It can also happen to due kidney diseases. They are three kinds of Metabolic alkalosis, 1) Hypocloermic alkalosis is caused by an extreme lack or loss of chloride, from prolonged vomiting. 2) Hypokelemic alkalosis, which is caused by the kidneys response to an extreme loss or lack of potassium. This can happen from taking diuretics.
Dialysis is not only expensive, but also rough on patients and it is only a temporary solution. Essentially, since dialysis filters the blood through a machine, the patient is stuck living to that machine until there's an available organ. Due to the advances in medicine, kidney transplantation is the best option for the patient. Not only is it reliable, causing very few complications, it can help return the patient to their normal life. However, the lack of kidneys available for transplant caused 50,000 deaths worldwide.
Dialysis basically acts as an artificial kidney by filtering the blood of the patients on it. Dialysis can be both a good and a bad thing. The good in it is works just like a kidney would for a temporary fix, the bad is that sessions last three hours, several times a week. Dialysis is very harsh on the patient’s bodies, especially the ones that become dependent on it. It basically drains their bodies and causes them to become very weak and most of them aren’t able to work anymore.
The kidneys of the fetal pig can be located on both sides of the spine behind the abdominal organs. The kidneys’ are a vital part in the process of removing urine from the body. The path that urine takes to exit the body is very specific. First, the urine is in the kidney. Next, the urine goes into the ureters, followed by the bladder and urethra before exiting.
The vein used is usually in the hand or arm but may also be in the neck or chest. The nurse puts bags of fluid on a silver metal pole. Fluid flows from the bag through a tube to a machine called a pump. The tube from the bag goes through the pump, then to the tube that is in the vein. This pump can make a noise which sounds like a beep.
As regards the first aspect, it happens that in hemolytic uremic syndrome the blood within the capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body, begins to coagulate in an abnormal way. When red blood cells pass through the capillaries clogged, they are punched from one side and broken. (Hemo-blood + lysis-destruction). The second
Hyponatremia may happen because of an excess of water, which is more common or loss of Na. If sodium level was low, water level in the body will rise and this will lead to swelling of the cells. In addition, Dilution of urine occurs in the thick ascending limb of loop of Henle by re-absorption of solutes by Na-K-2Cl transporter, in the distal convoluted tubule by NaCl transporter and in the collecting tubule by absence of ADH. Dysfunction in these steps maximum amount of urine that can be excreted and this will causes hyponatremia.
The digestive system is responsible for chemically and mechanically breaking down food and includes organs such as, mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, rectum, anus, and additional accessory organs. These organs all aid in the breakdown of food. Food is broken down mechanically by chewing and churning in the stomach, and chemically by acidic enzymes in the stomach and in the small intestine which receives enzymes from the pancreas that are specifically designed for the breakdown of nutrients. Once the food and nutrients are broken down, the excretory system removes whatever the body decides is waste by filtering blood in the nephrons of the kidneys and turning it into urine which is then collected in the bladder and removed from the body when the bladder is
Approximately 500,000 people in the US have PKD and is the fourth leading cause of kidney failure. PKD can cause cysts to grow in the liver and in other organs; i.e. the heart and blood vessels in the brain. These complications assist doctors in distinguishing PKD from mostly harmless cysts that can form on kidneys later in life.
With the advent of the society, the healthcare system has been one of the main beneficiaries as governments embark on improving the healthcare realm so as to ensure better living standards. The modern day healthcare system is one that aims at eliminating any form of healthcare service limitation through the increment of healthcare dispensation outlets. As opposed to the past the medical field has been stratified to accommodate different types of healthcare needs. The diversity in healthcare facilities enables the people to seek the appropriate healthcare treatment in the right places hence making the process faster and more efficient. This in the long run has ensured an efficient dispensation program achieving better results and satisfaction
Chronic Disease The report I choose to read on the CDC website was about arthritis, the effects of arthritis and what the public is doing to help the people who are suffering from arthritis, understand the causes of arthritis on the body and what can be done to help aid the body from any shortcomings a person might face because of arthritis. By reading the article on arthritis I found out that many people are effected by arthritis and that arthritis does not only effect elderly people but people of all ages; according to the CDC two thirds of the population that suffer from arthritis are younger then 65, which means that arthritis can effect any person no matter how young they are. The article also helped me realize that while there are many
Chronic kidney disease[CKD] is defined as persistent kidney damage accompanied by reduction in glomerular filtration rate[GFR] and the presence of albuminuria. The prevalence of CKD has steadily increase over the past two decades, and was reported to
What is a transplant? Transplants occur when you have a big disease in one or more parts of your body (organs, tissues, parts from legs, etc…) and that makes that the part that is bad is not capable of doing it functions, so it is taken the damaged organ off of your body and it is replace by a new organ that in this case can do their functions. What is a kidney transplant? A kidney transplant is done when the kidney of a patient start to go worse and finally it becomes into a big renal disease so there is necessary to be a transplant so the patient continues living and can continue with his life in normal conditions.
