Hyperchloremic metabolic acidemia
was not linked to treatment with Hextend, even when it was used in large volumes (exceeding 6 liters in one patient), along with Lactated Ringer's.

Category III includes patterns that are "abnormal" and have been consistently associated with fetal acidemia
54) also had fewer false-negative (FN) cases when patients with acidemia
were selected compared to unselected cases in the previous study by Muckart and Abdool-Carrim (53).
pulmonary emboli), (2) elevated left atrial pressure (mitral stenosis), (3) thickening of pulmonary arterial and arteriolar walls (scleroderma), (4) derangement and destruction of alveolar walls with damage to pulmonary capillaries in proximity (interstitial lung disease), (5) left-to right shunting increasing blood flow in the pulmonary circulation (congenital cardiac anomalies), and (6) pulmonary vasoconstriction caused by hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and acidemia

Although several studies attest to a decreased risk of cesarean section, fetal acidemia
, or low Apgar score, (7-9,13-18) others have not shown benefit, (19-22) including a recent Cochrane Review.
Doctors diagnosed him with Isovaleric Acidemia
(IVA), an organic acid disorder.
Because methylmalonic and propionic acidemia
could not be excluded while confirmatory test results were pending, feedings were discontinued, intravenous hydration with glucose-containing fluids was initiated, and the infant was transferred to our institution.
The prospective, multicenter observational study evaluated umbilical artery, ductus venosus and umbilical vein Doppler flows, and biophysical parameters as predictors of stillbirth, acidemia
(cord artery pH less than 7.
How does one use all of the blood gas results to aid in the differential determination of the mechanisms of acidemia
or alkalemia in order to facilitate and optimize treatment?
The collaboration encourages stem cell research for the study of neural crest stem cells as potential transplantable tissue for the repair of injury such as that sustained during traumatic brain injury or stroke, for the repair of pathological processes such as those seen in the neurogenetic diseases glutaric acidemia
(Type I) or Leigh's disease, or for repair of neurodegenerative processes such as those seen in Parkinson's or Alzheimer Diseases.
