PCV (Packed Cell Volume) Test Cost

The percent of red blood cells in blood of one's system is measured using packed cell volume test (PCV). The red blood cells are one of the components that form blood. They carry oxygen to all the body parts.

PCV test evaluates blood loss, Polycythemia, hemolytic anemia, and anemia. The test needs to be done within 6 hours of blood sample collection. However, if the blood is stored at 4 degree Celsius, a delay of 24 hours maximum can be adjusted.

When the role of red blood cells is disturbed due to higher or lower concentration of this component in your blood, it leads to health abnormalities. As a result, you experience immediate signs of malfunctions in your system.

When your red blood cell count decreases, you are more likely to experience shortness of breath. This is because the red blood cells that carry oxygen through your system get insufficient for your entire system. This also results in fatigue due to lack of breathing and energy. Headache, rise in heart rate, dizziness, and pale skin, are few of the symptoms that can be noticed in such patients.

If you have increased count of red blood cells in your system, you can experience symptoms similar to that of low count red blood cells. Feeling extremely tired and shortness of breath are the common symptoms of both high and low range of RBC. Stiffness in your limbs, joint pain, itchy skin, sleeplessness, are few other signs experienced in a patients having high levels of RBC in their blood.

The common symptoms of both high and low range RBC cases are similar. That is why, doctors usually ask you to undergo a test in order to confirm the condition. Test reports also give your physician the approximate count in rise or fall of your red blood cell count; according to which your doctor knows what is the feasible treatment option for your health condition.

Learning about all your current health aspects, medical history, daily routine and diet, the doctor will give you a treatment plan. Test reports show to what extent your RBC count differs from its normal value, according to which your medical procedures are planned. If the difference is too much, you might need a blood transfusion as the earliest. If not, medicines and few dietary changes help in normalizing the value of RBC. PCV test can also be done as part of CBC (Complete Blood Count) test.
