Critically ill patients frequently develop anemia due to several factors. Iron-withholding mechanisms caused by inflammation contribute to this anemia. The iron metabolism imbalances described or reported in all intensive care studies are similar to the values observed in anemia of inflammation. The administration of iron could be useful in the optimization of recombinant human erythropoietin activity, but this could be at the expense of bacterial proliferation. Since there is a lack of… CONTINUE READING
