A patient case showing early detection of latent iron deficiency, that would not have been detected in a normal routine blood count or blood smear is described. A low RET-He (reticulocyte haemoglobin equivalent) value triggered a confirmatory test and lead to prompt treatment of the patient.
The intended objective of this newsletter is to highlight the importance of early detection of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The diagnosis of CKD often require the input of many disciplines along side that of the primary health care giver. It is common for patients with CKD to also have other chronic conditions, including but not restricted to hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
During HSCT patients suffer from many critical conditions such as thrombocytopenia or infections, as well as it is necessary to closely monitor the engraftment. This white paper explains how a Sysmex haematology analyser can answer your clinical demands.
This white paper intents to give an overview of the most common types of anaemia with a focus on how haematological parameters such as RET-He and other advanced RBC parameters could help to distinguish different causes of anaemia. The white paper also summarises current guidelines and publications on advanced RBC parameters.
A deeper insight about an activation of the immune response of patients can be acquired from newly available diagnostic parameters that support differentiation between inflammation and infection, different pathogenic causes of infection (viral versus bacterial) and different types of immune response: early innate, cellular or humoral immune response.
