Serologic Tests on Newborn

Based on the results of the mini-panel, the laboratory concluded that only anti-D was present and that it was consistent with administration of RhIg at 28 weeks.

Patient A.D. delivered a 5 lb 13 oz female by C. section with serologic test results on cord blood as follows. Well washed cord red cells were used for ABO and Rh(D) typing to remove possible Wharton's jelly.

Before proceeding to the next page, evaluate if the infant's ABO and Rh(D) types are valid. You will be asked questions that assess basic knowledge of blood grouping practices and test results for newborns.
