Effect of portal-systemic anastomosis on renal haemodynamics in cirrhosis. (1/366)

In 12 patients with portal hypertension and repeated bleedings from oesophageal varices the central haemodynamics, portal pressure, and mean renal blood flow (RBF) were investigated immediately before and two to seven months after portal-systemic shunt. Cardiac output increased significantly, whereas arterial pressure was unchanged after operation. RBF, which was initially less than in controls, did not change. As portal pressure decreased significantly, a direct portal-renal, neural, or humoral reflex mechanism does not explain the subnormal RBF in cirrhosis. As plasma volume was large and unchanged after operation a "diminished circulating plasma volume" is an unlikely explanation. Therefore, on the basis of the present observations, previously postulated causes of renal hypoperfusion in cirrhosis need revision.  (+info)

Chronic retinal vein occlusion in glaucoma. (2/366)

Asymptomatic chronic retinal vein occlusion that occurs in chronic simple glaucoma is described. The condition is characterized by marked elevation of retinal vein pressure with collateral vessels and vein loops at the optic disc in cases of central vein occlusion, or retinal veno-venous anastomoses along a horizontal line temporal and nasal to the disc in hemisphere vein occlusion. No patient had visible arterial changes, capillary closure, fluorescein leakage, or haemorrhages. The vein occlusion was not limited to "end stage" glaucoma. The role of increased intraocular pressure and glaucomatous enlargement of the optic cup with retinal vein distortion in the pathogenesis of the condition was stressed. Follow-up of these patients revealed persistence of the retinal vein occlusion shown by elevated retinal vein pressures. This would reduce effective perfusion of the inner retina and optic disc and may affect the long-term visual prognosis.  (+info)

Upright posture reduces forearm blood flow early in exercise. (3/366)

The hypothesis that upright posture could modulate forearm blood flow (FBF) early in exercise was tested in six subjects. Both single (2-s duration) and repeated (1-s work/2-s rest cadence for 12 contractions) handgrip contractions (12 kg) were performed in the supine and 70 degrees head-up tilt (HUT) positions.

Brachial artery mean blood velocity (MBV; Doppler) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) (Finapres) were measured continuously to calculate FBF and vascular conductance. MAP was not changed with posture. Antecubital venous pressure (Pv) was reduced in HUT (4.55 +/- 1.3 mmHg) compared with supine (11.3 +/- 1.9 mmHg) (P < 0.01). For the repeated contractions, total excess FBF (TEF) was reduced in the HUT position compared with supine (P < 0.02). With the single contractions, peak FBF, peak vascular conductance, and TEF during 30 s after release of the contraction were reduced in the HUT position compared with supine (P < 0.01). Sympathetic blockade augmented the FBF response to a single contraction in HUT (P < 0.05) and tended to increase this response while supine (P = 0.08). However, sympathetic blockade did not attenuate the effect of HUT on peak FBF and TEF after the single contractions. Raising the arm above heart level while supine, to diminish Pv, resulted in FBF dynamics that were similar to those observed during HUT. Alternatively, lowering the arm while in HUT to restore Pv to supine levels restored the peak FBF and vascular conductance responses, but not TEF response, after a single contraction. It was concluded that upright posture diminishes the hyperemic response early in exercise. The data demonstrate that sympathetic constriction restrains the hyperemic response to a single contraction but does not modulate the postural reduction in postcontraction hyperemia. Therefore, the attenuated blood flow response in the HUT posture was largely related to factors associated with diminished venous pressures and not sympathetic vasoconstriction.  (+info)

Studies in calf venous pump function utilizing a two-valve experimental model. (4/366)

OBJECTIVES: to explore the hydrodynamic mechanisms involved in the regulation of ambulatory venous pressure. DESIGN: an experimental model of calf venous pump was constructed with collapsible tubes and valves. MATERIAL: the model consisted of a conduit and a pump with an intervening competent valve. Another valve that could allow reflux into the pump was mounted above the pump. METHODS: conduit pressure and recovery times were monitored under conditions of different degrees of ejection fraction and reflux into the pump. Model variables included using poorly compliant tubes for the pump, the conduit and for both the pump and conduit. RESULTS: the latex tube exhibited a non-linear volume-pressure relationship and a bi-modal regimen of compliance. This bestowed pressure-buffering properties. Ambulatory venous hypertension resulted when reflux beyond buffering capacity occurred. Substituting less compliant PTFE for latex at the pump had a relatively minor effect on post-ejection pressure and recovery times. Using PTFE at the conduit had a profound but divergent effect on both of these parameters. Conduit capacitance reduction had a similar effect. CONCLUSION: conduit elastance plays a significant role in the regulation of ambulatory venous pressure in this experimental model. The hydrodynamic principles illustrated by the model may enhance our understanding of the human calf venous pump.  (+info)

Responses of group III and IV muscle afferents to distension of the peripheral vascular bed. (5/366)

This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that group III and IV afferents with endings in skeletal muscle signal the distension of the peripheral vascular network. The responses of these slowly conducting afferents to pharmacologically induced vasodilation and to acute obstruction of the venous drainage of the hindlimbs were studied in barbiturate-anesthetized cats. Afferent impulses arising from endings in the triceps surae muscles were recorded from the L(7) and S(1) dorsal roots. Fifteen of the 48 group IV and 3 of the 19 group III afferents tested were stimulated by intra-aortic injections of papaverine (2-2.5 mg/kg). Sixty-two percent of the afferents that responded to papaverine also responded to isoproterenol (50 microg/kg). Seven of the 36 group IV and 2 of the 12 group III afferents tested were excited by acute distension of the hindlimb venous system. Four of the seven group IV afferents responding to venous distension also responded to papaverine (57 vs. 13% for the nonresponding). Finally, we observed that most of the group IV afferents that were excited by dynamic contractions of the triceps surae muscles also responded either to venous distension or to vasodilatory agents. These results are consistent with the histological findings that a large number of group IV endings have their receptive fields close to the venules and suggest that they can be stimulated by the deformation of these vascular structures when peripheral conductance increases. Moreover, such a mechanism offers the possibility of encoding both the effects of muscle contraction through intramuscular pressure changes and the distension of the venular system, thereby monitoring the activity of the veno-muscular pump.  (+info)

Restrictive pericarditis. (6/366)

BACKGROUND: Pericardial thickening is an uncommon complication of cardiac surgery. OBJECTIVES: To study pericardial thickening as the cause of severe postoperative venous congestion. SUBJECTS: Two men, one with severe aortic stenosis and single coronary artery disease, and one with coronary artery disease after an old inferior infarction. Both had coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Doppler echocardiography, and cardiac catheterisation. RESULTS: Venous pressure was raised in both patients. MRI showed mildly thickened pericardium, and cardiac catheterisation indicated diastolic equalization of pressures in the four chambers. Jugular venous pulse showed a dominant "Y" descent coinciding with early diastolic flow in the superior vena cava, and mitral and tricuspid Doppler forward flow proved restrictive physiology. The clinical background suggested pericardial disease so both patients had pericardiectomy. This proved the pericardium to be thickened; the extent of fibrosis also involved the epicardium. CONCLUSIONS: Although rare, restrictive pericarditis (restrictive ventricular physiology resulting from pericardial disease) should be considered to be a separate diagnostic entity because its pathological basis and treatment are different from intrinsic myocardial disease. This diagnosis may be confirmed by standard investigational techniques or may require diagnostic thoracotomy.  (+info)

Effects of protamine on nitric oxide level in the pulmonary circulation. (7/366)

Protamine reversal of heparin anticoagulation often causes systemic hypotension by releasing nitric oxide (NO) from vascular endothelium. We investigated the hypothesis that protamine prevents severe pulmonary vasoconstriction by increasing NO. Twenty patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass graft surgery were included in the study. Nitrite and nitrate levels--as end-metabolites of NO--were measured in blood samples obtained before and after protamine administration. Mean arterial pressure, heart rate, mean pulmonary artery pressure, central venous pressure and left atrial pressure were noted as hemodynamic data. Nitrite levels were 4.64 +/- 0.67 mumol in the right atrium and 4.84 +/- 0.95 mumol in the left atrium before protamine administration. The difference was insignificant statistically. These measurements were 4.85 +/- 0.92 in the right atrium and 5.28 +/- 0.66 mumol in the left atrium after protamine administration. This increase was significant (p < 0.05). The measurements of nitrate levels were completely parallel with those of nitrite. Mean arterial pressures were 78.9 +/- 7.59 mm-Hg before protamine and 74.1 +/- 8.55 mm-Hg after protamine (p = 0.03). The changes in other hemodynamic parameters were not significant. Protamine augments NO production and prevents the pulmonary circulation from possible vasoconstriction.  (+info)

The effect of pregnancy on the lower-limb venous system of women with varicose veins. (8/366)

OBJECTIVES: to assess the effect of pregnancy on the lower-limb venous system of women with varicose veins. Design a longitudinal prospective study of 11 pregnant women, with varicose vein disease. METHODS: eleven pregnant women with varicose veins were recruited as part of a larger study. Veins were assessed in both lower limbs using colour-flow duplex scanning at a 75 degrees head-up tilt. The diameter and velocity and duration of reflux were measured in each vein at 12, 20, 26, 34, 38 weeks gestation and 6 weeks postpartum. RESULTS: eleven women had reflux and varicose veins demonstrated at first scan. All veins dilated with increasing gestation. This was maximal in the superficial system, reaching significance (p+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Measurement of episcleral venous pressure. AU - Sit, Arthur J. AU - McLaren, Jay W.. PY - 2011/9. Y1 - 2011/9. N2 - Episcleral venous pressure (EVP) is an important determinant of intraocular pressure (IOP) and can be measured by using various techniques. It has been measured non-invasively by estimating the pressure required to compress an episcleral vein to a predetermined endpoint. However, the lack of objective endpoints makes EVP measurement in humans uncertain, and a wide range of mean EVP has been reported in the literature. We review the evidence for physiologic regulation of EVP and its role in glaucoma therapy, techniques that have been used to measure EVP and the need for objective measurements, and reported values for EVP. We also review recent progress toward developing an objective technique for EVP measurement.. AB - Episcleral venous pressure (EVP) is an important determinant of intraocular pressure (IOP) and can be measured by using various techniques. It has ...
Once a patient develops portal hypertension this becomes the pacemaker marking the progression of liver disease.. Portal pressure is usually measured indirectly by evaluating wedged or occluded hepatic venous pressure.22, 23 This is a well established technique that consists of introduction of a catheter into the right hepatic vein after which the catheter is advanced until it is wedged or a balloon is inflated.24-26 The occluded area is quite large and larger than the area with the catheter wedged, and therefore the pressure obtained is the average pressure of many hepatic sinusoids; this reduces the possibility of sampling error due to heterogeneity in the progression of fibrosis in different areas of the liver. The area of the liver that is investigated with this method is much larger than the comparatively minute area analysed by liver biopsy. The occluded or wedged pressure is corrected by subtracting the free hepatic venous pressure or the pressure of the inferior vena cava, the result ...

Although the hemodynamic effects of hydralazine, enalapril, and nitroglycerin have been studied extensively in both animal and human experiments, to the best of our knowledge the effects of these drugs on the splanchnic capacitance vessels in the setting of acute heart failure have not been studied previously. Our results indicate that all three vasodilator agents produced favorable hemodynamic changes. However, there were important differences between drugs in terms of their effects on the splanchnic capacitance vessels. Nitroglycerin had the greatest effect, increasing SVV7 by 32% (P,.0001), and hydralazine had the least effect, increasing SVV7 by only 3% (P=NS). The effect of enalaprilat was intermediate; it increased SVV7 by 14% (P,.001). The second most important finding of our investigations was the close relation between the degree of splanchnic venodilation and the reduction in LVEDP. Nitroglycerin, which had the greatest splanchnic venodilatory effect, also had the greatest effect on ...
The structural consequences of chronic liver disease are described as a series of liver disease `stages with scarring and architectural change that eventually destroys and replaces the normal lobular structure of the liver. Fibrosis (`excess collagen) and stage have been confused in histological staging systems. Fibrosis is part of increasing liver disease stage, but fibrosis and stage are different. Staging liver disease is important in routine histopathological assessment. Measurement of liver fibrosis is another process. The collagenous proportion of a liver biopsy [collagen proportionate area (CPA)] correlates with hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG), which is of recognized prognostic value. CPA at 1 year post-transplantation in hepatitis C virus-infected patients predicts subsequent clinical decompensation. CPA in cirrhotic patients predicts decompensation more accurately than staging or HVPG. The `cirrhosis stage category has poor prognostic power, and CPA effectively substages ...

We included 777 patients [age: 63 ± 15 years; female gender: 274 (35 %); simplified acute physiology score II: 55.9 ± 20.6; ICU length of stay: 6 days (interquartile range (IQR) 3-13); ICU mortality: 32.8 %] and surveyed 2,694 FBs. At enrolment mean arterial pressure was 63 mmHg (IQR 55-71). The most frequent triggers of FB were hypotension, low urine output, tachycardia, skin mottling and hyperlactataemia. Amount of fluid given at each FB was highly variable between centres. Crystalloids were used in 91 % (2,394/2,635) and synthetic colloids in 3.3 % (87/2,635) of FBs. Overall, clinicians used any kind of haemodynamic assessment (central venous pressure measurement, predictive indices of fluid responsiveness, echocardiography, cardiac output monitoring or a combination of these) in 23.6 % (635/2,694) of all FBs surveyed, with an important between-centre heterogeneity.. ...

Jon-Emile S. Kenny MD [@heart_lung]. Background. If venous pressure were always the downstream pressure of an artery, then when flow is zero, the arterial pressure should equal the venous pressure. For example, if one were to measure the coronary artery pressure and coronary sinus pressure at zero flow, their pressures should be equal. Yet, this has been done - when flow is zero in the hearts vascular tree, an instantaneous measurement of arterial and venous pressure reveals a large gradient. How can this be so? The reason is likely pre-capillary arterial tone, which prevents flow below a certain threshold pressure in the artery. This threshold pressure is called the critical closing pressure [Pcc] and creates vascular waterfall [VW]. VW simply means that the downstream [venous] pressure no longer regulates flow, just as the height of a waterfall does not affect the volume of water per unit time rolling over its crest.. Maintaining a Pcc in low flow states may be beneficial to maintain a ...

The aim of present study was to evaluate relationships between degree of portal hypertension, severity of the disease, and bleeding status in patients with liver cirrhosis. Patients and methods. All study patients with liver cirrhosis underwent hepatic venous pressure gradient measurements, endoscopy, clinical and biochemical evaluation. Liver function was evaluated according to Child-Turcotte-Pugh (Childs) scoring system. Patients with decompensated cirrhosis (presence of severe ascites, acute variceal bleeding occurring within 14 days, hepatorenal syndrome, cardiopulmonary disorders, transaminase levels >10 times higher the upper normal limit), active alcohol intake, use of antiviral therapy and/or beta-blockers were excluded from the study. Results. One hundred twenty-eight patients with liver cirrhosis (male/female, 67/61; mean age, 53.8±12.7 years) were included into the study. Etiology of cirrhosis was viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, cryptogenic and miscellaneous reasons in 57, 49,
Dr Massimo Pinzani and colleagues from Italy evaluated the ability of liver stiffness measurement vs hepatic venous pressure gradient to to predict severe portal hypertension.. The research team assessed 61 consecutive patients with Hepatitis C virus-related chronic liver disease.. The researchers found a strong relationship between liver stiffness measurement and hepatic venous pressure gradient measurements in the overall population.. The correlation was excellent for hepatic venous pressure gradient values less than 10 or 12 mm Hg.. However, the team noted that linear regression analysis was not optimal for hepatic venous pressure gradient values 10 mm Hg or 12 mm Hg.. The area under the receiver of operator curve for the prediction of hepatic venous pressure gradient for 10 and 12 mm Hg were 0.99 and 0.92, respectively.. The team noted that at liver stiffness measurement cutoff values of 14 kPa and 18 kPa, sensitivity was 97% and 94%, respectively.. The researchers observed that in patients ...
Therefore, an alternative, non-invasive technique allowing clinicians to diagnose and grade PH in patients with cirrhosis and that could replace HVPG is needed. Transient elastography (TE) has been established as a non-invasive method of measuring liver stiffness due to its diagnostic accuracy in hepatic fibrosis [7]. Accumulating evidence suggests that TE adequately reflects the findings of HVPG, indicating that it is a useful modality for evaluating PH and cirrhotic complications [8-14]. However, some studies have reported conflicting results indicating TE is not sufficiently accurate to replace HVPG due to its insufficient sensitivity or specificity [15]. Hence, controversy remains regarding the usefulness of TE for assessing PH. Systematic reviews (SRs) and meta-analyses (MAs) have facilitated objective evaluation of existing evidence [16-20]. Shi et al. [21] reported the results of their MA for TE in the diagnosis of PH and esophageal varices and further studies should be performed to ...
Restrictive cardiomyopathies (RCM) are indolent disabling diseases resulting from pathophysiologic processes that induce predominant diastolic chamber dysfunction with lesser impairment of systolic performance. RCM is characterized by small stiff ventricles with progressive impairment of diastolic filling, leading to the hemodynamic conundrum of low preload but high filling pressures (Figure 24-1). This pattern of diastolic dysfunction leads to dilated atria and elevated mean atrial pressures, resulting clinically in biventricular backward failure manifest as pulmonary venous congestion (dyspnea) as well as systemic venous pressure elevation (peripheral edema). Systolic function is preserved in most cases, depending on the underlying cause (at least in the presenting stages of most of the underlying diseases). However, despite intact systolic function, the restrictive constraints on true ventricular preload limit stroke volume, thereby resulting in low cardiac output (fatigue) and ultimately ...
In Defense of the Central Venous Pressure. Jon-Emile S. Kenny M.D.. In the waning days of my fellowship I received a hemoptysis consult in the cardiac care unit. Sifting through CT scans, I overheard two house-officers giving sign-out for the evening. When reviewing the clinical data, one of the residents referred to the central venous pressure [CVP] as a random number generator. I spied them, gave a stern look and recalled being on morning rounds as a sleep-deprived intern; I was mercilessly grilled on the nuances of the central venous pressure and its measurement. I paused and thought: is this what were teaching housestaff? That this measurement is random?. The Venetian Marionette. Years ago, while strolling the promenade along Venice Beach, I saw a young street performer. He was a puppeteer, with an oddly dressed marionette; from the corner of my eye it appeared that his control over his puppet was poor. The marionette haphazardly bobbed up and down, extremities akimbo in utter randomness. ...
We developed a method to measure the compliance, defined as ΔVΔP, of the total systemic vascular bed (Ct) without stopping systemic flow. In 10 open-chest dogs, venous return (and cardiac output) was maintained at a constant level by inserting a perfusion pump (with no reservoir) between the caval veins and the right atrium. About 5% of the estimated total blood volume was withdrawn from the dog within 45 seconds. Resultant changes in central venous pressure were measured 10, 30, 60, 120, and 180 seconds after the volume change. The bled volume was then reinfused to repeat similar venous pressure measurements for another 180 seconds. The measurements were repeated after slightly increasing the blood volume or sectioning the vagi. The mean value of Ct measured 10 seconds after hemorrhage or reinfusion was 1.96 ± 0.10 (SE) ml/mm Hg/kg body weight before vagotomy. Paired t-tests indicated no significant difference between measurements of bleeding and reinfusion, measurements with different ...
BACKGROUND: Two algorithms based on sequential measurements of liver and spleen stiffness using two-dimensional shearwave elastography (2D-SWE) have been recently proposed to estimate clinically significant portal hypertension (hepatic venous pressure gradient [HVPG] ≥10 mm Hg) in patients with cirrhosis, with excellent diagnostic accuracy. AIM: To validate externally these algorithms in a large cohort of patients with cirrhosis. METHODS: One hundred and ninety-one patients with stable cirrhosis (Child-Pugh class A 39%, B 29% and C 31%) who underwent liver and spleen stiffness measurements using 2D-SWE at the time of HVPG measurement were included ...
Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is the result of untreated or unsuccessfully treated non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a disease that afflicts millions of people worldwide and represents the next pharma gold-rush estimated to be worth between 35-40 billion dollars by 2025. In the later stages of NASH-cirrhosis patients can develop esophageal varices (bulging veins in the esophagus) and are the number one complication leading to death among NASH patients. In the USA alone, there is an estimated 1.5-3 million patients suffering from NASH-cirrhosis without varices. And therein lies one of Galectin Therapeutics (GALT) key advantages.. From Galectins Phase 3 NASH Press Release:. The primary endpoint will be chosen from two endpoints that the FDA agreed may be acceptable: The change in hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG), which is a measure of liver blood pressure, or the progression to esophageal varices. Both of these endpoints were achieved unequivocally in the patients without ...
Studies were performed in 16 adult mongrel dogs weighing 25 to 32 kg; additional dogs were used for preliminary studies as detailed in the text. The dogs were anesthetized (sodium pentobarbital, 30 mg/kg i.v.) and mechanically ventilated. In the supine position, the left femoral vein was cannulated for fluid infusion. Both femoral arteries were dissected for later cannulation. A micro-tipped manometer (Millar Instruments, Houston, TX) was inserted into the left ventricle through the right carotid artery to monitor left ventricular pressure. The left carotid artery was also cannulated with a micro-tipped manometer to measure aortic pressure (AoP). The right jugular vein was cannulated for central venous pressure measurement.. Through a midline laparotomy, both ureters were individually cannulated to quantify urine output and to obtain urine samples separately from each kidney. The abdominal wall was then tightly closed to prevent hypothermia and water loss.. Thereafter, the dog was repositioned ...

I think its high time someone published the rules for using elevator buttons, especially the ones outside (that call for an elevator). I am sick and tired of the way these buttons are misused. So here goes: Rule #1: The two buttons available to call an elevator have an up arrow and a down arrow. These are meant to indicate whether you want to go up or down, not whether the elevator must come up or down. For example, if youre on Floor 3 and you want to go to Floor 7, you need to press the Up arrow button. Many people see that the elevator is on Floor 5 and press the Down arrow button. When I ask them why they pressed the Down arrow button when they wanted to go up, they say I want the elevator to come down. Well, the elevator will figure out where it has to go but you please just let it know where you want to go because the elevator has no way to figure that out. Corollary to Rule #1 : Never press both Up and Down arrows. It does not cause the elevator to come t ...

To the Editor: Observing jugular venous pressure (JVP) is central to cardiovascular examination. Lewis, in 1930,1 was the first to report the use of the external jugular vein as a manometer for recording pressure in the right atrium. Unfortunately, some textbooks on clinical examination and many clinical teachers incorrectly state that the external jugular is unreliable for measuring JVP and that only the internal jugular should be used. The problem with this is that the internal jugular vein is located deep within the neck, where it is covered by the sternomastoid muscle and is therefore not usually visible.. ...

Background: Hepatitis C (HCV) was difficult to treat post-kidney transplant prior to the direct acting antiviral (DAA) era. As such patients with advanced fibrosis and compensated cirrhosis due to HCV were considered ineligible to receive kidney transplant alone (KTA). We assessed the safety of KTA at our center in the DAA era in patients with advanced liver fibrosis (Metavir 3) or compensated cirrhosis due to chronic HCV. Methods: KTA patients transplanted in the DAA era (2014-present) with HCV viremia at transplant were reviewed. Baseline data included age, gender, race, BMI, liver fibrosis as assessed by fibroscan or biopsy, kidney donor HCV status, HCV genotype and prior HCV treatment. Compensated cirrhosis was defi ned as cirrhosis on biopsy but lack of portal hypertension (pHTN) by hepatic venous pressure gradient measurement. Outcome data included survival, liver and renal function one-year post transplant. Results: 24 viremic patients underwent KTA of whom 5 patients had compensated cirrhosis
The reliability of the individual practitioner in finding the jugular venous pulse is notoriously unreliable. Given the safety of ultrasound, its relatively cheap cost and its easy access, recent studies have looked into the possibility of ultrasound guided determination of the jugular venous pulse. Two separate studies in 2010, one by Northern Ontario Medical School, and the other by the University of Iowa have suggested a much higher reliability in ultrasound-determined jugular venous pulse. However, as with any new technological method it warrants further research before its application clinically ...

N2 - Background/Aims: Cirrhotic patients chronically treated with beta-blockers who achieve a decrease of hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) ≥20% from baseline or to ≤12 mmHg have a marked reduction of first bleeding or re-bleeding. However, two HVPG measurements are needed to evaluate response. This study was aimed at investigating the predictive role of acute HVPG response to i.v. propranolol for bleeding and survival. Methods: We retrospectively studied 166 cirrhotic patients with varices with HVPG response to i.v. propranolol (0.15 mg/kg). All patients subsequently received non-selective beta-blockers to prevent first bleeding (n = 78) or re-bleeding (n = ...
To prove my point I ask you, does the quality or quantity of bowel sounds matter in a patient without bowel complaints? Is there any part of the head exam that would change in the course of an inpatient admission? The lung exam may change in a case of pneumonia but isnt the fever curve and the general appearance of the patient better and more important to note? The rales of heart failure may improve in a case of congestive heart failure, but Id say that when your patient is sleeping flat, no longer dyspneic, and no longer tripoding, the pulmonary finding of rales is irrelevant ...

Central venous pressure (CVP) is the blood pressure in the venae cavae, near the right atrium of the heart. CVP reflects the amount of blood returning to the heart and the ability of the heart to pump the blood back into the arterial system. CVP is often a good approximation of right atrial pressure (RAP),[1] although the two terms are not identical, as a pressure differential can sometimes exist between the venae cavae and the right atrium. CVP and RAP can differ when arterial tone is altered. This can be graphically depicted as changes in the slope of the venous return plotted against right atrial pressure (where central venous pressure increases, but right atrial pressure stays the same; VR = CVP − RAP).. CVP has been, and often still is, used as a surrogate for preload, and changes in CVP in response to infusions of intravenous fluid have been used to predict volume-responsiveness (i.e. whether more fluid will improve cardiac output). However, there is increasing evidence that CVP, whether ...
In addition, there is a substantial reduction in the risk for decompensation with statins.. I think clinicians are afraid to use statins in this population because of the potential for infection of the liver, said Ulrich Bang, MD, PhD, from the University Hospital of Hvidovre in Denmark.. But this study should allay those fears. Statins are mainly prescribed by general practitioners, Dr Bang told Medscape Medical News. These doctors need to be informed that they should not be afraid to use statins in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis.. The results of the study were presented here at The Liver Meeting 2016.. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that statins can reduce the risk for death in patients with cirrhosis caused by hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and other infections, and the drugs have been associated with significant decreases in hepatic venous pressure gradients in randomized studies, Dr Bang reported.. He cited a recent study in which patients with cirrhosis received bleeding ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Controversial vascular access surveillance mandate. AU - Paulson, William D.. AU - Work, Jack. PY - 2010/1/1. Y1 - 2010/1/1. N2 - The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently revised the requirements that end-stage renal disease (ESRD) dialysis facilities must meet to be certified under Medicare. The CMS ESRD Interpretive Guidance Update states that the dialysis facility must now have an ongoing program of hemodialysis vascular access surveillance. Surveillance usually refers to monthly access blood flow or static dialysis venous pressure measurements combined with preemptive correction of stenosis. However, surveillance as currently practiced does not accurately predict synthetic graft thrombosis or prolong graft life. There is limited evidence that monthly surveillance may reduce native arteriovenous fistula thrombosis without prolonging fistula life, but the effect on thrombosis awaits further confirmation. Thus, the CMS surveillance requirement is not ...
BLPR2 can be used for the direct arterial and venous pressure measurement in animal blood vessels. Supplied sterile, BLPR2 is accurate, linear and stable with temperature. May be sterilized cold with Cidex or a similar bactericide.
Central venous pressure (CVP) is at the crucial intersection of the force returning blood to the heart and the force produced by cardiac function, which drives the blood back to the systemic circulation. The normal range of CVP is small so that before using it one must ensure proper measurement, specifically the reference level. A useful approach to hypotension is to first determine if arterial pressure is low because of a decrease in vascular resistance or a decrease in cardiac output. This is done by either measuring cardiac output or making a clinical assessment blood flow. If the cardiac output is decreased, next determine whether this is because of a cardiac pump problem or a return problem. It is at this stage that the CVP is most helpful for these options can be separated by considering the actual CVP or even better, how it changed with the change in cardiac output. A high CVP is indicative of a primary pump problem, and a low CVP and return problem. Understanding the factors that determine CVP
The response of atrial pressure, venous pressure, pulse and respiratory rates to intravenous hexamethonium in 38 selected patients was studied. The drug seemed more effective where vascular tone was greater. Increased venous tone was indicated in congestive heart failure. The possible useful role of intravenous hexamethonium as an adjunct in the treatment of congestive heart failure was concluded from the objective and subjective observations made.. ...

Prospective experimental study was performed using piglets between 2 and 3 months of age and 9-11 kg. CRRT with a PrismaflexR monitor and HF20 filter (surface of 0.2 m2 ) was started after monitoring and anesthetic induction with an initial blood flow at 20 mL/min with 10 mL/min increases every minute until the goal flow of 5 mL/kg/min was achieved. Heart rate, blood pressure, central venous pressure, cardiac index, and renal blood flow were registered at baseline, 5, 15, 30, 60, 120, 180, 240, and 360 min ...
AbstractDeveloping an implantable, telemetric pressure measuring system for venous applications makes a high degree of miniaturization necessary. Thus the influence on the measurement environment is minimized and the risk of thrombosis at small flow blood velocities is decreased. But these systems are limited in terms of accuracy and resolution. The asked system requirements could only be reached by optimising the assembly and encapsulation techniques. To achieve the high degree of miniaturization numerical simulations were performed on the shape and size of the implant and led to the development of a specific metal housing consisting of two main components. A small measuring chamber will be placed into the portal vein and is rigidly fixed to a flat circular part that contains the pressure sensor chip and a transponder board and will be located outside on top of the vein. The main focus of the assembly process was based on a stress-free design and mounting of the components.

I feel so blessed. Last night I reviewed an EVP recording from last year made on Valentines Day. At the time, I couldnt really hear anything. I didnt know how to listen for EVP, nor did I have the right equipment (headphones), knowledge, or skill. One year later, and I am able to spot EVP easily. I have learned so much about the spirit world from it. I realized that a lot of things that people say about the spirit world are really just their assumptions. No one can say they know until they have objectively observed the spirit world in action.. I am truly grateful to be able to share my experiences with you. I never thought I would believe in the things that I do now. Even though I grew up with exposure to church, I couldnt reconcile the differences countered by the evidence of the afterlife. Now that I have had first hand experiences and studied the Bible, I know that there is no contradiction. God promised eternal life to all. How you spend eternity is up to you and God.

An intravenous administration set assembly (10) is disclosed which is capable of introducing fluid from a plurality of sources of intravenous fluids into a patient and which allows the various sources of fluid to be easily attached and detected from the assembly without the necessity for intravening safety steps, such as purging the system, and yet without any possibility of air or bacteria being introduced through the system into the patient. An air-eliminating filter (32) is attached to a manifold formed of fittings (26) which are connected through inlet adapters (28) to the sources of intravenous fluid. The air-eliminating filter (32) ensures that air or bacteria introduced into the assembly (10) through attaching or detaching sources to the assembly does not pass to the patient and also ensures that a head pressure is maintained relative to the venous pressure of the patient to prevent a back flow of blood from the patient into the assembly. Check valves are provided in each of the inlet adapters
