The hypoglycaemia guidance fails to mention plasma ammonia as part of the hypoglycaemia screen. Comment re 'Testing Blood Glucose' states 'ensure equipment is calibrated regularly', but fails to mention the importance of daily quality control (which identifies calibration errors). I suggest guidelines relating to/including laboratory/pathology processes may benefit from review by appropriate lab staff.

Thank you for your comment, Sarah. This guideline has now had a major re-vamp following new guidance and the new version (which will be published early in the New Year) does mention plasma in the investigations and no longer contains the information regarding calibrating, but I will forward the comment to the author for their review.
