JAMA Network Open; Hundemer GL, Clarke A et. al.

Nov 9th, 2022 - Eating disorders lead to increased mortality and reduced quality of life. While the acute presentations of eating disorders frequently involve electrolyte abnormalities, it remains unknown whether electrolyte abnormalities may precede the future d...

Apparent mineralocorticoid excess: comprehensive overview of molecular genetics.
Journal of Translational Medicine; Lu YT, Zhang D et. al.

Nov 5th, 2022 - Apparent mineralocorticoid excess is an autosomal recessive form of monogenic disease characterized by juvenile resistant low-renin hypertension, marked hypokalemic alkalosis, low aldosterone levels, and high ratios of cortisol to cortisone metabo...

Hypokalaemia - an active contributor to hepatic encephalopathy?
Metabolic Brain Disease; Mikkelsen ACD, Thomsen KL et. al.

Nov 4th, 2022 - Patients with cirrhosis are prone to electrolyte disorders, including hypokalaemia. The available evidence suggests that hypokalaemia facilitates hyperammonaemia and thus increases the risk for hepatic encephalopathy (HE). In case studies, plasma ...

Aug 8th, 2022 - Within four weeks of consent, subjects will have an Implantable Loop Recorder (ILR) (Medtronic LINQ) device implanted. Subjects will be given a transmitter/charger and a Patient Care Assistant which they will be required to keep for the duration o...

Noradrenaline Infusion Versus Phenylephrine Infusion in Improving Serum Lactate Level in HIPEC

May 13th, 2022 - Arterial blood gas testing is considered one of the most important and widely used test in the detection of acidosis, alkalosis, electrolytes disturbance and tissue perfusion. in regard to tissue perfusion serum lactate above 4 mmol/L indicates po...

Metabolic Alkalosis in Heart Failure

May 4th, 2022 - Metabolic alkalosis (MA) is the most common acid-base disorder and when it's severe it can have effects on cellular function and contribute to an increase in mortality. MA is a common complication of heart failure (HF) especially when patients are...

Secretin in Refeeding

Feb 11th, 2022 - We hypothesize that secretin release and/or response is aberrant in restrictive anorexics. This results in water and salt wasting and/or metabolic alkalosis in many restrictive anorexics during refeeding. We will thus characterize secretin levels ...
