In Peripheral Blood: White Cell Count, 10^3/ml
For both Men and Women, the average is 7.8 10^3/ml
In Peripheral Blood: Red Cell Count, 10^6/ml
In men, the average is 5.21 10^6/ml

In women, the average is 4.60 10^6/ml
In Peripheral Blood: Hemoglobin, g/dl
iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of the blood in vertebrates and other animals.

In men, the average is 15.7 g/dl

In women, the average is 13.8 g/dl
In Peripheral Blood: Hematocrit (%)
The hematocrit (Ht or HCT) and packed cell volume (PCV) are measures of the proportion of blood volume that is occupied by red blood cells.

For men, average is 46%

For women, average is 40%
In Peripheral Blood: Mean Corpuscular Volume, fl/RBC
The mean corpuscular volume, or MCV, is a measure of the average red blood cell volume (i.e. size) that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count.

For both men and women, average is 88.0 fl/RBC
In Peripheral Blood: Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin, pg/RBC
The mean corpuscular hemoglobin, or "mean cell hemoglobin" (MCH), is a measure of the mass of hemoglobin contained by a red blood cell. It is reported as part of a standard complete blood count.

For both men and women, the average is 30.4 pg/RBC
In Peripheral Blood: Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration, g/dl
The mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, or MCHC, is a measure of the concentration of hemoglobin in a given volume of packed red blood cell. It is reported as part of a standard complete blood count.

In both men and women, the average is 34.4 g/dl
In Peripheral Blood: Red Cell Distribution Width, CV (%)
The red blood cell distribution width, or RDW, is a measure of the variation of red blood cell volume that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count. Usually red blood cells are a standard size.

For both men and women, the average is 13.1%
In Peripheral Blood: Platelet Count, 10^3/ml
For both men and women, the average is 311 10^3/ml
Monocyte - function, relation to lymphocyte
(PHAGOCYTOSIS)
White blood cell that participates in the inflammatory process and coordinates hematopoiesis and immune responses by synthesis and release of cytokines

Lymphocytes and monocytes are classified as agranulocytes, meaning they a usually free of specific cytoplasmic granules.
Neutrophils - function, shape/size
(PHAGOCYTOSIS OF BACTERIA)
-Participate in inflammatory reactions to microorganisms, especially bacteria, mediated by cytoplasmic granules.

-Have granules
-Have lobes
-Most numerous of the leukocytes in a smear of normal blood.
Eosinophils - function, noteworthy structures
(COMBATS PARASITES)
-Participate in inflammatory reactions to microorganisms, especially parasites, and agents that typically provoke an allergic reaction.
-Presence of numerous cytoplasmic granules that stain with eosin.
-Significantly larger than granules of neutrophiles, closely packed
-Nucleus is usually lobed
Basophil - function, noteworthy structures
(ALLERGIC REACTIONS)
-Participate in inflammatory reactions of the allergic nature.
-Range in size of basophil granules is not uniform at all. Sometimes the cytoplasmic granules stain superimposed over the nucleus making it hard to see its edges.
