Introduction & Objective: The ability to predict the use of blood components during bypass surgery will improve the blood banks ability to provide efficient service.

Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective cross-sectional study that was carried out on patients that underwent CABG in Shiraz Namazi hospital in 2004. The sample size was 480 and we did systematic random sampling, and a questionnaire contained factors that effect on blood need was filling out. Independent t-test, multivariate logistic regression and Poason correlation were used for data analysis.

Results: The average age of patients was 59.15±10.6 years, 69.2% were male and the mean Hct before surgery was 39.86±6.38% and after operation was 32.68±5.84% and the duration of surgery was 2 hours and 48 minutes. The average of pack cell was 5.76±1.52 unit and average of FFP was 2.82±7.72 unit. There was not significant correlation between ages, weighs, Hct before and after, sex and pack cell use (P> 0.05). The use of pack cell and FFP were more in urgent surgery in diabetic patients and vascular disease (P< 0.05).

Conclusion: It seems that the rate of blood demanding in proportion to blood use is logical but the rate of blood usage is more than blood usage in other countries with considering of immunological and non-immunological complication of blood products, the heart surgeons must do special concern about the making decision for blood use.
