The centre I used to go to had a policy ...no platelet transfusion above 30 unless actively bleeding.

I found there is also a lot of differences between doctors/institutions. One doctor refused a blood transfusion with HB of 56....next doctor came in and ordered 3 units of blood.....

You have to learn to speak out and advocate for yourself and let the doctor know if your not comfortable leaving the count sit at 33 and ask them to explain their reasons for not transfusing. They might have very valid reasons.

Good luck and I hope you find what you're searching for....
