Please explain why is it that the rbc, hemoglobin and hematocrit level of a patient with congenital heart disease is decreased?

Please explain why is it that the rbc, hemoglobin and hematocrit level of a patient with congenital heart disease is decreased?

Nutrition: The most common reason that hemoglobin and hematocrit are decreased is iron deficiency. In most cases, this is due to either inadequate nutrition (low iron intake) or blood loss (including frequent blood sampling.) neither of these reasons is truly caused by the heart defect, but children with congenital heart disease are at increased risk for either problem. ...Read more

Would a splenic infarct still be affecting a CBC after 7 months? Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated.

Would a splenic infarct still be affecting a CBC after 7 months? Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated.

More info needed: A splenic infarct, by itself, shouldn't have all those affects. If your spleen is hyperactive you can have low counts, and if it is big and making extra cells (ie: extracellular hematopoesis) which is found in certain hematologic conditions, you may have elevated cells. What is reaon for splenic infarct? ...Read more

Splenic infarct due to blood clot for unknown reason. Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated. Normal?

No not normal: You are lucky that you developed blood clot in a non essential organ. If this were your heart or brain where blood clot formed or travelled, it could have been life-threatening or at least severe impairment would have resulted. See a blood specialist, hematologist, for an opinion whether you should be on anticoagulation. ...Read more

What does it mean if CBC consistently shows low RBC but normal hematocrit and hemoglobin?

What does it mean if CBC consistently shows low RBC but normal hematocrit and hemoglobin?

Not much: If blood contains normal amount of hemoglobin, it will carry oxygen to tissues and CO2 to lungs normally. If red cells are a little larger than normal, number of red cells ("RBC") could be slightly low. You could have macrocytosis (large cells) without disease, but might want MD to rule out some causes of it (low B12, low thyroid, increased reticulocytes, and others) just to be sure. ...Read more
