H and H Blood Test
The H and H (Hemoglobin and Hematocrit) blood test measures the levels of hemoglobin and hematocrit in the blood. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body, while hematocrit measures the percentage of red blood cells in the total blood volume. The H and H blood test provides information about the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood and can help in diagnosing and monitoring various conditions like anemia, polycythemia, and dehydration.
