  1. ARC (American Red Cross) has issued a statement that almost 5,000 blood drives were canceled and a few hundred donation sites due to quarantines. They're trying to get people to start donating at hospitals and other "essential" sites. The physicians have ramped up elective surgery instead of delaying them. I think it's super selfish to waste blood products during a crisis of this nature when you don't know what the outcome will be or how long the quarantines will last, it's beyond frustrating.
  2. I just answered this question. My Score FAIL  
  3. Exactly! Prenatal care has always, and probably will always, be insufficient. Thanks for your help.
  4. I completely agree! I spoke with the physician to see if we can get her redrawn during one of her check ups to clear some of this chaos. Thank you soo much for your help.

  7. I don't see the question. How do we answer it?
  8. I actually just found out that she had a negative ABS on 5/24/16, fetal screen bleed of 45 mL and one rhogam shot was injected. Next ABS was 6/23/16 where Allo-D was entered because it could not be ruled out.
  9. No, there was not an antibody screen done during prenatal care, typically they only order the screens during delivery. Most OBs order ABS for first time rhogam recipients during prenatal care. This looks like the third pregnancy. She's been in the ER a couple of times. But I don't understand why she's getting rhogam if allo-D has been present since after the first pregnancy. Will it still be needed?
  10. We don't have to much information from the 2016 registration, but the current pregnancy had consistent prenatal care. All we know from the pregnancy in 2016 is that the antibody screen was positive with a anti-D pattern but no record of rhogam given.
  11. I wondered the same thing, but the allo-D was added back in 2016 and this is the first time we've seen her since then. I would've thought it was rhogam as well but I don't think they could track a rhogam injection during that time and that's the reason for calling the ABID allo-D instead of passive.
  12. Hi! I had a positive cord DAT. The mom had a hx of allo-D, couldn't be completely ruled out in the past and has not been tested recently, BUT she also received rhogam recently. Is it necessary to perform an elution? In this case, wouldn't it be redundant? I was wondering what you guys normally do. I performed, and charged for the elution anyway, but they only treat via bilirubin levels. What your thoughts?
  13. Thank you for adding me! I'm a Medical Technologist, been a generalist 13.5 years, and currently I'm over a blood bank In Georgia. Total tech years is 15 next month. I found PathLabTalk searching for answers to my difficult blood bank questions and you guys never disappoint.
