A dissonance between expectations and reality creates a sense of humor, which, when utilized in literature, acts to amplify criticism. Building on this, exaggerating flaws and unusual situations connects the novel to the reader, establishing a successful comedy.

Anemia has many different forms including iron deficiency anemia and sickle cell anemia. It all comes down to a lack in red blood cell count. This lack is very important because our bodies need oxygen to operate correctly. There are ways to prevent some types of anemia. It is good to know your family’s history because some types of anemia are passed down through the family. If the body has a lack of oxygen some very severe things may occur. These things include stroke and disruption in growth. In the Aplastic anemia, the body is lacking in more than just red blood cells.

The patient’s health status is often defined according to ancillary, but objective, studies such as radiology, direct visualization, and laboratory. The results are definitive and absolute; although it may not diagnose the problem, the study’s result details findings of what was examined.

Larry, who has 20% hct and 95% oxygen saturation would benefit by a transfusion because his hct is low, but does not need supplemental oxygen. Curly who has 40% hct and 95% oxygen saturation would be helped by neither because both hct and oxygen saturation percentage is in the normal range. Moe who has 30% hct and 95% oxygen saturation would benefit from a transfusion because his hct is low; however, supplemental oxygen would not be of any assistance.
