Definition of White blood cell count

hurm..this definition i get from this website...and it says..
"White blood cell count (leukocyte count): The number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. The WBC is usually measured as part of the CBC (complete blood count). White blood cells are the infection-fighting cells in the blood and are distinct from the red (oxygen-carrying) blood cells known as erythrocytes. There are different types of white blood cells, including neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes; PMNs), band cells (slightly immature neutrophils), T-type lymphocytes (T cells), B-type lymphocytes (B cells), monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils. All the types of white blood cells are reflected in the white blood cell count. The normal range for the white blood cell count varies between laboratories but is usually between 4,300 and 10,800 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. This can also be referred to as the leukocyte count and can be expressed in international units as 4.3 - 10.8 x 109 cells per liter." tak sihat semlm..ekceli bukan semlm je..dah a week...asik makan panadol je bila badan mula rasa panas...demam..pening kepala..and sakit perut memulas mcm nak pecah after work balik rumah baring je tahan sakit...and at night p hospital selayang..[ kali ni kena p kinik kerajaan...used the govt facilities la pulak after 12 tahun dok bayar income tax kekekekeke...]
