- Provides information about the functioning of the immune system
- Shows the blood’s ability to transport oxygen
A hemogram with a leukogram, i.e. white blood cell count, is a complex analysis, which measures haemoglobin concentration in the blood and counts the blood cells: leukocytes, erythrocytes and thrombocytes. The analysis provides an overview of the current condition of the organism and helps specify the nature of the pathological process. A hemogram shows the blood’s ability to transport oxygen and fluid balance in the organism. The general leukocyte count and leukogram allow for evaluating the condition of the immune system and identifying any inflammatory processes.
A hemogram is a complex analysis consisting of the following:
Haemoglobin is an iron-containing metalloprotein found in erythrocytes. Its task is to carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues. Haemoglobin content increases physiologically in conditions where the oxygen level is low (e.g. in high-altitude mountains), and in cases of lung and heart diseases. Low haemoglobin levels occur with anaemias caused by different factors.
Haematocrit expresses the ratio of the volume of erythrocytes to the total volume of blood plasma, and it helps assess the fluid balance in the body. Low haemoglobin levels occur with anaemias.
Erythrocytes or red blood cells are blood cells containing haemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to tissues. The volume of erythrocytes decreases with anaemias and increases with dehydration, in a low-oxygen environment (e.g. in high-altitude mountains) or with various chronic diseases, including blood diseases.
The total volume of leukocytes or white blood cells and leukogram assessment give clues as to underlying disease pathogenesis: inflammation, allergy, immune suppression, infection, etc. The following leukocytes are counted: neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, monocytes and lymphocytes, and their numerical ranges carry very different clinical meanings.
Thrombocytes or platelets ensure normal blood clotting. Low levels may be caused by viral infections, the use of certain medicinal products, liver diseases, autoimmune diseases, alcoholism, blood formation disorders, etc. Increased values occur together with reactive changes in leukocytes in the case of bacterial infections, but also with blood formation disorders and after removing the spleen..
