PMID:  23025780     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Objective: To review causes of anemia in preterm infants and to suggest potential preventive measures. Methods: Data for this review is obtained from review of the literature. Results: An approach to investigating and treating causes of neonatal anemia is outlined. Conclusions: Clinical practices can significantly impact anemia in premature infants. Delayed cord clamping, decreasing phlebotomy loss and optimizing nutritional support are practices that may decrease the severity of anemia, thereby decreasing the need for transfusions or erythropoietin treatment.
