BACKGROUND: Smoking is a cause of cancer and polycythemia. Therefore, surgeons who treat patients with cancer may also encounter patients with polycythemia. However, few cases of surgical patients with polycythemia have been reported; in particular, a surgical case involving smokers' polycythemia has never been reported. We herein report a patient with lung cancer and smokers' polycythemia who successfully underwent lobectomy with control of hematocrit based on a modified formula in the perioperative period...

BACKGROUND: The paper considers a database of old (already published) and new data concerning 23 groups of workers (Total number of subjects examined=5373) with different levels of exposure to repetitive movements of the upper limbs: for all these groups data were available regarding exposure indexes (OCRA index and Checklist "OCRA" score) and clinically determined UL-WMSD outcomes (PA=Prevalence of workers Affected by one or more UL- WMSDs; PC=Prevalence of single diagnosed Cases of an UL- WMSDs)...

Expression of predicted and measured red cell mass (RCM) in terms of ml/kg body wt. lacks precision. The use of formulae for prediction of normal mean red cell mass derived from the blood volume prediction (BV) of Nadler et al (1962) has been examined. It is proposed that a more accurate determination of mean normal predicted red cell mass (MNRCM) is obtained by using: 0.47 X 0.91 X BV = MNRCM for males; 0.43 X 0.91 X BV = MNRCM for females. The MNRCMs given by these formulae agree with those given by predictions based on lean body mass and surface area...
