Abstract :

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of blood transfusion in thalassaemia patient in urban and rural area of Rahata during July 2011 to February 2012. Thalassaemic fifty patients were selected and regularly blood transfusion was carried out. Pre- and post-transfusion Hb, RBC, WBC, HCT, platelets, MCV, MCH, MCHC, urea, sugar, creatinine and cholesterol were evaluated. The obtained results are discussed. Also symptoms, epidemiology, and possible physiology discussed.
