Didn't want this to get lost in my other thread so thought I'd start a new one.
I find it very difficult to do a sputum sample and need one for tomorrow to follow up ABs for a pseudomonas infection. Didn't think I'd manage to do it but whilst bending down doing a little job in the kitchen the opportunity arose (OK - you probably didn't need to know that LOL!).
Anyway, I did manage to collect a small sample in the pot but there's a fair bit of saliva in with it too. Does this matter? I've not got a spare pot to try again.
You can probably tell I've done very very few samples!
