    Hi Stephanie. See answers below:

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

    • Time points? (i.e. pre / post infusion for how many blood draws). post only- follow the Seattle IV Q 6 Busulfan Pharmacokinetics Requisition.
    • Does the nurse draw from the opposite lumen Busulfan infused? yes
    • Do you send the specimens to lab on ice? yes

    Take care 🙂
