As blood is
stored, it gradually degrades in its quality over time. It begins to
break down, so harmful by-products accumulate and it becomes
increasingly inflexible and increasingly sticky. These latter
effects cause the stored blood to disrupt microvascular circulation,
causing a malperfusion that can occlude blood flow to critical
tissues. Although this disruption is likely to be transient, it may
explain why lung injury, renal injury and myocardial ischemia are
associated with transfusion.
