In 1mm3 of blood, there is 5 million red blood cells (erythrocytes), 10,000 white blood cells (leukocytes) and 300,000 platelets (rarely known as thrombocytes).
I answered a medical question and I'm only 15! Don't let that put you off. (Besides, I used a medical book to answer your question).
1mm3 is only a thousandth of a mL, therefore, 1mL of blood would have about a thousand times more of each. I.e. 5 billion RBCs, 10 million WBC, and about 250-300 million platelets
The red blood cell count is usually measured per micro liter of blood. Results may vary according to individuals though the normal range for males is between 4.7-6.1 million red blood cells per micro liter and for females the range is between 4.2-5.4 million cells per micro liter of blood.
The female red blood cell count is understood to be considerably lesser in comparison to their male counterparts because of the blood loss through menstruation every month. http://library.thinkquest.org/C0115080/?c=cbc
There are 5-6 billion red blood cells in 1cm3 of blood.
On average there are 4.5-5.5 million Red Blood Cells per 1 m L of blood .
It is not exactly the same each time. Most are about 200 ml.

Hemoglobin molcules account for more than 95 percent of Erythrocyte's proteins. There are approx. 280 million moleules of hemoglobin in each RBC. hemoglobin also carries about 23 percent of carbon dioxide transposted in the blood.. And the bindings of amino acids to carbon dioxide or globin subunits is reversable
Typically when people refer to a blood bag they mean a transfusion of packed red blood cells. A transfusion of one unit of packed red blood cells would be approximately 250 mL.
Packed red blood cells (PRBCs), also called "packed cells," are a preparation of red blood cells that are transfused to correct low blood levels. A unit of PRBCs begins as a 450 milliliter volume of whole blood. Platelets and plasma are removed to leave a preparation of 220 milliliters of mostly red blood cells. This step concentrates the red blood cells so that they occupy less space, thus the term "packed." One unit of PRBCs typically will raise the hematocrit by 3-4% and the blood hemoglobin concentration by 1 gm/dl. PRBCs last in refrigeration for up to 42 days, but under the right conditions, they can be frozen for up to a decade.
It depends. There is no set amount of cc in each unit of blood. The institution I work for handwrites on each of the labels exactly how many cc are in that particular unit. The number is always very random (i.e.219, etc.) There are typically between 250&350cc per unit.

This question needs more information. 1 unit of blood can be a couple of different things. It could be whole blood or packed cells. I will assume whole blood is what is being asked. A unit of blood is never the same. It is approximately 450 ml's. So your answer would be simply 0.45 liters. As a nurse, I have hung hundreds of units of blood for patients and they are all different. We record the amount of volume in each bag when given to a patient. But typically blood given to patients is given in components. They are given either packed cells which are just the red cells to transport oxygen or they are given plasma for volume or platelets for clotting factors. Typically the blood is spun at the blood bank and separated out. Depending on the volume of packed cells spun off is how much is given to patients in the hospital.
It depends on the scenario, PRBC infusers can infuse 1 unit in 5 minutes in trauma settings with acute blood loss while people who have CHF and are at risk volume overload it can take as long as 2-3 or more hours to infuse 1 unit.
Yes, cells are the basic unit of all living things. WEithout cells every living thing would die because, the cells in our bodies produce blood. We all need blood to live.
Whole blood is divided into three parts: red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. So, there are essentially no platelets in a unit of blood. Those that are in a unit of blood are not functional as they have been stored in the refrigerator and are weeks old. Platelets need to be stored at room temperature and used within a week of collection.
white blood cells help ur body get rid of germs with vacinesCells are the small unit of life,without cells in living tissues there won't b existence
Red blood cells transport oxygen, white blood cells defend against disease, ... This way remaining red blood cells can still oxygenate body tissue. .... true that receiving a unit of transfused bloodin the US does not carry many risks, ...
