Parameters for intervention regarding blood pressure control and erythropoietin therapy will depend on the protocol of each unit. Patients with uncontrolled hypertension should not be started on ESAs until the blood pressure is controlled. A single high blood pressure reading is not an indication to omit the ESA, but a trend in the rise of the blood pressure needs to be addressed and additional antihypertensive therapy considered if this occurs. If the patient develops uncontrolled hypertension the ESA should be stopped until the blood pressure is controlled and then recommenced with close monitoring.

A proportion of reticulocytes complete the maturation process after they have been released into the blood from the bone marrow. Erythropoietin de´Čüciency is a logical consequence of damage to the renal production sites of the hormone. There is a marked decrease in the amount of erythropoietin produced in response to hypoxia and the subsequent development of anaemia. As it is well known that impaired erythropoietin production is one of the main causes of renal anaemia there is little point in measuring erythropoietin levels.

Erythropoietin cannot be stored in the body, but the hormone is always present in the plasma. Secretion into the blood is continuous, although the amount produced is increased in response to hypoxia. Hypoxia leads to increased production of erythropoietin in the kidneys and its subsequent release into the plasma. Erythropoiesis (red blood cell formation) is thus stimulated and the number of erythrocytes entering the blood from the bone marrow becomes elevated. The increased number of erythrocytes can then carry more oxygen to the tissues and as the hypoxia resolves erythropoietin production is reduced.
