Does anyone know whether ISILAB can do a type and match @ Lakeside for transfusion?   Do you have to make the trip to GDL


TIA,

Thanks Hocks!  In the States, my blood is drawn.....4 vials for match and cross match for every transfusion. (4 so far).   I assume Mexico does a similar process.   They don't just pull a unit of A positive, without going thru the process above, to avoid possible compatibility problems.

Transfusion is usually like much of your blood .... not a pint or two



Blood transfusion is generally the process of receiving blood products into one's circulation intravenously. Transfusions are used for various medical conditions to replace lost components of the blood. Early transfusions used whole blood, but modern medical practice commonly uses only components of the blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, clotting factors, and platelets.

Thanks Sparks, I know I just had 2 units of red cells last Thursday. What gets me is we donate blood and it takes maybe 20-30 minutes, per unit. We receive it takes 2-3 hours per unit. They say that they do it this way in the event we might have a reaction, which can be life threatening. I am trying to find out if the whole process can be done at Lakeside vs. GDL.
