    When the entire CBC is suppressed due to either anemia, infection, or hemorrhage is called:

    • A.

      Erythroplasia

    • B.

      Thrombocytopenia

    • C.

      Pancytopenia

    • D.

      Leukopenia

    Correct Answer
    C. Pancytopenia
    Explanation
    Pancytopenia refers to a condition where all three major types of blood cells (red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets) are decreased in the bloodstream. This can occur as a result of various conditions such as anemia, infection, or hemorrhage. When the entire complete blood count (CBC) is suppressed, it is referred to as pancytopenia.

    The total RBC count for Women is?

    • A.

      4.4 -6

    • B.

      4.2-5

    • C.

      4.0-5.0

    • D.

      4.2-5.2

    Correct Answer
    C. 4.0-5.0
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4.0-5.0. This range represents the normal total RBC count for women. RBC count refers to the number of red blood cells present in a given volume of blood. This range is considered normal for women and indicates a healthy level of red blood cells in the bloodstream.

    Total RBC for men?

    • A.

      4.0-5.0

    • B.

      4.6-6.0

    • C.

      4.2-6.5

    • D.

      4.0-6.0

    Correct Answer
    B. 4.6-6.0
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4.6-6.0. This range represents the normal total red blood cell (RBC) count for men. RBCs are responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body, and maintaining a healthy count is important for overall health. The range of 4.6-6.0 is within the normal range for men, indicating that their RBC count is within a healthy range.

    Normal Hemoglobin (Hb) for women and men...Decreased Hb= anemia, hemorrhage, hemodilution (fluid volume is excessive)Increased Hb= dehydration, volume depletion

    • A.

      W 12.5-16, M 13-18

    • B.

      W 12-16.5, M13.5-18

    • C.

      W 12-16, M 13.5-18.5

    • D.

      W 12-16, M 13.5-18

    Correct Answer
    D. W 12-16, M 13.5-18
    Explanation
    The normal hemoglobin (Hb) levels for women range from 12 to 16, while for men it ranges from 13.5 to 18. This means that a woman with a hemoglobin level below 12 may have anemia, hemorrhage, or excessive fluid volume (hemodilution). On the other hand, a man with a hemoglobin level above 18 may be dehydrated or experiencing volume depletion. Therefore, the correct answer is W 12-16, M 13.5-18.

    Normal Hematocrit (Hct) for women and men?Decreased and increased levels same as with Hb 

    • A.

      W 38-47, M 40-54%

    • B.

      W 36-47, M 40-54%

    • C.

      W 36-47, M 38-54%

    • D.

      W 38-47, M40-56%

    Correct Answer
    A. W 38-47, M 40-54%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is W 38-47, M 40-54%. This means that the normal hematocrit levels for women are between 38-47%, while for men it is between 40-54%. Hematocrit measures the proportion of red blood cells in the blood, and these ranges are considered normal for both genders.

    Laboratory Studies: Red Cell Indices: Determination of the relative size of RBC. 82-98 fl

    • A.

      MCH

    • B.

      MCV

    • C.

      MCHC

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. MCV
    Explanation
    MCV stands for Mean Corpuscular Volume, which is a measurement of the average size of red blood cells (RBCs) in a blood sample. It is calculated by dividing the hematocrit (the percentage of RBCs in the blood) by the total number of RBCs. MCV is expressed in femtoliters (fl). A normal MCV range is typically between 82-98 fl. Therefore, the correct answer is MCV.

    Laboratory Studies: Red Cell Indices: Measurement of the average weight of Hb/RBC.  27-33 pg

    • A.

      MCH

    • B.

      MCV

    • C.

      MCHC

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. MCV
    Explanation
    MCV stands for Mean Corpuscular Volume, which is a measurement of the average size of red blood cells. The normal range for MCV is 27-33 pg. This means that the correct answer is MCV because it is the only option that matches the given measurement range for red cell indices. MCH (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin) and MCHC (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration) are not relevant to this question as they measure the average amount of hemoglobin in red blood cells, not their size.

      MCH

    • C.

      MCHC

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. MCHC
    Explanation
    MCHC stands for Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration, which is a measure of the average concentration of hemoglobin in a given volume of packed red blood cells. It is calculated by dividing the hemoglobin concentration by the hematocrit value. The normal range for MCHC is typically around 32-36%. Therefore, the correct answer is MCHC.

    WBCs (White Blood Cells):  –Measurement of total # of leukocytes   –Elevated count > Leukocytosis: •Infection •Inflammation •Tissue injury or death •Malignancies (leukemia, lymphoma) –Decreased count < Leukopenia •Bone marrow depression •Some types of leukemia

    • A.

      Normal 4,000 - 9,000

    • B.

      Normal 4,000 -11,000

    • C.

      Normal 5,000 - 9,000

    • D.

      Normal 5,000 - 11,000

    Correct Answer
    B. Normal 4,000 -11,000
    Explanation
    The normal range for white blood cell count is 4,000 - 11,000. This range includes both leukocytosis (elevated count) and leukopenia (decreased count). Leukocytosis can occur in response to various conditions such as infection, inflammation, tissue injury, or malignancies like leukemia and lymphoma. Leukopenia, on the other hand, can be caused by bone marrow depression or certain types of leukemia. Therefore, the answer "Normal 4,000 - 11,000" encompasses both possibilities and is the correct range for a normal white blood cell count.

      Bone Marrow Examination/Biopsy: –Examines patient’s RBCs, WBCs, & platelets in their various stages –The Preferred site is the posterior iliac crest •Anterior iliac crest & sternum are alternative sites –Conscious sedation for anxiety and pain control –Complications include hemorrhage & infection

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bone marrow examination/biopsy is a procedure that involves examining the patient's red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets in their various stages. The preferred site for this procedure is the posterior iliac crest, although the anterior iliac crest and sternum can be alternative sites. Conscious sedation is often used to control anxiety and pain during the procedure. Complications that can occur include hemorrhage and infection. Therefore, the statement "Bone marrow examination/biopsy examines patient's RBCs, WBCs, & platelets in their various stages, the preferred site is the posterior iliac crest, conscious sedation is used for anxiety and pain control, and complications include hemorrhage & infection" is true.

    Since RBCs transport O2-can lead to tissue hypoxia S/S of anemia: –Pallor- pale –Palpitations –Tachycardia –Dyspnea - labored breathing –Impaired thought process –Sensitivity to cold –Lethargy

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Anemia is a condition characterized by a decrease in the number of red blood cells (RBCs) or a decrease in the amount of hemoglobin in the blood, resulting in a reduced ability to transport oxygen to the tissues. The given symptoms, such as pallor, palpitations, tachycardia, dyspnea, impaired thought process, sensitivity to cold, and lethargy, are commonly associated with anemia. These symptoms occur because the body is not receiving enough oxygen, leading to tissue hypoxia. Therefore, the statement is true.

    There are 3 classifications of Anemia. What are they?

    • A.

      Inadequate production of Hb

    • B.

      Decreased RBC production

    • C.

      Increased Erythrocyte destruction

    • D.

      Blood loss

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Decreased RBC production
    C. Increased Erythrocyte destruction
    D. Blood loss
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Decreased RBC production, Increased Erythrocyte destruction, and Blood loss. These three classifications of anemia explain the different causes of the condition. Decreased RBC production refers to a decrease in the production of red blood cells, which can be caused by various factors such as nutritional deficiencies or bone marrow disorders. Increased Erythrocyte destruction refers to the accelerated destruction of red blood cells, which can occur due to autoimmune disorders or certain infections. Blood loss refers to the loss of blood, which can happen due to trauma, surgery, or gastrointestinal bleeding.
