January 28, 2010 - A Blood Transfusion Makes the Difference

From Dr. Vernon Huang, anesthesiologist (Mills-Peninsula Health Services):

A young patient who sustained severe leg injuries in the earthquake. Although we have no lab capability, her pulse was registering 180 and the condition of her nailbeds allowed us to make the clinical diagnosis of anemia.

We were able to give her a blood transfusion her and her condition has much improved.
