Dilated left heart and reduced lv function. Generalized lv hypokinesia diastolic dysfunction, what to do?
LV dz: See a cardiologist for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
Causes of impaired left ventricle relaxation. Echo c/w decreased diastolic function.28yo f. 108 lbs. Blood pressure is 90s/60s. Eject frac. 62%.
Non sustained VT<30sec more concern in patients with Left Ventricular Impaired function compared to Normal LV function normal heart ejection fraction?
Yes, but concern: NS Ventricular tachycardia has a higher degree of concern in patients with impaired ejection fraction. However, the larger concern is that having runs of nonsustained VT are not particularly common in the normal population, so even in patients with normal EF, would still be concerned about ischemic heart disease in patients who are having runs of NS VT. ...Read more
Abnormal septal motion in ventricle, EF 60-65% small LA and LV normal in thickness gd systolic function and sinus tachy 120bpm pulmonary Hypertension?
Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
Stress Echo-What does decreased left ventricular volume and hyperdynamic left ventricular systolic function mean?
Boyfriend is in congestive heart failure, heart functioning at 5%, pumping fluid off organs now, too weak to survive heart attack/stroke. Prognosis?
Yes: Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include hypoglycemia, dehydration, weight loss, and disorientation. Symptoms may also include weakness, tiredness, dizziness, low blood pressure that falls further when standing (orthostatic hypotension), cardiovascular collapse (failure), muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc... Heart rate can increase if there is dehydration or low blood pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
BP 117/72, LBBB, slight elevated EDP 20,EF 50-55, heart function fine. Arteries large, clear. Exercise limited at times.Diseased or dysfunction?cure?
Diastolic: It sounds like you have diastolic dysfunction. You should discuss with your cardiolologist to get an explanation of what is possible in diagnosis and therapy. ...Read more
Does a right atrium dilated, RV pressure of 25-30 mHg, IVC dynamics 5-10 mmHg subjective possibly of pulmonary hypertension or heart failure?
If accurate, only: mildly ?ed. RA ~10 mmHg, RV systolic ~25 mmg Hg generally ~optimally healthy; similar to the values stated. Thus RA enlargement likely: mismeasurement (common, not rare; study image data yourself), marked tricuspid regurgitation, congenital variant, atrial muscle problem [eg advanced arterial disease in RA arteries; (lumens too small to see by angiography) producing RA ischemia/fibrosis], etc. ...Read more
Different arrythmias: They come from different chamber ( upper vs lower) . Changes in BP and cardiac output depend on cardiac function , heart rate and and timing. Atrial fibrilation may decrease cardiac output about 15%. In ventricular tachycardia, BP and co will decrease more if it is long enough to become unstable. ...Read more
Yes: A highly irregular pulse can make BP measurements more difficult, but the examiner can help to compensate for that by allowing the pressure from the instrument to drop more slowly than usual. ...Read more
ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?
MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more
Small left sided heart with abnormal septal motion in ventricle EF 60-65% heart is normal including thickness. Possible pulmonary hypertension cause?
MRI: If you have severe pulmonary hypertension, you may have Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. This is potentially a serious diagnosis. Intracardiac and intrapulmonary shunting must be ruled out. A cardiac MRI and nuclear shunt test can make this determination. These tests are likely only available at a major referral center - London. Good luck. ...Read more
30 f resting heart 150bpm according to heart monitor excellent health heart rate drop to 80 when asleep is that normal? Full blood normal.
Hello, is normal overall heart ejection fraction 65% (according the measuring from heart echo device)?
Yes: Completely, 100% normal!Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes, while it's : Great that you don't have the probs u mention, there is more to heart dz than just that. Healthy eating & wt., regular exercise are important even if your bp, choles, etc are normal. More advance testing for other risk factors beyond the standard lipid panel & fasting sugar level is available in some places, & we're still learning about other risk factors. Good u r being prevention-minded! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
