The purpose of this research was to evaluate the accuracy of different perioperative blood loss calculation methods from previous clinical trials with new formulas. With more complex surgeries happening, blood loss is a major cause for adverse events; hence, a criterion standard to estimate blood loss and manage it becomes crucial to optimize patient outcomes.
