Anemia at Discharge From the PICU: A Bicenter Descriptive Study

Conclusions: Anemia is frequent after pediatric critical illness. Anemia status at PICU admission defines different subgroups of critically ill children with specific prevalence and risk markers of anemia at PICU discharge. Further studies are required to confirm our results, to better define anemia during pediatric critical illness, and to highlight the causes of post-PICU stay anemia, its course, and its association with post-PICU outcomes.

Abstract Objective: The blood of cancer patients is in a state of hypercoagulability, easily leading to thrombosis. Anemia is also a complication of tumors. Anemia and thrombosis affect the treatment of tumor patients. Methods: Ginsenosides Rb were extracted from the stems and leaves of American ginseng using water-saturated ethanol and ethyl acetate in silica gel column. Tumor mice model was established by injecting H22 hepatocellular carcinoma cells into the axilla of mice. Mice were randomly divided into 6 groups: normal control group, model control group, positive control group, low dose group (7 mg/kg), ...
