  • Thrombocytopenia

    […] and legs). [8] Causes [ edit ] Thrombocytopenia can be inherited or acquired. [9] Decreased production [ edit ] Abnormally low platelet production may be caused by: [10] Dehydration[en.wikipedia.org] PGRN deficiency further decreased platelet count in a passive-transfer ITP murine model.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her platelet count decreased to 41   10/L, but was stable at 30   10/L for 3 months with platelet transfusion independency for 12 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Clinical findings, external Dehydration, oedema, anaemia, sallow colour, pruritis, brown discolouration of nails, bruising (abnormal platelets); other findings may include[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Manage the sequelae of ACRF (hyperkalemia, uremia and volume overload can be life-threatening).[clinicaladvisor.com] Direct damage to the kidneys themselves Urine backed up in the kidneys Those things can happen when you: Have a traumatic injury with blood loss, such as in a car wreck Are dehydrated[webmd.com]

  • Acute Renal Failure

    People who are dehydrated or at risk of dehydration may need to be given fluids through a drip.[nhs.uk] Her hyperkalemia and kidney failure resolved after the surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dehydration caused by drastically reduced fluid intake or excessive use of diuretics (water pills) is a major cause of prerenal ARF.[healthcommunities.com]

  • Heat Stroke

    How can dehydration be prevented?[hopkinsmedicine.org] Laboratory studies with dogs have demonstrated heat stroke-induced sinoatrial node dysfunction in the setting of hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The associated hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis may lead to an acute renal, cardiac, and hemostatic failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    Regular consumption of high-energy food rich in carbohydrates aids the body in heat production, while 13-17 c (3-4L) of water a day prevents rapid dehydration from evaporation[science.jrank.org] Electrolyte abnormalities such as hyperkalemia and hypocalcemia that may worsen when patients are rewarmed contribute to the risk of arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] mean arterial pressure, cardiac output, and myocardial contractility-all of which may remain low until the patient is normothermic. 10 In moderate and severe hypothermia, dehydration[nursingcenter.com]

  • Malaria

    Doctors also watch for signs of dehydration , convulsions, anemia , and other complications that can affect the brain, kidneys, or spleen.[kidshealth.org] Doctors also watch for signs of dehydration, convulsions, anemia, and other complications that can affect the brain, kidneys, or spleen.[kidshealth.org] He was dehydrated, jaundiced, and drowsy. His chest was clear on auscultation, but he had hepatomegaly on abdominal palpation.[doi.org]

  • Heat Exhaustion

    Abstract This article reviews causes of marathon collapse related to physical exhaustion, heat exhaustion and dehydration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and dehydration.[nextcare.com] Dehydration can accentuate this cardiovascular strain. In contrast, excessive heat loss to the environment during cold weather may result in hypothermic collapse.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    This paper reviews recent data which imply: red blood cell dehydration, its abnormal adhesion properties to the endothelium, the participation of inflammatory phenomenon and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Care should be taken to avoid indiscriminate use of potassium supplements in IV fluids, and vigilance is needed when treating patients with medications that can cause hyperkalemia[clinicaladvisor.com] count, platelet count and reticulocyte count (p   0.00, p   0.03, p   0.02, respectively).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rhabdomyolysis

    At presentation, she was dehydrated. Blood analysis revealed acute renal failure and increased muscular enzymes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The Brugada sign may appear as an indication of severe hyperkalemia. This phenomena has recently been called as the "Brugada phenocopy".[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] platelet count or prolongation of the prothrombin time.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acidosis

    Treatment You can relieve dehydration-related acidosis by treating the underlying cause of dehydration, Medline Plus reports.[livestrong.com] She responded to thiazide diuretics and her BP is well controlled, and acidosis and hyperkalemia are corrected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On day 7 of hospitalization, her platelet count decreased to 8000 platelets/mm 3 , and her venous lactate level was 18.4 mmol/L. Three days later, the patient died.[academic.oup.com]
