Red blood cell count
The Red Blood Cell (RBC) count is a part of the Complete Blood Count (CBC) test that measures the number of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body. The RBC count provides information about the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood and can help diagnose and monitor various medical conditions like anemia, polycythemia, and certain chronic diseases.
