E. by its viscosity. This in turn is determined by the Hb. In a normal blood film it is possible to find a part of the film which is ideal for microscopic examination where the red cells are touching but not overlapping. If the Hb is abnormally high (a condition referred to as polycythaemia) the blood has a high viscosity and the film of blood on the glass slide is thick. The red cells therefore appear packed together throughout the whole length of the film. The term ‘packed film’ is often used. Conversely, when a patient is anaemic the viscosity of the blood is low, the blood film is very thin and there are large spaces between the red cells.

In assessing what is ‘normal’ it is necessary to consider the gender, age and ethnic origin of the person being investigated. 2). 3). Neonates have a higher Hb, MCV, WBC, neutrophil count and lymphocyte count than adults.

Very large platelets are sometimes referred to as giant platelets. An increased variability in platelet size is referred to as platelet anisocytosis (Fig. 3). Platelet size is of diagnostic significance, particularly if considered in relation to the platelet count. Small or normal-size platelets in association with thrombocytopenia suggest that the cause is a failure of bone marrow production, whereas thrombocytopenia with large platelets is more likely to be caused by peripheral destruction or consumption of platelets with the bone marrow responding by increasing platelet production.
