Diagnosis and treatment of dysnatremia is challenging and further complicated by the pitfalls of different sodium measurement methods. Routinely used sodium measurements are the indirect (plasma/serum) and direct (whole blood) ion selective electrode (ISE) method, showing discrepant results especially in the setting of acute illness. Few clinicians are aware of differences between the methods in clinically stable patients or healthy volunteers.

The primary aim was to assess and compare the total costs (direct health care costs and indirect costs due to loss of production) after early mobilization versus plaster immobilization in patients wit...
Indirect effects, both density- and trait-mediated, have been known to act in tandem with direct effects in the interactions of numerous species. They have been shown to affect populations embedded in...
Sodium intake is correlated with the development of hypertension. Guyton's principals suggest that the 24-hour urinary sodium excretion reflects sodium ingestion over the same period. 24-hour urine co...
This study investigates the impact of the time interval (the time passed between 2 consecutive measurements) selection on autoregressive mediation modeling (AMM). For a widely used autoregressive medi...
Gold-199 is a promising theranostic radionuclide for targeted radioimmunotherapy as well as for scintigraphy and dosimetry. Au can be produced in two methods in the direct and indirect routes of the r...
Aim: The aim of this study to Assess the healing process of the immediate implant loading with two different provisional techniques (direct and indirect). Materials and methods: 20...
Although predicted REE calculated using the Penn state 1988 method agreed (ICC 0.61, p=0.00014) with the measured REE, all three predictive equations had a fixed bias and appeared to be in...
This study aims at validating the accuracy of the new indirect calorimeter (Quark RMR 2.0, COSMED, Italy), developed for the ICALIC multicenter study. The validation of accuracy will only ...
Septic shock is a frequent syndrome with a 45% mortality rate despite intensive care unit (ICU) care, where free radicals may play a key role, and a >40% decrease in plasma selenium concen...
While immunisation of school-age children against influenza is not recommended in Hong Kong, past experience in Japan and elsewhere suggests that immunisation of children may protect the w...
Test for tissue antigen using either a direct method, by conjugation of antibody with fluorescent dye (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, DIRECT) or an indirect method, by formation of antigen-antibody complex which is then labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, INDIRECT). The tissue is then examined by fluorescence microscopy.
Method to determine the occurrence of OVULATION by direct or indirect means. Indirect methods examine the effects of PROGESTERONE on cervical mucus (CERVIX MUCUS), or basal body temperature. Direct ovulation detection, generally used in fertility treatment, involves analyses of circulating hormones in blood and ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Cell membrane glycoproteins selective for sodium ions. Fast sodium current is associated with the action potential in neural membranes.
A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.
Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
