What are the odds of having another baby with hypoplasia right chamber again?

What are the odds of having another baby with hypoplasia right chamber again?

If you've had a previous child with any form of chd the risk doubles. Discussion of this and any other issue with a genetic counselor is worth doing. There can be other factors from either side of the family that may come into play with any pregnancy. ...Read more

What's the difference between incomplete double (3 chamber heart) vs. A complete double (4 chamber heart)?

What's the difference between incomplete double (3 chamber heart) vs. A complete double (4 chamber heart)?

Heart: Normally your heart has 4 chambers or compartments-two atria and two ventricles. If you have a 3 chamber heart that usually means that there is an opening between the two chambers, either the atria or ventricle, making the heart only 3 chambers and there is also a mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Depending on the size, location and severity surgery may be needed. ...Read more

Is it normal for unborn babies to have an opening in the upper chamber of the heart? Is it something I should worry about?

Is it normal for unborn babies to have an opening in the upper chamber of the heart? Is it something I should worry about?

Upper Chamber open.: There are 2 natural openings in unborn babies. A patent ductus arteriosus (between Pulm Artery and Aorta) and a Patent Foramen Ovale (between the Left and Right atria). The PFO is the one you refer. It is natural and closes in the majority of babies shortly after birth. Other PFOs stay open and may need to be closed later, although still uncommon. ...Read more

What is thachy_brady syndrome? Is it the cause of pacemaker implantation by the kind of pacemaker used? Single or dual chamber. Thank you

What is thachy_brady syndrome? Is it the cause of pacemaker implantation by the kind of pacemaker used? Single or dual chamber. Thank you

Fast and slow!: Tachy-brady means sometimes the heart goes too fast and other times too slow. We need a pacemaker to prevent the slow beats so we can more safely give medication to control the fast beats. The type of pacemaker depends on what type of rhythms are involved. Usually it's dual chamber unless someone is in atrial fibrillation all the time. ...Read more

How do you use the pocket chamber spacer for an asthma inhaler?

How do you use the pocket chamber spacer for an asthma inhaler?

My method: The pocket chamber spacer has a lot going for it - small size, smaller price. Like all modern inhaler devices it has a one-way valve so your exhaled breath does not return to the holding chamber. (1) activate inhaler (2) begin inhaling within 1 second (3) inhale slowly to a count of 5 (1, one thousand, 2...) (4) hold breath to count of 10 (5) exhale (6) wait 30 seconds (7) repeat with 2nd dose. ...Read more
