The nice people at the Transfusion Evidence Alert sent their update today. Again loads to take in, but (in all honesty) just lately I’ve been struggling to get CPD stuff… there’s loads here with which I can overload my poor brain…
ARTICLE OF THE MONTH
The Fritsma Factor newsletter appeared in my in box today. You can read it by clicking here. It’s a very useful source of CPD focusing on haemostasis, and I’ve now discovered their educational module.
32773 – a thirty-nine-year-old woman booking at the ante-natal clinic requiring group and antibody screening
Her blood group reacted in every single well and so was uninterpretable but her antibody screen was negative.
89530 – a twenty-eight-year-old woman with sepsis requiring group & save
Her blood group was A Rh(D) Positive with a negative antibody screen.
The nice people at Research and Practice in Thrombosis and Haemostasis sent a rather good article on heparin induced thrombocytopenia today. You can see it by clicking here.
The article had clear and concise diagrams, was easy to follow… this is what CPD should be. If only it was. I subscribe to every mailing list known to science in the hunt for CPD. I get half a dozen CPD-related emails every day most of which are sadly of no use at all to me.
This one was good.
(I seem to have mis-dated recent blog entries...)
This photo appeared on the Facebook Hematology Interest Group page this morning. At first sight I almost laid an egg… then read the caption which said it was a composite made up from many other photos…
How many anomalies can you see?
