Aliquots (1 g/L) of the interstitial fluid were preincubated at 37 [degrees]C for 15 min with 10 mmol/L EDTA for an inhibition test.
Both glycerol and glutamate interstitial fluid concentrations can be monitored using microdialysis and have been used as clinical metabolic markers in Europe for many years (Ungerstedt & Rostami, 2004).
p] /W is defined as the fraction of the total applied normal load W that is supported by the interstitial fluid when it pressurizes.
If that patient has a 10-minute physiological lag, there's a 30-mg/dL discrepancy between the blood glucose and interstitial fluid glucose.
This technology newly developed by combining Sysmex's micro- invasive tissue fluid extraction technology with Toshiba's optical sensing technology allows glucose levels to be measured using interstitial fluids instead of the blood samples currently required by conventional techniques.
11) Many of these systems measure interstitial fluid glucose levels that correlate with capillary glucose levels, with minimal differences only when there are abrupt changes in serum glucose levels.
Interstitial fluid, which is fluid in the spaces between skin layers, flows into the micropore, and is sampled instead of blood and passed to the same test strip that is used for conventional, finger-stick glucose testing.
To substantiate their claims, the authors, initially using a mouse model of breast cancer, found increased amounts of CPN in tumor interstitial fluid (compared with normal interstitial fluid) but not in the serum of these animals.
Physiologically, since socket donning increases interstitial fluid pressure, we would suspect that much of this exited fluid was blood driven out through the venous vasculature.
However, fluid resuscitation can increase hydrostatic pressure, inducing accumulation of interstitial fluid and worsening of tissue oedema.
In low albumin states, the decreased plasma oncotic pressure disturbs the equilibrium between plasma and interstitial fljuid with the result that there is a decrease in the movement of the interstitial fluid back into the blood at the venular end of the capillaries.
The device consists of a "pill"--about the size of a Tylenol capsule--that gets implanted under the skin and makes contact with the interstitial fluid.
