Red blood cells fulfill a vital task by carrying oxygen (O2) from the lung to the other organs. Anemic persons suffer from tissue hypoxia. They present with paleness, shortness of breath, angina pectoris, physical weakness, fatigue, and possibly, other symptoms such as headache. Severe cases may require red cell transfusions from blood donors.
