Running head: Impact of hypovolemic shock Impact of hypovolemic shock Anastasia Arnold Anatomy and physiology Professor Greco Springfield Technical Community College 1 Impact of hypovolemic shock Hypovolemic shock occurs when large amounts of blood and fluids are make it difficult for the heart to pump a sufficient amount of blood to the body. Blood can be lost through cuts or other injuries on the body or internal bleeding. This type of shock can cause multiple organs to cease working correctly. The human body responds to this shock by activating the following physiologic systems. The hematologic system responds to severe blood loss by contracting the bleeding vessels.
Lab 2: Physical Measurement & Properties: Essential Tools for Lab Report Objective: The purpose of this lab was to learn about and gain skills regarding the measuring of different substances. The objective of this lab was to study the properties of density, boiling point, and solubility in order to identify an unknown substance. Introduction: As nurses, we will encounter and number of tedious measurements that will affect a patient’s life. The preciseness, accuracy, and percent error of these measurements could make all the difference in the world to a person’s circumstances. These measurements include but are not limited to: mass of a patient in kilograms, blood pressure in mmHg, body temperature in degrees Celcius, respiration rate, and pulse-oximetry.
In atrial fibrillation, a problem with the heart's electrical system the atria to quiver, or fibrillate. The quivering upsets the normal rhythm between the atria and the lower parts (ventricles) of the heart. The lower parts may beat fast and without a regular rhythm. Atrial fibrillation is dangerous because it greatly increases the risk of stroke. If the heart doesn't beat strongly, blood can collect, or pool, in the atria.
These symptoms may come and go; different symptoms may appear at different times during the course of this disease. No two cases of Lupus are alike so people may experience different signs and symptoms. Here is a list of the most common symptoms of lupus for men and women; extreme fatigue, headaches, painful or swollen joints, fever, anemia, swelling, pain in the chest, sensitivity to sunlight, hair loss, and abnormal blood clotting. This disease affects the kidneys, lungs, central nervous system, blood vessels, blood, and the heart. By affecting the kidney, it may impair their ability to rid waste from their body.
Sodium began leaked into the cells and potassium exited. Due to all this rapid change taking place Joseph’s heart started convulsing in uncontrollable spasms of arrhythmic electrical activity. (Jenkins, G.W. and Tortora, G.J., 2013) C. Which cellular organelles have membranes as part of their cell structures? How would the breakdown of the membranes of these structures affect the function of Joseph’s heart cells?
Cushing’s syndrome A healthy life is disturbed by a wide range of conditions, we refer to as diseases. Either chronic, malignt, mortal, genetic or even treatable; a disease is any abnormality in a human’s anatomy or physiology, based on a lexical point of view. According to Mayoclinic.com Cushing’s Syndrome is a chronic disorder in which the adrenal cortex produces excessive amounts of the hormone cortisol. It may also be induced iatrogenically by treatment with exogenous corticosteroids for other medical conditions. Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands under regulation by the pituitary gland and hypothalamus.
A person with polycystic kidney disease will experience symptoms as a result of the damage caused by cysts (fluid-filled sacs) that develop in the kidneys. The signs and symptoms of polycystic kidney disease will vary based on the type of the condition a person has. For example, symptoms of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease include headaches and pain in the back and the sides. Polycystic kidney disease symptoms that may occur in someone with acquired cystic kidney disease include urinary tract infections and
Cysts may also develop in other organs, particularly the liver. Frequent complications of polycystic kidney disease include dangerously high blood pressure (hypertension), pain in the back or sides, blood in the urine (hematuria), recurrent urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and heart valve abnormalities. Additionally, people with polycystic kidney disease
Why this quality standard is needed Healthcare-associated infections can develop either as a direct result of healthcare intervention (such as medical or surgical treatment) or from being in contact with a healthcare setting. Healthcare-associated infections arise across a wide range of clinical conditions and can affect people of all ages. They can exacerbate existing or underlying conditions, delay recovery and adversely affect quality of life. Healthcare-associated infections can occur in otherwise healthy people, especially if invasive procedures or devices are used. Healthcare workers, family members and carers are also at risk of acquiring infections when caring for people.
Since the retina can't work properly under these conditions, you could permanently lose vision if the detached retina isn't repaired promptly. The possible risks for retinal detachment include being severely nearsighted, having had an eye injury or cataract surgery, family history of retinal detachment. Symptoms of retinal detachment include flashes of light, seeing "floaters" (small flecks or threads), darkening of your peripheral (side) vision. There are many ways to reattach a retina which include laser (thermal) or freezing (cryopexy), Pneumatic retinopexy, Scleral buckle, and Vitrectomy. Depending on the complexity of the retinal detachment, various combinations of vitrectomy, buckle, laser and gas bubble may be used to repair the retina.
