Anemia: Information, Detection & Management

Anemia is the most serious complication of iron deficiency and a significant cause of death. More than half of the pregnant women in developing countries suffer from anemia. The accurate estimation of hemoglobin levels is an essential pre-requisite in a variety of other health issues, such as trauma care, selection of blood donors, epidemiological studies, and general primary health care. The measurement of hemoglobin in blood as an indicator of anemia has traditionally relied on the services of a well-equipped clinical laboratory. In primary health care centers, when laboratory facilities are not available, anemia is usually diagnosed from clinical signs (pallor of the conjunctiva, tongue, palms and nail beds, using anemia recognition cards if available), although accurate interpretation of these signs depends a great deal on effective training. However, in rural areas where anemia is common, an alternative method is needed to screen for anemia easily and economically.

How does the Color Scale for Hemoglobin work?

It is a simple and effective medical device for the accurate estimation of hemoglobin levels in blood. It comprises a small card with six shades of red that represent hemoglobin levels at 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 14 g/dl respectively.
The device is simple to use:
- Place a drop of blood on the test strip provided
- Wait about 30 seconds
- Match immediately the color of the blood spot against one of the hues on the scale.
This will indicate whether the patient is anemic and, if so, the severity of anemia in clinical terms.

Sensitivity and specificity of the Scale to screen for anemia

For severe anemia, the Scale shows a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 99.6%. To distinguish normal from mild anemia, the sensitivity and specificity are 98%. Using a photometer (Stat-Site M) as a reference, the Scale was compared with the copper sulphate specific gravity method that is traditionally used to screen blood donors for anemia. The scale was accurate to 98% in distinguishing among 2,800 volunteer blood donors those with normal Hb from those rejected because of anemia. The Scale was more reliable than copper sulphate, the tests giving 2.4% and 5.4% false readings respectively.
