• signs of hemolysis
  • The emergency physician has to think about this complication in case of hemoglobinuria and/or signs of hemolysis associated with a septic syndrome. (hindawi.com)
  • Patients at high risk of IVIG-associated hemolysis (defined as receipt of a 28-day cumulative dose of ≥ 2 g/kg, adjusted for ideal body weight, and non-O blood group) will be prospectively monitored using a standardized protocol for signs of hemolysis, and will be undergo additional testing for variables that have been hypothesized to increase the risk of hemolysis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Measuring the level of haptoglobin in a patient's blood is ordered whenever a patient exhibits symptoms of anemia, such as pallor, fatigue, or shortness of breath, along with physical signs of hemolysis, such as jaundice or dark-colored urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • vivo
  • When examining the reason, in only 3.2 % of haemolysed samples was in vivo haemolysis the cause. (ifcc.org)
  • In-vivo haemolysis is caused by antibodies, biochemically through medications, by toxic substances, through hereditary factors (e.g. haemoglobinopathies), through enzyme defects (acholuric jaundice) or by infections (e.g. malaria). (ifcc.org)
  • coagulation
  • Its measurement by means of the haemolysis index, that also has become available on coagulation analyzers (15), was proven to be reliable and practical (16), so that this practice should be encouraged to provide an objective and virtually incontestable measure of sample quality. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • In agreement with these results, a subsequent clinical trial found that 21G, 23G, and 25G butterflies connected directly to vacuum tubes caused the same amount of hemolysis and gave the same coagulation panel test results. (wikipedia.org)
  • serum
  • The pathophysiology of IVIG-associated hemolysis will be characterized by tracking changes in serum complement levels, performing extended cytokine profiling, and conducting mononuclear phagocyte activity assays using patient monocytes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Even if haemolysis is not visually detectable, a discharge of intracellular constituents into the plasma/serum can have occurred. (ifcc.org)
  • Haemolysis is visible as a red colouration of the plasma or serum after centrifugation of the sample. (ifcc.org)
  • malaria
  • Vienna, 31 October 2016) Worldwide, millions of people suffer from hemolysis, the breakdown of red blood cells, such as those afflicted with sickle-cell disease, malaria or sepsis. (meduniwien.ac.at)
  • The loss of cytoskeletal resilience results in life-threatening conditions for millions of people worldwide, which suffer from hemolysis due to systemic inflammation (sepsis) or disorders such as sickle-cell disease, or malaria. (meduniwien.ac.at)
  • Because the feeding process of the Plasmodium parasites damages red blood cells, malaria is sometimes called "parasitic hemolysis" in medical literature. (wikipedia.org)
  • laboratory
  • Laboratory testing for hemolysis will be performed at baseline, immediately following the completed high-dose cycle (usually administered over 1-2 days), and then again at 5-10 days post-infusion. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Staphylococcus
  • The CAMP test is a test to identify Group B β-streptococci based on their formation of a substance (CAMP factor) that enlarges the area of hemolysis formed by β-hemolysin from Staphylococcus aureus. (wikipedia.org)
  • needles
  • Aspiration using thin needles should cause less haemolysis than use of large ones because the flow-rate, flow speed and turbulence is less, and as a result haemolysis is reported to be lower 5 . (ifcc.org)
  • infections
  • SCD is a hemoglobinopathy clinically characterized by chronic haemolysis , susceptibility to frequent infections, growth retardation, spleenic sequestration and intermittent episodes of painful vasoocclusive crisis affecting different organs. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • In the latest edition of Nature Immunology, Sylvia Knapp's Group at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Medical University of Vienna, uncovers the molecular mechanisms that explain how hemolysis escalates the risk for infections. (meduniwien.ac.at)
  • For decades, iron has been considered the prime suspect responsible for the high rate of bacterial infections in patients with hemolysis (bursting of red blood cells). (meduniwien.ac.at)
  • Taking that into consideration, the traditional hypothesis predicted that since hemolysis leads to the release of iron-containing heme, the threat of serious bacterial infections in these patients was attributed to the excess availability of circulating iron (heme). (meduniwien.ac.at)
  • clinical
  • In addition to causing hemolysis and exertional myopathy, heart disease may be a prominent clinical component of PFK deficiency in this breed and has not been previously recognized in PFK-deficient English Springer Spaniels. (nih.gov)
  • immune
  • Microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia (MAHA) is a non-immune haemolysis with prominent red cell fragmentation observed on peripheral blood film. (edu.au)
  • lactic
  • With still lower concentrations of NaCl, hemolysis was intensified to such an extent that with 0.3 per cent NaCl hemolysis was complete notwithstanding the addition of 1:1,000 lactic acid and that with 0.2 per cent NaCl it was complete with 1:500 lactic acid, lactic acid being used in the form of sodium lactate solution. (aspetjournals.org)
  • risk
  • The authors discuss the potential risk and prevention of postoperative hemolysis in corrective surgery of the truncus arteriosus with truncal valve insufficiency. (biomedsearch.com)
  • As a result there is an increased risk of haemolysis during storage and/or transportation. (ifcc.org)
