Acute hypotensive transfusion reactions are characterized by an abrupt and early onset of hypotension. This is often severe and lacks other signs of symptoms associated with more common causes of hypotension or transfusion reactions. Once the transfusion is stopped, the hypotension rapidly resolves, usually without the need for therapy.
