I want to ask for the assignment, if someone’s HB and HT is higher than normal results, the number of erythrocytes is also high and when checking mcv and mch decreases while the mchc increases, what does the conclusion indicate? thank you

Hi Sheyla,


Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.


Before I answer your question, I will try to explain in advance what these meanings and meanings are.


Erythrocytes or red blood cells function to carry oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. While Hb or Hemoglobin is a proten in red blood cells that functions to carry oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. Meanwhile, HT or hematocrit measures the percentage of red blood cells throughout the body's blood volume. Both of these can increase in people who actually live in highland areas such as mountains. Apart from being a normal increase in Erythrocytes, Hb and Ht can also be caused by disorders of the body, such as: disorders of the spinal cord, lung disease, cancer, smoking and the use of drugs.


Erythrocyte MCV or average volume serves to measure the average size of red blood cells, if MCV is low it indicates that the size of red blood cells is very small and is usually experienced by people who have iron deficiency anemia or who have chronic diseases such as lung disease or COPD. MCH or average erythrocyte hemoglobin which functions to measure the sensitivity of hemoglobin without looking at blood volume. MCH and MCV think that if MCV increases, MCH will increase, if MCV is low, eating MCH will be low.


Which can be concluded, that an increase in erythrocytes, hemoglobin, and HT is a sign that the condition requires a lot of oxygen. So that the body produces Erythrocytes, Hb, and Ht in the hope that it can bind a lot of Oxygen. However, because there is a disruption in the body causing erythrocytes, Hb, and Ht can not bind oxygen because oxygen does not enter the body. But the body still produces Erythrocytes, Hb and Ht. added to the size of a low erythrocyte MCV indicates that lack of nutrition and oxygen that allows the condition of the person is experiencing chronic lung disorders or lung disorders that have long.
