Extract

In this issue, Goobie et al1 describe an independent association of preoperative anemia, defined as a hematocrit level less than 40%, with higher in-hospital mortality in neonates. Preoperative anemia was 1 of several independent risk factors associated with postoperative mortality; the others were American Society of Anesthesiologists class 3 to 5, body weight less than 2 kg, preoperative mechanical ventilation, and preoperative inotropic support. With almost two-thirds of the procedures being classified as emergent, the factors associated with mortality, with the exception of anemia, are largely not modifiable prior to surgery. The question then remains: if the anemia was corrected prior to surgery, would the outcome be improved with respect to the mortality rate?
