ABSTRACT
This article focuses on left ventricular filling pressures after rapid blood transfusion in cases of chronic severe anemia. Whereas circulatory dynamics in chronic severe anemia (CSA) have been extensively studied, there are only a few reports on alterations in hemodynamics after blood transfusion in such cases. CSA is a fairly common condition in the underdeveloped countries, and in many such cases, by the time treatment is sought, anemia becomes so severe that blood transfusion becomes not only essential but perhaps the only life-saving measure. The study comprised 15 adults suffering from CSA without evidence of any systemic disease. The investigations included estimation of hemoglobin, total and differential white cell count, ESR, serum proteins, a detailed study of peripheral blood film, urine and stool examination, a chest skiagram, and a 12-lead electrocardiogram. Cardiac catheterization studies were done using Swan-Ganz monitoring catheters.
