Understanding CKD Anemia - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with CKD anemia or anemia due to chronic kidney disease. This video will help you understand more about CKD anemia and how it affects your body. Anemia happens when you don't have enough red blood cells. Red blood cells are made in the center of bones called bone marrow. In red blood cells, iron is needed to make a protein that carries oxygen called hemoglobin. Red blood cells flow through the bloodstream to the lungs to pick up oxygen. As blood flows through the lungs, oxygen moves from air sacs into the blood. Then, oxygen attaches to the hemoglobin in red blood cells. These red blood cells deliver oxygen to cells throughout the body. Cells need oxygen to function and survive. In anemia, there are not enough healthy red blood cells to deliver oxygen to the body. This means that organs and tissues may not work as well as they should. While many conditions may cause anemia, it is often caused by chronic kidney disease. The kidneys make a hormone called erythropoietin or EPO. The bone marrow uses EPO to make red blood cells. Chronic kidney disease damages the kidneys so they don't make enough EPO. As a result, the bone marrow makes less red blood cells, causing anemia. Symptoms of CKD anemia may include feeling tired or weak, pale skin color, headaches, problems concentrating or thinking, loss of appetite, chest pain, a fast heartbeat, feeling lightheaded when you stand up, and shortness of breath with activity. A doctor may test a sample of your blood to see if you have CKD anemia. For example, a complete blood count test can measure the amount of hemoglobin and red blood cells in a sample. A normal hemoglobin range in healthy adults is 13.8 to 17.2 for men, and 12.1 to 15.1 for women. A low hemoglobin level in chronic kidney disease is below 13 for men and below 12 for women. Your doctor may perform other tests to evaluate CKD anemia. If you have questions about CKD anemia, when to start treatment, or any medications you have been prescribed, talk to your doctor. It is important to take your medications as directed, and report any side effects you have.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
