  1. How long does RHIG really persist? The package insert says one thing, but with Rh-loving methods such as solid phase, I feel like I see RHIG hang around a lot longer. I think this has implication for pregnant mothers who have suffered from trauma or miscarriage prior to their current pregnancy. Thoughts?
  2. Hi All, I was wondering if antibody titre is performed on a pregnant mother who previously had HDFN. According to the books, it mentions 'After the first affected pregnancy, the antibody titer is no longer useful'. Therefore does it mean that it doesn't matter what the antibody titre level is, and should be referred to fetal medicine specialist regardless? Or if there is more to this, I would be grateful for some enlightenment
  3. We have just learned that we have a 32 week pregnant IgA deficient mom admitting tomorrow for observation for the next 2 weeks with plans to deliver at about 34 weeks by C-section because of placenta previa and vasa previa. There is no record of anti-IgA testing that we can see. This is not her first pregnancy--G3P2. She is about 30 years old and was identified as IgA deficient 5 years ago. She is donating 2 autologous RBC and FFP units. I assume there is no extra risk for the baby. We are 3.5 hours' drive from our blood supplier. Any advice appreciated as we create a plan for dealing with possible hemorrhage.
  4. I know you are not supposed to antigen type anyone who had been transfused in the last three months, but what someone who is pregnant? Seems like those two go together a lot, but if it is a simple immediate spin or RT incubation, would it be accurate if she is showing a new antibody right before delivery? She already had an anti-E and today, for her C-section, and is showing an anti-c. I was going to antigen type her but couldn't find any info about whether it would be valid or not. Thanks!
