Measurement of cerebral blood volume using near-infrared spectroscopy and indocyanine green elimination. (1/161)

Methods for measuring cerebral blood volume (CBV) have traditionally used radioisotopes. More recently, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has been used to measure CBV by using a technique involving O(2) desaturation of cerebral tissue, where the observed change in the concentration of oxygenated hemoglobin is a marker of the volume of blood contained within the brain. A new integration method employing NIRS is described by using indocyanine green (ICG) as the intravascular marker. After bolus injection, concentration-time integrals of cerebral tissue ICG concentration ([ICG](tissue)) measured by NIRS are compared with corresponding integrals of the cerebral blood ICG concentrations ([ICG](blood)) estimated by high-performance liquid chromatography of peripheral blood samples with allowance for cerebral-to-large-vessel hematocrit ratio. It is shown that CBV = integral [ICG]tissue/[ICG]blood. Measurements in 10 adult volunteers gave a mean value of 1.1 +/- 0.39 (SD) ml/100 g illuminated tissue. This result, although lower than previous NIRS estimations, is consistent with the long extracerebral path of light in the adult head. Scaling of results is required to take into account this component of the optical pathlength.  (+info)

Measurement of blood volume in surgical and intensive care practice. (2/161)

Clinical studies to assess the benefits of blood transfusion or haemodilution in critical illness should take account of measured CBV before, during and after intervention. As mentioned above, surrogate measures of CBV are inadequate and studies based on these must be considered incomplete, because they cannot distinguish between effects of changes in haemoglobin concentration and changes in blood volume. The choice of a suitable technique for measuring CBV depends on the facilities available locally. In general, methods based on labelled red cells are more reliable but are technically demanding and time consuming. Those based on albumin are likely to yield false high values and this is particularly true in all patients with impaired capillary integrity. The most promising plasma marker is hydroxyethyl starch which may be particularly useful when the polysaccharide is labelled with a fluorescent dye. Attaching fluorescein to hydroxyethyl starch is not difficult and, should demand be sufficient, it may well become available from manufacturers who are already capable of providing other fluorescent polysaccharides. The clinical benefits of such a development would include more rational schedules of i.v. fluid and blood transfusion management in surgical and intensive care patients.  (+info)

The female reproductive cycle is an important variable in the response to trauma-hemorrhage. (3/161)

Although immune functions in proestrus females are maintained after hemorrhage as opposed to decreased responses in males, it remains unknown whether such a sexual dimorphism also exists with regard to cardiovascular and hepatocellular functions under those conditions. To study this, male and female (estrus and proestrus) rats underwent a 5-cm midline laparotomy and were bled to and maintained at a mean blood pressure of 40 mmHg until 40% of the maximal bleed-out volume was returned in the form of Ringer lactate (RL). Rats were then resuscitated with four times the shed blood volume with RL. At 24 h thereafter, cardiac index; heart performance; hepatocellular function; and plasma estradiol, testosterone, and prolactin levels were measured. Cardiovascular and hepatocellular functions were depressed in males and estrus females (P < 0.05) but were not depressed in proestrus females after resuscitation. Plasma estradiol and prolactin levels were highest in proestrus females (P < 0.05), whereas males had high testosterone and the lowest estradiol levels (P < 0.05). Thus the female reproductive cycle is an important variable in the response to hemorrhage. Because low testosterone and high estradiol and prolactin levels appear to be beneficial for organ functions after trauma-hemorrhage, antagonism of testosterone receptors and/or increases in estradiol and prolactin levels in males and estrus females, respectively, may be novel approaches for improving organ functions under such conditions.  (+info)

Local cerebral blood volume determined by three-dimensional reconstruction of radionuclide scan data. (4/161)

We developed a method to determine in man absolute values of local cerebral blood volume (LCBV) localized throughout the brain in three dimensions and presented in a cross-sectional picture format. Previously, absolute values of LCBV have been determined in vivo by stimulated X-ray fluorescence, but these determinations have been limited to one point in the brain at a time. All other previous estimates of LCBV by external emission counting have been contaminated by the significant contribution of blood in the overlying scalp and cranium. In our method, a transverse section scan is made after the injection of -99m-Tc-labeled red blood cells into a peripheral vein. Data processing then gives a point-to-point estimate of absolute radionuclide concentration analogous to an autoradiograph. After the concentration of blood activity is determined, counting data are converted to a two-dimensional map of LCBV representing a cross section at a known level of the brain. In a series of five baboons, the following equation was obtained for the regression plane that relates LCBV in the center of the brain to arterial carbon dioxide tension (P-ALPHA-CO2) and mean arterial blood pressure (MABP): LCBV equals 2.88 + 0.049P-ALPHA-CO2 MINUS 0.013MABP. In patients, LCBE values ranged from 2 to 4 ml/100 g depending on location; higher values corresponded to regions of cerebral cortex. Differences in blood volumes of focal brain lesions were also quantified.  (+info)

Regulation of extracellular volume and interstitial fluid pressure in rat bone marrow. (5/161)

The volume and fluid pressure characteristics of the intact bone marrow is incompletely understood. We used microspheres and lipoproteins for measurements of intravascular volume (IVV) and EDTA for interstitial fluid volume (IFV) within the rat bone marrow. Interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) was determined with micropipettes connected to a servo-controlled counter-pressure system. Both the microspheres and the lipoproteins yielded estimates of IVV of approximately 1 ml/100 g. After a brief reactive hyperemia, IVV increased to 2.5 ml/100 g, whereas IFV decreased with approximately 1.5 ml/100 g, so that total extracellular volume did not change. Baseline bone marrow IFP was 9.7 mmHg. The hyperemia led to a transient twofold increase in IFP, whereas a marked blood loss decreased IFP by almost one-half. These novel data suggest that extracellular volume and IFP within the bone marrow can be measured with tracer methods and the micropuncture technique. The responses of IVV, IFV, and IFP during changes in blood flow to the bone marrow suggest a tight regulation and are thus compatible with those for a low-compliant tissue.  (+info)

Clinical evaluation of circulating blood volume in critically ill patients--contribution of a clinical scoring system. (6/161)

The circulating blood volume (CBV) of critically ill patients may be difficult to estimate on the basis of history and physical examination. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of seven clinical signs and central venous pressure (CVP) to predict CBV in critically ill patients; CBV was evaluated with the [125I]human serum albumin technique. A scoring system was constructed using a combination of independence Bayes method and logistic regression. Sixty-eight patients constituted a 'model development' sample and 30 patients a validation sample. Thirty-six patients (53%) in the model development sample were found to have a low CBV (measured CBV at least 10% lower than the predicted mean normal CBV). Neither the haemodynamic variables monitored in ICU, nor the spot urinary sodium concentrations were different between patients with and without a low CBV. Individually, none of the clinical signs tested have a good positive or negative predictive value. For CVP, only extreme values seem to have clinical significance. To construct the score, the signs tested were ranked according to their discriminating efficacy. The probability of a low CBV was obtained by adding the weights of each sign tested and converting the score obtained into a probability. On a validation sample of 30 patients, the predictions are reliable as assessed by Z statistics ranging between -2 and +2. Our results suggest that: (1) individually, no clinical sign presented a clinical useful predictive value; and (2) a clinical scoring system may be helpful for the evaluation of CBV in critically ill patients.  (+info)

Mechanisms of edema formation after intracerebral hemorrhage: effects of extravasated red blood cells on blood flow and blood-brain barrier integrity. (7/161)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Red blood cell (RBC) lysis contributes to brain edema formation after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), and RBC hemolysate (oxyhemoglobin) has been implicated to be a spasminogen in subarachnoid hemorrhage. Whether cerebral ischemia contributes to brain edema formation after ICH remains unclear, however. The aims of this study were to test whether extravasation of RBCs induces cerebral ischemia and/or blood-brain barrier disruption in a rat ICH model characterized by perihematomal brain edema. METHODS: In this study, 87 pentobarbital-anesthetized Sprague-Dawley rats were used. In each animal, saline, packed RBCs, or lysed RBCs were injected into the right caudate nucleus. Sham injections served as controls. Regional cerebral blood flow, brain water and ion contents, blood-brain barrier integrity, and plasma volume were measured. RESULTS: Intraparenchymal infusion of lysed RBCs caused severe brain edema by the first day but did not induce ischemic cerebral blood flows. In contrast, blood-brain barrier permeability increased during the first day after infusion of lysed RBCs (a 3-fold increase) and 3 days after infusion of packed RBCs (a 4-fold increase). CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that ischemia is not present at 24 or 72 hours after hematoma induction by injection of intact or lysed RBCs. RBC constituents that appear after delayed lysis, however, increase blood-brain barrier permeability, which contributes to edema formation.  (+info)

Absence of beneficial effect of acute normovolemic hemodilution combined with aprotinin on allogeneic blood transfusion requirements in cardiac surgery. (8/161)

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) in decreasing allogeneic blood requirements remains controversial during cardiac surgery. METHODS: In a prospective, randomized study, 80 adult cardiac surgical patients with normal cardiac function and no high risk of ischemic complications were subjected either to ANH, from a mean hematocrit of 43% to 28%, or to a control group. Aprotinin and intraoperative blood cell salvage were used in both groups. Blood (autologous or allogeneic) was transfused when the hematocrit was less than 17% during cardiopulmonary bypass, less than 25% after cardiopulmonary bypass, or whenever clinically indicated. RESULTS: The amount of whole blood collected during ANH ranged from 10 to 40% of the patients' estimated blood volume. Intraoperative and postoperative blood losses were not different between control and ANH patients (total blood loss, control: 1,411 +/- 570 ml, n = 41; ANH: 1,326 +/- 509 ml, n = 36). Allogeneic blood was given in 29% of control patients (median, 2; range, 1-3 units of packed erythrocytes) and in 33% of ANH patients (median, 2; range, 1-5 units of packed erythrocytes; P = 0.219). Preoperative and postoperative platelet count, prothrombin time, and partial thromboplastin time were similar between groups. Perioperative morbidity and mortality were not different in both groups, and similar hematocrit values were observed at hospital discharge (33.7 +/- 3.9% in the control group and 32.6 +/- 3.7% in the ANH group; nonsignificant) CONCLUSIONS: Hemodilution is not an effective means to lower the risk of allogeneic blood transfusion in elective cardiac surgical patients with normal cardiac function and in the absence of high risk for coronary ischemia, provided standard intraoperative cell saving and high-dose aprotinin are used.  (+info)

Two-dimensional echocardiography can provide serial cross-sectional images of the left ventricular cavity. We examined whether such serial images from steady-state ejecting hearts would allow three-dimensional reconstruction and accurate volume estimation without major geometric assumptions. Cross-circulated, paced dog hearts were suspended in a blood-filled tank. Serial cross-sectional images were taken at 3-mm intervals along the vertical axis. Left ventricular cavity and muscle areas of each image were planimetered with a light-pen system and summated for volume: total volume = sigma (areas x 3 mm). Direct left ventricular volume was measured through the cardiac cycle with a volumetric chamber connected to a balloon in the ejecting left ventricle. In six hearts, 67 separate direct volume measurements (range 9.5--54.7 ml) from various points in the cardiac cycle were compared with the simultaneous echo volume measurements. By least squares linear regression, echo volume = 1.01 (direct volume) ...

On Solaris you need to stop the volume management if you like to use the USCSI fallback SCSI transport code. Even things like cdrecord -scanbus will not work if the volume management is running. Disks made in Track At Once mode are not suitable as a master for direct mass production by CD manufacturers. You will need the disk at once option to record such disks. Nevertheless the disks made in Track At Once will normally be read in all CD players. Some old audio CD players however may produce a two second click between two audio tracks. The minimal size of a track is 4 seconds or 300 sectors. If you write smaller tracks, the CD-Recorder will add dummy blocks. This is not an error, even though the SCSI-error message looks this way. Cdrecord has been tested on an upgraded Philips CDD-521 recorder at single and double speed on a SparcStation 20/502 with no problems, slower computer systems should work also. The newer Philips/HP/Plasmon/Grundig drives as well as Yamaha CDR-100 and CDR-102 work also. ...
Because of the strength in providing high contrasts of soft tissues Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has been an important medical modality in diagnosis of tissue characterization such as tissue classification and analysis as well as quantitative imaging such as partial volume estimation. Over the past years, numerous techniques have been developed for MRI and can be roughly categorized into two principal approaches. One is a structural approach which is primarily based on spatial correlation among MR image pixels, referred to as voxels. This type of approach is considered as a spatial domain-based clustering technique, examples include edge detection, region growing, segmentation etc. As a result, a structural approach is generally used for tissue characterization such as segmentation, classification, texture analysis. The other is a statistical approach which is essentially a parametric technique based on Finite Gaussian Mixture (FGM) models coupled with Markov Random Field (MRF) to capture ...

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. These parameters were analyzed using receiver operator characteristics to derive optimal thresholds based on time from stroke onset-to-CTP or to reperfusion. ANOVA and linear regression were used to test whether the derived CTP thresholds were ...
Although biplane right anterior oblique-left anterior oblique (RAO/LAO) quantitative left ventricular (LV) angiography is commonly performed, justification of LV volume calculation using the area length method (originally formulated from anteroposterior-lateral (AP/LAT) angiograms) has been limited. To assess whether RAO/LAO and AP/LAT LV volumes are similar when computed by the area length method formula, we performed biplane cine LV angiography in both RAO/LAO and AP/LAT projections in random sequence in 21 patients and four LV models of known volume. LV silhouettes were drawn independently by two trained observers. Calculated angiographic volume of the models correlated almost exactly with their true volume (r = 0.999), establishing the absolute accuracy of this system. Rotation of the LV models through 90 degrees of obliquity at 10 degree increments demonstrated a mean change from true volume of only -5.4 +/- 0.7% (p less than 0.001). In the patient studies, rotation to the 30 degree RAO/60 ...
The Geselowitz relation is a volume-integral formulation of impedance measured between electrodes used to identify the most important influences on the measurement. Cross sectional plots of the formulation show the spatial distribution and relative importance of contributions to the total measurement. This formulation was used to analyze the admittance method, which is a technique used to separate blood and muscle signals.. Conductance catheters are used to estimate blood volume in the largest chamber of the heart, the left ventricle. Four inline electrodes are used to perform the measurement where the outer two carry an electric current and inner two measure the resulting voltage. The measured conductance of the blood indicates the volume in the left ventricle. Parallel structures also contribute to the measurement, and the most significant is cardiac muscle. The admittance method uses the capacitive component of admittance to identify the muscle signal, which is due solely to the complex ...
In fUS, detailed images of cerebral blood dynamics are captured by visualizing the minute motions induced by moving blood cells and possibly other vascular related motion such as dilation and vasoconstriction. Changes in the dynamics of the cerebral blood supply to specific locations may reflect local changes of metabolic activity upon neuronal activation.

Angiographic methods can provide valuable information on vessel morphology and hemodynamics, but are often qualitative in nature, somewhat limiting their ability for comparison across arteries and subjects. In this work we present a method for quantifying absolute blood volume flow rates within large vessels using dynamic angiographic data. First, a kinetic model incorporating relative blood volume, bolus dispersion and signal attenuation is fitted to the data. A self-calibration method is also described for both 2D and 3D data sets to convert the relative blood volume parameter into absolute units. The parameter values are then used to simulate the signal arising from a very short bolus, in the absence of signal attenuation, which can be readily encompassed within a vessel mask of interest. The volume flow rate can then be determined by calculating the resultant blood volume within the vessel mask divided by the simulated bolus duration. This method is applied to non-contrast magnetic resonance imaging
Objective: To determine the accuracy of volumetric analysis of teeth in vivo using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). Materials and Methods: The physical volume (Vw) of 24 bicuspids extracted for orthodontic purposes (16 were imaged with the I-CAT and 8 with the CB MercuRay) were determined using the water displacement technique. Corresponding pretreatment CBCT image data were uploaded into Amira 4.0 for segmentation and radiographic volume (Va). All measurements were performed twice by two observers. The statistical difference between Vw and Va was assessed using a paired Hest. The intraobserver and interobserver reliability were determined by calculating Pearson correlation coefficients and intraclass correlation coefficients. Results: The overall mean Vw of teeth specimens was 0.553 +/- 0.082 cm(3), while the overall mean Va was 0.548 +/- 0.079 cm(3) (0.529 +/- 0.078 cm(3) for observer 1 and 0.567 +/- 0.085 cm(3) for observer 2). There were statistically significant differences between Va ...
Dynamic and flow-based parameters are more informative than conventional parameters in determining fluid responsiveness and may help you avoid excessive and insufficient fluid administration.7 Clinical studies have shown that conventional volume management methods, based on conventional parameters, are misleading and insensitive.6 Advanced hemodynamic parameters such as stroke volume (SV) and stroke volume variation (SVV), are key to optimal fluid administration.. SVV has been proven to be a highly sensitive and specific indicator for preload responsiveness when managing perfusion. As a dynamic parameter, SVV has been shown to be an accurate predictor of fluid responsiveness in loading conditions induced by mechanical ventilation.6,8,9. ...
Introduction Placental dysfunction leads to intrauterine compromise and stillbirth. Hypoxia is usually cited as the underlying mechanism in pregnancies complicated by hypertensive disorders, and syncytial deportation (inferred by the presence of syncytial knots) is commonly found on light microscopy. It has been suggested that the same mechanism may underpin intrauterine death in diabetic pregnancy. We set out to test the hypothesis that syncytial knot formation was a more common finding in diabetic pregnancy.. ...
We introduce a novel contrast mechanism for imaging blood flow by use of magnetomotive optical Doppler tomography (MM-ODT), which combines an externally applied temporally oscillating high-strength magnetic field with ODT to detect erythrocytes moving according to the field gradient. Hemoglobin contrast was demonstrated in a capillary tube filled with moving blood by imaging the Doppler frequency shift, which was observed independently of blood flow rate and direction. Results suggest that MM-ODT may be a promising technique with which to image blood flow.. © 2006 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...

Analysis of the waveform provides information on a range of cardiac parameters to be derived.
The results were somewhat surprising. In preparing their hypothesis, the research team estimated that smaller particles were probably the most effective since they would move the most in collisions with blood cells, much like what happens when a small ball bounces off a larger one. But just the opposite proved true. The smaller particles appeared to skirt through the mass of moving blood cells and were less likely to experience the trampoline effect and get bounced to the cell-free layer, says Ma.. Ma proposed the study after talking to a UConn pharmaceutical scientist about drug development at a campus event five years ago.. We had a great conversation about how drugs are made and then I asked, But how can you be sure where the particles go? Ma recalls, laughing. Im an engineer. Thats how we think. I was curious. This was an engineering question. So I said, Lets write a proposal!. The proposal was funded by the National Science Foundations Early-concept Grants for Exploratory ...
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 ...

INTRODUCTION: Cerebral vasospasm is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) surviving the initial ictus. Commonly used techniques for vasospasm assessment are digital subtraction angiography and transcranial Doppler sonography. These techniques can reliably identify only the major vessel spasm and fail to estimate its haemodynamic significance. To overcome these issues and to enable comprehensive non-invasive assessment of vasospasm inside the interventional suite, a novel protocol involving measurement of parenchymal blood volume (PBV) using C-arm flat detector computed tomography (FDCT) was implemented. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients from the neuro-intensive treatment unit (ITU) with suspected vasospasm following aneurysmal SAH were scanned with a biplane C-arm angiography system using an intravenous contrast injection protocol. The PBV maps were generated using prototype software. Contemporaneous clinically indicated MR scan including
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 ...

Previous studies applying automatic preprocessing methods on Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (sMRI) report inconsistent neuroanatomical abnormalities in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this study we investigate inter-method differences as a possible cause behind these inconsistent findings. In particular, we focus on the estimation of the following brain volumes: gray matter (GM), white matter (WM), cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and total intra cranial volume (TIV). T1-weighted sMRIs of 417 ASD subjects and 459 typically developing controls (TDC) from the ABIDE dataset were estimated using three popular preprocessing methods: SPM, FSL, and FreeSurfer (FS). Brain volumes estimated by the three methods were correlated but had significant inter-method biases; except TIVSPM versus TIVFS, all inter-method differences were significant. ASD versus TDC group differences in all brain volume estimates were dependent on the method used. SPM showed that TIV, GM, and CSF volumes of ASD were larger than TDC
The 1,295 ha (3,200 ac) Swanton Pacific Ranch (Swanton) and the associated Valencia Tract in Santa Cruz County have been managed by California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) since 1987. Swantons Valencia Tract is a 239 ha (591 ac) property located north of Watsonville, California. Cal Poly forest managers have conducted two harvest entries since acquiring ownership of the Valencia tract utilizing a modified BDq individual tree selection approach. A 10-year continuous forest re-inventory (CFI) was completed for the Valencia coast redwood tract to update and enhance the growth and yield analysis needed for the Non-Industrial Timber Management Plan (NTMP) sustainability analysis.. The California Growth and Yield Modeling Cooperative -Forest and Stand Evaluation Environment (FORSEE) program and 10-year CFI data were utilized to perform a sustainability analysis comparing trees per acre, basal area per acre, quadratic mean diameter, and gross volume per acre. Several tree ...
Moving blood throughout the body, the circulatory system, also called the cardiovascular system, comprises 4 parts, the heart, arteries, blood, capillaries, and veins. This system stabilizes body temperature and pH, maintains homeostasis, moves nutrients (such as amino acids and electrolytes), oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, and blood cells into and out of the cells nourishing and fighting disease, while simultaneously keeping us alive [1-2].. This transport of oxygenated blood from the lungs and heart throughout the body occurs through the arteries. As heart disease remains the number one cause of death, coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart attack, arrhythmia, and other cardiovascular conditions such as hypertension and high blood cholesterol levels can damage the cardiovascular system [3-4].. We often overlook the importance of sufficiently effective blood flow to the brain, when considering the mood and cognitive disorders. In studies, we find an improvement in mood and cognition, ...

The circulation system moves blood through the body, and veins are an important part of that system. Most veins carry deoxygenated blood from bodily tissue back to the heart, where it receives fresh oxygen. Veins must work against gravity to return blood the heart. The muscles of the leg help that process, and valves within the veins usually keep the moving blood from flowing back down toward the feet. Because the veins in the legs are always fighting gravity and dependent on the…. ...

The aim of this work was to use intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) to provide a non-invasive in vivo assessment of the function of the maternal spiral arteries that feed the placenta in normal pregnancy and in pre-eclampsia. Eleven normal pregnant women were scanned at 16, 22, 29 and 35 weeks gestation in a longitudinal study. Nine normal pregnant women and six women with pre-eclampsia were scanned in a cross-sectional study, within 10 days of delivery. The MRI IVIM technique was used to measure the moving blood fraction (f%) at the basal plate. There was no evidence that f% changed with gestational age (P = 0.84), but considering the cross-sectional groups, f% in women with pre-eclampsia was reduced compared with normal pregnancy (mean +/- SD: 36 +/- 5% and 27 +/- 5%; P | 0.005). In conclusion, pregnancies complicated by pre-eclampsia exhibit a reduced fraction of moving blood within the region of the spiral arteries. IVIM performed in the mid-trimester may provide an early means of predicting those
A method and device for the continuous real-time monitoring of relative blood volume change, based on registration of blood hemoglobin concentration, during long periods of time, such as dialysis session. A method and device for cardiac output measurement, based on optical dilution technique, during dialysis, surgeries, intensive care procedure. The effects of blood electrolyte composition change which result in a change of light beam geometry are eliminated by the relative orientation between a light source and a single light or photodetector. An illumination axis and a detection axis are oriented in an offset, non colinear configuration at a sufficient angle to substantially eliminate the scattering properties of the blood. A primary implementation of the device is extracorporeal paths, such as hemodialysis tubing systems, artery-vein extracorporeal artificial shunts, other extracorporeal systems. It also may be applied to vessels, tissues or to body parts being capable of transillumination.

A method, system, and computer program product for identifying and reserving suitable replacement storage devices for use when a storage device underlying a logical volume fails or when the size of the volume is to be increased. Replacement devices are reserved if they conform to the intent of a creator of the logical volume and at the time of creation or reconfiguration of the logical volume. Volume management operations like resizing the volume and evacuating data from the volume use the reserved disks that have already been allocated as suitable to preserve the intent of the creator of the logical volume. Reserving replacement disks in advance ensures that a backup disk is available and eliminates the need to perform a lengthy, time-consuming search for a suitable replacement disk that conforms to the intent of the logical volume.

One metre billets of known volume were piled in 1 m,sup,3,/sup, stacks to estimate a stacked to solid volume conversion ratio. An average conversion factor of 0.44 for stacked to solid volume was calculated. Mean stackwood yield (m,sup,3,/sup,) per m,sup,2,/sup, of basal area removed was 16.1 m,sup,3,/sup,m,sup,-2,/sup,. Stand basal area (m,sup,2,/sup,ha,sup,-1,/sup,) and height (m) varied between sample plots. There was no significant correlation between total plot basal area (m,sup,2,/sup,) and yield (m,sup,3,/sup,) per m,sup,2,/sup, basal area removed, but there was a significant correlation between tree height (m) and yield. Regression models of stackwood yield against basal area removed and mean height were developed for the estimation of stackwood volume for miornbo woodland in Malawi. ...
The observations presented in this paper collectively indicate that high-frequency three-dimensional power Doppler ultrasound can be used to assess functional neoangiogenesis in GEM prostate cancer models. The power Doppler signal is proportional to the concentration of blood cells flowing at velocities high enough to be detected by the Doppler system (e.g., , 3 mm/s in this study). The CPD is therefore considered an estimate of the fraction of the tissue volume that is occupied by moving blood ( 23). Tumor CPD data reflect flow in intermediate-sized (e.g., ,100 μm diameter) arterioles and venules and arteriovenous shunts. Vessels imaged by power Doppler are functional in the sense that they support active blood flow. This point is an important aspect of interpreting Doppler images of tumors because as few as 20% of the vessels in a tumor may be perfused at any given instant, and tumor perfusion varies both spatially and temporally ( 19). In addition, unlike many other imaging techniques, ...
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 ...
Keeping your legs elevated helps your veins return blood to your heart, as veins are constantly fighting gravity in moving blood back up the legs. Elevating your legs above your heart a few times a day can be beneficial in improving blood flow. Other methods for preventing varicose veins may also exist. Some doctors recommend avoiding standing or sitting for too long, as this may inhibit blood flow. Walking or moving your legs once in a while encourages muscle contraction and helps your veins return blood to the heart. Speak with a vein specialist for more information about varicose veins prevention.. ...
Before the pump is activated, all air is evacuated from the device, the left ventricle and the aorta. The pump is switched on, and if cardiopulmonary bypass was used, the patient is weaned from the heart-lung bypass machine. Due to the small size of the device and less invasive surgery, the Jarvik 2000 also can be successfully implanted without the use of a heart-lung bypass machine. See Off-pump Insertion of the Jarvik 2000 Left Ventricular Assist Device, by Craig H. Selzman, MD. The CardioThoracic Surgery Network, February 21, 2008.. Even before the incisions are closed, the Jarvik 2000 goes to work moving blood through the heart and restoring a physiologic equilibrium to the body. The implantation process usually takes 2-5 hours.. As with open heart surgery of any kind, there are risks, including death. Each patient should discuss possible risks and benefits with his/her own doctor before deciding what treatment is best.. ...
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.
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 ...
