Mother Baby Blood Type Mismatch (Definition)

Mother Baby Blood Type Mismatch, also known as ABO incompatibility, occurs when a pregnant mother has a different blood type than the developing baby. Exposure to the baby’s blood type, either from that pregnancy or a previous sibling, causes the mothers body to develop antibodies to the blood type. The condition is dangerous as antibodies can cross the placenta and cause anemia (blood cell destruction), jaundice, or fetal ...Read more

What is the different between the blood group "a Rh 'd' positive" and "o Rh 'd' positive"?

Group A and O: The different is one has blood group o+ - and the other has blood group a+. Group o has no antigen a and b, but has antibody to a and b. So, group o is a universal donor- and the blood can be given to people with different blood group. Group a has antigen a, and antibody b. So, can receive group a or o blood. Group o only can receive blood group o if needed any blood transfusion. ...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

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

Doubtful: In the us, we tend to ignore the bcg status when interpreting the PPD skin test. There are many reasons for this, and one is that the effect (on the skin test) of the bcg tends to be small, and the degree of reaction we look for on the PPD is usually large (depending on your other risk factors for exposure and for active TB if you are exposed). ...Read more

What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

Transfusions: The major importance of being Rh negative (Rh-) is that you could have a severe, potentially life-threatening or even fatal reaction if you received blood from an Rh positive (Rh+) individual.
