Exchange Transfusion

A treatment which removes the baby’s blood in small quantities and replaces it with donor blood. This procedure is used most frequently to lower the level of bilirubin in the baby’s blood. (See also Jaundice.) It also may be used to raise or lower the number of red blood cells, and improve the ability of the blood to clot.
