Does hypoxemic ischemic encephalopathy happen more in males than females?

Does hypoxemic ischemic encephalopathy happen more in males than females?

No: The hie is similar to choking enough to stop breathing for an extended period & get brain damage. Sex doesn't matter, the triggering stress is an equal factor. If blood flow to brain is interrupted or oxygen is unable to enter the blood, the injury can occur. This could be true knots in the umbilical cord, a cord wrapped around the neck or trapped in a clenched fist, stress at or before birth etc. ...Read more

If a patient has ischemic colon, how do you treat BP of 150-170/100-110 range? Pt is female w avg wt who exercises.

Pills: I am not sure of the nature of the ischemic colon problem. That can be an acute emergency at times. But in general, the blood pressure is a separate issue. It is too high, needs treatment, and if the patient is not on medication already, probably and ace inhibitor or an arb in combination with a hydrochlorothiazide would be a good starting combination for controll of the blood pressure. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 42 yr old female to have chronic microvascular ischemic changes of the brain & what could be the cause? History chronic muscle pn

Brain: My opinion on chronic microvascular changes...Most important is how bad. Sometimes there are a few small speckles seen in people with migraines that are definitely not worrisome. Otherwise risk factors for this are: smoking, high bp/cholesterol, diabetes, drug use, and genetics...Among other rare causes. My biggest recs would be to work on any changeable things like some of these. ...Read more

Male 52 yrs old had s severe ischemic stroke in 2013 takes aspirin high dose 325 daily. Recent bloodwork : low blood platelets 110. Your thoughts?

Thrombocytopenia: Or low platelets, by the way his platelets are mildly decreased and Aspirin. I assume the question is if it is safe for your dad to take Aspirin. If there is no trend and his platelets have never been low this may be a lab error and would suggest repeating the counts. If still low, it is still safe to take Asa with a dose reduction to half or a quarter for as long as platelets are over 50k. ...Read more

Yes & check LDL-P: You will need to be treated. The best indicator of response is another measure of LDL and HDL quantity - LDL and HDL particle number (ldl-p and hdl-p). When tg is high and hdl-c is low it is common to have high ldl-p and low hdl-p. Treat additional contributing factors (sugar, thyroid, kidney problems), optimize diet / exercise, and use medication as needed to get to low ldl-p (<1000). ...Read more
