After viewing this presentation, the participant will be able to:
1. Describe quantitatively the contribution of previously pregnant blood donors to mortality among male red blood cell transfusion recipients in the Netherlands.
2. Describe how differences in the composition of patient and donor populations could explain differences between findings from different studies on this subject.
3. Describe how increased knowledge about the biological mechanism may help remove this risk from the blood supply without the need to defer any previously pregnant donors.
