erythrokinetics

erythrokinetics

 [ĕ-rith″ro-ki-net´iks]
the kinetics of erythrocytes, described by laboratory measurements of total red cell volume, rate of red cell production, and red cell life-span (rate of destruction).

e·ryth·ro·ki·net·ics

(ĕ-rith'rō-ki-net'iks),
A consideration of the kinetics of erythrocytes from their generation to destruction; erythrokinetic studies are sometimes made in cases of anemia to evaluate the balance between erythrocyte production and destruction.

Although erythrokinetics is a complex physiologic process that is affected by many factors, it can be simplified by focusing on the differences between the daily production of RBCs and their death rate.
Erythrokinetic Effect of Modifying Versus Holding Epoetin Alfa Doses
The erythrokinetic model illustrates why it is generally preferable to reduce rather than hold epoetin alfa doses.
The erythrokinetic effect of holding and restarting epoetin alfa doses can create a ping-pong effect on RBC production and death rates and on Hb levels (see Figure 2).
