BACKGROUND: The influence of blood collection devices on laboratory tests is often overlooked. We have discussed here how blood collection materials and devices can alter haematological test results, with an emphasis on blood collection tube (BCT) additives. We have compared K2 & K3-EDTA vacuum tubes of same manufacturer IMPROVACUTER ® for CBC analysis. METHODS: Blood was collected in both tubes simultaneously. Samples were analysed immediately after collection (<15 minutes) and after 4 hours by MEK-6318J/K Haematology Analyzer...

Halothane, commonly used for anesthetizing humans and animals, is one of the most important volatile anesthetics and may cause the formation of free radicals during its biotransformation. Free radicals may lead to degeneration of liver cells. Vitamin E and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) containing selenium are two natural antioxidants, and these may protect the cellular lipid and lipoproteins against oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Therefore, the purposes of the present study were to investigate the probable protective effects of intraperitoneally administered Se and vitamin E on liver enzymes and to determine some other hematological parameters in the halothane anesthesia of rats...

The hematic effects of hypoxia have been studied in 184 patients divided in four groups: 1) 10 patients with pO2 values in capillary blood lower than 43 mmHg; 2) 40 patients with pO2 between 43 and 50 mmHg; 3) 134 subjects with pO2 between 51 and 62 mmHg; and 4) 39 normal subjects (control). Hypoxemic subjects show higher erythrocyte concentrations than normoxemic ones, but without reaching the point of polycythemia and without significant differences in the hemoglobin concentration. The values of the mean corpuscular volume, the mean corpuscular hemoglobin and the concentration of the mean corpuscular hemoglobin show no significant differences between the groups...
