Serological Challenges In Pretransfusion Compatibility...

 Serological Challenges in Pretransfusion Compatibility Testing (9857-08) Build your problem-solving skills as you relate clinical information to explain certain serological problems. Learn how to resolve ABO/Rh discrepancies, analyze reaction patterns of a positive antibody screen and to formulate a plan to investigate alloantibody to a high indicence antigen. Consider the pathogenicity of autoantibodies and differentiate warm-reacting and cold-reacting autoantibodies as you conduct laboratory investigations of these antibodies.
