  1. Forgive my ignorance, but are the above stuck to the outside of the bag, and therefore measuring/indicating the surface temperature of the blood product ? The "storage vs transport" hairball will be debated well after we're all dust.

    Valid blood type

    "2.7.6 Ael Under usual conditions Ael cells are not agglutinated by anti-A or -A,B, although they do bind these anti bodies, as demonstrated by adsorption and elution [298,337–339]. Saliva from Ael secretors contains H, but no A substance. Serum from Ael individuals usually contains anti-A1 and may also contain an anti body that agglutinates A2 cells [337,339]. No A transferase has been detected in Ael serum or red cell membranes [232,287–289]. Serum H-transferase is weaker than that found in A1 or A2 serum [289]. No example of Ael

  4. I would just be a bit suspicious if say there was a + reaction with A1 cells and 4+ with B cells in an apparent group O - or vice versa; or very weak reactions in a young healthy adult.....a bit of common sense required, that's all

    Thawed Plasma ISBT Code

    Hello Kaleigh, Per ICCBA, you will need to carry over the container attribute, therefore you cannot use E2121 for all of them. You can use E2121 as the 5-day Thawed Apheresis Plasma code for E0869 and E1624 (the last two on your list). Below are the thawed codes you need. E2121 = Thawed Apheresis PLASMA|ACD-A/XX/refg E5548 = Thawed Apheresis PLASMA|ACD-A/XX/refg|1st container E5549 = Thawed Apheresis PLASMA|ACD-A/XX/refg|2nd container E5550 = Thawed Apheresis PLASMA|ACD-A/XX/refg|3rd container I hope the above information helps. Thanks, Dig

    Thawed Plasma ISBT Code

    You cannot use E2121 for all of them. Each of those frozen products have a corresponding thawed 24hour and a thawed 5 day plasma code of their own. You have to use those. We go straight from frozen to 5 day thawed so we only use those two. Here is a screen shot of our database.

  7. Our requirement (at Blood Bank insistence) is that the infusion has to begin within 15 minutes of checkout. We had problems with nurses checking out blood products before they made sure that the IV was good and without taking vitals, then wanting to bring the unit back 45 - 60 minutes later. Their policy says check IV and vitals before coming to Blood Bank to pick up units and the short time allowed to start the infusion kind of reinforces that. The number of wasted units dropped significantly after this policy was in place. We also use the policy shared by slsmith. If there is a dela

  8. We are going to put a hang tag with a fluorescent green label on our pathogen reduced platelets using the language suggested by Cerus - FDA approved as a substitute for irradiated product, meets AABB requirements for CMV neg, etc. etc. I'm not optimistic about many people actually reading the education materials.
