...Anaemia The human body is structured in such a way that oxygen is transported and supplied to various parts by the red blood cells. Oxygen is required in the entire body to generate and produce energy. The red blood cells, therefore, transport oxygen to the whole body for this activity. Within the red blood cells is a protein component known as haemoglobin which carries oxygen as it is transported. According to Steinberg (2009:104), sickle cell anaemia arises when a person has abnormal haemoglobin leading to a halt in proper oxygen transportation. It is characterised by the presence of an atypical haemoglobin type S which is rigid, fragile and crescent-like cells that easily die off... Sickle Cell...

...anaemia which is one kind of red blood condition... Sub Department Transport 1 The main difference between Pulmonary and Systematic Circulation is that Pulmonary Circulation is the portion of the cardiovascular system that is tasked with the transportation of de-oxygenated blood from the heart and onto the lungs and back to the heart for it to pump the oxygenated blood to the other parts of the body. On the other hand Systematic Circulation can be described as the portion of the cardiovascular system that is tasked with the transportation of blood from the heart and onto the other parts of the body, in addition to returning deoxygenated blood back to the heart (Manjunatha, 2012). 1.2 The heart is a criti...

...anaemia. The renal dysfunction could be from severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalance secondary to septic shock. Blood urea is an indicator of renal function. Increased urea concentration exhibited by the patient (10mmol/L) is due to enhanced protein metabolism, a normal reaction of trauma injury, stress, haemorrhage in the gastrointestinal tract, and sepsis (RNCeus 2006). Creatinine clearance is a test that gives an estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and is a good indicator of renal function. Increased blood urea nitrogen and creatinine levels support the diagnosis of septic shock (Health Diseases 2008). (2) Plasma Bilirubin Plasma bilirubin...

...anaemia is the most common. It is an inherited disorder of blood and hence it is not contagious. Sickle cell disease is a gene-related disorder so it tends to run in families and those who do not carry the genotype of the disease, are at no risk of getting it ever in life. The diseased individuals inherit the genes from their affected parents and pass it on to their offspring. In sickle cell disease, abnormal haemoglobin S replaces the normal haemoglobin A due to alterations in the genes. The function of haemoglobin is to transport oxygen and deliver it to the different organs... and cells of the human body. Due to the abnormal haemoglobin formation, this oxygen delivery is affected. The red...
