Erythrocytosis

Erythrocytosis refers to an elevation of the total number of red cells in blood. In practical terms it can be defined by measuring either blood haemoglobin concentration, packed cell volume (haematocrit) or erythrocyte concentration.
  • In women: haemoglobin > 155 g/l, haematocrit > 0.46, or erythrocytes > 5.2 × 1012/l
  • In men: haemoglobin > 167 g/l, haematocrit > 0.50, or erythrocytes > 5.7 × 1012/l
