WHAT DOES ANAEMIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

anaemic

Anemia

Anemia; is a decrease in number of red blood cells or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin in the blood. Anemia may also be diagnosed where there is decreased oxygen-binding ability of each hemoglobin molecule due to deformity or lack in numerical development as in some other types of hemoglobin deficiency. The name is derived from Ancient Greek: ἀναιμία anaimia, meaning "bloodlessness", from ἀν- an-, "not" + αἷμα haima, "blood". Because hemoglobin normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the capillaries, anemia leads to hypoxia in organs. Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, varying degrees of anemia can have a wide range of clinical consequences. Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. The several kinds of anemia are produced by a variety of underlying causes. It can be classified in a variety of ways, based on the morphology of RBCs, underlying etiologic mechanisms, and discernible clinical spectra, to mention a few. The three main classes include excessive blood loss, excessive blood cell destruction or deficient red blood cell production.
