11 April 2019 (Thursday) - BTLP-TACT
Feeling absolutely washed out I deliberately activated the BTLP-TACT thingy this evening. Sometimes I might not be on top form when having to make these decisions…
It presented me with two cases.
So I cracked on with the lady with the AAA first. The blood group was inconclusive. The reverse group didn't match forward group and control was positive. This is *exactly* what you don’t want when you aren’t feeling full of beans, and is *exactly* what this simulator is for. As the antibody screen was negative I had no choice but to give then O Negative – I gave the 6 HT Neg units.
I then went back to the chap who was pre-TURP. He was O Pos with positive screen in cell 2. The IAT and enzyme panel were both positive in cells 3 & 5 which looks like anti-E with nothing else possibly masked. So I qave 2 units O Pos E Neg
And I got the green light. I was rather pleased about that.
