Fentanyl renal failure

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl renal failure


Avatar f tn Hydromorphone and fentanyl appear to be the least affected by renal dysfunction, and fentanyl has less hemodynamic disturbance (due to lack of histamine release associated with other opioids).39" "NSAIDs and opioids may be used at reduced doses in patients with chronic liver disease without cirrhosis. Patients with cirrhosis have fewer analgesic options.

681148 tn?1437661591 I was hospitalized myself for the first time ever with renal failure back in September. To this day the nephrologist hasn't been able to figure out what the cause of the renal failure was or why the kidneys are only almost back to normal, but won't quite get to normal. I also have Oral Allergy Syndrome, GERD/IBS, Celiac, MCS and asthma and possibly CFS/FMS. I've been reading some information about hursutism and its connection to the cortisol produced by the adrenal glands.
Avatar n tn My cat, Miss Kitty has just died from renal failure. We did not notice any symptoms except weight loss and as she was about 14,, we attributed this to being older. She was still active and eating, until one Friday night when she collapsed. We took her to an excellent vet who gave her aggressive treatment over a period of weeks, including IV fluids, saline,blood supplements, phosphorus blocker, CCRF supplements, KD cat food, and we also gave her Astro Oil.
Avatar n tn Renal failure may be either chronic or acute. Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) is a progressive, irreversible deterioration of kidney function. Because cats hide their illnesses and the very early signs of CRF are subtle, this disease may only be recognized when the patient reaches the 70% deterioration level and more dramatic symptoms are observable. The seemingly sudden onset may appear to be an acute condition but is most often a crisis point of CRF.

1047522 tn?1258145704 Transplant is already listed as a treatment option on the Kidney Tracker. You have removed it from your tracker through customized settings. We'll add all the other ones you've requested to the Kidney Tracker and let you know when they're available.
Avatar m tn Renal anomalies could be responsible for decreased or deranged renal function and may lead to renal failure. One working kidney is enough for normal functions of the body. It would be difficult to comment if your other symptoms could be related. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating nephrologist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn I am so sorry to hear your baby is in renal failure. We lost our baby Sandy Grace (a beautiful yellow lab) to renal kidney failure on February 6. It is so very hard. We took Sandy Grace to a specialist and she told us that she had not heard of any transplants in dogs that had been successful. She said the studies she had done showed that many times they have not made it through surgery, and for others died soon after surgery.
512560 tn?1222560127 Chronic renal failure is a gradual and progressive loss of the ability of the kidneys to excrete wastes, concentrate urine, and conserve electrolytes.Alternative names are Kidney failure - chronic; Renal failure - chronic; Chronic renal insufficiency; CRF; Chronic kidney failure. It most often results from any disease that causes gradual loss of kidney function. It can range from mild dysfunction to severe kidney failure . Progression may continue to end-stage renal disease.
Avatar m tn The EF below 30% is heart failure range and that can cause renal failure. Early complications of cardiac insufficiency include renal vasoconstriction and the development of sodium and water retention, which are hallmarks of the very early stages of congestive heart failure. Heart failure is a physiologically delicate condition in which therapy is designed to block the sodium retention and simultaneously interrupt excessively activated neurohumoral mechanisms.
Avatar f tn We have a puppy diagnosed with early renal failure. He is currently on Hills LD diet. (KD isn't recommended for growing puppies; our vet asked Hills what we should feed and they said LD has reduced protein, easily digestible.) He likes this well enough to eat it, but not well enough to use for training treats. Do any of you know of small, chewy, low protein, low phosphorus treats? Thanks!
963889 tn?1359677334 Renal cortical thinning is usually indicative of chronic renal failure as opposed to acute renal failure. The high white cell count and increased counts in the urine indicate an infection. So, to sum up the results show findings of chronic renal failure with hypoalbuminemia and probably an infection. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Polycystic kidney invovles highblood pressure, aneurysms, and eventually kidney failure. Go see a nephrologist that specializes in the kidney.
Avatar n tn It is possible to have acute renal failure and still have normal-sized kidneys. Renal atrophy may result from chronic renal disease or infection, as well as other conditions such as narrowing of renal arteries or obstruction of urinary tract.
1531001 tn?1292034237 If your Yorkie is in chronic renal failure she will require nursing care at home and may have to have in-hospital fluid therapy every now and then. Several days to up to 10 days of in-hospital fluid therapy and other care is often very helpful for those with chronic renal failure. It is the doggie equivalent of human diuresis. If the creatinine and urea nitrogen levels do not become decrease following the in-hospital fluid therapy the prognosis may be poor.
3093770 tn?1389739126 As of 9/1/2011 the only known risk of NSF is in patients with renal failure in pre and post liver transplant patients. For us pre-transplant patients they measure our creatinine before each MRI to make sure our kidneys are functioning well enough before we receive an MRI with Gadolinium. For us with liver cancer it is critical that out cancer is monitored every 3 months with MRI and contrast as that is the best way to diagnosis hepatocellular carcinoma tumors.
Avatar f tn We were told yesterday that our wonderfully spirited Jack Russell terrier was somehow poisoned and has been diagnosed with acute renal failure. Our Bailey is only 4 years old. The vet kept her overnight, flushing her system in the hopes of lowering her B.U.N. level, which is 91. We were contacted today and told we could bring Bailey home. She still has a catheter in her forearm with some kind of medicine drip that we were told we could take out tomorrow.
Avatar m tn I had a burst period when my BP was as high as 240/138. With meds it has came back down to it's usual high of 160/90 and it lowers ok with meds.

The stresses of all of this are killing me too.

Avatar n tn I have a 16 year old sheltie, Joshie, who was diagnosed with chronic renal failure on Aug. 28th. Was drinking lots of water and urinating a lot. We took him to the vet for intravenous fluids for two day and now I have to force water using a syringe,or give them subcutaneously. Why won't he drink any more. Is there any way I could entice him to drink on his own again.
