Also known as: CBC.
A complete blood count is a common blood test that’s often taken during physicals or other medical checkups. It provides an evaluation of overall health, and also checks for certain disorders such as infection, anemia, leukemia, immune system disorders and other diseases.
A routine blood draw is required in order to begin the CBC. The blood sample is then taken to a laboratory for testing and analysis.
Local bleeding or trauma at the site where the blood is draw and infection are the main risks factors.
