Introduction:The measurement of exercise capacity through Peak Oxygen Uptake is an important factor in predicting mortality and survival in patients after transplantation. Methods:In this study 31 renal transplant candidates aged 17 to 58 years were evaluated through spirometery and Exercise test and results were registered according to the assumed inclusion criteria including age , hemoglobin (Hb) and hematocrite and the results were analyzed through statistical and analytical measures.Among these 31 patients there were 5 women and 26 men, that the averages of hemoglobin were 12±1 (maximum 13.5 and minimum 10.6) and 11.8 ±2 (maximum 15.6 and minimum 7.4) respectively. According to the degree of anemia � patients were divided into three categories. Mild anemia ( Hb between 6 to 9 )� moderate anemia ( Hb between 9 to 12 ) and normal ( Hb 12 and more ).Results:After dividing of VO2 max in to 2 groups including normal (�20) and abnormal (20�) and analysis via independents T test , we found that there was a correlation between hemoglobin and hematocrite and VO2 max, and the P values were 0.015 and 0.005 respectively. Conclusion:we can help patients with an effort to correct anemia leading to more survival and less mortality in those with end stage renal disease expecting renal transplantation.
