Been there done that and have the tell tale scar in left arm.

Started many, many, years ago as an 18 year old when we were asked if we would like help out the Red Cross.

Dumb, dumb, never volunteer, next thing we knew, we were all blood donors.

Blood pressure readings are invariably taken on the left arm.
Sorry Malcolm but that is twaddle. They use whichever is easiest, usually the side the machine is on. This year alone I've had it taken on my right arm on two separate occasions.

I'm sure all this is old wives tales stemming from the belief that the heart is on the left.

I've just done my 75th donation. Left arm didn't want to co-operate too well, so the last 74 have been from the right. The resulting scar tissue makes it blood* painful now to push the needle in! :o

Good morning Ned....but never let it be said I would stray too far off thread  :P

Yes the original post included an explanation of the performance features of the Multimeter in question

As we know, Iron [Fe] is an excellent conductor of electricity...it just so happens that the blood in our veins contains Iron [Fe] :kiss:

I have been assisting an Associate Professor in Wollongong in understanding and determining how the various Iron [Fe] levels in my blood can be accurately  measured using my specially modified $25.00 home multimeter to measure the Iron [Fe] in my blood

As we can see, three Ferritin [Fe] levels [668H, 544H & 406H] levels  in my blood were marked with an H which means HIGH, this is where the Multimeter setting 'hFE' is used to detect such abnormalities

This process is in an early stage of development and we are also using my specially modified $25.00 Stanley metal detector to establish just where the Iron [Fe] loaded blood veins are located in my left arm

Associate Professor Raj....thinks we could be on a real $ spinner here....so watch this space  :}

So from here, I rest my case in the usefulness of home multimeters here on MBM.......Derek

They tell me 'Old Sparkey' the first Electric chair in America used only 24 volts, but at about 1000 amps, so don't try this at home!!! :(( >:-o :police:

Hi Guy's and Gal's,

What Derek is not telling us is that these High Fe levels are being discovered after several cans of (F)osters (e)xtra Which turns him into a High Gain Semi-Conscious-Conductor.  {-)
It could lead to Thermal Runaway and damage to his multi-meter if left unchecked. <:(
Have a great Christmas Derek and everyone else.
Sandy. :}

Alex,

You have got it in one. O0 O0
Fosters and others, were canned in tin containers but are now, canned in aluminium containers, for the reasons you mention.
However, as mentioned it has not prevented participants still exhibiting high levels of Fe. <:( <:( <:(

 %% %% {-) {-)

Oh yes, thankfully Queenslanders are immune and unaffected, as they drink XXXX not Fosters O0 O0 :} :}

Hullo Sandy.....hope all is well in Lochgilphead and the chooks are laying %)

Associate Professor Raja Ramakrishna has suggested I trial an alternate fluid for a few days & then get my $25.00 modified multimeter and my $25.00 Stanley metal detector and use the hFE setting & check my Fe levels

Charming name :o, but I improve the character by consuming the fluid [medical purposes only] in a Stewart crystal glass  :kiss:

Best wishes to you & hope Santa is kind........... Derek

PS......I don't recommend mixing this medication when using my solar powered digital ABBACUS [with flat batteries and in a dark room :embarrassed:]
