    3.5 - 5.0
  2. Liver studies

    AST & ALT
    AST aka SGOT (think so/go)
    ALT aka SGPT
    • CARA says that both should be below 40.
    • If they are between 40 to 50, there could be a problem with the liver.
    • If above 50, definite hit to the liver.
  3. Potassium levels
    • 3.5 - 5.0
    • Too low - tachycardias
    • Too high - bradycardias
  4. Sodium levels
    135 - 145
  5. Calcium levels
    9 - 11
  6. Magnesium
    1.3 - 2.5
  7. Chloride
    96 - 106
  8. BUN
    10 - 20
  9. Phosphorus
    • 2.5 - 4.5
    • Inverse to Calcium
  10. Serum Creatine level
    • male: 0.6 - 1.2 female: 0.5 - 0.1
    • Good predictor for kidney function, a ratio of 20:1, BUN to creatine indicates adequate kidney functioning
  11. Creatine clearance
    • male: 107 - 139 ml
    • female: 87 - 107 ml
    • Best predictor for kidney function
  12. Platelets
    150,000 - 400,000
  13. WBC
    • 4,500 - 11,000
    • stress,anesthetics,exercise and convulsion can increased values
  14. Glucose
    70 - 110
  15. Cholesterol
    HDL-good
    LDL-bad
    • WNL: < 200 mg/dl
    • Borderline: 200 to 239 mg/dL
    • High: > 240 mg/dl
  16. Hemoglobin
    • male: 14 - 18
    • female: 12 - 16
    • pregnant woman: <11
  17. Hematocrit %
    • male: 42 - 52
    • female: 37 - 47
    • pregnant female: >33
  18. RBC
    • male: 4.7 - 6.1
    • female: 4.2 - 5.4
  19. INR (International normalized ratio)
    • 0.8 - 1.1
    • (used w/prothrombin to monitor Coumadin therapy,for pt on anticoagulant therapy the values should be 1.5 - 2.00 x higher)
  20. PTT (partial phrothrombin time)
    • 60-70 seconds
    • (Used in regulating heparin therapy. Therapeutic range is 1.5-2.5 x higher then normal.)
  21. APTT (activated partial thromboplastin time)
    • 30-40
    • (Used in regulating heparin therapy,should be 1.5-2.5 higer for pt receiving anticoagulant medication.)
  22. pH
    7.35 - 7.45
  23. pCO2
    35 - 45
  24. pO2
    80 - 100
  25. HCO3 bicarb
    21 - 28
