18) Therefore, the elevation in aminotransferase levels during the night would not be due to hemoconcentration but to other factors (probably due to OSA with hypoxemia), and there were significant correlations between serum aminotransferase levels in the morning and increases from afternoon values to those the next morning (Fig.
It was found that children with SCLS had at least one acute, severe episode of hypotension, hypoalbuminemia, and hemoconcentration in the absence of underlying cause for these abnormalities.
Hemoconcentration was seen as raised hemoglobin or red blood corpuscles count.

Thus, the other way around, the noticed decrease of ESV is explained by a decrease of the back flow of blood, induced, itself, through hemoconcentration and decrease in blood volume (Grover et al.
dagger]) Dengue hemorrhagic fever is characterized by all of the following: fever lasting 2-7 days, evidence of hemorrhagic manifestation or a positive tourniquet test, thrombocytopenia (platelets [less than or equal to] 100,000/[micro]L), and evidence of plasma leakage indicated by hemoconcentration (an increase in hematocrit [greater than or equal to] 20% above average for age or a decrease in hematocrit [greater than or equal to] 20% of baseline after fluid replacement therapy), or pleural effusion, or ascites or hypoproteinemia.
Subsequent analyses of the neonate's blood samples generated a hematological profile with the highest RBC, Hgb, and PCV values, and the lowest TPP of the sampled cohort (Table 1), indicative of hemoconcentration and dehydration concomitant with prolonged nutritional deprivation (Coles 1980: 116-117, Benjamin 1981: 73, 146-147, DelGiudice et al.
In our dog, hematological values showed hemoconcentration instead of anemia which may be due to shifting of fluid from intravascular to extravascular component.
We get fixed on platelet count, but the most tella- tale sign is the rising haemoglobin called hemoconcentration.
Laboratory tests may reveal thrombocytopenia, leukopenia and hemoconcentration.
Hemolymph copper/hemocyanin levels have been shown to vary dramatically between individuals (Pilson 1965, Ainslie 1980), a phenomenon that may be due, at least in part, to hemoconcentration during avoidance behavior or handling (Ragg 2003).
