Keywords: Severe anemics, peripheral resistance.


Introduction: Anaemia is one of the most common diseases worldwide and a common cause of death in pregnant women and the children. Also, various hemodynamic effects are seen in the anemics. Aim:  of the study was to find out the hemodynamic changes in the severe anemics.  Materials and Methods: Physiological parameters like heart rate and systolic and diastolic blood pressure were measured and compared between the severe anemics and the age matched subjectsResults: A statistically significant difference was found in heart rate and blood pressure of anemics as compared to the controls. Conclusion: There is altered hemodynamics in anemics, the common cause of which could be decrease peripheral resistance in anemics.
