What happens if you get a blood transfusion with the wrong blood type?
Even though a patient's own blood type is the first choice for blood transfusions, it's not always available at the blood bank. Try to save some patients' lives and learn about human blood types!
In conjunction with Phase I of Canadian Blood Services' national public cord blood bank becoming operational, the Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells (HPC), Cord Blood Circular of information will be coming soon.
Three new Circulars of Information, October 2012 version, are now available.
The format and content focus on the Circulars' role as extensions of component labels. The major changes to all three circulars include updates to: typical unit content (table 1), estimated residual risk (table 2), and the references section as well as several editorial changes including the addition of page numbering.
