A question reaches us via Twitter by Susanna Fustolo-Gunnink: Are there neonatal intensive care units in which hyperconcentrated platelet transfusions are administered? @EBNEO @ccroehr @DrCGale @NeonatalResearc @cwsbattersby @RizKhanahmed @TimWatts1964 @BSantamaria8 @drpaulclarke @Colin37377735
My first post in your forum. Congratulations and keep up the good work. I would like to know your clinical prctice regarding diagnosis and management of NAIT. 1. Which combination of clinical symptoms and lab results are suggesting NAIT, taking into consideration that current anti platelet Ab detection has a high rate of false negatives? 2. What kind of trnsfusion product do you use. Random donor platelets, do you have typed platelets, do you perform mother platelet apheresis? 3. Have you come across any non-responders? 4. What about genetic councelling to parents of NAIT neonates? Dimtris Anastasiou Neonatology Resident Athens, Greece
