Adverse Reactions to Transfusion

TRALI vs. TACO vs. TAD (presented 06/04/2020)
Instruction Level: Intermediate
Learning Objectives:
-Restate the clinical presentations, research definitions, diagnostic testing and treatments that distinguish TACO, TRALI and TAD.
-Discuss the different mechanisms of action for TRALI & TACO and how research into the pathophysiology and recipient risk factors led to the preventative measures that are currently in place.
-Describe areas of future research into these adverse pulmonary transfusion reactions.

Common Transfusion Reactions (presented 9/5/2019)
Instruction Level: Intermediate  

Learning Objectives:

-State the most important intervention when a transfusion reaction is suspected.

-Name the one transfusion reaction where it is acceptable to restart the transfusion if symptoms have resolved after treatment.

-List at least two patient risk factors for transfusion-related circulatory overload.


Adverse Reactions to Transfusion: Recognition and Management   (presented 5/16/2019) 
Instruction Level: Basic 
Learning Objectives: 
-Explain steps to prevent or limit the severity of adverse reactions to transfusion. 
-Recognize the importance of patient safety goals for identification of patients, patient samples and blood products.
-Identify signs and symptoms associated with common and rare adverse events and summarize steps to take in the event of a suspected adverse reaction.

Adverse Reactions to Transfusion: Laboratory Investigation (Part 2) (presented 4/25/2019)
Instruction Level: Basic
Learning Objectives:
-Utilize the CDC biovigilance/hemovigilance module’s standard terminology and definitions to manage adverse reactions to transfusion.
-Identify ways the laboratory can perform an extended investigation and the pathologists involvement in this investigation.
-List reporting requirements in the event of an adverse transfusion reaction.


Adverse Reactions to Transfusion: Laboratory Investigation (Part 1)  (presented 4/24/2019)
Instruction Level: Basic
Learning Objectives:
