page 2 Experiment Results Predict Question: Predict Question: Predict how the hematocrits of the patients living in Denver, Colorado (approximately one mile above sea level), will compare with the hematocrit levels of the patients living in Boston, Massachusetts (at sea level). Your answer : c. The hematocrits of the Denver residents will be higher than those of the Boston residents. Why would the hemoglobin levels of an anemic patient be lower than the hemoglobin levels of a normal, healthy individual? You correctly answered: c. Because hemoglobin resides in RBCs, you would anticipate a low hematocrit level to coincide with a low hemoglobin level. Experiment Data: Blood sample Height of column of blood Height of red blood cell layer Height of buffy coat (white blood cells) Hematocrit % WBC 1 100 mm
