Regarding The Procedure For Taking A Sample Of Blood Gas Analysis?
Hello .. good evening want to ask why the blood gas analyzers are mostly mixed with heparin in their syringes. Please enlighten me
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Blood gas analysis is a blood test to measure the levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and the level of acid base in the blood. The sample examined was blood from an artery. The results of this examination can provide an overview of the condition of the pulmonary, kidney, and heart organs. The use of heparin in syringes (syringes) in this examination serves as an anti-blood clot so that the results of the examination are not affected by the presence of blood clots. Even so, the volume and concentration of heparin used also needs to be prepared at a certain value so as not to influence the examination results.
Do not hesitate to consult with your treating doctor if you want to undergo a blood gas analysis examination. To enrich insight, you can read articles about blood gas analysis. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
