Complete blood count (CBC)

A routine analysis performed on a sample of blood taken from the patient's vein with a needle and vacuum tube. The measurements taken in a CBC include a white blood cell count, a red blood cell count, the red cell distribution width, the hematocrit (ratio of the volume of the red blood cells to the blood volume), and the amount of hemoglobin (the blood protein that carries oxygen). CBCs are a routine blood test used for many medical reasons, not only for AIDS patients. They can help the doctor determine if a patient is in advanced stages of the disease.

NLR, which is a complete blood cell count parameter, can be used for evaluating the success of single-dose methotrexate administration in treating ectopic pregnancy.
How strange it was to look at my own complete blood cell count report and see a white blood cell count of 100/[micro]L and a platelet count of 10,000/[micro]L As a specialist in hematology, I had looked at many reports similar to mine with detached concern.
On day 12, reevaluation of the complete blood cell count (CBC) indicated a significant increase in the leukocyte count to 152 000 cells/[micro]L, with a predominant heterophilia (133 700 cells/[micro]L), eosinophilia (1520 cells/[micro]L), lymphocytosis (9120 cells/[micro]L), and monocytosis (7600 cells/[micro]L).
0.0-1.1 * CBC indicates complete blood cell count; WBC, white blood cell count; RBC, red blood cell count; MCV, mean corpuscular volume; MCH, mean corpuscular hemoglobin; MCHC, mean corpuscular he- moglobin concentration; RDW, red blood cell distribution width; and MPV, mean platelet volume.
These shortcomings in birds are primarily because erythrocytes and thrombocytes are nucleated, which precludes the use of automated analyzers programmed to perform mammal complete blood cell counts. In addition, there is no standard avian antibody panel, which would allow cell differentiation by immunophenotyping across all commonly seen bird species.
Complete blood cell count showed the following values: hemoglobin, 151 g/L; platelets, 300 X [10.sup.9]/L; and absolute neutrophil count, 11.2 X [10.sup.9]/L.
Results of a complete blood cell count (CBC) revealed a leukocytosis (33.6 x [10.sup.3] cells/[mu]L [reference interval, 2.3-19.0 x [10.sup.3] cells/[mu]L]), heterophilia (19.5 x [10.sup.3] cells/[mu]L [reference interval, 0-4.7 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L]), monocytosis (3.7 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L [reference interval, 0-1.5 X [10.sup.3]/[micro]L]), and eosinophilia (2.0 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L [reference interval, 0-0.8 x [10.sup.3] cells/[mu]L]).
No other abnormalities were observed upon external examination, and a blood sample was collected from the right jugular vein for complete blood cell count (CBC) and plasma biochemical analysis (Figs 2 and 3).
A complete blood cell count revealed the following results: white blood cell count, 7.9 x [10.sup.9]/L; red blood cell count, 4.7 x [10.sup.12]/L; hemoglobin, 141 g/L; and hematocrit, 0.43.
Abstract: An adult, male double yellow-headed Amazon parrot (Amazona ochrocephala oratrix) was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia based on results of a complete blood cell count and cytologic examination of a bone marrow aspirate.
A complete blood cell count showed the following values: hemoglobin, 120 g/L; platelets, 70 x [10.sup.9]/L; and WBC, 50 x [10.sup.9]/L.
