  1. Congratulations, I have not been on this forum for very long but you have already helped me in many ways. My presentation over Anti-G and its significance in OB patients was a huge success. I was asked to present it again at an university. Thank you for all you help.
  2. Hello all, I work in a level one trauma center that is extremely busy. Most staff members are ready to go when their shift ends. This has caused a lack of communication between shifts. We are exploring ways to encourage more communication but so far have run into resistance. We are considering putting a log at each station where staff can write down important information from their shift for the shift to follow. Is there anyone in this forum that has done this with any success? Do you have suggestions for other ways to open up communication? Do you have an example of a form you use to make this work? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
  3. If my memory serves me right the patient has 5 antibodies: S, Jsa, V, Fya, and K and she is pregnant.
  4. Hello all, We have a patient that has multiple Antibodies (5) and requires a titer. We just recently hired a new tech from another facility and she stated that they would use one cell positive for all antigens (if possible) to do a titer and then if the titer was significant they would split the titer out to identify which antibody was causing the high titer. I am curious to know if any other facilities practice this. Thank you for your input.
  5. Thank you all for your response. We will more than likely do an internal study to evaluate potassium levels.
  6. Hello all, I work for a level one trauma center and currently we set our expiration of our neonatal aliquots in a bag to expire in 72 hours. We are wanting to change our policy to reflect a 7-day expiration on neonatal aliquots due to information that we received stating that most facilities have a 7-day expiration and some even do 10-days. I would like to back our decision up with facts and am wondering if you set your neonatal aliquots to expire at 7- or even 10-days expiration where did you pull your data? Did you do an internal study on potassium levels?
  7. Thank you for the links, I love the blood bank guy.
  8. Hello all, I am new here and am loving all of the great information. I have recently volunteered to do a presentation on Anti-G at a local seminar. I work for a level one trauma center but we don't encounter Anti-G very often. I would like to cover how to identify Anti-G and the presence of one in a clinical case. Does anyone have a procedure they would be willing to share? I tried my local reference laboratory without success. 😒
