Exploring red cell distribution width as a potential risk factor in emergency bowel sur...
PloS One; Berry M, Gosling JL et. al.

May 6th, 2022 - Increased preoperative red cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with higher mortality following non-cardiac surgery in patients older than 65 years. Little is known if this association holds for all adult emergency laparotomy patients and w...

Higher red cell distribution width and poorer hospitalization-related outcomes in elder...
Journal of the American Geriatrics Society; Kim KM, Nerlekar R et. al.

May 5th, 2022 - Red cell distribution width (RDW), an index for variation of red blood cell (RBC) size, has been proposed as a potential marker for poorer outcomes in several aging-related diseases and conditions. We tested whether greater variability of RBC size...

Cross-Sectional Association Between Blood Cell Phenotypes, Cognitive Function, and Brai...
Journal of Alzheimer's Disease : JAD; Fang Y, Doyle MF et. al.

Apr 19th, 2022 - Peripheral inflammation is associated with increased risk for dementia. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), red cell distribution width (RDW), and mean platelet volume (MPV), are easily measured circulating blood cell phenotypes reflecting chron...
