Sorry, no etymologies found.
This complication can lead to another, called hypervolemia, which is a vast decrease in blood plasma volume.
Even in these cases the entire circulation can often be restored to normal, with normal pulmonary arterial pressures and cardiac output reduced to normal values, by vigorous symptomatic therapy, relieving bronchial obstruction, the hypoxia, hypercapnea, polycythemia and hypervolemia, and by active treatment of congestive failure.
During pregnancy along with the change in the cytokine milieu, other physiological changes including insulin resistance, thrombophilia, immunosuppression and hypervolemia, increase the risk of chronic disease
In uncontrolled studies, hypertension seems to be more effective in increasing CBF than hemodilution or hypervolemia.
Introduction Triple-H therapy and its separate components (hypervolemia, hemodilution, and hypertension) aim to increase cerebral perfusion in subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) patients with delayed cerebral ischemia.
One of seven studies on hypervolemia showed statistically significant CBF increase compared to baseline; there was no comparable control group.
They can have increased blood volume and increased hypervolemia (i.e., flooding of the body).
Elevated CVPs may indicate hypervolemia, low CVP may indicate hypovolemia.
