The main treatment goal for Mr. F. is to reverse the pathological effects of DKA and prevent further complications—such as cardiac failure, respiratory failure, fluid loss, death etc. (Sole et al., 2013). The first priority for Mr. F is his airway, breathing, and circulation that were already accomplished by intubation and administration of dopamine. Again, due to Mr. F.’s age and alcohol abuse, there is a higher risk of kidney failure and dehydration; it is vital to monitor and correct his fluid and electrolyte imbalance to prevent complications—cardiovascular disease, fluid overload etc., and it gives an opportunity to treat acidosis easier (Hamdy & Khardori, 2015)—which was already accomplished with an administration of normal saline at
Male, 5-6 wk old Wistar rats weighing 200-250 g (Charles River Breeding Laboratories, Montreal, Quebec, Canada) were housed on a 12-hour light/dark cycle at constant room temperature and fed a standard commercial rat chow (120 µmol Na+/g,) and water ad libitumFor all surgeries, rats were anesthetized with 2% isoflurane in oxygen. Effective levels of anesthesia were maintained by observing reactions to physical stimulation such as toe-pinch, as well as monitoring the pattern of respiration. For pain relief, slow release buprenorphine (1mg/kg) was injected sc 1 hour before surgery which provides adequate analgesia for 3 days. . All surgeries and experiments for the present study were approved by the University of
The chronic administration of 0.75% (v/v) EG aqueous solution to the rats caused a significant increase in the urine volume (p < 0.001). On the day 30, urine output was 4.75 ± 0.35 ml/day in the control group, and 9 ± 1.21 ml/day in the EG group. HAEP increased further urine output when compared to the EG group during weeks 2nd, 3th and 4th week intervals and to the cystone group during 3th and 4th week intervals (Figure 1).
In the case study, two additional patients with low sodium concentration in their cells were also presented in order to serve as a comparison to the main case. The history of two Caucasian females, one 38 years of age and the other 24 years old were presented. The 38-year-old female drank 25,250mL bottles of water (6.25L total) whilst running a 64.4 km marathon. She suffered from confusion, headache, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, as well as pulmonary venous edema. Initially, the patient had a sodium content of 121 mmol/l and a serum osmolality of 253 mOsm/kg. In order to treat the patient, a hypertonic saline, normal saline, and 40mg of intravenous furosemide, a diuretic, were administered after which her sodium content rose to of 125 mmol/l after 2.5 hours and 141 mmol/l after 48 hours with no acute damage to cells. The 24-year-old female underwent an appendectomy and received 5% dextrose infusion before and after
* Salt restriction - Salt restriction is often necessary, as cirrhosis leads to accumulation of salt (sodium retention). Diuretics may be necessary to suppress
Define the stage of the disease is very important for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up . There are many ways for assessing the degree of liver fibrosis. Liver biopsy was the gold standard for assessing liver fibrosis, but now it is of limited value because it is so invasive, its high cost, poor acceptance, risk of complications, and intra/inter-observer variability (Poynard et al.,2007). During the different stages of fibrosis , there are excessive amounts of extracellular matrix of various biomarkers changed and new biomarkers appeared in the serum (Jarcuska et al.,2010 and Baranova et al. 2011).
Take 250 g of bone-in lamb and equal amount of chickpeas (250 g), a medium-sized onion, and 20 g cinnamon sticks and mix with 10 glasses (2.5 l) of water, boil and cook on medium heat. Boiling of the sample should continue until about four glasses of fluid remain. Then the pre-washed rice was added and in the last 5 minutes, half a gram of dried saffron powder and some salt were added. After cooking is completed, in order to prepare the desired remedy, the remaining fluid was separated by a filter and stored in the glass in the refrigerator. The patient should have been drinking this fluid before eating anything, with an empty stomach, three times a day and 80 cm3 every time (a calibrated container was provided as a measure for the patients), and for the period of three minutes (according to the recommendations in the Persian
This concept paper will discuss the different aspects of fluid and electrolytes as they relate to the body. First, the anatomy of the compartments where fluids and electrolytes are within the body will be discussed along with percentages contained in each compartment and how they are transported into and out of these compartments. Then, the pressures within these compartments and compositions of different types of fluids that may be within them will be discussed. Finally, the effects that different fluids may have on the body when they are administered and the classifications by tonicity of these different types of
The subjects were Sprague-Dawley male rats. Their age is 150 days. The supplier is Harlan Sprague-Dawley. They are maintained on a 12:12 h light/dark cycle and are provided with ad libitum access to food.
Adult male Wistar rats with a body weight of 200 ± 40 g were used in the experimentation. The animals were kept in a standard animal cage under standard temperature and light exposure, and were exposed freely to water and food ad-libitum.
Sprague Dawley (SD) Rats (8-11 weeks old and approximately 200-225 g in body weight at the beginning of the study) and Swiss Albino Mice (6-8 weeks old and approximately 25-30 g in body weight at the beginning of the study), from the Animal Facilities of Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, India, were used in the study. They were housed in a temperature controlled room with 12 h light/dark cycle at Animal House, Faculty of Pharmacy, Integral University, Lucknow-India. Special inbreed pellets and autoclaved water were provided
