    Specimen-handling, Serum, Plasma, Whole blood: Serum, Plasma, Whole blood #physicians #transport


    #

    Serum, Plasma, Whole blood

    SERUM, PLASMA OR WHOLE BLOOD COLLECTION

    Draw blood in the color-coded Vacutainer tube indicated in the alphabetical test listing. For serum or plasma, draw approximately 2 1/2 times the requested volume. For serum, allow the blood to clot sixty minutes and separate by centrifugation. For plasma and whole blood, completely fill the Vacutainer whenever possible to eliminate dilution from the anticoagulant or preservative and immediately mix the blood by gently and thoroughly inverting the tube five to ten times. Separate plasma by centrifugation. Transfer the serum, plasma or whole blood to a plastic transport tube (see Pediatric Specimen Tubes below). To prevent injury and exposure to potentially infectious material, do not ship frozen serum, plasma, or whole blood received in glass tubes or SST (glass or plastic).

    The color-coded Vacutainer tubes on the inside cover are recommended unless otherwise indicated in the alphabetical test listing. Color-coded pediatric Vacutainer tubes are provided to facilitate special handling.

    Most blood specimens can be obtained using routine phlebotomy techniques; however, there are some exceptions. The use of a tourniquet can cause stress and is not recommended in some cases. The patient s posture either sitting, standing or lying down, or the time of day relative to the patient s sleep cycle can be important factors in some tests. Whenever specific issues of this nature are important, they will be listed as part of the specimen requirements or patient preparation for the individual tests in the General Test Listing section.

    WHOLE BLOOD

    Collect whole blood according to instructions provided for the individual test. Thoroughly mix the blood with the additives by gently inverting the tube eight times (four times in the case of light blue-top (sodium citrate) tubes. Maintain the specimen at room temperature or on cool packs before submitting to our laboratory unless instructed otherwise by the specimen requirements. Never freeze whole blood unless specifically instructed in the specimen requirements.

    If you store cool packs in the freezer, be sure to allow enough time for them to warm to refrigerator temperature before placing whole blood specimens near them. To minimize the risk of hemolysis, do not place whole blood specimens in direct contact with cool packs.

    PLASMA

    Plasma contains fibrinogen and other clotting factors when separated from the red blood cells. Evacuated tubes used to collect plasma specimens contain anticoagulant and, frequently, a preservative. The additive in each tube is specified on the label and tube stoppers are color coded according to the additive present. Consult the individual test specimen requirements to determine the correct additive/tube to use. Indicate that the specimen is plasma on the plastic screw-cap vial for transport and test requisition.

    Centrifugation: When plasma is required, or when not using a serum gel separator tube, follow these instructions:

    1. Draw 12 mL of whole blood for each 5 mL of serum or plasma needed. Collect in an appropriate collection tube.
    2. Centrifuge for at least 15 minutes at 2200-2500 RPM.
    3. Pipette the serum or plasma into a clean plastic screw-cap vial and attach the label. Do not transfer red cells to the vial. Screw cap on firmly to prevent leakage.

    SERUM

    Please check individual specimen requirements for restrictions. When using a serum separator tube, follow these instructions:

    1. Perform venipuncture as with any other blood collection device.
    2. Invert the tube gently no more than eight times. Further inversion may cause alterations in sample integrity.
    3. Do not remove the stopper at any time. Do not centrifuge immediately after drawing blood. Allow the blood to clot in an upright position for at least 30 minutes but not longer than 1 hour before centrifugation.
    4. Perform venipuncture as with any other blood collection device.
    5. Centrifuge for at least 15 minutes at 2200-2500 RPM within one hour of collection.
    6. Transfer the serum to a plastic screw-cap vial for transport to the laboratory.

    Note: Do not use serum separator tubes for therapeutic drug monitoring or toxicological analysis. The plastic serum separator material extracts lipophilic substances (most drugs), resulting in a falsely low drug concentration result. Instead, collect the specimen in a plain red-top tube containing no anticoagulants or preservatives. Transfer the serum with a pipette to a plastic vial for transport to the laboratory. Serum should be clear and free from all red cells.

    FROZEN SERUM OR PLASMA SPECIMENS

    Serum or plasma specimens need to be frozen only if specifically stated in the specimen requirement. However, in these cases, it is essential to freeze the specimen as soon as it is separated from the cells. Always freeze specimens in plastic tubes unless specifically instructed otherwise.

    Lay the tube at a 45 angle to avoid tube breakage caused by expansion during freezing. Do not freeze plastic Serum Separator Tubes. An exception is a specimen submitted in a PPT tube; the plasma can be frozen and transported in the original tube.

    Extreme cold may cause ordinary plastic labels to become brittle and detach from the specimen tube. Use clear tape to secure label to specimen transport tube.

    Note: If more than one test is requested on a frozen specimen, split the sample prior to freezing. Use a separate test requisition when submitting a frozen specimen; frozen and non-frozen specimens must not be submitted on the same test requisition. Indicate on specimen container and test requisition if specimen is plasma or serum.

    If more than one test is ordered on a single frozen sample, we will call you to choose which test you want performed before testing can proceed.

    COMMON CAUSES OF UNACCEPTABLE SERUM OR PLASMA SPECIMENS AND INACCURATE TEST RESULTS:

    HEMOLYSIS

    Hemolysis occurs when the membrane surrounding red blood cells is disrupted and hemoglobin and other intracellular components escape into the serum or plasma. Hemolyzed serum or plasma varies in color from faint pink to bright red, rather than the normal straw color. Grossly or moderately hemolyzed specimens may be rejected and even slight hemolysis may alter certain test results

    HEMOLYSIS

    HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA

    Icteric serum or plasma varies in color from dark to bright yellow, rather than the normal straw color. Icterus may affect certain determinations. Upon receipt of such specimens, we may request a new sample to assure results of diagnostic value.

    TURBIDITY (LIPEMIA)

    Turbid, cloudy or milky serum (lipemic serum) may be produced by the presence of fatty substances (lipids) in the blood. Bacterial contamination may also cause cloudy serum. Moderately or grossly lipemic specimens may alter certain test results.

    A recent meal may produce transient lipemia; therefore, we recommend that patients fast 12-16 hours before a blood specimen is obtained.

    RADIOISOTOPE INTERFERENCE

    Diagnostic procedures or therapy involving radioactive compounds may invalidate radioisotope assays. Obtain specimens for anticipated radioisotope assays before administering isotopes to the patient.


    Auto Transport Dallas – best car transport company in Dallas, TX #auto #transport #service #in #dallas, #texas, #auto #shipping, #affordable #car #shipping #rates


    #

    We are not the typical, late-arriving, price-gouging, couldn’t-care-less about your car, auto transport company from Irving, TX. We are a family-owned, affordable, door to door and reliable vehicle shipping company from Dallas, Texas and we take pride in having no middlemen. We have a no broker, no broker fee mindset. If you are in the market to find a competent auto shipping service provider that can deliver on time, BSK-Trucking is here to take care of everything. We will handle the entire process and we are fully licensed and insured. Whether you are a college student moving to a new city or buying a new vehicle (from a dealer auction, Craigslist, eBay, etc.), BSK-Trucking is here to help you.

    We offer the convenience of a particular pickup date, which you can specify, and we call ahead to schedule the delivery of your vehicle. When you ship through a broker, it is not a guarantee that the automobile transport service assigned to your account will be able to deliver the vehicle to your driveway. BSK-Trucking is an auto transport service that CAN and WILL pick up your vehicle and deliver it at the specified location (residence, office, a parking lot, etc.). Your vehicle will be shipped on an open-air car hauler truck the same kind of truck used by most of the automobile dealerships.

    WE ARE NOT BROKERS, AND WE DO NOT BROKER CARS OUT!!

    We do not broker out the cars you book with us to other auto transport companies. When you use BSK-Trucking, you can feel confident that our own truck will be transporting your vehicle. We only book cars depending on the availability of our trucks, because we only ship our cars.

    The car transport industry can be separated into three parts: Brokers, Carriers, and Lead Providers. The basics are the same. Your car will get shipped from point A to point B.
    The truth, however, is that the majority of people that you speak to about moving your car are brokers. You will typically only speak with the transportation company when they arrive to pick up your car.

    Car carriers are mostly independent owners/operators that do the difficult and important work. Carriers are those who actually take your car from destination A to destination B. The carrier is similar to a wholesaler when you purchase furniture or other expensive items. When you go directly to the source and cut out the middleman, you are able to purchase the item at a lower price. )
    T he same applies to BSK-Trucking. Rather than using a broker, book your transport with an actual vehicle transport carrier like BSK-Trucking from Dallas, TX, and you will interact with us directly. You eliminate the middleman, which means you are saving money. You will have direct contact with the people you have entrusted with your car. The lines of communication are open and clear, which is crucial when we are dealing with vehicle transport.

    Many of the non-broker car transport companies do not advertise. They have a base of customers and use Internet-based dispatch boards to fill the remaining space on their trucks. Anyone that is searching for car shipping solutions is much more likely to find a broker than a carrier because brokers have the time and money to target clients. Auto shipping truck owners invest their
    money into fuel, insurance, truck repairs and other operational costs. So most of those ads you see are more than likely a broker!
    An auto broker acts as an agent between the customer and the transport company. A Broker is a company that resells your job. When you call a broker, they will charge you a fee for shipping your car even though they will not be transporting your vehicle themselves. They will call several carriers for the job or post your vehicle on the load board for a much lower price to maximize their profit. Then, they wait for a carrier to accept the offered price and a deal is made.

    Brokers need Carriers to haul their costumers vehicle. Do not be fooled when brokers offer the cheapest price on the market. In actuality, Carriers do not have to pick up any car and they certainly will not do it if the price does not conform to the actual market rate. Your vehicle will end up staying on the load board for days (even weeks!) because no Carrier will transport your vehicle at the rate posted by the broker. While this is a nightmare for you, there is no problem from the broker s point of view. You have paid the deposit already (which is usually non-refundable) and instead of saving money, you have wasted money and time. You will wonder why your vehicle was not picked up at the promised time. Brokers do not have full control over the carrier they use and they cannot guarantee when your car will be picked up or delivered. After the job is passed on to a carrier, the broker steps out of the picture. They already made their profit. If a problem appears with pickup or delivery of your automobile, you are left to deal with the company the broker sold your job to. In addition, Brokers do not provide insurance to cover any damage that can happen. Your vehicle is insured under the Carrier s Insurance.

    Shipping brokers have relatively small overhead costs, no restrictions to enter into this business nor do they have any required training. If you have about $5,000.00 and good credit, you can start your own auto transport broker business. This results in ill-trained or inexperienced auto transport brokers to come in, buy leads and start pushing their services onto clients without truly knowing the ins and outs of this industry. There are thousands of auto transport brokers who are not only inexperienced but they are making promises to clients that they cannot keep. They will take your deposit and you are left to figure out another way to transport your vehicle. To top it off, brokers often promise to pay the carrier after they have collected your payment in full, yet when the car is delivered they refuse to pay the carrier. Revolting? Shameless? Unfair? Absolutely! However, this is the reality of what happens in this industry making it even more crucial to understand the difference between using a car shipping broker versus a carrier/auto transporter.

    Now, do not think that only bad brokers exist – this is not the case. There are hundreds of quality brokers out there willing to treat you like a human being and make sure you are satisfied with their services; you just have to be willing to do your homework and find them.

    Most Carriers do not have an online presence and because of this, it may be difficult to find out information on them. Please do not mistake a lack of online presence for a lack of credibility in the industry. After reading more about brokers vs. carriers, you can see the clear distinction between the two in terms of customer service and reliability. Yes, it may seem unnerving when you cannot find information about a specific carrier online, but think about this: Do you know anything about the broker you are dealing with? How about the carrier that they are outsourcing your job to? Brokers post your request on the online load board and jump at the first carrier that bites! How can you be sure they chose the best Carrier? News flash! They do not care about the best – they care about maximizing their profit by offering your job for a low price to the carrier. Most brokers do not even check out carriers prior to assigning the order to them. This is a bad situation for both you and the trucking company. Bad for you because you are overpaying the broker due to the broker having to pay him/herself and the trucking company. It is bad for the trucking company because he/she is being underpaid for the work being done.

    All of those good reviews you see on a brokers website? Are they actually referring to the broker or the carrier who did all of the work? How good can a broker be at posting something on an online load board? The sad part is that the transport company (due to its lack of online presence) is not being recognized for the amazing job that they did and the broker gets all of the credit.

    Motor Carriers are required to have cargo insurance; brokers do not. Brokers do not own the equipment being used to transport your vehicle so insurance is not necessary. Brokers will ask the carrier to make proof of their cargo insurance. That is about as far as that goes. Should there be damage to your vehicle and you contact the broker, they will merely let the carrier know that there is a damage claim and then be on their way. You are on your own.

    So how can you find out if an auto transport company is a broker or Carrier? From the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. At the FMCSA website, you can search specific companies by state, motor carrier license number (MC) and Transportation number (DOT). You can check to see whether they have an active or inactive status, which will indicate if a company is in compliance with current insurance regulations.

    Lastly, there are Lead Providers. These folks will mimic an auto transport broker site. They will gather your information to sell to brokers for $1 to $3 per lead. With us, you can rest assured that BSK-Trucking does not buy or sell leads!

    Air Medical Transport

    What is an Air Ambulance or a Medivac Flight?

    Air Ambulance or Medivac services are needed when an individual cannot travel via normal means of travel, such as by car or by commercial airline. Air Ambulance transfers patients for a number of reasons: the convenience of private air ambulance offers, a transfer back home to family from a vacation, or due to a higher level of specialized medical care is needed. Often, the patients require IV fluids, oxygen, and overall medical monitoring throughout the transfer or they are on a ventilator. The air ambulance is staffed with critical certified medical flight personnel – usually a critical care nurse and a critical care paramedic.

    State-of-the-art medical technology

    Air Ambulance aircraft are equipped as flying mobile Jet ICU’s Intensive Care Units (ICU) and are capable of care for the most basic patient to the Critical Care patient. All aircrafts are equipped with the most sophisticated advanced life support equipment, including:

    • Zoll M Series 12 lead Cardiac monitor- defibrillator
    • Full complement of Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) drugs
    • All critical care medications
    • State of the art LTV 1200 series transport ventilator
    • Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP)
    • Neonate incubators or baby pod.

    Repatriation Flights

    Air Ambulance Network also specializes in air medical transport for those individuals who wish to return to the country of their birth. Repatriation reconnects patients with their families. Often these flights are paid for by hospitals themselves and act in the best interest of both the patient and family.

    Air Medical Escorts

    The patient does not have to be in a critical care condition to take advantage of this service. If the patient needs to lie down and cannot tolerate sitting up then an air ambulance maybe right for you. However, if the patient can tolerate sitting up in a wheelchair a medical escort can be provided to accompany your loved one on a commercial flight. These medical escorts provide a high level of condition care yet without the cost of an air ambulance.

    What Kind of Aircraft Do We Utilize?

    AAN provides a variety of Advanced Air Ambulance Transportation Services from Critical Care Medflights to elective Air Medical Transport. We can source a wide variety of aircraft to fit your specific needs, such as:

    • Twin propeller
    • Private jet
    • Commercial airliner

    We have pioneered the industry since 1971.

    So there is hope for individuals and families of sick or injured loved ones to move safely and comfortably wherever that might take them to or from. One call does it all, 800 880 9451 or 727-934-3999.

    An object at rest tends to stay at rest, especially if you’re behind it when the light turns green.

    Natives who beat drums to drive off evil spirits are objects of scorn to smart Americans who blow horns to break up traffic jams.

    Mary Ellen Kelly

    Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead.

    A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.

    The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet.

    Greenpeace advertisement, New York Times. 25 February 1990

    Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

    Your grandchildren will likely find it incredible or even sinful that you burned up a gallon of gasoline to fetch a pack of cigarettes!

    Dr. Paul MacCready, Jr.

    A city that outdistances man’s walking powers is a trap for man.

    The car has become the carapace, the protective and aggressive shell, of urban and suburban man.

    Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media

    The car has become a secular sanctuary for the individual, his shrine to the self, his mobile Walden Pond.

    A commuter tie-up consists of you and people who for some reason won’t use public transit.

    You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

    Consider the man on horseback, and I have been a man on horseback for most of my life. Well, mostly he is a good man, but there is a change in him as soon as he mounts. Every man on horseback is an arrogant man, however gentle he may be on foot. The man in the automobile is one thousand times as dangerous. I tell you, it will engender absolute selfishness in mankind if the driving of automobiles becomes common. It will breed violence on a scale never seen before. It will mark the end of the family as we know it, the three or four generations living happily in one home. It will destroy the sense of neighborhood and the true sense of Nation. It will create giantized cankers of cities, false opulence of suburbs, ruinized countryside, and unhealthy conglomerations of specialized farming and manufacturing. It will make every man a tyrant.

    R.A. Lafferty, “Interurban Queen,” 1970, a short story set in the late 1800s (Thanks, Sam!)

    Automobiles are not ferocious. it is man who is to be feared.

    Robbins B. Stoeckel

    No one should be able to enter a wilderness by mechanical means.

    Garrett Hardin, The Ecologist. February 1974

    Our national flower is the concrete cloverleaf.

    The shortest distance between two points is under construction.

    Road rage is the expression of the amateur sociopath in all of us, cured by running into a professional.

    Driving a brand new car feels like riding around in an open billfold with the dollars flapping by your ears as they fly out the window.

    A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket and rejoices that the system works.

    I’m all about sharing the road with other drivers as long as they use the part that’s behind me.

    Each year it seems to take less time to fly across the ocean and longer to drive to work.

    If everything comes your way, you are in the wrong lane.

    It helps if you don’t see it as traffic but rather as thousands of individuals resolved to press on another day.

    Anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.

    The elderly don’t drive that badly; they’re just the only ones with time to do the speed limit.

    Making a left turn in L.A. is one of the harder things you’re going to learn in life.

    Lawrence Kasdan and Meg Kasdan,
