Abstract: 

Background and Objectives:The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of acute blood transfusion reactions in Nemazee Hospital as one of the biggest in the south of Iran. Materials and Methods: In a descriptive study during 2010-2011, a total of 57902 patients (including 33462 male and 2440 female, age range 11-86 years old) that underwent blood transfusion in Nemazee Hospital were evaluated for acute transfusion reactions.
Results: In total 52 (0.09%) cases of acute transfusion reactions (34 male and 18 female) were recorded including fever (25 cases), allergy (15 cases), back pain (9 cases), chills (8 cases), hypotension (5 cases), chest pain (1 case), hematuria (1 case), and cold sweat (1 case).
Conclusions: Although the acute reactions were not so high, it is important to educate nurses and physicians to prevent severe and life threatening reactions.
