How is decreased cardiac output caused by increased fluid volume and decreased fluid volume?

How is decreased cardiac output caused by increased fluid volume and decreased fluid volume?

Stroke volume: Cardiac output is determined by heart rate and volume of blood pumped by heart in each heartbeat (stroke volume). Increased fluid volume increases the stroke volume and therefore cardiac output. Decreased fluid volume decreases the stroke volume and therefore cardiac output. ...Read more

How can decreased cardiac output be caused by either increased fluid volume and decreased fluid volume?

How can decreased cardiac output be caused by either increased fluid volume and decreased fluid volume?

Cardiac output: When systolic dysfunction is present, volume overloading can result in decreased stroke volume and cardiac output. In any cardiac status, decreased intravascular volume will result in decreased cardiac output. ...Read more

How can decreased cardiac output be caused by abnormal fluid volume?

How can decreased cardiac output be caused by abnormal fluid volume?

Overloading: Low cardiac function may not be able to keep up with too much volume and the fluid backs up in places like the lung, neck, abdomen, and legs. Too much volume can overwhelm a borderline heart already weak. When the heart cannot keep up the needed cardiac output (liters per min) and making the pump work harder increasing pressure inside the heart, and dilating the chamber getting into a bad cycle. ...Read more

How can decreased cardiac output be caused by increased fluid volume ?

You have it reverse: Heart rate x stroke volume = cardiac output and thus if stroke volume decreases, cardiac output decreases or if heart rate decreases cardiac output decreases. ...Read more

What are the inspiratory reserve volume, tidal volume. and expiratory reserve volume?

What are the inspiratory reserve volume, tidal volume. and expiratory reserve volume?

Respiratory volumes: Tidal volume is the amount of air you inspire (bring in) with a normal breath. Usually around 500ml. Inspiratory reserve volume is the max amount you can suck in after a normal inspiration. Expiratory reserve volume is the max amount you can push out after a normal expiration. Vital capacity is the most air you can breathe out after taking the deepest breath in. ...Read more

Do glomerulonephritis experienced decrease fluid urine output?

Not necessarily: Glomerulonephritis is a condition affecting the kidneys. Urine output need not be low. Talk to your nephrologist especially if there is a recent change in urine output. ...Read more

What does large fluid collection with an air fluid level mean, in pelvis of male, ?

What does large fluid collection with an air fluid level mean, in pelvis of male, ?

Abscess: The only things that live in the male pelvis are: 1) bladder and 2) rectum. There should be no fluid collection outside of the bladder (normal), but with gas in it, usually represents an abscess. This usually represents a perforation or fistula from the rectum, or post-operative leak after rectal surgery. Depending on the cause, the treatment can be drainage through the rectum or open surgery ...Read more

Dehydration + symptoms from inadequate fluid intake. Level of intake that resolves symptoms causes excessive urination, leading to dehydration. Ideas?

Dehydration: Please see your doctor who will take your medical history, examine you, and order labs. It is important to find out what is contained in a 24 hour urine collection as well as blood work. If there are problems they can be resolved. ...Read more

Can low sodium intake (<1500mg/day) lead to fluid retention?

Can low sodium intake (<1500mg/day) lead to fluid retention?

No, not low sodium.: High (not low) sodium intake will lead to fluid retention. If you are retaining fluid and following a low salt diet, there may be other causes that need to be investigated, such as kidney, heart, liver, thyroid health. Malnutrition can also lead to fluid retention as can blood clots or leaky veins. Check with your doctor who can examine you and order the appropriate tests. ...Read more

Blood debris in amniotic fluid normal?

Blood debris in amniotic fluid normal?

Based on setting: During pregnancy, it is not unusual to see "debris" in the amniotic fluid during ultrasound. This is likely related to vernix - a cheesy substane produced by the baby. On the other hand, bloody amniotic fluid that is actually seen can be normal, or it can be a sign of a complication called placental abruption. In either case, this should be clarified by the ob/gyn involved. ...Read more

Can increase sugar intake result in higher urine volume?

Can increase sugar intake result in higher urine volume?

It could: If you have diabetes or glucose intolerance, a high sugar intake may cause spilling of glucose into the urine. This would cause additional urine to be made. I this case it would act like a diuretic, resulting in a larger urine volume. Usually thirst accompanies this phenomenon. ...Read more

Morphine helps redistribute blood volume in pulmonary edema. How? And is it causing any reabsorbtion of fluid?

Morphine helps redistribute blood volume in pulmonary edema.  How? And is it causing any reabsorbtion of fluid?

In theory it works: As a vasodilator. By increasing peripheral venous blood volume, there is less venous blood returning back to the pulmonary circulation and thereby decrease the formation of pulmonary edema. ...Read more

Sperm volume low; is there any way to increase the volume/amount? Low sperm volume when ejaculating.

Sperm volume low; is there any way to increase the volume/amount? Low sperm volume when ejaculating.

Low : Low semen volume may be a hormonal issue (low testosterone), or may rarely be due to retrograde ejaculation where part of the ejaculate 'shoots backwards' into the bladder instead of out the normal way. Diabetics and men on high blod pressure medications are at more risk of retrograde ejaculation. See a reproductive endocrinologist if you are concerned, especially if you are trying to conceive. ...Read more
