Cryoprecipitated AHF,if maintained in the frozen state at -18 degree C or below, has a shlelf life of: 12 months
The quality assurance program for Red BLood Cells, Deglycerolized should include regularly scheduled monitoring to determine: acceptable glycerol removal
What is an example of polyagglutinable red cells: are agglutinated by most adult sera
Tn(polyagglutinable) activation may lead to an : abo descrepancy caused by problems with the patients red blood cells
Mixed field agglutination encountered in ABO groupin would most likely be due to: A3 red cells
The use of leukocyte-depleted RBC's and Plt Concentrations is indicated for which patient group: patients with history of febrile transfusion reaction
Blood selected for exchange transfusion must: lack red blood cell antigens corresponding to maternal antibodies
ABO-hemolytic disease of the newborn: is usually seen only in the newborns of group O mothers
While performing routine postpartum testing for an Rh immune globulin (RhIg) candidate, a weakly positive antibody test was found. Anti-D was identified. This antibody is most likely the result of: antenatal administration of RhIg at 28 weeks gestation
