OBJECTIVES: After several hemolyzed blood samples were received in the laboratory, we investigated lipid emulsion/TPN as a novel cause of hemolysis.
DESIGN AND METHODS: Whole blood was spiked with lipid emulsion and TPN.
RESULTS: Hemolysis was proportional to the amount of lipid emulsion present in whole blood, with less hemolysis occurring in blood gas syringes compared to vacutainer tubes.
CONCLUSION: Collection of specimens in blood gas syringes may prevent hemolysis in patients on lipid emulsion.
