Résumé : Anemia is a common pathology in critically ill patients and about one third of intensive care unit (ICU) patients receive a red blood cell (RBC) transfusion at some point during their ICU stay [1]. At ICU admission, the mean hemoglobin concentration of critically ill patients is 11 g/dL, while in 60% and 30% of such patients, the mean hemoglobin concentration is less than 12 and 10 g/dL, respectively [1, 2]. © 2006 Springer Science + Business Media Inc.
