About Hematocrit Calculator (Formula)
Hematocrit is a measure of the percentage of red blood cells (RBC) in whole blood. It is used to evaluate an individual’s red blood cell levels and can help in the diagnosis of anemia, polycythemia, and other conditions.
The formula for Hematocrit is:
Hematocrit = (RBC (grams/100ml) / MCV (fl)) x 100
To calculate hematocrit, you need to determine the RBC and MCV values. RBC is the weight of red blood cells in grams per 100ml of whole blood and MCV is the mean volume of the individual red blood cells in femtoliters (fl).
Once you have this information, you can use the formula to calculate the percentage of RBC in whole blood, which is hematocrit.
