    • Time points? (i.e. pre / post infusion for how many blood draws):  just post infusion 3-5 samples (dictated by Seattle who processes)
    • Does the nurse draw from the opposite lumen Busulfan infused? Yes
    • Do you send the specimens to lab on ice? Yes

     

     

    Thanks,

    Mary Lynn

    Hi all,

    I am curious as to how other institutions draw Busulfan Pk levels?

    • Time points? (i.e. pre / post infusion for how many blood draws)
    • Does the nurse draw from the opposite lumen Busulfan infused?
    • Do you send the specimens to lab on ice?

    Thank you! Best regards,
    Stephanie
