In this video we discuss the progression of a systemic infection including systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis, severe sepsis, septic shock and multi organ dysfunction syndrome.

Sepsis - Wikipedia

For the genus of flies of this name, see Sepsis (genus) . Blood culture bottles: orange label for anaerobes , green label for aerobes , and yellow label for blood samples from children Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body's response to infection causes injury to its own tissues and organs. [8] Common signs and symptoms include fever , increased heart rate , increased breathing rate , and confusion . [1] There also may be symptoms related to a specific infection, such as a cough with pneumonia , or painful urination with a kidney infection . [2] In the very young, old, and people with a weakened immune system , there may be no symptoms of a specific infection and the body temperature may be low or normal, rather than high . [2] Severe sepsis is sepsis causing poor organ function or insufficient blood flow. [9] Insufficient blood flow may be evident by low blood pressure , high blood lactate , or low urine output . [9] Septic shock is low blood pressure due to sepsis that does not improve after reasonable amounts of intravenous fluids are given. [9] Sepsis is caused by an immune response triggered by an infection. [2] [3] Most commonly, the infection is b Continue reading >>

    During the winter months I feel excessively cold. The weather could be at 75 degrees farenheit and I still feel excessively cold. Is this because of extremely low body fat or is this just normal in ketosis. This happens every winter and I'm pretty much always in strict nutritional whole food based ketosis(or however you wanna word that ;)) Can anyone relate?

  2. evilant1981

    I do feel colder this winter than I have in the past, but I've just attributed it to my body being less insulated now, lol.
    I haven't put more thought into it than that, so I don't have a real answer. I'm just here to commiserate.

  3. Reeferhydro420

    Same here. It kinda sucks cuz at 40 degrees outside, I'm pretty much forced to wear 3 layers of shirts, a heavy jacket, gloves, beanie, two layers of sweatpants and socks and still cold lol! Wish I had some fat on me

Metabolic Acidosis

Patient professional reference Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use. You may find one of our health articles more useful. See also separate Lactic Acidosis and Arterial Blood Gases - Indications and Interpretations articles. Description Metabolic acidosis is defined as an arterial blood pH <7.35 with plasma bicarbonate <22 mmol/L. Respiratory compensation occurs normally immediately, unless there is respiratory pathology. Pure metabolic acidosis is a term used to describe when there is not another primary acid-base derangement - ie there is not a mixed acid-base disorder. Compensation may be partial (very early in time course, limited by other acid-base derangements, or the acidosis exceeds the maximum compensation possible) or full. The Winter formula can be helpful here - the formula allows calculation of the expected compensating pCO2: If the measured pCO2 is >expected pCO2 then additional respiratory acidosis may also be present. It is important to remember that metabolic acidosis is not a diagnosis; rather, it is a metabolic derangement that in Continue reading >>

    Can drinking lots of water affect ketostix reading. I have been on induction for 9 or 10 days & I can't get the sticks to change color
    I have been eating (barely any & not everyday) low carb bread & low carb pasta.. I will weigh sunday for the first time.. I am hopeful.. Yet a little obsessed & doubtful

    If you're eating low carb bread and low carb pasta, you're not doing Induction. Neither are on the acceptable foods list.
    They will both affect readings on the Ketostix more than water.
    Do you have the book Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution? That is where the right diet is, not on the website.

    Hi Nicole!
    The stix can indicate a problem, so it might be the low-carb "products" you're eating. We have to learn not to eat any of that stuff--at least for now.
    The reading could indeed be affected by the amount of water you drink. But that's no reason to stop drinking water.
    Or it could be just "you." I gave up on ketostix because I barely showed anything. I did lose a lot of weight though. We all have to try various things and find out what works for us--and the ketostix didn't work for me.
    If you cut out the bread and pasta and you're still not showing any purple (or not much), then the stix are probably not an appropriate tool for you; they'll just make you feel frustrated. If you cut out the bread and pasta and you get purple, then hooray, they did serve as a warning mechanism and it might be worthwhile to continue using them.
    Hope that helps,
    Laurie R.

Hypercapnia And Acidosis In Sepsis:a Double-edged Sword? | Anesthesiology | Asa Publications

The effects of hypercapnia in sepsis may be a function of the hypercapnia or the acidosis per se . As discussed, the effects of HCA on the immune response seem to be predominantly a function of the acidosis, rather than the hypercapnia per se , but the fact that the acidosis is hypercapnic rather than metabolic is of importance. The potential exists for hypercapnia to exert direct effects, independent of pH changes. A specific example is the binding of carbon dioxide to free amine groups on proteins to form carbamates, which can alter certain protein behavior or activity. The classic example is hemoglobin in which carbamino formation alters HbO2affinity. In addition, the potential for buffering of a HCA to modulate its effects in sepsis is also of importance. Buffered hypercapnia, that is, hypercapnia in the presence of normal pH, seems to worsen lung injury induced by intrapulmonary bacterial instillation. 36 To avoid the confounding effects of the administration of exogenous acid and/or alkali, animals were first exposed to environmental hypercapnia until renal buffering had restored pH to the normal range. These animals were then subjected to intrapulmonary inoculation of E. co Continue reading >>

    A few methods:
    - pee on a stick. There's a generic brand (I use Walgreen's) and the official brand. In general, they're called "ketone test strips" and they will change colors depending on the amount of ketone bodies in your urine. There is no "perfect level" of ketone bodies; you are either in ketosis or you are not. You will find these test strips in the same isle as the diabetic test stuff.
    - smell your breath. It will smell *awful* because a side product of ketosis is acetone in the urine and breath. While urine might always smell bad to you, your breath will smell truly, noticeably foul.
    - no bloating. Ketones do not bind with water the way glucose/glycogen does. You will not retain water when in ketosis. Nice!

    Warning: this might gross you out, but there's a simple answer to this question.
    OK, you want to know how you can tell? If you're in ketosis, you will often find oily residue floating in the toilet (assuming adequate lighting to see it). That's because while in ketosis, you excrete excess fat calories.

  3. Gary Wayne Nettoc

    The taste that people have mentioned is from the acetone in your breath, produced when you are in ketosis. There's a cool gadget that can measure that and let you know if you are in ketosis. KETONIX by Moose AB, Org.nr 556443-3794 It doesn't require strips or any replacement parts so in the long run it is the cheapest alternative.

    Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis that begins in the kidneys. People with lactic acidosis have kidneys that are unable to remove excess acid from their body. If lactic acid builds up in the body more quickly than it can be removed, acidity levels in bodily fluids — such as blood — spike. This buildup of acid causes an imbalance in the body’s pH level, which should always be slightly alkaline instead of acidic. There are a few ...
