What does a cbc test with hematology determine?


Answer by  Vetendel (62)

a cbc determines red and white blood cell count, hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein), hematocrit and platelet count which if not under normal values would result to excess bleeding or clotting.

CBC testing provides information about your red cells, white cells and platelets. It provides an overview of your general health because many diseases/illnesses will alter the results of CBC tests. Abnormal results are usually followed up with more specific testing.

Hematology is a medical specialty that deals with the blood. "CBC" is "complete blood count," which by its very nature is a tool of hematology.
