Computer Crossmatches
Computer Crossmatches.  We are looking at going to computer crossmatching.  There are some concerns on our part about patients who have significant cold agg or anti-A1 issues with this process.  We recently had a patient with hemolytic cold agg that showed no evidence with routine testing (ABO/Rh, AB screen neg) but was only discovered when immediate spin crossmatching performed (rxns 4+ RT) What processes, if any, have institutions put into place to catch these patients if a computer crossmatch is used?  Have institutions shied away from computer crossmatch because of these issues?
