliated with patient blood management.
It reasearches various clinical strategies to reduce
the use of allogeneic transfusion to a minimum, or
completely replace it if possible. It's goal is to establish
a standard of care for the alternatives to blood
transfusions according to the community's current
needs, and to promote that standard of care. KRSTA
hopes to minimize complications of blood and blood
products, help manage inadequate blood supply, and
give useful information about blood conservation.
