Sodium fluoride maintains glucose for 3 days. Sodium fluoride is not an anticoagulant; therefore, if plasma is needed for analysis, anticoagulant must also be present. In gray stopper tubes, the anticoagulant is potassium oxalate or Na2 EDTA that prevent clotting by binding calcium. When monitoring patient glucose levels, tubes for the collection of plasma and serum should not be interchanged. Gray stopper tubes should not be used for other chemical analyses because sodium fluoride interferes with some enzyme analyses that include creatine kinase (CK), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), or alkaline phosphatase (ALP).

Tourniquets Tourniquets are used during venipuncture to make it easier to locate a patient’s veins. They do this by impeding venous, but not arterial, blood flow in the area just below the tourniquet application site. The distended vein then becomes more visible and palpable. The most frequently used tourniquets are flat latex or vinyl strips (Fig. 2–26). They are inexpensive and may be disposed of between patients or reused if disinfected. Tourniquets with Velcro and buckle closures are easier to apply but are more difficult to decontaminate.
