26162 TEG 6S Citrated K, KH, RT, FF

TEG 6S Citrated K, KH, RT, FF
Test Code: TEG6S
Synonyms/Keywords

​TEG

Test Components

​Kaolin TEG (R, K, Angle, MA), Kaolin TEG with Heparinase to neutralize heparin (RH), Functional Fibrinogen Level (FFMA, FFLEV), and Rapid TEG (MA-RT)

Useful For

​Patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery for evaluating patient’s baseline hemostasis and ability for clot formation; monitoring any residual heparin post protamine; and/or guiding goal-directed transfusion therapy when there is intraoperative or postoperative bleeding.

Note: LY30 not reported since it is not FDA cleared on this test cartridge. For patients fully heparinized on bypass, only the R-H parameter of the TEG6S is reported. Display of the other TEG6s parameters for patients on heparin is dependent on the dose and effect of heparin on the patient's hemostasis.

Collection Processing Instructions

​Do not use a needle smaller than a 21 gauge for collection.  Obtain appropriate volume of blood in first tube labeled DISCARD.  Obtain full tubes for sample specimens.  It is best to store tubes by laying them on their side, instead of standing them in a rack.

Do not centrifuge sample specimen.  Keep at room temperature.

For Eau Claire orders - Deliver to lab immediately. Sample should arrive in lab within 15 minutes of collection.  Cannot be shared with other coagulation tests.
