During her hospital stay, the pain in her legs was so bad that she was confined to her bed and required a urinary
catheter to empty her bladder. After a five day stay in the hospital, she was released.
History of sickle cell anemia, diabetes, heart disease, and hypercholesterolemia.
Also complained of strange urinary symptoms, she was feeling a persistent urge to urinate and then when she would urinate, only a very small amount of urine would be passed.

Urine appeared cloudy and was slightly pink in color, indicating a urinary tract infection. Since she was recently in the hospital with a catheter, it is suspected that the infection was acquired during the hospital stay.

From the time Anna was young, until she reached adulthood at 18, she would see a children's doctor. A Pediatrician is seen from when you are sick, as well as for regular health check ups.
At around age 37, Anna was referred to a Cardiologist because she experienced two episodes of self-resolved chest pain. A Cardiologist is responsible for evaluating the health of the heart and blood vessels.
A EMT is a first response to any emergency call that may pertain to a person's health. The day Anna died, the first person/people to get to her house where the EMTs. EMTs are skilled in many of the basic procedures related to common health emergency calls.

Cause of Death

Anna died of a Ischemic Stroke caused by Sickle Cell Anemia. In the autopsy, Anna had facial drooping on the left side; which is a sign of a stroke. At Anna's house on the day of her death, Tylenol pills were found. The pills can be used for headaches, which is another warning sign of a stroke. The sickle cells blocked her Middle Cerebral Artery and left Internal Carotid Artery because of their deformed shape. The blockage resulted in oxygen deprivation in the tissues in her brain. The oxygen shortages also occurred in her fingers and toes.



Sickle Cell Disease can also cause edema, which was present in her ankles. Acetylsalicylic Acid (ASA) was discovered in Anna's blood. ASA is used as an anti-inflammatory- to help Anna's ankle.

The oxygen deprivation may have caused Anna to collapse, knocking over the table from the scene of her death. She would then have hit her head on the floor, inducing vomiting.
