  29. What is the #1 cause of transfusion related mortality
  30. How does post transfusion purpura occur?
    Patient is PLA1 negative. Exposure through pregnancy and/or blood transfusion develops antibody. Antibody attacks subsequent PLA1 positive platelets and destroys them, ALONG WITH NEGATIVE PLATELETS
  31. The FDA requires notification within what period of time following a suspicious death that is possibly transfusion related?
    24 hours
  32. What is the risk of acute hemolytic transfusion reaction?
    1 per 25k transfusions

    1 per 641k
  37. What is considered a major incompatibility for transplant?
    An A donor graft into an O recipient. Stem cells need to be processed to remove RBCs and prevent hemolysis. Give O blood until anti-A antibody is gone.
  38. What is considered a minor incompatibility for transplantation?
    An O graft donor going into an A recipient. Need to process graft stem cells to remove plasma products (washing out antibodies) to prevent hemolysis of recipient RBCs. Give O blood (compatible with donor)
  39. Which Ig's can cross the placenta and which cannot?
    IgG1,3 and 4 can cross placenta. IgG2 and IgM cannot.
  40. What is the screening test for fetal maternal hemorrhage?
    Rosette test. Add anti-D anitbody to maternal blood and then add Rh+ indicator cells. Indicators cells should rosette around fetal cells.
  41. What is the Kleihauer Betke test?
    Test for fetal maternal hemorrhage, quantitative. Treat maternal blood with acid. Fetal Hb is acid resistant and cells remain dark, whereas maternal cells become pale pink. Calculate % fetal cells.
  42. How do you calculate RhIG dosage based on KB%?
    • KB% x 5/3 = # vials
    • Take number of vials and round up 1 if .1-.4 over whole number. Round up 2 if .5 or more over whole number

    Full equation is: KB% x maternal blood volume (weight x 70ml/kg) = baby blood volume. Take baby volume and divide by 30 = # of vials.
  43. How do you calculate corrected count increment CCI?
    ((Plt pre - Plt post) x BSA )/ # plt transfused (get rid of exponent!!)

    7500 or more considered adequate
  44. How do you calculate post transfusion platelet recovery (PPR)?
    • (Total blood volume (pre-post plt)) / # plt transfused (use exponent this time!!)
    • 20% or above considered adequate
  45. How to calculate cryo dosage for hypofibrinogenemia?
    • 1. Calculate blood volume (pt weight x 70ml/kg)
    • 2. Calculate plasma volume (blood volume x(1-Hct))
    • 3. Calculate mg of fibrinogen needed (plasma volume x concentration change desired) -- subtract desired level from current level (i.e.150 - 50), multiple level change by plasma volume (100 x 3600 ml), divide answer by 100 to get units in dL
    • 4. Calculate bags of cryo needed. Fibrinogen needed / 250 mg cryo per bag
    • whew!
  46. How to calculate Factor VIII dosages?
    • 1. Calculate blood volume (pt weight x 70 mg/kg)
    • 2. Calculate plasma volume (blood volume x (1-Hct))
    • 3. Calculate FVIII units needed (Plasma volume x %increase desired), (i.e. 50% - 4%= 46%, PV x 0.46)
    • 4. Calculate # of bags needed (FVIII/80 IU per bag)

    Targets= hemarthrosis shoot for 50% levels, major surgery or hemorrhage shoot for 100%
  47. What product can be used to prevent Protein C and S deficiency?
  48. What is the typical volume for pRBC transfusion?
    350 mL (100 mL of additive solution)
  49. What is the typical volume of whole blood donation?
    450 mL
  50. What is the typical volume for platelet transfusion?
    50 mL for PC and 100 mL for apheresis platelets
  51. What is the typical volume for FFP?
    200 mL
  52. What is the typical volume for cryoprecipitate?
    10-15 mL
  53. FFP contains how much fibrinogen?
    typicall 400 mg or approx 2-4 mg/mL assuming FFP is approx 200mL volume
  54. Unfrozen FFP or FFP not frozen within 8 hours of collection has a decreased amount of which factors?
    Factor V and Factor VIII
