AABB will host two audioconferences next month of interest pathologists who manage blood transfusion services. A Nov. 3 audioconference will look at hemorrhaging in obstetric patients and describe OB transfusion protocols. Presenters will list the common causes of OB patients' hemorrhages and discuss preventive measures for these occurrences as well as review special transfusion requirements for these patients. A Nov. 17 session will provide an overview of cold agglutinins, including resolving cold-reacting allo and auto antibody issues, as well as typical clinical issues associated with cold agglutinins.
