Additional file 8: Figure S8. of Can we rely on out-of-hospital blood samples? A prospective interventional study on the pre-analytical stability of blood samples under prehospital emergency medicine conditions

Alpha-HBDH in Lithium-Heparin preserved serum (Unit: U/l)–One outlying sample pair has been excluded from the plot for reasons of better graphical display (Native: 1526; Mechanic: 1534). Bland-Altman plots for selected biomarkers. The difference in measurements is plotted against the average value of both associated measurements. The margins of accuracy as given by the Rili-BAEK are drawn as sloping lines. Agreement is high. Variations are random and no systemical bias through treatment can be detected. Inaccuracy is well within the limits of the Rili-BAEK and within tolerance of clinical interpretation. (PDF 38 kb)
