Full BLOOD EXAMINATION REPORT
wcc = 7.2x 109/L
|Cell Type||Count (%)||Absolute Count
|Neutrophils||48||3.5 [7.2 x (48/100)]||2.0 – 7.5 x 109/L|
|Band Forms||0.0 – 0.5 x 109/L|
|Lymphocytes||36||1.5 – 4.0 x 109/L|
|Monocytes||11||0.2 – 0.8 x 109/L|
|Eosinophils||4||0.04 – 0.4 x 109/L|
|Basophils||1||0.0 – 0.1 x 109/L|
Students to calculate:
n/100 x WCC = Absolute count
i.e. 7.2 x 109/L * (48/100) = 3.46 x 109/L – report to one decimal place = 3.5 x 109/L.
Now calculate absolute count for Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils& Basophils.
Write a detailed report (around 1000 words) on what you think Edwin’s condition/s might be.
