Case Study 4-1: Hematology Laboratory Studies

J.E. had a blood test as required for preoperative anesthesia assessment in preparation for scheduled plastic surgery on her breasts. The report read as follows: Complete blood count (CBC) and differential Red blood cell count (RBC)—4.5 million/pL Hemoglobin (Hgb)—12.6 g/dL Hematocrit (Hct)—38% White blood cell count (WBC)—8,500/pL Neutrophils—58% Lymphocytes—34% Monocytes—6% Eosinophils—2% Basophils—0.5% Platelet count—200,000/pL Prothrombin time (PT)—11.5 seconds Partial thromboplastin time (PTT)—65 seconds Blood glucose—84 mg/dL The surgeon reviewed these results and concluded that they were within normal limits (WNL).

Case Study 4-2: Pathology Laboratory Tests

R.C., the manager of the clinical and pathology laboratory, received several surgical specimens taken from a 26-year-old female patient with a 4-week history of nonspecific pelvic pain. The specimens included several small containers of pink-tinged cloudy fluid labeled pelvic lavage (washing) for cytology, which R.C. took to the cytology laboratory to be made into slides and checked microscopically for abnormal cells. R.C. also received a tissue specimen labeled uterine myoma, a wedge biopsy of right ovarian neoplasm, and four jars each labeled pelvic lymph nodes. She took all of the tissue specimens to the pathology laboratory for gross and microscopic evaluation. A test tube half-filled with a cloudy gel and a cotton-tipped applicator labeled swab of pelvic fluid for culture and sensitivity and Gram stain was taken to the microbiology laboratory to be streaked on a culture plate and incubated to look for growth. Any organisms that grew out would be Gram-stained and tested for sensitivity to antibiotics that might be used in treatment.

The laboratory form was accompanied by a surgeon's note stating that the patient's preoperative diagnosis was cervical dysplasia with atypical cells and a positive urine leukocyte esterase, indicating a urinary tract infection. R.C. placed a copy of the laboratory forms and surgeon's note on the desk of the pathologist who was involved in carcinogenesis (cancer) research.
