    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    . Bilirubin is a waste product that is primarily produced by the normal breakdown of heme. It is orange-yellow in color. This pigment is processed by the liver and is removed from the body.
    The two forms of bilirubin are conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin. When the heme is released from the hemoglobin, unconjugated bilirubin is formed. When sugars get attached to the unconjugated bilirubin in the liver, it becomes conjugated bilirubin.
    The chronic conditions that can cause an increase in the bilirubin levels in the blood include Gilbert syndrome, Rotor syndrome, Dubin-Johnson syndrome, and Crigler-Najjar syndrome.
    The medicines that can decrease the levels of total bilirubin include penicillin, caffeine, barbiturates, and high doses of salicylates.
