18 November 2022 (Friday) - BTLP-TACT Exercise
I got the thumbs-down the last time I did one… let’s try another.
I was presented with two samples:
32022 - a fifty-one year-old chap in the orthopaedic clinic requiring group & save
He grouped as A Rh(D) Positive with a negative antibody screen
71616 – a forty-nine year-old woman in theatre requiring group & save for a cholecystectomy.
She grouped as O Rh(D) positive with a positive antibody screen (positive in cell 2). I requested antibody panels.
The IAT panel was positive in cells 2,3,5 and 6
The enzyme panel was also positive in cells 2,3,5 and 6
This corresponds to anti-E and anti-K
I got the green light this time
