The three-fold conversion of the haematocrit
to derive a haemoglobin value is not affected by which factors?
Blood samples collected from fish were used to determine the haematological parameters (total red blood cell count, haemoglobin concentration, haematocrit
, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular haemoglobin, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration, total white blood cell count and differential leukocyte counts).
For patients in both groups, the decision to transfuse homologous packed RBCs was based on the patient's clinical assessment like pulse, blood pressure, urine output and/or a haematocrit
(Hct) level (<20%).
As secondary outcomes, the difference in haemoglobin and haematocrit
taken 24 to 2 hours before the intervention and 48 hours after the intervention was registered.
Abnormal blood tests were as follows: Haematocrit
37%; haemoglobin 11.9 g/dL; bicarbonate 21 mEq/L; urea 78 mg/dL (normal value 20-50 mg/dL); serum creatinine 2 mg /dL; uric acid 6.4 mg/dL; creatinine clearance 42 ml/min; proteinuria 0.2 g/day; urinary sodium excretion 188 mEq/day; urine pH: 6, urinary density 1015.
Of the factors contributing to whole blood viscosity, haematocrit
, red cell aggregability, red cell rigidity, and plasma viscosity, haematocrit
is thought to be the most important, being responsible for at least 70% of the contribution .
Okeniyi recommended 'parental counselling, venous haematocrit
, urgent saline partial exchange, propranolol, for intra-cardiac repair as soon as possible.'
However, there were no significant differences between drip loss groups in RBC, hemoglobin, haematocrit
, MCV, MCH, MCHC, platelets, neutrophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes and neutrophil:lymphocyte ratio.
The blood samples collected in bottles containing EDTA were gently mixed and drawn up in a micro haematocrit
capillary tube to 3/4 of its length.
Body weight, blood haematocrit
level, total sodium excretion and serum sodium and potassium concentrations were measured.
Laboratory: normal haemoglobin, haematocrit
, and platelets; leukocytes 12.940/[mm.sup.3], eosinophils 776/[mm.sup.3]; normal proteins, transaminases, calcium, thyroid-stimulating hormone, free thyroxine 4, lipidogram, and amylase; lipase 111 IU/L; glycated haemoglobin 11.1%, creatinine 2.1 mg/dL, urea 129.3 mg/dL, and C-reactive protein (CRP) 4.7 mg/L.
