Therapeutic apheresis is a relatively unfamiliar area of nursing practice. It involves the separation and removal of blood components and constituents for direct or indirect treatment of conditions spanning a wide range of clinical specialties; it requires a particular set of technical skills and specialized knowledge. This article summarizes the procedure, when it is used, and the specialist skills needed to perform it and deal with any side-effects.


During the process of apheresis, blood components/constituents are separated or removed from a patient or donor in a continuous flow, with or without being replaced. Blood is drawn into a machine, usually via a vein in the cubital fossa of the arm, then returned to that or another vein minus the collected or removed components/constituents. Replacement fluid is added if required.
