Since the target hematocrit had risen quickly and exceeded the target range of 33% to 36%, erythropoietin therapy was held.
For automated hematologic analyzers (LH 750), the RBC and MCV are directly measured by the instrument depending on the number of pulses for RBC and the amplitude of each pulse for MCV using electronic impedance; then the hematocrit is calculated by using following equation:
Cerebral venous sinus density on non-contrast CT correlates with hematocrit.
Intramuscular testosterone is the only form that significantly increases hematocrit above normal levels.
In addition, he said, men who live at high altitudes develop naturally high hematocrits as a response to decreased oxygen in the atmosphere.
In addition, CMS imposed modest payment penalties if the mean hematocrit level of a center's dialysis patients exceeded 36 percent or was lower than 30 percent (Swaminathan et al.

The FAMACHA[c] card contains five classifications referent to the color of the ocular conjunctiva, from bright red (probably normal) to pale white (probably anemic), each one associated with a specific range for the hematocrit value, with a correlation of 0.
The patients' data including age, sex, Body Surface Area, hematocrit level, direct and indirect bilirubin levels, hepatic enzymes (aspartate aminotransferase [AST], ALT, and alkaline phosphatase [ALP]), serum creatinine, ejection fraction, history of cardiovascular and cerebral diseases, and history of diabetes mellitus were recorded in a specific form.
The effect of hematocrit on blood viscosity is clear--the higher the percentage of blood that is made up of red blood cells, the thicker blood is going to be.
