therapeutic phlebotomy

I need education I guess... for a therapeutic phlebotomy... is there a specific lab draw that is required for a specific diagnosis?  or, does a ferritin or HCT qualifiy for any diagnosis?  I guess I'm asking... what labs do you require and what time frame for a therapuetic phlebotomy?

Thank you!  Appreciate this forum!

Please read INS SOP

Please read INS SOP Therapeutic PHleobotomy. HCT are usually very high when this prescribed. The specific volume to be removed must be prescribed - no such thing as 1 unit or some other unspecified amount. Blood is very thick and viscous so flow is very slow.
