Abstract Objectives: To identify the frequency and gravity of the most common Adverse Reactions (ARs) related to acute transfusions reactions. Methods: A retrospective cross-sectional study ARs notified to the National Hemovigilance System from May 2002 to May 2016 was carried out in a Teaching Hospital of high complexity with 862 beds. The study was preceded by approval of the Ethics Committee of the institution, on 26 October 2016. Results: We analyzed 1.462 notification forms reporting transfusion reactions. The profile found was mostly of acute events associated to transfusion of Red Blood Cells, being Febrile Nonhemolytic Transfusion and Allergic Reaction the most frequent ARs

as for the gravity, the ARs were considered as mildAmong the cases considered as serious, these two types of ARs occurred in 13 (62%) of the cases. Conclusions: The study allowed a better evaluation and understanding of transfusion reactions, which allows improvement in the quality of the blood cycle and greater safety of patients undergoing transfusion therapy.
