Definition of Anemia
Deficiency in the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood due to a diminished erythrocyte mass.
May be due to:
Erythrocyte loss (bleeding)
Decreased Erythrocyte production
Decreased marrow response to erythropoietin
Increased Erythrocyte destruction (hemolysis)
Measurements of Anemia
? Hemoglobin = grams of hemoglobin per 100 mL of whole blood (g/dL)
? Hematocrit = percent of a sample of whole blood occupied by intact red blood cells
? RBC = millions of red blood cells per microL of whole blood
? MCV = Mean corpuscular volume
? RDW = Red blood cell distribution width
Symptoms of Anemia
- Exertional dyspnea
- Dyspnea at rest
- Bounding pulses
- Lethargy, confusion
- Muscle cramps
- Postural dizziness
RBC Life Cycle
In the bone marrow, erythropoietin enhances the growth of differentiation of burst forming units-erythroid (BFU-E) and colony forming units-erythroid (CFU-E) into reticulocytes.
Reticulocyte spends three days maturing in the marrow, and then one day maturing in the peripheral blood.
A mature Red Blood Cell circulates in the peripheral blood for 100 to 120 days.
Under steady state conditions, the rate of RBC production equals the rate of RBC loss.
