Mean values of systolic and diastolic blood pressure were calculated for each quintile of haematocrit
for men and women separately and displayed graphically.
[54.] Jawad LA, Al-Mukhtar MA, Ahmed HK (2004) The relationship between haematocrit
and some biological parameters of the Indian shad, Tenualosa ilisha (Family Clupeidae).
It is due to the presence of more haematocrit
and globules of thrombus in diseased blood due to presence of stenoses in the opposite branch of carotid artery.
Similar trend in the results was observed for haematocrit
, MCH and WBC of the rats.
A venous blood sample was then taken for determination of haemoglobin concentration and haematocrit
value using Colter (J.T.).
After urine collection 1.5 ml blood sample was col-lected by cardiac puncture, using disposable syringe with 27 gauge needle,16 out of which 0.5 ml was put in citrated vacutainers and used for determination of haematocrit
by hematology analyzer (NIHON - KOH-DEN) and one ml blood was put in serum vacutainers and placed at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Data analysis: The mean white cell count, mean platelet count, mean haematocrit
and mean ALT level were calculated for both the acute dengue-positive and acute dengue-negative groups.
The preoperative values were not statistically different between the two groups (p=0.707) and the postoperative haematocrit
values also did not differ (p=0.283).
Regarding the haematological parameters evaluated, it was observed that the haematocrit
(P = 0.0001) and the erythrocyte count (P = 0.0040) were influenced by the water salinity level with higher values in 0 and 7 g [L.sup.-1]; however, the leukocyte count did not change (P = 0.5376) regardless of the water salinity level (Table 4).
For the analysis of haematocrit
levels, the blood sample was placed in the Ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) tubes.
This sheep was monitored every day for haematocrit
, temperature and parasitemia values.
Heamatobiochemistry revealed low haemoglobin (4.7-6.2 gm/dl), haematocrit
(1521%), total platelet count (92 000-1,64, 000 lakhs/ cmm) and increased ALT (87.5-98.1 U/L) and AST (148.4-178.2 U/L) values (Table 1).
