Associations of the average corpuscular hemoglobin concentration in red cells with clinical characteristics of acute myocardial infarction

Author Affiliations


The aim was to examine the association between the mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and clinical gender characteristics in acute myocardial infarction. Material and Methods: MCHC has been determined in 250 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with ST-segment elevation, mean age of 53.3 ± 8.9 years. The general blood test with MCHC determination was conducted with the hematology analyzer Sysmex xt-4000i. Results and Discussion: It was detected during the analysis of covariance that the most significant (p  < 0.001) associations of MCHC were with hemoglobin (F  =  4339), hematocrit (F  =  3505), fatal events in combination with chronic anemia (F  =  81.4), male gender in combination with cancer (F  =  51.5), male gender (F  =  40.4), cancer (F  =  40.0), fatal events (F  =  36.2) and chronic anemia (F  =  18.9).
