Hemogram is a comprehensive blood test that provides vital information about the components of blood including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It includes a Complete Blood Count (CBC) and Peripheral Smear (PS) along with an automated reticulocyte count. This test is often used as a broad screening panel to evaluate an individual's general health status, as well as to detect a variety of disorders, such as anemia, infection, and many other diseases.

  • Test Name Hemogram (CBC + PS with Automated Reticulocyte Count)
  • Sample Type Blood
  • Preparations Required No special preparation is needed for this test. Fasting is not required, and no restrictions are placed on water consumption.
  • Report Time 4 hours

A CBC provides quantitative information about the blood cells including Hemoglobin (Hb), Hematocrit (Hct), Red Blood Cell Count (RBC), White Blood Cell Count (WBC), Platelet Count, and RBC indices (MCV, MCH, MCHC). Peripheral Smear involves preparing a blood film on a slide and then examining it under a microscope to assess the physical characteristics of individual blood cells. Automated reticulocyte count gives an estimate of the bone marrow's production of new red blood cells.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Hemogram is important as it provides a snapshot of an individual's overall health and is useful in diagnosing and monitoring various conditions such as anemia, infections, clotting disorders, and bone marrow abnormalities.

Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells. Their count gives an estimate of the rate at which the bone marrow is producing red blood cells. This is particularly important in evaluating anemias and response to treatment.

Peripheral smear shows the size, shape, and characteristics of blood cells. It helps in diagnosing specific types of anemia, infections, and other blood disorders.

Anyone experiencing symptoms like fatigue, weakness, unexplained bruising, or frequent infections should consider getting a Hemogram. It is also commonly done as part of routine health check-ups.

A blood sample is usually taken from a vein in the arm using a needle. This is a simple procedure and usually causes minimal discomfort.

A high WBC count may indicate an infection, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, or leukemia.

Yes, certain medications like antibiotics, steroids, and chemotherapy can affect the results of a Hemogram. It’s important to inform the doctor of any medications being taken.

Low Hemoglobin levels usually indicate anemia, which can be caused by various factors such as iron deficiency, chronic disease, or bone marrow problems.

Platelets are blood cells that help in the clotting process to prevent excessive bleeding. Abnormal platelet counts can lead to bleeding disorders or thrombotic events.

The pain associated with a Hemogram is minimal and is usually just a small prick from the needle used to draw blood.

The frequency for getting a Hemogram depends on individual health conditions. Some may need it more frequently, especially if monitoring a chronic condition. For healthy individuals, it might be part of a yearly health check-up.

Age, sex, diet, level of hydration, medications, and underlying health conditions can all affect levels of components in the Hemogram.

MCV (Mean Corpuscular Volume) measures the average size of your red cells, MCH (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin) measures the average amount of hemoglobin in the red blood cells and MCHC (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration) measures the average concentration of hemoglobin in the cells.

If there are abnormal results in the Hemogram, consulting a primary care physician is advised. Depending on the results, you might be referred to a hematologist or other specialists.

The risks associated with a Hemogram are minimal but may include slight pain or bruising at the needle site, fainting or feeling lightheaded, or hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin).

Hemogram is a powerful tool in the evaluation of an individual’s health. Understanding the components of blood and how they function can help in making informed health decisions. Whether it is for routine screening, diagnosis of a health condition, or monitoring of ongoing treatment, Hemogram is an indispensable part of modern medicine. It is always recommended to consult a doctor for the interpretation of Hemogram results and appropriate medical advice.
