only type of microcytic anaemia with increased reticulocyte count

3 gene deletion alpha thalassemia

2

only type of microcytic anaemia with increased reticulocyte count

3 gene deletion alpha thalassemia

3

new fact about sideroblastic anemia

it causes BOTH micro and MACROcytic anaemia

4

when to transfuse in anaemia

1. symptomatic
2. Hct very low
- elderly
- heart disease

5

Hct very low

6

what transfusion to use in person with IgA deficiency

give IgA deficient FFP

7

each unit of PRBC....

increases Hct by 3 points per unit, or 1g/dl of Hg

8

what is NOT the answer to haemophilia A or B

FFP

9

cryoprecipitate....

NEVER used first for anything

10

whole blood....

NEVER correct, since divided into PRBC or FFP

11

transfuse in asymptomatic young person with anaemia

NO NEED TO TRANSFUSE

12

levels of hepcidin in anaemia of chronic disease

LOW levels

13

PC= asymptomatic anaemia with NORMAL Fe studies

thalassemia

thalassemia

15

ferritin in Fe deficiency anaemia

= LOW;
but......1 out of 3 patients: normal or increased
