Although identification of a recipient by one individual is acceptable, this is most commonly performed where possible by two individuals, one of whom is generally either a nurse or physician. This may not be possible, however, in all locations. Errors at this point are fortunately uncommon but can result in very severe reactions, occasionally with fatal outcome. This is a particular problem in situations where blood is being transfused under stressful conditions, such as rapidly bleeding patients in the operating room or trauma patients in emergency rooms.
B) Irradiation of blood products: Transfusion associated GVHD is very rare; not routinely indicated. (c) CMV risk reduced blood products: A concern for all CMV negative recipients of CMV negative allografts. II. Intraoperative considerations: (a) Potential need for massive transfusion: (Liver or double lung allografts) (b) ABO incompatibilities: Important for all allografts (c) Use of intraoperative salvage: (d) Use of aprotinin: (Liver transplantation) III. Postoperative considerations: (a) Allogeneic leukocytes causing chimerism (b) Cyclosporine associated HUS requiring plasma exchange (c) Intravenous gammaglobulins containing red cell alloantibodies, resulting in crossmatch difficulties.
In these cases, a more extensive cross-match (antiglobulin cross-match) procedure is performed, which is similar in principle to the antibody screen. This accounts for the delay often encountered in the availability of blood for these patients. After these steps have been completed, the blood may be dispensed for transfusion. A most important part of compatibility is correct identification of the recipient at the time of blood administration. There may be different procedures by which this is achieved, depending on the site of transfusion.
