In 44 episodes of acute chest syndrome of sickle cell disease occurring in 37 children, simple clinical severity score, duration of hospital stay, transfusion data, and alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient were analyzed as indicators of severity of disease. The alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient, measured during breathing of room air, proved, on multivariate… CONTINUE READING
