Summary:

Although not a disease in its own right, anemia is a commonly experienced symptom of a deeper underlying problem that can interfere with a patient’s strength, endurance and well-being. Anemia affects more than one-third of the world’s population, and is present when there is an inadequate number of healthy red blood cells and/or an abnormally low amount of hemoglobin in the body. Physical therapists must understand the different types of anemia and how they may affect a patient’s ability to participate successfully in rehabilitative care and to achieve and maintain functional independence.

Objectives:

The goal of this anemia continuing education program is to help physical therapists identify the etiology, presentation, consequences and interventions associated with commonly found types of anemia. After reading this module, you will be able to:
  • Describe the etiology of anemia, and discuss the different types
  • Explain typical laboratory blood work findings associated with commonly found types of anemia
  • List medical treatments typically associated with anemia
