- Even slow bleeding reduces the amount of iron in the body, so that the bone marrow cannot keep up in the production of new red blood cells. Sudden excess bleeding drastically reduces the number of red cells so that the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood can be drastically reduced.
- Make a distinction between chronic and acute blood loss. Slow chronic bleeding can be from uterine or colon cancers, from chronic use of NSAIDS, etc. Acute blood loss is from GI bleeds, surgery or trauma for example.
