The student will know :
The importance of Hemoglobin.
The importance of Hematocrit .
How to calculate the red cell indices?
from the red cells and forms a solution in the plasma. The haemoglobin concentration (Hb) can be measured biochemically by light absorption at a specified wave length after a chemical reaction which converts haemoglobin to cyanmethaemoglobin .
(g/dl) or grams per litre (g/l).
A fall in the Hb is referred to as anaemia.
Mean cell volume (MCV).
Mean cell haemoglobin (MCH).
Mean cell haemoglobin concentration (MCHC).
The formulae which relate the various red cell indices to each other are as follows:
MCH is measured in picograms
MCHC is measured in g/dl
• degree of haemoglobinization
• distribution in the blood film.
- Rouleaux formation
- Red cell agglutination
