The CBC, or Complete Blood Count, is one of the most common tests performed in the Clinical Laboratory. The results of this test can completely alter patients’ lives by ruling-out or confirming major conditions and diseases such as anemia, leukemia, and thalassemia. Understanding how the CBC is determined will help you provide quality results that your clinicians can trust.
This recorded webinar is designed to give you a better understanding of how specimen integrity affects hematology testing; how the analyzer determines the different components of the CBC; and what these results mean to patients.
This Webinar CEexpress course focuses on:
- Describing how specimen integrity impacts hematology testing.
- Defining the mechanisms used by hematology analyzers.
- Interpreting CBC results.
The course links you to an archived version of the webinar slide and audio program, and to available pdf file resources. Your computer must have audio capabilities to hear the audio portion of the presentation.
You must successfully complete the quiz and submit the course evaluation to receive credit.
