Volume of RBCs in random donor platelet 0.5 ml
Can ABO incompatible platelets be issued? yes
Immune refractoriness in platelets is most commonly associated with these antibodies antibodies to HLA antigens; rarely, with antibodies to platelet specific antigens
What is the blood product "Thawed plasma?" FFP or FP24 which has been thawed for 24 hours. It can be stored refrigerated for up to 4 additional days.
