My Motto ”Prevention is better than Cure” Part 3


Dear Friends,

In my last post,I explained how an heart attack occurs and mentioned a few basic investigations if somebody gets a chest pain. Let us understand the tests one by one:-

1]CBC–This means complete blood count wherein we have many parameters such as hemoglobin[Hb],red blood cell count[RBC],white blood cell count[WBC] etc.

a] Hb is a measure of the red pigment heme in red blood cell which carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body and a very important one because if there is lack of Hb,the oxygen carrying capacity of the RBC becomes less and all the parts of the body gets less oxygen which they need to produce energy by a function called oxidation.Lack of Hb is called anemia and the person will appear pale and weak.
