Purpose. To study the prevalence of anemic syndrome in orthopedic patients hospitalized for proximal femoral fractures.
Materials and Methods. Peripheral blood parameters studied in 74 patients with proximal femoral fractures. The parameter dynamics analyzed in different age-related groups.
Results. The syndrome of hemic hypoxia demonstrated to be quite common in orthopedic patients. The anemic syndrome of moderate severity revealed in more than 60% of elder and senile males and 70% females of the same age is of the greatest risk.
Conclusion. All the patients admitted for proximal femoral fracture should be thoroughly examined in order to identify the risk factors of the anemic syndrome. The process of examination should be regulated by certain standards followed by developing the plan of correcting the existing or potential disorders.
