Protien malnutrition: Albumen is an acute phase reactant and it is difficult to interpret well in the critically ill.

The list is long. For that reason, we generally feed patients earlier now. ...Read more
Acidosis: Respiratory acidosis (a) is a condition in which decreased ventilation (h) (hypoventilation) causes increased blood carbon dioxide concentration and decreased ph. Metabolic a occurs when the body produces too much acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. If a person has shock with an increased Lactic Acid level which leads to h, both types of acidosis are present. ...Read more
Does increasing oxygen work if patient is in respiratory distress and if they have low hemoglobin?
It does.: It will help if the patient o2 saturation is low. You would like to see it between %96-100 by adjusting o2 flow of 1-2 lit per min. But the main goal should be raising the hemoglobin to normal level. ...Read more
Could pulmozyme (dornase alfa) use result in increased respiratory rate in non-cf patient with a tracheostomy?
Maybe: Side effects with Pulmozyme (dornase alfa) are various and can include irritation of the throat, nose and voice changes. It can also cause hoarseness. I use a fair amount in my patients and have not seen it increase respiratory rate. I guess if it was irritating the airway you could breath faster due to pain/discomfort. I don't think that increased resp rate is very common on this drug. ...Read more
What does high neutrophils and low lymphocytes in a patient with gastroenteritis and pancreatitis indicate? Could this be a result of an autoimmune condition? On another occasion in the same patient, what about normal neutrophils but low lymphocytes prese
Neutrophils: Both conditions are acute inflammatory conditions and would cause this picture- high neutrophils and low lymphocytes. This is what is known as a left shift and is commonly seen. Although an autoimmune process may be an underlying cause this specific WBC reaction is not an indication of autoimmunity. ...Read more
Depends on situation: Part of the bodies mechanism for deciding when to breathe is controlled by co2 sensors in the main blood vessels. In some medical conditions (like copd), when excess oxygen is given to patients & drops the co2 level, their sensors stop the automatic breathing cycle until it builds back up. ...Read more
