  • Pulse,Ox2nd
  • Blood Pressure first since she is feeling light headed.
  • Temp 3rd
  • We have one more thing to go ahead and do before you see the Dr. and that is to get a blood sample.
  • Be drawing for lipid panel, basic metabolic panel, and a complete blood count.
  • Sounds good.

Yes the coffee can mess up the blood tests as the caffeine can interfere.She will have to come back another day to get labs drawn.
  • Okay, unfortunately we will have to reschedule you and have you complete the fasting again since the coffee can mess up the results. I will give you a hand out and answer any questions I can for you.

  • I did have a cup of black coffee this morning.

  • It was nice meeting you too. Thank you.
