Age, gender, history of pulmonary hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, angina, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and preoperative Hct level were not found to have any statistically significant association with elevated TI24 post-surgery.
TBL (ml) = Preoperative blood volume x (preoperative HCT level - postoperative HCT level).
These conditions can usually be distinguished by in vitro assays of erythroid progenitor cells, quantitation of serum EPO levels, and detection of somatic JAK2V617F mutations.1 Polycythemia is usually characterized by a HCT level of [greater than or equal to] 0.49 in males and [greater than or equal to] 0.48 in females.
[17] found IV TXA (20mg/kg) effectively reduced Hb and Hct level changes and hospital stays after TSA and RTSA.
The application of RAP in pediatric CPB can reduce priming volume, and keep a high Hct level during trans-instrument process (9).
(6-8) Some HCT level differences were attributed to higher HCT levels in wild birds compared with captive conspecifics.
They documented a strong, graded relationship between HCT level and the risk of developing heart failure in 3,523 Framingham participants aged 50-65 years who were free of a history of heart failure at baseline and were followed prospectively for up to 20 years.

The Hct level <39% was found in 53 males (25.6%) and <36% found in 71 (34.2%) females.
The postoperative Hct level was significantly higher in the intraoperative-transfusion group than in the no-transfusion and phlebotomy/autologous-transfusion groups on POD 1-4 [Figure 2]d.
The authors found that, once patients were maintained at the higher Hct level, there were significant improvements in well-being (P = 0.004), psychological affect (P = 0.003), and life satisfaction (P = 0.017).
In the phase 3 trial conducted by Eschbach, Abdulhadi, & Browne (1989), the median Epoetin alfa dose required to maintain a Hct level of 35% [+ or -] 3% in hemodialysis patients was 75 Units/kg of body weight three times a week (TIW).
