Program Description
Reactions to cellular infusions are increasingly common, given the rapidly expanding arsenal of cellular products that are available to treat cancer and other diseases. This program will discuss the range of those reactions, spanning the spectrum from the consequences of infusing ABO incompatible progenitor cell products to reactions from components of the product preparation. Strategies for minimizing those reactions and treating them if they occur will be reviewed. Optimal reporting practices and grading of infusion reactions will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the causes of cellular infusion reactions.
  • Describe the spectrum of reactions to cellular infusions.
  • Discuss management strategies for infusion reactions.
  • Review optimal reporting practices for infusion reactions.

How to Claim Continuing Education Credit

  • Single Viewers: if you registered as a single viewer, complete the evaluation found on the "CE Information" tab after watching the video. By submitting the evaluation, you are attesting to watching the presentation in its entirety.
  • Group Viewers: This is applicable for groups/facilities that purchased Group Viewing access for this program (registration will be verified prior to processing a group viewing attendance log). Group Viewing Coordinators should submit the attendance log to within 72 hours of the completion/viewing date. Once AABB receives an attendance log, each participant on the attendance log will be granted access as a single viewer to this program and will be required to complete the evaluation in order to claim continuing education credit. Each participant will be required to have an AABB account in order to access this program/platform. If a participant does not have an account, he/she can create one using the same email address provided on the attendance log.
