Adult Enterovirus Echo Infection
When cleaning after someone has been ill with enterovirus infection, do we need to disinfect the whole room or just the things they may have touched?
Cleaning: When someone is sick with viral infection, it's a good idea to clean the room totally. That's using a good product like clorox wipes to clean and disinfect the surfaces and wash bedding in hot water. This will decrease the transmission if disease. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ECHO is also known as Echocardiogram. An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
Enterovirus infection last week. No temp since Sunday. Today, little queasy and low grade fever (99.5). Otherwise ok.Same infection? Still contagious?
Should myocarditis be easily detected with a echo or is more comprehensive test needed? And if infection has passed is damage still detectable?
Difficult diagnosis: Myocarditis diagnosis relies mainly on a detailed history ; physical. Echo should detect damage, but the cause of damage may remain unclear. Heart biopsy can rarely be used, but the test is low yield ; the risk of procedure often doesn't outweigh potential benefits. There may be delay in heart damage after myocarditis has passed. In addition heart damage often recovers. ...Read more
Can a sinus infection affect a stress test? Echo perfect and stress test had abnormality? And is there a less invasive procedure than angiogram?
Yes: Typically, there in patients with myocarditis, there are abnormalities on both ECG and echocardiogram. In fact, if both the ECG and the echocardiogram were normal, the likelihood of myocarditis would be very low. Typical ECG findings are st and t wave changes, and perhaps low amplitude qrs complexes. Echocardiographic findings are decrease ventricular function and perhaps pericardial effusion. ...Read more
I had a dilated ascending aorta at 41mm. Last echo showed at 39 mm. Getting better on its own? Could infection have caused original dilation?
I urinate only at early morning 600ml, after that just 150-200 ml during the day.No infections, creatinine ok, echo ok, no edema.Take 2.3l fluids dayly.Drs here in brazil don't know what's wrong. Any ideas?
More water: You are likely not drinking enough water to replace your water loss through perspiration and respiration. Try increasing your water intake and see what happens. I am more concerned over your weakness which may sometimes result from lowering the blood pressure too much. As for the volume of urine/day, if everything ok , i won't lose sleep over it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My brother is 18 years old and sometimes he has pain when he touch his navel, he feels a lump when the touch, bad smell and when the doctor squashed it squeezed yellow liquid .He has made an echo and turned an infection place 8 mm .He has healed from a
Possibly an infected: urachal or pilonidal cyst. Both of these are cured with a simple surgical procedure which cuts out cyst and removes infection. His doctor must be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN the lump is NOT a herniated BOWEL LOOP. Take a picture of the lump, and send me a HealthTap Concierge Message @ goo.gl/tch4sN with the picture attached. ...Read more
Have pots. Today swollen painful abdomen and vibrating feelings. Doc didn't think aorta. Had normal post-viral echo 5 months ago but should I be concerned about heart failure? Or just kidney infection
Unlikely : Unlikely heart failure if recent echo "completely" normal, though sometimes diastolic function is either missed or not appropriately interpreted on echoes. In rare cases, hf presents with isolated abdominal swelling, ascites, though most often with concomitant symptoms of dyspnea wih exertion and lower extremity edema...Unclear about the " vibrating feelings". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
