The presence of pre-existing hemostatic disorders in a surgical patient may pose difficulties in the care of patients during and after surgery. To reduce the risk of excessive hemorrhage, this article has stressed the value of a thorough medical history, physical examination, and appropriate laboratory assays before surgery. When these measures reveal no(More)
Preoperative cross match guidelines were developed from a review of elective surgical hemotherapy. Six elective surgical procedures were studied prospectively to determine the effectiveness of the recommendations. All six procedures demonstrated a substantial reduction in preoperative cross match ordering during the study period, although for only one(More)
For the year 1975, we examined 12,848 blood specimens using the type and screen as well as the crossmatch and detected 283 antibodies in 247 patients. Our screening reagent red blood cells were able to detect 96.11 per cent of these antibodies. If the antigen frequencies corresponding to those antibodies not detectable by our screening reagent red blood(More)
CONTEXT Febrile nonhemolytic transfusion reactions (FNHTRs) cause unwelcome interruptions during the course of blood product transfusions and necessitate measures to verify the nature of the reaction and to exclude certain dangerous reactions, such as hemolytic and septic phenomena. OBJECTIVE To examine transfusion medicine data to determine the clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of radiographic signs of degenerative joint disease (DJD) in a randomly selected sample of domestic cats. STUDY DESIGN Prospective observational study. ANIMALS Client-owned cats. METHODS Cats (n=100) from a single practice and equally distributed across 4 age groups (0-5; 5-10; 10-15, and 15-20 years old) were(More)
A recently available portable clinical analyzer (PCA), which examines sodium, potassium, chloride, glucose, urea nitrogen, and hematocrit levels on 60 microL of blood and calculates hemoglobin and osmolality levels within 2 minutes, was evaluated. Blood from 574 patients was drawn by emergency department staff, who immediately tested the samples with the(More)
Objective:Nontraumatic spinal epidural hematoma (SEH) during pregnancy is rare. Therefore, appropriate management of this occurrence is not well defined. The aim of this study was to extensively review the literature on this subject, to propose some novel treatment guidelines.Methods:Electronic databases, manual reviews and conference proceedings up to(More)
The clinical diagnosis of acute renal allograft rejection in immunosuppressed recipients can often be predicted or confirmed on the basis of characteristic urinary cytologic findings. Use of cytocentrifugation permits a simple, rapid, reproducible and semiquantitative means of preparing cytologic urinary specimens of diagnostic quality from small quantities(More)
