Complete Blood Count

A Complete Blood Count is a test used to evaluate and detect a broad range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia. The complete blood count measures several things including:

  • Red blood cells, which carry oxygen
  • White blood cells, which fight infection
  • Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells
  • Hematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma, in your blood
  • Platelets, which help with blood clotting
