What vitamin is needed for clotting?
What kinda foods can you get Vit K from?
- Kale, Spinach, Collards, Swiss chard, Mustard
- greens, Turnip greens, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Asparagus
Vit K affects the extrinsic or instrinsic pathway? So it affects which drug? Heparin or coumadin?

What are common symptoms of anemia?
What vitamin do strict vegetarians lack because it comes from animal meat?
Wht vitamin do people with partial or total gastrectomy lack because of lack of absorbtion?
____ and _____ are signs of vit b12 and oron deficiencies.
What does the lab work MCV measure?
the average size of a RBC.
Pernicious anemia is a vit b12 deficiency or iron?
If MCV is elevated, is the erythrocyte large or small? So is it macro or microcytic anemia?
What about vice versa?
Elevated, large, macro.
Decreased, small, micro.
Is iron deficiency anemia the only microcytic anemia?
What does the lab value MCH measure?
amount of hemoglobin in the blood.
Iron def. anemia and thalassemia is hypochromic, that means it's pale -> less hemo for it's color. Is the MCH decreased or elevated?
Pernicious anemia is hyperchromic. That means there's a lot of hemo for it's color. Is the MCH going to be decreased or elevated?
What does MCHC measure?
think Hemo in Cell.
concentration of hemo inside of the cell.
Is VIT K affecting the extrinsic or intrinsic?
What is the most common anemia? Iron or pernicious?
Iron deficiency/thalassemia anemia is the only micro ones we've learned. That means they're small. So they're also hypochromic. What could be the cause?

Why am i drinking OJ with my Iron?

My shit is black after taking Iron. Is that normal?
Why is the reticulocyte count the most valuble test in answering why thea anemia is there?
Reticulocytes are immature RBC in the marrow.
Many chronic imflammatory diseases are associated with normo/normo anemias. Why is it important to diagnose the chronic disease first?
So you can treat the disease.
What is aplastic anemia? What would a person present with? What Tx?
