  1. According to the hematology lecture I am currently listening to (M2 path), “Most physicians order one or the other since one reflects the other.”

  2. Dear Blogger,

    The team at Premed Network has recently come across your blog.

    I’m the President of Premed Network, a nationwide network of premed students.

    The vision of Premed Network is to create a platform for the next generation of physicians.

    We are reaching out to select medical student bloggers to share their posts in our community.

    Joining just takes a minute and adding a blog post can be done with just a couple of clicks. You don’t have to write new blogs for our community, you can just repost those which you have already written.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,

    Omar Baig

  3. In Canada, we hardly ever discuss/acknowledge the Hct. We raise our eyebrows in wonder at the American textbooks that seem obsessed with it but in our everyday work it is the Hb that matters. Why? No idea. Strange cultural differences, eh?
