hyperchloremia

 [hi″per-klo-re´me-ah]
excess of chlorides in the blood; this occurs as a result of fluid deficit for which the kidney seeks to compensate by reabsorbing large amounts of water and the chloride dissolved in it. The signs and symptoms of hyperchloremia are the same as those of acidosis. adj., adj hyperchlore´mic.

Conclusion: Hyperchloremia and other electrolyte abnormalities, cerebral edema and AKI are the most common complications of severe DKA.
Hyponatremia may be accompanied by hyperchloremia, which can be absolute or relative to the plasma sodium ([Na.sup.+]) concentration (CONSTABLE et al., 2001; SMITH, 2009; SMITH & BERCHTOLD, 2014).
(2) Results of the plasma biochemical panel showed high concentrations of uric acid (20.7 mg/dL; reference interval, 2.5-11 mg/dL), (2) aspartate aminotransferase (450 U/L; reference interval, 100-300 U/L), (2) and creatine kinase (8887 U/L; reference interval, 100-300 U/L) (2) and mild hyperchloremia (122 mmol/L; reference interval, 103-115 mmol/L).
In hemodialysis patients, hyperchloremia and unmeasured anions have been found to have a similar acidifying effect, accounting for almost 90% of the metabolic acidosis cases [81].
A greater proportion of non-diabetics had hyperchloremia, as well as higher serum sodium and a tendency towards lower urinary citrate levels (Table 2).
Additionally hypokalemia (2.7 mmol/L), hyperchloremia (114 mmol/L), respiratory acidosis (pH:7.22), C[O.sub.2] retention (pC[O.sub.2]: 58.1 mmHg) were detected.
BOSTON -- Hyperchloremia in patients with Clostridium difficile infections is an indicator of disease severity and a risk factor for death within 30 days, according to Dr.
Other serum index changes included marked hyperchloremia and hyperproteinemia.
Finally, CRRT can timely correct solute abnormalities (such as hyperchloremia, and hypernatremia caused by various factors).
Normal level of chloride (98- 106 mmol/L) was found in 22 patients (20%), hypochloremia (<98mmol/L) was observed in 5 (4.5%) and hyperchloremia (> 106mmol/L) in 83 (75.45 %) patients.
