Subject:       Blood Group O+ Births

 

Request:

I am asking if you have a specific protocol regarding babies born to mothers with blood group O positive? Our current protocol is to do cord blood tests for those babies including: cbc, bilirubin level, blood group and cbc. I hope you can provide me with your protocol if present to compare it with our policy.

 

 

Response:

We do not have a protocol for O positive babies and blood tests.
