Mr. Baker was admitted to city hospital, with complains of worsening osteoarthritis followed with difficult mobilization. Electric surgery done. Post operatively he was disorientated, due to anaesthetic effect. Certain blood test were done which reveal haemoglobin dropped at 72 g/ dl. He was transfused with 3 units of packed red blood cells. He was commenced an Aspirin 100 mg , panadein forte 55 mg, along with ramipril 5mg , for his hypertension management. Dressing which need to be applied daily.
