Case Study: Blood Transfusions and Women Health - A Big Concern ?Good Female Health-Better Nation's Health?
Abstract: The only indication for the transfusion of blood (red blood cells) is to correct or prevent tissue hypoxia, thus, the parameter like PO2, Hb value, HCT % are done to make decisions for transfusions. The indication for and the degree of urgency of Blood/packed red blood cell transfusions cannot, however, be defined only on the basis of the values of Hb or the Hct, but must be based on a complete evaluation of the patients clinical condition (age, signs & symptoms of anemia, speed of blood loss, volume of blood loss, cardiac function, lung function, ischemic heart disease, pharmacological treatments) and the possible presence of mechanisms compensating for the anemia. Females are more vulnerable to these mentioned issues despite being cared and framed under several govt women empowerment schemes.150 patients of all age group clinically diagnosed for blood transfusions were studied during my study. Blood/Red blood cell transfusions given to the studied patients reveal a different story regarding the poor health conditions of the female group in Kashmir.
