Flashcards in ABO compatibility Deck (13):
1

ABO type is determined by

2 codom genes that encode glycosyltranserase enzymes

2

type O occurs when a person

lacks functional enzymes; typically occurs in frameshift/nonsense mutation

3

ABO compatibility is based on

red blood cell antigens
plasma antibodies

4

ABO antibodies are mostly

IgM

5

transfusions of incompatible cells result in

intravascular hemolysis

6

what can you give to anyone without rocking the boat

AB plasma
O blood

7

universal donor

O blood

8

universal receiver

AB

9

type O can get what plasma

O, AB, A, B

10

Type A can get what plasma

AB, A

11

forward typing tells us

patients red cells- mix with reagent antibodies- react w/ anti- a, means a blood

12

reverse typing tells us

patient's plasma
reagent red cell (A,B,O)--reacts with A-- must be B or O

13

immediate spin cross matching is the

final check for ABO compatibility-- hope to NOT see agglutination
