Red blood cell count calculator
Red blood cell count, or RBC is a measure of the total number of red blood cells (the cells that carry oxygen through your body) in your blood. A low RBC count can be a sign of MM and may be used to help diagnose the disease. The red blood cell (RBC) indices calculator uses the hemoglobin content in g/dL, the hematocrit value in % and the RBC count in 10 12 /L to determine the MCV, MCH and MCHC.. RBC indices are part of the complete blood count but can also be estimated through formulas (what this tool does) and offer information about the characteristics of erythrocytes (size, shape and composition). Red blood cell (RBC) indices are calculated RBC parameters reported on an automated blood count.
