Abstract

The aim of the study is to find a new method for the evaluation of the packed cell volume in horses, that does not require a centrifuge or other instruments. With the help of this method the test could be implemented even in a stable, without clinical circumstances. The basis of the method is that blood sedimentation in horses is quicker than in other domestic animals. So the plasma and blood cells mixed with anticoagulant in a syringe separate relatively quickly in upright position, without using a centrifuge. Syringe has been chosen as a measuring instrument for the estimation of the packed cell volume, as every vet has one, and the scale on it makes the reading and proportioning of the anticoagulant easy. The tests were carried out with 2, 5, 10 and 20 ml syringes to make comparison. Heparin and trisodium-citrate were used as anticoagulants. The measurements were carried out in the 10th, 20th, 30th, 45th, 60th and 90th minute of the sedimentation. During the examination there were no significant differences between the syringes, but for practical reasons the 5 ml one proved to be the best. The results with heparin were much more exact than the ones with sodium-citrate. The method is suitable to decide whether the packed cell volume of the animal is under or above 45 or 50%, after 30-45 minutes. So the veterinarian can decide more easily if an infusion therapy is needed or not. And after 60 minutes the packed cell volume can be well evaluated. The conclusion is that with the help of a syringe and a cone of heparin every vet has the possibility to estimate the status of colic horses with better result and to choose the right therapy. It helps to decide whether the horse needs immediate clinical treatment or not.
