Fluid Volume Deficit
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can decreased cardiac output be caused by either increased fluid volume and decreased 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Morphine helps redistribute blood volume in pulmonary edema. How? And is it causing any reabsorbtion of fluid?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
