HOW TO PREVENT SEVERE EQUINE TRANSFUSION REACTIONS AND NEONATAL ISOERYTHROLYSIS?

A SIMPLE SOLUTION:

IN-HOUSE EQUINE CROSSMATCH TEST

ALL YOU NEED FOR A SAFE TRANSFUSION

The Importance Of Xm

IDENTIFYING A COMPLETELY COMPATIBLE DONOR IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE WITH MORE THAN THIRTY RBC ALLOANTIGENS IN SEVEN MAJOR BLOOD GROUPS (A, C, D, K, P, Q AND U) IDENTIFIED IN HORSES. THE A, C AND Q BLOOD TYPES ARE CONSIDERED AS THE MOST IMMUNOGENIC BLOOD GROUPS INVOLVED IN TRANSFUSION REACTIONS (ESPECIALLY AA AND QA ANTIGENS).

THE MOST COMMON INDICATIONS FOR BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS:

- ACUTE BLOOD LOSS FROM TRAUMA

- RUPTURED UTERINE ARTERY

- COAGULOPATHIES

- SURGERIES

- GUTTURAL POUCH MYCOSIS

- ACUTE ANEMIA

- NEONATAL ISOERYTHROLYSIS

IN HOUSE REAGENTS FOR A COMPLETE EQUINE BLOOD TYPING ARE NOT AVAILABLE YET, SO MAJOR AND MINOR CROSS MATCHING OF DONORS AND RECIPIENTS IS CURRENTLY THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO PERFORM A SUITABLE TRANSFUSION.

MARES MAY BECOME SENSITIZED AS A RESULT OF EXPOSURE OF A WHOLE BLOOD TRANSFUSION OR PREVIOUS PREGNANCIES AND CAN DEVELOP SUFFICIENT AMOUNT OF ANTIBODIES TO CAUSE NI. NEONATAL ISOERYTHROLYSIS CAN BE PREVENTED BY CROSSMATCHING THE MARE WITH THE STALLION PRIOR TO MATING OR IN THE MONTH PRIOR TO FOALING TO EVALUATE THE LEVEL OF RISK.
