Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: History of Transfusion   #830200

Definition: A questionnaire to assess history of transfusion.

Purpose: Blood transfusions, which are used to treat various medical conditions such as hemophilia, cancer, and sickle cell disease, expose patients to risks of infectious agents (e.g., HIV and hepatitis), iron overload, alloimmunization and hyperviscosity. Transfusion therapy can also impact the results of bioassays, such as complete blood count, reticulocyte count, cell-free hemoglobin, haptoglobin, aspartate aminotransferase, and measurements such as transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD).


Keywords: Sickle cell disease, SCD, transfusion, blood transfusion, chronic transfusion, iron chelation, transfusion history, hemophilia, hemochromatosis, HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, red cell exchange, erythrocytapheresis,
