Anaemia is a common issue in the paediatric age group and it is not uncommon to encounter severe cases of anaemia in the Paediatric Emergency Unit. The correct identification of patients requiring urgent care is of central importance to provide timely interventions. However, considering that most patients are haemodynamically stable, transfusions are not always mandatory. Even in the setting of the Emergency Unit, the differential diagnosis can be narrowed with specific laboratory tests. The paper presents three exemplary cases from the experience of a Paediatric Emergency Unit that will help to provide a summary of the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to severe anaemia in infants and children.

Abstract

Anaemia is a common issue in the paediatric age group and it is not uncommon to encounter severe cases of anaemia in the Paediatric Emergency Unit. The correct identification of patients requiring urgent care is of central importance to provide timely interventions. However, considering that most patients are haemodynamically stable, transfusions are not always mandatory. Even in the setting of the Emergency Unit, the differential diagnosis can be narrowed with specific laboratory tests. The paper presents three exemplary cases from the experience of a Paediatric Emergency Unit that will help to provide a summary of the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to severe anaemia in infants and children.
