    Visual analogue scales confirmed symptomatic improvement after
    erythrapheresis. Erythrapheresis significantly improved symptoms,
    mental function, and work performance

    Erythrapheresis in patients with polycythaemia secondary to hypoxic
    lung disease.

    Wedzicha JA, Rudd RM, Apps MC, Cotter FE, Newland AC, Empey DW.

    Erythrapheresis was performed in 10 patients with polycythaemia
    secondary to hypoxic lung disease (mean PaO2, 6.8 kPa (51 mm Hg)). The
    mean packed cell volume decreased from 0.64 to 0.48 in men and from
    0.56 to 0.42 in women, with significant decreases in blood viscosity at
    both high and low shear rates (p less than 0.001). Patients showed
    significant improvement in six-minute walking distances (p less than
    0.001) and in tests of mental alertness (p less than 0.01) compared to
    control subjects. Visual analogue scales confirmed symptomatic
    improvement after erythrapheresis. Erythrapheresis significantly
    improved symptoms, mental function, and work performance in patients
    with polycythaemia secondary to hypoxic lung disease. The procedure was
    well tolerated by all patients and no complications occurred.
