Causes of acute kidney failure include low blood pressure , blockage of the urinary tract , certain medications, muscle breakdown , and hemolytic uremic syndrome. Treatment of acute failure depends on the underlying cause. In the United States acute failure affects about 3 per 1, people a year.
Heart failure HF is a syndrome of ventricular dysfunction. Left ventricular failure causes shortness of breath and fatigue, and right ventricular failure causes peripheral and abdominal fluid accumulation; the ventricles can be involved together or separately.
Raised blood pressure BP is common after stroke but its causes, effects, and management still remain uncertain. Trials were identified from searching three electronic databases Medline, Cochrane Library and Web of Science Database. Three trials involving patients were included. Significant difference in BP values between treatment and placebo was found in two studies. No effect of the treatment was seen on dependency, death and vascular events at one, three or six months; the cumulative mortality and the number of vascular events at 12 months differed significantly in favour of treatment in one small trial which stopped prematurely.
Nephritic syndrome is a syndrome comprising signs of nephritis , which is kidney disease involving inflammation. It often occurs in the glomerulus , where it is called glomerulonephritis. Glomerulonephritis is characterized by inflammation and thinning of the glomerular basement membrane and the occurrence of small pores in the podocytes of the glomerulus. These pores become large enough to permit both proteins and red blood cells to pass into the urine yielding proteinuria and hematuria , respectively. By contrast, nephrotic syndrome is characterized by proteinuria and a constellation of other symptoms that specifically do not include hematuria.

Metrics details. For many years, cardiovascular disease CVD has been the leading cause of death around the world. Often associated with CVD are comorbidities such as obesity, abnormal lipid profiles and insulin resistance. Insulin is a key hormone that functions as a regulator of cellular metabolism in many tissues in the human body.
Yoga is a mind-body therapy based on movement, and it may provide a range of health benefits. Can it lower high blood pressure?
Preface xv Ellis D. Avner and Robert M. Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis David P. Bick and Eduardo C. Lau This article covers the rapidly advancing field of preimplantation genetic diagnosis PGD , the molecular genetic analysis of cells ta- ken from embryos formed through in vitro fertilization IVF. The article focuses on current practices in patient management, relevant IVF and PGD procedures, molecular methods used in the genetic analysis, and technical difficulties that can affect test results. It dis- cusses the growing list of indications for PGD including chromoso- mal disorders, monogenic disorders and human leukocyte antigen typing typing of embryos.
This second of two articles on understanding the clinical value of measuring urea concentration explores the clinical value of simultaneous measurement of urea and creatinine and calculating the urea:creatinine ratio. The article discusses the causes of increased and decreased ratio as well as the clinical application of the ratio. The main focus of the first article  was physiological topics, such as urea production and renal processing of urea. The main focus of this second article is the clinical value of simultaneous measurement of urea and creatinine and calculation of the urea: creatinine ratio.
Heart failure HF is a syndrome of ventricular dysfunction. Left ventricular failure causes shortness of breath and fatigue, and right ventricular failure causes peripheral and abdominal fluid accumulation; the ventricles can be involved together or separately. Diagnosis is initially clinical, supported by chest x-ray, echocardiography, and levels of plasma natriuretic peptides. See also Heart Failure in Children.
Metrics details. The ongoing coronavirus disease COVID pandemic has swept all over the world, posing a great pressure on critical care resources due to large number of patients needing critical care. Statements from front-line experts in the field of intensive care are urgently needed. Sixteen front-line experts in China fighting against the COVID epidemic in Wuhan were organized to develop an expert statement after 5 rounds of expert seminars and discussions to provide trustworthy recommendation on the management of critically ill COVID patients. Each expert was assigned tasks within their field of expertise to provide draft statements and rationale.
