  1. my BTU is trying to do the validation and qualification program. one of the GMP auditor asked for the validation process for component making (focusing on RBC and FFP first). is there any example that I can use as a guide? thank you in advance.

    Pre Medication

    how about moving to my country, at least they still do it because they don't know... (trying to build a high hope, that they will change after they know)...

    Pretransfusion consent

    just want to confirm using an example.... if one thalassemia patient needs one blood bag of FFP it needs a new informed consent? or one hemophiliac (in my hospital there are hemophiliacs who still get whether FFP or AHF/ Cryo), and he needs to be transfused with PRC, then a new informed consent needs to be made? and for inpatients, won't the same rule applied? I mean a new consent to be obtained when they require a transfusion for a different reason.
  4. in QPS 7 of JCI, there is a need of analysis conducted for: 1. all confirmed transfusion reactions, if applicable to the organization etc my questions: 1. what does it mean by if-applicable? 2. what is the meaning of confirmed transfusion reaction, because most of the transfusion reaction reported in my hospital, is just that, only reported, no further investigation done? 3. if what happens in my hospital can't be classified as confirmed, does it mean that my hospital doesn't have to do the analysis, because there is no confirmed transfusion reaction? 3. what are the numerator and denominator used for the indicator? 4. do you have samples of the analysis that has been done? just curious, what is the reason you put if the number of transfusion reaction is increased, when I don't think it's controllable. thank you.

    plasma thawer requirements

    helppppp..... I'm trying to make sure that instead of using the waterbath which is already used for more than 10 years, it would be better to buy a new one of dry plasma thawer. when I said it has to be dry, someone said, ok put the blood bag in the plastic. when I said I don't know for sure if the temperature is still right, he said put a thermometer. at last I said it's not recommended anymore, he asked the literature. so, anyone, please help me with the standard, recommendation, or requirements of plasma thawer..... thank you before....

    blood bag disposal

    I do feel the same way.
  7. when I read this it reminds me of the things my teacher told me before.... "Working in transfusion area means putting one of your feet in the grave and put the other in the jail.... so it means, that you have to be very careful to make sure you stay in balance...." '
  8. thank you.... I was asked about that, and the report from the journal is a kind of promising. the eye is getting better, and the burn heals fast. but I haven't read the report of reaction. there is a doctor who said that after the xth application, there are blisters around the place of application. the doctor said that it might happen because of the minimal hygiene, not because of the blood. and it didn't happen again after that.
  9. how about nationally, do you give report nationally?

    Verbal Orders for Blood/Blood Products

    and expecting the doctor to come to bb afterwards? what if it is next to impossible? no verbal request allowed?
  11. indonesia, just wondering because I read that in some place, blood component (FFP) used as an eye drop, and I also read that buffy coat can improve the burn healing if put topically. so, there is still a problem of reaction after that kind of usage. is it part of the blood transfusion reaction report that was asked as part of hemovigillance survey, or not (since it's not transfused).
  12. the maximum minimum temperature for each blood bag or just the general temperature at the time the blood bags arrived? -just to make sure-
  13. sorry, I couldn't catch the meaning. when you determine the time, is it the time for FFP to change from 37oC to below 6oC? and if it is, is it the thaw time or the pool time? what is the definition of thaw time and pool time?
  14. is it supposed to be reported to the blood transfusion committee? just got two different research proposals to use the blood bag for topical treatment of the eye ball and for burns. one of the patients got swelling around the place the blood was put. is it supposed to be reported as blood transfusion reaction to the blood transfusion committee? thanks nova
