ABG ARTERIAL BLOOD GASES -To determine if you have an imbalance in the amount of oxygen gas (O2) or carbon dioxide gas (CO2) in your blood or an acid-base imbalance, which may indicate a respiratory (lung/breathing), metabolic, or kidney disorder
CMP - Gold SST - Fasting 8 hours COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC PANEL -broad screening tool to evaluate organ function and check for conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. The CMP may also be ordered to monitor known conditions, such as hypertension, and to monitor pati
Hct aka "packed cell volume" - Lavender HEMATOCRIT- The hematocrit is the percentage of the blood volume occupied by red blood cells.
Hgb - Lavender HEMOGLOBIN - The hemoglobin is the amount of oxygen carrying protein contained within the red blood cells.
BMP - Gold SST BASIC METABOLIC PANEL -ordered in the hospital emergency room setting because its components give doctors important information about the current status of your kidneys, electrolyte and acid/base balance, blood sugar, and calcium levels. Significant chang
BUN - kidney function BLOOD UREA NITROGEN -Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) is a waste product produced in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. High values may mean that the kidneys are not working as well as they should. BUN is also affected by high protein diets and/or strenuous
HCG - pregnancy test OR failing pregnancy HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN -routinely used to confirm pregnancy. Quantitative hCG testing (also frequently called beta hCG), measures the actual amount of hCG present in the blood. It may be ordered to help diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, to help diagnos
PT (coumadin/warfarin) - Light Blue-Sodium Citrate PROTHROMBIN TIME (patient ability to clot 10 to 13 sec.)measures how long it takes for a clot to form in a sample of blood. In the body, the clotting process involves a series of sequential chemical reactions called the coagulation cascade, in which coagu
PTT - heparin - Light Blue - Sodium Citrate PARTIAL THROMBO-PLASTIN TIME (patient ability to clot 20-34 sec.)
RBC RED CELL COUNT -a count of the actual number of red blood cells per volume of blood. Both increases and decreases can point to abnormal conditions.
