Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)

Twin-twin transfusion syndrome: a five year review. (1/42)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence, complications, management, and outcome in infants with twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) over a period of five years. METHODS: TTTS was diagnosed in monochorionic twins if one was pale and the other plethoric with a haemoglobin difference > or =5 g/100 ml and/or birthweight differences > or =15%. RESULTS: Eighteen (6.2%) of the 292 twin pairs had TTTS. Eight pairs (44%) had the acute type and the rest (56%) had the chronic type of TTTS. The mean (SEM) intrapair haemoglobin difference in the acute type was 4.8 (2.1) g/100 ml which gave a discordance of 7.1 (4.6)%, whereas that in the chronic type was 6.9 (2.9) g/100 ml and 24.4 (6.1)% respectively. Infants with the acute type had a significantly higher incidence of vaginal delivery (p<0.03), hypotension (p<0.025), and respiratory distress (p<0.01) compared with those with the chronic type. There was no significant difference in the incidence of anaemia, polycythaemia, asphyxia, hypoglycaemia, and hyperbilirubinaemia. Two recipients died in utero as the result of chronic TTTS, while their survivors developed spastic cerebral palsy. There were no neonatal deaths. CONCLUSIONS: TTTS, although uncommon, may have an adverse neurodevelopmental outcome especially if one twin dies in utero. Prompt recognition and management of the haemodynamic and haematological problems of infants with the acute types of TTTS will result in optimal neurodevelopmental outcome.  (+info)

Massive transplacental hemorrhage: clinical manifestations in the newborn. (2/42)

Thirteen newborn infants had transplacental hemorrhage in excess of 30 ml. Fetal blood in the maternal circulation was demonstrated in all cases by the acid elution technique. Anemia was noted in five babies either at birth or within the first 24 hours of life. One baby was stillborn, the death possibly being related to fetal hemorrhage. The other seven babies were clinically normal in spite of massive transplacental hemorrhage. The hemoglobin values and reticulocyte counts were normal at birth and the first 5 days of life. The data on this group of babies suggest that the clinical manifestations of transplacental hemorrhage are related not only to the size of the hemorrhage but also to the time at which the hemorrhage occurs.  (+info)

The role of high-dose oral iron supplementation during erythropoietin therapy for anemia of prematurity. (3/42)

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether a high intake of oral iron would increase the effect of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) on hemoglobin synthesis. METHODS: We studied 30 preterm infants (gestational age 29+/-1.8 weeks, birth weight 1161+/-200 g, at age of 28+/-10 days) who were randomly assigned to receive either 8 mg/kg per day (n=15) or 16 mg/kg per day of oral iron during a course of rHuEPO therapy (900 microg/kg per week) for a duration of 4 weeks. Both groups were comparable in regard to clinical and laboratory data at the time of enrollment. RESULTS: rHuEPO caused a significant increase in reticulocyte count in the low- and high-dose iron groups, 17.1+/-5.3 to 34.7+/-9.2 and 16.3+/-3.3 to 42.5+/-5.6 (10(9)/l), respectively (p<0.05). However, in both groups, hematocrit values remained stable at the end of the study as compared to baseline (0.35+/-0.03% vs. 0.30+/-0.03%, 0.35+/-0.05% vs. 0.30+/-0.03%, NS) and in both groups there was a comparable and significant decrease in ferritin level (259+/-109 to 101+/-40 and 168+/-54 to 69+/-38 microg/l, respectively; p<0.01). The rates of bloody stools without any evidence of necrotizing enterocolitis were not significantly different between the two treatment groups (1/15 vs. 4/15, NS). CONCLUSION: We conclude that a higher dose (16 mg/kg per day) of oral iron is not more beneficial when compared to a lower dose (8 mg/kg per day) during rHuEPO therapy for anemia of prematurity. Further studies will define the optimal dosage and route of administration of iron supplementation during rHuEPO therapy.  (+info)

Serum erythropoietin concentrations in symptomatic infants during the anaemia of prematurity. (5/42)

A comparison was carried out between a series of neonates who weighed less than 1500 g at birth and received red cell transfusions for symptomatic anaemia of prematurity (group 1, n = 14) and controls of similar gestational age and weight, who remained well and were not transfused during their nursery stay (group 2, n = 10). Mean (SD) haemoglobin concentrations at birth were 163 (12) g/l and 183 (17) g/l (p = 0.004), respectively. Transfusion resulted in significantly better weight gain in six infants who had been growing poorly:mean (SE) 8.8 (2.8) g/day improved to 23.3 (2.1) g/day (p less than 0.002). Geometric mean (SD) serum immunoreactive erythropoietin (SiEp) concentrations (17.7 (1.3) U/l) for the whole group of infants were similar to those of normal adults (17.4 (4.7) U/l) despite considerably reduced haemoglobin values. There was a significant inverse correlation between haemoglobin and log SiEp concentrations in the infants requiring transfusion (r = -0.43; p less than 0.01), but this was not apparent in the untransfused babies. Moreover, at haemoglobin concentrations below 120 g/l the mean (SE) SiEp concentration of 20 (1.08) U/l in group 1 was significantly higher than in group 2 (14 (1.06) U/l; p = 0.002). These data suggest that an increased concentration of SiEp early in the course of the anaemia of prematurity helps to identify those infants who would benefit from red cell transfusions, but that clinical criteria, although ill defined, do so equally well.  (+info)

The effects of anaemia as a programming agent in the fetal heart. (6/42)

The intrauterine environment plays a powerful role in determining the life-long risk of cardiovascular disease. A number of stressors are well known to affect the development of the cardiovascular system in utero including over/under maternal nutrition, excess glucocorticoid and chronic hypoxia. Chronic fetal anaemia in sheep is a complex stressor that alters cardiac loading conditions, causes hypoxic stress and stimulates large changes in flow to specific tissues, including large increases in resting coronary blood flow and conductance. Decreased viscosity can account for approximately half of the increased flow. It appears that immature hearts are 'plastic' in that increases in coronary conductance with fetal anaemia persist into adulthood even if the anaemia is corrected before birth. These large changes in conductance are possible only through extensive remodelling of the coronary tree. Adult hearts that were once anaemic in utero are more resistant to hypoxic stress as adults but it is not known whether such an adaptation would be deleterious in later life. These studies indicate the need for investigation into the basic mechanisms of coronary tree remodelling in the immature myocardium. New information on these mechanisms is likely to lead to better prevention of and therapies for adult-onset coronary disease.  (+info)

Reduction in red blood cell transfusions among preterm infants: results of a randomized trial with an in-line blood gas and chemistry monitor. (7/42)

BACKGROUND: Critically ill, extremely premature infants develop anemia because of intensive laboratory blood testing and undergo multiple red blood cell (RBC) transfusions in the early weeks of life. To date, researchers have had only limited success in finding ways to reduce transfusions significantly in this patient population. OBJECTIVE: To reduce RBC transfusions for these infants by using a point-of-care bedside monitor that returns analyzed blood to the patient. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: This was a prospective, 2-center, randomized, open, controlled, clinical trial with a 1:1 assignment of extremely low birth weight infants (weighing 500-1000 g at birth) to control or monitor groups and analysis with the intention-to-treat approach. Predefined RBC transfusion criteria were applied uniformly in the 2 groups. INTERVENTIONS: Clinical treatment of study subjects with an in-line, ex vivo, bedside monitor that withdraws blood through an umbilical artery catheter, analyzes blood gases and sodium, potassium, and hematocrit levels, and returns the sample to the patient. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The total volume and number of RBC transfusions during the first 2 weeks of life and the total volume of blood removed for laboratory testing. RESULTS: The trial was terminated prematurely when one center's NICU changed its standard method of laboratory testing. In the first 2 weeks of life, there was a nonsignificant 17% lower cumulative RBC transfusion volume in the monitor group (n = 46), compared with the control group (n = 47). However, data from the first week only (the period of greater catheter use) demonstrated a significant 33% lower cumulative RBC transfusion volume in the monitor group. Cumulative phlebotomy loss was approximately 25% less in the monitor group throughout the 2-week study period. There was no difference between groups in neonatal mortality, morbidity, and neurodevelopmental outcome rates at 18 to 24 months. This is the first randomized trial documenting that RBC transfusions administered to neonates can by reduced by decreasing laboratory phlebotomy loss. CONCLUSIONS: As long as an umbilical artery catheter is available for blood sampling with an in-line blood gas and chemistry monitor, significant reductions in neonatal RBC transfusions can be achieved. The patients most likely to benefit from monitor use are the smallest, most critically ill newborns.  (+info)

A randomized, controlled trial of the effects of adding vitamin B12 and folate to erythropoietin for the treatment of anemia of prematurity. (8/42)

BACKGROUND: Premature infants, especially those with birth weights of <1500 g, often suffer from anemia of prematurity and associated problems. Erythropoietin therapy is a safe effective way to prevent and to treat anemia of prematurity. We hypothesized that combined administration of vitamin B12 and folate with erythropoietin and iron would enhance erythropoietin-induced erythropoiesis. METHODS: In a randomized, controlled trial, 64 premature infants (birth weight: 801-1300 g) receiving erythropoietin and iron supplementation were assigned randomly to receive either vitamin B12 (3 microg/kg per day) and folate (100 microg/kg per day) (treatment group) or a lower dose of folate (60 microg/kg per day) (control group). RESULTS: During the 4-week observation period, vitamin B12 and folate enhanced erythropoietin-induced erythropoiesis significantly, as indicated by a 10% increase in red blood cell counts, compared with folate alone. Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels remained stable in the treatment group, whereas they decreased in the control group. Vitamin B12 levels in the treatment group increased over baseline and control values, whereas red blood cell folate levels were comparable between the groups. Subsequent analysis showed slight nonsignificant differences in baseline red blood cell count, hemoglobin level, hematocrit level, and mean corpuscular volume values, which must be addressed as a limitation. CONCLUSIONS: With the limitation of a slight imbalance in baseline data between the study groups, combined therapy with vitamin B12, folate, erythropoietin, and orally and intravenously administered iron seemed more effective in stimulating erythropoiesis among premature infants, compared with erythropoietin, iron, and low-dose folate alone. Additional trials are necessary to confirm these data.  (+info)

Looking for online definition of neonatal anemia in the Medical Dictionary? neonatal anemia explanation free. What is neonatal anemia? Meaning of neonatal anemia medical term. What does neonatal anemia mean?
Every year in the United States, 12 percent of babies are born prematurely. One of the most common medical problems for these infants is neonatal anemia -- a deficiency of oxygen-carrying red blood cells that leads to shortness of breath, inactivity and failure to thrive.. A team of University of Iowa researchers led by John Widness, M.D., professor of pediatrics in the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, has received a five-year, $8.7 million grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health to better understand, prevent and treat neonatal anemia. This award is the second renewal of the Program Project Grant for Neonatal Anemia: Pathophysiology and Treatment. For this third funding period, Widness takes over as principal investigator from Ronald Strauss, M.D., UI professor of pathology and pediatrics. Strauss and Widness, together with Edward Bell, M.D., UI professor of pediatrics, and Donald Mock, M.D., Ph.D., professor of ...

A novel mutant mouse called X-linked pre- and neonatal anemia (gene symbol, Xpna) results in a transient, neonatal anemia which is resolved by 3 weeks of age in Xpna females. Adult Xpna females exhibit hypoplastic bone marrow with red cell aplasia and splenomegaly showing extramedullary erythropoiesis and megakaryocytosis. We identified a splicing defect derived from a single nucleotide change 5 base pairs downstream of Exon 1 in Gata1. The Xpna Gata1 gene produces a transcript, which includes alternative Exon 1Eb/c, known not to induce erythropoiesis. X-chromosome inactivation leads to two populations of hematopoietic cells in Xpna females, one of which expresses Xpna Gata1 mRNA. An X-chromosome-associated erythroid genetic marker (Pgk1, phosphoglycerate kinase-1) indicates reticulocytes are derived from erythropoietic cells expressing the Xpna Gata1 transcript. These data strongly suggest compensatory gene expression allowing for the generation of erythrocytes despite the lack of GATA-1 ...

The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC.. The study population consisted of 382 term infants born after normal pregnancies and randomised to DCC or ECC after birth. The primary objective was iron stores and iron deficiency at 4 months of age, but the thesis was designed to investigate a wide range of suggested effects associated with cord clamping.. Paper I showed that DCC was associated with improved iron stores at 4 months (45% higher ferritin) and that the incidence of iron deficiency was reduced from 5.7% to 0.6%. Neonatal anaemia at 2-3 days was less frequent in the DCC group, 1.2% vs. 6.3%. There were no differences between the groups in respiratory symptoms, ...

Introduction:. HLA specific antibodies detection (HSA) and that of Donor Specific Antibodies (DSA) were revolutionized by the introduction of solid phase assays (Luminex®), therefore making these antibodies a powerful biomarker for humoral injuries to the allograft. Determinants of HSA development entail non-adherence to immunosuppressive drugs but also allosensitizing events such as red blood cell (RBC) transfusions. Recent works showed a higher incidence of DSA in transplanted patients following RBC transfusion events, but no specific data exist for AntiThymocyte Globulin (ATG) induction.. This work aims at assessing whether peri-transplant RBC transfusion resulted in post-transplant HLA sensitization, in the setting of ATG induction therapy.. Patients and methods:. All consecutive patients benefiting from a first ATG-induced kidney allograft between 2004 and 2014 at our center with no history of HLA immunization were included retrospectively, provided transfusion history and HSA history were ...

Results. There were 34 infants in each group. Both groups were similar in age, gender, cardiac defect type, ICU length of stay, and time interval to second stage or definitive repair. Shunt interventions (18 versus 32%, p=0.16), shunt thrombosis (14 versus 17%, p=0.74), and mortality (9 versus 12%, p=0.65) were not significantly different between groups. On multiple logistic regression analysis, single-ventricle morphology (odds ratio 5.2, 95% confidence interval of 1.2-23, p=0.03) and post-operative red blood cells transfusion ⩾24 hours [odds ratio 15, confidence interval of (3-71), p,0.01] were associated with shunt-related adverse events.

Now, there are a few reasons to take this with a grain of salt. First, its only one study. There may be problems with methodology or question wording or a dozen other things. Second, this is pretty much what we liberals would like to believe, isnt it? That should give us pause before we get too self-righteous over this. Third, the study was done using volunteers recruited via Mechanical Turk, and Ive had some pretty uncomplimentary things to say about MT before.. Still, its intriguing and certainly deserves some follow-up. I presume this result is related in some way to the fact that conservatives tend to have higher in-group loyalty than liberals, but thats just an armchair guess. Maybe further research could dig into that.. From a political point of view, I guess the big question this study raises is: What fires up liberals? We have a pretty good idea of what fires up conservatives, but what gets us lefties going?. ...
