Increase BP: These hormones will all tend to increase blood pressure, with Epinephrine having the most marked effect and erythropoetin the smallest. The effects will be more marked if baseline BP is elevated, or if on a high salt diet. Aldosterone also tends to lower potassium which can be a clue that the body is producing too much. ...Read more
Can an intake of water balance sodium intake so pressure is not exerted on the arterial walls and can prevent hypertension?
That's not right: The reason sodium raises BP is because it draws water in (by osmosis) and expands the circulating blood volume. People who do not have hypertension aren't harmed - the excess sodium and water is cleared by the kidneys. Those who are sensitive have an excessive rise in bp. ...Read more
Why the risk of brain edema increase as the duration of the operation increase on an open skull surgery?
Morphine helps redistribute blood volume in pulmonary edema. How? And is it causing any reabsorbtion of fluid?
Yo-yo BP: When you're not dieting, your BP will rise and when you're dieting, your BP will fall. ...Read more
What does my MRI results mean when it says causing mass effect on the anatral aspect of the spinal cord; however, adequate amount of cerebral fluid?
See below: Anatral means anterior (this is likely voice recognition software mistake as radiologists dictate their report) and it most likely means - mass effect on anterior aspect of the spinal canal, but enough cerebral spinal fluid is present - meaning no spinal canal stenosis is present. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Double water loading: Double water loading means doubling water intake in a certain time frame. Normal response to this maneuver is suppression of vasopressin secretion and thus the kidney is released from vasopressin water retention effect. A diuretic aims to increase sodium excretion. Double water loading in an other wise normal individual should enhance water excretion. If dehydrated, water retention could occur ...Read more
Not Drops: When collecting fluid during a lumbar puncture, we don't exactly count drops of fluid. Rather, we count CCs (cubic centimenters). Typically there are 4 tubes. We collect only 1-2 cc in the first and 2-6 in the rest. The amount collected depends on the purpose of the lumbar puncture. Decreasing fluid pressure, having enough fluid for many lab tests are 2 reasons to draw off larger amounts. ...Read more
What can lower blood pressure by extracting fluid form the vascular system and decreasing peripheral and pulmona?
Diuretics.: A diuretic is a type of medicine that facilitates passage of fluid out the body through the urinary tract. By increasing urine output, fluid is moved from the cardiovascular system out of the body. This needs to be used carefully in conjunction with your physician because it is not always the correct approach. ...Read more
