  • TRALI
  • It is a clinical diagnosis and may be diagnosed when acute lung injury (ALI) occurs during or within six hours of transfusion in a patient without pre-existing ALI, in the absence of temporally related alternative risk factors for ALI (e.g., sepsis, shock, cardiac failure, etc.).[ 1 ] This communication discusses a case of TRALI in a middle-aged woman. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Leukocyte filters may prevent TRALI for those patients whose lung injury is due to leukoagglutination of the donor white blood cells, but because most TRALI is due to donor antibodies to leukocytes, filters are not helpful in TRALI prevention. (wikipedia.org)

  • The researchers took into account factors such as the donor s age, race, cause of death, and the recipient s age, race and reason for lung transplant, as well as the size matching between the donor and recipient. (innovations-report.com)
  • Once the lung is taken out of the donor, it is put on ice, and during this time, no blood flows through the organ. (innovations-report.com)
  • fluid

  • When mice that had been injected with a compound that causes ALI were injected with the purified and cultured Flk and CD34 stem cells, the progenitor cells were able to repair the lung injury, prevent fluid build-up, and led to improved survival. (medindia.net)
  • Acute lung injury (ALI) is often caused by a respiratory infection and results in low oxygen levels in the blood, and fluid in the lungs. (thaindian.com)
  • Mice
  • Adult stem cells from bone marrow can help treat acute lung injury, a new mice study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine has shown. (medindia.net)
  • capillaries
  • PMN migration into the lung proceeds by several steps upon an inflammatory stimulus: first, accumulation of PMNs in the capillaries, then transendothelial migration into the lung interstitium and finally, transepithelial migration into the alveolar space. (hindawi.com)

  • The servo display is a general clinical indicator of changes in the compliance or resistance of the patient's lungs, as well as loss of lung volume due to tension pneumothorax. (wikipedia.org)
  • organ
  • It is used to support a single failing organ system (the lungs) and cannot reverse any underlying disease process (such as terminal cancer). (wikipedia.org)
  • membranes
  • Leukoagglutination and pooling of granulocytes in the recipient's lungs may occur, with release of the contents of leukocyte granules, and resulting injury to cellular membranes, endothelial surfaces, and potentially to lung parenchyma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Insight
  • By learning how this specific gene can alter the course of acute lung injury, we can gain insight into the biology of the disease, which could lead to better therapies. (thaindian.com)
  • blood
  • Extravascular lung water measurement offers information not otherwise available by other methods such as chest radiography, arterial blood gas, and chest auscultation at the bedside. (hindawi.com)
  • When the lung is transplanted into the recipient and all the blood vessels are reattached, injury to the lung may become apparent. (innovations-report.com)
  • Heart-Lung Machine, a method in which blood is diverted to an artificial heart-lung machine and directed back into the patient. (wikipedia.org)

  • pleural
  • These technical difficulties lead to incorrect assessment of pleural effusion, lung consolidation and alveolar-interstitial syndrome. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Lung CT is now considered as the gold standard not only for the diagnosis of pneumothorax, pleural effusion, lung consolidation, atelectasis and alveolar-interstitial syndrome but also for guiding therapeutic procedures in critically ill patients, such as trans-thoracic drainage of localized pneumo-thorax, empyema or lung abscess. (biomedcentral.com)
  • ultrasound
  • Recently, chest ultrasound has become an attractive new tool for assessing lung status in ventilated critically ill patients, as suggested by the increasing number of articles written about it by physicians practicing in chest, intensive care or emergency medicine. (biomedcentral.com)
  • As a matter of fact, chest ultrasound can be used easily at the bedside to assess initial lung morphology in severely hypoxemic patients [ 2 ] and can be easily repeated, allowing the effects of therapy to be monitored. (biomedcentral.com)
  • CT scan has been shown to be more accurate than ultrasound in detecting acute appendicitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxygen
  • In medicine, it refers to excess oxygen in the lungs or other body tissues, which can be caused by breathing air or oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Lung image formation during CT relies on a physical principle similar to that used for image formation during chest radiography: the X-rays hitting the film or the CT detector depend on tissue absorption, which is linearly correlated to physical tissue density. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In the acute phase reaction, a further elevation is required to "limit" the damage caused by activated neutrophil granulocytes and their enzyme elastase, which breaks down the connective tissue fiber elastin. (wikipedia.org)

  • Although Underwater Hockey is a non-contact sport, there is a significant risk of injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most injuries are typical sports injuries, such as sprains, torn muscles and light scratches, but there is also risk of life-threatening injury due to the underwater environment and being struck on the head with the 1.3-1.5 kg puck resulting in concussions, deep cuts to the head or dental trauma.
