Mean values (Mean [+ or -] sd) of Hgb, Hct, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RBC, RDW, WBC, Plt, iron, TIBC, ferritin, and TSAT
according to sex are given in Table 1.
Transferrin was measured by the Nitro-so-PSAP test, and TSAT
was calculated as serum iron-TIBC.
If the patient has anemia and is not receiving iron or ESA therapy, consider a trial of IV iron if 1) an increase in Hgb concentration without starting ESA treatment is desired; and 2) TSAT
is 30% or less, and ferritin is 500 ng/mL or less.
Absolute iron deficiency (AID) (ferritin less than 150 ng/ ml and TSAT
less than 20%), was observed in 1 (5%); 3 (15%), 4 (20%) and 5 (25%) in patients groups I, II, IV and V, respectively.
Iron Give a 1-3 month trial of Administer iron to indices oral iron if TSAT
is [less maintain TSAT
>20% than or equal to]30% and and ferritin >100 ferritin is [less than or [micro]g/L.
The military's newest satcom constellation, the WGS, is regarded as a temporary filler for TSAT
Both conditions have similar anemia profiles, with a serum ferritin >100 ng/mL and a TSAT
WIN-T Increment 4 will provide these capabilities as the TSAT
constellation is brought on line.
Furthermore, the low TSAT
in ACD is a reflection of the decreased levels of serum iron.
Electrolyte, hemoglobin and serum TSAT
and ferritin levels were also determined.
However, the selection of TSAT
as a research topic and completion of this study was not possible without the help of Lt Col James Rothenflue.
