Hello, new MLT here. Does anyone have a physiological explanation for an oncology patient who went from critically low WBCs and PLTs to critically high WBCs and PLTs in one week. Patient redrawn to rule out labeling error. Experienced tech. said she had seen this critically low-to-critically high phenomenon once before in her career.
If a patient is receiving blood how long after can a quality cbc be drawn? If doctor insists the patient be drawn do you comment on the specimen?
