This decrease in TEC in the last trimester has been attributed to the hemodilution
effect because of an increased plasma volume (Guyton and Hall, 1996).
Surgeon A, who operated all 396 children (Group A) used retrograde autologous blood priming (RAP) of the pump circuit to reduce the impact of hemodilution
. Surgeon B, (Group B), who operated an equal number of 396 children, in contrast, practiced bloodless priming.

The mild hemodilution
does not have a high negative impact on the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, blood coagulation or in the heart, brain and kidneys, while allowing the collection of enough autologous blood; 3) When a large amount of blood needs to be collected, erythropoietin and iron are administered to promote the formation and maturation of erythrocytes in patients, preventing preoperative anemia.
The primary objective was to assess the accuracy of cPDE in predicting the hemodilution
responsiveness using the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve and gray zone approaches .
"Triple-H" (hypertension, hypervolemia, and hemodilution
) therapy and calcium channel blockers have been shown to improve treatment outcomes.
A modest overnight drop in hematocrit from 41% to 35% was noted, presumed to be partially related to hemodilution
caused by the IV fluids.

Various mechanisms have been proposed to explain the origin of anemia in trypanosomiasis, these include suppression of erythropoietic activity due to bone marrow depression, hemodilution
, hemolysis resulting from immunological factors, direct parasite action and the products released by parasites.
A negative correlation between air temperature, PCV, number of RBCs and HB concentration was reported , while in the present study a negative relationship was also noted between these hematological constituents and THI, which can be attributed to the hemodilution
due to right-sided heart failure, although not true anemia, is associated with adverse outcomes.
