“It’s easy to measure hemoglobin and see that it’s low and give a unit of blood and you know, two hours later you can check the hemoglobin and the hemoglobin is higher. So you feel like you’ve
done something. Has it necessarily benefited the patient? I’m not convinced of that. It’s perhaps benefited the people taking care of the patient because, you know, hemoglobin at time x and then
hemoglobin at time y, and you’ve seen an appropriate change. The issue is whether that change means anything clinically.”
