Different types of abnormalities due to disturbances in fluid and electrolyte balance are given below: 1. The most common cause is loss of gastrointestinal fluid, due to: Chapter 30; Electrolyte and Water Balance 359 a. Small intestinal obstruction and paralytic ileus where fluid accumulates in the lumen c. Since equivalent amounts of sodium and water are lost, the plasma sodium is often normal. Hypovolemia will reduce renal blood flow and may cause renal circulatory insufficiency, oliguria and uremia. Therefore, in postoperative cases, care should be taken to adequately replace sodium by giving sufficient quantity of normal saline. The commonest cause is diarrhea, where the fluid lost has only half of the sodium concentration of the plasma. But the volume depletion will reduce renal blood flow and stimulates aldosterone secretion leading to further sodium retention and aggravating hypertension. The increase in osmolality will stimulate thirst and increase in the water intake. Isotonic Expansion Water and sodium retention is often manifested as edema and occurs secondary to hypertension or cardiac failure. This often results from hypoalbuminemia (edema in nephrotic syndrome, protein malnutrition, etc. The intravascular volume cannot be restored since the low colloid osmotic pressure tends to drive the fluid out into the extravascular space, aggravating the edema. Hypotonic Expansion Predominant water excess results only when the normal homeostatic mechanisms fail. Extracellular hypertonicity may lead to brain cell dehydration, leading to coma and death. Sodium (as sodium bicarbonate) is also important in the regulation of acid-base balance (Chapter 29). However, body can conserve sodium to such an extent that on a sodium-free diet urine does not contain sodium. Ideally dietary sodium intake should be lower than potassium, but processed foods have increased sodium intake. When urine is formed, original glomerular filtrate (175 liters per day) contains sodium 800 gm/day, out of which 99% is reabsorbed. Different mechanisms are: (a) Sodium hydrogen exchanger located in the proximal convoluted 360 Textbook of Biochemistry; Section C: Clinical and Applied Biochemistry Box 30. In dehydration, when water is predominantly lost, blood volume is decreased with apparent increased concentration of sodium. Drugs: Ampicillin Tetracycline Anabolic steroids Oral contraceptives Loop diuretics 1. Osmotic diuretics tubules and ascending limb; (b) Sodium chloride cotransporter in the distal tubules (ascending limb); (c) Sodium channels in the collecting duct; and (d) Sodium potassium exchanger in the distal tubule. The rate of sodium excretion is directly affected by the rate of filtration of sodium which is decided by the renal plasma flow and blood pressure (acting through atrial natriuretic peptide). Sodium restriction in diet is, therefore, advised in congestive cardiac failure and in hypertension. In the early phases of congestive cardiac failure, hydrostatic pressure on venous side is increased; so water is primarily retained in the body. This causes dilution of sodium concentration, which triggers aldosterone secretion. This vicious cycle is broken when aldosterone antagonists are administered as drugs.

Rather medicine 6 clinic generic 5mg apixaban mastercard, the specification patently demonstrates that the claimed color concentrate medicine recall buy 5mg apixaban overnight delivery, a blend of pigment and carrier polymer medicine pills purchase 5 mg apixaban free shipping, is directed to the use of color concentrates as that term had been used before in the art brazilian keratin treatment generic apixaban 2.5 mg without a prescription, i. This argument, that Burlone Claim 5 covers the final colored blend that is spun directly into fiber, is essentially an attempt to argue that the claimed color concentrate covers the "thermoplastic polymeric material to be colored" of subpart (A)(4) and part (B) of Claim 1. Such an argument is completely inconsistent with the patent specification, which repeatedly distinguishes between the "color concentrate" and the uncolored nylon, or polymer to be colored. The specification makes clear that the claimed "color concentrate" is a substance that is separate from the thermoplastic polymeric material to be colored. At the "first blend" stage, the color concentrate is composed of catdye polymer and 25-35% pigment; at the "second blend" stage, the initial color concentrate is "diluted" with uncolored nylon to the level of 1% pigment. Cohen testified that "these colored products, or these final colored materials, are excluded [from the scope of the claims of the Burlone patent]. In support of his assertion that the final colored products are not included within the scope of the Burlone color concentrate, Dr. Cohen discussed an entry in the 1968 Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology wherein "very clear distinctions" are made among carrier polymers, host polymers to be colored, and final colored products. Harris conceded that in part (B) of Claim 1, the (A) polymer and the thermoplastic material to be colored are two different materials. Notwithstanding the "1 to 70 percent pigment" language, all of the examples contained in the patent teach the addition of "one part of the solid color concentrate" to anywhere from 21 to 39 parts of an uncolored material. As discussed supra, subpart (A)(4) and part (B) of Claim 1 expressly define the claimed invention in terms of its properties in reference to the "thermoplastic material to be colored" of the preamble. Instead, the Court concludes that the specification of the Burlone patent supports a construction of the preamble as a limitation on the patent claims. Like the specification, the prosecution history of the Burlone patent reveals that Dr. Burlone repeatedly distinguished his color concentrate from the host polymer to be colored. Accordingly, when introduced into the host polymer to be colored, polymeric component A of the instant color concentrate dissolves or disperses in the host polymer leaving the coloring component B in a state identical to that in which it would be found if it were dispersed directly into the host polymer. The final product, which is a colored resin containing 1-2% coloring agent, cannot be employed as a coloring agent such as that of the instant claims, wherein up to 70% of coloring agent is present for the purpose of combination with a virgin thermoplastic to produce a colored final product. In fact, if the pigments of Kazeras are to be used to color plastics, a method must be found for dispersing them in the host polymer. That the colored resins of Industrial Colours are not meant to be color concentrates for thermoplastic polymeric materials is clear from an observance of the colorant level of the resin, which at 5% is too low to be useful in the coloration of a host polymer. Moreover, the resins specified by Industrial Colours could not be melted with a thermoplastic material to be colored without substantial degradation or reaction and without any visible separation therefrom on a microscopic scale. The prosecution history of the Burlone patent, like the specification, demonstrates that the claimed invention is limited to a color concentrate for coloring thermoplastic polymeric materials. Harris, wherein he testified that the abovequoted excerpts from the Burlone prosecution history are taken out of context. While Defendants Rubber Mulch and Rubber Resources maintain that such colorant cannot have a binding agent, inherent in the coloring process is the fact that the colorant adheres to the rubber to form a coating. According to one authoritative chemical dictionary, the term "colorant" is described as a "substance that imparts color to another material or mixture. Colorants are either dyes or pigments and may be (1) naturally present in a material. As can be seen, this definition does not appear to limit the term to color additives, but instead is sufficiently broad to allow for inclusion of pigmented or dyed materials already included within the formulation. To be sure, there is some facial appeal to the argument that use of the phrase "further includes" in the relevant claims suggests that the addition of a separate colorant as an ingredient was envisioned by the inventors. This proffered interpretation, however, is belied by the illustrations given in the patent. Thus, claim 36 defines a cough and cold medication comprising two ingredients-ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine-in "combinatory immixture. The trial court reviewed the claims, the written description, and the prosecution history, and concluded that the phrase "combinatory immixture" required "the two ingredients in a single form such as a tablet or elixir.
