Case Study 04 - Discussion Part 1 - Answer (Question 3)

What are some of the precautions related to using records in the TS?

Although records play a key role in the TS, there are precautions associated with their use. Some records may be used without confirmation but most require current testing:

  • Historical ABO blood groups are never used to issue RBC since misidentification and clerical errors can result in life-threatening hemolytic transfusion reactions.
  • ABO and Rh records on cards carried by patients are never used for transfusion purposes since they are totally unreliable.
