22 December 2021 (Wednesday) - BTLP-TACT Excercise

Time for my second BTLP of the month. I was presented with one case – a seventy-one year-old chap in the out-patients department requiring Group & Save prior to a splenectomy.

He grouped as AB Rh(D) Positive with an antibody screen positive in cells 2 & 3.

I requested antibody panels.
The enzyme panel and IAT panel were both negative in the first two cells and was positive in cells 3-10. This would be anti-c but doesn’t exclude anti-E, anti-Lu(a) or anti-Kp(a)

(As I’ve mentioned before, anti Lu(a) is not covered in the screening antigram.)

I got the green light…
