    Additional Information:Cryoprecipitate is thawed at temperatures between 30° - 37° C and is then stored at room temperature until it is transfused. Transfuse as soon as possible, but within six hours of thawing. The individual units are routinely pooled into a single bag. The product can not be thawed and refrozen. Patient is charged if the product is thawed and not transfused.
     Cryoprecipitate may be used for the treatment of Von Willebrands disease and for hypofibrinogenemia and rarely used for factor VIII deficiency (hemophilia A). Transfusion associated disease is a possible complication of cryoprecipitate. A single unit of cryoprecipitate usually contains 80 units of factor VIII and 200 mgs of fibrinogen in approximately 25-30 mLs of plasma.
