ABSTRACT Se procesaron 435 muestras de embarazadas clínicamente sanas con la finalidad de obtener valores hematológicos de referencia utilizando un contador con tecnología actual. Los resultados, media y desvío estándar de cada parámetro hallado, se presentan agrupados por trimestres de gestación, lo cual permite observar las variaciones a lo largo del embarazo. Han sido significativos la disminución de hemoglobina y el aumento de leucocitos a expensas de neutrófilos y monocitos. Cualquier mínimo cambio en los valores hematimétricos de una embarazada, fuera de lo esperado fisiológicamente para cada trimestre, debe ser considerado en cuanto a magnitud y tiempo de gesta. Esto puede sugerir la presencia de alguna patología.

    ABSTRACT: To determine reference values for full blood count parameters in a population of children 8 to 12 years old, living at an altitude of 2760m above sea level. Our sample consisted of 102 individuals on whom a full blood count was performed. The parameters included: total number of red blood cells, platelets, white cells, and a differential count (millions/μl and %) of neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. Additionally, we obtained values for hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, concentration of corpuscular hemoglobin and red blood cell distribution width. The results were statistically analyzed with a non-parametric test, to divide the sample in quartiles and obtain the lower and upper limits for our intervals. Moreover, the values for the intervals obtained from this analysis were compared to intervals obtained estimating+- 2 standard deviations above and below from our mean values. Our results showed significant differences compared to normal interval values reported for the adult Mexican population in most of the parameters studied. The full blood count is an important laboratory test used routinely for the initial assessment of a patient. Values of full blood counts in healthy individuals vary according to gender, age and geographic location; therefore, each population should have its own reference values.
