Answer

Delayed transfusion reactions can be seen several days after the transfusion ends, and patients should be alerted to the signs and symptoms so that they can seek medical attention.

Infection related to the use of central venous catheter is a potential complication. Sterile technique can minimize the likelihood of this possibility. Infection related to the use of blood products is another potential complication that should be raised as part of the initial consent.
