B Vitamins Mnemonic: Metabolic deficiencies- Water and Fat Soluable Cofactors Tutorial

A mnemonic for B vitamins - convoluted, but it's better than brute force memorization. Please SUBSCRIBE for new videos: More cool stuff coming as we get more Hippo Helpers! Pathology tutorial playlist at: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIPkjUW-piR2HEbxFVzJ-jIH0TxcBrc_K In addition to a quick introduction to B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6 and B12, there are keywords at the end for fat-soluble vitamin A, D, E, and K. PS: Cobalamin is intentionally mispronounced as "Cobalbumin" - it helps remember the anemia association, like how "Albumin" is in the blood :) Visit: http://helphippo.com for archived videos, organized by topic/school year.

Easy Anemia Classification: Introduction for Medical Pathology Students

A simplified introduction to anemia pathology, including iron deficiency, lead poisoning, vitamins, DNA. We classify anemias according to red blood cell size; environmental or genetic causes. Please SUBSCRIBE for new videos: More cool stuff coming as we get more users. Pathology mnemonic tutorial playlist at: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIPkjUW-piR2HEbxFVzJ-jIH0TxcBrc_K BTW: I say "Gap6" instead of "G6PD" because there is a "gap" in the RBC membrane where a "bite" was taken out. (Mnemonic for abnormal cell morphology for this enzyme deficiency.) G6PD shows "High Loss" during a crisis, (like after eating fava beans...) but most of the time, your (asymptomatic) RBCs are just born with defective glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.

Clinical Consequences of Liver Disease

Vitamins A, D, E and K are all stored in the liver, as is vitamin B12. Therefore, in liver damage, you can’t store as many of these as you would like to.   Portal circulation Note that there are no valves in the portal circulation. The portal supply is 70% of the blood that the liver receives. The other 30% is supplied by the hepatic artery.   The four main veins that contribute to the portal system are: Splenic vein Superior mesenteric

Powders of iron plus other micronutrients for home (point-of-use) fortification of foods consumed by pregnant women | Cochrane

Pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to nutrient deficiencies due to the requirements of the growing baby during the pregnancy. In low-income countries, many women have diets with low content of vitamins and minerals, and they participate in long hours of physical labour. They are also exposed to recurrent infections, which make nutritional deficiencies worse. Thus, lack of adequate nutrition can contribute to the poor health of these women their babies.

Interventions for leg cramps during pregnancy | Cochrane

Leg cramps are experienced as sudden, intense involuntary contractions of the leg muscles. They are a common problem in pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. They are painful and can interfere with daily activities, disrupt sleep, and reduce quality of life. Various interventions have been used during pregnancy to treat leg cramps, including drug, electrolyte (magnesium, calcium, sodium) and vitamin therapies, and non-drug therapies such as muscle stretching. The goal of this review was to find out what is effective and safe for treating leg cramps during pregnancy.

Intermittent regimens of iron supplementation during pregnancy | Cochrane

Anaemia is a frequent condition during pregnancy, particularly among women from low- and middle-income countries who have insufficient iron intake to meet increased iron needs. Traditionally, pregnancy anaemia has been prevented with the provision of daily iron supplements, however, it has recently been proposed that if women take supplements less often, such as once or twice weekly rather than daily, this might reduce side effects and increase acceptance and adherence to supplementation. In this review we assess the benefits and harms of intermittent (i.e. two or three times a week on non-consecutive days) oral supplementation with iron or iron + folic acid or iron + vitamins and minerals for pregnant women.

Active B12 assay for diagnosing vitamin B12 deficiency | Advice | NICE

The Abbott ARCHITECT Active‑B12 assay is a test for detecting levels of serum holotranscobalamin, which is the metabolically available component of vitamin B12, and can be used as a marker of vitamin B12 deficiency. Four diagnostic test accuracy studies, using different reference standards, reported greater diagnostic accuracy for the Active‑B12 assay compared with assays measuring other markers of vitamin B12 deficiency. The assay needs less sample preparation than a total vitamin B12 test and the expected cost is about £3.50 per test including VAT, depending on sample throughput.
