A Seminar on Laboratory Management of Hemolysis: presented at the 32nd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Blood Banks, Las Vegas, Nevada, November 5, [Carol A Bell, (Physician); Rosanne Sheehan; American Association of Blood Banks.
Sample hemolysis leads to unreliable laboratory results, delayed diagnosis and patients suffering avoidable discomfort. Specifically, hemolysis may interfere with laboratory results due to release of intracellular components, dilution effects, Cited by: A 12 year-old Thai girl presented to the emergency department with fever and acute abdominal pain.
The patient was diagnosed with hemoglobin H disease (with 20% hemoglobin H) at 9 years of age after presenting with jaundice and microcytic anemia (total hemoglobin level g/dl).
Molecular diagnosis revealed that she was compound heterozygote of SEA type and kb. Sample hemolysis leads to unreliable laboratory results, delayed diagnosis and patients suffering avoidable discomfort.
Specifically, hemolysis may interfere with laboratory results due to release of intracellular components, dilution effects. In case of hemolysis, laboratory personnel should always ask for new sample (s). In case new sample (s) can not be obtained, it is the responsibility of the laboratory specialist to communicate the problem with the physician responsible for the patient and seek for the solution to the best of the patient care.
Hemolysis in the Clinical Laboratory Hemolyzed samples cause many issues in the clinical laboratory such as: False elevation of some analytes such as potassium and lactate dehydrogenase Color Interference with test methodologies that use spectrophotometry causing inaccurate results Increase in turn around time for results due to recollection andFile Size: KB.

Hemolytic anemia is defined as anemia due to a shortened survival of circulating red blood cells (RBCs) due to their premature destruction. There are numerous causes of hemolytic anemia, including inherited and acquired conditions, acute and chronic processes, and mild to potentially life-threatening severity.

Nicotine exposure increases markers of oxidant stress in stored red blood cells from healthy donor by: Effects of Hemolysis on Clinical Specimens. Hemolysis due to the breakdown of red blood cells is important to the laboratory because it can have an effect on laboratory results.
The effects can be the result of products liberated from the red cells themselves, or due to interferences with laboratory analyzers. Immune hemolytic anemia is classified as autoimmune, alloimmune, or drug-induced, based on the antigen that stimulates antibody- or complement-mediated destruc-tion of red blood cells.
AUTOIMMUNE HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is mediated by autoantibodies and further subdivided according to their maximal binding Size: KB. Hemolysis is a preanalytical variable that is difficult to control, however, the collection of specimens by phlebotomists has the capacity to lower the occurrence of hemolyzed specimens because of their specialized training in the collection of specimens.
Conversely, when specimens are collected by nonlaboratory staff, the rate of hemolysis. Hemolysis may be produced in the laboratory by various physical agents: heat, freezing, flooding with water, sound.
In certain situations it is used as a specific laboratory test for antigen –antibody reactions. Clinical and laboratory findings. Clinical features are described above. Laboratory findings and diagnostic tests are described in the section on investigation of AIHA.
Management. Due to the often transient nature of PCH, initial management is supportive. In the acute phase, intravascular haemolysis can be severe and blood transfusion may be Cited by: Hemolysis and hemolytic anemia can be classified in several ways, all of which are helpful in the patient evaluation and management: Intrinsic or extrinsic – Hemolysis can be caused by.
