Possible cause: " data suggest that increased activity of vasoconstrictors in the recipient plasma may be responsible for the development of hypertension after multiple blood transfusions." from a study: http://www.Google.Com/url?Sa=t&rct=j&q=transfusion%20related%20hypertension&source=web&cd=2&sqi=2&ved=0cgwqfjab&url=http%3a%2f%2fwww.Ijkd.Org%2findex.Php%2fijkd%2farticle%2fviewfile%2f95%2f84&ei=szmluntmoc-i0qg9t.
