A question on lab values

  1. 0
    So my class on lab data analysis starts Wednesday, and looking over a case study she sent out, I am confused. For the patient's WBC, the findings are 15 H. What does H stand for? I can't find it anywhere. Sorry if this is painfully obvious, but I am lost!

    H means it is high. L means the levels are low. Hope that helps!

    It's a beautiful day to save lives.
