Title : Muscle strength and quality of life in children with sickle cell anemia

Abstract:

Sickle Cell Anemia is an increasing global health genetic problem characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia and tissue damage due to repeated microvascular obstruction by sickle shaped cells. Estimations suggest increasing number of infants born with Sickle Cell Anemia by year 2050. Better prediction of the severity of Sickle Cell Anemia could lead to more precise treatment and management. The study objective is to assess the handgrip muscle strength and four important domains of HRQol in children with Sickle Cell Anemia (Physical, Emotional, Social, School functioning). The urgent need for deeper information about future interventions such as a premarital genetic counseling and the potential lifestyle modifications strategies and priorities patient care decisions.

Audience will learn of the presentation:

  • Is there a correlation between children with Sickle Cell Anemia as a chronic disorder and handgrip strength?
  • Is there a correlation between children with Sickle Cell Anemia as a chronic disorder and HRQol (physical, emotional, social, school functioning)?
  • How can we measure accurately handgrip strength and HRQol?
  • Better prediction of severity of Sickle Cell Anemia could lead to precise treatment and management.
  • Feel urgency of awareness about future interventions such as premarital genetic counseling and potential life style modification strategies and priorities patient care decisions.
