What are complications of peep in mechanical ventilation?

What are complications of peep in mechanical ventilation?

Many possible: Not just peep-peak and mean pressures also must be considered. High pressure can indicate inappropriately high volumes, leading to volutrauma/ventilator associated lung injury. Increased intrathoracic pressures can impair heart function (decrease preload), impair kidney function (decrease renal blood flow), and contribute to higher intracranial & intra-abdominal pressures. ...Read more

Enuresis: Enuresis refers to bed wetting. Of course, we all wet ourselves as infants so primary (1o) enuresis refers to never having been dry while asleep while secondary enuresis (2o) refers to those who had a period of dryness followed by return of bed wetting. Perhaps your brother sleeps "too" deeply/soundly after alcohol. Check out http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1014762-overview for more ideas. ...Read more

I have cin3 why is my gyno doing a uterine peep test on me is it just procedure?

Treatment for cin 3: When a woman has cin 3 which is severe precancerous cells on the cervix the treatment is a leep procedure. This procedure is done in the office, and with it the abnormal cells are shaved off the cervix. The cure rate is 90-95%. I use numbing medicine when I do it, and most of my patients have minimal to no pain. It takes about 2 weeks for the cervix to heal. Good luck. ...Read more

If my boyfriend peep has a smell to his peep and its yellow  but mines is clear what can b making his peep like that?

Drinks less water?: The color of urine ranges from almost clear to deep yellow. If a person drinks plenty of fluids, the urine is more clear and less yellow. The urine is more dilute, and will have less of a smell. Sometimes, infections, medications, chemical disorders, etc..., can cause special urine odors. For a healthy guy whose never had urine problems, he can try drinking more water to see what happens. ...Read more

Her critical care team should be addressing these issues through medications, volume status, physical therapy and nutritional support. Be patient. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Hot compress for ingrown vaginal pubic hair? Then squeeze for hair I peep through and pull with tweezers? Other ideas ?

Hot compress for ingrown vaginal pubic hair? Then squeeze for hair I peep through and pull with tweezers? Other ideas ?

Ouch!: Try using clippers to clip the hairs around the infected site. Wash the area beforehand with an antibacterial soap like Hibiclens or Betadine. Once the hairs are clipped the ingrown hair will no longer have root support to continue its' growth into skin and will fall out naturally. Please keep the area clean and dry and oh, by the way, take a break from sexual activity until its' healed. ...Read more

Recruitment: By increasing end expiratory pressure, you stent your airways more open and can recruit alveoli for better gas exchange. This is the basis for the classic "pink puffer" variant of copd. ...Read more
