Answer

Inpatient care for patients with aplastic anemia may be needed during periods of infection and for specific therapies, such as antithymocyte globulin (ATG) or HCT. In addition, iron chelation may be required in chronically transfused patients who develop elevated serum ferritin levels above 1000 µg/L. [5]  Phlebotomy can be done to decrease the iron overload post transplantation in aplastic anemia patients. [5]
