    Describe the diagnostic significance of identifying schistocytes within clinical specimens.

    I have no idea how to structure this essay, I just have a lot of information but I have no clue about how to lay it out. I'm finding it difficult to start this essay as I don't really know what I should include in the introduction.

    PLS HELP!!!!!!

    Thanks

    So, typically you would start an essay by introducing what you're going to write about, it shouldn't be very long (a couple of sentences). Maybe write something such as "Schistocytes are red blood cell fragments due to intravascular red blood cell destruction as a result of a number of conditions. In this essay I will discuss the significance of finding schistocytes in a blood smear in diagnosing these conditions."

    You would then obviously go on to talk about schistocytes, such as how they form, and then go on to talk about the conditions that form schistocytes (DIC and microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia) and then maybe talk about how useful a blood smear is in diagnosing these conditions and how useful a smear is compared to a FBC or a good medical history. Then conclude.
