Payperview: Acid-base And Electrolyte Abnormalities During Renal Support For Acute Kidney Injury: Recognition And Management - Karger Publishers

I have read the Karger Terms and Conditions and agree. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with electrolyte and acid-base disturbances such as hyperkalemia, metabolic acidosis, hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia. The initiation of dialysis in AKI can efficiently treat these complications. The choice of dialysis modality can be made based on their operational characteristics to tailor the therapy according to the clinical scenario. Each dialysis modality can also trigger significant electrolyte and acid-base disorders, such as hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia and metabolic alkalosis, which may direct changes in fluid delivery and composition. Continuous techniques may be particularly useful in these situations as they allow more time for correction and to maintain balance. This review provides an overview of the electrolyte and acid-base disturbances occurring in AKI and after the initiation of dialysis and discusses therapeutic options in this setting.

    Here is the formula for anion gap:
    Agap = Na + K - Cl -CO2
    I would think that the doctor would be monitoring the glucose level (not the agap) to determine when to stop the insulin drip. Anyone else have an idea?

Dehydration occurs when your body has lost more fluid than you have taken in. Remaining hydrated is critical to your overall health. Every cell in your body needs water, along with oxygen, to function properly. Dehydration Headache | Dehydration Cause and Symptoms | Home remedies for dehydration 2015 Anyone can become dehydrated, but those at a higher risk include infants, young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, endurance athletes and people living at high altitudes. Dehydration Headache | Dehydration Cause and Symptoms | Home remedies for dehydration 2015 Some common causes of dehydration are vigorous exercise in hot weather, diarrhea, vomiting, excessive sweating and increased urination. Dehydration Headache | Dehydration Cause and Symptoms | Home remedies for dehydration 2015 The symptoms differ depending on whether the condition is mild or severe. Some symptoms of mild to moderate dehydration are dry mouth, fatigue, thirst, less urination, dry skin, headaches, constipation, muscle cramps and dizziness or lightheadedness. Dehydration Headache | Dehydration Cause and Symptoms | Home remedies for dehydration 2015 Symptoms of severe or chronic dehydration are extreme thirst, confusion, little or no urination, sunken eyes, very dry mouth, dry skin that lacks elasticity, low blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing and even delirium or unconsciousness.

The Treatment Of Dehydration, Acidosis And Alkalosis

THE TREATMENT OF DEHYDRATION, ACIDOSIS AND ALKALOSIS Under various circumstances a syndrome called dehydration develops. The patient shows diminished turgor of the skin, sunken eyes, poor circulation, oliguria and concentration of the blood with respect to red cells and serum proteins. While an inadequate intake of water will produce some of these symptoms, the fully developed picture occurs almost exclusively when, as a result of vomiting, diarrhea, sweating or abnormal diuresis, the body has lost extracellular electrolyte (salts) as well as water. Furthermore, this fully developed picture of dehydration can be produced when extracellular electrolyte is no longer available to the body as a whole because it has been fixed in the inflammatory exudate of a burn. In dehydration the evidences of loss of fluid volume are confined chiefly to extracellular fluids. The central feature is the deficiency of extracellular electrolyte, since dehydration can develop either with or without loss of water from the body as a Continue reading >>

    So, I'm coffee dependent. It's not something I'm proud of but its something that for the last 10 years of my life has been a morning essential. I hate carrying this baggage around. The last time I tried to quit the am dose of bean juice I literally thought I was going to die. I had actual withdrawal symptoms. Shakes, sweats, cold flashes, severe nausea, massive headache. That was a few years ago. I'm terrified to try and give it up again but I hate being chained down to it, every morning I feel like coffee's bitch when I roll up to the coffee shop before work at 7am and order my triple shot 12 oz breve with a dash of SF hazelnut. Shell out my $3.50 and think, I could be smoking a few packs of smokes a week for these prices (I quit smoking 12 years ago when the price of cigarettes went up to $5 a pack in my state).
    TL;DR: anybody quit the bean juice and live to tell the tale? Tell me how you did it. Did you sub in tea or something else? I've never been a breakfast eater so I've always just had coffee till around noon when I eat.

  2. Enyoface

    Quitting coffee!? That's just crazy talk. I allow myself three beverages. Water, coffee, and tea. I already cut out soda. I'll never give up my coffee! I'd give up water before coffee. In fact, I've had two cups of coffee today and almost no water. (Whoops)
    Good luck though, those withdrawal migraines are the worst!

  3. robocute

    I should preface this by saying that I have had doctors say they suspect I have a particular sensitivity to caffeine, so take what I say next as a possible worst case scenario - in all likelihood it won't be like this for you.
    I quit coffee last December well before starting keto and thought it was going well. Until day 3 when I thought my head was going to explode - I had an all-day headache. Days 4 - 6 were pretty similar - paracetemol, ibuprofen + codeine - nothing helped. I drank heaps of herbal tea during that time, probably a cup an hour all day whilst at work.
    After the headaches subsided, I went through a period of very poor mental clarity, it felt like a circuit that wasn't wired properly so things wouldn't fire they way they should. It wasn't so bad that I couldn't function but more like a fuzziness. That gradually improved over about a month.
    Following that though, my brain function started to improve noticeably and my mental clarity has exceeded what it was on caffeine. I realised just how much I relied on caffeine and what a disservice it was doing me. I think coffee should help you find an extra level when you need a boost, not perpetually get you to 'just functioning' - only my opinion of course!
    I still miss the ritual, especially on cold days and I really love coffee - I live in a coffee crazy city where there is amazing coffee everywhere. But it doesn't have a hold on me anymore.
    It was definitely a struggle, which is why I avoid caffeine as much as possible (I eat chocolate occasionally when it fits my macros, I'm only human!) and I don't drink decaf coffee either, it just isn't the same. Instead, I enjoy a variety of herbal teas during the day - celestial seasonings and tetley both have a great range.
    I absolutely do not regret giving it up. I feel like I have gotten something back within myself - similar to the way I feel about keto!
    Aside from the mental clarity, there are other benefits - obviously dependent on the individual - better sleep, skin improvement from hydration, being calmer, lower blood pressure to name a few.
    Hope this answered your questions without scaring you too much. I may be a special case as I said earlier - an example of this was when my boss (a neurologist) sent me home from work after I had a coffee for breakfast, came in bouncing like a puppy and had managed to raise my blood pressure to 190/130. So it may not be like this for you.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best and drink lots of herbal tea :) Good luck!
    TLDR; Quit coffee, had 4 day headache, was fuzzy, got better, now come into work more alert than most!

American Thoracic Society - Interpretation Of Arterial Blood Gases (abgs)

Interpretation of Arterial Blood Gases (ABGs) Chief, Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine Bridgeport Hospital-Yale New Haven Health Assistant Clinical Professor, Yale University School of Medicine (Section of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine) Interpreting an arterial blood gas (ABG) is a crucial skill for physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and other health care personnel. ABG interpretation is especially important in critically ill patients. The following six-step process helps ensure a complete interpretation of every ABG. In addition, you will find tables that list commonly encountered acid-base disorders. Many methods exist to guide the interpretation of the ABG. This discussion does not include some methods, such as analysis of base excess or Stewarts strong ion difference. A summary of these techniques can be found in some of the suggested articles. It is unclear whether these alternate methods offer clinically important advantages over the presented approach, which is based on the anion gap. Step 1: Assess the internal consistency of the values using the Henderseon-Hasselbach equation: If the pH and the [H+] are inconsistent, the ABG is probably no Continue reading >>

    I have only started keto a few weeks ago. Since that first week, I've averaged about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds per week. I do "cheat" from time to time, but not with high carb foods. Only by going over my daily calorie limit.
    What is your average weekly weight loss?
    Does it seem like you lose weight easier or more consistently than other diet plans you've tried?

  2. anbeav

    Studies show no metabolic weight loss advantage to a keto diet. Most lose 1 to 2 lbs a week with many pauses in between. People with more weight to lose often lose faster and some lose slower. Many have more consistent weight loss then other diet plans because of insulin resistance but still for most it's slow and steady and not much faster than other diet plans but rather that they lose on keto vs. other diet plans where they don't really lose weight.

  3. ScaredOfTheL

    well when i actually lose weight its something like 0,5-1kg per week, but 50% of the time i dont lose anything. it averages out at ~0,5kg per week.
