The challenges of sodium measurements - indirect versus direct ion selective method.

Summary of "The challenges of sodium measurements - indirect versus direct ion selective method."

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.

Early mobilization versus plaster immobilization of simple elbow dislocations: a cost analysis of the FuncSiE multicenter randomized clinical trial.

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 in a planktonic disease system.

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...

24-hour vs Spot Urinary Sodium and Potassium Measurements in Adult Hypertensive patients; A Cohort Validation Study.

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...

Investigating the impact of the time interval selection on autoregressive mediation modeling: Result interpretations, effect reporting, and temporal designs.

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...

Production assessment of non-carrier-added Au by (n,γ) reaction.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
