Studies on the Relationships between Leukocytosis and Haematocrit

Agoro Eni-Yimini Solomon, Eledo Benjamin O, Damini Obolo


In this study we measured white blood cells count and haematoccrits of 300 subjects. The study was divided into two groups. Group A constituted the controls of 100 subjects with normal leukocyte counts. The group B  constituted the study group with a sample size of 200 subjects. The study group showed an elevated white blood cells count (leukocytosis). The average mean age of group A and B were   39±19 and 41±20 respectively.  The haematocrit was measured using the microhaematocrit method, whereas the white cell count was estimated using the manual Neubauer method.  The group A had a mean haematocrit and white cell count value of 35±8 and 7.1±1.6 respectively.  Whereas the group B had a mean haematocrit and white cell of 29±10 and 22.2±15.8 respectively. The results showed a significant decrease (p<0.05) in haematocrit of the study group (group B) as compared against the control group (group A) using student t test. This study had satisfied that a relationship do exist between haematocrit and leukocytosis. Hence, patients diagnosed of leucocytosis be placed on blood boosting therapy and diet to avoid anaemia.
