The low hemoglobin level of anemia reduces blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity. Tachycardia increases the cardiac output. These factors can offset each other to a degree, allowing continued delivery of adequate quantities of oxygen to the tissues. As the hemoglobin level continues to fall, a point occurs at which the augmented cardiac output cannot compensate for the diminished oxygencarrying capacity of the blood. This crisis point varies greatly between individuals. Factors such as activity level and coincident disease greatly influence the clinical situation.
