KEY POINTS

  • During apheresis, peripheral blood components are separated from each other. The selected component is isolated while the remainder is returned to the donor or patient.
  • Apheresis is performed for a wide variety of medical indications. It is also used for peripheral hematopoietic progenitor cell collection.
  • The decision to perform apheresis on pediatric patients is largely extrapolated from the adult experience.
