Standardized electrolyte supplementation and fluid management improves survival during amphotericin therapy for cryptococcal meningitis in resource-limited settings.

Amphotericin B is the preferred treatment for cryptococcal meningitis, but it has cumulative severe side effects, including nephrotoxicity, hypokalemia, and hypomagnesemia. Amphotericin-induced severe...

Shock in the First 24h of Intensive Care Unit Stay: Observational Study of Protocol-Based Fluid Management.

Precision in fluid management for shock could lead to better clinical outcomes. We evaluated the association of protocol-based fluid management (PBFM) with intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital morta...

How to avoid fluid overload.

This review highlights the recent evidence describing the outcomes associated with fluid overload in critically ill patients and provides an overview of fluid management strategies aimed at preventing...

Perioperative Acid-Base and Electrolyte Disturbances.

Obtaining and interpreting blood gas and electrolyte levels is essential in the management of perioperative veterinary patients. Metabolic and electrolyte alterations are common in critically ill surg...

A Year-Long Quality Improvement Project on Fluid Management Using Blood Volume Monitoring During Hemodialysis.

Inadequate removal of extracellular volume markedly increases blood pressure and contributes to high morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. Advances in fluid management are needed to improv...

Perioperative Fluid Management in Patients Receiving Cadaveric Renal Transplants

Primary Aims In this study we want to show that the choice of a balanced type fluid solution for the perioperative fluid management of patients receiving cadaveric renal transplantation re...

Effect of Intraoperative Fluid Management on Morbidity

The purpose of this study is to determine whether intraoperative fluid and sodium restriction decreases postoperative morbidity

Pleth Variability Index and Fluid Management During Surgery

Pleth Variability Index (PVI) seems to be an ideal parameter to guide fluid management: dynamic parameter and non-invasive. PVI could guide fluid management during surgery and optimization...

Lithium Dilution Method in Guiding Fluid Therapy in Critically Ill Patients

Hypothesis: Fluid management guided by LiDCO doesn´t increase cumulative fluid balance and shorten organ dysfunction compared to fluid management based on CVP and clinical judgment.

A Prospective Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of Standard Versus Goal-Directed Perioperative Fluid Management (GDT) for Patients Undergoing Radical Cystectomy

The purpose of this study is to help us learn what is the best amount of fluid to give to patients during bladder surgery in order to avoid delayed bowel function after surgery, which coul...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An element that is in the alkali group of metals. It has an atomic symbol K, atomic number 19, and atomic weight 39.10. It is the chief cation in the intracellular fluid of muscle and other cells. Potassium ion is a strong electrolyte and it plays a significant role in the regulation of fluid volume and maintenance of the water-electrolyte balance.

Translocation of body fluids from one compartment to another, such as from the vascular to the interstitial compartments. Fluid shifts are associated with profound changes in vascular permeability and WATER-ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE. The shift can also be from the lower body to the upper body as in conditions of weightlessness.

The balance of fluid in the BODY FLUID COMPARTMENTS; total BODY WATER; BLOOD VOLUME; EXTRACELLULAR SPACE; INTRACELLULAR SPACE, etc., maintained by processes in the body that regulate the intake and excretion of WATER and ELECTROLYTES, particularly SODIUM and POTASSIUM.

Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.

The administration of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient by means other than normal eating. It does not include FLUID THERAPY which normalizes body fluids to restore WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.
