What kind of composite filling was used, what placement technique (direct vs. Indirect), what kind of bonding method was used, was a liner placed before the fillings were placed. I have not encountered a problem like yours in over twenty years. I'd seek out a second opinion! ...Read more

Why the Rh is imporyant?

Why the Rh is imporyant?

Unborn child: Some people have the common rh sensitizing antigen on their red cells and some don't; it's inherited. If dad has this and mom does not, mom can make antibodies against it (especially after the first such baby); these can cross the placenta and destroy the child's red cells, causing severe illness or death -- once very common. Rhogam at delivery usually prevents mom from getting sensitized. ...Read more

What is the meaning of Rh 'd' positive?

What is the meaning of Rh 'd' positive?

Could Rh positivity still affect a child after the first years?

Could Rh positivity still affect a child after the first years?

Confusing question: The Rh positive blood type is quite compatible with a normal life as shown by the majority of humans on the planet. Any Rh incompatibility problems between pregnant mother and her fetus will become evident during pregnancy or in the newborn period. Babies who suffer from the attack of anti-Rh antibodies see that attack end after delivery and treatment. Existing damage may persist, but not increase. ...Read more

What is expected when a man of a+ and woman of o rh+ produces an offspring? Could this translate to any complications in terms of blincompatibilit

What is expected when a man of a+ and woman of o rh+ produces an offspring? Could this translate to any complications in terms of blincompatibilit

ABO: You are a+, the woman is o+. Women who are o+ carry anti-a and anti-b antibodies. The child will either be a+ or o+. If the child is a+, there is a chance that mother's anti-a antibodies will be high and cross the placenta and cause red cell break down. This doesn't affect the baby in utero but may cause high bilirubin levels (or jaundice) in the new born. ...Read more

What type of blood contains rh?

Rhesus blod type (Rh: Exposure to cell surface antigens on blood cells can trigger the production of antibodies. The primary antigens that need to be matched to prevent destruction of foreign cells by transfusion reactions are the a & b antigens. In addition, antigen d should also be matched. (the "d" antigen is one of the 50 rhesus antigens found in humans. If you lack this antigen on your cells you are rh negative. ...Read more

Could you explain a Rh factor to me?

A blood antigen: It's primary importance is in pregnancy when an Rh- mother marries an Rh+ father and the baby is also Rh+. The mother has a high likelihood of developing antibodies to the baby's blood cells in this scenario. This leads to hemolytic disease of the newborn which can be fatal to the infant. It can be prevented with RhoGam, etc. That block the antibodies. This is why pregnant mothers are tested. ...Read more

There's nothing really "negative" in any bad sense about not having it. However, folks who lack it make antibodies that destroy red cells (transfused, unborn child's) that do have it. It's a consideration in blood banking and pregnancy. ...Read more
