hematocrit

[hem-at-uh-krit]the percentage of the blood volume made up of red blood cells, which is often measured as part of a complete blood count. This can get low in people with cancer, either as a result of problems from the cancer itself (such as bleeding) or from treatments such as chemotherapy. The normal range varies by lab, but typically is around 37% to 52% of the blood volume.
