The results of the laboratory parameters (leukocytes, thrombocytes, I/T ratio, and CRP) for neonatal sepsis diagnosis, vital signs (axillary temperature, heart rate, oxygen saturation, and non-invasive blood pressure) were compared with blood-gas analysis results during the treatment with adjuvant agents.
Blood-gas analysis was performed using an automatic blood-gas analyser (Radiometer ABL90 FLEX analyser, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Regarding POC relative to laboratory blood-gas testing, the guidelines state that in some facilities POC blood-gas analysis may offer little time savings compared to central-lab analysis of ABG.
Some of these offer basic blood-gas analysis with a subset of criticalcare analytes--most often creatinine and lactate--or less commonly offer CO-oximetry using a hand-held device.
We received 610 samples for blood-gas analysis
, of which 60 were [less than or equal to] 0.2 mL in volume and were insufficient for H index measurement.
Clinical practice guidelines on arterial blood-gas analysis
recommend voiding any results from samples that contain a blood clot because of the potential for spurious results.
The gold-standard sample for blood-gas analysis
is arterial blood obtained via an indwelling arterial catheter or by arterial puncture.
To become aware of the issues surrounding the use of heparin as an in vitro anticoagulant for blood-gas analysis
1st automatic, a blood-gas analysis
system, combines automation, information, and sampler technology to ensure correct sample/patient ID and operator safety.
It should be stressed, however, that many of the calculated or estimated parameters reported as part of a blood-gas analysis
assume that the values for the dissociation constant (pK) for carbonic acid, solubility coefficient (~) for C[O.sub.2], [O.sub.2] affinity of hemoglobin, and 2- and 3-DPG levels are those that are observed in normal, healthy patients.
