19 April 2020 (Sunday) - BTLP-TACT Exercise


Time for another BTLP-TACT exercise…

I was presented with two cases:

40959 – a ninety-year-old man needing a group and save as a pre-operative workup 
This fellow had an indeterminate ABO group – cell group A; serum group O. Is this an A2 with anti A1 or a "cold" antibody such as anti-M?
The Rh group was clearly positive and the control negative.
The antibody screen was negative

23871 – a seventy-seven year-old woman also needing a group and save as a pre-operative workup.
I immediately rejected this one as the patient information on the sample bore no relation to that on the request form.

I got the green light
