  • Clinically, congestive heart failure involves circulatory congestion caused by heart disorders that are primarily characterized by abnormalities of left ventricular function and neurohormonal regulation. (google.com.au)
  • Congestive heart failure occurs when these abnormalities cause the heart to fail to pump blood at a rate required by the metabolizing tissues. (google.com.au)
  • Clinical manifestations of congestive heart failure include respiratory distress, such as shortness of breath and fatigue, and reduced exercise capacity or tolerance. (google.com.au)
  • distress
  • Other adverse effects are usually limited to gastrointestinal tract (GI) distress (vomiting, anorexia, soft stools, diarrhoea) and decreased activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The American Thoracic Society defines it as "a subjective experience of breathing discomfort that consists of qualitatively distinct sensations that vary in intensity", and recommends evaluating dyspnea by assessing the intensity of the distinct sensations, the degree of distress involved, and its burden or impact on activities of daily living. (wikipedia.org)
  • Abnormal
  • Long-term amphetamine exposure at sufficiently high doses in some animal species is known to produce abnormal dopamine system development or nerve damage, but, in humans with ADHD, pharmaceutical amphetamines appear to improve brain development and nerve growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorder
  • Other body systems may be affected as well, particularly in early-onset forms of the disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • The electroencephalogram (EEG) will generally use six "exploring" electrodes and two "reference" electrodes, unless a seizure disorder is suspected, in which case more electrodes will be applied to document the appearance of seizure activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Weak

  • The symptoms for males are: Profound sensorineural hearing loss i.e, a complete or almost complete loss of hearing caused by abnormalities in the inner ear. (wikipedia.org)
  • Furthermore, as MRI is between six and 10 times more sensitive than clinical signs or symptoms in the assessment of disease activity, 14-18 a stronger relation between URTI and active, ongoing acute changes on MRI might be expected. (bmj.com)
  • bacterial
  • Its mechanism of action is not thoroughly understood, but it is believed to be similar to the other fluoroquinolones by impairing the bacterial DNA gyrase which results in rapid bactericidal activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • skeletal
  • Lower levels of the protein results in loss of function of neuronal cells in the anterior horn of the spinal cord and subsequent system-wide atrophy of skeletal muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • 9 While some diseases, such as hematologic neoplasms, cause neutropenia, it occurs most often as a result of the myelosuppression caused by antineoplastic chemotherapy, especially when such therapy is administered at doses designed to achieve maximum antitumor activity. (nih.gov)
  • disorders
  • Arts Syndrome is part of a spectrum of PRPS-1 related disorders with reduced activity of the enzyme that includes Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and X-linked non-syndromic sensorineural deafness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease-5, Arts syndrome and X-linked nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness present three clinically distinct but genetically allelic disorders, caused by reduced phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthetase 1 (PRS1) activity due to PRPS1 mutations. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Lysyl oxidase has also proven crucial to the development of the respiratory system and the skin, as collagen and elastin represent 50-60% of the composition of the lung, and 75% of the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Results
  • We report here the results of an investigation into the relation between symptomatic and serologically confirmed URTI on the one hand, and disease activity, as estimated both from the symptomatic attack rate and the number and volume of enhancing lesions on MRI, on the other. (bmj.com)
  • Clinical
  • In addition, although MRI is six to 10 times more sensitive than clinical exacerbations in indexing disease activity, any possible association between URTI and MRI activity has yet to be investigated. (bmj.com)
  • OBJECTIVES To examine the relation between URTI and disease activity, in multiple sclerosis patients participating in a placebo controlled trial of interferon β-1a, as indexed both by clinical exacerbation rate and by the number and volume of gadolinium - diethylenetriaminepenta acetic acid (Gd-DTPA) enhancing lesions on MRI.

  • assessment
  • Cytokines study In a sub-group of patients who will have arterial line at enrollment blood sample ( 0.6 CC) will be drawn before and immediately following activity for assessment of proinflammatory (IL-6) and anti-inflammatory ( IL1-ra) cytokines. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • function
  • Respiratory control is the automatic function of breathing in response to varied activities of daily living (ex. (rarediseases.org)
  • Reviews of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies suggest that long-term treatment with amphetamine decreases abnormalities in brain structure and function found in subjects with ADHD, and improves function in several parts of the brain, such as the right caudate nucleus of the basal ganglia. (wikipedia.org)
  • periods

  • protein
  • HM at 2.5 mg/100 g, but not at 5 mg/100 g, potentiated the LPS-induced increase in NOS activity, iNOS mRNA, and protein. (cdc.gov)
  • However, HM decreased eNOS activity at 8 h and eNOS protein at 24 h. (cdc.gov)
  • The rise of antibodies with specificity for Site II peptide, and the palivizumab-competitive binding activity, denoting antibodies binding at, or in proximity to, antigenic Site II on the F protein, closely paralleled the anti-F response. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • brain
  • These electrodes will provide a readout of the brain activity that can be "scored" into different stages of sleep (N1, N2, N3 which combined are referred to as NREM sleep, and Stage R which is rapid eye movement sleep or REM, and Wakefulness). (wikipedia.org)
  • Appearance
  • The increase in NOS activity correlated with the appearance histologically of nitrotyrosine immunofluorescence in polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) and macrophages. (cdc.gov)
  • increase
  • On a pathophysiological basis the causes can be divided into: (1) an increased awareness of normal breathing such as during an anxiety attack, (2) an increase in the work of breathing and (3) an abnormality in the ventilatory system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Psychostimulants like methylphenidate and amphetamine are effective in treating ADHD because they increase neurotransmitter activity in these systems. (wikipedia.org)
