STAT OR EMERGENCY TESTS
STAT or Emergency Tests should be indicated by checking the appropriate box(es) on the regular requisition slip. It is essential that the physician's extension and/or beeper number be on the slip so that the lab may call him/her with the results if they are critical values. We ask your cooperation in reserving the STAT request for life-threatening situations where results are needed for immediate decisions about patient management.
The following tests are offered "STAT" by the Clinical Laboratory:
BMP (Na, L, Cl, CO2, BUN, Glucose, Creatinine, total Calcium)
Drug Screen (serum and urine)
CKI (CK, CKMB)
Body Fluid Cell Counts, Diff and Gram Stains
