Background and Objective: One of the health indices in human is normality of the number and size of blood cells. The purpose of this study was to screen for bleeding and coagulation disorders among the patients in oral medicine department of Yazd dental school.
Methods: This descriptive - analytic study was performed on 273 patients referred to the oral medicine department of dental school in Yazd, Iran during 2015-16. Data of age, sex, systemic diseases and their type, medical history, patient’s clinical examinations and also the cause and type of requested laboratory tests were recorded for each sujects.
Results: Bleeding and coagulation lab tests were ordered for 63 persons (23.4%) and complete blood count (CBC) for 210 persons (76.9%). The CBC of most patients with systemic diseases (53 cases, 25.2%) was normal. The most frequent systemic disorders were cardiovascular diseases (56%) and followed by bleeding disorders (19%). The most frequent abnormality of CBC components was seen in the distribution of neutrophils (84.9%). There was no significant correlation between CBC results and its components and also PT, BT and PTT with the age of the patients. Platelet counts, Hb and INR results showed a significant correlation with the age of the patients (in age range of 6-83 years) (P<0.05). Platelet counts, WBC, PT, lymphocyte, neutrophil and RBC, Hb, MCV and MCH results were significantly different between females than males (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The majority of bleeding and coagulation labratory test results of patients were normal, which can indicate the readiness of the patients to tolerate dental treatments. The results of this study help to reduce the unnecessary laboratory test orders and patient costs with a thorough medical history and careful consideration of clinical findings.
