Hi everyone, At our blood bank we're reviewing our policy concerning RhD incompatible platelet tranfusion. I'd like to hear about what sort of policies you guys have at your blood bank/hospital. - Do you administer RhD pos platelets to RhD neg patients? In what situations (always, only when there is a shortage of RhD neg platelets)? To which patient groups do you not recommend RhD incompatible platelets (women < 50 yrs, patients who receive frequent platelet transfusions)? - Do you have a different policy for apheresis and whole blood derived platelets? - Do you administer prophylactic Rh immunoglobulin to these patients (everyone, or selected patient groups)? And now for something completely different... - Do you have a policy concerning Kell positive donors and plateletpheresis? Do you defer these donors, or do you have a policy of not actively recruiting these donors for plateletpheresis? Cheers, Sari
