Despite having standard principles of management of hemophilia, treatment differs in various countries depending on available resources. Guideline for management of hemophilia in Indian setting is essential. Indian Academy of Pediatrics conducted a consultative meeting on Hemophilia on 18th September, 2016 in New Delhi, which was attended by experts in the field working across India. Scientific literature was reviewed, and guidelines were drafted. All expert committee members reviewed the final manuscript. To bring out consensus guidelines in diagnosis and management of Hemophilia in India. Specific factor assays confirm diagnosis and classify hemophilia according to residual factor activity (mild 5-40%, moderate 1-5%, severe <1%). Genetic testing helps in identifying carriers, and providing genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis. Patients with hemophilia should be managed by multi-specialty team approach. Continuous primary prophylaxis (at least low-dose regimen of 10-20 IU/kg twice or thrice per week) is recommended in severe hemophilia with dose tailored as per response. Factor replacement remains the mainstay of treating acute bleeds (dose and duration depends on body weight, site and severity of bleed). Factor concentrates (plasma derived or recombinant), if available, are preferred over blood components. Other supportive measures (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) should be instantly initiated. Long-term complications include musculoskeletal problems, development of inhibitors and transfusion-transmitted infections, which need monitoring. Adequate vaccination of children with hemophilia (with precautions) is emphasized.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 April 2020.
All research outputs
of 17,464,602 outputs
Outputs from Indian Pediatrics
of 767 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 330,838 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Indian Pediatrics
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,464,602 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 767 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 330,838 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
