A venous blood sample was collected and submitted for hematologic evaluation, results of which showed hemoconcentration (suspected to be the result of dehydration), anemia, and leukopenia with a slight monocytosis and lymphocytopenia (Table 1).
Since I saw all of the patients with OSA (but only one patient per week) at that time, I also hit upon the following idea: patients with OSA have increased water and salt excretion during sleep, which normalizes after treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment; therefore, before CPAP treatment, hemoconcentration may occur in patients with OSA in the morning.
In addition to either having or having not presented the following changes: hemoconcentration, hypoalbuminemia, alterations in liver function tests, as well as coagulation tests and increased urate levels ([greater than or equal to]6 mg dl-1); all of which manifested after the 20th week of pregnancy.
Mild-to-severe forms of clinical findings such as leukocytosis, hemoconcentration, hypovolemia, edema, ascites, hydrothorax, pericardial effusion, thromboembolic events, oligo or anuria, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and multiple organ failure can be seen due to extravasation of intravascular protein-rich fluid to the third spaces.
Hemoconcentration and a high hematocrit level as predictors of severity have been studied and yielded variable results (20).
Increase in the hematocrit values presented by the animals of G20 after cavalcade was attributed to hemoconcentration resulting from loss of liquids from sweating, water losses from hyperventilation and passage of water from the dilated vascular bed to the hyperosmotic muscle in action (JOHNSON, 1995).
In hyperstimulated women undergoing ART, cabergoline successfully reduces hemoconcentration and ascites as a well-established and safe medication in the prevention of OHSS (46).
Urinalysis is positive for glucose; complete blood count is normal other than showing a slight hemoconcentration.
Although the exercise induced leukocytosis is a well known physiological outcome, the subject's hemoconcentration and fluid loss from the plasma to the working muscle influence the increase in WBC concentration after exhaustive exercise.
Idiopathic hypoalbuminemia is different from systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS) which presents with recurrent acute episodes of vascular leakage manifesting as severe hypotension, hypoalbuminemia, hemoconcentration, and generalized edema.
The criteria for DHF included (1) continuous high grade fever lasting 2 to 7 days; (2) hemorrhagic tendency as shown by a positive tourniquet test, petechiae, or epistaxis; (3) platelet counts <100,000/cumm; and (4) evidence of plasma leakage manifested by hemoconcentration (an increase in hematocrit 20% above the average for age, sex, and population), pleural effusion, and ascites.
