Cases were divided into two groups proportionally selected at random. The procedure was applied to the study group and the control was left without effect to compare the results. The 89,33 % was represented by the very seriuos and critical in the study group , and the 80,85 % was included among this classification in the control group. The 66,67 % of blood transfusion practiced in asymptomatic patients, were carried out from the fourth and seventh day.
