What Is considered critical platelet count?

Q:

What Is considered critical platelet count?

A:

The normal platelet level ranges between 150,000 and 450,000 per μl (micro liter) of blood.

When the platelet level falls below 50,000 per μl it’s considered critical, skin and mucous membrane bleeding will occur. When the platelet level falls below 20,000 per μl it’s considered life-threatening, spontaneous bleeding will occur. When the platelet level sinks below 10,000 per μl it’s highly dangerous. 

When the platelet level rises to 1,000,000 per μl and more it’s also critical. The rise of platelet level increases the risk of blood clot.
