Influences of storage temperature and blood cell metabolism in different types of syringes were investigated. Experiments were performed on blood samples with normal and elevated leukocyte counts. After equilibration with gas mixtures at normal pO2 (86 mm Hg/11.5 kPa) and elevated pO2 (140 mm Hg/18.7 kPa), sequential blood gas analyses were done within one hour. Storage temperatures were 4 degrees C or 22 degrees C. In the first group of experiments we compared glass samplers with plastic… CONTINUE READING
