About this webinar

Preanalytical errors in blood gas testing often go unrecognized and can impact patient care. This webinar explores ways to overcome hidden preanalytical errors in blood gas testing. During this hour, you will have the opportunity to engage in a live Q&A with the speakers, Prof. Simundic of Zagreb University in Croatia, and Dr. Suh-Lailam, of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, as they review the challenges with preanalytical errors in blood gas testing and what you can do to address them. They will share their perspectives and experiences from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Join this free webinar to learn more about

  • Identify the most frequent preanalytical errors in blood gas testing
  • Describe the impact of common preanalytical errors on patient test results
