These data, although scarce, revalidated the limitation on the approach to a patient with erythrocytosis in the eritrocitosos room, as well as the absence of protocols that clarify the possible indications and phlebotomy techniques. Regarding red blood cell parameters, a tendency to have a protective effect when located in the core values of hematocrit against extreme values, this difference did not show a statistical significance.

The effects of therapeutic decrease in packed cell volume on the responses eritgocitosis exercise of patients with polycythaemia secondary to lung disease. In the event that the patient underwent phlebotomy, blood count values at admission and the last blood count obtained after the last blood collection were taken for comparison.

These information handling procedures were verified, each and in full, ensuring that no inconsistencies or missing data were found. The multivariate analysis did not include erythrocyte parameters given the lack of statistical significance of the data provided by these variables with the outcome.

The variables that were statistically significant showed some unusual associations, particularly with the Anthonisen classification and the presence of a history of heart failure, the latter being a protective factor, without defining a coherent explanation for this finding and without any publication report with a similar result that could be used to infer that protective effect.

Demographic, clinical and paraclinical characteristics of patients included in the study. N Engl J Med ; Losartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist, lowers hematocrit in posttransplant erythrocytosis. The qualitative variables were reported as absolute and relative frequencies. Rheological influences on thrombosis.


Only three of the patients underwent phlebotomy, and its indication included the hematocrit value in all cases, regardless of the clinical presentation. In long-term observations, anemia has been identified as a factor involved in the development of adverse events in patients with stable chronic lung disease, whereas erythrocytosis has shown its inference on a better prognosis Effects on pulmonary hemodynamics, gas exchange, and exercise capacity.

Morbidity and mortality in pseudopolycythaemia. Studies that include phlebotomy in the prognosis of exacerbation should also evaluate the proper adherence to treatment, including supplemental oxygen as a primary factor to prevent recurrence of erythrocytosis. Complications during hospital stay. The definition of chronic lung disease that was coined sought to be sensible, considering that few patients have pulmonary physiology studies and that some of those who actually had them were not available at the time of the survey or follow-up.

Different variables have been decisive for the prognosis of exacerbations; however, despite the pathophysiological correlation between chronic lung diseases with hypoxemia and erythrocytosis development, red blood cell parameters have not been evaluated as predictors of these events 2,5. Demographic, clinical and paraclinical variables supported in the literature were included. None of these patients presented any of the outcomes assessed at 30 days.

Funding None stated by the authors. Regarding the outcomes, there was a predilection to higher length hospital stay in the presence of lower levels of hematocrit. Am J Med ; Discussion This study attempted to establish eritrocitosus relationship between red blood cell parameters and the development of adverse outcomes at 30 days in patients with exacerbated chronic lung disease.

Introduction Chronic lung diseases are common and their exacerbations are the main cause of consultation in the emergency department since they impair the quality of life of patients In order to determine the normality assumption, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was trayamiento for univariate analysis of quantitative variables.

The frequency of anemia was 7.


While the minority of patients had a severe functional class IVthe use of long-acting bronchodilators was limited to erifrocitosis five cases, compared with the more extensive use of methylxanthines.

Diabetes mellitus type 2.

The presence of comorbidity was high, especially in women; among them, hypertension was the most prevalent comorbidity, followed by heart failure and diabetes mellitus type 2. Mortality and mortality-related factors after hospitalization for acute exacerbation of COPD.

History of diabetes mellitus type 2. Outcome measures The outcome variable was a composite between death, length of hospital stay in floors, need for invasive or non-invasive ventilatory support, need to transfer to ICU and rehospitalization, provided that they were associated with chronic lung disease.

Asthma cases eritrocitoais an exclusive distribution in women. Results Between March and Octobera cohort of patients was selected, out of which met the inclusion and follow-up criteria proposed for the study.

Patients with congenital heart disease, for whom diagnosis of exacerbation of lung disease was discarded at discharge, and those who did not wish to participate tratajiento the study were excluded from the study. No relationship between a history of use of home oxygen and hematocrit values was found. Adults with cyanotic congenital heart disease: Erythrocyte parameters showed an overall predilection of being within normal values, with a median of Demographic and clinical data were eritroccitosis directly from patients or their relatives, and were verified using the medical records, from where information about paraclinical was also extracted.

Patients over 18 years of age, with a history of chronic lung disease, hypoxemia at admission and diagnostic impression of exacerbation of, infectious or non-infectious, chronic lung disease were selected. Hematocrit and the risk of cardiovascular disease—the Framingham study: Polycythaemia due to hypoxaemia:
