Plasma volume and red cell volume were measured in 24 diabetic outpatients. From the blood volume measurements, the whole body hematocrit was derived, and the ratio between whole body hematocrit:venous hematocrit (WBH:VH ratio) was considered to represent an index of the difference in red cell distribution between small and large blood vessels. The WBH:VH… CONTINUE READING
