albumin hypoalbumin

Rodney G Bowden, Ronald L Wilson
BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine if there is an association between lipid levels, serum albumin, and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in patients on dialysis. METHODS: Lipid profiles, albumin, and CRP levels were collected after a 12-hour fast from patients with end-stage renal disease (N = 105) who were on chronic hemodialysis. Patients were placed in an albumin group (>or= 3.8 g/dL) or a hypoalbumin group (< 3.8 g/dL), a high-risk CRP group (> 3 mg/dL) or a low-risk CRP group (<or= 3 mg/dL), and a low-risk group (low CRP and normal albumin) and high-risk group (high CRP and hypoalbumin)...

BACKGROUND: Because patients with low albumin levels may benefit from human albumin (HA) administration, we studied correction of hypovolemia with HA in hypoalbuminic elderly cardiac surgery patients. METHODS: In a prospective, randomized study, 50 patients aged >80 yr undergoing cardiac surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass with a preoperative serum albumin concentration of <3.5 mg/dL, received either 5% HA (n = 25) or hydroxyethyl starch (6% HES 130/0.4) (n = 25)...

OBJECTIVE: T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma was heterogeneous and relatively high incident in our country. It's response and prognosis were poor. This study was to analyze clinical feature and survival of T-NHL. METHODS: Records of 103 cases with T-NHL, treated from Dec 1998 to Dec 2004 in Cancer Center of Sun Yat-sen University, were retrospectively analyzed. All the patients were classified according to WHO 2001 Classification Criteria. RESULTS: Median age of the whole group was 35 (ranged 2-78) years-old...

It is very interesting and innovative to study the interrelationships between biological characteristics, particularly zinc status, and psychosocial conditions in old age, because there are few and fragmentary data in the literature. The aim of this study was to examine the interrelationship between serum albumin value (an indicator of zinc status) and some psychosocial characteristics in elderly Italian volunteers recruited for the ZINCAGE project, which is supported by the European Commission in the Sixth Framework Programme (Food-CT-2003- 506850)...

The debate concerning the choice of crystalloids or colloids for resuscitation of the critically ill child is still unsettled. Moreover, the use of albumin in critically ill patients has been increasingly questioned because of the lack of clear-cut advantages over crystalloids as well as the concern for cost and the very minor risk of infection. Despite several meta-analyses addressing these issues, there is no data that supports the use of albumin unequivocally in any specific disease states. The suggestion that the use of albumin increases mortality in critically ill patients is not supported by data...

PURPOSE: To describe the anesthetic problems in a patient with visceral leishmaniasis undergoing general anesthesia. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 17-yr-old man with visceral leishmaniasis was booked for emergency appendectomy. He received parentral sodium stibogluconate 600 mg per day. The patient was pale, afebrile and had hepatosplenomegaly. Preoperative investigations showed a hemoglobin of 6.2 g.dL(-1), platelet count of 80 x 10(9).L(-1) and serum albumin of 2.1 g.dL(-1)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the dietary prescriptions of nursing home patients who show evidence of malnutrition. DESIGN: A descriptive chart review. SETTING: Four chronic care facilities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. PATIENTS: A total of 336 charts were randomly selected from the four facilities. Analysis was done on the 217 charts that included a recorded serum albumin. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Serum albumin, height, most recent weight, weight recorded 6 months previously, major diagnoses, and current diets were recorded...

Three experimental models of vesico-sigmoidostomy are studied (model-1, end to side V-S plus urethral ligation, model-2, end to end V-S, in "Y of Rous" plus urethral ligation and model-3, vesico-sigmoidoplasty), with aim of reproducing chemical imbalance observed in human subjects with ureterosigmoidostomy. Authors have evaluated clinical biochemical (serum acido-base balance, Cl, Na+, K+, BUN, creatinine, ammonia and albumin), and histologic variables in the first, third and fifth month after operation in 225 rats...

Three groups of patients with suspected potassium depletion were studied. Twenty-nine obese patients were observed before and up to 1 year after an intestinal shunt operation. During the first week after operation they lost almost 3 grams of potassium per day. The percentage potassium loss was much larger than the percentage weight loss. A significant decrease of serum potassium was also noted during the first week after operation. In contrast to the total body potassium, however, the serum potassium remained within normal limits in all patients except two...
