Sickle cell anemia (SCA) comes in a varied array of forms of sickle cell illness, and it is genetic blood disorder which is mostly found in the United States. This disease mostly affects the African Americans where there are about 1500 people admitted due to this disease…

However, prior to their early age, functional asplenia commonly increases and it may cause death to children. This is due to septicemia or some other issues. This is except if SCA is immediately diagnosed, and is broadly cared for in a medical and home environment, creating maternity nursing an important factor of knowledge of the Sickle cell anemia for neonatal health care (Silverstein & Silverstein, 2007).
As stated by Bloom (2001), research tool will explore all areas of research where it will compare and analyze the present and data from the research which will be carried out. The research tool always promotes more accurate findings by providing the expected findings. The research would intend to explore some of the effects and medical interventions to the patients experiencing Sickle cell anemia. Some research tools will be employed to assist in providing effective and reliable data and information. Qualitative and quantitative analysis would be used throughout the research. Some research questionnaires would be used, and patients and doctors would be asked to answer some questions which will be provided to them by a research team. Bibliometrics will also be used as it uses mathematical and statistical modes to examine and evaluate the finding of the scientific publications (Peterson, 2008). Particularly, this research is intended to support collaborations and innovation which will result to scientific advances. The research questions are listed below:
As per reports from several studies, SCA is an inherited disease which affects mostly the Black population. In relation to the intensive studies, it affects around one person in every 400 people who are of African origin. As said by Peterson (2008), Sickle Cell genes are as well present in people from Mediterranean countries, for instance, Italy and Turkey. The first sign of SCA was reported in 1910 by some

The article describes the condition of Ryan Clark, safety of Pittsburgh Steelers and the reason why he has been restricted from playing in the upcoming game against the Denver Broncos. The writer has described the limitations a professional player has to face because of sickle cell trait and has also highlighted the underlying pathology of the blood disorder.
It is the oxygen carrier in blood. In other words, Hemoglobin is responsible for distributing oxygen to different body organs. It should be noted that adequate oxygen supply is necessary for many of the body organs to function well. So any defects occur to the Hemoglobin can cause problems in the functioning of different body organs.
The author claims that the dreaded complication of the disease in adults are infarction crises which can manifest as dactylitis, femoral head necrosis, hematuria and stroke. The disease is through autosomal recessive inheritance. Mutation of the HbS gene causes a different type of hemoglobin that causes sickling of red blood cells.
This paper take a look at some of the various ways that the disease affects the lives of people and how this disease can be controlled and managed without causing death. A series of articles and books have been used here as the main sources for getting the useful information used here.
Most pregnant women fear telling their husbands that they should go, be screened, and would rather give birth to children who have sickle cell anaemia. The contributory factor to sickle cell anaemia is the fact that most people lack education about the disease and so are not aware about it.
ife she has lived, her days of no pain are very countable, and my one greatest fear is that she may never make it to the age of 40 because of the long term effects and prognosis of the disease.
Sickle cell anemia is a non treatable hereditary problem which has an effect on the
Research shows that one in 12 African Americans and about one in 100 Hispanic Americans convey the sickle cell attribute, which implies they are bearers of the infection. Sickle cell sickness is brought about by a change in the hemoglobin-Beta gene found on chromosome 11.
Databases suggest that there are more than 6000 known single gene disorders with an autosomal dominant or recessive or a X-linked inheritance pattern (Human Genome Project Information, 2008). One such single
The principle was understood to be a decrease in the red blood cells that ultimately caused death of the patient (Gale).
Being the most widespread form of anemia, this is primarily caused due to deficiency of iron in the body-either due to imbalanced diet
