General characteristics of anemia. Classification

Anemia (anemia) is a condition characterized by a decrease in the total volume of erythrone, occurring with a decrease in the unit of blood volume of the number of erythrocytes and (or) Hb, often accompanied by their qualitative changes. This is in most cases a syndrome that develops in various diseases, sometimes being the main, central manifestation of the disease.

True anemias are oligocythemic hypo- or normolemias, characterized by a decrease in hematocrit. They should be distinguished from false anemia, related to oligocythemic hypervolemia, which also occur with low hematocrit and are the result of overhydration and hemodilution (dilution of blood).

With anemia, the main function of erythrocytes suffers - the transport of oxygen to the tissues of the body, which causes a disturbance of oxidative processes and the development of hypoxia. Hypoxia most of all affects the functions of the central nervous system and the heart: fatigue, weakness, dizziness quickly occur, memory deteriorates and myocardial dystrophy develops.
The development of hypoxia is affected by the degree of anemia and the speed of its development, as well as the degree and speed of adaptation of the organism to the changed conditions of existence. The latter is achieved by the inclusion of compensatory mechanisms aimed at ensuring the physiological needs of tissues for oxygen. Nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, hemic and tissue compensatory adaptations are included in the fight against the anemic state.

There are many classifications of anemia based on different principles. The classification according to the pathogenetic principle (Table 3) is widely used.

General characteristics of anemia. Classification

  1. General characteristics of existing classifications
    The classification of infectious diseases is intended to be grouped together on the basis of a common, significant feature. This is done in order to better find a common, for these diseases in matters of diagnosis, prevention, clarification of their causes, nature of spread, etc. In addition, a grouping of infectious diseases is required that would allow
  2. General characteristics and classification
    In 1876, E. Mageu announced that, with the help of an artificial stimulus, a new excitement of the ventricles could be caused during the diastole period. This was the first mention of extrasystoles, although the term itself appeared after 20 years [Engelman T., 1896]. Extrasystoles are called premature in relation to the basic rhythm of arousal of the whole heart or any of its parts [Scherf D., Schott A., 1953]. AT
  3. General characteristics and classification of injuries
    Trauma (from the Greek. Trauma - wound), violation of the integrity of the structure and physiological functions of tissues and organs under the influence of external agents (mechanical, chemical, electrical, radiation, mental, etc.) accompanied by local and general reaction of the body. In clinical medicine there is a special section - traumatology, which studies injuries, their causes, types, course, methods.
  4. Classification of psychodiagnostic methods, their general characteristics and psychological justification
    Different authors offer different ways to classify psychodiagnostic methods. For example, in the opinion of R. S. Nemov (1995), one can single out: 1. Methods of psychodiagnostics based on observation (standardized and free observation); 2. Survey methods, psychodiagnostic methods (questionnaires; questionnaires that

  6. Classification of aplastic anemia
    Depending on whether there is an isolated inhibition of erythroid germ or all germs, there are partial and total forms of aplastic anemia. They are accompanied by appropriately isolated anemia or pancytopenia. According to the classification of V. I. Kalinicheva (1983), the following variants of the disease are distinguished. I. Hereditary aplastic anemia. 1. Hereditary aplastic
  7. Classification of anemia
    Anemia is a condition characterized by a decrease in the hemoglobin content and / or the number of red blood cells per unit volume of blood, leading to disruption of oxygen supply to tissues (hypoxia). Anemia should be considered a decrease in the level of red blood cells to 3.8-3.6 x 10'2 / l and below, the hemoglobin content to 115-110 g / l and below. Since in the body there is a constant intensive formation of red blood cells and
  8. CLASSIFICATION OF HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA
    (Vorobyev, AI, 1988) Groups I. Non-immune hemolytic anemia (HA). 1. Hereditary and congenital: a) membranopathies associated with impaired protein components: • microspherocytosis, • elliptocytosis, • stomatocytosis, • pyropoikilocytosis; b) membranopathy associated with impaired lipid bilayer: • acanthocytosis, • deficiency of acetylcholinesterase activity; at)
  9. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF WORK
    The thesis is devoted to the study of the development of the temporal perspective of the individual in ontogenesis from the perspective of a cultural-historical approach. The time perspective is understood in this study as a form of the subject's intentionality set by culture in the unity of its temporal and spatial characteristics. The time perspective thus understood is a representation of motivational
  10. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF WORK
    Relevance of the research topic. The study of psychological mechanisms for overcoming life's difficulties has been the subject of a large number of works carried out within the framework of a broad direction related to the problem of personal adaptation to changing conditions of life activity (K.A. Abulkhanova-Slavskaya, L. G. Dikaya, V. A. Bodrov, A. B. .Leonov and others.). The relevance of the direction causes a steady
  11. General characteristics of the principles of education
    When giving a description of one or another principle of education, it is important to take into account that each idea embodied in it is a reflection of one or several laws. Their essence is revealed and implemented in practice in the form of requirements and pedagogical rules of educational activity. The principles of education, as it were, allow to bridge the bridge from pedagogical theory to practical activity. Their
