Program Description: Reporting to the blood collection establishment (BCE) of Transfusion Adverse Reactions (TARs) thought to be due to an attribute specific to the donor or the processing of the blood product is necessary to enable the BCE to take action on co-components and manage donor eligibility. Many hospitals use more than one blood supplier and complete several different forms when there is a multiple transfused patient who has a reaction. Representatives from hospitals and blood suppliers recognized this challenge and developed the AABB Common Transfusion Adverse Reaction Reporting Form to simplify hospital communication with blood centers. This e-Cast will discuss when reactions should be reported to a blood supplier and include an overview of the form and examples of use of the form in the daily communications between blood suppliers and their hospital customers.
