Summary of "Stored platelet number and viscoelastic maximum amplitude are not altered by warming or rapid infusion."

Platelet transfusion is an important aspect of hemostatic resuscitation. Leading textbooks recommend never infusing platelets through warmers or rapid infusers, but there is no evidence to justify this position.

Behavioral thermoregulation in avian embryos: spectrum analysis of calls in warm and cold conditions.

During the last days of incubation vocalization is a form of communication between the avian embryo and the incubating parent. Commonly, embryonic calls increase when ambient temperature (Ta) deviates...

Platelet Contribution to Clot Strength in Thromboelastometry: Count, Function, or Both?

In thromboelastometry (ROTEM) the difference in amplitude between the EXTEM and the FIBTEM is considered an index of platelet contribution to clot strength (PCS). The difference in elasticity (PCS) is...

Fatal acute hemolytic transfusion reaction due to anti-B from a platelet apheresis unit stored in platelet additive solution.

Hemolytic transfusion reactions from out-of-group plasma in platelet (PLT) transfusions are uncommon, with most involving passive transfer of anti-A. Only rare reactions have ever been reported due to...

Cold storage conditions modify microRNA expressions for platelet transfusion.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA molecules that modulate gene and protein expression in hematopoiesis. Platelets are known to contain a fully functional miRNA machinery. While platelets used for trans...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Disorder characterized by a decrease or lack of platelet dense bodies in which the releasable pool of adenine nucleotides and 5HT are normally stored.

A rare, inherited platelet disorder characterized by a selective deficiency in the number and contents of platelet alpha-granules. It is associated with THROMBOCYTOPENIA, enlarged platelets, and prolonged bleeding time.

Mammalian pigment cells that produce MELANINS, pigments found mainly in the EPIDERMIS, but also in the eyes and the hair, by a process called melanogenesis. Coloration can be altered by the number of melanocytes or the amount of pigment produced and stored in the organelles called MELANOSOMES. The large non-mammalian melanin-containing cells are called MELANOPHORES.

Measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled in a given number of seconds during a FORCED VITAL CAPACITY determination . It is usually given as FEV followed by a subscript indicating the number of seconds over which the measurement is made, although it is sometimes given as a percentage of forced vital capacity.

Human alloantigens expressed only on platelets, specifically on platelet membrane glycoproteins. These platelet-specific antigens are immunogenic and can result in pathological reactions to transfusion therapy.
