Avatar f tn The elevator were full of people I am not sure whether she scratched me when she passed by , when I got back home I found spots in dark color on my jacket, we all know that sometimes when nurses pull out needle from the tube, small amount of blood might spit out and could passible left on the tube .If the spots on my jacket was the blood spit out from the Anticoagulant tube(the one with green lid on) , will it remains infective in 10 minutes(since the blood will not dry up with anticoagulant)?
Avatar m tn I have read recently that green tea is not good during pregnancy because it blocks folic acid. I am 16 weeks pregnant and have been having a cup every morning. I had no idea about this until now, Should I be concerned about spine bifida?
475300 tn?1312423126 Collect whole blood in red-top tube, gel-barrier tube, PPT™, yellow-top (ACD) tube, or lavender-top (EDTA) tube. Do not use green-top (heparin) tubes. Centrifuge specimen within six hours of collection. Remove serum or plasma, transfer specimen to a plastic screw-cap transport tube (not ”pop top” or ”snap cap”), and freeze. Ship frozen on dry ice. Note: If PPT™ is used, do not transfer plasma; centrifuge specimen in a swinging bucket rotor centrifuge and ship frozen on dry ice.
Avatar f tn Just so that I understand, a bit of someone's residual possibly infected blood from the tube tip rubbed into my 2 min prior removed needle opening on my body cannot transmit the virus, no way, no how is that correct? Based on what i described(acupuncturist using no gloves when pulling out needles and handing patients the same neosporin tube for reuse) of this otherwise clean acupuncture place, should i have any concern contracting HIV/HEP C from continuing frequent use of this place?
Avatar f tn I thought I was pretty clear on things until I was told today that drinking green tea during pregnancy is a bad thing because it absorbs folic acid and prevents it from getting to baby, potentially resulting in neural tube defects! I read not to drink caffeinated beverages but nothing ever mentioned green tea specifically. For the last 3 and a half weeks, I have been drinking green tea (~ 2 cups a day) and am wondering if I have done any damage?
Avatar f tn What happened was the nurse seemed a little nervous and when it was time to move my blood from the syringe to the blood tube, the tube cap came off and then my blood was in the tube and was it out in the open? Because the tube was uncapped for a few seconds and she capped it back and put it in place. Won't that harm my sample? Given that the blood has been exposed to air and therefore loses its capabilities?

Avatar n tn However, several weeks ago I developed a bad sinus infection and along with it I started to have green/yellow discharge coming out of my right eye, which has since spread to both. I was given a strong dose of antibiotics for the sinus infection along with eye drops to combat the eye infection. Unfortunately, the drops and antibiotics has not stopped the discharge from my eye(s). I have seen an eye doctor and he said I don't have an eye infection.

Avatar f tn m going through the IVF. I would say to you. Yes you can get pregnant with only 1 tube but go easy on yourself. Eat healthy and exercise. I'm sure you'll be fine.
628735 tn?1273875777 Ok, so did a little looking and green tea has a lot of caffiene in it. At Starbucks you can get a green herbal tea that is called "refresh" it has a minty hint to it just like green tea. Hope this helps...but being green tea is used in ALOT of diet meds/potions I would suggest staying clear from it.
Avatar n tn Just a question. If your baby was stuck in your tube. How would you know only by an ultrasound?
Avatar n tn Get some bag balm. It comes in a green tube. It does wonders!
Avatar n tn About a year and a half ago my daughter had a high fever on and off for about three weeks. Her doctor thought it would be a good idea to have a blood test done to rule out anythng serious. Thank God all turned out well with that part. However it has been a constant worry to be because of the way the test was conducted. There was another child in the lab having blood work done so we had to wait.
Avatar m tn Women with B12 concentrations below 250 ng/L before pregnancy had roughly three times the risk of having a child with a neural tube defect as those with higher B12 blood levels. Those women whose levels were less than 150 ng/L, which is considered B12 deficient, had five times the risk of women with higher levels.
Avatar f tn What is this tube (Drain or T- tube? or is it PTC?), colour of fluid (is it green?). But in none of condition tube is places for weeks!! I think you should consult your doctor to know the reason for leaving the tube for such a long duration.
Avatar f tn Am I at risk for contracting HIV or Hepatitis B or C from a visibly dirty blood tube holder if another patients blood is present in the reusable vaccutainer opening (where the needle used on me was inserted)? A clean needle was used on me, but the vaccutainer was dirty. Can a previous patient's blood travel up that needle used on me and enter my bloodstream?

716841 tn?1289948186 The stool can become green on taking food rich in green leafy vegetables. If this is not the cause, then the stool is passing out of the large intestine at a very rapid rate so the bile does not break down. This can happen if you have malabsoroption syndromes. A viral infection can change the stool color to dark bottle green color. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar n tn ve had some testing because of lumpy breasts and a feeling behind my nipple like there is a tube attached to it (enlarged duct?)... I had a fine needle aspiration which came back fibrocystic changes then I had a mammogram and ultrasound that showed nothing then I start having some discharge (white to green in colour..
Avatar m tn The released stem cells then follow the concentration gradient of these compounds and leave the blood circulation to migrate to the organ where they proliferate and differentiate into cells of this organ, supporting the natural process of renewal
Avatar m tn Here is the scenario- I had blood drawn from me for a regular check up and the techs used a reusable vacutainer plastic tube holder which had a few specks of blood in the inside(where the tube is inserted) and in the place where the needle is screwed on the plastic holder.
