*Another procedure expected to gain lucrative share is erythrocytapheresis
. The procedure also finds application in blood donation procedures where it is widely used for separating two units of blood, known as double red cell apheresis.
There are studies indicating that erythrocyte exchange (erythrocytapheresis) can be a treatment modality for managing severe malaria patients.
Two case reports of successful therapeutic erythrocytapheresis as an adjunctive therapy in severe falciparum malaria.
In these cases erythrocytapheresis would be more suitable because it could be performed safely under isovolemia [2, 9].

The clinical improvement in SCA following the induction of iron deficient erythropoiesis by repeated phlebotomies or by erythrocytapheresis
has been reported (Koduri, et al., 2003).
