ARE BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS SAFE IN THE HOSPITALIZED PATIENT?
By: Dr. Joan Pellegrini
Ever since we were able to offer blood transfusions (about the 1940′s), it has been common wisdom that higher red blood cell counts are good for you. We know that red blood cells carry oxygen and some athletes use this to their advantage when they train at higher altitudes in order to increase their red blood cell level (or engage in the illegal activity of “blood doping”). If you come into the hospital hemorrhaging and your life is in danger, you may receive a life-saving blood transfusion.
Because of the myriad of investment options, instruments and information, understanding yourself, knowing your risk tolerance creates a starting point to many of your investment decisions.
What is risk profile? – Your risk profile is a measure of one portion of determining investment suitability. Do you feel comfortable with small company investments in Emerging Markets? Do you prefer large firms based in the U.S.? Do you like money in gold or CD’s at the bank? How do you feel about stock market fluctuations and volatility? Do you feel comfortable with the level of risk that you may need to take to meet your goals? Risk profile analysis helps identify your comfort level in investing.
