or acidosis. As a result of an infant's compensatory mechanisms, blood pressure (BP) readings are usually within the reference range with mild or moderate hypovolemia. With severe hypovolemia, hypotension is almost invariably present. Laboratory evaluation Depending on the clinical situation and the suspected etiology of fluid and electrolyte derangements, some or all of the tests below may be warranted. Serum electrolyte, urea nitrogen, creatinine, and plasma osmolarity levels should be assessed. Keep (...) in mind that results of these tests, especially the creatinine levels, may still reflect maternal values over the first 12-24 hours. Serum creatinine normally declines postnatally, but very premature infants may have a delay in the decrease of serum creatinine levels. [ ] Accurate total urine output and total fluid intake may be assessed. In infants without urinary catheters or urine bags, diapers need to be weighed soon after voiding to reduce errors due to evaporation. [ ] Infants with reduced urine

(MPH) involves the cultivation of the pandemic influenza virus strain in embryonated chicken eggs, harvesting of allantoic fluid, concentration by ultrafiltration and formaldehyde inactivation, followed by whole virus purification using sucrose gradient centrifugation and diafiltration. The HA and NA antigens from the surface of the purified whole virus are solubilised by treatment with a detergent (CTAB). The solubilised antigens are then separated from the non-solubilised components of the virus

In addition, C5D serum was capable of promoting normal phagocytosis and intracellular killing of Staphylococcus aureus. The proband's serum was incapable of mediating lysis of erythrocytes from a patient with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria in both the sucrose hemolysia and acid hemolysis tests, and also

26. Biotypes of Haemophilus encountered in clinical laboratories. (PubMed)

Biotypes of Haemophilus encountered in clinical laboratories. The biochemical characteristics of 464 strains of Haemophilus influenzae and 83 strains of Haemophilus parainfluenzae isolated over an 18-month period are described. Of 22 characteristics obtained, only 6 were necessary to biochemically identify and biotype the isolates. The key substrates or tests were urease, ornithine, indole, o-nitrophenyl-beta-D-galactopyranoside, sucrose, and xylose. Five biotypes of H. influenzae and four of H (...) and from those over 20 years of age. Multiple isolates recovered from the same patient were almost always of the same biotype. Strains of H. parainfluenzae were isolated primarily from sputum, with others being isolated from body sources such as dental abscesses, gastric aspirates, and peritoneal fluid. An inverse relationship was noticed between hemolysis and mannose fermentation among H. parainfluenzae biotype III strains, whereas the relationship was absent among the other biotypes.

Purification The virus is removed from the inactivated allantoic fluid using continuous flow isopycnic ultracentrifugation and a sucrose density gradient, which concentrates and purifies the virus. The different fractions which contain the purified virus are collected and tested.

and are discussed elsewhere in The Manual. Diagnosis Flow cytometry PNH is suspected in patients who have typical symptoms of anemia (eg, pallor, fatigue, dizziness, possible hypotension) or unexplained normocytic anemia with intravascular hemolysis, particularly if leukopenia or thrombocytopenia and/or thrombotic events are present. Historically, if PNH was suspected, the acid hemolysis (Ham test) or sugar-water test was usually the first test done. These tests relied on activation of complement via (...) acidification of serum or high-concentration sucrose solutions. Currently, diagnosis of PNH is with flow cytometry, which is used to determine the absence of specific RBC or WBC cell surface proteins (CD59 and CD55) . This test is highly sensitive and specific. Bone marrow examination is not necessary but, if done to exclude other disorders, usually shows erythroid hyperplasia. Gross hemoglobinuria is common during crises, and the urine may contain hemosiderin. Treatment Supportive measures Eculizumab

counts may be seen at this. In this case, anemia may be caused by insufficient red blood cell production in addition to the hemolysis. Historically, the sucrose lysis test, in which a patient's red blood cells are placed in low-ionic-strength solution and observed for hemolysis, was used for screening. If this was positive, the (after Dr Thomas Ham, who described the test in 1937) was performed for confirmation. The Ham test involves placing red blood cells in mild acid; a positive result (increased (...) to the presence of defective surface protein on the , which normally functions to inhibit such immune reactions. Since the complement cascade attacks the red blood cells within the blood vessels of the , the red blood cell destruction (hemolysis) is considered an intravascular hemolytic anemia. Other key features of the disease, such as the high incidence of , are incompletely understood. PNH is the only hemolytic anemia caused by an acquired (rather than inherited) intrinsic defect in the (deficiency
