• high
  • Compared to controls, mice with elevated hematocrit (RBC HIGH ) formed thrombi at a faster rate and had a shortened vessel occlusion time. (bloodjournal.org)
  • That is, if packed red cells are being supplied, the sample will contain a large amount of those cells and the hematocrit will be artificially very high. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • You could just of think something that makes you blush and as your face s getting red your blood is being raised and thus your hematocrit.Isn t this great? (roadbikereview.com)
  • Thus, tests on hematocrit levels are often carried out in the process of diagnosis of such conditions and may be conducted prior to surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • value
  • For example, a hematocrit value of 40% means that there are 40 milliliters of red blood cells in 100 milliliters of blood. (labtestsonline.org)
  • Of the two, the hematocrit value requires less specialized equipment and is the quicker option, according to "Clinical Methods: The History, Physical, and Laboratory Examinations. (reference.com)
  • determine
  • processing the optical spectrum with a mathematical model to determine the blood hematocrit, the model being constructed by relating optical properties of the plurality of red blood cell constituents to known blood hematocrit. (google.ca)
  • 15. A method of claim 1, wherein the processing includes comparing the optical spectrum with the mathematical model to determine blood hematocrit. (google.ca)
  • model
  • Hematocrit is then determined by comparing this spectrum to a mathematical model relating optical properties to blood Hematocrit. (google.ca)
  • 5. A method of claim 1, wherein the mathematical model comprises a non-linear mathematical equation relating hematocrit to the reflectivity of the plurality of red blood cell constituents. (google.ca)
  • cells
  • Red blood cells (RBCs) demonstrate procoagulant properties in vitro , and elevated hematocrit is associated with reduced bleeding and increased thrombosis risk in humans. (bloodjournal.org)
  • There are other names for the hematocrit, such as packed cell volume (PCV), volume of packed red cells (VPRC), or erythrocyte volume fraction (EVF). (wikipedia.org)
  • relationship
  • Through differential spectrophotometry, the differences in optical densities of a blood sample flowing through small-bore glass tubes at isosbestic wavelengths for deoxyhemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin and the product of the luminal diameter and hematocrit create a linear relationship that is used to measure hematocrit levels.
