  Summary: Autologous Transfusion (AT) is a form of blood administration with the donor and the recipient being the same person. The objective of this study is to present our experience and contribution of the AT programme in achieving a higher level of safety in chemotherapy treatment. We applied two types of AT in our Centre: 1) Pre-surgical autologous blood collection (PABC) – one or more blood units are taken in intervals of five to seven days, with the last unit taken at least 72 hours prior to surgery; 2) Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) – blood is taken immediately before or after anaesthetic induction and simultaneously replaced by the corresponding volume of infusion solution. From 2000 to 2003, we did seven PABCs and two ANHs. Only one patient received both autologous and allogenous blood. Based on the number of ATs done, it can be said that this type of blood administration is yet to be practiced in our Centre
Key words: autotransfusion, autologous transfusion, autologous blood, elective surgical procedures, safety in chemotherapy treatment
