In 30 seconds or less, explain the pathophysiology behind, and how to use transferrin, TIBC, ferritin, and MCV to differentiate between iron deficiency anemia and anemia of chronic disease. ........ lol Just kidding, that can't be done in 30 seconds (at least, not thoroughly)! If you need a more in-depth refresher on anemia labs, stick around as PA Kay explains what they mean and how to use them clinically (& for the boards!). She also shares a quick peak inside her Family Medicine rotation, and the top diagnoses she encountered. Hint: the title of this episode is a dead giveaway.
