As a Post Script, I wanted to add that I'll tell you one example where
microwave heating is a BAD idea. I remember hearing as a resident at a Chicago
hospital where one of the other residents had a unit of frozen RBC's ready to
run in a transfusion, but hadn't allowed the time for proper thawing. You can
figure the rest.................
That's what I call a bad plan for microwaving.........
