[New method of determination of carboxyhemoglobin by the conductometric method of extraction of carbon monoxide from the blood].Med Pr. 1977; 28(5):365-76.MP
The newly elaborated method consists in the gasometric CO determination in the blood. The extraction of CO from the blood sample (0,1-1,0 ml) is performed by means of a simple device designed by the authors. The extracted CO is determined by gas analyser ANKO-3 or Ultragas 5. The comparison between the new method and iodometric method showed very high correlation (r greater than 0,9). A discussion follows on the advantages of the new method (quick, easy, high-sensitive and precise), its use can be suggested to laboratories which are equipped with a gas analyser ANKO-3 for other purposes. The new method can be used for numerous routine analyses as well as for scientific studies.
