What Is The Difference Between Ventilation And Perfusion
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. ...Read more
I can't think: of one except hypoventilation may relate to low volume expansion of lungs and bradypnea refers to low rate of respiration,but they are used interchangeably ...Read more
IHD vs CRRT: CRRT is a continuous form of hemodialysis used in critically ill patients who have kidney failure and unstable blood pressure. What most people mean when they use the term "hemodialysis" is intermittent hemodialysis. About 90% of dialysis patients in the U.S. get their blood cleansed and excess fluids removed by HD. Most get their treatment 3x per week and each session lasts 3-4 hrs. ...Read more
A lot: Aneurysm the entire three layers of the blood vessel has enlarged to a substantial degree usually 2-2.5 times normal size- called dilation of the entire blood vessel. Veins can become aneurysmal also. Vasodilation is a term for capillary dilation and low peripheral resistance and has nothing to do with aneurysm. A fluke of the english language. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Drugs for Heart Test: Chemical stress tests are used to diagnose heart artery blockage in people who cannot treadmill exercise. Persantine is injected IV and dilates normal blood vessels more than abnormal ones causing an ischemic defect on a nuclear image. Dobutamine is injected IV and increases the heart rate and contractility with muscle fed by a blocked artery not responding as well as normal muscle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stage of disease: In infarction when blood supply completely cut off the tissue dies as in heat attack with damage to heart muscle , con not be reversed , in ischemia blood supply diminishes ( reduced ) could be reversed no damage yet , this the stage heart attacks could be preventable by proper treatment (s) and intervention. Same with any other organ ...Read more
Verb versus noun: Angiography is the process of performing an x-ray picture (or an image) of a blood vessel by injecting the vessel with an opaque dye. Th dye often contains iodine. An angiogram is the picture of the blood vessel that was taken while performing angiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 ... ...Read more
Cardioversion and pa: Cardioversion is usually a single large shock delivered to the heart during an arrhythmia to stop it and let it restart with a normal rhythm. Pacing is small shocks applied to restore normal timing to the cardiac events, especially when the intrinsic rate/rhythm are too slow. ...Read more
Cause and effect: Atherosclerosis is a process where plaque builds up in arteries due to a variety of factors. When the plaque build up is extensive enough it can restrict blood flow and cause ischemia. Ischemia, which occurs when blood flow is not sufficient to meet the need for blood may result from extensive atherosclerosis. however it is important to note that atherosclerosis usually does not result in ischemia ...Read more
Several: A non invasive ventilator requires a mask, and will help patient breath easier a ventilator requires patient to breath through a tube. Then the patient is very sick & was intubated in order to preserve his life & keep breathing. Nowadays non invasive vents just get almost all the soffistication from big ventilators from hospitals. ...Read more
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 ...Read more
Slightly different: Hyperpnea is the process of taking really deep breaths. Hyperventilation is the process of breathing fast, but also takes into account the volume of the breaths. Ventilation speaks to the body's ability to breath out or eliminate CO2 or metabolic waste. Hyperpnea can contribute to hyperventilation (breathing out more CO2), but you don't have to be hyperpneic in order to hyperventilate. ...Read more
