When would you use cryoprecipitate over FFP?

When would you use cryoprecipitate over FFP?

Cryoprecipitate is used for hypofibrinogenemia, vonWillebrand disease, and in situations calling for a “fibrin glue.” Cryo IS NOT just a concentrate of FFP. In fact, a unit of cryo contains only 40-50% of the coag factors found in a unit of FFP, but those factors are more concentrated in the cryo (less volume).

Does fresh frozen plasma need to be ABO compatible?

Group O plasma-rich blood components such as fresh frozen plasma (FFP) or platelet concentrates should not be given to patients of group A, B or AB if ABO-compatible components are readily available (Table 2.2).

Does cryoprecipitate require cross-matching?

FFP transfusions must be ABO compatible, but Rh compatibility and cross-matching are not required (Table 35.1). Cryoprecipitate is prepared from FFP and contains concentrated factor VIII, factor XIII, fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor (vWF), and fibronectin.

In which situation is transfusion of cryoprecipitate preferred over fresh frozen plasma?

Cryoprecipitate is recommended when fibrinogen levels fall below 200 mg/dL.. Cryoprecipitate should be transfused to patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency only when they are bleeding or prior to an invasive or surgical procedure.

Can you give FFP and cryoprecipitate?

FFP and cryo can be used to treat a number of different conditions and diseases where clotting is a problem. For example, they can be given alongside red cells and platelets when patients have lost a large amount of blood or have problems with the way their blood is clotting.

Does cryoprecipitate have to be ABO compatible?

Plasma components (e.g. fresh frozen plasma, cryoprecipitate and cryodepleted plasma) should be compatible with the ABO group of the recipient to avoid potential haemolysis caused by donor anti-A or anti-B. Plasma components of any RhD type can be given regardless to the RhD type of the recipient.

Does FFP have to be Rh compatible?

FFP does not need to be Rh-compatible; anti-D prophylaxis is not necessary in Rh D-negative recipients of Rh D-positive FFP (Grade of recommendation: 1C+)3,4.

What plasma types are compatible?

Group AB plasma can therefore be given to patients of any ABO blood group and is often referred to as the universal plasma donor….Are they compatible?

Blood Compatibility
Patient Type Compatible Red Cell Types Compatible Plasma Types (FFP & Cryoprecipitate)
A A, O A, AB
B B, O B, AB
O O O, A, B, AB

What is the major difference between fresh frozen plasma FFP and cryoprecipitate CPP?

FFP is made from plasma which is separated from donor blood and frozen to minus 35° Centigrade to preserve it. Cryo is made from FFP which is frozen and repeatedly thawed in a laboratory to produce a source of concentrated clotting factors including Factor VIII, von Willebrand factor and fibrinogen.

Does blood type matter for cryoprecipitate?

Does Rh matter with plasma?

Plasma is free of red blood cells, leukocytes and platelets, and in general must be ABO compatible with the recipient’s red blood cells. Rh factor need not be considered. Since there are no viable leukocytes, plasma does not carry a risk of transmission of cytomegalovirus (CMV) or graft versus host disease (GVHD).

Why is plasma compatibility different?

Plasma compatibility If you require plasma you should only receive plasma that doesn’t contain an antibody which could attack the antigens on your own red cells. Group A patients have A antigen on their red cells, so they can’t receive group O or group B plasma as the anti-A will attack their red cells.

How do you administer fresh frozen plasma?

– What are the currently recommended clinical indications for FFP? – What are the risks of FFP? – What alternative therapies exist? – What is the current scientific knowledge regarding the effectiveness of FFP? – What directions for future research are indicated?

When to give FFP vs Cryo?
