Why Ranitidine Given To 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.
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.
None: There are no supplements, other than things that prevent mosquito bites.
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.
Are you kidding?: There is no way we can discuss pathophysiology in the short space allotted. People with homework assignments should go to the library or do their own web searches. We're here to answer clinical questions.
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.
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. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC2713854/

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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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?
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.
Does repeat dengue fever (hemorrhagic) cause vascular damage leading to initiating aortic dissection?
2-7 days: Dengue fever is increasing and is a common cause for fever in travelers returning from the tropics or subtropics. Symptoms develop 3-14 days after mosquito bite. Other symptoms include headache, pain behind eyes, muscle aches, joint pain, rash, and nausea. About 1% progress on to the more worrisome dengue hemorrhagic fever (dhf). If you suspect df see your doctor and avoid use of ibuprofen.See 1 more doctor answer
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
