<ul><li> 1. </li></ul> <p> 2. Prof. Dr. Faten Zahran 3. Clinical Chemistry prepared by Dr. Akaber Tarek Biochemistry Department 4. Plasma &amp; Serum </p> <ul><li>Plasma </li></ul> <ul><li>Blood + clotting factor </li></ul> <ul><li>Formed elements. </li></ul> <ul><li>Contain fibrinogen &amp; pr-othrombin. </li></ul> <ul><li>No thrombin is formed. </li></ul> <ul><li>Serum </li></ul> <ul><li>Blood clotting factor. </li></ul> <ul><li>Formed elements. </li></ul> <ul><li>No fibrinogen&amp; pr-othrombin. </li></ul> <ul><li>Thrombin formed during clotting process . </li></ul> <p> 5. 6. Preparation of samples </p> <ul><li>Serum : </li></ul> <ul><li>Blood is taken in clean tube.</li></ul> <ul><li>Put at 37 0c for clotting.</li></ul> <ul><li>Centrifuge the sample.</li></ul> <ul><li>Use the supernatant that isserum. </li></ul> <ul><li>Plasma: </li></ul> <ul><li>Blood is taken on anticoagulant.</li></ul> <ul><li>Mix well blood with anticoagulant.</li></ul> <ul><li>Use the sample that is plasma. </li></ul> <p> 7. 8. </p> <ul><li>To prevent hemolysis during vein puncture : </li></ul> <ul><li>Never draw blood through a hematoma . </li></ul> <ul><li>Remove the tourniquet as early as possible to decrease flow velocity and turbulence. </li></ul> <ul><li>Do not remove the collection tube until full. </li></ul> <ul><li>When mixing is required, gentle inversion is adequate. </li></ul> <p> 9. Procedures of tests </p> <ul><li>Take blood sample from patient in suitable tube. </li></ul> <ul><li>Put the sample in water bath 37 0 c for coagulation. </li></ul> <ul><li>Centrifuge the sample for 10 min. to obtain clear serum. </li></ul> <ul><li>Carry out the procedures according kits. </li></ul> <ul><li>Then make the calculation. </li></ul> <p> 10. Liver Function Tests </p> <ul><li>LFT used to detect, evaluated andmonitor liver diseases or damage. </li></ul> <ul><li>These include: </li></ul> <ul><li>Total protein (albumin &amp; globulins) </li></ul> <ul><li>Albumin (main protein made by liver) </li></ul> <ul><li>ALT or SGPT alanine aminotranferase </li></ul> <ul><li>AST or SGOT aspartate aminotranferase </li></ul> <ul><li>ALP alkaline phosphatase </li></ul> <ul><li>Bilirubin (total &amp; direct) </li></ul> <ul><li>GGT, LDH, PT (pro-thrombin time) </li></ul> <p> 11. 12. </p> <ul><li>ALT is an enzyme found mostly in the liver; smaller amounts of it are also in the kidneys, heart, and muscles. </li></ul> <ul><li>ALT test detects liver injury More Specific. </li></ul> <ul><li>Very high levels of ALT due to acute hepatitis. </li></ul> <ul><li>AST is an enzyme found mostly in the heart and liver, and to a lesser extent in other muscles.</li></ul> <ul><li>AST not specific. </li></ul> <ul><li>Very high levels of AST due to acute hepatitis. </li></ul> <p>ALT AST 13. </p> <ul><li>ALP is an enzyme foundin high concentrations in bone and in the liver. Smaller amounts of ALP are found in the placenta. </li></ul> <ul><li>ALP is not specific for liver diseases. </li></ul> <ul><li>GGT is an enzyme found mainly in the liver. </li></ul> <ul><li>It is the most sensitive liver enzyme in detecting bile duct problems.</li></ul> <ul><li>A rise in GGT can occur even when there is no identifiable cause that is related to liver diseases. </li></ul> <p>ALP GGT 14. </p> <ul><li>The total protein test is a rough measure of all of the protein in the plasma portion of your blood. </li></ul> <ul><li>Total protein measures the combined amount of two classes of proteins, albumin and globulin.</li></ul> <ul><li>Low total protein levels suggest liver disease. </li></ul> <ul><li>A/G ratio is normally slightly over 1</li></ul> <ul><li>A low A/G ratio may reflect overproduction of globulins underproduction of albumin . </li></ul> <ul><li>Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma.</li></ul> <ul><li>Low albumin levels can suggest liver diseases, inflammation, shock, malnutrition &amp; kidney diseases. </li></ul> <ul><li>High albumin levels usuallyreflectdehydration.</li></ul> <p>Total Protein Albumin 15. Bilirubin </p> <ul><li>Bilirubin is an orange-yellow pigment found in bile.</li></ul> <ul><li>RBCs normally degrade after 120 days in the circulation. At this time, hemoglobin (the red-colored pigment of red blood) breaks down into bilirubin. </li></ul> <ul><li>Unconjugated bilirubin is carried to the liver, where sugars are attached to it, producing conjugated bilirubin.</li></ul> <ul><li>When bilirubin levels are high, a condition calledJaundice. </li></ul> <p> 16. Kidney Function Tests: </p> <ul><li>KFT used to evaluate andmonitor kidney diseases or damage &amp; the effectiveness of the treatment. </li></ul> <ul><li>These include: </li></ul> <ul><li>Urea &amp; BUN blood urea nitrogen </li></ul> <ul><li>Creatinine and creatinine clearance. </li></ul> <ul><li>Uric acid. </li></ul> <p> 17. Lipid profile </p> <ul><li>Lipid profile includes: </li></ul> <ul><li>1)Total lipids 2) Triglycerides </li></ul> <ul><li>3) Cholesterol4)HDL </li></ul> <ul><li>5) LDL </li></ul> <ul><li>These tests must be carried out after12-15 fasting due the high molecular weight of lipid molecules and the prolonged digestion and metabolism.</li></ul> <p> 18. Blood Glucose </p> <ul><li>Blood glucose level is one of the most important test in the lab. </li></ul> <ul><li>Glucose is very essential for all body activities. </li></ul> <ul><li>This includes: </li></ul> <ul><li>RBSrandom blood sugar </li></ul> <ul><li>FBS fasting blood sugar </li></ul> <ul><li>PPSpost-prondial blood sugar</li></ul> <p> 19. </p>
