Red Cell Deformability and Serum Magnesium Level in Non-pregnant and Normal Pregnant Women

By Ei Ei Pan Nu Yi, Ohnmar Myint Thein, Myat Thandar and Ohnmar


The study was carried out to determine red cell deformability (RCD) and serum magnesium (Mg2+) level in normal pregnancy, in comparison with non-pregnant subjects and to find out relationship between these two parameters in different gestational ages of normal pregnancy. This cross-sectional study was carried out in non-pregnant women (n=25) and 1st, 2nd, 3rd trimesters of normal pregnant women (n=15, 30 and 30, respectively). The RCD was determined by whole blood filtration method and serum Mg2+ level by colourimetric test with Chlorophosphonazo III method. The RCD was expressed as the flow rate (ml/min) as well as red cell deformability index (RCDI).</p
