Normal ranges for packed cell volume and hemoglobin concentration in adults: relevance to 'apparent polycythemia'.

Abstract

Published data from Europe and North America indicate that for non-iron-deficient adult Caucasian males, the normal mean packed cell volume (PCV) is 0.46 and the 2.5-97.5 percentile interval is 04.0-0.53. Corresponding values for adult Caucasian females are: mean PCV 0.42; 2.5-97.5 percentile interval 0.36-0.48. It is not usually appropriate to undertake… (More)
