Physiology Tutorial - Blood Flow

The task of maintaining an adequate interstitial homeostasis (the proper nutritional environment surrounding all cells in your body) requires that blood flows almost continuously through each of the millions of capillaries in the body. The following is a brief description of the parameters that govern flow through a given vessel. All bloods vessels have certain lengths (L) and internal radii (r) through which blood flows when the pressure in the inlet and outlet are unequal (Pi and Po respectively); in other words there is a pressure difference (ΔP) between the vessel ends, which supplies the driving force for flow. Because friction develops between moving blood and the stationary vessels walls, this fluid movement has a given resistance (vascular), which is the measure of how difficult it is to move blood through a vessel. One can then describe a relative relationship between vascular flow, the pressure difference, and resistance (i.e., the basic flow equation):

Blood Slides

The LIONS have been recently and suddenly forced to migrate with the wildebeests to new web server software, so everything is kinda messed up in the LION DEN right now. HINT: Change the URL from "lionden.com" to "lionden.info" to view the old "legacy" Lion Den (until I get this one fully tamed).

Store doping samples for 10 years to stop sports cheats, say anti-doping bodies

Blood and urine samples taken from athletes to check for doping should be stored for 10 years to enable technology to catch up with substances that currently evade detection, international anti-doping experts have said.

Is adrenaline safe and effective as a treatment for out of hospital cardiac arrest?

Adrenaline (epinephrine) has been an integral component of advanced resuscitation algorithms since the early 1960s. Initial guidelines for the treatment of cardiac arrest recommended the use of intracardiac adrenaline (0.5 mg) or high dose intravenous adrenaline (10 mg), repeating with larger doses if required.1 The mechanism of action for adrenaline in cardiac arrest is attributed to stimulation of α2 receptors in vascular smooth muscle, causing vasoconstriction. This increases aortic diastolic pressure, which in turn leads to increased coronary perfusion pressures, which improves short term survival. Experimental studies, however, suggest that adrenaline impairs cerebral macrovascular2 and microvascular blood flow,3 4 increases ventricular arrhythmias, and increases myocardial dysfunction after return of spontaneous circulation.5 This creates the paradox of better short term survival but at the potential cost of worse long term outcomes.

LFTs - Liver Function Tests

Almost every patient admitted to hospital will have their liver function tested, along with a full blood count, urea and electrolytes, glucose, and probably CRP. A typical set of LFTS will include: Bilirubin - can show pre-hepatic, intra-hepatic and post-hepatic causes of jaundice. A patient won't necessarily be visibly jaundiced if bilirubin is raised, especially if the bilirubin is not grossly elevated.
