HemaApp to detect Anemia. Noninvasive Blood Screening of Hemoglobin using Smartphone Cameras
A team of researchers from the University of Washington have developed an app that turns smartphones into anemia detectors. HemaApp is a smartphone application that noninvasively monitors blood hemoglobin concentration using the smartphone’s camera and various lighting sources. Hemoglobin measurement is a standard clinical tool commonly used for screening anemia and assessing a patient’s response to iron supplement treatments. Given a light source shining through a patient’s finger, the researchers perform a chromatic analysis, analyzing the color of their blood to estimate hemoglobin level. They evaluate HemaApp on 31 patients ranging from 6 – 77 years of age, yielding a 0.82 rank order correlation with the gold standard blood test. In screening for anemia, HemaApp achieve a sensitivity and precision of 85.7% and 76.5%. Both the regression and classification performance compares favorably with , an FDA-approved noninvasive hemoglobin measurement device. The researchers also evaluate and discuss the effect of using different kinds of lighting sources.

Hemoglobin blood test # hgb blood test .harib diagnostic lab
Welcome to Harib Diagnostic lab we are providing Diagnostic Facilities Hematology Micro Bilogy Bio Chemistry Elisa Hemoglobin blood test # hgb blood test .harib diagnostic lab video link # https://youtu.be/Z8ya4neJW9g Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues back to the lungs. Hemoglobin is made up of four protein molecules (globulin chains) that are connected together. The normal adult hemoglobin (abbreviated Hgb or Hb) molecule contains two alpha-globulin chains and two beta-globulin chains. In fetuses and infants, beta chains are not common and the hemoglobin molecule is made up of two alpha chains and two gamma chains. As the infant grows, the gamma chains are gradually replaced by beta chains, forming the adult hemoglobin structure. Each globulin chain contains an important iron-containing porphyrin compound termed heme. Embedded within the heme compound is an iron atom that is vital in transporting How is hemoglobin measured? Hemoglobin is usually measured as a part of the routine complete blood count (CBC) test from a blood sample. Several methods exist for measuring hemoglobin, most of which are done currently by automated machines designed to perform different tests on blood. Within the machine, the red blood cells are broken down to get the hemoglobin into a solution. The free hemoglobin is exposed to a chemical containing cyanide that binds tightly with the hemoglobin molecule to form cyanomethemoglobin. By shining a light through the solution and measuring how much light is absorbed (specifically at a wavelength of 540 nanometers), the amount of hemoglobin can be determined. A hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin in your blood. Hemoglobin is a protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen to your body's organs and tissues and transports carbon dioxide from your organs and tissues back to your lungs. If a hemoglobin test reveals that your hemoglobin level is lower than normal, it means you have a low red blood cell count (anemia). Anemia can have many different causes, including vitamin deficiencies, bleeding and chronic diseases. If a hemoglobin test shows a higher than normal level, there are several potential causes — the blood disorder polycythemia vera, living at a high altitude, smoking, dehydration, burns and excessive vomiting. blood test https://youtu.be/Lx3CAmMpvCE facebook https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100015591840955 Google plus https://plus.google.com/b/101683933727326950082/collection/8uY-PE twitter https://twitter.com/HDLAB4 Please Subscribe my channel Like And Share

Anemia - Laboratory work-up introduction
Diagnosing anemia doesn't have to be hard! You can do it! This video is an introduction to the concepts that you need in order to diagnose anemia in your clinical rotations. I hope it helps you. If you have suggestions, send me a comment. Otherwise... Good luck in school!! After a quick intro, I'm going to talk about red blood cells, then young red blood cells, also called reticulocytes. Then some calculations that we do to correct for the reticulocyte count, called the Reticulocyte Index, the Reticulocyte Production Index. And then I'll jump into kind of an overview about diagnosing anemia and the two major approaches: the Kinetic Approach and the Morphologic Approach, okay? Let's do it. All right, dudes and dudettes, anemia work up is pretty common in your clinical rotations, whether it's in the hospital or in the, like the family medicine clinic. You're gonna need to know it. You're gonna see it several times, and so, it's high yield. Also, if you don't really know the CBC or the complete blood count, go check out that video first, because you need to understand the CBC in order to do an anemia work up. What the heck is anemia? Well, strictly defined, it is a decrease in the total number of red blood cells, or a reduction in the total red blood cell mass compared to what's normal by blood volume studies. However, a blood volume study is slow and expensive, so what you're going to see in practical use, is you're going to get a CBC and you're going to look at the hemoglobin and the hematocrit. There's all kinds of things that cause anemia and often times, when you see a person with anemia they are sick in a lot of different ways. And so, there's often multiple factors that contribute to their anemia, but that's not how I'm going to teach it here. I'm just gonna teach it as if each cause is the only cause. Okay, that's just how you have to learn it. Commonly, blood loss and iron deficiency anemia are at the top of the list. You're gonna see those quite a bit. Also B12 and folate deficiencies, or nutritional deficiencies, and then anemia of chronic disease and anemia of kidney disease are also pretty common. Next up let's talk about a few things to set the foundation or the scaffolding that you can build on to understand anemia and how we work it up. And I'm gonna do that by covering a couple of basics. If this is too basic for you, you can skip past it, that's no problem. I want to kind of talk just a minute about red blood cells. Red blood cells live about 100 to 120 days in your system, okay? That means that you need to replace about 1/100th or 1/120th of your red blood cells every single day. The production of red blood cells is called erythropoiesis and it occurs in the bone marrow from stimulation by a hormone called erythropoietin, which is made in the kidneys. And if you'll remember, I said one of the common causes of anemia is kidney disease and this is why. That the hormone that stimulates the production of red blood cells is made in the kidneys. So the kidneys aren't happy, they're not making that hormone. Also, healthy bone, with all of the required substrates that it needs to make red blood cells, can make up to five times more red blood cells than you need or that you lose from daily losses, okay? That's quite a bit more. You have the ability to produce 500% more than you lose daily, but what would that look like? Well, I guess you would see a lot of immature blood cells floating around, right? If you started making five times more red blood cells, well there'd be a lot of young juvenile or immature blood cells floating around. That makes sense, right? Yeah it does and those are called reticulocytes, or immature red blood cells. Under the microscope, you can tell the difference between a reticulocyte or an immature red blood cell, because they are slightly larger than their more mature elder brothers or sisters, and also they have some intracellular structures or fragments of ribosomal RNA still visible with inside them. This is called polychromasia. Makes sense so far? Okay, what about this? If the reticulocytes took about a day to mature and we know that we lose about 1% of our red blood cells per day, what do you think the normal percentage of reticulocytes in your blood would be? You got it. About 1%. We should see about 1% reticulocytes for a given number of red blood cells, okay? Following that logic, what would you think if I told you that you had a normal hemoglobin and a normal hematocrit, but you had a very high reticulocyte count? What would that suggest mathematically? Well, it would suggest that the lifespan of your red blood cells was somehow shorter than 100 days. If you had, I don't know, 5% reticulocytes, that would suggest that you have to replace 5% of your red blood cells per day. Meaning that you're losing 5% of your red blood cells per day to maintain your normal hemoglobin and hematocrit.

Full Blood Count – what it tells us about your health
This video explains what the Full Blood Count (FBC) blood test measures and how it can help in diagnosis and monitoring treatment. The aim is to help you understand what the test is, why your doctor may have ordered it and what your test results can show. The FBC is a commonly-ordered test and used in many situations including: - to help diagnose infection - to help diagnose anaemia - to help diagnose blood cancers like leukaemia - to help diagnose vitamin B12 and folate deficiency - to help diagnose some autoimmune conditions - to monitor the response to some types of drug or radiation treatment - to determine how severe a blood loss - to investigate a history of abnormal bleeding or clotting

Red blood cell distribution width
The red blood cell distribution width (RDW or RCDW) is a measure of the variation of red blood cell (RBC) volume that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count. Usually red blood cells are a standard size of about 6-8 μm in diameter. Certain disorders, however, cause a significant variation in cell size. Higher RDW values indicate greater variation in size. Normal reference range in human red blood cells is 11.5-14.5%. If anemia is observed, RDW test results are often used together with mean corpuscular volume (MCV) results to determine the possible causes of the anemia. It is mainly used to differentiate an anemia of mixed causes from an anemia of a single cause. Deficiencies of Vitamin B12 or folate produce a macrocytic anemia (large cell anemia) in which the RDW is elevated in roughly two-thirds of all cases; however, a varied size distribution of red blood cells is a hallmark of iron deficiency anemia, and as such shows an increased RDW in virtually all cases. In the case of a mixed iron and B12 deficiency, there will normally be a mix of both large cells and small cells, causing the RDW to be elevated. An elevated RDW (red blood cells of unequal sizes) is known as anisocytosis. An elevation in the RDW is not characteristic of all anemias; anemia of chronic disease, hereditary spherocytosis, acute blood loss, aplastic anemia (anemia resulting from an inability of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells), and certain hereditary hemoglobinopathies (including some cases of thalassemia minor) all may present with a normal RDW.

CBC Blood Test # Complete Blood Count Test, By Harib Diagnostic Lab
Welcome to Harib Diagnostic lab we are providing Diagnostic Facilities Hematology Micro Bilogy Bio Chemistry Elisa Titel Name: CBC Blood Test #Complete Blood Count Test,By Harib Diagnostic Lab Link: https://youtu.be/x5I02ade9pE Test Overview A complete blood count (CBC) gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells camera.gif, white blood cells camera.gif, and platelets. A CBC helps your doctor check any symptoms, such as weakness, fatigue, or bruising, you may have. A CBC also helps him or her diagnose conditions, such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders. A CBC test usually includes: White blood cell: White blood cell (WBC, leukocyte) count. White blood cells protect the body against infection. If an infection develops, white blood cells attack and destroy the bacteria, virus, or other organism causing it. White blood cells are bigger than red blood cells but fewer in number. When a person has a bacterial infection, the number of white cells rises very quickly. The number of white blood cells is sometimes used to find an infection or to see how the body is dealing with cancer treatment. White blood cell types (WBC differential). The major types of white blood cells are neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils. Immature neutrophils, called band neutrophils, are also part of this test. Each type of cell plays a different role in protecting the body. The numbers of each one of these types of white blood cells give important information about the immune system. Hematocrit (HCT, packed cell volume, PCV). This test measures the amount of space (volume) red blood cells take up in the blood. The value is given as a percentage of red blood cells in a volume of blood. For example, a hematocrit of 38 means that 38% of the blood's volume is made of red blood cells. Hematocrit and hemoglobin values are the two major tests that show if anemia or polycythemia is present. Hemoglobin (Hgb). The hemoglobin molecule fills up the red blood cells. It carries oxygen and gives the blood cell its red color. The hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin in blood and is a good measure of the blood's ability to carry oxygen throughout the body. Red blood cell indices: Red blood cell indices. There are three red blood cell indices: mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC). They are measured by a machine, and their values come from other measurements in a CBC. The MCV shows the size of the red blood cells. The MCH value is the amount of hemoglobin in an average red blood cell. The MCHC measures the concentration of hemoglobin in an average red blood cell. These numbers help in the diagnosis of different types of anemia. Red cell distribution width (RDW) can also be measured which shows if the cells are all the same or different sizes or shapes. Platelet: Platelet (thrombocyte) count. Platelets (thrombocytes) are the smallest type of blood cell. They are important in blood clotting. When bleeding occurs, the platelets swell, clump together, and form a sticky plug that helps stop the bleeding. If there are too few platelets, uncontrolled bleeding may be a problem. If there are too many platelets, there is a chance of a blood clot forming in a blood vessel. Also, platelets may be involved in hardening of the arteries. Mean platelet volume (MPV). Mean platelet volume measures the average amount (volume) of platelets. Mean platelet volume is used along with platelet count to diagnose some diseases. If the platelet count is normal, the mean platelet volume can still be too high or too low. Your doctor may order a blood smear test to be done at the same time as a CBC but it is not part of the regular CBC test. In this test, a drop of blood is spread (smeared) on a slide and stained with a special dye. The slide is looked at under a microscope. The number, size, and shape of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are recorded. Blood cells with different shapes or sizes can help diagnose many blood diseases, such as leukemia, malaria, or sickle cell disease.

What your Blood Test Reveals
It’s not always the most comfortable part of your doctor’s visit, but Marissa Roberts, a nurse practitioner with Lee Health, says your blood can reveal a lot about your overall health. “Lab work is kind of part of a puzzle piece and we use that in order to determine what’s going on.” Blood work typically checks for three things: CBC, metabolic panel, and a fasting lipid panel. “A CBC is a complete blood count, so that’s where we look at your red blood cells and white blood cells. We measure your hemoglobin and your hematocrit to make sure you don’t have any anemia,” said Roberts. Patients with a low hemoglobin or anemia may experience fatigue, shortness of breath, or dizziness, which could be related to diet, age, or a medical condition that needs to be evaluated. “If somebody comes in and they’re complaining of fatigue and it’s been six months since they had their last lab work done then we’ll go ahead and draw those labs,” said Roberts. They also look at the metabolic panels which checks for electrolytes, potassium, sodium, and calcium. “We also check liver function and kidney function to make sure you’re organs are working the way they are supposed to,” said Roberts. Other times doctors may request patients do a fasting lab, where the patient can’t eat for 12 hours. “One of the biggest reasons that we do fasting labs is to get the baseline. We want to see how your body deals with glucose without any additional food,” said Roberts. Depending on the results, patients may need to have more blood work to make sure they aren’t at risk for diabetes or other health conditions. “It is so important to come in for annual labs and it is so important for us to monitor these things,” said Roberts. Patients are encouraged to get their blood work checked every year. If the patient is experiencing symptoms health experts may decide to do blood work more often to keep an eye on the patient’s overall health.

RDW Blood Test - Red cell distribution width
RDW Blood Test - http://rdwbloodtest.com https://youtu.be/SoDwbp_l9yw Red cell distribution width You have just returned from a visit to your physician and they have listed off a number of stats to you, one being RDW. So just what is RDW on a blood test? RDW, or Red blood cell distribution width, refers to the variation in size of the red blood cells in a blood sample. Usually this information is included in the CBC Test, or Complete Blood Count Test. The standard size of healthy red blood cells is about 6-8 μm in diameter. If they are different than this, it can indicate certain disorders. https://youtu.be/SoDwbp_l9yw When there is a wide range in the size of the red blood cells it means you have higher RDW levels. It is within these higher levels that certain conditions can exist. A very common cause of high RDW values deficiencies in Vitamin b12 or Folate. This can lead to anemia, in particular macrocytic anemia (or large cell anemia). RDW values in conjunction with mean corpuscular volume (MCV) are usually used to diagnose the cause of the anemia. http://rdwbloodtest.com Anemia types and conditions associated with high RDW include: B12 and Pernicious anemia Folic acid anemia Iron deficiency anemia combined with other anemia Hemolytic anemia Transfusions Sideroblastic anemia Alcohol abuse Various less common and hereditary anemia Anemia types and conditions associated with low RDW values include: Iron deficiency anemia (blood loss, parasites, poor iron absorption, etc.) Vitamin B6 anemia Rheumatoid arthritis http://rdwbloodtest.com rdw blood test cbc test mchc blood test hemoglobin
