  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has determined that dimension creatinine (crea) may produce depressed results up to 12.7% (or approximately 18 µmol/l) for a creatinine result at 133 µmol/l when haemolysis exceeds 300 mg/dl [0.19 mmol/l] of haemoglobin. dimension vista creatinine (crea) may produce depressed results up to 22% (or approximately 27 ìmol/l) for a creatinine result at 133 ìmol/l when haemolysis exceeds 200 mg/dl [0.12 mmol/l] of haemoglobin.Depressed creatinine results due to haemolysis would not be expected to significantly impact medical decisions when using this assay. the potential for injury is remote due to continued monitoring, additional diagnostic testing and correlation to patient history and presentation.
