About the Course
The full blood count (FBC) is a deceptively simple test to order and interpret. Because the test is relatively inexpensive and, in the past, part of "routine" admission or evaluation lab work, the results often are given only cursory appraisal. In most cases, the primary assessments of interest are whether the patient is anaemic, whether the total and differential white blood cell counts support the diagnosis of infection, and whether the platelet count is in a range that has an impact on haemostasis; however, astute practitioners may use nuances and clues from the FBC in many clinical situations to guide additional diagnostic evaluation.
Upscale your clinical acumen as we help guide you in the interpretation of this very common blood test in Pediatrics.
