Any of the S&S associated with asthma may occur with one illness or even several separate illnesses, but not recur over a longer period. For example one episode of bronchitis may mimic asthma, and you could have more than one case of bronchitis in a year if the patient is severely sick. So a diagnosis of asthma can only be made if the S&S are recurrent over a long period of time. Classic signs of asthma (coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath) can all be symptoms of other illness's. So just hearing a wheeze or cough does not definitely mean asthma and to make it even more confusing not all asthmatics wheeze.
Case Study Progress. The room air ABG results are reviewed. According to the results M.M. is in respiratory acidosis. Because of M.M.’s increased Kussmaul respirations he is unable to fully express carbon dioxide from his lungs causing the carbon dioxide concentration of the blood to increase and the pH to decrease causing acidosis.
The most common causes of ESRD in the U.S. are diabetes and high blood pressure. 2 – History of congestive heart failure CHF is a condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body. CHF may affect either the right side (right-sided heart failure) or the left side (left-sided heart failure) of the heart, but usually both sides are involved. As the heart loses pumping action, blood may back up into the lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, arms, and legs. The most common cause of CHF is coronary artery disease, a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart.

It is very hard for a psychiatrist to diagnose any disease or syndrome because of this. If a psychiatrist isn’t 100% sure or mistakes a syndrome, the patient can be sent the wrong medicine and may get worse depression. This is why it is a must to label patients with a disorder so they receive the correct medication. Before DSM had been updated, doctors and psychiatrists diagnose a different syndrome/disease to another. An example of this happed in 1972 when an interview with a patient was filmed.
When RBC levels are low, the body’s tissues cannot obtain enough oxygen. RBCs in the blood are measured by the hematocrit (the percentage of the blood volume made up of RBCs) or by the hemoglobin (the essential oxygen-carrying protein in the RBC). Erythrocytosis occurs if either of these values is elevated. The normal limits on these blood values for males and females respectively are 52% and 47% for the hematocrit, and 17.7 g/dl and 15.7 g/dl for hemoglobin concentration. B.
Nowadays many studies on insomnia manage to find the answers on the causes that lead to this health problem and the solution to overcome it. However it is not easy to propagate the society to be aware about this issue. People have many thought about this health issue.
