Processes and Software Building 43: Manual Whole Blood Processing

This was the HMC methodology for manual whole blood processing to prepare packed RBCs, plasma, cryoprecipitate, and cryo-poor plasma using blood bank centrifuges (not Reveos).  It did not include preparing platelets since we did not have manual buffy coat processing equipment.  In this algorithm we did not specifically release whole blood as a final product (although we did have the capability of activating this in emergency situations).
