We would like to thank Vaudran,
In our study, we had acquired complete blood count data of each sample and had preliminarily analyzed whether leukocyte count affected the stability of pH, partial pressure of carbon dioxide (
We observed that leukocytosis impairs the stability of pH and
The flow chart proposed by the Vaudran,
We thank all laboratory staff who were involved in the study.
Arbiol-Roca A and Imperiali CE were involved in the study conception, design, data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation as well as drafting, reviewing, and editing of the manuscript. Both the authors read and approved the final manuscript.
