What Is The Tpn Energy Ratio For Chf Patients
Congestive heart failure, otherwise known simply as heart failure, is a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened. It may be receiving inadequate blood flow, its valves might be malfunctioning or the heart muscle might have thickened or stiffened. As a result, the heart, which is a pump, cannot supply the body with sufficent oxygen and nutrients. When the left side of the heart is damaged, fluid builds up in the lungs, which results in difficulty breathing. When the right side of the heart is affected, fluid builds up in the extremities and abdomen, resulting in swelling of the legs and poor absorption of nutrients due to ...Read more
CKD CHF patient on fluid 1L restriction BUN 53, Creatinine 2, going worse when on lasix (furosemide). at what BUN am I too dehydrated/cause for high BUN/C ratio?
Fluid shifts: When a person lies flat, blood that has pooled in the legs and abdomen (from gravity) returns to the heart. The extra volume typically causes no problems for healthy persons. In pts with heart failure (chf), however, the failing heart cannot pump the extra fluid so the pressures in the chambers increase. Blood backs up into the lungs causing trouble breathing. This is relieved by sitting up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Patients with CHF are prone to developing fluid overload within the lungs. During times of fluid overload when legs are swollen, lying prone can increase the amount of fluid from the legs to reenter the bloodstream and traveled back towards the heart, with heart failure the heart is not able to handle this increase of fluid return and fluid builds up in the lungs, causing shortness of breath, ...Read more
Restrict salt: Salt intake causes fluid retention. Heart failure patients need to monitor the amount of salt in the foods they consume. The salt intake should be no more than 2-4 grams daily, less if someone has severe failure. Fluid intake also needs to be restricted to 1.5 liters per day or less, depending on the doctor's recommendation. ...Read more

Total parenteral nutrition is the term used to describe a nutritional formula that is administered through the veins. When the digestive system cannot be used due to inflammation, blockage, or absorption problems, individuals will receive all nutrition via an intravenous catheter. This is usually not the preferred method of delivering nutrition long term and is ...Read more
Heart failure is a complex set of conditions in which the heart "fails" to pump a normal amount of blood with each beat. This can be due to poor squeezing function (systolic heart failure) and/or a stiff heart incapable of filling normally (diastolic heart failure). Common symptoms include swelling and trouble breathing, particularly when ...Read more
