Complete blood count. It is a microscopic examination of the cells in your blood. It is an estimated count of the number of red blood cells, oxygen carrying cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), the infection fighting cells and platelets (thrombocytes), clot-forming cells.
The CBC also provides information about the concentration of your red blood cells (hematocrit), the amount of hemoglobin (protein that carries oxygen), a breakdown of the amounts of various types of white blood cells (they work in different ways) and red cell indices (amount of hemoglobin per red cell, size of red cells, etc.)
