Thanks lupe mika March 24, 2015 so what if people have more white blood cells and less red blood cells in the body Paul Kingsley March 24, 2015 Well someone should chime in: what about megakaryocytes and platelets? You have 5 million red cells per microliter, you have 1 million platelets per microliter, the second most abundant blood cell type. You make 2 million red cells per second, you also make 2 million platelets per second. The platelets are required for clotting, and they are also made in the bone marrow, made by a large cell called a megakaryocyte.

Lee Short March 24, 2015 Nice primer on our blood. ‘Bands’ and ‘segs’ are neutrophils and serve the same function. Segmented neutrophils are the mature form. Most hematology analyzers do not differentiate segs and bands and report a five cell count: neutrophil, lymphocyte, monocyte, eosinophil, and basophil. A manual differential would further classify the cells’ lineage but requires slide-staining and microscopy. Platelets should have also been included. They serve a crucial role in our blood. Maybe you intend to do another video on coagulation to describe their function and the clotting factors? Tie in hemophilia and the royal family!
