jesusisking  Why wouldn't it be platelet transfusion 1st? +
jesusisking  Just found the answer. Patient was stable and not actively bleeding w/ 30K platelet count. For this type of patient, start transfusing at <10K: +4
deathbystep1  well the question said "his gums started bleeding when he brushed his teeth". So wouldn't that be considered active bleeding? I was aware about the aafp guidelines as there was a similar question in Uworld as well. The only reason i chose platelet transfusion was because he was "actively" bleeding from the gums. Otherwise it was clear that he had pancytopenia and you need to do a bone marrow biopsy. +
zalzale96  Isn't bone marrow aspiration considered an invasive procedure and thus we should transfuse since his platelets level is below 50k? +
osler_weber_rendu  Acc to UW, in children transfuse ivig, steroids, anti D only if child has more than mucocutaneous bleeds. In adults it is done if the count is below 30k irrespective. +
