What does per mm3 mean?

What does per mm3 mean?

The /mm3 stands for cubic millimeter, which is the same as µL (microliter). Grams is shown by the letter g, and dL means deciliter.

How do you calculate CSF cell count?

By counting cells in the 5 shaded squares in both counting chambers (for a total of 10 squares), the standard formula is simplified so that cells/µL = number of cells counted x dilution factor.

What does M uL mean?

Red blood cells are measured in millions per cubic mil- limeter (mil/uL) of blood.

What is the normal value of MCHC?

MCHC indicates the amount of hemoglobin per unit volume. In contrast to MCH, MCHC correlates the hemoglobin content with the volume of the cell. It is expressed as g/dl of red blood cells or as a percentage value. The normal values for MCHC are 34 ± 2 g/dl.

How do you read CSF results?

Interpretation of CSF results from lumbar puncture (LP)

  1. Appearance: Clear.
  2. Opening pressure: 10-20 cmCSF.
  3. WBC count: 0-5 cells/µL. < 2 polymorphonucleocytes [PMN])
  4. Glucose level: >60% of serum glucose.
  5. Protein level: < 45 mg/dL.
  6. Consider additional tests: CSF culture, others depending on clinical findings.

What does x10E3 uL mean?

White Blood Cells (Normal: 4.0 – 11.0 x10E3/uL): This is the count of white blood cells in a person’s blood sample. A change in this number is often an identifier of an acute infection. Differential: Usually this is referred to a “CBC with diff.” This includes the measurements of different types of white blood cells.

What does 10×3 uL mean?

Since white blood cells kill bacteria, this count is a measure of the body’s response to infection. In general, the more the count is out of range the more acute the infection. Normal range: 4.00-10.5 x10E3/uL. RBC: RBC (Red Blood Count) measures the total number of red blood cells in a given volume of blood.

How do you calculate MCHC?

It can be calculated by dividing the hemoglobin (in g/L) by the RBC count. MCHC measures the average concentration of hemoglobin in the RBCs, and is calculated by dividing the hemoglobin by the hematocrit. Like hemoglobin, the MCHC is reported in g/dL. MCHC ( g / dL ) = hemoglobin ÷ hematocrit .

How do you calculate MCV MCH and MCHC?

MCV = Hct × 10/RBC (84-96 fL) •Mean corpuscular Hb (MCH) = Hb × 10/RBC (26-36 pg) •Mean corpuscular Hb concentration (MCHC) = Hb × 10/Hct (32-36%) A rapid method of determining whether cellular indices are normocytic and normochromic is to multiply the RBC and Hb by 3.
