Interaction of poor autoregulation and blood vessel fragility
In patients with CKD, there is an impairment of renal autoregulation, so any decrease in intraglomerular pressure due to a decrease in systemic blood pressure will cause a vasodilatation of the efferent side of the glomerulus, leading to a decline in the glomerular filtration rate and an increase in serum creatinine levels (Palmer, 2002).
With the Pari-Mutuel providing a system of autoregulation and other controls maintaining a permanent vigil, French racing is as clean as it can be.
Therapeutic options used in management are based on assumed functional pressure autoregulation, the brain's capacity to maintain a relatively constant blood flow in spite of changes in blood pressure.
ABSTRACT: This article focuses on variations in moose population densities and sex ratios, autoregulation of its population density, and related effects on the forest since a moose outbreak in 2 central parts of the East-European Plain due to the appearance of early successional tree species, resulting from felling in the course of World War II.
(1993), however, reported that the mechanism controlling nodulation or substances involved in autoregulation are different between soybean and common bean (P.
Elevated blood pressure has been found to result in loss of cerebral autoregulation (as measured by cerebral haemodynamics), which is rapidly restored to normal following antihypertensive treatment [60, 61], and it is possible that cerebral autoregulation and CNS performance may be related.
Dysfunction of cerebral autoregulation induced by hypertension is considered as a presumptive mechanism for contributing to RCVS.[2] As arterial hypertension, probably due to autonomic dysfunction, is frequently associated with GBS, it may be an important provoking factor of RCVS.
Considering that lower GCS score is related to changes in the autoregulation mechanism which enables brain to adjust to the injury, (10,11) identifying the positions in which patients with different GCS scores are placed is important for patient safety.
En termes plus clairs, on assiste a un passage de la regulation exercee par l'Etat a une autoregulation du secteur effectuee par les journalistes et professionnels eux-memes.
This review aims at delineating the possible mechanisms of impaired cerebral autoregulation, identifying the different modalities to measure cerebral blood flow characteristics, and reviewing the neurological complications associated with ECMO.
