A red blood cell, (the cells that Give blood its distinctive red

colour). A red blood cell's (erythrocyte) function is to carry

haemoglobin around the body. Haemoglobin carries oxygen which is

required for cellular respiration

An RBC count is used in a variety of tests in the diagnosis of

disease

They are normally confined to blood vessels, which is

specialized to transport oxygen. When mature, red blood cells are

biconcave discs, which lack a nucleus and contain hemoglobin. Women

have about 4 million to 5 million erythrocytes per cubic millimeter

(microliter) of blood and men about 5 million to 6 million; people

living at high altitudes with low oxygen tension will have more.

The RBC reference range 4.5-5.9 (x1012/L) in males and 3.8-5.2

(x1012/L).
