Sodium electrolytes in the body become diluted, causing cells to swell. In severe cases, the kidneys can’t keep up with the resulting volumes of diluted urine. Water intoxication then occurs, possibly causing headache, vomiting and in rare instances, seizures or death. But that’s a pretty extreme situation. On a normal, day-to-day basis, maintaining a well hydrated system is easy to manage for those of us fortunate enough to have access to clean drinking water.
It is approved that diuretics have such side effects as electrolyte abnormalities, but they are not manifested in 100% of cases. For example potassium loss occurs when patient have pre – existing hypokalaemia or have high dose and long-term diuretics treatment. (J A Clayton,2006) 6. List the 3 diuretics that can cause the electrolyte abnormality. Thiazides: bendroflumethiazide, hydrochlorothiazide.
To get a specific medication of asthma or cure complications associated with allergic rhinitis, patients need to consult an Ear-Nose-Throat specialist. Diagnosing Allergic Rhinitis To know if one is affected with allergic rhinitis requires a concordance between the person’s family history of the allergic symptoms and clinical diagnostic tests. One of the most common ways is doing a nasal examination to look out for any visible signs of irritation. Other methods
The increase in sodium reabsorption raises the serum osmolarity and stimulates the release the antidiuretic hormone ADH from the posterior pituitary gland. ADH works by increasing water reabsorption by the kidneys, thus further increasing blood volume. (Brown & Edwards, 2013). Decreased blood flow to the skin results in the patient feeling cool and clammy (Brown & Edwards, 2013). This can be seen in Mr Jensen.
This will lead to a substantial decrease in venous return thus affecting the preload, stroke volume and cardiac output of the patient (amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle in one minute). If we take the blood pressure equation into consideration (Blood pressure= cardiac output x peripheral vascular resistance), we can now expect a decrease in blood pressure due to the decreased cardiac output (Mistovich, 2009). This will activate the baroreceptor reflex, one of the body's homeostatic mechanisms that helps to maintain blood pressure at nearly constant levels (Coker, Aehlert and Vroman, 2011). Baroreceptor reflex will cause vasoconstriction and cardiac output (namely an increase in heart rate) to try and elevate the blood pressure, but in severe cases of hypovolemia this will not work. Firstly we had to assess the severity of the hemopneumothorax so we assessed for common signs which are chest pain, dyspnea, tachypnea, tachycardia and hypotension.
This lab investigated how differing conditions in water would affect the reflex known as the dive reflex, which was evaluated by measuring heart rate and amplitude of blood flow. The dive reflex is explained as a drop in heart rate and blood flow while the subject is submerged underwater. Bradycardia is the term used to describe the decreased heart rate (HR), and it is advantageous to mammals. Bradycardia helps retain as much oxygen as possible during the submersion in order for muscles to work more effectively. A normal heart rate is 60-100 beats per minute (BPM).
There is a side effect, it can causes severy dehydration which mean it occurs when athlete use or lose more fluid than they take in and their body doesn’t have enough water and other fluids to carry out its normal functions. Like when sportspeople are playing boxing with their partner, they will feel not well in their body because by taking diuretics, it can influence body cannot have enough water to use in their body. As human, we should have enough water in our body so can active in any particular sports. If they don’t replace lost fluids, they will get dehydrated as long as they take diuretics during sports. The others affect of it also can dry athlete’s mouth (Ogbru, 2014, p.4).
Finally, we visited the doctor, and I told him what was going on and he informed me that I suffer from exercise-induced asthma. I was prescribed an inhaler, and I had to use it before I participated in any exercise activity. Asthma snuck up on me, and if I had never gone to the doctor I would have eventually over exerted myself while exercising
How many times have you had an attack? Do you have a cool inhaler?” I roll my eyes each time, but answer with, “Yes I “really” have asthma. I am fortunate enough to have only had an attack twice. I would not say that my breathing problem is “cool”, but I guess I have a “cool” inhaler.” Asthma is a condition that should be taken seriously. Often people think that it is a made up disorder.
Some causes include obstructive sleep apnea, diseases of the chest, airways and the nerves. There is chronic and acute respiratory acidosis. Chronic occurs over a long period of time. This can lead to a stable health state, because your kidneys increase body chemicals and it helps
They relax the muscles of the airways. These medications are often combined with an inhaled corticosteroid to improve asthma control. This means two areas of asthma can be treated at the same time. The bronchodilator widens the airway making it easier for the patient to breath, and the inhaled steroid reduces and prevents inflammation of the airways. Advair Diskus, Symbicort, and Dulera are three combination inhalers.
It is also said that theophylline may help decrease swelling in the lungs. Theophylline when used stimulates the muscles so that they can relax, which makes the breathing tubes larger that way patients can breathe easier. Similar to the beta-agonist and anticholinergic medications theophylline have a short acting and long acting medication. Short acting theophylline medications last 6-12 hours, while the long acting medication last 24 hours. This medication only comes in tablet form and should be taken at the same time daily.
This RSBI is calculated based on the principle that patients breathing is better when it is deep and slow and worse when it is slow and fast. In order to assess the efficacy of patients respiratory effort RSBI is calculated from the ratio of tidal volume to the respiratory rate. If the respiratory rate is 12 and the tidal volume is 400 RSBI=12/0.4=30. An RSBI less than 80-100 is considered ready for liberation. However, this index should not be the only
After a session, most people will experience greater fluidity in joints, which can improve comfort and reduce injuries. Blood Flow and Circulation Poor circulation results in numerous maladies, including achiness, pain, fatigue, and tense muscles. These kneading motions apply pressure to move blood through various regions of the body. After releasing the pressure, new blood moves in quickly. The pressure also serves to flush out lactic acid from tired muscles.
