What are the abg results of a patient with dengue hemorrhagic fever?

What are the abg results of a patient with dengue hemorrhagic fever?

Depends: If there is sepsis, the oxygen goes down and there could be acidosis (low ph). Otherwise, the carrying capacity of oxygen goes down due to lysis of cells but the oxygen seen, the saturation, may be the same. If there is fever, a person breaths faster and the ph goes up and co2 goes down. In short, there is nothing specific attributable to dengue fever in abg.

Hemorrhagic Fever (Definition)

Hemorrhagic fever is a condition in which a person has an infection causing fever, bleeding into the skin, internal bleeding, dropping blood pressure, shock, and death. These viral infections (usually found in tropical climates) include dengue fever, ...Read more

How can dengue hemorrhagic fever cause low bp?

How can dengue hemorrhagic fever cause low bp?

Dengue: There are many mechanisms by which this could occur, including severe anemia induced by the intravascular hemolysis, renal failure, vascular collapse, dehydration and other mechanisms. You need to get a medical education to understand this fully, and don't think that this is place in which to obtain that. Good luck.

I had dengue hemorrhagic fever 5 years ago & my lymph nodes swelled. Two have stayed swollen, squishy. Dr says it's normal, checked. How?

Residual inflammatio: This is possibly scarring which has lead to the non-painful and swollen lymph nodes. If you have had this examined, and feel confident with the answers you received, then this is something to simply watch. If they change in any way, they should be evaluated.

Difference between dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever?

Difference between dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever?

Quite similar: Both conditions are caused by dengue virus. One is a milder form but the second one is more serious due to development of very low platelet counts which can lead to bleeding (that is why it is called hemorragic) and occasional fatalities due to shock (fluid leaks) or bleeding.

What is treatment for dengue hemorrhagic fever?

Supportive care: "supportive care, " meaning there's no specific treatment against the virus. You focus on treating the complications of the illness until it resolves. This can require hospitalization, sometime in an intensive care unit.

Pathophysiology of dengue hemorrhagic fever, what is this?

Dengue Fever: Hemorrhagic fever is the most serious manifestation of dengue fever. It can lead to circulatory failure and shock. In it there's a plasma leakage syndrome with increased vascular permeability, platelet count less than 100, 000, fever lasing 2-7 days, and spontaneous bleeding with microvascular fragility. There may be small bruises (petechiae) in the skin all the way to profuse bleeding.

Can a person who had dengue hemorrhagic fever donate blood?

Can a person who had dengue hemorrhagic fever donate blood?

American Red Cross: Recommends deferring blood donations for 6 months if you have had Dengue Fever. “In most countries, donors who have been infected with dengue virus are deferred for periods of up to 6 months or even longer if they have received blood transfusions.” REF: https://www.

Is there a relation between kawasaki disease and dengue hemorrhagic fever?

No: Dengue hemorrhagic fever is caused by one of four different dengue viruses and it is transmitted by mosquitoes. The cause of kawasaki disease remains unknown. The symptoms and course of the diseases is also very different.

How does dengue hemorrhagic fever lead to muscle pain?

How does dengue hemorrhagic fever lead to muscle pain?

Good question: I don't think the exact mechanism is known, but the body's immune response to the virus is responsible for most of the symptoms, . Including the "bone-breaking" pain. In the hemorrhagic fever form, the prior exposure has already created antibodies against the virus and their levels are higher, leading to the bleeding complications.

If I have had dengue fever before, should I avoid traveling to countries with prevalent dengue as a rule to avoid hemorrhagic fever?

If I have had dengue fever before, should I avoid traveling to countries with prevalent dengue as a rule to avoid hemorrhagic fever?

Yes: Dengue is caused by any one of four related viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. Recovery from infection by one provides lifelong immunity against that particular serotype. However, cross-immunity to the other serotypes after recovery is only partial and temporary. Subsequent infections by other serotypes increase the risk of developing severe dengue.

How does thrompocytopenia result in Hemorrhage? . What's the Main role of plateles that gets hampered due to dengue fever?

See below: Platelets are the first line of defense in plugging any hole in a blood vessel. Microscopic holes happen with natural activity. Lack of platelets allows bleeding. Thrombocytopeina in Dengue occurs to due a combination of issues. You may consult this site for information. Http://www. Who. Int/csr/resources/publications/dengue/012-23.pdf

Hi. I'm a G6PD patient. And last 2 days ive been suspected with dengue fever. Now my whole body are felt itchy. Is that confirm dengue?

Hi. I'm a G6PD patient. And last 2 days ive been suspected with dengue fever. Now my whole body are felt itchy. Is that confirm dengue?

Itching?: Itching can happen with or without dengue, so itching does not confirm nor deny dengue. Dengue testing is of 2 types: antibody testing or PCR testing. Antibody testing looks for one's immune system's response to the virus (one's body makes antibodies against the virus). PCR testing looks for actual pieces of virus material, such as the RNA genetic material in the virus.

What's the chance of getting dengue fever after the bite?

Dengue Presentation: Dengue presents clinically in less than 20% of cases. The challenge is if you do not show an active disease process and at some point in the future you are bit again, there is a high risk for developing dengue hemorrhagic fever which can be fatal. Lab test are available to determine your exposure to dengue
