Blood Banking - Quiz

This quiz is about blood typing and crossmatching


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1. Ms. Aranco has a blood type of A-, in emergency cases of blood transfusion she may be transfused with a blood type "O"+

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In emergency cases of blood transfusion, individuals with blood type A- can receive blood from individuals with blood type O+. This is because individuals with blood type A- have both A and Rh negative antigens, while individuals with blood type O+ have neither A nor Rh antigens. Therefore, there is no risk of an immune reaction when transfusing blood from type O+ to type A-.

    2. antigen A will coagulate with antibody b, antibody is b compatible with antigen a 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement states that antigen A will coagulate with antibody B, and antibody B is compatible with antigen A. However, this statement is false because antibodies are specific to antigens, and antigen A can only coagulate with its compatible antibody, not with antibody B.

    3. whole blood is used for crossmatching

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Whole blood is not used for crossmatching. Crossmatching is a laboratory test performed to determine compatibility between the donor's blood and the recipient's blood before a blood transfusion. In crossmatching, only specific components of blood, such as red blood cells and plasma, are mixed together to check for any reactions or compatibility issues. Using whole blood for crossmatching would not provide accurate results as it contains all components of blood, including white blood cells and platelets, which are not necessary for this particular test.

    4. antisera are used for blood typing

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Antisera are indeed used for blood typing. Antisera are a type of serum that contains antibodies specific to certain blood antigens. When testing blood for compatibility or identifying blood types, antisera is used to determine the presence or absence of specific antigens on the red blood cells. By observing the reaction between the antisera and the blood sample, blood typing can be accurately determined. Therefore, the statement "antisera are used for blood typing" is true.

    5. RH positivity is included in ABO compatibility

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    ABO compatibility refers to the compatibility of blood types between a donor and recipient. It is based on the presence or absence of A and B antigens on the red blood cells. RH positivity, on the other hand, refers to the presence of the Rh antigen on the red blood cells. ABO compatibility and RH positivity are two separate factors that need to be considered when matching blood types for transfusions. Therefore, RH positivity is not included in ABO compatibility.
