is there any discussion on this site where it tells us about the lab reports - I can understand the CBC and the Comprehensive Metabolic  panel but all the others are greek,

Like the Automated 5 Part Differential report,   it would just be nice to know what is the most important one (s) which one is for the blasts (if it shows on the lab report at all)

just over all what to look for.I thought I saw something on this site about it but I cannot find it now  Thanks!

Regarding the Automated 5 Part Differential, it is an optional part of a CBC that looks at the 5 types of WBCs is detail, namely the neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes.  Many CBCs do this now.  Blast count should be provided in the Notes section, but only if blasts are detected, otherwise it will not be mentioned.
