Anaemia: when to suspect and how to interpret the results


Anaemia is frequently encountered in general practice. Anaemia is not a diagnosis but a presentation of an underlying cause. Although iron deficiency anaemia is the one that is most commonly recognised; there are various classifications of anaemia with numerous causes. It is important for primary care physicians to recognise, diagnose and appropriately manage all types of anaemia.
The article sets to deliver a concise overview of anaemia for the general physician with clear systematic pathways for common anaemias that can be adopted for use during a busy surgery.
