Jill M. Cholette, MD, is the lead author of an article published in the January Pediatric Critical Care Medicine titled, “Children with Single-Ventricle Physiology Do Not Benefit From Higher Hemoglobin Levels Post Cavopulmonary Connection: Results of a Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Trial of a Restrictive Versus Liberal Red-Cell Transfusion Strategy.” The study found that a restrictive red blood cell transfusion strategy decreases the number of transfusions, donor exposures and potential risks in these children. Cholette is an assistant professor of pediatrics in the division of pediatric critical care medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York.
