The total White Cell Count is not nearly as important as the individual Absolute count. The differential count takes each kind of blood cell such as lymphocyte, neutrophil, esosinophil, monocyte and basophils and gives an absolute number for each and a percentage of the total count which is very important to know how they are functioning. The most important numbers in relation to opportunistic infections and bacterial infections is the neutrophil. When they drop below 500 you usually get hospitalized in order to provide additional medical care.
