Notes

Fluid samples from sterile sites, e.g. ascitic fluid, peritoneal fluid, synovial fluid, pericardial fluid, amniotic and pleural fluid can detect organisms that may indicate potentially life threatening infections. Gram stain will be performed which can indicate potential causative organisms. Contact Microbiology Medics to discuss treatment. Synovial fluid will also be investigated for crystal microscopy which may indicate gout/pseudo-gout. Drain fluids may grow mixed bacteria and results will be authorised to indicate clinical significance.
