ELECTROLYTE - A request for electrolytes will be interpreted as a request for sodium and potassium only. Assays of chloride and bicarbonate will not be performed unless medically justified and specifically requested by a physician. It is expected that the volume of chloride and bicarbonate assays will amount to no more than approximately 11% of the volume of assays for sodium and potassium.
