Complete Blood Count (CBC) Test Results Interpretation w/ Differential Nursing NCLEX
Complete blood count (CBC) test result interpretation explained for nursing exams and NCLEX.
A complete blood count (CBC) is a blood test used to assess a patient’s general healthiness. It can help determine infection, anemia, certain types of blood cancers, etc. A CBC with differential will assess the 5 types of white blood cells (basophils, eosinophils, monocytes, lymphocytes, neutrophils).
The procedure for a CBC collection consists of removing blood from a patient’s vein via a needle. The blood is collected into a lab tube. The tube of blood is sent to the lab, and the laboratory will take the blood specimen and run a complete blood count test. The results will be sent to the nurse and doctor.
The complete blood count checks the white blood cell count (WBC), red blood cell count (RBC), hemoglobin/hematocrit, red blood cell indices, and platelets.
This video will discuss the normal ranges for WBCs, RBCs, hemoglobin/hematocrit, and platelets.
