What you are identifying is almost certainly a strong anti-H in an Oh individual.  However, if the individual requires a transfusion, you will need to perform differential allo-adsorption (or something similar) to identify any other underlying clinically significant atypical antibodies (you can ignore any underlying Lewis antibodies, which are commonly also present).
