Diseases of the urinary tract blockages such as stones, tumors, and also causes narrowing of the kidney failure. Kidney failure can also be caused by autoimmune disorders, such as lupus erythematosus. Of the many types of disease-causing, most causes of diabetes mellitus. According to Budiman, 45 percent of sufferers of kidney failure caused by diabetes mellitus, 28 percent by high blood pressure, glomerulonephritis by 9 percent, and 18 percent of other
According to Buzzle (2012), some common complaints from the patients after the surgery are headache, vomiting, prolonged pain, nausea and more. This is because patients underwent change in their body chemistry during the process which causes the body system to react negatively to the outcome. Another reason is that the process of the surgery requires the use of Anesthesia, which is a temporary state of one’s unconsciousness and this is very risky as Anesthesia is responsible for 34 deaths in United States annually reported by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (Cherney, 2014). The second side-effect of
Cardiovascular stress related to pregnancy, labour and delivery may induce various degrees of cardiac failure in pregnants with cardiac diseases (2). A systolic pulmonary artery pressure of above 50 mmHg is associated with cardiac complications during pregnancy as functional status worsens more rapidly in pregnant patients with mitral valve stenosis. Cardiac decompensation and pulmonary oedema may occur at any time during the second or third trimester. Fluid restriction, diuretics, and control of atrial fibrillation are basic measures that can prevent pulmonary congestion (2). Safe use of NPPV and regional anaesthesia combination for caesarean section have previously described with several case reports in patients with respiratory failure due to kyphoscoliosis, neuromuscular diseases, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia and non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema (3-5).
Sleep Apnea and Heart Failure Notwithstanding the various landmarks we have achieved in health care advancement, heart failure (HF) continues to be on the rise. Nationally, nearly 5 million people suffer from this deadly disease (Dulak, 2005). An effort to help reverse this trend has led many to explore the relationship between HF and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Large prospective studies have found obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to be a contributing or an exacerbating factor for cardiovascular disease such as HF. However, the majority of us are oblivious to this fact.
A PILOT STUDY TO EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION ON DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY INTRODUCTION The incidence of diabetes mellitus is increasing at an alarming rate both nationally and worldwide. Diabetes is a major health concern and is associated with progressive chronic complications leading to premature mortality and high morbidity (1). Diabetic Neuropathy is the most common chronic complication of diabetes mellitus affecting up to 60 - 70%-of patients, with up to 50% of neuropathic patients experiencing painful symptoms (2). Symptoms range from mild tingling sensations to deep-seated lacinating or severe unremitting pain with night time exacerbations. Epidemiologic studies suggest that the prevalence of diabetic neuropathy
The aged people are more prone to heart diseases including men. Examples of heart diseases include; heart failure, coronary artery diseases, congenital heart diseases etc. the causes of heart diseases include heredity, excessive smoking and weight gain, lack of rest, diabetes mellitus, sedentary lifestyle etc. To a greater extent, most heart diseases are preventable and the people at risk of having this disease include; heavy smokers, fat people, people that does not exercise and those that perform stressful activities, diabetic people, familial tendency etc. The nurse plays her roles in reducing and preventing
Hypertension occurs in ∼50% of renal transplant and almost all cardiac transplant patients. Hyperuricemia may lead to worsening of gout, increased P-glycoprotein activity, and hypercholesterolemia. Nephrotoxicity occurs in the majority of patients and is the major reason for cessation or modification of therapy. Combined use of calcineurin inhibitors and glucocorticoids is particularly diabetogenic. Especially at risk are obese patients, African-American or Hispanic transplant recipients, or those with a family history of type II diabetes or
Approximately 100,000 heart valve replacements are performed each year in the U.S. It is estimated that patients requiring heart valve replacements will be tripled from 290,000 in 2003 to 850,000 by 2050 (Yacoub and Takkenberg 2005). It is estimated that 5 million patients in India are suffering from heart valve disease and every year 50, 000 new patients are diagnosed with heart valve disease. Heart valves may become impaired either due to tightening of the valve preventing forward flow of blood which
High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs when your blood pressure increases to unhealthy levels. Your blood pressure measurement takes into account how quickly blood is passing through your veins and the amount of resistance the blood meets while it’s pumping. Hypertension is quite common. In fact, 75 million American are living with the condition. Hypertension may develop over the course of several years.
According to Life issues Institute the DWDA records show that 455 people have requested lethal drugs from their physician and 292 people have died from using them. The yearly numbers continue to rise, beginning with 16 deaths in 1997, increasing to 38 in 2005, and reaching 46 deaths in 2006 (Enouen). On the other hand, Others State criminalized this action, and the states’ rules consider the people who helped terminally ill people to suicide as criminals, it also for those who help people to commit suicide even if they are their doctors. This case has been a big concern for many people whether if this action should be legalized or not. This research paper will provide a discussion on the advantages and the disadvantages of euthanasia
Paints often develop difficulty breathing, cough, and wheezing. The pancreas is also frequently damaged in cystic fibrosis, which leads to recurrent pancreatitis, abdominal pain, diabetes, and malabsorption of nutrients. Patients that do not receive treatment typically progress and develop end-stage lung and pancreatic disease that may require organ transplantation. Due to the importance of this condition,
Type 2 diabetes is an important risk factor for heart failure and is common in patients with heart failure. The objective of the study was to examine all-cause mortality in relation to weight status in patients with type 2 diabetes hospitalized for decompensated heart failure. The Worcester Heart Failure Study included adults admitted with acute heart failure to all metropolitan Worcester medical centers in 1995 and 2000. The weight status of 1644 patients with diabetes was categorized using body mass index calculated from height and weight when patients were admitted. Sixty-five percent of patients were overweight or obese and 3% were underweight.
Usually a life threatning arythima develops in a Person with a pre-existing heart condition such as: coronary artery disease, heart attack, or electrical problems in the heart. sudden cardiac arrest is an emergency, a person having sudden cardiac arrest needs to be treated with a defribilator on the spot , this device sends an electrical shock and can restore get the heart back to its originally beat .Ssudden cardiac arrest is the main cause of death in adults over the age of fourty years old in the united states . Nine out of ten victims die, brain death and death start to happen within four minutse after cardiac arrest. victims chances
1.Congestive Heart Failure also known as (heart failure) is a life threatening condition. Heart Failure is caused when someone has a weak heart. It usually happens when the bodies blood pump to the heart is not pumping blood to the heart correctly. 2.Heart failure symptoms can include shortness of breath while sleeping or walking. Symptoms can show signs of chest pain or anxiety from stress.
Heart failure is a health condition affecting millions of people worldwide. Heart failure readmissions for healthcare agencies continues to be an area of concern due to the cost associated with each readmission. Readmissions to the hospital for heart failure is tied to reimbursement and financial penalties. Developing a plan to combat readmission is a difficult task. Therefore, an phenomena of interest is to investigate how a comprehensive heart failure educational follow- up program will aid in decreasing hospital readmissions within 30 days of discharge?
