TU1-2: Will Rare Blood be There When Needed? Meeting Exquisitely Rare Blood Requests, One Patient at a Time,American Rare Donor Program and Collaborators


Oct 22, 2019 7:00am ‐ Oct 22, 2019 8:30am

Description

Provision of rare blood to meet transfusion needs of patients requires an extremely personalized approach to their management and to the specific donor recruitment. The ARDP and its 87 domestic member facilities work to provide rare antigen negative blood products. While 65% of rare blood requests are met with liquid units, other requests go unfilled. For these exquisitely rare types, a concentrated effort is needed to ensure their blood needs can be met.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the rare donor categories of the American Rare Donor Program.
  • Analyze the challenges inherent in provision of rare units for patients with complex transfusion needs.
  • Evaluate the need for future testing algorithms to identify rare blood donors.
