Well only been a Nurse for 5 Months! Question is, I was drawing blood from a Midline a few weeks ago and when I looked in the syringe I had to waste and the syringe with my sample in it (both 10cc syringes) I noticed some off white substance floating in both syringes! Now I flushed the midline with 10 cc NS per our protocol and at first thought I had screwed up! I asked some of the more experienced nurses and was informed that it was actually fat from the person! Has anyone had this happen to them and is it possible to have that much fat floating around in your blood if it is fat? I mean it was close to 1 cc combine in this off white material floating in the syringes!
