Not per se: COPD may cause an elevation of hemoglobin level but should alter the red cell indices. How low is the MCH? Having the actual value would have helped. An isolated laboratory result is insufficient to provide a meaningful opinion.

NO: Cannot confront this question without perspective. What are all the other RBC values?
