After treatment, patients should be monitored for symptom resolution, Hgb concentration, and adverse effects.

INTRODUCTION

© Anemia is a reduction in the concentration of hemoglobin (Hgb) that results in a reduced oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. Some patients with anemia may be asymptomatic initially, but eventually, the lack of oxygen to the tissues could result in fatigue, lethargy, shortness of breath, headache, edema, and tachycardia. Common causes of anemia include blood loss, decreased production of red blood cells (RBCs), increased destruction of RBCs, or some combination of these factors. Determination of the underlying cause of anemia is essential for successful management. Appropriate treatment of anemia will result in an increase in Hgb, with a corresponding increase in oxygen-carrying capacity and reduction in symptoms.
