These include hemodilution, cardiac cachexia, biventricular heart failure, reduced colloid osmotic pressure causing pulmonary edema, and reduced tolerability and use of optimal medical therapy, said Dr.
Glomerular capillary colloid osmotic pressure ([[PI].
11] The transcapillary fluid migration is governed by capillary hydrostatic pressure and interstitial tissue colloid osmotic pressure, which tend to favor movement of water out of the capillary, whereas plasma colloid osmotic pressure and interstitial tissue hydrostatic pressure tend to favor movement of water into the capillary.
Starling's forces The hydrostatic pressures that determine whether fluid moves out of the blood into the interstitium or the opposite direction: capillary pressure, interstitial fluid pressure, plasma colloid osmotic pressure and interstitial colloid osmotic pressure.
The mechanisms of reducing the IOP by exercise were very complicated and believed to be associated with the lower concentration of norepinephrine, the rising of colloid osmotic pressure, the co-action of nitric oxide and endothelin after exercise, and also related to the gene polymorphism of [beta]2-adrenergic receptor.
Medical teaching on oedema usually focuses on Starling's equilibrium, ascribing much significance to decreased plasma colloid osmotic pressure in oedema formation.
