Course Overview

Selecting, tagging and issuing blood components or products for transfusion can save a patient’s life, that is, when it is the correct product administered to the correct recipient. Examine how blood group systems and processes used in transfusion medicine impact the process, which starts with a collection of a suitable specimen for pretransfusion testing and ends with transfusion of the best product for optimal benefit. Explore adverse reactions to transfusion, including causes of hemolytic transfusion reactions (HTR) and identify immediate responses for patient care. Discuss basic concepts pertaining to Hemolytic Disease of the Fetus and Newborn (HDFN).

The skills obtained in this course will allow you to determine the role of ABO and Rh systems in transfusion, various types and purposes of blood components and products available for transfusion therapy, and how to manage blood components in your workplace.
TRAM101 is the first course in a series of Transfusion Medicine courses that are currently being developed.
