Upon review of the testing, her physician orders pretransfusion testing and 2 units of packed red blood cells to be transfused, each over a 4 hour period of time. Her pretransfusion testing results are listed below. Review the testing and determine the next course of action. Proceed to the next page for an explanation of this case study.
