Good evening. This week we’re going to work together to manage an elderly patient with a leukocytosis.
Mr Jones is 77 and attends his GP practice for his annual ‘birthday bloods.’ The following results were obtained:
Hb 110 g/dl
- lymphocytes: 14.5
- Neutrophils 3.9
What questions should you ask Mr Jones?
Haematology staff: what would you look for on the film if this sample came to your lab?
