  • Polycythemia in Patients With Hereditary Hemochromatosis: Real or Myth? [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Clin Med Res 2019; 11(6):422-427
  • Asif S, Begemann M, Raza S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Elevated Hgb and Hct levels in HH may be secondary to increased iron uptake by erythroid cell precursors in the bone marrow, in setting of increased availability of both transferrin-bound as well as non-transferrin-bound iron (NTBI). Additional studies need to be pursued to explore the association between HFE mutations and secondary polycythemia.
  • Drawing blood from peripheral intravenous cannula compared with venepuncture: A systematic review and meta-analysis. [Review]

  • Coventry LL, Jacob A, … Jacob E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Further research is required to inform the evidence for best practice recommendations, including, if a protocol for drawing blood from a peripheral cannula is of benefit for specific patient populations and in other settings.Venepuncture can provoke pain, anxiety and cause trauma to patients. Guidelines recommend blood samples from peripheral intravenous cannula be taken only on insertion. Anecdotal evidence suggests drawing blood from existing cannulas may be common practice. Further research is required to resolve this issue. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
  • Safe phlebotomy reduction in stable pediatric liver and spleen injuries. [Journal Article]
  • JPJ Pediatr Surg 2019 May 06
  • Denning NL, Abd El-Shafy I, … Prince JM
  • CONCLUSIONS: A phlebotomy limiting protocol may be a safe option for stable pediatric splenic and liver injuries cared for in a pediatric trauma center with the resources for rapid intervention should the need arise. The differences in groups highlight the importance of utilizing this protocol in the correct patient population. Reduced phlebotomy offers the potential for reduced resource expenditure without any evidence of increased morbidity or mortality.
