    What is a Lt. Blue tube used for?

    • A.

      PT, PTT, INR

    • B.

      EST, CBC

    • C.

      Lytes Panel

    • D.

      BMP, CMP

    • E.

      FBS, GTT, Lactic, Blood Alcohol

    Correct Answer
    A. PT, PTT, INR
    Explanation
    The Lt. Blue tube is used for collecting blood samples for PT (prothrombin time), PTT (partial thromboplastin time), and INR (international normalized ratio) tests. These tests are used to evaluate the blood's ability to clot and monitor the effectiveness of anticoagulant medications. The Lt. Blue tube contains sodium citrate as an anticoagulant, which prevents the blood from clotting by binding calcium ions. This allows accurate measurement of clotting factors and helps in diagnosing and monitoring coagulation disorders.

      CMP

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. BMP
    E. CMP
    Explanation
    Grey/Red speckled or Tiger-top tubes are used for collecting blood samples for BMP (Basic Metabolic Panel) and CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel) tests. These panels are used to evaluate the overall health of a patient and assess various organ functions such as kidney, liver, and electrolyte balance. The grey/red speckled or tiger-top tubes contain a gel separator that helps in separating the serum from the blood cells, allowing for accurate analysis of the blood sample. The tubes are specifically designed for these tests and may contain additional additives to preserve the integrity of the sample.

      CBC, ESR

    • B.

      BMP, CMP

    • C.

      PT, PTT

    • D.

      Lytes Panel

    • E.

      Trace Elements Test

    Correct Answer
    D. Lytes Panel
    Explanation
    Green top tubes are used for conducting a Lytes Panel test. A Lytes Panel is a blood test that measures the levels of electrolytes in the body, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and bicarbonate. These electrolytes are essential for maintaining proper fluid balance, nerve function, and muscle contraction. The green top tube contains an anticoagulant called heparin, which prevents blood clotting and allows for accurate measurement of electrolyte levels. Therefore, the correct answer is Lytes Panel.

    C. Cephalic
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Cephalic. The cephalic vein is a large vein that runs along the outer side of the upper arm and forearm. It is commonly used for venipuncture and for the placement of intravenous lines. It is easily visible and palpable, making it a preferred choice for medical procedures.
