2 Hemodynamic disturbance DR. USHA.M

3 HEMODYNAMICS Literally means “Blood movement” is the study of blood flow.

4 Hemodynamic disturbance 1. Edema 2. Hyperemia & congestion 3. Hemorrhage 4. Thrombosis 5. Infarction 6. Shock

5 Edema Normal body water distribution:- Two compartments: 1. Intracellular – comprising of two- thirds of total body fluid. 2. Extracellular – comprising of one- third of total body fluid. 1. Interstitial compartment- 75% 2. Intra vascular compartment – 25%

6 Normal fluid exchange There are two ends for a capillary 1. Arteriolar end 2. Venous end The pressure is high in the arteriolar end then the venous end.Normally the fluid moves out from the vessel in arteriolar end into interstitial tissue. From interstitial tissue same fluid moves back into vessel at venous end.The small amount of fluid which is left in interstitial space is cleared by lymphatics.


8 Starling forces


10 Normal fluid pressures 1. Osmotic pressure Is exerted by the chemical constituents of the body fluids Eg. Electrolytes – crystalloid osmotic pressure proteins (albumin)- oncotic osmotic pressure. 2. Hydrostatic pressure Pressure within the blood vessel.

11 Edema Is accumulation of excessive fluid in the interstitial spaces.

12 Classification of edema according to distribution of fluid 1. Localized edema involving one organ or part of the body. eg-pleural effusion,ascitis,pericardial effusion,etc. 2. Generalized edema Involving the entire body- ANSARCA

13 Pathogenesis of edema:- 1. Increased hydrostatic pressure 2. Increased permeability of the vessel wall 3. Decreased oncotic pressure 4. Sodium retention in the kidneys 5. Obstruction of lymph flow

14 1. Hydrostatic edema Results from increased intra vascular pressure (hydrostatic pressure).

15 Causes :- 1. Impaired venous return congestive cardiac failure constrictive pericarditis, ascitis (liver disease) 2. Venous obstruction thrombi, tumor 3. Arteriolar dilatation heat, inflammation

16 2. Increased vascular permeability Commonest cause is inflammation.Release of inflammatory mediators like histamine, bradykinin, PAF & others leads to increased permeability. Other causes: Injury,

17 3.Decreased plasma oncotic pressure 1.Decresed synthesis in the liver – end stage liver disease. 2.Incresed loss in urine(nephrotic syndrome) or stool (protein losing enteropathy) 3.Inadequte intake-kwashiokar


19 Lymphatic obstruction Elephantiasis Edema of the arm following surgical resection of axillary lymph nodes Edema of hand following post irradiation fibrosis.

23 Renal edema Causes:- 1. Nephorotic syndrome 2. Glomerulonephritis 3. Acute tubular injury

24 Nephorotic edema Heavy proteinuria hypoproteinemia Activation of renin decreased plasma Angiotensin oncotic pressure Mechanism Retention of Na &water edema

25 Nephritic edema Glomerulonephritis glomerular lesion I decreased filtration followed by increased absoption of Na & water by tubules Na & water retention edema

26 Acute tubular injury Toxins, drugs ATN Fails to excrete Na & water edema

27 Cardiac edema congestive cardiac failure ↓ cardiac output ↑ central venous renal hypoperfusion Pressure activation of renin angiotensin ↑ capillary hydrostatic aldosterone mechanism pressure Na & water retention edema

28 Pulmonary edema causes :- 1. Left heart failure 2. ARDS 3. Shock 4. Infections - pneumonia

29 left ventricular failure ↑ hydroastatic pressure ↑ pressure in pulmonary veins ↑ pressure in pulmonary capillaries interstitial edema pressure on alveolar wall &breaks alveolar linning alveolar edema

30 Hepatic Oedema hepatic pathology (e.g. cirrhosis) ↓ obstruction of portal venous system ↓ increased hydrostatic pressure & ↓ albumin synthesis d.t. hepatocyte damge ↓ hypoproteinaemia ↓ transudate oedema (ascitis).

31 Ascites

32 Cerebral edema Causes:- 1. Infection - encephalitis,meningitis 2. Brain infarct, hemorrhage 3. Trauma 4. Tumors

33 Localised Oedema: acute inflammatory oedema - ↑ vascular permeability  exudate - ↑ hydrostatic pressure of capillaries  hyperaemia - ↑ osmotic pressure of interstitial fluid - ↑ fluidity of ground substance allergic (hypersensitivity) oedema -histamine release  ↑ vascular permeability  exudate (e.g. allergic rhinitis)

34 Pitting & non pitting edema is clinical terms for subcutaneous edema of leg.

35 Pitting Oedema



38 Clinical Features of Oedema Considerable quantities must accumulate before clinically apparent (oedema can be assessed by weighing the patient approx. 5 litres) Generalised Cardiac Oedema -gravitational distribution -pitting oedema  holds depression for a few minutes Renal Oedema -fluid retention -generally distributed in C.T.  puffy face/eyelids Serous Cavities -e.g. hydrothorax/ascites Brain Oedema -swollen; narrow sulci & flattened gyri Pulmonary Oedema -exudate -prone to infection  e.g. bronchopneumonia -rales


40 Hemorrhage Indicates extravasation of blood due to rupture of vessel.

41 Classification based on origin 1. Cardiac- penetrating wound rupture of ventricles in MI 2. Arterial – trauma rupture of aneurysm 3. Capillary – trauma, surgery 4. Venous – trauma, surgery

42 Petechiae, Pupura, Ecchymoses Refers to the hemorrhage into the skin & mucosae. Petechiae- pinpoint hemorrhage ( < 1mm) Purpura- 1mm- 1cm in diameter Echymoses- >1cm

43 Petechiae

44 Purpura

45 Ecchymosis

46 Hematoma Is grossly visible accumulation of extravasted blood in tissue. First it is red, then as the blood is deoxygenated it becomes dusky & bluish red.

47 Body cavity hemorrhage Hemothorax – accumulation of blood in pleural cavity Hemopericardium – in pericardial cavity Hemoperitonium – in peritonial cavity Hemoarthrosis – in intra – articular space Hematocephalus – in ventricles of brain

48 Hematuria Is appearance of blood in urine. 1. Microscopic – detectable by microscopic examination of urine. 2. Macroscopic – visible to naked eye Hematuria signifies disease of kidney or urinary tract

49 Hematemesis Is vomiting of blood. Sign of esophageal & gastric hemorrhage like rupture of esophageal varices & peptic ulcer bleeding.

50 Hematochezia Bleeding through rectem. Sign of diseases in large intestine.

51 Melena Black colored blood in stools. Indicates bleeding in upper GIT. Blood is partialy digested by HCLof gastric juice & transformed into a black pigment called hematein.This pigmentis not digested in the intestines & is passed in the feces.

52 Epistaxis & Hemoptysis Epistaxis is bleeding from the nose. Hemoptysis is bleeding from lungs.

53 Menorrhagia & Metrorrahagia Menorrhagia is heavy menstrual bleeding. Metrorrhagia occurs at any time & is not related to menstrual cycle.

54 Effects of Hemorrhage Site of hemorrhage –b–brain, pericardium, pleural spac Rate of blood loss –a–acute loss of > 20% of blood volume may cause hypotension or hypovolemic shock hemoglobin concentration not altered –n–non-acute volume loss compensated by shift of fluid from extravascular to intravascular compartment hemoglobin concentration decreased

55 HYPEREMIA & CONGESTION Is increase in volume of blood in a particular tissue. Hyperemia is an “active process”, the increased blood influx results from arteriolar dilatation. Congestion, also known as “passive hyperemia”, results due to stagnation of blood because of venous obstruction.

59 Examples:- Hyperemia:- 1. Inflammation 2. Blushing – adrenergic stimulation 3. Exercise – incresed blood flow to the muscle. Congestion:- Obstruction of veins due to thrombi or backward pressure due to heart failure.

60 Color of hyperemic & congested tissue:- Hyperemic tissue contains increased amounts of oxygenated blood & therefore the tissue appears bright red. Congested tissue contains increased amounts of deoxygenated blood & appears blue. Hyperemic tissue is warm, while congested blood is cold & clammy.

61 Chronic venous congestion (CVC):- In CVC there is long standing there is accumulation of deoxygenated blood & hence there is damage to the tissue.

62 Mechanism heart failure left heart failure right heart failure Pressure into pressure into the Pulmonary vein systemic venous system CVC LUNGS CVC LIVER SPLEEN KIDNEY

63 CVC Lung Causes:- Left heart failure Gross :- The lungs are heavy. Lungs appear brown- BROWN INDURATION OF LUNGS.

64 CVC Lungs Micro:- Rupture of congested vessel results in edema & hemorrhage. Lysis of RBC’s releases hemosiderin pigment which is taken up by macrophages – HEART FAILURE CELLS.



67 CVC Liver Causes:- 1. Right heart failure 2. Occlusion of inferior vena cava or portal vein. GROSS APPEARANCE:- NUTMEG APPEARANCE – Alternate areas of red & yellow.

68 CVC Liver Micro:- Periportal zone midzonal Centrilobular

69 CVC Liver (MICRO) Blood fills up the central vein & sinusoids around it. Followed by centrilobular hepatocytes necrosis. In the long standing cases the necrotic area is replaced by fibrous tissue. The areas with blood appears red & areas with fibrosis appears whitish yellow- NUTMEG APPEARANCE.




73 CVC Spleen Causes:- 1. Right heart failure 2. Portal hypertension GROSS:- Spleen is enlarged & congested.

74 CVC Spleen (micro) Red pulp appears congested. GAMMA GANDY BODIES OR SIDEROFIBROTIC NODULES:- Deposits of hemosiderin & calcium salts on fibrous tissue.

75 Gamma gandy bodies

76 CVC Kidney Cause:- 1. Right heart failure 2. Obstruction of renal vein Gross:- Kidney is congested.

77 CVC Kidney (micro) Glomeruli – shows mesangial proliferation. Tubules – shows degenerative changes (cloudy swelling).
