. List the following values from Chart 1:

a. hematocrit for male with aplastic anemia

b. %WBC for male with aplastic anemia

c. Were the values listed above in the normal range? Why or why not?

a) hematocrit would be 19 (AK)

b) WBC would be .5% (AK)

C) These values are considered extremely low. This male, suffering from aplastic anemia, has a low red blood cell count, white blood cell count, and low platelet levels. (AK)
6. What is the hematocrit for a female with iron-deficiency anemia? Is this value in the normal range? Why or why not? The hematocrit for a female with iron deficiency anemia is 32. The value is not in normal range because normal range is 42%, and lower than normal hematocrit indicates anemia. (KEM)

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate

7. Describe the effect of sickle cell anemia on sedimentation rate Sickle cell anemia has no effect on sedimentation rate. (M.Smith)
8. why do you think that it has this effect?
9. Record the sedimentation rate for a menstruating female. How did this value compare to the healthy individual? Why? 15 mm/hr for the menstruating female and for the healthy female it was 5 mm/hr, for a difference of 10 mm/hr. the reason why this has happened is because when a female is menstruating she can sometimes of develop anemia which van show an increase in ESR. (AL) 10. What was the sedimentation rate for the iron-deficient individual? The iron-deficient person has an ERS of 30mm/hr. (MM) 11. What effect does iron deficiency have on ESR? ESR can be elevated in persons with iron deficieny. (A Darby) 12. What is the ESR for a person suffering a myocardial infarction? or angina pectoris? Person with myocardial infarction has an ERS of 40 mm/hr and a person with angina pectoris has an ERS of 5mm/hr. (K.P)
