The Essence: The Best of April 2022
The Artery is your community for finding solutions to your day-to-day clinical chemistry questions. Last month, several answers were found to questions ranging from "Can you solve the data joining challenge?" to “Has your laboratory run into issues with unit notations from the laboratory information system (LIS)?". Read on for the most discussed on the Artery in April.
Can You Solve the Data Joining Challenge?
@Daniel Holmes, MD
Put your data analytics skills to the test with an all new data science challenge. This friendly game began in February of 2022 and includes a weekly challenge for members to solve. Do you think you have what it takes to solve these?
@Mithu Banerjee, MD
Arterians weigh in on the protocol for polyethylene glycol (PEG) precipitation for a specific patient diagnosis. Do different test tubes impact results? Let the Artery know your thoughts.
More Nomenclature and Units
@Matthew Wasco, MD
Has your laboratory run into issues with unit notations from the laboratory information system (LIS)? Laboratorians are finding that different LIS are converting unit abbreviations unintentionally, which can lead to incorrect meanings and confusion. Does your lab have any tips on how to deal with this problem?
