Doctor insights on:
Here are some...: Both are renal replacement therapy. But hemofiltration is usually used in intensive care setting for acute kidney injury hoping to have a recovery, after which patients can get rid of it. In contrast, dialysis (hemodialysis) is chiefly used in an outpatient setting for patients with chronic kidney disease, who are waiting for a renal transplant or as the permanent renal replacement therapy.
Here are some...: Of course, a 400-letter space could not cover the needed info differentiating hemofiltration & hemodialysis for either patients or researchers/academics. However, you gain a glimpse of difference in the link at http://pkdclinic. Blogspot. Com/2011/10/difference-between-hemodialysis-and. Html. Best wish. ..
Here are some...: These 2 terms have been used to describe the blood circulation into/through the kidneys. Hemoperfusion denotes blood flow into kidneys through big renal ateries and hemofiltration denotes blood flow further circulating to smaller arterioles into/through glomeruli (microfilters) and onwards where the wanted and unwanted wastes exchanged so to adjust water and electrolyte balance and others.
Few differences: In short.....hemofiltration in acute kidney injuries, mostly in ICUs to treat multiple organ dysfunctions or sepsis...the waste products and water removed bu convection, no dialysate used....in hemodialysis solute movements governed by diffusion, dialysate used....hemodialysis for chronic kidney diseases....chronic renal replacement therapy. Sometimes hemofiltration is used with hemodialysis
Hemofiltration: It is excellent and prevents millions from dying of kidney failure. But a transplant is much better. Trust you are signed up to be a donor unless you are the one with the renal failure.
Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?
Coblation: Understand, these treatments are low (not zero) risk, but for what purpose? Contained herniation means that there is no pressure on the nerves, and the disc is simply not in a "normal" location within the disc space. Study? Fine. These haven't worked except temporarily in the lumbar spine. I would be pessimistic. Maximize mckenzie pt. Not heat/us/tens as they are useless. If no other option, fine.
Complete your Q: Incompelete Question. Complication of Untreated which disease?
Uterine Rupture: The most common complications are a failed vbac & need for vaginal bypass (c-section). The most serious are uterine dehiscence (separation of the uterine scar) or rupture. This can lead to catastrophic results with hemorrhage, emergency surgery, hysterectomy, and fetal loss. Major point - please vbac in a hospital where your OB can keep you safe and have access to immediate surgery if needed.See 2 more doctor answers
Short and long term: There are both short and long term complications of tpn. Short term complications include infections, and imbalance of electrolytes, fluid status and blood glucose levels. Long term TPN can result in loss of IV access and also liver injury and cirrhosis. If you remain on TPN for more than 2-3 months, you should be evaluated at an intestine failure center which may consider intestine transplant.See 1 more doctor answer
Discuss w/ Retina MD: The most common complication from a vitrectomy is progression of cataract. At your age of 40, that may not be a major factor. Other risks that occur less than 5% of the time are retinal detachment, and bleeding. Post-operative infections from vitrectomies are rare. Depending on what the underlying condition is that you have, there may be a risk of disease progression and need for further surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
ESR is a marker of: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a marker of inflammation, thus high inflammatory processes cause ESR to be higher. Infections, cancers, uncontrolled rheumatologic diseases, and endovascular inflammation (i.e. Arteritis) are examples. Thus, elevated ESR values suggest inflammatory conditions which should be sought and treated. Esr is not a complication, but a marker! Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Dehydration: Cvs = recurring attacks of intense nausea, vomiting and sometimes abdominal pain and/or headaches or migraines. This can lead to dehydration, nutritional deficits, high blood pressure during episodes, or damage to the mucosa of the esophagus (i.e. Mallory weiss tear).See 1 more doctor answer
Impetigo: Impetigo typically isn't dangerous, but complications can sometimes occur. For example, scarring, cellulitis- this potentially serious infection affects the tissues underlying your skin and eventually may spread to your lymph nodes and into the bloodstream. Left untreated, cellulitis can quickly become life-threatening, also one of the types of bacteria that cause impetigo can damage your kidneys.
Mononucleosis: Complications are not uncommon and may be more serious than the disease itself. They can include spleen enlargement, liver disease and jaundice. Blood disorders, myocarditis, meningitis, encephalitis and guillain-barre syndrome, and significant tonsil swelling.See 1 more doctor answer
Complications: Too many ways to get to understand diabetes and its complications. There are many very readable articles on the web that you should read. It also would not hurt to have your doctor refer you to a diabetes educator. Please note -- your goal is to get rid of your diabetes long before complications set in.
