  • diagnosis
  • It is not enough to make the diagnosis of the low-cardiac-output state and it should NEVER be the final diagnosis - the underlying cause/trigger must be found and treated if possible. (psychiatryadvisor.com)
  • decreased cardiac output a nursing diagnosis accepted by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, defined as a state in which inadequate blood is pumped by the heart to meet the metabolic demands of the body. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • organ
  • Sometimes, sepsis , your body's response to blood infections that can lead to a dangerous drop in blood pressure and organ failure, can cause high cardiac output. (webmd.com)
  • patient's
  • Factors that could lead to changes in a patient's functional capacities because of decreased cardiac output might include physical exercise of a type or intensity that the patient cannot tolerate because of diminished oxygen supply, ingestion of large meals that place an added workload on the heart, obesity, retention of fluid (edema), hypovolemia or hypervolemia, emotional stress, and smoking. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • This invention relates to electrodes, or catheters, and, more particularly, to unipolar electrodes adapted for use in combination with cardiac pacers for low power drain stimulation of a patient's heart. (google.com)
  • sepsis
  • Low output also could happen after you've lost too much blood, had a severe infection called sepsis , or had severe heart damage. (webmd.com)
  • Urine
  • urinary output the amount of urine secreted by the kidneys. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Dopamine HCl may also increase urine flow in patients whose output is within normal limits and thus may be of value in reducing the degree of pre-existing fluid accumulation. (rxlist.com)
  • High
  • High output also can happen when your body lacks enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells, a condition called anemia . (webmd.com)
  • objective
  • Throughout the history of development of cardiac pacing systems, a foremost objective has been to utilize the available power in the implanted device to the maximum possible extent. (google.com)
  • Our objective was to assess cardiac function associated with metabolic depression in the hibernating vs. active states in free-ranging Scandinavian brown bears. (forskningsdatabasen.dk)
  • disease
  • Spontaneous echo contrast was present in all cardiac chambers in all seven bears during hibernation, despite the absence of atrial arrhythmias and valvular disease. (forskningsdatabasen.dk)
  • changes
  • In particular, in critically ill patients, TTE is daily used to track changes in cardiac output, which are assessed from relative changes in the velocity-time integral (VTI) of the left ventricular outflow tract. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Nevertheless, such changes in cardiac output are sometimes of small amplitude. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Redistribution of blood flow parallels these changes so that an increase in cardiac output is accompanied by an increase in mesenteric and renal blood flow. (rxlist.com)
