Abstract

PACKED CELL VOLUME AND HAEMOGLOBIN CONCENTRATION OF TUBERCULOSIS PATIENTS

Chuku, L.C*, Ekhator A.O. and Ochonogor, K.A

ABSTRACT

Packed cell volume test for tuberculosis patients were carried out on a hundred and twenty (120) patients which were divided into four age groups; 20-30 years, 30-40 years, 40-50 years and 50-60 years. It was found that the packed cell volume and haemoglobin concentration decreases with age. Within the age bracket of 20-30 years, the PCV (%) of females was between the range of 35-39% and 38-45% in males, the Hb (g/dL) of females was between the range of 11.6- 13.0g/dL and 12.6-15.0g/dL in males. Within the age bracket of 30-40 years, the PCV of females was between the range of 31-37% and 33- 40% in males and the Hb of females was between the range of 10.3- 12.3g/dL and 11.0-13.3g/dL in males. Then, within the bracket of 40- 50 years, the PCV of females is 21-28% and 30-35% in males and the Hb of females was 7.0-9.3g/dL and 10.0-11.6g/dL in males. Lastly, within the age bracket of 50-60 years, the PCV of females was 18.0-21.0% and 11.0-33.0% in males and the Hb of females was 6.0-8.6g/dL and 3.6-11.0g/dL in males. The research aims at studying the volume of red cells and haemoglobin levels of tuberculosis patients within various age groups, compared to normal standard.

Keywords: Tuberculosis, packed cell volume, haemoglobin.
