16 October 2017 (Monday) - Potassium

Here’s something to consider from the Lablogatory people… very high white cell counts can give falsely elevated potassium levels.
It’s the sort of thing that us lab people should really be aware of, but in so many labs the people counting white cells have very little to do with electrolyte assays, and vice-versa.

I shall certainly be bearing this in mind in future…
(I may have mentioned this before – it rings bells…)
