Time for another BTLP-TACT exercise.
07981 A request for two
units of blood on a thirty-one year old male undergoing allogeneic HSCT
The chap was A Rh(D) Positive with a negative antibody screen. I selected two CMV-negative irradiated units of A Rh(D) Positive blood for him.
67653 A request for four
units of blood on a ninety-eight year old chap having a GI bleed
I accepted the sample on this one despite his address of “0 Sea View”. This chap was also A Rh(D) Positive with a negative antibody screen.
I selected four units of A Rh(D) Positive blood for him.
I got the green light despite the software having
gone berserk and claiming that I’d issued ten units of blood to the second case.
But a green light is a green light….
