Abstract
Background & Objective: Anemia is a common nutritional health problem in women’s child bearing age.
Pregnant women are at higher risk particularly during 3rd trimester of pregnancy. By definition, it is decrease in
number of RBCs below 4.5 million or Hb level below 11.0 gm % and hematocrit < 0.33 in pregnant women. Anemia
contributes significantly to maternal mortality and morbidity and also carries a risk factor for infant iron deficiency
anemia. Main causes of maternal anemia are blood loss, increased menstrual bleeding and nutritional iron & folate
deficiency. Anemia can be estimated by Hb estimation and Reticulocyte count (RC), which is a quantitative measure
of Bone marrow production of new RBCs, with a range of 0.5-2.5%(adults) and 2.6% in infants. Reticulocyte Index (RI)
is a calculation of ratio b/w level of anemia in response to which, RC has risen. Objective is to study pattern of
reticulocyte count in pregnant and non-pregnant women, 2) To compare Hb level in pregnant women in 3 trimesters
and non-pregnant women.3) To analyze pattern of reticulocyte count and compare levels of Hb concentration in
pregnant women in 3 trimesters and non- pregnant women. Methodology: A total of 100 women with age range of
18-40 yrs were examined (50 pregnant and 50 healthy non pregnant women) presenting to Obstetrical O.P.D. Blood
samples from subjects were collected, tested and hematologically analyzed. Both Inclusion and Exclusion criteria
strictly followed. Results & Conclusion: Hb level in pregnant women was significantly low as compared to non
pregnant women, whereas Reticulocyte count was higher in pregnant women than non pregnant women. Variation
of Hb concentration was seen as, high in 3rd Trimester. R C was raised in 2nd Trimester and reached peak in 3rd
trimester, while it remained normal or decreased in 1st trimester. Non-pregnant women showed normal range of R C.
So values of all red cell parameters in pregnant women was significantly low, as compared to age matched controls
except Reticulocyte count, which was raised during pregnancy. [Bedi S NJIRM 2016; 7(3): 40 - 44]

Key words: Haemoglobin, Anemia, Reticulocyte count, Trimester, Hematological, Bone marrow.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
