The purposes of this study were to examine the accuracy of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F, alpha2gamma2) as quickly measured by a hemoximeter but verified by high performance liquid chromatography [HPLC, including Hb F total (Hb Ft), acetylated Hb F (Hb F1), and non acetylated Hb F ( Hb F*)], and to predict the Hb F levels for different gestational weeks of neonates. Thirty-nine neonates of predominantly Hispanic and African American ethnicity, with gestational ages ranging from 25 to 38 weeks, were… CONTINUE READING
