A neonate was born at 32 weeks gestation and was transferred to the NICU. The neonate had an APGAR score of 8 at one minute. The neonate had a white cell count of 10.4 K/cu mm, hemoglobin of 16.4 g/dL, hematocrit of 45.2% and a platelet count of 126 K/cu mm. The mom has a medical history of being O Negative with a positive antibody screen due to Rh immunoglobulin (RhIG). The neonatal type and screen was sent to the lab for testing.

How would you report these results?

  1. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.
