Answer

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) has published evidence-based guidelines on the screening, diagnosis, and management of cardiopulmonary, renal, and cerebrovascular complications of sickle cell disease (SCD), as well as on management of SCD-related pain and transfusion support in SCD. (Note that conditional recommendations—actions for which there is very low certainty in the evidence about effects—are listed as suggestions.) [109, 110, 89, 111]
