band neutrophil

The formal term (recommended by the Histology Subcommittee of the International Anatomical Nomenclature Committee) for the immature or band form of neutrophil is granulocytus neutrophilicus juvenilis; the descriptive term band neutrophil is popular with many experts.

The finding of increase in neutrophils count, accompanied by rise in immature band cells in buffaloes impending PRD is supported by Mateus et al.
Routinely completed laboratory findings which may signify the need for heightened nursing surveillance include hyperglycemia, increased liver function tests, leukocytosis, leukopenia, normal WBC with more than 10% band cells, coagulation abnormalities (e.g., thrombocytopenia and increased D-dimer), and hyperbilirubinemia.
Complete blood count revealed a white cell count of 8.3 X 10[.sup.9]/L (8.3 X 10[.sup.9] /[micro]l) with .89 segmented neutrophils and.01 band cells. Results of chemical analysis of the blood were within normal limits.
Schilling also developed a reporting format in which increases in the more immature band cells were noted on the report sheet to the left of the segmented neutrophils.
