Can Low Blood Pressure Causes Hoarseness After Dialysis
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
Multiple things: Heart failure, adrenal insufficiency, unstable cardiac arrthymias (abnormal rhythms), sepsis with septic shock, neurogenic shock, cardiogenic shock, and most commonly dehydration. It depends how low it is, if low normal and you are not symptomatic you shouldn't get it higher. Smaller patients tend to have lower blood pressures as a whole. ...Read more
Many causes: Low blood pressure is generally desirable, but if there is lightheadedness with position change or other symptoms of low blood pressure, need to ensure no underlying problems- low thyroid, or low cortisol, or slow heart rate. Need to ensure good hydration status, consider liberalizing salt intake. Compression stockings can be quite helpful. Some medications may include midodrine or florinef (fludrocortisone). ...Read more
Multiple etiologies: There are multiple etiologies to low bp, including low volume status (i.e., dehydration, acute bleeding, etc) versus infection (causing vasoplegia) or heart failure with low cardiac ouput. The most common caue of acutely low blood pressure can be vasovagal in nature ( a reflex that happens briefly) that can be interrupted by quickly squatting down and squeezing both hands.. ...Read more
Hypoperfusion: Not enougth circulation can cause poor perfusion of the brain and this cause a temporary blackout. Staying flat is usually enough to reverse it. ...Read more
Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
