what is SBS lab test?

  1. I have checked Lab Online - no result found.

    What is SBS? (with Hb, CBC, serum electrrolytes, urinalysis, FBS in am)

    This is a hypothetical client with diabetes and kidney malfunction.

    thanks

    Can you call your lab or ordering MD to find out?

    thanks

    there is no real doctor to call - this is a hypothetical client

    not sure what SBS means -
    (but tomorrow I coincidentally have to visit the local lab,
    so I'll ask them if they know what it is )

    I thought serun blood sugar too--but not a real test--they're getting FBS--fasting blood sugar. Sometimes doc will write FSBS for "fingerstick blood sugar--maybe the preparer of the hypothetical orders left off the F

    shaken baby syndrome
    short bowel syndrome
    sheer bond strength (dental test on dentin)
    sterile barrier system

    What kind of patient is your hypothetical one?

    the hypothetical patient is diabetic and has had a
    nephrectomy, so SBS is one of the orders - along
    with CBC, Hb, FBS, electrolytes

    could SBS be some kind of bone scan?

    Serial blood sugars?

    I think it would be stat blood sugar.

    Wait, is this one of those case study questions where it says which order to question? Then I say question that one because you are unfamiliar with the abbreviation and can't find another reference to it.

    I still can't find anything

    and I went into the lab to ask the staff
    and she said she didn't know what SBS is.
