BACKGROUND The extent of preservation of clotting factors and incidence of transfusion reactions to noncommercial equine plasma is not documented. HYPOTHESIS Equine frozen plasma would retain its coagulation factor activity within the reference range and the incidence of transfusion reactions would be low. ANIMALS Ten plasma donor horses. Fifty clinically ill hospitalized horses receiving plasma were reviewed to determine the incidence of reactions. METHODS In vitro study and… CONTINUE READING
