Q: In Dengue virus shock syndrome, what should triggers the blood transfusion?

In contrast to other clinical situations, Blood transfusion should be initiated early in hemodynamically unstable patients suffering from Dengue virus shock syndrome,                           in the face of a decreasing hematocrit, rather than following hemoglobin concentration.
