At St. Philomena’s Hospital, the blood center is a vital part of the hospital’s services. Here, ABO grouping and typing are performed to accurately determine an individual’s blood type, allowing for appropriate matching of donor and recipient when performing blood transfusions.
Antibody detection is also an important part of the blood bank’s services. This helps to identify any potential risks or complications that could arise from a transfusion. The Coomb’s cross-match is a key part of this process, and is performed prior to every transfusion.
In addition to blood transfusions, the blood bank also provides phlebotomy services for blood donation and collection. This involves drawing blood from donors and storing it in a variety of blood components, including packed cells, platelet concentrates, fresh frozen plasma, and cryoprecipitate.
Whether you need a blood transfusion or are interested in donating blood to help others, the team at St. Philomena’s Hospital’s blood bank is ready and available to provide the expert care and support you need.
