    I received a 42yr old man from ER who had walked in c/o black stools for several days and feeling tired. Hgb of 2. He was more upset that he wasn't allowed OOB to the bathroom or allowed anything to eat than he was knowing that he could be dead. Turned out he was an alcoholic / GI bleed.

    Hgb 2.1/9.0. Pt who hadn't been to a doctor in 40 years walked into the ER secondary to weakness (I'll bet). Did a cardiac work up, had an EF of 10 - 15%. Infused with multiple PRBCs, diagnosed with suspected colon cancer. Just shows you how gradual anemia can be tolerated.
