General blood test in children: decoding and norms

Complete blood count (KLA) or “clinical” – a popular technique for laboratory diagnostics in pediatrics. It helps a specialist to assess the health of the child and identify violations if they are present. Therefore, KLA is prescribed for children with various diseases in order to find the root cause of the problem and choose a rational treatment. For example, if the disease is caused by a viral infection, then appropriate treatment is required, and not antibacterial. This analysis is able to indicate the nature of the disease. The results of a general blood test can be affected by a number of factors, which we will discuss below.

Color blindness – types, interesting facts and a diagnostic test with pictures

Color blindness is a violation of the color perception of vision. Simply put, color blind is a person who does not distinguish between certain colors or shades.

In the article we will deal with the features, causes and correction of color blindness. You can pass a special test for the perception of colors, with which a deviation is detected.

The concept of “color blindness” came about thanks to John Dalton, an English physicist and chemist who himself learned about his color perception disorder as an adult at age 26. This happened due to his passion for botany. When studying a flower, he noticed that in daylight, the plant seemed sky blue to him, and in the evening with a candle, the flower turned dark red. Such a metamorphosis was not noticed by anyone around, except the scientist’s brother. Then Dalton began to realize that his vision was not in order and this phenomenon was hereditary.
