  1. If you do not filter at the bedside, how far ahead can the syringe aliquot be made? Can the syringe aliquot be stored in the refrigerator prior to transfusion?
  2. Hello, We use Epic and Softbank for Transfusion Services in our hospital. We are updating the ordering process for fresh frozen plasma to be based on the patient's weight instead of having the physician request a specific number of plasma units. Has anyone else created a similar workflow? We are struggling to create a process that identifies the appropriate number of FFP transfuse orders without creating a labor intensive work-around for the blood bank or nursing. Thank you kindly in advance for your guidance!
  3. Thank you both! How often are you changing the water with the Helmer devices? And what type of water do you use? Thank you kindly in advance.
  4. Hello, We are a Level I Trauma Center and we rely heavily on our ancient Thermogenesis plasma thawers. It is time to replace these devices, and I wonder if anyone can recommend models that they use and are happy with. Thank you kindly in advance.
  5. Greetings! Is anyone experiencing unacceptable residual leukocyte quality control for leukoreduced red cell units using the Terumo WB-RP product? We have increased our QC sample number from 10/month to 60/month now that we have the ability to use automated residual WBC testing, and are experiencing some unexplained QC failures. Thank you in advance for your feedback!
  6. Greetings! Can anyone point me to the regulatory information that dictates whether or not thawed fresh frozen plasma that has expired prior to transfusion is or is not able to be relabeled as recovered plasma and sold to a plasma broker? Thank you kindly in advance.
