This test measures the portion of your blood that is made up of red blood cells. It is one of the tests that is done to check for anemia.

  • The hematocrit is usually done as part of a complete blood count.
  • It is most often calculated from other tests in the complete blood count, rather than directly measured.

In an adult, the blood sample is taken by placing a needle in a vein in the arm. It can also be checked by pricking your finger.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
