Since an increment of 1 in the Beckman LX20 hemolysis index value corresponds to an increase in plasma hemoglobin
concentration of approximately 0.050 g/dL, potassium concentrations increased by approximately 0.40 mEq/L (95% confidence interval, 0.38-0.43) for every increase in plasma hemoglobin
concentration of 0.100 g/dL.
We attributed the apparent plasma Pb contamination in a single sample from one subject to lysis of erythrocytes during sample collection and processing, based on a measured plasma hemoglobin
level of 20 mg/dL.
In 4 of the 20 study participants high plasma turbidity or coloration prevented an accurate plasma hemoglobin
The kinetic properties of the plasma hemoglobin
pool in normal man.
Patients were divided into two groups according to the occurrence of hemolysis during and after CABG: group 1 (n = 12) included patients who presented with moderate pre- and postoperative hemolysis (none or one of the seven blood samples with a plasma hemoglobin
concentration >350 mg/L); group 2 (n = 12) included patients who presented with substantial hemolysis (three or more samples >350 mg/L).

Quantification of plasma hemoglobin
in the presence of bilirubin with bilirubin oxidase.
The mean hemolysis-induced insulin loss was <10% when the plasma hemoglobin
concentration was <4 g/L.
The association between extracellular plasma hemoglobin
and the development of renal damage is well known [4-6].
Patients infused with this solution showed highly increased concentrations of plasma hemoglobin
A micromodifcation of the Drabkin hemoglobin assay for measuring plasma hemoglobin
