A MCH and MCV blood test are tests that measure the levels of two different components of red blood cells in a person's blood: mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV). MCH is a measure of the amount of hemoglobin in a red blood cell, and MCV is a measure of the size of a red blood cell. These tests can provide important information about a person's overall health and can help detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection, and leukemia. A MCH and MCV blood test is often ordered as part of a routine medical examination or when a person is experiencing certain symptoms, such as fatigue or shortness of breath.
