    Why does the excess air in a blood sample for blood gas analysis need to be removed immediately after blood collection?

    Generally, the oxygen or CO2 status is determined from the blood in a blood gas analysis. In order to do this, it is necessary to ensure that the blood sample is not enriched with oxygen from the excess air.

    Is it possible to connect Safety-Needles/Safety-Multifly® needles to the Blood Gas Monovette®, which has a Luer connection, and collect blood?

    Can the Blood Gas Monovette® be shaken well or swivelled to ensure that it is mixed well?

    No. Since the Blood Gas Monovette® which has been filled and has had the excess air removed does not have a dead volume, it is recommended that the blood sample is rolled carefully between the palms immediately after collection.

    What needs to be taken into account when finishing blood collection with the Blood Gas Monovette® at a vascular access?

    At the end of the blood collection, the Blood Gas Monovette® should be twisted in a clockwise direction to remove it from the vascular access. The same applies to connecting and disconnecting to/from an analysis device.

    How long after blood collection can a blood gas analysis (BGA) be carried out on a blood sample which has not been chilled?
