Samples should ideally be collected into heparin tubes to prevent clot formation. Samples for glucose should be adequately preserved with fluoride. Samples for pH should be collected anaerobically into a heparinised blood gas syringe. The serous body cavities are mesothelial lined potential spaces surrounding the lungs, heart and abdomen. Normally, they contain a small amount of fluid that is an ultrafiltrate of plasma.
Clinical and laboratory parameters in the differential diagnosis of pleural effusion secondary to tuberculosis or cancer. Email: lantonangelo hcnet. The following parameters were analyzed: patient gender, age and pleural effusion characteristics size, location, macroscopic fluid aspect, protein concentration, lactate dehydrogenase DHL and adenosine deaminase activity ADA and nucleated cell counts. The effusions were generally moderate in size and unilateral in both groups. Lymphocytes and macrophages were the predominant nucleated cell in neoplastic effusions.
Correspondence Address : Dr. Background: Differentiating into transudate or exudate is the first step in the evaluation of effusions. Light's criteria is the standard but a significant number of transudates may not be differentiated based on these criteria. Hence, this study was done to know the diagnostic value of pleural fluid pf CP and pf to serum ceruloplasmin ratio CPr to differentiate the pleural effusion PE into exudate and transudate as compared to Light's criteria. Design: Cross-sectional descriptive study.
