Reduction in baroreflex cardiovascular responses due to venous infusion in the rabbit. (1/1976)

We studied reflex bradycardia and depression of mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) during left aortic nerve (LAN) stimulation before and after volume infusion in the anesthetized rabbit. Step increases in mean right atrial pressure (MRAP) to 10 mm Hg did not result in a significant change in heart rate or MAP. After volume loading, responses to LAN stimulation were not as great and the degree of attenuation was propoetional to the level of increased MRAP. A change in responsiveness was observed after elevation of MRAP by only 1 mm Hg, corresponding to less than a 10% increase in average calculated blood volume. after an increase in MRAP of 10 mm Hg, peak responses were attenuated by 44% (heart rate) and 52% (MAP), and the initial slopes (rate of change) were reduced by 46% (heart rate) and 66% (MAP). Comparison of the responses after infusion with blood and dextran solutions indicated that hemodilution was an unlikely explanation for the attenuation of the reflex responses. Total arterial baroreceptor denervation (ABD) abolished the volume-related attenuation was still present following bilateral aortic nerve section or vagotomy. It thus appears that the carotid sinus responds to changes inblood volume and influences the reflex cardiovascular responses to afferent stimulation of the LAN. On the other hand, cardiopulmonary receptors subserved by vagal afferents do not appear to be involved.  (+info)

Quantification of baroreceptor influence on arterial pressure changes seen in primary angiotension-induced hypertension in dogs. (2/1976)

We studied the role of the sino-aortic baroreceptors in the gradual development of hypertension induced by prolonged administration of small amounts of angiotensin II (A II) in intact dogs and dogs with denervated sino-aortic baroreceptors. Short-term 1-hour infusions of A II(1.0-100 ng/kg per min) showed that conscious denervated dogs had twice the pressor sensitivity of intact dogs. Long-term infusions of A II at 5.0 ng/kg per min (2-3 weeks) with continuous 24-hour recordings of arterial pressure showed that intact dogs required 28 hours to reach the same level of pressure attained by denervated dogs during the 1st hour of infusion. At the 28th hour the pressure in both groups was 70% of the maximum value attained by the 7th day of infusion. Both intact and denervated dogs reached nearly the same plateau level of pressure, the magnitude being directly related both the the A II infusion rate and the daily sodium intake. Cardiac output in intact dogs initially decreased after the onset of A II infusion, but by the 5th day of infusion it was 38% above control, whereas blood volume was unchanged. Heart rate returned to normal after a reduction during the 1st day of infusion in intact dogs. Plasma renin activity could not be detected after 24 hours of A II infusion in either intact or denervated dogs. The data indicate that about 35% of the hypertensive effect of A II results from its acute pressor action, and an additional 35% of the gradual increase in arterial pressure is in large measure a result of baroreceptor resetting. We conclude that the final 30% increase in pressure seems to result from increased cardiac output, the cause of which may be decreased vascular compliance. since the blood volume remains unaltered.  (+info)

Myocardial oxygenation during high work states in hearts with postinfarction remodeling. (3/1976)

BACKGROUND: Postinfarction left ventricular remodeling (LVR) is associated with reductions in myocardial high-energy phosphate (HEP) levels, which are more severe in animals that develop overt congestive heart failure (CHF). During high work states, further HEP loss occurs, which suggests demand-induced ischemia. This study tested the hypothesis that inadequate myocyte oxygen availability is the basis for these HEP abnormalities. METHODS AND RESULTS: Myocardial infarction was produced by left circumflex coronary artery ligation in swine. Studies were performed in 20 normal animals, 14 animals with compensated LVR, and 9 animals with CHF. Phosphocreatine (PCr)/ATP was determined with 31P NMR and deoxymyoglobin (Mb-delta) with 1H NMR in myocardium remote from the infarct. Basal PCr/ATP tended to be decreased in postinfarct hearts, and this was significant in animals with CHF. Infusion of dobutamine (20 microg x kg-1 x min-1 IV) caused doubling of the rate-pressure product in both normal and LVR hearts and resulted in comparable significant decreases of PCr/ATP in both groups. This decrease in PCr/ATP was not associated with detectable Mb-delta. In CHF hearts, rate-pressure product increased only 40% in response to dobutamine; this attenuated response also was not associated with detectable Mb-delta. CONCLUSIONS: Thus, the decrease of PCr/ATP during dobutamine infusion is not the result of insufficient myocardial oxygen availability. Furthermore, in CHF hearts, the low basal PCr/ATP and the attenuated response to dobutamine occurred in the absence of myocardial hypoxia, indicating that the HEP and contractile abnormalities were not the result of insufficient oxygen availability.  (+info)

Increased orthostatic tolerance following moderate exercise training in patients with unexplained syncope. (4/1976)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a programme of simple, moderate exercise training increases blood volume and improves orthostatic tolerance in patients with attacks of syncope or near syncope related to orthostatic stress. DESIGN: An open study in 14 patients referred with unexplained attacks of syncope, who were shown to have a low tolerance to an orthostatic stress test. Measurements were made of plasma and blood volumes, orthostatic tolerance to a test of combined head up tilt and lower body suction, and baroreceptor sensitivity by applying subatmospheric pressures to a chamber over the neck. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed from the relation between heart rate and oxygen uptake during a graded treadmill exercise test. Assessments were made before and after undertaking an exercise training programme (Canadian Air Force 5BX/XBX). RESULTS: After the training period, 12 of the 14 patients showed evidence of improved cardiorespiratory fitness. All 12 patients were symptomatically improved; they showed increases in plasma and blood volumes and in orthostatic tolerance, and decreases in baroreceptor sensitivity. Despite the improved orthostatic tolerance, values of blood pressure both while supine and initially following tilting were lower than before training. CONCLUSIONS: Exercise training has a role in the management of patients with syncope and poor orthostatic tolerance. It improves symptoms and increases orthostatic tolerance without increasing resting blood pressure.  (+info)

Stroke volume decline during prolonged exercise is influenced by the increase in heart rate. (5/1976)

This study determined whether the decline in stroke volume (SV) during prolonged exercise is related to an increase in heart rate (HR) and/or an increase in cutaneous blood flow (CBF). Seven active men cycled for 60 min at approximately 57% peak O2 uptake in a neutral environment (i.e., 27 degrees C, <40% relative humidity). They received a placebo control (CON) or a small oral dose (i.e., approximately 7 mg) of the beta1-adrenoceptor blocker atenolol (BB) at the onset of exercise. At 15 min, HR and SV were similar during CON and BB. From 15 to 55 min during CON, a 13% decline in SV was associated with an 11% increase in HR and not with an increase in CBF. CBF increased mainly from 5 to 15 min and remained stable from 20 to 60 min of exercise in both treatments. However, from 15 to 55 min during BB, when the increase in HR was prevented by atenolol, the decline in SV was also prevented, despite a normal CBF response (i.e., similar to CON). Cardiac output was similar in both treatments and stable throughout the exercise bouts. We conclude that during prolonged exercise in a neutral environment the decline in SV is related to the increase in HR and is not affected by CBF.  (+info)

Effect of acute normovolemic hemodilution on distribution of blood flow and tissue oxygenation in dog skeletal muscle. (6/1976)

Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) is efficient in reducing allogenic blood transfusion needs during elective surgery. Tissue oxygenation is maintained by increased cardiac output and oxygen extraction and, presumably, a more homogeneous tissue perfusion. The aim of this study was to investigate blood flow distribution and oxygenation of skeletal muscle. ANH from hematocrit of 36 +/- 3 to 20 +/- 1% was performed in 22 splenectomized, anesthetized beagles (17 analyzed) ventilated with room air. Normovolemia was confirmed by measurement of blood volume. Distribution of perfusion within skeletal muscle was determined by using radioactive microspheres. Tissue oxygen partial pressure was assessed with a polarographic platinum surface electrode. Cardiac index (3.69 +/- 0.79 vs. 4.79 +/- 0.73 l. min-1. m-2) and muscle perfusion (4.07 +/- 0.44 vs. 5.18 +/- 0.36 ml. 100 g-1. min-1) were increased at hematocrit of 20%. Oxygen delivery to skeletal muscle was reduced to 74% of baseline values (0.64 +/- 0.06 vs. 0.48 +/- 0.03 ml O2. 100 g-1. min-1). Nevertheless, tissue PO2 was preserved (27.4 +/- 1.3 vs. 29.9 +/- 1. 4 Torr). Heterogeneity of muscle perfusion (relative dispersion) was reduced after ANH (20.0 +/- 2.2 vs. 13.9 +/- 1.5%). We conclude that a more homogeneous distribution of perfusion is one mechanism for the preservation of tissue oxygenation after moderate ANH, despite reduced oxygen delivery.  (+info)

Breathing responses to small inspiratory threshold loads in humans. (7/1976)

To investiage the effect of inspiratory threshold load (ITL) on breathing, all previous work studied loads that were much greater than would be encountered under pathophysiological conditions. We hypothesized that mild ITL from 2.5 to 20 cmH2O is sufficient to modify control and sensation of breathing. The study was performed in healthy subjects. The results demonstrated that with mild ITL 1) inspiratory difficulty sensation could be perceived at an ITL of 2.5 cmH2O; 2) tidal volume increased without change in breathing frequency, resulting in hyperpnea; and 3) although additional time was required for inspiratory pressure to attain the threshold before inspiratory flow was initiated, the total inspiratory muscle contraction time remained constant. This resulted in shortening of the available time for inspiratory flow, so that the tidal volume was maintained or increased by significant increase in mean inspiratory flow. On the basis of computer simulation, we conclude that the mild ITL is sufficient to increase breathing sensation and alter breathing control, presumably aiming at maintaining a certain level of ventilation but minimizing the energy consumption of the inspiratory muscles.  (+info)

Efficacy of recombinant human Hb by 31P-NMR during isovolemic total exchange transfusion. (8/1976)

The ability of recombinant human Hb (rHb1.1), which is being developed as an oxygen therapeutic, to support metabolism was measured by in vivo 31P-NMR surface coil spectroscopy of the rat abdomen in control animals and in animals subjected to isovolemic exchange transfusion to hematocrit of <3% with human serum albumin or 5 g/dl rHb1.1. No significant changes in metabolite levels were observed in control animals for up to 6 h. The albumin-exchange experiments, however, resulted in a more than eightfold increase in Pi and a 50% drop in phosphocreatine and ATP within 40 min. The tissue pH dropped from 7.4 to 6.8. The decrease in high-energy phosphates obeyed Michaelis-Menten kinetics, with a Michaelis-Menten constant of 3% as the hematocrit at which a 50% drop in high-energy phosphates was observed. Exchange transfusion with rHb1.1 resulted in no significant drop in high-energy phosphates, no rise in Pi, and no change in tissue pH from 7.35 +/- 0.15 for up to 5 h after exchange. By these criteria, rHb1.1 at a plasma Hb concentration of approximately 5 g/dl after total exchange transfusion was able to sustain energy metabolism of gut tissue at levels indistinguishable from control rats with a threefold higher total Hb level in erythrocytes.  (+info)

In medicine, intravascular volume status refers to the volume of blood in a patients circulatory system, and is essentially the blood plasma component of the overall volume status of the body, which otherwise includes both intracellular fluid and extracellular fluid. Still, the intravascular component is usually of primary interest, and volume status is sometimes used synonymously with intravascular volume status. It is related to the patients state of hydration, but is not identical to it. For instance, intravascular volume depletion can exist in an adequately hydrated person if there is loss of water into interstitial tissue (e.g. due to hyponatremia or liver failure). Volume contraction of intravascular fluid (blood plasma) is termed hypovolemia, and its signs include, in order of severity: a fast pulse infrequent and low volume urination dry mucous membranes (e.g. a dry tongue) poor capillary refill (e.g. when the patients fingertip is pressed, the skin turns white, but upon release, the ...
Several studies have demonstrated increased rCBV in high-grade gliomas compared with low-grade tumors.2,4-6,8-10 There is, however, considerable variation in the reported rCBV values for low- and high-grade tumors (On-line Table). In SE-EPI DSC imaging, transverse relaxation rates peak at a vessel diameter of 1-2 μm, whereas in GE-EPI DSC imaging they plateau at 3-4 μm and then remain independent of vessel size, explaining the lower rCBVs found with SE techniques.6 Differences may also be due to variations in the histologic types of LGG examined and inclusion or exclusion of intratumoral vessels in the analysis, often not specified.. We demonstrated that inclusion of large intratumoral vessels significantly increases rCBVmax values in all types of LGG. Their identification may be difficult on rCBV color maps alone and necessitates reviewing of unprocessed perfusion data. The diameter of intratumoral vessels clearly identifiable on GE-EPI images lies in the millimeter range (approximating the ...

PURPOSE: To use multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to quantify treatment-induced changes in the whole volume of diffuse infiltrating pontine gliomas and correlate them with progression-free survival (PFS). METHODS AND MATERIALS: This prospective study included 22 children aged 3.3 to 14.7 years (median, 5.9 years). Multimodal MRI was performed at 3 distinct time points: before treatment, the first week following radiation therapy (RT), and 2 months after RT. The imaging protocol included morphologic, multi b-value diffusion; arterial spin labeling; and dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced perfusion. Morphologic and multimodal data-lesion volume, diffusion coefficients, relative cerebral blood flow, and relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV)-were recorded at the 3 aforementioned time points. The Wilcoxon test was used to compare each individual parameter variation between time points, and its correlation with PFS was assessed by the Spearman test. RESULTS: Following RT, the tumors ...

The human hippocampal formation is characterized by anterior-posterior gradients of cell density, neurochemistry, and hemodynamics. In addition, some functions are associated with specific subfields (subiculum, CA1-4, dentate gyrus) and regions (anterior and posterior). We performed contrast-enhanced, high-resolution T1-weighted 3T steady state (SS) imaging to investigate cerebral blood volume (CBV) gradients of the hippocampal formation. We studied 14 healthy subjects and found significant CBV gradients (anterior , posterior) in the subiculum but not in other hippocampal subfields. Since CBV is a marker of basal metabolism, these results indicate a greater baseline activity in the anterior compared with the posterior subiculum. This gradient might be related to the role of the subiculum as the main outflow station of the hippocampal formation and might have implications for the mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. ...

AU - Froment, Jean Claude. AU - Baskurt, Atilla. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - In this work, a method for segmenting human brain MR scans on the basis of perfusion is described. This technique uses a measure of similarity between the time-intensity curves obtained with dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced MRI and a modeled curve of reference to isolate a tissue of interest, such as white or gray matter. The aim of this study was to validate the method by performing segmentation of white and gray matter in six controls. The relative regional blood volume grayto-white matter ratio was used as a criterion to assess the quality of segmentation. On average, this ratio was 2.1 ± 0.2, which is in good agreement with the literature, thus suggesting reliable segmentation. In the case of abnormal perfusion, time-intensity ...
These scientific tests looks convinced, and seems fine for all these while. But if you think about it deeply, it might not be the actual story. Lets take the example of RBCC and anemia. Anemia means the total blood volume in someone body is not sufficient. Are you convinced that just a few tenth or hundred CC of blood that a blood test can measure your total blood volume? In brief, blood test assay is taking proportion of certain substance inside a certain volume of blood, which is quantitative measurement. It doesnt sounds logic that we can measure total blood volume inside a body using this kind of quantitative measurement. Let me describe using a real life example. Assume inside a mall there are 1 million people and we do not know. We would like to know the total number of people and we started the survey. If we sample using 100 people, 60 men and 40 women, we may be able to get the proportion of man to woman in the mall, but we will never able to know the total number of people inside the ...

In view of the remarkable decrease of the relative heart weight and the relative blood volume in growing pigs, we investigated whether cardiac output (CO) and stroke volume (SV) of modern growing pigs are proportional to body mass (M), as predicted by allometric scaling laws: CO (or SV) = a.M(b), ... read more in which b is a multitude of 0.25 (quarter power scaling law). Specifically, we tested the hypothesis that CO scales with M to the power of 0.75 (CO = a.M(0.75)) and SV scales with M to the power of 1.00 (SV = a.M(1.0)) and investigated whether these relations persisted during increased cardiac stress. For this purpose, 2 groups of pigs (group 1 of 57 +/- 3 kg in Lelystad, and group 2 of 28 +/- 1 kg in Rotterdam) were chronically instrumented with a flow probe to measure CO and SV; instrumented pigs were studied at rest and during strenuous exercise (at approximately 85% of maximum heart rate). Analysis of both groups of pigs (analyzed separately or combined) under resting conditions ...
The cord provides oxygen and other essentials to the baby in the womb and in the first few minutes after the birth, while the babys lungs are inflating and acclimating to breathing air for the first time. Its essential for babys oxygenation that the cord remain intact for a *minimum* of 3 minutes after the birth, according to the World Health Organization. Additionally, since the blood in the placenta and cord are part of the babys total blood volume and designed to be returned to the baby through the cord after the birth, if the cord is clamped and cut prematurely, the baby is deprived of 30-40% of his total blood volume, which means that many babies have low iron levels due to that blood loss. This is a health problem called anemia, and its measurable for 6 months or more after the birth in babies whose cords were cut too early ...

The main findings of our study are threefold. First, increased PEEP during positive-pressure ventilation with moderate tidal volumes produced an increase in MSFP, which almost completely compensated for the concomitant increase in RAP and did not change RVR. Consequently, cardiac output did not change. When blood volume was altered, MSFP and RAP changed in the same direction, but RAP was less affected. Accordingly, VRdP and cardiac output decreased and increased in parallel with blood volume, but again, RVR did not change.. Second, MSFPinsp_hold overestimated the MSFPRAO in euvolemic conditions, regardless of the PEEP level, whereas in bleeding and hypervolemia, the observed values were very similar.. Third, the inspiratory hold maneuvers shifted the venous return pressure/flow relationship to the right of the reference venous return curve in euvolemic conditions but did not do so in bleeding or hypervolemia.. To explain the shift in the pressure/flow relationship during the inspiratory holds ...

The Volume Merge operation flattens the scalar data in a collection of volumes into a single base volume. This is useful for converting many overlapping volumes into one large volume for more efficient rendering. For example, you can stamp hundreds of thousands of volumes into a single volume for faster rendering, and flatten hierarchies into a low-res base. You can also create a Frustum volume that ensures only voxels in your cameras field of view are created.. ...

This study investigated whether excision of either the right or left atrial appendage of rats alters their natriuretic response and the release of atrial natriuretic factor during acute blood volume expansion or reduction. These animals were subjected to a thoracotomy and either had their right or left atrial appendages removed or underwent a right or left atrial sham appendectomy for comparative, control purposes. Intrajugular vein, intracarotid artery, and intravesical catheters were installed 3-4 weeks later under sodium pentobarbital anesthesia. Then, when the rats were conscious, blood volume was expanded using blood from donor rats once every 15 minutes in 3 increments of 10% of the calculated total blood volume at a rate of 5 ml/kg/min. Blood and urine samples were collected before volume expansion and at the end of each 15-minute period, with the withdrawn blood being replaced. A maximal fourfold increase in urinary volume, urinary sodium excretion, and plasma atrial natriuretic factor ...
Effects of hemodialysis on extracellular fluid volume distribution, left ventricular volumes, and cardiac output were determined in patients with end-stage renal disease (n = 19). Distribution of extracellular fluid loss from hemodialysis differed widely among patients, so that weight change correlated weakly with contraction of total blood volume (index of determination 29%, p less than 0.05). End-diastolic volume (EDV) decreased from 150 +/- 49 ml (mean +/- SD) to 118 +/- 42 ml, p less than 0.001; stroke volume (SV) decreased from 108 +/- 36 to 86 +/- 33 ml (p less than 0.001) without change in ejection fraction (from 0.73 +/- 0.09 to 0.74 +/- 0.11). A significant correlation was found between total blood volume (TBV) and EDV before (r = 0.66, p less than 0.005) and after dialysis (r = 0.61, p less than 0.001). The correlation between TBV and SV was highly significant before (r = 0.78, p less than 0.001) and after dialysis (r = 0.66, p less than 0.005), but there was no correlation between ...
To test these hypotheses, we studied 37 consecutive POTS patients aged 14-21 yr (median = 17.2 yr, 11 men and 26 women) and 12 healthy volunteers aged 15-21 yr (median = 17.4 yr, 5 men and 7 women).. POTS patients were referred to our center for symptoms of orthostatic intolerance lasting for longer than 6 mo. Orthostatic intolerance was defined by the presence of lightheadedness, fatigue, headache, neurocognitive deficits, palpitations, nausea, blurred vision, abnormal sweating, and a sensation of shortness of breath or heat while upright with no other medical explanation for the symptoms. In all patients, POTS was confirmed on a screening upright-tilt table test at 70°. POTS was diagnosed by symptoms of orthostatic intolerance during the screening tilt test associated with an increase in sinus HR of ,30 beats/min or to a HR of ,120 beats/min during the first 10 min of tilt as defined in the adult literature (20, 29). We used mercury in-Silastic strain-gauge plethysmography to measure supine ...
The hemodynamic effects of hypovolemia and acidosis were studied in 23 patients with cholera. Studies were made before and during fluid replacement and administration of alkali.. The major hemodynamic abnormalities encountered before rehydration can be ascribed to a reduction in circulating blood volume. Hypovolemia was associated with a reduction in cardiac output, blood pressures, and central blood volume. Restoration of blood volume returned these variables toward normal.. The chief effect of acidosis appeared to be a redistribution of blood from the peripheral to the central circulation; consequently, central blood volume, lesser circulation pressures, and cardiac output were relatively well maintained despite hypovolemia. Fluid administration without correction of acidosis favored a disproportionate increase in central blood volume, while reduction in hydrogen ion concentration attending fluid replacement resulted in a more even distribution of the circulating blood volume and reduced the ...

Both ischemic and non-ischemic heart disease can cause disturbances in the myocardial blood volume (MBV), myocardial perfusion and the myocardial extracellular volume fraction (ECV). Recent studies suggest that native myocardial T1 mapping can detect changes in MBV during adenosine stress without the use of contrast agents. Furthermore, native T2 mapping could also potentially be used to quantify changes in myocardial perfusion and/or MBV. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the relative contributions of myocardial perfusion, MBV and ECV to native T1 and native T2 at rest and during adenosine stress in normal physiology. Healthy subjects (n = 41, 26 ± 5 years, 51% females) underwent 1.5 T cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) scanning. Quantitative myocardial perfusion [ml/min/g] and MBV [%] maps were computed from first pass perfusion imaging at adenosine stress (140 microg/kg/min infusion) and rest following an intravenous contrast bolus (0.05 mmol/kg, gadobutrol). Native T1 and T2 maps

These data were compared with the change in the volume of the same region of myocardium estimated from the change in angiographic opacification of the heart wall. Five dogs were anesthetized, and four pairs of 2-mm-diameter lead beads were attached to the epicardial and endocardial regions. Two scans using the dynamic spatial reconstructor (a high-speed computed tomographic scanner) were performed during aortograms, one under control conditions and the other during adenosine infusion. The results have shown that the increases of myocardial volume defined by the beads (ΔV(bead), % of volume at control) ...
To the Editor:. I read with great interest the Hypertension Highlights article, Sympathetic Nervous System and Blood Pressure in Humans.1 I would like to make 2 comments with regard to regulation of sympathetic activity, which relates to the above-mentioned article and may be of interest to your readers. We reported many years ago that sympathetic activity as measured by plasma norepinephrine increased with age.2 Furthermore, we demonstrated that sympathetic activity was inversely related to the blood volume.3 Joyner et al1 demonstrated that muscle nerve sympathetic activity was inversely related to the level of cardiac output in a group of young healthy men. It is well established that cardiac output depends on the level of the blood volume and decreases, for example, in response to volume changes in the standing-up position. It is, therefore, likely that the interrelationship observed between cardiac output and sympathetic activity is at least in part explained by variations in the level of ...
As a general matter of health, optimum blood volume is essential to the proper function of the bodys cardiopulmonary and circulatory systems. Blood is a significant mass within the body, with an average volume for an adult of 51. liters (1); blood typically represents approximately 8% of body mass. For an elite-level endurance athlete, the blood volume may be 30% greater than that of the average adult.. Blood is composed of solid and liquid elements. Plasma, composed of 90% water, is the liquid that transports various types of dissolved particles as well as blood cells. The cells contained the human blood stream are erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets. Erythrocytes are the red blood cells that contain hemoglobin, the protein that transports oxygen within the body, as well as carry the waste carbon dioxide produced by the body. Leukocytes are the white blood cells that are responsible for attacking infection and other hostile organisms within the body. There are five different types of white ...

We performed MR perfusion studies in 11 patients. All of them had occlusion or high-grade stenosis of the unilateral carotid artery. Three areas of old infarct, 4 areas of new infarct, and 10 areas of brain without infarct were evaluated specifically. In all these cases, the TTP maps appeared similar to the MTT maps. They showed increases, normal values, ...
Under normal conditions, blood flow in the renal arterial circulation is antegrade and maintained during diastole. When renal arterial vascular resistance increases or compliance lessens, a decrease in renal diastolic blood flow occurs, which is more pronounced than the decrease in the systolic component (11). This action results in an increased RI. Importantly, the Doppler waveform is altered not by vascular resistance alone but by the interaction of vascular resistance and compliance (e.g., large arterial distensibility, pulse pressure). Therefore, aging, atherosclerosis, and stiffening of the large arteries will result in an increased RI (12). This scenario likely explains the significantly lower baseline RI value in the cohort of healthy young subjects compared with HF patients.. Baseline levels of VII were not different between groups. After multivariate analyses, there was a poor but significant correlation between RVSP and baseline VII, but no significant correlation remained between ...

Background and Purpose-Computed tomographic perfusion (CTP) thresholds associated with follow-up brain infarction may differ by time from symptom onset to imaging and reperfusion. We confirm CTP thresholds over time to imaging and reperfusion in patients with acute ischemic stroke from the HERMES collaboration (Highly Effective Reperfusion Evaluated in Multiple Endovascular Stroke Trials) data. Methods-Patients with occlusion on CT angiography were acutely imaged with CTP. Noncontrast CT and magnetic resonance-diffusion weighted imaging at 24 to 48 hours defined follow-up infarction. Reperfusion was assessed on conventional angiogram. Tmax, cerebral blood flow (CBF), and cerebral blood volume maps were derived from delayinsensitive CTP postprocessing.

TY - JOUR. T1 - In Vivo Validation of Magnetic Resonance Blood Volume Flow Measurements with Limited Spatial Resolution in Small Vessels. AU - Hofman, Mark B.M.. AU - Visser, Frans C.. AU - Van Rossum, Albert C.. AU - Vink, Ger Q.M.. AU - Sprenger, Michiel. AU - Westerhof, Nico. PY - 1995/1/1. Y1 - 1995/1/1. N2 - The accuracy of magnetic resonance phase contrast volume flow measurements in small blood vessels is expected to be smaller than in large vessels, because of partial volume effects at the vessel boundary. Accuracy was validated in the dog femoral artery, diameter 3.5 ± 0.7 mm, using an ultrasonic transit‐time flowmeter (TT). The number of pixels per vessel diameter (ND) ranged from 1.6 to 4.8. The vessel cross‐section was determined using a threshold in the magnitude image. Between the two methods the correlation coefficient was 0.95 (range 10-200 ml/min). The proportional difference (PD), (QTT - QMR/1/2(QTT + QMR), was 0.8%, showing no systematic difference between the methods. ...
Intravenous 4% succinylated gelatine fluid at a dose of at least 500mL, to be delivered over less than 60 minutes, Exact dose will be determined by treating physician. The study fluid will also be used for any further fluid boluses required within the next 24-hour period, up to a maximum of 50mL/kg or 3000mL. Any fluid required for blood volume expansion beyond 24 hours is open-label; however, the use of gelatine will be not allowed for 7 days post-enrolment. Other crystalloid fluids or blood products may be used for purposes other than blood volume expansion, such as maintenance requirements or transfusion. Use of albumin solution is also permitted, if specifically indicated. Volume and type of all fluids delivered with 7 days of enrolment, or until ICU discharge, will be recorded. ...
A multi-point method of determining a time-zero blood volume by the tracer dilution technique. A tracer is injected into the blood stream of a living being, and a plurality of mixed samples of blood and tracer are removed from the blood stream at a corresponding plurality of measured time intervals subsequent to the injecting step. A blood portion volume corresponding to each time interval is automatically determined from the tracer level in the mixed samples, and a time-zero blood portion volume is automatically calculated from the determined blood portion volumes and time intervals.
Object. The benefits of measuring cerebral oxygenation in patients with brain injury are well accepted; however, jugular bulb oximetry, which is currently the most popular monitoring technique used has several shortcomings. The goal of this study was to validate the use of a new multiparameter sensor that measures brain tissue oxygenation and metabolism (Neurotrend) by comparing it with positron emission tomography (PET) scanning.. Methods. A Neurotrend sensor was inserted into the frontal region of the brain in 19 patients admitted to the neurointensive care unit. After a period of stabilization, the patients were transferred to the PET scanner suite where C15O, 15O2, and H2 15O PET scans were obtained to facilitate calculation of regional cerebral blood volume, O2 metabolism, blood flow, and O2 extraction fraction (OEF). Patients were given hyperventilation therapy to decrease arterial CO2 by approximately 1 kPa (7.5 mm Hg) and the same sequence of PET scans was repeated. For each scanning ...
ABSTRACT Purpose 4D perfusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with intravenous injection of contrast agent allows for a radiation-free assessment of regional lung function. It is therefore a valuable method to monitor response to treatment in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study was designed to evaluate its potential for monitoring short-term response to hyperoxia in COPD patients. Materials and Methods 19 prospectively enrolled COPD patients (median age 66y) underwent paired dynamic contrast-enhanced 4D perfusion MRI within 35min, first breathing 100% oxygen (injection 1, O2) and then room air (injection 2, RA), which was repeated on two consecutive days (day 1 and 2). Post-processing software was employed to calculate mean transit time (MTT), pulmonary blood volume (PBV) and pulmonary blood flow (PBF), based on the indicator dilution theory, for the automatically segmented whole lung and 12 regions of equal volume. Results Comparing O2 with RA conditions, PBF and
It depends on the degree of damage or cut. Certainly our body will compensate for that blood loss. More blood is lost if the cut is big. The body compensates for the gradual decrease in blood volume. The heart rate increases since the heart needs to pump much more just to maintain the normal blood volume and so the BP also increases. Now if the situation wont be given an attention, the blood volume decreases significantly and that could possibly lead to a more life threatening condition which is hypovolemic shock. When BP is obtained, it will be read below the normal level since the compensatory mechanism is no longer able to sustain the necessary blood volume of the body ...

A non-invasive system for measuring the concentration of an analyte, such as glucose, in an absorbing matrix is described. The system directs beams of light at the matrix using an analyte sensitive wavelength and an analyte insensitive wavelength. The principles of photoplethysmography are applied to measure the change in light intensity caused by matrix absorption before and after the blood volume change caused by the systolic phase of the cardiac cycle. The change in light intensity is converted to an electrical signal which is used to adjust the light intensity and as a measure of analyte concentration.

Axitinib is a potent small-molecule receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor that induces significant antiangiogenic responses, including rapid loss of tumor vascular potency with a decrease in tumor blood volume followed by a gradual decrease in microvessel density and ,90% loss of endothelial fenestration of the tumor vasculature (16, 17). These strong antiangiogenic responses contribute to the antitumor activity of axitinib but also raise questions as to how they will affect the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of more traditional cancer chemotherapeutics in a combination therapy setting. In the present study, we used rat 9L gliosarcoma, a highly vascularized tumor model (20, 21), to study the combination of daily axitinib administration with cyclophosphamide given on an every 6-day repeating, metronomic treatment schedule (11, 13). We found that the combination therapy induced sustained tumor growth stasis on initiation of drug treatment. However, the strong antiangiogenic effect of this drug ...
OBJECTIVES: In patients with large total blood volume contrast material (CM) dilution decreases coronary attenuation in CT coronary angiography (CTCA). As increased blood volume is well paralleled by body surface area (BSA) we assessed a BSA-adapted CM protocol to compensate for dilution effects.. METHODS: Low-dose CTCA with prospective ECG-triggering was performed in 80 patients with a BSA-adapted CM bolus ranging 40-105 ml and injection rate ranging 3.5-5.0 ml/s for a BSA of ,1.70 to ,2.5 m(2). Eighty control patients matched for BSA who had previously undergone routine CTCA with a fixed CM protocol of 80 ml at 5 ml/s served as reference group. The average vessel attenuation from the proximal right (RCA) and the left main coronary artery (LMA) was assessed. Correlation of BSA with vessel attenuation was assessed in both groups.. RESULTS: BSA-matching of all patients was successful (BSA-adapted group 1.98 +/- 0.15 m(2), range 1.66-2.39 m(2) versus reference group 1.98 +/- 0.17 m(2), range ...
In the 200 ml group, 10 min after the end of volume expansion, the increase in MSAP and CVP disappears, whereas ITBV, CI and SI increases remain unchanged and even shows for ITBV a trend toward increase. This suggest a post-expansion effect which is not observed on CVP values. In group 2 who had a higher baseline CVP and a lower volume expansion, the increases in MSAP, CVP, ITBV and SI observed at the end of volume expansion disappear 10 min later, suggesting the absence of a post-expansion effect when the baseline CVP is high and/or the volume infused is low. ...
Most women, especially first time mothers, have deficient knowledge about the normal physiological changes in pregnancy. In the third trimester, mothers are concerned about the changes in body weight, appearance and her complete blood count. It is not surprising if the mother is worried about blood disorders such as anemia.. All these can be attributed to the cardiovascular system changes in a pregnant woman which includes an increase of the blood volume for at least 30% (and possibly for as much as 50%.) An increase of the blood volume is needed by the mother to provide for adequate exchange of nutrients in the placenta and to provide for adequate blood to compensate for blood loss at birth.. In consequence, the increase of blood volume dilutes the blood components including the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. In response, these blood components also increase slightly. Iron intake is increased to address pseudoanemia and the needs of the fetus. What about the platelets? ...
Whenever one finds blood in the cage, or blood on a bird, the first thing to be done is to locate the source of the blood flow. While a bird can certainly bleed to death from an injury, they rarely do because avian blood clots quickly and effectively. Still, one must take immediate steps to staunch blood flow from a bird, as they have very little blood volume in their body. Losing more than 10% of this blood volume is considered unsafe.. Blood Volume in Birds. So, how much blood in inside of your bird? Birds normally have 6-11 mls of blood per 100 grams of body weight. So a cockatiel weighing 100 grams would have about 8-10 mls of blood in its body, and could therefore only afford to safely lose .8 to 1ml of its blood. This equates to about 8-10 drops of blood before the safety line has been crossed.. Each ml/cc equates to approximately 10 drops of fluid.. Keep in mind that the amount of blood in the cage may look to be a much larger quantity than it actually is, because it spreads. Take an eye ...

A process wherein the various components of blood plasma (a component of blood obtained by blood fractionation) are separated is known as blood plasma fractionation. It acts as natures raw material which is used in dozens of life-saving treatments and medications. Blood plasma forms the liquid component of whole blood and accounts for approximately 55% of the total blood volume. The main constituent of the blood plasma is water and consists of small amount of nutrients, minerals, proteins, salts, and ions..

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become an established and invaluable tool in the diagnosis of numerous diseases through its ability to show pathologic contrast in images of soft tissue. More recently, MRI has found application in the study of organ function, principally in the brain and heart. This article deals with MRI imaging of brain function and describes some of the techniques that allow physiological parameters such as cerebral blood volume, cerebral blood oxygenation, and cerebral perfusion to be determined. Additionally, some of the potentially confounding influences in these experiments are discussed.

I am really impressed by this article published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience in December 2013. In this paper, Yoshino et al. 2013 demonstrate that the activation of prefrontal cortex increases with faster deceleration during driving, which implies that during a quick brake the drivers brain-functionality increases which is required to avoid accidents. While the above mentioned finding of this study is of interest to many, the real strength of this paper, in my opinion, lies in the use of vector-based phase analysis of fNIRS signals.The vector-based method appears to be a powerful method to analyze fNIRS signals. Examination of several indices including the changes in the concentration of oxygenated hemoglobin (ΔHbO), deoxygenated hemoglobin (ΔHbR), cerebral blood volume (ΔCBV), cerebral oxygen exchange (ΔCOE), activity strength (L) and the phase angle (k), simultaneously on a single plot, might yield to new insights of the fNIRS data and its relationship with neuronal activity.
