Hematocrit

«The hematocrit (/hɪˈmætəkrɪt/) (Ht or HCT), also known by several other name, is the volume percentage (vol%) of red blood cell in blood. It is normally 47% ±5% for men and 42% ±5% for women.[1] It is considered an integral part of a person's complete blood count results, along with hemoglobin concentration, white blood cell count, and platelet count. Because the purpose of red blood cell is to transfer oxygen from the lung to body tissues, a blood sample's hematocrit—the red blood cell volume percentage—can become a point of reference of its capability of delivering oxygen. The measure of a subject's hematocrit levels can indicate possible disease. An abnormally low hematocrit may suggest anemia, a decrease in the total amount of red blood cell, while an abnormally high hematocrit is called polycythemia.[2] Both are potentially life-threatening disorders.» (wikipedia)
