Adults and children with Asthma are prone to low levels of oxygen in the blood. Another cause for low levels of oxygen in blood is a trauma or injury to the lungs. Taking extremely strong pain medications can also result in the levels of oxygen in blood to decrease. Cardiac issues also result in decreased levels of oxygen in the blood.
Lymphocytes play an important role in the immune response of the body. An atypical lymphocyte is non- malignant condition of the lymphocyte that is characterized by large abnormal structure of the lymphocytes. A number of stimuli are responsible for the development of atypical lymphocytes. Know what are atypical lymphocytes, its causes, treatment and home remedies.
An individual experiencing the blood clots will have to speak with the concerned doctor. The reason for talking to a doctor is that only a few people diagnosed with blood clots or deep vein thrombosis can get into the hot tub. It is because of the condition that the individual is experiencing. Depending on the symptoms experienced by the individual and the state of the clot, getting into hot tub will be of help, as the warmth provided by the water can reduce the swelling by decreasing the size of the blood clots. It further helps in preventing the growth of the size of the existing clots.
Yes, the human body does possess the ability to absorb the clots. However, it has limitations. One should not assume that the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis or DVT would not be a problem. Do note down the fact that “DVT means ER,” as the clots grow in size and enter the bloodstream; they cause pulmonary embolism or PE. It is a case where the clots stop the blood from reaching the lungs and, when this happens, death is imminent.
Hypereosinophilic syndrome is a disease that is characterized by extremely high blood eosinophils. This means that the body manufactures too many white blood cells in the bone marrow. Due to the large collection of white blood cells in the bone marrow, they start to spill out of the bone marrow and start accumulating in other tissues and in the blood. Know the types, symptoms, treatment and diagnosis of Hypereosinophilic syndrome.
Waldenström's Syndrome is the name given to a malignant disorder of the bone marrow and lymphatic tissues. This condition is a type of a lymphoma in which there is excessive numbers of a white blood cell called B lymphocytes. Know the causes, symptoms and treatment of Waldenström's Syndrome.
Erdheim-Chester Disease is an extremely rare pathological condition affecting multiple systems of the body which usually strikes in adulthood.1 Know the causes, symptoms, treatment and diagnosis of Erdheim-Chester Disease.
Talking about low blood pressure or hypotension, this occurs when the pressure of the blood is low in the arteries. Low blood pressure arises because of the less volume of blood, expansion of blood vessels, side effects of certain drugs, cardiac issues and anemia. Make sure you consume a lot of water if the low blood pressure is due to dehydration. There are a few medicines, which help in treating low blood pressure.
A hypercoagulable state (HS) or thrombophilia is an acquired or inherited medical condition where the patient has an increased chances of developing a blood clot. There are different types of hypercoagulable states and all have different causes; the common theme among them is that they all increase the patient’s chances of developing a clot.
Thrombophilia is a pathological condition of the circulatory system in which an individual affected by it has an increased tendency to form blood clots. Thrombophilia can be both congenital as well as acquired and can range from mild to extremely severe. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment and diagnosis of Thrombophilia.
Microcytic hypochromic anemia is a type of anemia characterised by appearance of abnormally small sized red blood cells with poor oxygen carrying capacity as it has low concentration of haemoglobin. Microcytic hypochromic anemia is mainly caused by disruption in haemoglobin and red blood cell production in the bone marrow. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment, prevention of Microcytic hypochromic anemia.
DIC or Disseminated intravascular coagulation is a fatal and rare pathological disease in which there is widespread clotting in the body. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment, risk factors, complications of Disseminated intravascular coagulation.
This is a form of anemia in which the bone marrow stops making red blood cells and this condition is known as Pure Red Cell Aplasia (PRCA). This results in anemia and reticulocytopenia, which is a condition where there is absence of young red cells. Know the types, causes, symptoms, treatment, risk factors and diagnosis of Pure Red Cell Aplasia (PRCA).
If patient has abnormal proteins detected in his/her blood, then the patient has a group of conditions known as monoclonal gammopathies. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment, risk factors and diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathies.
Infection in the blood or Sepsis is a medical emergency which is caused by a bacterial infection in the blood. This condition is also known by the name of septicemia. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment, prognosis of Infection in the blood or Sepsis.
