  • 1. ANEMIA www.freelivedoctor.com
  • 2. ANEMIA <ul><li>any condition in which the number of red cells , the amount of hemoglobin or the volume of packed red blood cells per unit volume is less than normal. </li></ul><ul><li>a pathophysiological condition in which the body cannot meet its demands for oxygen. </li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com
