ED and subsequent inpatient records were also reviewed for the following: vital signs, symptoms, physical findings, suspected source of infection in the ED, white blood cell count (WBC) or absolute neutrophil count
(ANC), chest radiograph results, urinalysis results, hospital course, use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), blood, urine, or other culture results, and outcome.
Long term administration in children or adults with severe congenital, cyclic, or idiopathic neutropenia with an absolute neutrophil count
Haemoglobin was 10 gm/dl, neutrophils 8%, absolute neutrophil count
Both the total lymphocyte count and the absolute neutrophil count
followed a similar trend of increasing noticeably in the second week.
Physicians should not rule out infection simply because the absolute neutrophil count
and automated differential [are] within normal limits.
Since 1995, people on clozapine in the United Kingdom have their WBC and absolute neutrophil count
checked weekly for 18 weeks, biweekly until 52 weeks, then monthly after that time.
Table 3 EVALUATION OF INNATE IMMUNITY Neutrophil function * Absolute neutrophil count
(multiple times) * Neutrophil morphology * Evaluation of [beta]-integrins (CD11, CD18) * Evaluation of neutrophil oxidative burst Complement testing * Total hemolytic complement activity (CH50) * Specific component testing - Immunoassay for specific components - Functional testing for specific components Natural killer (NK) cell testing * NK cell enumeration (flow cytometry) * In vitro functional cytotoxicity assay To attack, cytotoxic T cells need to recognize a specific antigen, whereas natural killer or NK cells rely on an alternative recognition system.
defined as an absolute neutrophil count
below 100/[micro]L of up to 4 weeks' duration, was anticipated.
Blood smear examination showed marked RBC agglutination, few spherocytes, neutropenia with an absolute neutrophil count
(ANC) of 50/[micro]L, and Wuchereria bancrofti microfilariae (Figure 1a).
Ranging from absolute neutrophil count
to water deficit, there's something here for everyone.
