25.9: Protocol 000004 – blood component dispatch acknowledgement

Two data line structures are defined within this protocol. The first is a single line containing administrative information (order no., dispatch no.), and the second is a multiple occurrence line with an entry for each item on the dispatch. To distinguish between the two line types, a line type indicator is included as the first field following the line number (see Tables 25.11 and 25.12).
