Erythrocyte Volume: Volume of circulating ERYTHROCYTES . It is usually measured by RADIOISOTOPE DILUTION TECHNIQUE.Plasma Volume: Volume of PLASMA in the circulation. It is usually measured by INDICATOR DILUTION TECHNIQUES.Hematocrit: The volume of packed RED BLOOD CELLS in a blood specimen. The volume is measured by centrifugation in a tube with graduated markings, or with automated blood cell counters. It is an indicator of erythrocyte status in disease. For example, ANEMIA shows a low value; POLYCYTHEMIA, a high value.Blood Volume: Volume of circulating BLOOD. It is the sum of the PLASMA VOLUME and ERYTHROCYTE VOLUME.Golgi Apparatus: A stack of flattened vesicles that functions in posttranslational processing and sorting of proteins, receiving them from the rough ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM and directing them to secretory vesicles, LYSOSOMES, or the CELL MEMBRANE. The movement of proteins takes place by transfer vesicles that bud off from the rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus and fuse with the Golgi, lysosomes or cell membrane. (From Glick, Glossary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1990)Cell Size: The quantity of volume or surface area of CELLS.Erythrocytes: Red blood cells.

They are found in all vertebrates and some invertebrates. The number of globin subunits in the hemoglobin quaternary structure differs between species. Structures range from monomeric to a variety of multimeric arrangements.Blood Viscosity: The internal resistance of the BLOOD to shear forces. The in vitro measure of whole blood viscosity is of limited clinical utility because it bears little relationship to the actual viscosity within the circulation, but an increase in the viscosity of circulating blood can contribute to morbidity in patients suffering from disorders such as SICKLE CELL ANEMIA and POLYCYTHEMIA.Hemodilution: Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.Blood Cell Count: The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.Erythrocyte Indices: ERYTHROCYTE size and HEMOGLOBIN content or concentration, usually derived from ERYTHROCYTE COUNT; BLOOD hemoglobin concentration; and HEMATOCRIT. The indices include the mean corpuscular volume (MCV), the mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).Anemia: A reduction in the number of circulating ERYTHROCYTES or in the quantity of HEMOGLOBIN.Osmolar Concentration: The concentration of osmotically active particles in solution expressed in terms of osmoles of solute per liter of solution.

From these two values the blood volume can be calculated by dividing the quantity of injected material by its concentration in the blood at the time of uniform mixing. Generally expressed as cubic centimeters or liters per kilogram of body weight.Polycythemia: An increase in the total red cell mass of the blood. (Dorland, 27th ed)Osmosis: Tendency of fluids (e.g., water) to move from the less concentrated to the more concentrated side of a semipermeable membrane.Chlorides: Inorganic compounds derived from hydrochloric acid that contain the Cl- ion.Erythrocyte Transfusion: The transfer of erythrocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.Osmotic Pressure: The pressure required to prevent the passage of solvent through a semipermeable membrane that separates a pure solvent from a solution of the solvent and solute or that separates different concentrations of a solution. It is proportional to the osmolality of the solution.Hypertonic Solutions: Solutions that have a greater osmotic pressure than a reference solution such as blood, plasma, or interstitial fluid.Hematologic Tests: Tests used in the analysis of the hemic system.Potassium: An element in the alkali group of metals with an atomic symbol K, atomic number 19, and atomic weight 39.10. It is the chief cation in the intracellular fluid of muscle and other cells. Potassium ion is a strong electrolyte that plays a significant role in the regulation of fluid volume and maintenance of the WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.Leukocyte Count: The number of WHITE BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in venous BLOOD. A differential leukocyte count measures the relative numbers of the different types of white cells.Erythrocyte Aggregation: The formation of clumps of RED BLOOD CELLS under low or non-flow conditions, resulting from the attraction forces between the red blood cells. The cells adhere to each other in rouleaux aggregates. Slight mechanical force, such as occurs in the circulation, is enough to disperse these aggregates. Stronger or weaker than normal aggregation may result from a variety of effects in the ERYTHROCYTE MEMBRANE or in BLOOD PLASMA. The degree of aggregation is affected by ERYTHROCYTE DEFORMABILITY, erythrocyte membrane sialylation, masking of negative surface charge by plasma proteins, etc. BLOOD VISCOSITY and the ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATE are affected by the amount of erythrocyte aggregation and are parameters used to measure the aggregation.Isotonic Solutions: Solutions having the same osmotic pressure as blood serum, or another solution with which they are compared. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)Hemoglobinometry: Measurement of hemoglobin concentration in blood.Sodium: A member of the alkali group of metals. It has the atomic symbol Na, atomic number 11, and atomic weight 23.Erythrocyte Membrane: The semi-permeable outer structure of a red blood cell. It is known as a red cell 'ghost' after HEMOLYSIS.Osmotic Fragility: RED BLOOD CELL sensitivity to change in OSMOTIC PRESSURE. When exposed to a hypotonic concentration of sodium in a solution, red cells take in more water, swell until the capacity of the cell membrane is exceeded, and burst.Salmonella typhimurium: A serotype of Salmonella enterica that is a frequent agent of Salmonella gastroenteritis in humans. It also causes PARATYPHOID FEVER.Salmonella Infections, Animal: Infections in animals with bacteria of the genus SALMONELLA.Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide: A single nucleotide variation in a genetic sequence that occurs at appreciable frequency in the population.Electric Stimulation: Use of electric potential or currents to elicit biological responses.MicroRNAs: Small double-stranded, non-protein coding RNAs, 21-25 nucleotides in length generated from single-stranded microRNA gene transcripts by the same RIBONUCLEASE III, Dicer, that produces small interfering RNAs (RNA, SMALL INTERFERING). They become part of the RNA-INDUCED SILENCING COMPLEX and repress the translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) of target RNA by binding to homologous 3'UTR region as an imperfect match. The small temporal RNAs (stRNAs), let-7 and lin-4, from C. elegans, are the first 2 miRNAs discovered, and are from a class of miRNAs involved in developmental timing.Haplotypes: The genetic constitution of individuals with respect to one member of a pair of allelic genes, or sets of genes that are closely linked and tend to be inherited together such as those of the MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX.Salmonella Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus SALMONELLA.Immunomagnetic Separation: A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow (BONE MARROW PURGING) of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.Blood Component Transfusion: The transfer of blood components such as erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and plasma from a donor to a recipient or back to the donor. This process differs from the procedures undertaken in PLASMAPHERESIS and types of CYTAPHERESIS; (PLATELETPHERESIS and LEUKAPHERESIS) where, following the removal of plasma or the specific cell components, the remainder is transfused back to the donor.Centrifugation: Process of using a rotating machine to generate centrifugal force to separate substances of different densities, remove moisture, or simulate gravitational effects. It employs a large motor-driven apparatus with a long arm, at the end of which human and animal subjects, biological specimens, or equipment can be revolved and rotated at various speeds to study gravitational effects. (From Websters, 10th ed; McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Hypergravity: Condition wherein the force of gravity is greater than or is increased above that on the surface of the earth. This is expressed as being greater than 1 g.Patents as Topic: Exclusive legal rights or privileges applied to inventions, plants, etc.Tomography, Spiral Computed: Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation.

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) allows for high-resolution topography studies of biological cells and measurement of their mechanical properties in physiological conditions. In this work, AFM was employed to measure the stiffness of abnormal human red blood cells (RBCs) from patients with the genotype for sickle cell trait. The determined Youngs modulus was compared with that obtained from measurements of erythrocytes from healthy subjects. The results showed that the Youngs modulus of pathological erythrocytes was approximately three times higher than in normal cells. Observed differences indicate the effect of hemoglobin S as well as possible changes in the organization of the cell cytoskeleton associated with the sickle cell trait.. Copyright © 2010 by ASME ...
|p|B ackground: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) that describes red blood cell volume heterogeneity is a common laboratory test. Our aim was to focus on th e association between RDW and a c ute pancreatitis associated lung injury (APALI). Methodology: A total of 152 acute pancreatitis (AP) patients who conformed to the criteria w ere included in this study. The demographic data, medical histories and laboratory measures was obtained from each patient on admission, further, the medical histories and biological data were analyzed, retrospectively. Results: Increased RDW at admission was observed in patients with APALI compared with the non-APALI groups. Our results exhibited that RDW was an independent risk factor for APALI after adjusting leukocyte, neutrophil percentage, random blood glucose (RBG), total bilirubin (TB) and total bile acid(TBA)(Crude model) (OR=2.671;CI 95% ...
RESULTS: Three hundred and ninety patients were included. The ICU mortality rate was 56% (N.=220) and 64% of patients (N.=251) had an unfavorable 3-month neurological outcome. The median RDW on the day of admission was 14% (13.0-15.2%) and remained stable over the observation period. Two hundred and forty-five patients (63%) had a high RDW (>13.4%) on admission. In multivariable logistic regression analysis, older age, absence of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), a non-cardiac etiology of the arrest, a non-shockable initial rhythm, high adrenaline dose during CPR and high admission RDW levels were independently associated with an unfavorable outcome at 3 months ...
Significance of low red cell distribution width (low RDW) and high red cell distribution width (high RDW) levels on blood tests: Easy to understand entry.
The main aim of the present study was to quantify the magnitude of differences introduced when estimating a given blood volume compartment (e.g. plasma volume) through the direct determination of another compartment (e.g. red cell volume) by multiplication of venous haematocrit and/or haemoglobin concentration. However, since whole body haematocrit is higher than venous haematocrit such an approach might comprise certain errors. To test this experimentally, four different methods for detecting blood volumes and haemoglobin mass (Hbmass) were compared, namely the carbon monoxide (CO) re-breathing (for Hbmass), the indocyanine green (ICG; for plasma volume [PV]) and the sodium fluorescein (SoF; for red blood cell volume [RBCV]) methods. No difference between ICG and CO re-breathing derived PV could be established when a whole ...
In accordance with general principles recommended by the International Committee for Standardization in Haematology (1982, Journal of Clinical Pathology 35, 1320-1322), the authors have developed statistical methods for the analysis of red cell volume distributions. To select an appropriate reference distribution for goodness-of-fit testing, the authors derived a mathematical model of erythropoiesis that predicted a lognormal form for the distribution of erythrocyte volumes. Model predictions were then tested using samples obtained from 50 healthy individuals. Each grouped red cell volume distribution was doubly-truncated to eliminate artifactual frequency counts. Distribution parameter estimates were computed using the expectation-maximization algorithm, a missing information technique. Results of the one-sample chi-square goodness-of-fit test showed a fairly even distribution of P-values over the interval (0, 1). Examples ...
Background: Higher red cell distribution width (RDW) is an independent predictor of greater morbidity and mortality in the general population and in myocardial infarction, coronary disease, heart failure (HF), and other patient sets. We aimed to study the predictive ability of RDW and change in RDW (ΔRDW) for length of stay (LOS) and 30-day outcomes for HF exacerbations.. Methods: Electronic query of Intermountain Healthcare medical records identified patients (N=6,414) with a primary diagnosis of HF who were discharged in 2004-2013, had RDW measured within 24 hours after admission, and had RDW tested at least once more during the same hospitalization. ΔRDW was calculated as the last RDW within 24 hours prior to discharge minus the first RDW. All patients were aged 65 years or older and were discharged alive and not to hospice.. Results: Average age was 78.9±7.8 years and 50.2% were female. Median LOS by ΔRDW quartiles was Q1: 4.1, Q2: 3.4, Q3: 3.6, and Q4: 4.7 days (p-trend,0.001), and by ...

Objective: To examine the association between elevated levels of red cell distribution width (RDW) and cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF) and metabolic syndrome (MS) in HIV-patients. Methods: Cross-sectional study including all asymptomatic HIV-outpatients under follow-up during 2007. Patients completed a questionnaire about CVRF, underwent a physical examination, and an 8-hour fasting blood analysis. Elevated RDW was defined as ≥75th percentile. Patients with and without an elevated RDW were compared. Results: 666 patients (79.3% men) were included: mean age 44.7 years, mean CD4 506/mm3 and 87.5% on antiretroviral therapy (85.3% with undetectable viral load). Mean RDW was 13.7% (range: 7.7% - 33.6%; 75th percentile, 14.1%). The prevalence per quartile of MS was 15.7%, 9.3%, 18.8% and 16.6% and of patients with CVRF > 20% was 8.4%, 4.0%, 4.4%, and 6.4%, respectively (p > 0.05); 23.4% of the patients had an elevated RDW (>14.1%).

The mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration refers to the average concentration of haemoglobin within red blood cells, and confers whether a cell is normochromic, hyperchromic or hypochromic.
This mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) calculator determines the concentration of Hb in the erythrocytes as MCHC is one of the RBC indices.
The term macrocytic is from Greek words meaning "large cell". A macrocytic class of anemia is an anemia (defined as blood with an insufficient concentration of hemoglobin) in which the red blood cells (erythrocytes) are larger than their normal volume. The normal erythrocyte volume in humans is about 80 to 100 femtoliters (fL= 10−15 L). In metric terms the size is given in equivalent cubic micrometers (1 μm3 = 1 fL). The condition of having erythrocytes which (on average) are too large, is called macrocytosis. In contrast, in microcytic anemia, the erythrocytes are smaller than normal. In a macrocytic anemia, the larger red cells are always associated with insufficient numbers of cells and often also insufficient hemoglobin content per cell. Both of these factors work to the opposite effect of larger cell size, to finally result in a total ...
In patients with hematocrit of 60% or above the A blood viscosity is increased, and the tissue oxygenation is compromised. There is an increased incidence of cardiovascular complications. Immediate phlebotomy is often done, but if the red cell volume is not increased and the plasma volume and total blood volume are decreased, phlebotomy may be harmful. Twenty-five patients with hematocrits of 60% or above have been studied. Patients with clinical or laboratory evidence of dehydration are not included. Red cell volume was determined by chromium-51 and plasma volume by iodine-131 human serum. The expected red cell volume and plasma volume ...

Article Type: Research Article Abstract: We have previously proposed the osmofiltration method based on a modified Hanss hemorheometer to analyze distributions of erythrocytes in their ability to pass through membrane filters with 3 \mu m pores. Upon decrease in medium osmolality (u ) the erythrocyte volume increases. When cell volume becomes V=V_{\mathrm{cr}} at u=u_{\mathrm{cr}} , such cell loses its ability to pass through a 3 \mu m pore. The flow rate of erythrocyte suspension containing cells with different u_{\mathrm{cr}} through a filter gradually decreases with decreasing medium osmolality. This rate becomes zero at some u=\Omega , …when the number of non‐filterable cells in the applied sample approaches the number of pores in filter. Experimental determination of ...
The model describes the PK of sultiame after administration of three single oral doses of 50, 100 and 200 mg in open-label at four to six weeks interval in 4 healthy volunteers. Serial measurements in plasma, erythrocytes and urines were performed. The plasma maximal concentrations (Cmax) showed striking non-linear disposition of sultiame, with a ten-fold increase while doses were doubled. Conversely, whole blood Cmax increased less than dose-proportionally whilst staying much higher than in plasma. A two-compartment model with first-order absorption incorporating a saturable ligand to receptor binding was devised. The model was expressed in terms of differential equations and first-order rate constants of absorption (ka), elimination (ke), association to (kon) and dissociation from (koff) receptors, maximal binding capacity (Btot), apparent central volume of distribution (V2) and erythrocytes volume of distribution (V3 ...
Treat iron deficiency in a menstruating woman. The most appropriate treatment is oral ferrous sulfate. Iron deficiency can result from blood loss or malabsorption in addition to increased iron use. Women of reproductive age may lose enough iron through normal menstrual blood loss to become iron deficient in the absence of uterine or gastrointestinal disease. Patients with mild iron deficiency may note fatigue, lack of sense of well-being, irritability, decreased exercise tolerance, and headaches before symptoms of overt anemia occur. This patient has signs and symptoms of iron deficiency, likely secondary to menstrual blood loss. The peripheral blood smear in patients with iron deficiency is remarkable for microcytic, hypochromic erythrocytes, with marked anisopoikilocytosis (that is, abnormalities in erythrocyte size and shape). The variation in the size of erythrocytes is quantified in the red blood cell ...
The essential features of X-linked sideroblastic anemia include the following: (1) a hypochromic microcytic anemia and 2 discrete populations of red blood cells, one microcytic and the other normocytic; (2) marrow ringed sideroblasts, particularly prominent in the late erythroid precursors; (3) a variable hematologic response to pharmacologic doses of pyridoxine; and (4) systemic iron overload secondary to chronic ineffective erythropoiesis. The age of clinical onset of the disorder can vary from in utero to the ninth decade. Whereas males are preferentially affected, females may present with clinically severe anemia. More commonly, female carriers of the disease have an increased red blood cell distribution width and sometimes erythrocyte dimorphism ({18:Fleming, 2002 ...

Introduction- Exercise-induced plasma volume (PV) expansion is typically associated with an increase in plasma albumin content. Increased hepatic albumin synthesis, a transcriptionally regulated process, is thought to contribute to the increase in albumin content. Objective- We tested the hypothesis that exercise training induces an increase in albumin gene expression in relationship to the increase in PV. Methods and Results- 40 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing between 245-350 grams were randomly assigned to one of four groups: cage control (CC); sham exercise 10 min/day at 48% VO2max (NE); continuous exercise training, 60 min /day at 72% VO2max (LI); and high intensity, intermittent exercise training, 8 bouts of 4 min at 98% VO2max followed by 5 min at 48% VO2max (HI). The training period lasted for two weeks with 12 training sessions with equalized training volumes in the exercise groups. 24 hours after the last training session the rats were anesthetized and a ...

SUMMARY Normal pregnancy involves many changes in maternal physiology, including alterations in hematologic parameters. These changes include expansion in maternal plasma volume. The increase in plasma volume is relatively larger than the increase in red cell mass resulting in a decrease in hemoglobin concentration. An increase in the levels of some plasma proteins alters the balance of coagulation and fibrinolysis. Worldwide, the predominant cause of anemia in pregnancy is iron deficiency. Fetal requirements for iron are met despite maternal deficiency, but maternal iron deficiency has a number of adverse consequences including an increased frequency of preterm delivery and low-birth-weight infants. Bleeding disorders in pregnancy are a common reason for hematologic consultation and evoke concern for both the mother and child. Life-threatening bleeding caused by disseminated intravascular coagulation is seen with some complications unique to pregnancy, ...
Heat acclimation is associated with plasma volume (PV) expansion that occurs within the first week of exposure. However, prolonged effects on hemoglobin mass (Hbmass) are unclear as intervention periods in previous studies have not allowed sufficient time for erythropoiesis to manifest. Therefore, Hbmass, intravascular volumes, and blood volume (BV)-regulating hormones were assessed with 5½ weeks of exercise-heat acclimation (HEAT) or matched training in cold conditions (CON) in 21 male cyclists [(mean ± SD) age: 38 ± 9 years, body weight: 80.4 ± 7.9 kg, VO2peak: 59.1 ± 5.2 ml/min/kg]. HEAT (n = 12) consisted of 1 h cycling at 60% VO2peak in 40°C for 5 days/week in addition to regular training, whereas CON (n = 9) trained exclusively in cold conditions (,15°C). Before and after the intervention, Hbmass and intravascular volumes were assessed by carbon monoxide rebreathing, while reticulocyte count and BV-regulating hormones ...
Despite significant technical improvements (bicarbonate dialysate, volumetric ultrafiltration control) high intradialytic ultrafiltration is troublesome in children, specially in the proportion of patients presenting a normal or low blood pressure even with overweight. We used, in this group of children (overhydratated without vascular repercution) a modelling of both sodium and ultrafiltration during dialysis, in order to achieve dry body weight without increasing session time despite hypotension risks. The usefulness and practicability of sodium and ultrafiltration modelling together during dialysis in children is analysed in a short time study (for plasma volume changes calculation) and in a long term follow up study over a year (for clinical tolerance ...

Seven trained men completed an STR workout (4 × 6 repetitions, 85% 1 repetition maximum [1RM], 5-minute rest periods), an HYP workout (4 × 10 repetitions, 70% 1RM, 90-second rest periods), and a control condition (CON) in a randomized crossover design. Peak force (PF), rate of force development (RFD), and muscle activity were quantified before and after exercise during an isometric squat protocol. Blood samples were taken 20, 10, and 0 minutes before and 0, 10, and 60 minutes after exercise to measure the concentration of blood lactate (BL), pH, and a number of electrolytes that were corrected for plasma volume changes. No differences were observed between the workouts for changes in PF, RFD, or muscle activity. Repeated contrasts revealed a greater (p ≤ 0.05) increase in BL concentration and reduction ...

We report red cell indices and haemoglobin (Hb)A2 levels in Sardinian children with heterozygous beta 0-thalassaemia and in normal controls aged 6 months to 12 years. Iron-deficient children and those with haematological findings indicative of alpha-thalassaemia were excluded. As in adult carriers, these subjects have significantly increased mean red cell counts and significantly reduced mean Hb levels, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), haematocrit, and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration. From 66 to 76% of the heterozygous beta 0 thalassaemia children examined were anaemic. MCH and MCV were within the normal range in 2.8% of these children. Serum ferritin levels showed no difference from those of normal controls.. ...

Hemodilution of the plasma by more than 20% associated with priming cardiopulmonary bypass pumps, plasma volume expansion or other fluid administration therapies using certain solutions may cause clinically significant error on ionized calcium results. These errors are associated with solutions that do not match the ionic characteristics of plasma. To avoid these errors when hemodiluting by more than 20%, use physiologically balanced multi-electrolyte solutions containing low-mobility anions (e.g. Gluconate) such as Normosol-R (Abbott Laboratories), Plasma-Lyte-A (Baxter Healthcare oCrporation), and Isolyte-S (B Braun Medical) rather than solutions such as normal saline or ringers lactate.. ...

Metabolic, respiratory and haematological parameters were investigated for the Little Pocket mouse during circadian torpor cycles. The rate of O2 consumption decreased from 7.04 to 0.05 ml O2.g-1.hr-1, with a corresponding decrease in respiratory minute volume from 49.4 to 0.9 ml.min-1 during torpor at an ambient temperature of 10 C. No changes in haemoglobin concentration (19.7 g/100 ml), haematocrit (54%), red blood corpuscle count (12.4 10(6)/microliter), mean corpuscular volume (43.6 micrometer3), mean corpuscular haemoglobin content (16.2 pg), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (37.4%) and [2,3-DPG] (9.6 mumol/g Hb) were observed during torpor cycles. The half saturation tension of P. longimembris haemoglobin was 41 mm Hg (37 C, pH = 7.28) and 19.7 mm Hg (10 degrees C, pH = 7.51). The effect of temperature on P50 was deltalog P50/ C = +0.0106 (pH = 7.4). Venous blood parameters were: euthermic mice (37 C); PCO2 = 36.8 mm Hg, PO2 ...
Eight adult standardbred horses were used. All horses received a single injection of 0, 3, 6, and 10 mg/kg of PPS at the beginning of each treatment week for 4 weeks so that by the end of the study all horses had received all four doses of PPS. Blood samples were collected at 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 48, and 168 h after each weekly injection of PPS. Variables measured were packed cell volume, haemoglobin, red blood cell count, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular haemoglobin, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration, platelet count, white cell count, neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, eosinophil count, monocyte count, serum protein, fibrinogen, prothrombin time, and activated partial thromboplastin time (PTT). Data were analysed using an ANOVA. Significance was set at P , 0.05 ...
1 - 5 per-cent performance improvement at lactic threshold. There are vary varied methods of high altitude training - which are successful (see the summary further down). That is a surprise. On the other hand all these methods bring an unusual stimulus and that leads to the success of the training. Science has not come to any fast conclusions so far. Evidently there is a strong individual component to it all, which affects different people in different ways. Not everyone benefits the same. But the type of preparation also plays an important role.. Benoit Nave, coach at 2PEAK, has been on many high altitude training camps with a number of top athletes and noticed, that "those who had not benefited from the training previously had either not been completely well or had trained wrongly." According to Nave, after corrections to diet and different training, these athletes were then also able to profit from the high altitude method.. What is surprising is that so little scientific data about high ...
It is essential that the specific cause of anemia be determined. The initial laboratory approach to the diagnosis of anemia follows. (Table 2-1).. - Hematocrit, hemoglobin, or red cell count to determine degree of anemia. In most cases, these three variables are closely correlated. Hemoglobin concentration is the most direct measure of oxygen-carrying capacity.. - Red cell indices (MCV, MCH, MCHC) to determine whether normocytic, macrocytic, or microcytic and normochromic or hypochromic red cells are present on average.. - Exaggerated red cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of anisocytosis.. - Reticulocyte count or index to estimate whether marrow response suggests inadequacy of red cell production or an appropriate erythropoietic response to hemolysis (or acute bleeding). The latter is usually readily apparent clinically.. - Examination of the blood film to determine red ...

This study aims to assess how mean corpuscular volume (MCV), red cell distribution width (RDW), and thiol-disulphide homeostasis are altered in psoriasis patients. This is a cross-sectional review of 76 healthy volunteers and 87 psoriasis patients who were consecutively admitted to the department of dermatology. Psoriasis patients and healthy controls were statistically similar with respect to age, sex, body mass index, blood pressures, and disease duration ( p>0.05 for all). When compared to healthy controls, psoriasis patients had significantly higher MCV, RDW, C-reactive protein (CRP), disulphide, disulphide/native thiol, and disulphide/total thiol ( ...

The effect of Nembutal on the circulating and tissue blood volumes and hematocrits was calculated by means of independent determinations of plasma and red cell volumes. Nembutal produced an increase in circulating blood volume accompanied by a reduction in the venous hematocrit. The blood volumes of liver, kidney, spleen and intestine rose following the administration of Nembutal, while the hematocrits of liver, lung, intestine and muscle declined, and that of kidney rose. The administration of Nembutal to splenectomized mice produces similar changes. The relationship of these alterations to changes in periphero-vascular tone are discussed.. ...

The two main findings of this study were first, that there is no relation between any clinically significant changes in serum concentrations of sodium, potassium, total calcium, and total magnesium and the development of EAMC in ultra-distance runners before or immediately after a race, or during the period of clinical recovery from EAMC; and second, that there is also no relation between the changes in hydration status (measured by changes in body weight, plasma volume, blood volume, or red cell volume) and the development of EAMC in ultra-distance runners during or immediately after a race. The results of our study also show that there is no relation between the development of EAMC in ultra-distance runners and changes in serum osmolality, blood glucose concentration, and the concentration of plasma proteins before and after a race.. The association between skeletal muscle cramping and disturbances of ...
Figure 1 .11 (A) Plots of h(g-water/g-protein) versus the inverse of osmotic pressure1/P gives linear plots for which the slope varies as the inverse of the effective molecular weight and the constant is the solute solvent interaction parameter expressing hydration encapsulated by the protein henc (Fullerton et a/., 1993). The value henc includes water bridges, dielectric water clusters, and bulk water fraction that are encapsulated inside the protein such that they are excluded from thermodynamic solution expressions for osmotic pressure and freezing depression. Encapsulated water molecules never interact with the osmotic membrane but can change dramatically, as shown in Figure 1.12 with solution parameters and most especially with pH. Under native condition, however, the measured henc -, hM(nat) as it does here for hemoglobin. (B) Reevaluation of RBC volume measurements as a function of osmotic pressure show that the henc = hM(nat) = 1.7 g/g in the isotonic region. There are changes in the ...

The aims of this study were to assess the sequential changes of left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic synchronicity in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and to assess their relation with LV recovery and remodeling. Forty-patients with acute ST-elevation MI were examined within 2days, 6weeks and 6months after primary coronary intervention. Fifteen-age matched subjects were enrolled for normal control. The time from the onset of QRS complex to peak systolic velocity (Ts) and to peak early diastolic velocity (Te) were measured on color-coded tissue Doppler imaging. To assess LV synchronicity, SDs of Ts (Ts-SD) and Te (Te-SD) of all 12 segments were calculated (within 2days, at 6weeks and 6months; SD1, SD2 and SD3, respectively). LV recovery was defined as the improvement of wall motion at least more than two segments at 6 weeks. In all AMI patients, the wall motion score index was 1.72±0.27 and LV ejection fraction was 45.9±9.9%. The Ts-SD1 was higher in AMI patients than in ...

Blood was obtained from cattle representing the white Fulani, NDama, Muturu and Holstein-Friesian breeds and was collected during the period June 1965 to April 1966. The age group represented ranged from 2 to 11 years and included both males and females. Haemoglobin content, packed cell volume and red blood cell count were recorded for all the breed types mentioned in the study. Haemoglobin content of Holstein Friesian, NDama, Muturu and white Fulani were 9.50, 15.20, 13.70 and 10.60 mg/100ml respectively. Packed cell volume percentage was 28.65, 36.00, 36.20 and 26.60 white mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (McHc) were 33.20, 42.20, 37.80 and 36.20 respectively ...
Cylance Pro Cycling is returning to the mountainous Southern California resort town of Big Bear Lake. The goal of the camp is to prepare at altitude with specific training prior to the Tour of the Gila.. Known for its high altitude conditions, the Tour of the Gila is the next stop on the UCI Americas Tour. By utilizing the incredible resources of Big Bear Lake, Cylance Pro Cycling plans to be as prepared as possible for one of the hardest races in the North American circuit.. According to the Journal of Human Sport and Exercise, athletes have long utilized altitude for training benefits. Higher altitude can decrease performance due to the fewer oxygen molecules per volume of air as compared to the air at sea level¹. By training at higher altitudes, the body produces more red blood cells to do the efforts in the hypoxic environment¹. Altitude training camps at specific times of year can be useful for elite athletes to acclimate for altitude races and to ...
Saltin, B. (1967). Aerobic and anaerobic work capacity at an altitude of 2,250 meters. In R. F. Goddard, (Ed.), Proceedings of the Effects of Altitude on Physical Performance Symposium (pp. 97-102). Chicago: The Athletic Institute. "One of the major problems with these early studies was the lack of a control group, where an equivalent group underwent the same training program at sea-level. Without a control group, it is difficult to separate an improvement in fitness and performance caused by training from the possible potentiating effects of altitude." (p. 54) The main difficulty is getting a good control group that is matched on critical potential confounding variables. In one study, one leg was trained at altitude, the other at sea-level in highly trained runners. Thus, subjects served as their own controls. No benefit from altitude was found. [Adams, W. C., Bernauer, E. M., Dill, D. B., & Bomar, J. B. (1975). Effects of equivalent sea-level and altitude training on VO2max and running ...

We have recently hypothesized that the optimal approach to altitude training would be to acclimatize to altitude, but train as close to sea level as possible thereby maximizing running speed and maintaining aerobic fitness," Drs. Jim Stray-Gundersen and Benjamin Levine wrote in a landmark 1992 paper in the International Journal of Sports Medicine.. The pair, who then worked at the University of Texas, were trying to answer the question of whether altitude training was truly beneficial. That same year, for example, they published a paper showing that an equivalent training schedule by groups of elite runners at altitude and at sea level had very similar effects; training at altitude didnt seem to confer any significant benefit.. "Lets say you go to Mount Everest," Stray-Gundersen told FasterSkier in an interview this week. "Your red cell mass will increase, no ands, ifs, or buts about it. Its really high. But its also so high that you cant train properly for any kind of sport where you need ...

The present data support the hypothesis. Human adult erythrocytes in vitro derived from patients with HIV (n = 15) and apparently healthy individuals (n = 15) were compared for US-induced hemolysis in vitro. The anticoagulated whole blood from patients with HIV and macrocytic erythrocytes had significantly greater (p ,0.0001) mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and a significantly greater (p ,0.03) extent of US-induced ...
In conclusion, the concept of the erythron is discussed as a logical way to approach the physiology of erythropoiesis and as a basis for understanding the pathophysiological disturbances whIch characterise the red cell abnormalities. Using this approach, both increase in red cell mass, or erythrocytosis, and decrease in red cell mass, or anaemia, are seen simply as manifestations of a disturbance in the normal regulatory mechanisms of the erythron.

ALTITUDE TRAINING AND ITS EFFECTS ON HIGHLY-TRAINED SWIMMERS The scientific evidence associated with altitude acclimatization and performance in elite swimmers is reviewed extensively in the yet-to-be-published paper, "Altitude training and elite swimmers." The authors are: Brent S. Rushall, Michael J. Buono, and Anthony A. Sucec, Professors of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences at San Diego State University, and Alan D. Roberts, Associate-Professor of Sports Studies at the University of Canberra. The article is the most detailed and up-to-date treatment of the topic available. Initial attention is paid to the manner in which the human body acclimatizes (adapts) to passive and active stresses. Those reactions are then meshed with the published works on altitude acclimatization that are valid for swimming. With altitude training featuring as an expensive part of the annual plans of several nations, it is of value to consider the summary implications of this research article. ". . . acclimatization ...
1. Thyroid-accelerated metamorphosis in the larval frog is accompanied by changes in the hemopoietic centers and in the blood cell distribution in the various regions of the body. These changes are interpreted as results of the fundamental change in basal metabolic rate induced by the thyroid treatment.. 2. There is initiation of the shift of hemopoietic locus from the kidney, the larval hemopoietic organ, to the spleen, the adult hemopoietic organ. The spleen, being chiefly an erythrocyte producer, becomes of greater importance with the transition from the lower metabolic rate to the higher, since greater erythropoiesis becomes necessary to supply the physical basis for the maintenance of the higher metabolic rate.. 3. It is suggested that the appearance of red bone marrow in the later history of the frog is correlated with a still higher metabolic rate. Phylogenetically, in the vertebrate series, red bone marrow is also associated with higher metabolic rate.. 4. The new ...
The number of false negatives, false positives, sensitivity and specificity for different Hct points in males and females as a diagnostic test of increased RCM are shown in Table 2. In females, Hct over 0.52 L/L showed a specificity of 95% with only 2 cases of 31 with this value presenting a normal RCM. This feature indicates that Hct over 0.52 L/L could be used as a surrogate of increased RCM and, consequently, RCM measurement could be avoided in such cases. On the contrary, if RCM is not assessed in patients with Hct below 0.52, PV diagnosis could not have been established in 21 of 60 females in whom RCM was actually increased. Lowering Hct level to 0.45 L/L or 0.48 L/L increased sensitivity up to 98% and 95%, and the number of false positives to 28 and 11, respectively (Table 2). These results suggest that, in females, RCM would obtain the best diagnostic performance in the differential diagnosis of ET from PV in those cases with Hct ranging from 0.45 to 0.52 L/L.. In males, Hct over 0.52 L/L ...
Previous studies have suggested a range of therapies for POTS, including mineralocorticoids, combined with increased salt and water intake to enhance plasma volume and use of adrenoceptor agonists such as minodrine however these agents often have side effects and may be ineffective in a significant number of patients. Exercise regimens offer little in the way of harm, and if ,as this research suggests, exercise offers significant benefits then perhaps it should be tried initially and potentially as an adjunct for all POTS patients ...

We are in work and life, from time to time will encounter trauma. Damage to the skin, blood vessels and nerves, fractures, and so will inevitably lead to bleeding. Accounts for about ones circulating blood volume weight of 8%, and the blood loss was less than the total blood volume 5% (200 ~ 300 ml), the body can be automatically compensated; blood loss more than 20% of total blood volume (about 800 ~ 1000 ml), the injured have pale, indifference, limb cold, as well as the rapid shallow breath symptoms, early into the shock. Once the blood loss too fast, especially acute massive blood loss, the injured not the positive and effective first aid, there will be life-threatening. The consequences of acute bleeding is very serious, therefore, to stop bleeding is an important measure to rescue the wounded, to save the lives of the ...
The circulatory transport system resembles an enormous branching tree; if combined end to end, the various branches would measure roughly 30,000 miles of blood vessels. The heart is the engine of the transport system. As the hearts energy or pressure is displaced into the circulatory system, pressure falls progressively along a gradient. On the arterial side, pressure is highest in the larger vessels (arteries) and decreases throughout the system, reaching its lowest point in the smaller vessels (capillaries). In addition, as blood travels further from the aorta where the circulatory tree divides, resistance to blood flow decreases as cross-sectional area increases. Although the volume pumped out of the heart equals the volume that returns to the heart (CO = venous return), total blood volume isnt distributed equally within the circulatory system. Most of the total blood ...
Blood doping is the practice of boosting the number of red blood cells in the bloodstream in order to enhance athletic performance. Because such blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles, a higher concentration in the blood can improve an athletes aerobic capacity (VO2 max) and endurance. Many methods of blood doping are illegal, particularly in professional sports. Blood doping is defined as the use of illicit products (e.g. erythropoietin (EPO), darbepoetin-alfa, hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) stabilizers) and methods (e.g. increase aerobic capacity by maximizing the uptake of O2) in order to enhance the O2 transport of the body to the muscles. The body undergoes aerobic respiration in order to provide sufficient delivery of O2 to the exercising skeletal muscles and the main determining factors are shown in figure 1. The rate of maximum O2 ...
Results. Statistically significant changes between two measurement points were determined in variables: the speed of swimming at aerobic threshold (Vaet1, Vaet2; t=-3.13; P=0.035), the speed of swimming at anaerobic threshold (Vant1, Vant2; t=-8.57; P=0.001) and Red blood cells (RBC1, RBC2; t=-3.34; P=0.029). The speed of swimming at aerobic threshold (Vaet) increased by 4.1%, and 3.3% anaerobic threshold (Vant) after returning from altitude training. In the hematologic blood results, it can be seen that the number of red blood cells increased by 3.7% after returning from altitude training, while the level of haemoglobin and the percentage of haematocrite remained the same ...
Multicenter prospective randomized trial to compare heart failure management strategies based on clinical assessment of volume status vs. direct measurement of blood volume with a radioisotope technique. Subjects will be randomly assigned to a standard care strategy with guideline recommended treatment based on serial clinical assessment of blood volume or a measured blood volume strategy with guideline recommended treatment based on serial measured blood volume. All subjects will undergo blood volume measurement procedures, but the testing results will only be returned to the physician in the group assigned to management according to measured blood volume status. Subjects will be blinded to their study treatment assignment status ...
Basal metabolic rate (BMR) increases at altitude, especially in the first couple of days, which means youre actually burning more calories for the same amount of exercise. Meanwhile, appetite is suppressed by hypoxia, causing you to eat less because youre not hungry. While this may sound great for those runners trying to lose weight, its detrimental to performance, especially when your body is already stressed. To minimize reduction in body mass and loss of muscle, make sure youre eating enough and try supplementing with branched-chain amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids help to build muscle mass and prevent further deterioration of lean muscle mass at high altitudes.. ...
I know that there is some back and forth in the swimming and scientific sports communities about the value of altitude training, but I really feel that this device has given me a boost. Considering the cost and inconvenience of attending an altitude training camp, having access to this machine whenever I want is more than worth the money. Plus, it is not that I dont want to do the work at altitude… its that I would never in a million years have time to travel for training. I am trying to find ways to squeeze the work into my schedule and the VO2MAXimizer allows me to do that. I am seeing results right now that dont make sense considering just how low-volume my training is right now. ...

So, I simply need to use the sensor to determine how many mg/L of alcohol there is in my breath, right? The bad news is that it is very difficult to know how much alcohol is in your breath in terms of mg/L! The poorly written MQ-3 datasheet says to calibrate the sensor by exposing it to a known alcohol gas of 0.4mg/L. From there, you can determine gas alcohol content in terms of mg/L. But how do I create an air environment with 0.4mg/L alcohol? I could evaporate 0.4mg of ethanol (thats the type of alcohol were talking about here) in a liter of air, but how do I measure out exactly 0.4mg of pure ethanol? I dont have a source of pure ethanol. I could buy 151 proof Everclear grain alcohol but then would need to account for the different density when measuring this tiny quantity. And theres the additional complexity in that evaporating aqueous ethanol will alter the humidity, and the sensor readings are sensitive to humidity! This is getting complicated. If were really motivated, I would drive ...
The main findings of this study are as follows: cystic shadows and pelvic effusion were the key findings observed on CT images. The mean maximum diameter of the cystic shadow in the ROCLC and REPWH groups was 3.76 ± 1.11 cm and 1.96 ± 0.65 cm, respectively; the mean depth of the pelvic effusion was 5.20 ± 2.47 cm and 6.96 ± 2.07 cm, respectively. Owing to the hemorrhagic content, cystic shadows presented as different density shadows on CT images. Depending on the duration and amount of the hemorrhage, they could be in uniformed liquid density, or a mixed of high and low density, or slightly higher density in most area. There are always certain edges on the outside of the cystic shadows, and the shape of the edges could be continuous or discontinuous.

A patients health may be diagnosed by centrifuging blood samples in a transparent tube, which tube contains one or more bodies or groups of bodies such as floats, inserts, liposomes, or plastic beads of different densities. Each density-defined body carries analyte-capture binding materials such as antigens or antibodies, which are specific to an epitope, or other specific high affinity binding site on a target analyte which target analyte may be in the blood or other sample being tested; and the level of which analyte is indicative of the patients health. At least one labeled binding material which is also specific to an epitope, or other specific high affinity binding site on the target analyte is added to the sample so as to form labeled binding material/analyte/body complexes in the sample. Upon centrifugation, the complexes will settle out in different areas in the tube according to the respective density of the body or bodies; and the degree of label emission of the ...
DISCUSSION. Experiments showed that physical and chemical parameters related to the construction of the receptor block can affect the quality of the histological sections. The structure of the blocks constructed with pure paraffin was too rigid so that the recipient blocks were not capable of supporting the action of the blade during the microtomy phase, releasing from the cassettes and suffering fractures in their structures. When 5%, 10% or 15% of beeswax was incorporated into the pure paraffin, the process of microtomy was achieved. The beeswax increased the tenacity of the block, allowing the paraffin to withstand the shear pressure without breaking. The blocks constructed with paraffin enriched with polymers were the only ones that endured cutting with the blade without great resistance or additional problems. In this case it is likely that the mixture of various polymers of different densities enriched the paraffin, resulting in a lubricant characteristic and a greater ...
