UNDERSTANDING THE ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATE (ESR)
Very few medical students have a firm grasp on exactly what the ESR test is, and more importantly what the results mean and how they are interpreted. This is one of those tests that when you understand it completely you don’t have to memorize; as it makes 100% sense.
Here is a short video explanation from my 80-day Step 1 Skype course that I made for a student to help him better understand the erythrocyte sedimentation rate – I believe it can help clarify things for you as well.
