How does acute renal failure cause anemia?

How do the two relate to each other? Is the anemia hemolytic, or hypovolemic? Is it the presence of hematuria that causes anemia, could it be severe enough to do so?

Can NYHA's classification of "dyspnea" be used in pneumology?

Some of my professors said that NYHA's classification can only be used in the cardiological context, whiles others said that it can also be used in pneumology. So what is the universally accepted protocol, really?

What are the "measured" values that can be acquired from an echocardiography?

I'm having trouble interpreting an echocardiogram with all the many values associated with it. So what are the values that are "measured" in echocardiography but cannot be acquired through calculation from other data? Can anyone please provide an example of the echocardiogram.

Are all doctors required to know how to read EKGs?

I read somewhere that it is a requirement. But some doctors at the hospital I go to usually rely on the ready-interpretations given by the cardiologist.

What is "échos systoliques multiples"?

I read a french medical book "Pathologie Médicale" in the cardiologie section. It is written that in mitral regurgitation due to ruptured chordae tendinae, if mode M echocardiographiy is used then what can be observed are: chaotic diastolic vibrations of the greater mitral valve (grand valve mitral). AND "ÉCHOS SYSTOLIQUES MULTIPLES". I've tried using google search for some insights but to no avail. So can someone please explain? Is there an English equivalent of this term?
