Purpose and objectives: To provide healthcare professionals with clear guidance on
situations when the use of irradiated blood components is appropriate, and to document any recognized advantages and disadvantages of their use. The guidance may not be appropriate in all patient situations, and individual circumstances may dictate an alternative approach. Studies of patients in all age groups have been considered.
