Background: Anaemia is a global public health problem which affects both the developing and the developed countries , World-wide, more individuals have iron-deficiency anemia than any other health problem . The present study is to find the prevalence of anemia and to compare the effectiveness of two haemoglobin meter, Cynmethemoglobin and Digital Haemometer (Mission).
Methods: For this 60 public people from Puducherry Population, were their blood pressure, lifestyle practise was analysed, haemoglobin was tested in both Cynmethemoglobin Method and Digital Haemometer for all 60 population. Venous blood was collected to test Cynmethemoglobin method and capillary blood was taken to test in Digital Haemometer and the effectiveness was compared.
Results: In average 60 adult samples the median haemoglobin concentration using the Digital Haemometer was 12.8 g/dl and 12.0 g/dl with Cynmethemoglobin method. The prevalence of anemia was slightly higher when using Cynmethemoglobin method 73.3% (44) were 58.3 % (35) was seen in Digital Heamometer. Haemoglobin was analysed in both the method were the prevalence anemia the cynmethemoglobin method has higher prevalence of anaemia than the Digital haemometer method.
