    I've heard rumors of an article either in archives or the blue journal regarding a hemoglobin or hematocrit cut-off for poor functional outcomes. Does anyone know of such an article? It may have been in regards to cardiac rehab, and I believe the cut-off was a hct of 25.

    any help would be appreciated.
