9) However, based on the findings of this study, immunosuppressed patients may develop severe disease while remaining leukopenic.
Within this study, we specifically evaluated 4 areas of performance important to our operation: (1) classification of WBCs, (2) manually produced peripheral blood slides, (3) leukopenic samples, and (4) neonatal samples.
Thus, protective isolation remained in use for a few days immediately pos-top and when patients became leukopenic.
Handling leukopenic samples is especially efficient.
Conversely, leukopenic patients have significantly lower concentrations of PCT during sepsis, with concentrations failing to exceed 2 [micro]g/L even during septic shock (97).
Of 79 cases, 19% were leukopenic (leukocytes <1 x 10E9/L), and 14% were neutropenic (neutrophils <0.
Previous studies (18,19) have shown that flagging sensitivity is dependent on the total WBC count, with a lower sensitivity in leukopenic samples and a lower specificity in samples with WBC counts greater than 10000/[micro]L.
From a practical perspective, we chose to avoid antigenemia testing in this study because of the high prevalence of leukopenic bone marrow transplant patients being tested (the antigenemia assay needs 200 000 neutrophils/mL) and the time-consuming subjective visual readouts that would have been necessary.
The fixed throughput of CBC/Diff at 120 samples per hour, even on leukopenic samples, provides fast results reporting to enhance service to clinicians.
