Lipids

Blood Sampling For Lipids

Serum total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol may be measured in a non-fasting sample. When serum triglycerides are also required the blood should be taken after a fast of 12-14h. In all cases the blood should be taken with minimal venous occlusion after the patient has been sitting for 10 minutes.

LDL is calculated from the total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglyceride concentration from a fasting sample provided that the triglyceride level is below 4.5 mmol/L.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
