What is this test?

CBC With ESR Westergren Blood is a combination of two tests. The complete blood count or CBC in short measures the number of each type of component present in the blood. They include Red blood cells (RBC), White blood cells (WBC), Platelets (PLTs), Hemoglobin (Hb) and Hematocrit in the blood.

While ESR (Erythrocyte sedimentation rate) is used to measure the amount of time taken for the red blood cells to settle down in a test tube. In the Westergren test, the ESR of the blood is found out by using a calibrated instrument called the Westergren tube. ESR test is used to detect any presence of inflammation in the body. The inflammation can be due to infections, trauma, injury, autoimmune disorders, etc. However, this test does not specify the exact cause of inflammation.

What are Blood cells, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, and ESR?

Blood is composed of cells and necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen needed for the health. The blood cells are produced in the bone marrow and are released into the blood. It provides nutrients and helps in the transport of gases within cells and tissues.

The three main types of blood cells are:

Red Blood Cells (RBC):

  • Red blood cells contain a complex protein called hemoglobin. It carries oxygen to the body's organs and tissues from the lungs.

White Blood Cells (WBC):

  • White blood cells also called leukocytes that help to protect the body against infections and foreign invaders, thus an important part of our immune system.
  • These cells are originated from bone marrow but circulate throughout the bloodstream.

Platelets (PLTs):

  • Platelets are the smallest blood cells that help the blood to clot during bleeding.

Hemoglobin and Hematocrit are the other two important substances in the blood. Hemoglobin is a complex protein found in red blood cells. It carries oxygen to the body's organs and tissues from the lungs. It also transports carbon dioxide from the body back to the lungs. Hematocrit is the percentage of red blood cell found in the whole blood.

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate is a blood test that measures the rate at which the red blood cells sediment at the bottom of a test tube in an hour. Normally, the red blood cells settle down very gradually at the bottom of the test tube. But in the case of inflammation, the cells clump together and become denser. This makes the cells to quickly settle to the bottom of a test tube.

Why this test is performed?

Your doctor may ask to perform this test to diagnose or to screen for diseases and conditions such as anemia, infections, cancer or any bleeding disorder.

If you have a family history of blood disorders or conditions that affect blood cells, your doctor may ask you to perform this test on a 6-monthly basis or a yearly basis. Anemic patients should perform this test on a regular basis, as instructed by the doctor.
