EMDIS message: CBR_REQ

Description Cord blood unit report request

Although some data about the cord unit is available in the DONOR_CB message, most cord blood banks have additional data about the cord unit that may be helpful to the physician when selecting cord units for further testing. Based on the extreme variability of data listed on individual cord unit reports, it seems unrealistic to update the DONOR_CB message with all of the fields necessary to accommodate all participating registries. This message in some ways may be unique in that the actual request cannot be fulfilled via EMDIS. Ultimately the cord unit report would need to be faxed or emailed to the requesting hub (CBR_RES). However, the use of the ACK_ID field would allow the receiving hub to indicate that the report is being sent. The HUB_RCV decides to send the CBU report to either fax or email provided with the request. If possible, the method in SEND_PREF should be used. The CBR_REQ.REF_CODE must be reported on the CBU report (CBR_RES).
