Word of the Day


Pronunciation /iˈriTHrəˌsīt/ /ɪˈrɪθrəˌsaɪt/
A red blood cell that (in humans) is typically a biconcave disc without a nucleus. Erythrocytes contain the pigment hemoglobin, which imparts the red color to blood, and transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the tissues.


When you get your next blood test,
I hope the news is nothing but the best.
They’ll check lipid panel, TSH and CMP
And with CBC, they’ll count erythrocytes,
Then, with proper treatment, set everything to rights.
