Abstract
Aims & Objectives: This study of hematological parameters is the object of continuing intensive research of hematopoietic system to the functional integrity in aging. (1) Assessment of Hb, total RBC count in healthy young adult as well as in elderly subject.(2) Assessment of Hct & blood indices (MCV, MCH, MCHC) in healthy young adult as well as in elderly subject.(3) Comparing the values of Hb & total RBC count in healthy young adult with the elderly subject.(4) Comparing the values of Hct & blood indices (MCV, MCH, MCHC) in healthy young adult with the elderly subject.(5) To co-relate the results of present study with findings of other studies. Material & Methods: The hematological indices analysed were Hb, HCT, and Total RBC Count, Blood indices like MCV, MCH & MCHC. Hematological values were measured by the different method in laboratory with the use of standard test reagent. Results: In present study, the result shows that a significant decrease in Hb concentration and RBC count are associated with decrease in Hct, MCH, MCHC and little increase in MCV. Conclusion: In present study, the overall assessment shows that a significant decrease in Hb concentration, reticulocyte count and RBC count are associated with decrease in Hct, MCH, MCHC and little increase in MCV. These results show a significant decrease in haematological parameters in old age and fairly accurate reflection of decreased erythropoietic activity of bone marrow.
