5,6) To determine whether repeating the analysis of specimen tests with critical results offered any benefit in ensuring or improving the accuracy of the results or in avoiding the reporting of false or erroneous results, we reviewed the absolute value and percentage of change between duplicate runs of 2627 specimens (498 HGB critical results, 493 WBC critical results, 551 PLT critical results, 533 PT critical results, and 552 APTT critical results).
Table 4 reveals that resource mobilization of the HGB and the PGB have shown an increasing trend.
Anemia due to iron deficiency (IDA) is microcytic and hypochromic, especially once the HGB level falls below 100 g/L.
Repeated measures ANOVA was used to compare the Hgb levels, iron indices, r-HuEPO and iron dosages, and costs related to r-HuEPO and iron use, to determine if there was a significant difference pre-, during, and post-implementation of the "Anemia Protocol".
The criteria for pre-donation were an Hgb greater than 11 g/dl and absence of active infection or uncontrolled cardiac disease.
3,16) In the current study, black females had lower red cell counts, HGB and HCT values in general (Table IV).
Only 10% of the outpatient group was below the normal range for Hct and Hgb.
Each robot comes with an HGB manual-control unit for easy setup and "teaching" the robot the desired positions.
True Hgb = measured Hgb--[Hgb of patient's lipemic plasma sample x (1 - microhematocrit)]
This is important because frequently people have unremarkable blood sugar on the particular day that the test is run, but their Hgb A1c is elevated, or conversely stress may increase blood sugar at a moment while Hgb A1c is low, showing that "white coat" blood sugar elevations happen just as do blood pressure elevations.
Abstract: To determine whether a proportional relationship exists between hemoglobin (Hgb) concentration and pack cell volume (PCV) in avian blood samples, Hgb concentration measured by a point-of-care portable hemoglobinometer and corresponding PCV were determined in blood samples collected from 128 birds comprising 13 avian orders.
Hemoglobin (Hgb) concentration in the resulting hemolysate was determined with an Hgb measurement kit from Pointe Scientific.
There is insufficient research evidence to support maintaining Hgb levels in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) at a level greater than:
