432 Possible Causes for Decreased Plasma Volume

  • Stress Polycythemia

    plasma volume.[] Since the Hct is a ratio between the number of circulating RBCs per unit volume of whole blood, an elevated Hct may be caused by a decreased plasma volume.[] It results from decreasing plasma volume and subsequent hemoconcentration.[]

  • Therapeutic Phlebotomy

    Relative polycythaemia explained The decrease in plasma volume that causes an increase in the mass of red blood cells characterizes relative polycythaemia.[] Relative polycythaemia is characterised by a decrease in plasma volume which causes an apparent increase in the red blood cell mass.[] It is comes in two types: absolute polycythaemia or relative polycythaemia that are defined as increase in the number of red blood cells and decrease in the plasma volume,[]

  • Hypovolemia

    « Back to Glossary Index Hypovolemia is a decrease in blood volume, more accurately a decrease in plasma volume. Hypovolemia is also know as oligemia or shock .[] .- ) Volume depletion Clinical Information Abnormally decreased volume of circulating fluid (plasma) in body.[] Abnormally decreased volume of circulating fluid (plasma) in the body. An abnormally low volume of blood circulating through the body.[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Cortisol and aldosterone deficiency together cause changes in blood levels of sodium and potassium and a decrease in plasma volume, which can lead to extreme dehydration and[] Urinary salt and water loss cause severe dehydration, plasma hypertonicity, acidosis, decreased circulatory volume, hypotension, and, eventually, circulatory collapse.[]

  • Loop Diuretic

    This agent reduces plasma and extracellular fluid volume resulting in decreased blood pressure and cardiac output.[] volume, increases plasma renin activity, increases aldosterone secretion, with consequent increases in urinary potassium and bicarbonate loss, and decreases in serum potassium[] English The diuretic action of HCTZ reduces plasma volume, with consequent increase in plasma renin activity, increase in adolsterone secretion, increase in urinary K and[]

  • Hypoaldosteronism

    Gynecomastia (enhanced breasts in men) Impotence In some acute cases, the condition may lead to decreased plasma volume thereby causing problems like circulatory insufficiency[] Isolated aldosterone deficiency results in low serum sodium concentrations (hyponatremia), decreased extracellular (including plasma) volume, and high serum potassium concentrations[] Hypoaldosteronism Complications Some of the possible complications of this condition are: Hyperkalemia Urinary sodium wasting, resulting in Hypotension and Volume depletion[]

  • Weight Lifting

    Plasma volume was decreased -14.3% (p less than 0.05) immediately following exercise and -7.0% (p less than 0.05) at 15 min into recovery, but had returned to the resting[] Plasma volume decreased linearly in relation to intensity of weight lifting with mean responses of -7.7 /- 0.8, -10.7 /- 0.8, -12.1 /- 0.9, and -13.9 /- 0.8% at 40, 50, 60[] It was concluded that heavy-resistance weight lifting elicits a significant decrease in plasma volume, which is similar in magnitude to that observed during running and cycling[]

  • Anemia

    Anemia is an independent risk factor for functional decline and mortality among older adults. Since mild anemia in older people is often under-diagnosed and ignored, its prevalence needs precise determination and recognition of predisposing factors. None of the previous studies based on the data obtained from the[…][]

  • Burn Injury

    Decreased plasma volume, increased afterload and decreased cardiac contractility cause a decrease in cardiac output.[]

  • Hot Environment

    decreased circulating plasma volume were more marked after exercise without water intake.[] Body weight and left atrial diameter, a parameter that reflects changes in circulating plasma volume, were significantly decreased after exercise under both conditions.[] However, the decreases in both values were significantly greater after exercise without water intake than after exercise with water intake, indicating that dehydration and[]
