Full blood cell count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were within normal limits.
The deformation of the human erythrocyte or red blood cell has been the topic of detailed investigation for many decades.
Sickle cell erythrocytes have decreased oxygen affinity and increased unsaturated hemoglobin in the arterial blood.
Rapidly expanding erythrocytic volume increases blood viscosity and, especially in endurance races, might predispose the athlete to blood clots or other complications.
A bone marrow aspirate and biopsy were performed and revealed 51% erythrocytic precursors.
As the immature cells accumulate in the bone marrow, they replace the normal myelocytic cells, megakaryocytes, and erythrocytic cells.
The blood was pooled and then spun down to separate the erythrocytes from plasma.
Increased production of erythrocytes leads to an increase in oxygen supply.
There are three chapters devoted to the structure and function of erythrocytes and white blood cells.
The final stage of erythrocyte production is when reticulocytes develop into erythrocytes .
