Because blood volume
and Hct are inversely related, Hct can be increased by achieving optimal blood volume
On the other hand, the increased pulmonary blood volumes
result in a decrease in static lung volumes due to the volume compression.
The cerebral oxygenation and blood volume
responses were continuously monitored by a dual-wavelength NIRS (Model MRM91, MicroRunman, NIM Inc, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).
For example, many doctors recommend that people with orthostatic intolerance drink extra water and consume salt to increase their blood volume
7] Therefore, we used a special probe with a 2-cm distance between each optode to measure the change in blood volume
in the skin tissue.
In studies of the effect of blood volume
per spot on analyte recovery, the total Phe concentration of the blood used was equal to the endogenous Phe, which was not measured, plus the Phe enrichment.
In addition, the company said it has entered into an agreement to install its BVA-100 Blood Volume
Analyzer at a Hospital in Minnesota within the next two months.
The key words searched were: blood volume
monitor, hematocrit based blood volume
monitor, intradialytic hypotension, hypotension, Sc[O.
Daxor Corporation said that its published studies, using the BVA-100, have shown that blood volume
measurement is important in treating heart failure, critical care patients in intensive care units and in diagnosing the true status of complex anemias and syncope (fainting).
Due to plasma refilling from the albumin, EG's blood volume
increased to +2%, with a paradoxical drop in blood pressure to 76/39 mmHg.
The panel says other safe alternatives, such as intraoperative blood salvage (collecting blood from a patient during an operation for subsequent use) and hemodilution (removing blood and substituting other fluids to keep blood volume
up) are useful in selected cases, while some of the more innovative approaches, including artificial blood, remain experimental.
Stephen Scharf, Medical Director of Nuclear Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital, said, "Our interest in providing Blood Volume
Analysis includes diagnosing volume derangements in various medical conditions and conducting never before studied applications of blood volume
measurements in common clinical conditions such as hypertension.
