Hypoxia: Any cause leading to low oxygen in blood - low oxygen in the air (altitude), poor breathing (poor ventilation), obstruction in airflow tract (asthma, copd, mechanical, sleep apnea), problems in lungs loosing area of air and blood contact (collapse, pneumonia, bloodclots), bad lungs (emphysema, fibrosis), lung blood vessels (pulmonary hypertension, vasculitis) and chemicals (cyanide, met. ...Read more
No quick fix.: I suggest starting with a therapist. You'll want someone who is comfortable with cognitive behavioral therapy and "exposure therapy". There's not going to be a pill to cure this right away. It's really about talking through your fear of seeing water on maps and coming up with a plan to treat it. Good luck! [regarding the picture - thought i'd spare you a picture of water]. ...Read more

I am in my 1st month ttc & my BBT is all over the map! One day will be 95.1 & the next 97.2 on days 8-9. Should I be concerned?
Suffering skipped beat often at a stretch 5/6 days for last 6 months. Can medicine cure? I'm 68yr. Avg BP 126/72, BPM 64, map 90 and wt. 60.8kgs.
Yes, possibly: If you've been diagnosed with atrial flutter, then your feeling of palpitations is common. But since this pattern is irregular and effects cardiac performance somewhat, as well as having other risks, this needs to be evaluated in depth by your cardiologist in order to assure that you're getting the best and safest therapy. ...Read more
From last 4/5months my diastolic sometimes goes below 65 and somedays I also suffer from drop-beats. My avg. Bp 126/72, bpm64, map 90, body wt. 61kgs.
Pretty good numbers, except for dropped beats. Correlate your device with doctors for accuracy.
Check both arms.
Holter monitor may clarify pulses.
Low diastolic can relate to aortic valve leakage, so having that checked is reasonable.
Some medications will also lower diastolic. ...Read more

In theory, one cell is all that is needed.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

My diastolic sometimes goes down to 63.Is it dangerous? My avg. Bp 126/72, map- 90, bpm-64, and body wt.-61kgs, I am 68 yrs. Old. Suffer drop beats.
Blood pressure: No, the numbers you report seem pretty good, and an occasional diastolic reading in the 60's is not something to be concerned about if you otherwise feel ok. I will take it that you do not have any valvular disease, as aortic regurgitation can sometimes cause particularly low diastolic numbers. ...Read more

Can we use EEG and/or qeeg for infants to map which part of the body an infant is experiencing pain?
Unfortunately no: The test measures electrical activities of the brain and can make diagnosis of seizure etc...But unfortunately it is not for diagnosing pain. Maybe it does have that ability, but we don't understand it and thus don't know how to interpret whether certain brain electrical activities represent pain etc...It would be an awesome/very useful device--i would order one. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Will google maps create more and more people with spatial orientation problems as they never learn to read real maps?
No: The skill set to evaluate google maps is the same as that required to view ordinary paper maps. Spatial orientation issues occur in people with internal CNS wiring issues that lower the ability to interpret directions, etc. Turner's syndrome is a classic for this. ...Read more

Zika?: Did you mean the Zika virus? The only cases thus far in the U.S. were from people traveling to an affected area and then returning. You and your sexual partner should not try to conceive for 8 weeks after returning from such an area. If your partner is male and he becomes infected with Zika, it is recommended that he waits 6 months before trying to father a child. Travel restrictions are best. ...Read more

What clinical significance does having high mean arterial pressure hold? What is max. Map shld reach? &can very high map values be dangerous?
It a calculation:
Map = [ (2 x diastolic)+systolic] / 3
diastole counts twice as much as systole because 2/3 of the cardiac cycle is spent in diastole. An MAP of about 60 is necessary to perfuse coronary arteries, brain, kidneys.
Usual range is 70-110 and MAP goal should not go above 110 in general. ...Read more

Different arteries: Mean arterial pressure is calculated by adding the systolic pressure to twice the diastolic pressure and dividing by 3. Systemic pressure is your normal BP (actually aortic pressure). Example 120/70. Map = 87. Pulmonary artery pressure is the pressure in the pulmonary artery (carries blood from the right ventricle to the lungs). Normal is 35/15. Mean pulm artery pressure = 22. ...Read more

Hi Just had a baby 10 weeks ago I can see normal green veins all over my body. What can I do to hide these there not nice. Look like a road map?
Varicose Veins: Sometimes during or after pregnancy, the veins can become distended due to increase blood volume and hormonal changes that occur. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any non-invasive treatments for them. Depending on size and location, sclerosis of the vessels can be done (scarring them down with chemicals or laser light). Speak with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. ...Read more
