Dehydration | Body-fluid Balance and Drinking Habits in Patients With Retinal Vascular Occlusion
Dehydration research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
The purpose of this study is to examine the body-fluid balance in patients with retinal vascular occlusion and the influence of drinking habits and hemodilution on the degree of body hydration.
Who is eligible to participate?
Inclusion Criteria: - informed consent - age over 18 years Exclusion Criteria: - age under 18 years - hypertensive urgency - myocardial infarction < 4 weeks ago, chest pain - heart rhythm disorders, high degree valvular defects - pacemaker, defibrillator - peripheral arterial occlusive disease - end stage renal disease - acute hepatitis, chronic inflammatory intestinal disease - pregnancy
Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?
Retinal Vascular Occlusion
Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.
Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
