What do the sticks, segments, etc. in the blood test say?
Sticks, segments - so in everyday life they call one of the varieties of white blood cells. They relate to neutrophils. Neutrophils make up approximately 50-75% of all white blood cells. Depending on the degree of maturity and form in the blood test, stab (young) and segmented (more mature) neutrophils are distinguished.
In adult patients (older than 16 years), such values of the leukocyte formula:
These are the components of the leukocyte form, that is, the percentages of various leukocytes are shown. With some kind of disease, the cells either decrease or increase, change to one degree or another from others. So, according to these changes, we can assume the disease, its course, complication.
eosinophils 0,5 5,0%
basophils 0 1%
lymphocytes 19 37%
This is all the components by which you can determine the percentage of different white blood cells, the knowledge of which allows you to correctly diagnose and treat various diseases. The boundaries of the norm of these relations.
- young - 1-5%
- stab - 1-5
- segmented - 40-68
- eosinophils - 0.5-5
- basophils - 0-1
- lymphocytes - 19-37%.
