WorldWideWednesday - ASCP Podcast

The American Society for Clinical Pathology  recently launched their first podcast featuring Dr.Huy Pham speaking about TRALI or Transfusion associated lung injury.

TRALI is a serious complication from a blood transfusion that typically occurs within 6 hours of a transfusion occurring  It is one of the most common causes of blood transfusion fatalities in the United States and Canada. Being aware of this reaction is important for anyone working in Health Care so it can be treated quickly and properly to prevent a fatality.

I recommend heading on over to the ASCP Podcast and have a listen!
