About Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) Test

Why is the Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) Test done?

The mean platelet volume test is prescribed when the person shows signs and symptoms related to having bleeding disorders. Platelets or thrombocytes help with blood clotting. Abnormal levels of platelets, be it higher or lower than the normal range, can lead to various complications and can even be life-threatening.

When there are too few platelets in the blood, it is known as thrombocytopenia. This is an indication that the bone marrow may not be producing enough platelets or that the body is destroying the platelets sooner than required and the symptoms/signs are:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Nosebleeds
  • Gum bleeds
  • Heavy bleeding during
  • menstruation
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Petechiae or rash-like
  • dots seen on legs
  • Purpura or bruising easily

When there are too many platelets in the blood, it is known as thrombocytosis. this can be either due to an infection or medical condition (cancer or anemia) and shows the following signs and symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Formation of bruises and clots without injury
  • Bleeding in the GI tract
What does the Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) Test measure?

The mpv blood test in Bangalore measures the amount of platelets in a specific amount of blood taken from the person. This test is also used to diagnose for blood disorders like leukemia or to monitor treatment for conditions like autoimmune disorders that are prescribed to help keep the platelet count within the normal range.

As platelets play a vital role in regulating the bleeding during an injury, having too few platelets can lead to death due to excessive bleeding. On the other hand, having too many platelets can lead to blockage of the blood vessels that lead to death due to heart failure. Usually, mean platelet volume is prescribed along with complete blood count tests. This test is also conducted prior to the prescription of a bone marrow biopsy.
