What is CLAiT equivalent to?
What are the CLAiT courses worth? Level one ITQ is roughly the same level of difficulty as a GCSE D – G, with level two roughly equating to a GCSE A*- C. They are all IT User qualifications. The advanced level three option, is roughly the same level of difficulty as an NVQ level 3 or A Level.
What is considered a low blood count?
Hemoglobin (Hb or Hgb) is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. A low hemoglobin count is generally defined as less than 13.5 grams of hemoglobin per deciliter (135 grams per liter) of blood for men and less than 12 grams per deciliter (120 grams per liter) for women.
What are normal hematology results?
Red blood cells: 4.5 million to 5.9 million cells/mcL for men; 4.1 million to 5.1 million cells/mcL for women. Hemoglobin: 14 to 17.5 grams per deciliter (gm/dL) for men; 12.3 to 15.3 gm/dL for women. Hematocrit: 41.5% to 50.4% for men; 35.9% to 44.6% for women. Mean corpuscular volume: 80 to 96.
What is a normal blood count for a woman?
Women usually have a lower RBC count than men, and the level of red blood cells tends to decrease with age. A normal RBC count would be: men – 4.7 to 6.1 million cells per microlitre (cells/mcL) women – 4.2 to 5.4 million cells/mcL.
What replaced the ECDL?
In March, the government removed the ECDL qualification from accountability measures from 2018. However, like the old ECDL, the TLM qualification falls into “bucket three” of the Progress 8, meaning that it, as a level two certificate, is worth the same as GCSEs in subjects such as art and drama.
Is ECDL equivalent to NVQ?
Some schools enter students in Year 7 (aged 11-12), others later. The BCS has confirmed that it is suitable for students of any age. ECDL is a Level 2 qualification and is accredited by OFQUAL. This means that it is equivalent to a GCSE in terms of UCAS points (ie for university applications).
What is normal hemoglobin range?
The normal range for hemoglobin is: For men, 13.5 to 17.5 grams per deciliter. For women, 12.0 to 15.5 grams per deciliter.
What is the normal range for blood count?
|Red blood cell count||Male: 4.35-5.65 trillion cells/L* (4.35-5.65 million cells/mcL**) Female: 3.92-5.13 trillion cells/L (3.92-5.13 million cells/mcL)|
|Hematocrit||Male: 38.3-48.6 percent Female: 35.5-44.9 percent|
|White blood cell count||3.4-9.6 billion cells/L (3,400 to 9,600 cells/mcL)|
Is 8 a low blood count?
Extra blood units are not helpful. A normal hemoglobin level is 11 to 18 grams per deciliter (g/dL), depending on your age and gender. But 7 to 8 g/dL is a safe level. Your doctor should use just enough blood to get to this level. Often, one unit of blood is enough.
Is there a set amount of blood in a unit?
There is no set amount of blood in a unit. That is why they are called units. Typically the bag of packed red blood cells will say on the label “From 500 ml CPD (or CPDA) whole blood.”.
How many platelets are in one unit of blood?
A single unit of platelets would have about 35 mls of platelets. In Europe, Australia and New Zealand a patient would receive a pooled unit from 4 donors (2*10^12 platelets). In the US, Asia and Israel a pooled unit is from 6 patients and is 3*10^12 platelets.
What are the critical values of the Mayo Clinic blood test?
not present Test Report Name Age Critical Low Critical High Units Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time, P ≥ 150 sec Fibrinogen ≤ 60 mg/dL Hemoglobin 0-7 weeks ≤ 6.0 ≥ 24.0 g/dL Hemoglobin 7 weeks ≤ 6.0 ≥ 20.0 g/dL
How many milliliters are in a bag of blood?
Given that a typical hematocrit in an adult is about 40%, the original bag of blood will have something like 200 ml of packed red blood cells (40% of 500). If the unit has a final hematocrit, after processing, of 70%, then the total volume in the unit is 285 ml (200/0.7).
