Linegar AG, Knottenbelt JD, Wormald PJ.
Trauma Unit, Groote Schuur Hospital, South Africa.

The haemoglobin (Hb) levels of 100 blood samples submitted to the haematology laboratory of Groote Schuur Hospital were estimated by 3 clinical observers using the BMS portable haemoglobinometer. The average error was between 5% and 6% of the laboratory Hb value (0.6 g/dl). It is concluded that the BMS machine, besides being easy to use and giving a rapid result, is also sufficiently accurate for clinical practice.
