Abstract

Thirty cases of anaemia due to different pathologies (patients with bone marrow transplant, cancer patients, cases of aplastic anaemia, premature babies) were studied and the reticulocyte counts and haemocromocytometric tests were carried out. The RMI (index of reticulocyte maturity) was calculated with the following formula: (HFR + MFR)/LFR x 100. It was discovered that when there is a RMI value exceeding 20%, there is a haemoglobin increase of over 0,5 g % in the following 24 hours. In other thirty cases with the same pathologies, there were no significant increase of the haemoglobin value with RMI values below 20%. This simple index can be utilized with the aim of reducing the number of blood units to be transfused.
