- Treatment of elephantiasis nostras aims at prevention of recurrent infection and edema.
- Immediate clinical manifestations of acute lung injury include pneumothorax, pulmonary oedema, and air embolism.
- The pathogenesis may involve edema and inflammation secondary to the impacted stone in the cystic duct.
- Patients may develop blepharitis and present with ptosis secondary to edema and inflammation.
- The result is an accumulation of fluid in the tissue - also called oedema.
- This reverses the gradient, causing a decrease in tissue and organ edema and associated morbidity.
- The bandages substitute for the elasticity lost by tissues engorged with edema.
- This is not easy, as too little fluid will cause hypoperfusion whereas too much will lead to oedema that will cause tissue hypoxia.
- Seven children died from illness or injury without oedema, three in the antioxidant supplement group and four in the placebo group.
- Diuretics are essential for the symptomatic management of patients with lung congestion or peripheral oedema from fluid overload.
- Hyponatremia in the presence of edema indicates increased total body sodium and water.
- Fine crackles are heard with pulmonary edema, pneumonia and pulmonary fibrosis.
- But of course cough is a common symptom of pulmonary oedema or coexistent bronchitis, so you should also consider these causes.

- Muscles waste away; oedema and accumulation of fluid in body cavities follows depletion of plasma proteins.

- For example, in a healthy person without oedema, the kidneys deal with surplus fluid in the body by disposing of it in the urine.
- The risk of moderate vision loss caused by diabetic macular edema was reduced by 50 percent.
- In compensated heart failure, symptoms are stable, and many overt features of fluid retention and pulmonary oedema are absent.
- The disposable canister serves as a collection depot for edema fluid that is suctioned from the wound tissue.
