In a series of 1206 consecutive Rh-negative women who delivered Rh-positive infants, fetal erythrocytes were found in the maternal blood of 175 (14.5%) during the postpartum period. In 12 (1.0%) there was evidence of a larger fetomaternal hamorrhage than would be neutralized by a single 300-microgram dose of Rh-immune globulin. Except for manual removal of the placenta, no correlation was found between large fetomaternal hemorrhages and obstetric manipulations, complications, or surgery. Thus, the authors believe that all Rh-negative patients should be screened post partum to ascertain the adequacy of Rh-immune globulin prophylaxis.
