What Is The Rate Of Survival For People Who Develop Septic Shock
It depends: Survival rates for any cancer are very dependent on a number of variables. With astrocytomas, patient age, tumor location, pathological features (anaplastic versus low-grade, presence of necrosis, 1p/19q deletions, etc.), complications from treatment (radiation or surgery), and functional status all seem to affect prognosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: On the cause of the pancreatitis and the severity. There are predictive models that give you an idea of the expected mortality. ARDS per se is not factored in, oxygenation is. Other parameters include fluid requirement, degree of anemia, liver enzyme changes ...Etc. The mortality can be as high as 90% or as low as 10%. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
About 70%: The chances of surviving sepsis (severe sepsis & septic shock) varies; overall, about 70% of patients will survive, and this number can improve with immediate recognition & treatment. The number of organ systems affected is a big factor--the more organ systems that are failing, chances for survival get worse. http://www.survivingsepsis.org/pages/default.aspx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
100%: 50% at 3-5 years. Low occurrence of this problem. ...Read more
Pancreatic cancer: Pancreatic cancer is often found after it has already spread outside the pancreas. For all patients together, the one year survival is 20% and the five-year rate is 6%. However, if surgery is able to be performed and the tumor has not spread outside the pancreas, the five-year survival could be as much as 25%. Talk to your oncologist, who can give you more precise information. Good luck. ...Read more
Variable: It is too variable to predict; it could be days or years. ...Read more
Good with treatment: Without treatment, severe combined immunodeficiency is lethal in infancy. If treated with a bone marrow transplantation or similar immune reconstitution, before severe infections occur, life expectancy is the same as normal individuals. Adults with scid treated in childhood have their own children. Poor organ function as a result of infections leaving scars might limit life expectancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: There are many factors that survival depends on. These include other medical conditions, rapidity to treatment, the specific pathogen causing the sepsis, ability to use certain medications (e.g. Allergy restrictions), social history (smoking, drugs), etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diseased: Electrical conduction system. Age likely cause. Non diabetics get this too. ...Read more
Prognosis worse: Older people have less ability to heal rapidly, and may well be compromised due to medications and co-morbidities. The mortality rate is far higher, and recovery potential lower as aging proceeds. In fact, many older patients do succumb terminally to infections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Skin problem: This is a skin disorder. I recommend asking a dermatologist this question. ...Read more
Potentially curable.: Stage IIb Hodgkin's Lymphoma is considered advanced but very susceptible to chemotherapy and radiation, thus potentially curable. The 5 year survival rate for stage II is 90%. Having "B" symptoms can lower this excellent prognosis, but with more aggressive treatment, this is curable. ...Read more
The incidence of AML: ...increases with age, and this poses a challenge because older patients are more likely have difficulties withstanding the side effects of standard chemotherapy treatments. The response rate of the disease to treatment is not so much determined by the age of the patient as it is by the type of AML, and it's genetic and histologic features. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lower than ever: The prognosis for wegener's is actually fairly good with the newer therapies. If the absence of severe kidney or neurologis involvement most patients do well. ...Read more
Yes: Yes there is certainly a chance for recovery. In fact most patients with sepsis recover. The real chance of recovery depends on all kinds of details, including any underlying medical problems, kinds of organ failure, etc and should be discussed with the doctors involved in the care of the patient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I do not know.: I wouldn't presume to know, as I have never experienced it. I would wish for anyone who is dying, that the experience be as peaceful as possible. Take care. ...Read more
