The automated blood cyanide method described in this report was developed to meet laboratory requirements for studies of cyanide poisoning and its therapy. The procedure is specific and sufficiently sensitive to detect 0.5 micrograms of cyanide ion per milliliter of blood. Heparinized whole blood samples collected by syringe or Vacutainer can be assayed at a rate of 20 per hour. Venous or arterial blood can be monitored continuously by means of a double lumen catheter.
