Change to Feto-Maternal Haemorrhage (FMH) Anti-D Calculation

Change to Feto-Maternal Haemorrhage (FMH) Anti-D Calculation

From 25/04/16 we have adjusted the way Anti-D is calculated in our FMH screen by flow cytometry. The bleed is still reported in millilitres as previously however the suggested dose of Anti-D required to cover the bleed also takes into account the uncertainty of measurement of this technique in our laboratory. This may result in a slightly higher dose than expected but will ensure that bleeds are appropriately covered, especially those requiring multiple injections.
