CACMLE Blood Bank & Transfusion Medicine Courses

231-Online: Transfusion Support in Allogeneic Transplant Patients


Contact Hours (Points): 2

This course covers the different types of hematopoietic transplantation (bone marrow, hematopoietic progenitor cell, and umbilical cord blood), transfusion protocols for ABO mismatched transplants, and serological problems which can occur in the blood bank with patients who have received hematopoietic transplants. Examples of the different types of ABO mismatched transplants are provided so that learners can correlate blood typing results with transfusion and transplant history and identify the best blood type to transfuse of red cells, platelets, and plasma. Course material is reinforced and learning is evaluated in the self-assessment exercises.

Product Description

Transfusion Support in Allogeneic Transplant Patients

Self-Study 231 – Basic to Intermediate Level

Contact Hours (Points): 2

Written by Virginia C. Hughes, PhD, MT(ASCP)SBBCM

Published 2012. Updated 2015.

The goal of this course is to introduce the learner to a variety of transfusion protocols for patients who have undergone a hematopoietic stem cell or bone marrow transplant and describe different serological tests which are currently used to determine the state of seroconversion of transplant patients.

Upon completion of this self-study course on HDFN, the learner will be able to:

  1. Define a major, minor, and bidirectional ABO incompatibility in patients who have undergone a bone marrow or hematopoietic stem cell transplant.
  2. Identify the appropriate blood type to transfuse in ABO major, minor, and bidirectional ABO incompatibilities in transplant patients given the donor and recipient blood types.
  3. List the patient populations in which irradiated products would be required and why.
  4. Cite dosage requirements for irradiated blood products.
  5. Compare and contrast autologous, allogeneic, syngeneic, and xenogenic transplantation.
  6. Lists serological tests used in determining the seroconversion status of a transplant recipient.
  7. Discuss what blood type to transfuse when the ABO interpretation is ABO unknown or ABO indeterminate in the case of a transplant patient.
  8. Compare and contrast a major Rh incompatibility and a minor Rh incompatibility.
  9. Identify the appropriate blood type to transfuse in Rh major and minor incompatibilities given donor and recipient data.
  10. Describe the concern for CMV infection in transplant recipients.
