Aerobic and Anaerobic Blood Culture Bottles
When drawing blood cultures, which bottle is it recommended that you transfer into first (aerobic 1st or anaerobic 1st)?
I just looked at the blood culture article from Jan. 2011 in the J of Inf. Nursing and there are opposite statements in the article vs. a table.
