Plasma electrolyte, intermediary metabolite, and hormone concentrations were measured in samples of 110 units of citrate phosphate dextrose blood being used for clinical transfusions. The most important changes from the physiological range were in sodium, potassium, glucose, and lactate concentrations. Mean sodium concentrations fell from 170 mmol/l at the beginning of storage to 156 mmol/l at the end and mean potassium concentrations rose from 7 mmol/l to 25 mmol/l. Glucose had a mean… CONTINUE READING
