8 May 2014 (Thursday) - Pre Transfusion Testing
It's a few years since I was last crossmatching in anger, so I thought it might not be a bad idea to bring myself up to speed on the latest guidelines on pre-transfusion testing. "Guidelines for pre-transfusion compatibility procedures in blood transfusion laboratories" seemed a good place to start.
An interesting document; however I must admit that I only found the summary of key recommendations and the appendices useful. The rest of the article seemed to wax far too loquaciously, with whole pages of text which didn't actually say anything.
