    BBANYS Town Hall Meeting: AB Plasma Shortage Crisis, What Can We Do to Meet Our Patient's Needs?

    Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at 3:00 pm Eastern | Via Zoom

    Approximately 4% of the US population are blood type AB. As it has no anti-A and anti-B isoagglutinin, AB plasma are thought of as universal and are frequently requested in emergent cases. Unfortunately, demand for AB plasma far exceeds the supply. As the universal plasma blood type this is understandable however this usage is often unwarranted and in many instances group A plasma can be used without complication.

    Please join us for a discussion on the topic and strategies to serve patients’ needs within the current inventory situation
