I think it depends on the institute and locally prevalent practice. What we do is we calculate as per body weight, the total volume of PRBCs required. Add to it the expected volume of tubings and chamber and then raise the demand for that much volume only. Blood bank dispenses that much only so that there is no wastage. So it kind of depends on blood banks also. Blood products are a precious resource and all attempts should be made to prevent their wastage !!
