The concentrations of some haematologic and blood chemical constitu-ents were determined in 7 adult ostrich (Struthio camelus). The mean values are as follows: haemoglubin (83.4 4.3%), packed cell volume (43.6 3.7%), red blood cell count (18.16 9.2× 106), erthrocyte sedmntation rate (2.1 0.8mm/h), glucose (206 17 mg/dl), total protein (3.46 0.6 g/dl), albumin (1.9 0.3g/dl), creatinine (0.4 0.06 mg/dl), uric acid (6.3 1.1 mg/dl), inorganic phosphate (5.8 0.2 mg/dl), sodium (342.0 42.1 mg/dl), potassium (12.13 1.2 mg/dl), magnesium (2.16 0.36 mg/dl) and copper (1.2 0.22 mg/dl).
في هذه الدراسة تم قياس بعض مكونات الدم ومكوناته الكيميائية لعدد سبعة طيور من النعام البالغ. وكان متوسط خضاب الدم 83.4 4.3%، وحجم خلايا الدم المرصوصة 43.6 3.7%، وعدد كريات الدم الحمراء 18.16 9.2 × 10 ، ومعدل ترسيب الدم 2.1 0.8 mm/h وتركيز الجلكوز في الدم 206.0 17 mg/dL والبروتين الكلي 3.46 0.6 g/dL والألبيومين 1.9 0.3 g/dL، والكرياتنين 0.4 0.06 mg/dL، وحمض اليوريك 6.3 1.1mg/dL، والفسفور غير العضوي 5.8 0.2 mg/dL والصوديوم 342.01 42.1 mg/dL، والبوتاسيوم 12.13 1.2 mg/dL والماغنسيوم 2.16 .036 mg/dL والنحاس 1.2 0.22 mg/dL.
