T1801  Breaking Bugs- How a Group of Mad Scientists Attack the Problem of Platelet Safety

Presented by: Kent Carter, BS PharmD
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours:
1

The development of pathogen-reduction technologies began in the early 1980’s in response to the HIV crisis and continues beyond the first FDA-approvals in 2015. The journey is a story of the efforts of dedicated teams of physicians, chemists, engineers, medical technologists and, especially, microbiologists. As the screening test developers labored to detect fewer and fewer organisms, pathogen-reduction developers struggled with the opposite issue: growing sufficient titers to find the limits against highly contaminated units across the spectrum of potential organisms. In this session, we will chronicle their work and the worldwide experience with pathogen reduction. 

T1802  Immunohematology- Challenge Cases

Presented by: Nancy Benitez, OneBlood
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

The resolution of complex serological problems is puzzling. Three interesting and challenging immunohematology serological patient cases will be analyzed.  It will highlight in sequential steps the serological and molecular techniques to resolve them.  The attendee’s will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers to define which the best techniques are to get a correct answer, and provide transfusion recommendations to the patients.

T1803  Blood Bank Experience in ABOi Solid Organ Transplants

Presented by: J Peter Pelletier, MD
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

A short history concerning out of type solid organ transplants will be detailed. A review of titer determinations and the clinical significance in ABO incompatible transplants will also be discussed.  Talk will also include a discussion of the clinical practice at our institution with mitigating the risks for out of type transplants and experiences with ongoing concerns. The session will discuss the long term sequela with ABO incompatible versus ABO compatible transplants in survivability.

T1804  Evolving Therapies in Hematology

Presented by: Mary Berg, MD
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

Recent advances in the treatment of hematologic malignancies have taken advantage of a patient’s own immune system in fighting disease.  New therapies include monoclonal antibodies (anti-CD38 and anti-CD47) and modified lymphocytes (Chimeric Antigen Receptor [CAR] T-cells).  We will discuss these therapies and their impact on the clinical laboratory with regard to both interference with testing and the impact on transfusion support for these patients.

T1805  Up to Date Evidence- Based Red Cell and Platelet Transfusion Thresholds

Presented by: Richard Gammon, MD
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours:
1

The presentation will cover the past, present and future directions in transfusion thresholds. Participants will be able to test their knowledge at the end of the session through a series of interactive case studies. This course is a must for the busy transfusion service technologist and Medical Director.

T1806  Molecular Basis of Blood Group Antigens

Presented by: Lillian Castilho, PhD
Recording Date: 1/21/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

The elucidation of the molecular basis for most red cell antigens in recent years allows the use of molecular assays to determine genotypes and predict the red cell phenotype. DNA-based testing in immunohematology is a valuable tool used to resolve blood group incompatibilities and to support patients in their transfusion needs. This presentation will discuss blood group genes, DNA-based methods, and the molecular basis of blood groups required to introduce molecular testing in the routine practice. Case studies will be used to discuss applications, advantages and limitations of molecular testing.

T1807 Massive Transfusion: A Laboratory Perspective

Presented by: Mary Berg, MD
Recording Date: 9/11/18
Length of Webinar: 60 minutes
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

This presentation includes a detailed discussion of an actual massive transfusion case and shows through the laboratory test results the impact that massive transfusion has on the patient’s physiologic status.  This information is then reinforced by reviewing additional massive transfusion cases, including non-trauma cases.

T1701: Massive Transfusion and the Role of Plasma Components

Presented by: Matthew Carrick, MD & Beatrice LeBeuf
Recording Date: 1/25/2017
Length of Webinar: 60 min.
PACE/FL CE Credit Hours: 1

Nearly half of all trauma deaths occur in the first hour after injury and half of those that die do so because of major hemorrhage. With a much better understanding of trauma physiology than ever, we now understand that massively bleeding trauma patients first and foremost, need immediate aggressive control of hemorrhage. We also understand that patients with massive hemorrhage need rapid administration of packed red blood cells with equal and concurrent administration of plasma. A major challenge to successful trauma resuscitation revolves around the ability to get blood products; especially, FFP to the patient quickly.
