What is INFUSION PUMP? What does INFUSION PUMP mean? INFUSION PUMP meaning - INFUSION PUMP definition - INFUSION PUMP explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. An infusion pump infuses fluids, medication or nutrients into a patient's circulatory system. It is generally used intravenously, although subcutaneous, arterial and epidural infusions are occasionally used. Infusion pumps can administer fluids in ways that would be impractically expensive or unreliable if performed manually by nursing staff. For example, they can administer as little as 0.1 mL per hour injections (too small for a drip), injections every minute, injections with repeated boluses requested by the patient, up to maximum number per hour (e.g. in patient-controlled analgesia), or fluids whose volumes vary by the time of day. Because they can also produce quite high but controlled pressures, they can inject controlled amounts of fluids subcutaneously (beneath the skin), or epidurally (just within the surface of the central nervous system a very popular local spinal anesthesia for childbirth).

Adverse Effects Of Rapid Isotonic Saline Infusion

Adverse effects of rapid isotonic saline infusion We are experimenting with display styles that make it easier to read articles in PMC. The ePub format uses eBook readers, which have several "ease of reading" features already built in. The ePub format is best viewed in the iBooks reader. You may notice problems with the display of certain parts of an article in other eReaders. Generating an ePub file may take a long time, please be patient. Adverse effects of rapid isotonic saline infusion Neville et al reported on a randomised controlled trial of hypotonic versus isotonic saline for rehydration of children with gastroenteritis. They found that isotonic saline was superior with regards to correction of hyponatraemia. 1 The majority of patients in the study received a rapid replacement protocol which entailed the infusion of 40 ml/kg of isotonic saline over 4 hours in the isotonic saline arm of the study. The authors did not report on important known adverse effects associated with rapid infusion of isotonic saline which have been reported in previous randomised controlled trials of volume support with isotonic saline versus other fluids.

    Hi, I never know if I am in ketosis or not since I don’t have ketosis strips. I am losing weight very slow with crazy ups and downs, mostly because of my water retention.
    I am wondering is there are any physical signs of being in ketosis? Is it possible to feel it?
    Also, do you think the fact that I retain water indicates that I am not in the ketosis? (I do drink my 1.5 L of water per day).

  2. kristie88

    Im so glad you asked this question because I have been wondering myself. eveyone here is helpful so im sure you will get your answer.

  3. FatCat

    Yes there are ways to tell if you are in ketosis. You may, or may not have any or all of the signs, but here are some signs:
    metallic or sweet taste in the mouth
    bad breath that can be hard to get rid of
    stronger smelling urine
    stronger body odor
    best of all.....lack of appetite

Renal Fellow Network: "dilutional Acidosis"

Though this is to some degree controversial, volume expansion with normal saline has been associated with the development of a hyperchloremic, non-anion gap metabolic acidosis. What are the mechanisms associated with saline expansion-induced metabolic acidosis? The rationale for why a metabolic acidosis should develop in response to saline infusion is not immediately apparent, as there should not be any excess protons being delivered in the infusate. There are three potential mechanisms which have been cited: 1. One of the earliest explanations for this phenomenon was simply that bicarbonate ions are diluted by the isotonic fluid, and acidosis occurs as a result. Thus, this entity is sometimes referred to as "dilutional acidosis." 2. The "Stewart approach" to acid-base metabolism rejected the dilutional explanation above, reasoning that BOTH bicarbonate ions and protons would be diluted by saline infusion equally, and therefore could not be the reason for the development of acidosis. Instead, a concept called "strong ion difference" (SID) is introduced to explain this: in order to maintain electroneutrality in the presence of diluting fluid, water must dissociate, providing excess Continue reading >>

    DKA How long do I have

    What I want to know is if my pump runs out of insulin at 4 a.m. how long before DKA sets in. I will be getting more insulin in the morning. Will I survive.

  2. Stump86

    Even when a pump says empty it will usually still have a few units left (5-10U) so that may be enough to hold you over.
    DKA can occur in just a few hours of no insulin, but you will have IOB for at least 4 hours after your pump actually gets empty. If you are worried you should test for ketones every few hours to make sure they aren't building up. And be on the lookout for any symptoms.

Normal Saline Intoxication - Deranged Physiology

Uncontrolled pancreatic secretions as a cause of acidosis The overzealous administration of sodium chloride causes a normal anion gap metabolic acidosis by decreasing the strong ion difference. This is the archetypal normal anion gap acidosis. Previously discussed calculations suggest that every bag of saline increases the serum chloride by 3mmol/L. In Stewarts terms, normal saline has a strong ion difference of 0mmol/L (given how equal the concentrations of sodium and chloride are), and thus adding it to a body fluid will decrease the strong ion difference. The strong ion difference of Hartmanns, on the other hand, is 28mmol/L, and so it has a much gentler acidifying effect. This has been demonstrated experimentally in a cohort of 5 septic patients; and the theory is discussed in detail here . Change in strong ion difference following the infusion of normal saline The above graph is adopted from Lobo et al, who in 2003 infused a series of healthy volunteers with 2000ml of normal saline to study the difference between sodium chloride and Hartmanns solution. Now, enough saline-bashing. If we remain faithful to the interpretation of acid base disorders in terms of the strong ion dif Continue reading >>

    I used to use the ketostix every morning -- was in moderate zone most days. After a while I stopped checking. That was about 2 months ago. Last week, I took my daughter to college orientation session, and had some chicken nuggets at Chik-Fil-A (my only cheat in about 6 months), so when I got home I decided to check. The result was negative ketones, so I tried to go back to induction levels for a few days. It's been a week, and they still register negative every morning. Could the sticks have "gone bad"? The scale is not changing too much -- the normal fluctuations, but nothing dramatic. Should I go out and get some more ketostix, or just stick with it and not worry so much?

  2. hayes

    The sticks have a 6month shelf life after opening. The least little moisture inside the bottle can effect the reading also as can other conditions.
    If your very curious, get a new bottle.
    Remember that some people never make the sticks change color.

  3. omgtwins

    Because Ketosis stix don't really do much when it comes to encouragment - I don't use them. There are way too many variables - you could be in ketosis and it may not show, you are'nt in ketosis but loosing weight...IMNSHO I stick to the scale once a week and the measurements every month - the clothes in the back of the closet that are slowly moving up are also better indicators. You know what you're eating - good or bad, so save some money and get rid of those sticks!
