Best Answer

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).

A blood count test is a blood test to count how many blood cells are in your blood to check if you're healthy (i.e. white blood cells, plasma count, red blood cells, etc.). they CAN test for anything in your blood, but more than likely they will not. This is a standard medical procedure and doctors wont go out of their way to test you unless they really have a reason. There is also a confidentiality agreement doctors have where they can not report things like drug use to the police. Even if you're a minor they wont alert your parents, but they may confront you about it. Best of luck mane.
