The question was asked a while about setting aside wasted blood for the blood draws and then retruning it, Lynn responded:
Â "You are absolutely correct. Return of waste blood from a syringe that has been disconnected and set aside during the remainder of the procedure is dangerous. Studies have shown that you are returning clots. A literature search will show a review article by Ann Marie Frey in JIN in 2003. Sorry but I could not copy from my database and paste into this message. Lynn"
My question is: What about using a stopcock and 2 syringes- the wasted blood would never be "disconnected", or are we still concerned about returning clots?
