Abstract

Objective/Aim: The present investigation was designed to study the effect of blood transfusion on cardiac output and perfusion index. The aim was to demonstrate a relationship between hematocrit, lactate, cardiac output and perfusion index in anemic preterm infants and to investigate significant changes in these parameters induced by RBC transfusion.
