How Does Lasik Build Body Homeostasis

Good Essays
By taking Lasix, it is categorized as diuretic. The medication works by elevating the amount of water and salt in the blood which removes by the kidney. The adrenals are two small glands which sits on the top of the kidneys secrete important hormone, aldosterone. Aldosterone regulates the water level, but the water is extremely lost by taking Lasik; therefore, it cannot help body to recover hydrate. Lasik caused the decrease in blood volume causing dehydration. The blood pressure is affected due to the changes in blood volume within the cardiovascular system. The severe dehydration causes less blood for the heart to pump, thereby reducing cardiac output and blood pressure. Cardiac output is made up of two components, heart rate and stroke volume. Therefore, decreasing in cardiac output also causes the decreasing in the heart rate and also the stoke volume. Moreover, the dehydration …show more content…
Moreover, it causes the kidney to release more water in urine. Nausea, dizziness and lose consciousness are caused by consuming alcohol.
The high water temperatures can elevate the body temperature of the internal organs beyond safe limits. To maintain the body homeostasis, the thermoregulation mechanism which controlled by the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland could join in to lower the body temperature by opening the sweat glands or increasing the heat exchange. The opening of the sweat gland causes the water to lose more.
In conclusion, Mr. Underhill weighted more than Mrs. Underhill, so the amount of alcohol which was consumed by him did not have much effect on him. The first factor which caused his death was taking his medication, Lasix, which caused him to dehydrate before got into the hot tub. Moreover, the consuming of alcohol can somehow increase the side effect of. The second factor was the hot temperature of the hot tub which could cause him to more dehydrate, fainting or loses

    As you can see from Table 1, we even had one of our daphnia specimens die from the heart rate slowing down too much, most likely. It was expected that caffeine would raise the heart rate even more than it did. Our results indicate that the heart rate only went up a very small margin of 2%. This reason was not significantly higher than its base rate could be that the daphnia was stressed from already having other chemicals given to it. It also could have been stressed from the beginning due to being squished by the petri dish cover and this would have given us a higher baseline heart rate to begin…

    The glucose level rises and your body tries to get rid of the excess sugar by passing through your urine. At first, you will be urinating often. It then turns into feeling the urge to go, but with dark urine and you become extremely thirsty. If this is left untreated you could become severely dehydrated, go into a coma and even death. This coma is called HHNC, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic nonketotic…

    b. Describe how this situation can be corrected. A. Mr. Secord may be experiencing the following symptoms due to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. According to (Gould &Dyer,2011,p.126) in ketoacidosis the body shift from its normal fed metabolism ( using carbohydrates for fuel) to a fasting state (using fat for fuel), the resulting increase in blood sugar occurs. The authors also state that as blood sugar levels rise, the kidney is unable to retain the extra sugar, which is dumped into the urine, thereby increasing urination and causing dehydration.…

    Insulin resistance can cause extremely detrimental effects on cardiac contractility by decreasing the body’s ability to supply ATP. Once again, this can lead to cardiac remodeling and heart failure. This heart failure will lead to the activation of RAAS which will perpetuate the cyclical problem. Between the mechanical and the neurohumoral issues seen with systolic ventricular dysfunction, one can see how each system and mechanism feeds the other. Hypertension from an unhealthy life style can cause a small amount of damage to the left ventricle.…

    Polydipsia and polyuria goes together because elevated blood sugars will cause your kidney to filter out the sugar in the bloodstream. Sugar will be removed through frequent urination (polydipsia). Since water is also exreted everytime you pass out urine, you will feel thirsty most of the time and if your fluids will not be replenished, you will ultimately suffer from…

    768). Carvedilol is a beta blocker. Beta blockers block beta 1 and beta 2 receptor sites (Kee, Hayes, & McCuistion, 2015, p.608). The effects of the sympathetic nervous system are decreased because the action of epinephrine and norepinephrine are blocked thus causing decreased heart rate and blood pressure (Kee, et al., 2015, p.608). If heart failure is left untreated the chambers of the heart dilate because of the blood left in the chamber after diastole (Lewis, et al., 2014, p. 768).…

    The heart needs to pump harder to makeup for the decrease of oxygen. This response results in a lack of oxygen binding to hemoglobin in the blood because red blood cells have a high affinity for binding to oxygen. Less oxygen to enter other cells will cause a decrease in energy leading to the symptoms that both Mark and Emily are experiencing. 2,3-DPG helps decrease the affinity of red blood cells with oxygen. Therefore, oxygen is able to distribute more throughout the body.…

    If the process continues for a long period of time, it can throw off the pH of the blood and cause the blood to become very acidic (O’keefe). Another cause of metabolic acidosis is lactic acid buildup due to anaerobic respiration. Dysfunctional kidneys can also cause metabolic acidosis as they are unable to filter out acid from the blood when fluids are excreted. Lastly hyperchloremic acidosis can also cause high levels of acid in the blood as problems within the body cause a lack of bicarbonate production. Bicarbonate therapy may be used to treat metabolic acidosis because bicarbonate can serve as a buffer in the blood system.…

    Excessive loss of acid from the blood, low carbon dioxide levels, and high bicarbonate levels in the blood are all causes of metabolic alkalosis. The compensatory mechanism is when the respiratory system decreases ventilation which decreases the rate at which CO2 (carbon dioxide) is expelled out of the body. This response is not usually enough to fully return the blood pH to 7.4. Elevation in PCO2 is accomplished by lowering alveolar ventilation and regulate oxygen levels. The development of alkalemia is sensed by central (medullary neurons) and peripheral chemoreceptors (carotid and aortic bodies), resulting in a reduction in the rate of ventilation and a reduction in tidal volume and this increases the pCO2 elevations.…
