  1. I think the EMTs for our helicopter service does transfusions. We just switch out their LTWB O Positive units every 30 days or so. The units hardly ever get used. I will try to find out more information if I can.
  2. 5.14.4 A new sample shall be obtained from the patient within 3 days prior to transfusion in the following situations: If the patient has been transfused in the preceding 3 months with blood or a blood component containing allogeneic red cells. If the patient has been pregnant within the preceding 3 months. If the history is uncertain or unavailable. Day 0 is the day of draw. 5.14.5 In patients with a history of previously identified antibodies, testing shall be capable of detecting and identifying the presence of newly formed clinically significant antibodies. Standard applies. When antibodies are detected, additional testing shall be performed to identify antibodies of clinical significance.

  3. Thank you Cliff! Sorry, I didn't see this reply sooner. Thanks again
  4. We use the same stain we use for hematology slides, wright-geimsa. If we see WBCs, the result is a qualitative "present" or "none seen". Usually, if there is an infection, it will be mostly neutrophils.
  5. Yeah, we use this too. But we don't have any point of care instruments for PTT. I only know of PT POC instruments. I'm sorry. Good luck.
  6. To whom this may concern, Last year, Paypal canceled my account for some reason. I called them but they gave me a vague explanation. So my premium membership wasn't renewed. Is there another form of payment we can use? Like a credit card or something. Thank you.
  7. Are you talking about this old workstation?
  8. In my opinion, this one was hard. I had to do research

  11. Mine does a little "ping" sound and then I click on it to see the add-on test(s). You can have it silenced if you want. Then you will only see the basket icon blinking when you received add ons.
  12. Did you try checking for rouleaux? Sometimes rouleaux can cause the immediate spin XM to be positive but the Antibody screen negative. All you need is saline replacement to see if its rouleaux. Or look at the cells under a microscope to check for rouleaux.

  16. My Chinese is a bit rusty, but if I am not mistaken, the underlined sentence states that we need to wash cord blood at least once before testing. Sorry, I am just kidding, I don't know any Chinese, I just read Yan's explanation.
  17. I doubt it. We QC our saline in duplicate every day. Thank you for your input.
  18. Yes, I was thinking wharton jelly too. This was a cord blood sample. Thank you
