What is the effect of a bacterial infection on the hematocrit?

Its really simple if you think about it. if you have a bacterial infection your white blood cell count would increase because as the wbc's are fighting off the infection they die off releasing a chemical into the blood stream that tells your body to increase production of white blood cells. so the hematocrit would have a thicker buffer layer. the buffer layer being the white blood cells. With a higher production of white blood cells the rbc production would very slightly decrease which would decrease the ratio of rbc to whole blood volume.
