RDW were normal in 29 (43.28%) cases, increased in 17(25.37%) cases and rest had reduced RDW.
Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a quantitative measurement of erythrocyte size variability.
For each patient, white blood cell (WBC), neutrophil (N), and lymphocyte (L) counts and RDW values were evaluated and postoperative pathology reports were reviewed.
In this study, we investigated the geriatric patients admitted to our clinic with the diagnosis of UTI and evaluated the effects of white blood cell (WBC), neutrophil count, platelet, MPV, RDW, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, creatine, albumin, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio parameters on estimating the need for bacteremia and intensive care (IC) for the patients with pyelonephritis.
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the availability of RDW and monocytes as markers to predict mortality and other variable patient characteristics in the surgical ICU and to make these assessments using the APACHE II scoring system that is commonly used in the ICUs.
The incidence of MI was highest among the 1,920 patients (5%) with elevated RDW and MPV (odds ratio, 3.4; 95% confidence interval, 2.7-4.2; P less than .001), followed by the 7,060 (18%) patients with high RDW and normal MPV (OR, 2.4; 95% CI, 2.1-2.8; Pless than .001), as compared with normal/low MPV and RDW patients.
When different red cell sizes are observed (anisocytosis) in the peripheral blood smear, RDW values are elevated and this elevation is said to be associated with recurrent pregnancy loss (4, 5).
The present study was undertaken to compare and contrast CRP and RDW responses in individuals with unreported sleep disturbances to those diagnosed with sleep disorders and those reporting no sleep problems.
In fact, RDW has been shown to be strongly associated with CRP and ESR in a large cohort of unselected outpatients [8].
The optimal cutoff value of RDW ([less than or equal to] 13.4% and >13.4%) was defined using the median value and referred to data from previous studies [23, 24].
There are few studies that have assessed the relationship between RDW and C-IMT in general as well as high-risk populations.
The only exception was the pretreatment RDW value, which was counted from any time in the VAMC records confirmed to be prior to initiation of treatment of spondyloarthritis.
