Hemodilution - It is a low hematocrit, It may result from an increased plasma volume (hemodilution) causing false low Hb (anemia) or It may result from reduced red blood cell volume (true anemia). Example - in congestive heart failure fluid is retained in our body. This results in low hematocrit and Hb may not represent actual value because if hemodilution caused by retention of fluid. Similar picture may happen after giving excess intravenous fluids

Thank you doctor

Decreased concentration (as after hemorrhage) of cells and solids in the blood resulting from gain of fluid — compare hemoconcentration.. The administration of large amounts of intravenous fluids may cause iatrogenic hemodilution and, at times, even a paradoxical decrease in DO2. The associated decrease in Hb values to below the acceptable transfusion threshold may lead to avoidable blood transfusions.

DECREASED CONCENTRATION OF.. CELLS AND SOLIDS .. IN THE BLOOD..RESULTING FROM.. GAIN OF FLUIDS COMPARE TO HEMOCONCENTRETION ..
