HemorrhageData

A hemorrhage is the loss of blood escaping from the circulatory system. Typically, a healthy person can endure a loss of 10 to 15 percent of the total blood volume without serious medical difficulties. More...

 HemorrhageData_
 
 HemorrhageData_eType
 Types of Hemorrhages.
 
 ImpairedAlveolarExchangeExacerbationData
 Generic way to specify the effectivness of alveolar exchange.
 
 IntubationData
 Insertion of tube or adjuct into the patient's airway.
 
 IntubationData_eType
 Enumeration Types of Intubation/Airway Adjuncts.
 
 LobarPneumoniaExacerbationData
 Worsen the effects of the Lobar Pneumonia condition.
 
 MechanicalVentilationData
 Mechanically breathing for the patient, such as with a squeeze bag or other equipment.
 
 NeedleDecompressionData
 A 14-16G intravenous caninula is inserted into the second rib-space in the mid-clavcular line. The needle is advanced until air can be aspirated into a connecting syringe. The needle is withdrawn and the caninula is left to allow air flow out of the pleural space. This effectively converts the closed pneumothorax into an open pneumothorax.
 
 PericardialEffusionData
 Pericardial effusion ("fluid around the heart") is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pericardial cavity. Because of the limited amount of space in the pericardial cavity, fluid accumulation leads to an increased intrapericardial pressure which can negatively affect heart function. A pericardial effusion with enough pressure to adversely affect heart function is called cardiac tamponade. Pericardial effusion usually results from a disturbed equilibrium between the production andre-absorption of pericardial fluid, or from a structural abnormality that allows fluid to enter the pericardial cavity. Normal levels of pericardial fluid are from 15 to 50 mL.
 
 PulmonaryShuntExacerbationData
 Pulmonary shunt is when the alveoli of the lungs are perfused with blood as normal, but ventilation (the supply of air) fails to supply the perfused region.
 
 RespiratoryFatigueData
 Respiratory muscle weakness caused by excessive effort relative to the strength and endurance of the muscles.
 
 RespiratoryMechanicsConfigurationData
 Update the parameters of the Respiratory mechanics.
 
 SubstanceBolusData
 An administration of a substance that is given all at one time to raise its concentration in blood to an effective level.
 
 SubstanceBolusData_eRoute
 Types of Substance Administration means.
 
 SubstanceCompoundInfusionData
 Continuous injection of a compound.
 
 SubstanceInfusionData
 Continuous injection of a specific substance.
 
 SupplementalOxygenData
 Extra Oxygen provided to the patient.
 
 SupplementalOxygenData_eDevice
 
 TensionPneumothoraxData
 A pneumothorax is an abnormal collection of air or gas in the pleural space that separates the lung from the chest wall. Like pleural effusion (liquid buildup in that space), pneumothorax may interfere with normal breathing.
 
 UrinateData
 Empty the bladder of its contents.

Detailed Description

A hemorrhage is the loss of blood escaping from the circulatory system. Typically, a healthy person can endure a loss of 10 to 15 percent of the total blood volume without serious medical difficulties.
