The precise cause of the anaemia that is commonly associated with severe pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) has not been elucidated. The role of erythropoietin (Epo), the central hormone regulating red cell formation, still awaits clarification. We therefore determined serum Epo levels in patients with PTB; group 1, haemoglobin less than 110 g/L, group 2,(More)
Decreased production of erythropoietin (Epo) as a result of reduced renal mass is considered the main factor underlying the anaemia that is invariably associated with chronic renal failure (CRF). Other mechanisms such as accumulation of inhibitors of Epo also contribute. In this study we show that supernatant from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)(More)
Background:-Endotracheal suction is a recurrent and essential procedure in patients with mechanical ventilation. Suction airway leads to mucosal stimulation and mucus production. Cardiovascular disorder and sever hypoxia are significant complications of suction. Therefore, selecting the least dangerous way of endotracheal tube suction can reduce severe(More)
