I am needing some help setting up electronic crossmatch in Meditech. I have everything else in place but can not figure out how to prevent EXM in patients who have mixed field reactions. I am wanting to be able to perform the IS serologically as I understand this is needed per CAP and FDA regulations. Has anyone else experience this. We are currently on version 6.08. Thanks in advance!
Hello Blood Bankers... Our facility is currently validating electronic crossmatching and I have a question... The AABB guideline for implementing an electronic crossmatch suggests having two separate sources of ABO/Rh anti-sera for testing the ABO/Rh. The second blood types should be from a separately collected specimen. Our facility currently draws a second specimen if the patient does not have a blood type on file in our Blood Bank. Is testing the initial and 2nd specimen with two different anti-sera's really necessary? Thanks in advance for your input.
