Association of Low Hemoglobin with Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism in Acutely Ill Hospitalized Medical Patients: an APEX Trial Substudy.

08:00 EDT 13th April 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Association of Low Hemoglobin with Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism in Acutely Ill Hospitalized Medical Patients: an APEX Trial Substudy."

Anemia is a common finding and independent predictor for adverse outcomes in hospitalized patients with medical illness. It remains unclear whether anemia is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism and whether the presence of anemia can refine risk assessment for prediction of venous thromboembolism, thereby adding incremental utility to a validated model.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.

Adolescent hospitalized for short term care.

Child hospitalized for short term care.

Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
