The disease is characterised by a diffuse capillary leak with hypovolaemia
and acute kidney injury, and a fatal outcome may often be predicted by a persistently low platelet count, elevation of the AST and ALT to > 200 and > 150 IU/L, respectively, and of the aPTT to >60 seconds, and a decrease in the fibrinogen level to < 110 mg/dL.
Following the assessment, the PART nurse diagnoses include sepsis secondary to CAP, hypoxaemia and hypovolaemia
In spite of the massive blood loss, initial hypovolaemia
and hypotension, she had no progressive renal injury, with renal function recovering within 6 days.
Bliacheriene F, Machado SB, Fonseca EB, Otsuke D, Auler JO Jr, Michard E Pulse pressure variation as a tool to detect hypovolaemia
Exclusion criteria were the following: previous history of stroke, previous episode of rehabilitation, medical instability, history of other neurologic disease, amputation, severe disabling arthritis, haemodialysis treatment, atrial fibrillation, left bundle brunch block or hypovolaemia
The clinician can now utilise ultrasound to further diagnose possible causes of cardiac arrest, which include cardiac tamponade, tension pneumothorax, hypovolaemia
and pulmonary embolism.
Two days after discharge, she was re-admitted with signs and symptoms of hypovolaemia
The management of Addison's disease is focused mainly on the correction of hypovolaemia
and electrolyte imbalances with adequate amounts of intravenous fluids, the correction of hypoglycaemia, long-term glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement and the management of underlying causes.
A small percentage of patients with unintentional durotomy sustain intracranial haemorrhage, likely due to an alteration in intradural hydrostatic dynamics caused by cerebrospinal fluid hypovolaemia
Heat acclimatization elicits adaptations that regulate dehydration and hypovolaemia
(Van Kampen, 1981).
However, even with the wealth of information available from observed parameters, the ICU staff commonly deal with difficult questions such as, should an oliguric patient be treated with fluids or with diuretics, and are they suffering from hypovolaemia
or fluid overload?
Excessive release of catecholamines from adrenal medulla in response to stimuli such as pain, hypovolaemia
and trauma inhibits pancreatic production of insulin and its peripheral activity, leading to hyperglycemia.
