The Clinical Pathology Improvement Program (CPIP) uses clinical pathology cases designed to strengthen the interpretive and administrative skills of pathologists.This Self-Assessment Module (SAM) features a challenging Transfusion Medicine case. You will be presented with information including an introduction, case presentation, laboratory findings, discussions, and a summary. The case includes a series of thought-provoking questions related to the case. These thought-provoking questions are designed as learning opportunities to check your knowledge and therefore are not scored.
After you complete the case, you will be presented with a five-question post-test assessment.
After completing this SAM eligible activity and post-test, you should be able to:
- Discuss the clinical utility of a “type and screen” test and be able to interpret testing results for blood type assessment.
- Describe the traditional screen and indirect antiglobulin test (IAT) reaction patterns for a patient with an alloantibody, autoantibody, or both.
- Outline the steps involved in the identification of a warm autoantibody (WAA) and an underlying alloantibody in a patient with a pan-reactive antibody screen and direct antiglobulin test (DAT) positive for IgG.
