    Author(s): Abhijit Agrawal, Sunil Kumar* and Jahanvi Bhagwati

    Introduction: There are evidence of age-related changes in platelet count and function, driven by changes in hematopoietic tissue, the composition of the blood and vascular health. Platelet count remains relatively stable during middle age but falls in elderly people. In this study we had tried to correlate platelet indices with the clinical profile like blood sugar, Lipid profile, blood pressure, Ischemic Heart disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in elderly patients admitted in rural teaching hospital. Materials and methods: In this study, we have included 1000 patients among them 601 (60.1%) were males and 399 (39.9%) were females with the mean age of 66.02 ± 5.76 years. We studied platelet indices like plateletcrit (PCT), platelet distribution width (PDW) and mean platelet volume (MPV). Observation .. Read More»
