13 August 2019 (Tuesday) - High Hb?

Here’s an interesting discussion. What’s your upper limit for phoning a high haemoglobin measurement?
The variation expressed by the different contributors to the group was amazing.

Sometimes I worry about the regulation of medical laboratories. We all have to conform to very stringent guidelines… but something as important as an upper limit for a haemoglobin assay is really whatever you want it to be.

Is it too late to revisit the ISO standards and look at what should actually be standardised?
