Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Sickle cell disease clinic. Patient's arm with tubes being used during a red blood cell exchange transfusion to treat sickle cell disease. Notes about the disease are at lower right. A pulse oximeter on the patient's finger is checking the pulse and blood oxygen levels. Also known as sickle cell anaemia and drepanocytosis, this is an inherited blood disease that largely affects black people. The blood's red blood cells contain abnormal haemoglobin that distorts them into a fragile sickle shape. This means they are easily destroyed. Severe cases can require blood transfusions to replace the red blood cells.
