evaluate efficacy and safety of IV administration of potassium chloride (KCl) plus 0.9%NaCl compare with KCl plus half-strength normal saline solution (0.45%NaCl) in correcting hypokalemia
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cardioprotective effects of a short term infusion of glucose-insulin-potassium (GIK) during heart surgery.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the glucose insulin potassium (GIK) infusion associated with intensive insulin therapy compared to GIK alone in patients presenting to th...
Hyperosmotic solutions of 1.5% and 3% NaCl are equally effective for brain relaxation and microcirculation during brain surgery. The effect of 1.5% NaCl on postoperative natremia and natri...
Data from experimental animals and human epidemiological studies have suggested that hypohydration and/or low water intake is linked to poor glucose regulation and diabetes. The aim of thi...
ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channels (Kir), are a potassium channel family involved in many physiological processes. K dysfunctions are observed in several diseases such as hypoglycaemia,...
Potassium channels dysfunction and altered genes encoding for molecules involved in potassium homeostasis have been associated with human epilepsy. These observations are in agreement with a control r...
Freshwater mussels (order Unionoida) are one of the most imperiled groups of animals in the world. However, many ambient water quality criteria and other environmental guideline values do not include ...
Treatment of thoracic aortic rupture poses a substantial challenge for the aortic surgeon. The advent of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) revolutionized the treatment of this heterogeneous ...
A family of delayed rectifier voltage-gated potassium channels that share homology with their founding member, KCNQ1 PROTEIN. KCNQ potassium channels have been implicated in a variety of diseases including LONG QT SYNDROME; DEAFNESS; and EPILEPSY.
An inherited renal disorder characterized by defective NaCl reabsorption in the convoluted DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE leading to HYPOKALEMIA. In contrast with BARTTER SYNDROME, Gitelman syndrome includes hypomagnesemia and normocalcemic hypocalciuria, and is caused by mutations in the thiazide-sensitive SODIUM-POTASSIUM-CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS.
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
