  • erythropoietin
  • A hormone called erythropoietin stimulates the production of red blood cells from the bone marrow. (europa.eu)
  • In these cases, erythropoietin is used to replace the missing hormone or to increase red-blood-cell counts. (europa.eu)
  • Erythropoietin is also used before surgery to increase the number of red blood cells to help patients produce more blood for self-donation. (europa.eu)
  • The active substance in Retacrit, epoetin zeta, is a copy of human erythropoietin and works in exactly the same way as the natural hormone to stimulate red blood cell production. (europa.eu)
  • The aetiology of anaemia in critical illness relates to haemodilution, bleeding, blood sampling, increased haemolysis, nutritional deficiencies, blunted erythropoietin production, abnormalities in iron metabolism, etc. (1, 2) The ability to develop compensatory mechanisms that would assure metabolic needs, will determine the tolerance of anaemia in each patient.

  • Jehovah's Witnesses' literature teaches that their refusal of transfusions of whole blood or its four primary components-red cells, white cells, platelets and plasma-is a non-negotiable religious stand and that those who respect life as a gift from God do not try to sustain life by taking in blood, even in an emergency. (wikipedia.org)
  • We will break down each of these components in some detail below as well as look at various medical procedures and blood transfusions currently approved by the Watchtower for Jehovah's Witnesses. (ajwrb.org)
  • They are the smallest of the blood components, amounting to far less than 1% of blood volume, yet they remain banned. (ajwrb.org)
  • Many Witnesses are puzzled as to why some larger blood components are permitted and some smaller ones are forbidden. (ajwrb.org)
  • 4 Other important aspects include shortage of units of allogeneic blood components and high costs. (asahq.org)
  • The issue whether this technique effectively helps to reduce the need for allogeneic blood components and postoperative bleeding is far from being settled. (asahq.org)

  • We know from testimonies given by athletes that autologous transfusions are the most effective way of increasing red blood cells, and therefore oxygen capacity, in an athlete's blood stream. (selectscience.net)
  • 7 Following blood transfusion, older red blood cells are absorbed by macrophages where the hemoglobin iron is recycled and released into the circulation. (haematologica.org)
  • Blood, one unit, was leukodepleted and stored as approximately 250 ml of packed red cells at 4°C for 21 days. (haematologica.org)
  • There are five different leukocytes or white cells that can be found in the blood stream. (ajwrb.org)
  • Also referred to as "thrombocytes", they are specialized blood cells responsible for stopping bleeding. (ajwrb.org)
