transudate

 [tran´su-dāt]
a fluid substance that has passed through a membrane or has been extruded from a tissue; in contrast to an exudate, a transudate is characterized by high fluidity and a low content of protein, cells, or solid matter derived from cells.

tran·su·date

(tranz'yū-dāt),
Any fluid (solvent and solute) that has passed through a presumably normal membrane, such as the capillary wall, as a result of imbalanced hydrostatic and osmotic forces; characteristically low in protein unless there has been secondary concentration. Compare: exudate.
Synonym(s): transudation (2)
[trans- + L. sudo, pp. -atus, to sweat]

transudate

/tran·su·date/ (tran´su-dāt) a fluid substance that has passed through a membrane or has been extruded from a tissue; in contrast to an exudate, it is of high fluidity and has a low content of protein, cells, or solid materials derived from cells.

transudate

(trăn-so͞o′dāt′, -syo͞o′-, trăn′so͝o-dāt′, -syo͝o-) also

transudation

(trăn′so͝o-dā′shən, -syo͝o-)
n.
1. A product of the process of transuding.
2. A substance that transudes.

transudate

[trans′yədāt]
Etymology: L, trans + sudare, to sweat
a fluid passed through a membrane or squeezed through a tissue or into the space between the cells of a tissue. It is thin and watery and contains few blood cells or other large proteins. See also edema.

tran·su·date

(tran'sū-dāt)
Any fluid (solvent and solute) that has passed through a presumably normal membrane, such as the capillary wall, as a result of unbalanced hydrostatic and osmotic forces; characteristically low in protein unless there has been secondary concentration.
Compare: exudate

transudate

1. A fluid that has passed through a membrane.
2. A collection of fluid resulting from increased capillary pressure in capillary beds or decreased osmosis from reduced blood protein.

transudate

any substance that passes through a membrane, especially through the wall of a capillary

Transudate

The type of pleural effusion seen with heart failure or other disorders of the circulation. It features clear fluid containing few cells and little protein.
Mentioned in: Pleural Effusion

transudate

fluid that has passed through a normal membrane as a result of imbalanced hydrostatic/onchotic (osmotic) pressures, e.g. process of oedema formation as part of acute inflammation (inflammatory exudate accumulates as net result of onchotic pressure exerted by plasma proteins that have escaped from local vessels into surrounding tissue spaces)

tran·su·date

(tran'sū-dāt)
Any fluid (solvent and solute) that has passed through a presumably normal membrane, such as the capillary wall, as a result of imbalanced hydrostatic and osmotic forces.

transudate (tran´soodāt),

n any fluid substance that has passed through a membrane, possibly associated with inflammation. It is low in proteins and colloids and has a low specific gravity.

transudate

a fluid substance that has passed through a membrane or has been extruded from a tissue; in contrast to an exudate, a transudate is characterized by high fluidity and a low content of protein, cells or solid matter derived from cells.

modified transudate
one with additional protein and/or cells. It may be a transitional stage, progressing to an exudate.

A basic difference is that transudates, in general, reflect a systemic perturbation, whereas exudates usually signify underlying local (pleuropulmonary) disease.
This case suggests that Light criteria (12) for the diagnosis of exudative pleural fluid will correctly differentiate between exudates and transudates, thus aiding the physician in the diagnosis.
These new adapted formulas classify an effusion as transudate if one or more of the following are present:
An effusion is determined to be a transudate or an exudate using several visual and chemical findings (Table 1).
If the pressure difference continues to increase, a transudate effusion begins to leak into the middle ear cavity.
A transudate develops when fluid from the pulmonary capillaries moves into the pleural space or when systemic factors that influence the formation and absorption of pleural fluid are altered.
Pleural fluid will have a high glucose concentration and low protein consistent with transudate.
The majority of patients develop a right-sided pleural effusion that tends to be a transudate and generally resolves within a few days.
