 Complete Blood Count (CBC)-
This test measures:
WBC-White blood cells are the body’s primary defense against disease. White blood cells help fight infection.
RBC – Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen and carbon dioxide to all cells. Iron deficiency will lower RBC.
Homoglobin- A chemical compound inside red cells that transports oxygen through the blood stream to all cells of the body. Oxygen is needed for healthy organs. Hemoglobin gives the red color to blood.
Hematocrit- Hematocrit measures the amount of space red blood cells take up in the blood. It is reported as percentage.
MCV-Corpuscular volumes measure red blood cell volume.
MCH- corpuscular hemoglobin is one way to measure the average hemoglobin concentration within red blood cells, which varies from normal with different diseases.
MCHC- Measures corpuscular hemoglobin concentration.
RDW-Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a calculation of the variation in the size of your RDC’s. In some anemias, such as pernicious anemia, the amount of variation (anisocytosis) in RBC size (along with variation shaped-poikilocytosis) causes an increase in the RDW. (*this result does not appear in some lab results)
Platelets-Blood cell particles involved with the forming of blood clots.
Neutrophils-The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body’s defense against infection. Also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
Lymphs-The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, monocytes and neutrophils deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body’s defense against infection. Also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
Monocytes- The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes and neutrophils deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body’s defense against infection. Also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
