Normal lymphocyte count is:  24-44%
 
24-44%
11
Normal monocyte count is: 
 
3-6%
12
Increased WBC count may be suggestive of: 
 
Bacterial/viral infection, leukemia.
13
Reduced RBC values (anemia) may be suggestive of: 
 
Hemorrhage, bacterial infections, low B-12, kidney disease (erythropoietin, which signals...
14
Decreased HBG may be suggestive of: 
 
Anemia due to nutritional deficiencies, blood loss, destruction of blood cells internally,...
15
Decreased HCT may be suggestive of: 
 
Anemia due to nutritional deficiencies, blood loss.
16
Reduced platelet count may be suggestive of: 
 
Thrombocytopenia, acute blood loss, drug effects (such as heparin), infections w/sepsis,...
17
RBC function is to:
 
Transport oxygen bound to HBG.  Also transports small amounts of carbon dioxide
18
Neutrophil function:
 
They are active phagocytes.  They increase rapidly in number during short-term or acute...
19
Eosinophil function:
 
Increase during allergies, kill parasitic worms.
20
Basophil function:
 
Responds to inflammation.  Granules contain histamine (vasodilator), which is discharged...
21
Granulocytes include: 
 
The "Phils":  neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils
22
Agranulocytes include:
 
Lymphocytes and monocytes
23
Lymphocyte function:
 
Important in the "immune response."  B lymphocytes produce antibodies.  T lymphocytes...
24
Monocyte function: 
 
Phagocytes that become macrophages in the tissues.  They are the "clean-up team." ...
25
Monocyte increase may indicate:
 
Long-term infection
26
Neutrophil increase may indicate:
 
New-onset (acute) infection.
27
Platelet function:
 
Clot blood.  Are not "cells", but fragments of megakaryocytes.
28
Blood cell formation: 
 
Hemocytoblasts (stem cells) become secondary stem cells (either lymphoid stem cells or myeloid...
29
RBC formation: 
 
Includes the kidney (releases erythropoietin), which stimulates red bone marrow in the bones...
30
Normal and therapeutic PT / INR values:
 
Normal INR should be appx. 1.0.  Therapeutic level (prevent DVT) is between 2-3.  This...
31
Normal PTT values: 
 
Normal is between 30-45 seconds.  This test is generally done while on heparin therapy...
32
Trick to remembering which test goes with which drug:  PT / PTT
 
Count the letters in the word WARFARIN (8-letters), then add the letters from the corresponding...
33
PT / INR test is used during:      PTT test is used during: 
 
PT/INR:  Warfarin (Coumadin) therapy   PTT:  Heparin (Lovenox) therapy
