You are attached with electrodes (adhesive stickers) to an electrocardiograph (ECG) recorder to monitor your heart rate. For your safety, you are belted onto the tilt table. It is then tilted upright to a 60-80 degree vertical angle for approximately 45 minutes.
612876 tn?1355518095 I like the flair such statements make! I met a woman today while waiting for a blood draw. She was unique in her dress and we easily struck up a conversation. She had the most wonderful cane. It was a natural wood embedded with crystals and had some leather fringe and a crystal handle. She had made it herself and I thought it very unique and decorative as well as functional. I have also seen wheelchairs plastered with stickers. I love the artistic flair!
Avatar n tn He could cut you a little slack as to the 12 week clearing rule by for instance letting you continue TX if you show a two log drop by 12 weeks. Going beyond 12 weeks if you haven't shown that drop has been shown to be a 33 to 1 shot as Galen wrote. These drugs are not harmless and you don't want to do them unless you have a fair chance of success.
Avatar f tn The university of Washington on their site has exactly how the blood has to be drawn and my doctor offered to do this (if your doctor can draw blood and centrifuge it in their office they need a serum separator tube and after they centrifuge they will pour it into the tube provided by the University of Washington) but I went to a medi merge(the had a lab there) and had it done immediately b/c quest in NJ refused to assist me with it.
579258 tn?1250652943 Her white count is down to 30,000 which is well below the 75,000 count threshold we need to maintain for any type of surgery and if it continues to drop will require another transfusion. The greatest concern is her ANC (immunity) count it was down to 175 a normal count is 4,000 and for her above 750 is what we need to maintain. At this level she or anyone is very susceptible to everything and has nothing to fight it off with.
Avatar f tn ). I put only two stickers on my chair and I was happy with that. People do initiate conversations with me by commenting on my stickers. I call my chair my Harley. Lol. Hey, it works for me....
492869 tn?1285022533 I spent the whole summer fainting almost daily (mine was from SVT which caused my blood pressure to drop). I ended up getting a full contact karate helmet (the white soft kinda smushy ones, but mine was still firm enough to keep me from getting injured). I had to do that because I had no diagnosis at the time to warrant my insurance paying for a "real" helmet.
184674 tn?1360864093 Many of you probably know my situation concerning the interaction I have with my oldest son's father, but for those who don't, a very brief re-cap: I was never married to my son's father, and we have a 6½ year old son together. We broke up when he was two years old, after which he moved to CO and I live in AL. He pays very little child support ($147/month) and maintains almost no contact with our son.
392430 tn?1382908381 ) I went to Walgreens and checked my blood pressure this weekend to make sure it wasn't high, and it wasn't. I have not heard back from my doctor about my pre-eclampsia results. So, my guess is that I am fine! Although, I will let you all know for sure once I actually talk to someone from the office. And... our doctor told me to drink 2 tbs. of Cod Liver Oil mixed with a glass of lemonade. Yummmm!
Avatar f tn She can always bring cookies to the nurses or the doctor during her visit, too. They can give her stickers or you can provide something she likes ahead of time for them to give her. If the office isn't too terribly busy, they might be happy to help. You can even drop by with goodies for the nurses once in a while. They'll appreciate it, and your daughter will come to realize they are nice people.
571337 tn?1233261897 I went today to see my Gastro doc. He did a full blood panel, to see if I am malnurished, and liver panel, and if my enzimes are up on my pancreas. He gave me more percocette. Yet I told him I will have to take it every 4 hours, because it is not helping with the pain in pancreas. But, thanks to all for giving me your opinion I always say, "Better to have more input, than none at all!
Avatar f tn If you take them sublingually, they kind of avoid the digestion process and some of the med is absorbed directly into the large blood vessels under the tongue. T3 is very fast acting and should kick in fairly soon. If T3 isn't used promptly, your body neutralizes it. That's why it's best to split the dose since that helps to keep FT3 level more even. However, do keep in mind that although FT3 is the most active form of the thyroid hormones, FT4 can't be ignored, either.
338963 tn?1253664422 The first part was pure blood but with mucous texture sorry if tmi. Then the second time tmi again lol it was greenish like a really nasty loogie and very slimy with the pink tinge in it. Im hoping conner comes soon lol Hey betty does it occasionaly hurt in some spots when baby moves?
877337 tn?1249848050 As I now am aware, that's kinda high, but I remember a nurse telling me that day that at my age I could handle it. I remember pulling off those chest stickers and walked out. If only I had known better, I would have stayed and let them (if they would have) run some thorough tests to see what the problem was, I would probably have saved myself more suffering and feel better today. So, to fast forward to today. I eventually ended up receiving a RAI 131 scan to confirm hyperthyroid.
341190 tn?1295470725 Hi Bp, My daughters bloodtests came back today she is low in iron so needs to take tablets for 6 months, I am awaiting test dates, I did go back to my docs to see if he could give me anything for anxiety but could only offer me anti depressants really dont want to go on these as im not depressed just anxious but all anti anxious tabs cause your blood pressure to drop so for obvious reasons i cant have them, Glad your son has his cast off now must be a relief, keep him out of trees now eh, doctor
1678656 tn?1369237418 But I tried it since the worst thing that would come of it was that it doesn't work... I tested this thing with my blood pressure. Mine always runs a little high; I checked it and it was like 116/98 and with the band it was 112/68! I thought it was this machine at the pharmacy so I tried at the doctor and one at wal-mart. Every time my bp was lower! I have also noticed a big difference in the every day aches and pains that I experience.
Avatar f tn i have had cbc blood work and urine check, all which came back okay. My blood pressure is good and I don't have any actual pain or fever or bleeding, so the docs just look at you like you are crazy! Well, if I wasn't before, I will be soon lol! Happy New year everyone.
177988 tn?1266802499 Virtually all newborns have some degree of jaundice, but it isn't always noticable. It's just billirubin (pigment) in the blood, and just builds up until the baby's liver learns to take over. Try not to continue to stress yourself out over all of this. Even if you do end up having to suppliment with a little formula, it isn't the end of the world. Leah will benefit from WHATEVER amount of breast milk you are able to produce! She's lucky she has a momma that's so concerned! Good luck!
80575 tn?1207135964 I broke down once at the lab when either the tech messed up or I straightened my arm and popped the needle out. I sat there with blood flowing down my arm, crying. That was not me!! It was the meds. No you can't expect to function normally while on tx. You can rely on things changing. I was doing neupogen and at one point my doc upped it to 3x/week. I tried it and wanted to stop so bad, I didn't care about relapsing or anything else. I told my doc and he lowered my dosage.
147426 tn?1317269232 Various non-specific positive blood tests. Please note that over time, my symptoms changed and spread. As such I don't think my condition is neurological. I have been through the work up and share a lot of common symptoms and experiences with the forum. So while my path is diverging, I'm still here for support and to share anything I may learn that I may be able to pass on to other Limbo Landers.
328927 tn?1227765440 Well, yesterday I was looking all day for Lexima's news and now I am looking for yours. I am proctering two midterms back to back but had to log in and check! I have high hopes you are our next success story!
508520 tn?1210828953 Oh my god, where do I start. Ladies, I am so frustrated with my lady parts right now. I am a 23-year-old female who has been in and out of Urgent Care for over a year now for what I believe to be the same problem. **I know this is long, but please hear me out. I really need some help! I don't know where else to turn. Can anyone give me some advice? Thank you** For starters, I've been in the same monogamous relationship with my boyfriend for 3 years and we've both been faithful.
Avatar n tn We have tried treasure box, candy, stickers, even telling him we'll take him somewhere special- NOTHING WORKS! He now screams "I DON'T WANT TO POOP!" He gets plenty of fiber b/c he drinks the soy milk with added fiber and I have tried Milk of Magnesia but that just leads to an all day POOP FEST! I do not know what to do. Suppositories don't work b/c we could not hold him down long enough to get it in. Does anyone have suggestions!
7622073 tn?1409088858 Darbie is doing great!! Complete turn around compared to her suffering in June. She has her next blood work Sept 7, so the results should be interesting. Regardless of what those numbers might be, I hope to continue her daily regimen. Her overall mood and well being is excellent. Is that your crazy tablet misbehaving again?! ....:) Have a lovely day with your girls!
Avatar n tn my six year old, out of the blue, started peeing on himself. i don't understand why and i need help. i took him to the doctor and had his urine tested. it had a little blood and protein in it but she said "nothing to worry about" the test results came back neg. when they sent it to the lab. What can i do? some days he has to change at least four times. Today i tried punishment by no tv time and he went outside to play and came back in wet. HELP! it's been going on for about 3 months.
961574 tn?1520651703 That is AWESOME that you got pregnant with twins! Congratulations! I'm due June 7, but will probably be induced a few days before then, since I'm on blood thinning medication. At least that's what they did last time when I had my daughter. This time's it's a boy! Found out early at my 15 week appointment. I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow.
