distribution width (RDW) is provided in CBCs by the automated analyzers and can be utilized in the association with a derived value RDWI to distinguish IDA and ssTT.
These premature red cells
can be cultured indefinitely, allowing larger-scale production, before being differentiated into mature red blood cells.
Average number of packed red cell
units transfused to a patient suffering from acute blood loss was 4.
with uniform elliptical shape come under the category of hereditary elliptocytosis (HE) however homozygous or compound heterozygous for HE present with distorted morphology termed as hereditary pyeropoikilocytosis (HPP)2.
Conclusion: The red cell
distribution width index was the most consistent index for differentiating between beta thalassemia trait and iron deficiency anaemia.
The life span of a normal red cell
ranges about 100-120 days [17,18].
The association of red cell
transfusions with post-operative infections has been shown in randomized clinical trials to be partially mitigated by leukoreduction.
The perturbation in red cell
size and shape is reflected in an increased red cell
The red cell
membrane elasticity modulus characterizes its average stiffness, within our study over the entire adaptation period it was significantly below the value in the control group by 57-63%.
5 There is a high probability that the donor will have red cell
antigens not present in the recipient and it will result in alloimmunization.
In patients undergoing cardiac surgery, preoperative anaemia increases the likelihood of red cell
In case if someone is suffering from kidney disease, red cell
formation decreases leading to anaemia.
Researchers studied variation in red cell
distribution width, finding that social factors may be influencing the biomarker.
Until recently, ADVIA instruments (Siemens, Tarrytown, USA) were the only analysers to use flow cytometry to quantify red cell
These molecules seem to be involved in the negative [17-19] and positive (20-21) regulation, respectively, of red cell
