I am doing research on intravascular volume changes during gestation (plasma and red blood cell increase and total blood volume). An example of date that I would like to find:
- Plasma volume increase/decrease by week
- RBC Volume increase/decrease by week
- Total blood volume increase/decrease by week
- Platelet increase/decrease by week
The data that I can find is very limited and mainly consists of graphs without the data available (like this: http://resources.ama.uk.com/glowm_www/graphics/figures/v2/0130/008f.gif). I have extracted data points from these graphs but this is very time consuming and not very accurate. One of the goals of this research is to compare hematocrit (HCT) of healthy individuals to individuals with blood issues or a history of blood disease in order to be able to extrapolate developments based on current lab outcomes. Any help would be immensely appreciated!
