Study Shows Pre-Op Hematocrit Affects Post-Op Outcomes

[Brown University] — Men over 65 with even slightly abnormal red blood cell counts – either too low or too high – are at greater risk of postoperative death or cardiac events following a major noncardiac surgery, according to a new study by researchers at the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
