Dear colleagues! Could you clarify for me please where you measure hemoglobin and hematocrit for transfusion? Central or peripheral lines (venous, arterial) or in capillary bed by heelstick? I failed to find much info about that. For example this paper https://doi.org/10.1053/j.semperi.2008.10.006 (pretty old one 2009) states that "central measurements are preferred". If so is the any difference between UAC and UVC hemoglobin and hematocrit? Many thanks!
