A 7-month-old male presented with developmental delay and multiple congenital anomalies. He was found to have partial trisomy for the distal segment of chromosome 15 (q22-qter). Chromosome analysis of the mother showed a reciprocal balanced translocation between long arms of chromosome 6 and 15, t (6;15)(q26;q22).
INTRODUCTION Blood gas (BG) analysis is required for management of critically ill patients in emergency and intensive care units. BG parameters can be affected by the type of heparin formulations used-liquid heparin (LH) or dry balanced heparin (DBH). This study was conducted to determine whether blood gas, electrolyte, and metabolite estimations performed… (More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Pre-analytical errors in sample collection affect the reliability of blood gas (BG) analysis. Amount of liquid heparin as anticoagulant in samples for BG can affect results by its dilutional direct binding and compositional effects. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of varying amounts of heparin in blood samples on results.… (More)
