Objective: The primary aim of this 30 patient feasibility trial is to determine if, for critically ill patients treated with SLED for AKI, randomization to receive albumin (25%) boluses ve...
This is a prospective, randomized, controlled study to determine if albumin and propofol or albumin only will provide superior qualitative contrast enhancement during TEE bubble studies co...
Severe infection in the intensive care unit is common accounting for about 10% of admissions and has a death rate of approximately 40-50%. It is almost always associated with significant r...
Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a common and severe complication of cirrhosis. The most serious complication of SBP is the hepatorenal syndrome (HRS), which occurs in up to 30 p...
Colonoscopy and sedation are frequently accompanied by hypotension, which reduces the amount of sedation able to be employed. Blood pressure is restored by the infusion of intravenous norm...
The optimal fluid therapy in children with DKA is a matter of debate, especially if we take into account its association with cerebral edema, the most important complication. Hypertonic Saline Solutio...
The aims of this study were to describe the use of Ringer's lactate (LR) or normal saline (NS) for resuscitation among children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and compare the effect of fluid type on...
Balanced crystalloid solutions induce less hyperchloremia than normal saline, but their role as primary fluid replacement for children undergoing surgery is unestablished. We hypothesized that balance...
To quantitate the effect of intravenous hypertonic saline on elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) among three groups of glaucoma patients or suspects.
We present a case of severe hypokalemia, metabolic acidosis, and arrhythmia following absorption of 2500 mls of normal saline during a hysteroscopic myomectomy. The patient was a 36-year-old woman wit...
A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).
Normal human serum albumin mildly iodinated with radioactive iodine (131-I) which has a half-life of 8 days, and emits beta and gamma rays. It is used as a diagnostic aid in blood volume determination. (from Merck Index, 11th ed)
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.
A family of gram-negative, moderately halophilic bacteria in the order Oceanospirillales. Members of the family have been isolated from temperate and Antarctic saline lakes, solar salt facilities, saline soils, and marine environments.
