What is the meaning of grade 1 left ventricular impairment?

What is the meaning of grade 1 left ventricular impairment?

Diastolic failure: The mildest form is called an "abnormal relaxation pattern", or grade i diastolic dysfunction. On the mitral inflow doppler echocardiogram, there is reversal of the normal e/a ratio. This pattern may develop normally with age in some patients, and many grade i patients will not have any clinical signs or symptoms of heart failure. ...Read more

Left ventricular cavityy size is mildly enlarged, should I be concerned?

Left ventricular cavityy size is mildly enlarged, should I be concerned?

More info needed: That depends on many additional pieces of information, such as your body size, clinical history, other structural circumstances of the heart, past medical history, function of the heart. If you are aware that you lv cavity size is mildly enlarged, you have had cardiac imaging; i recommend discussing this with your cardiologist for an accurate answer. ...Read more

What causes ventricular irrabitlity?

What causes ventricular irrabitlity?

Ventricular irritab: Assuming you are referring to pvc's or premature ventricular contractions - besides myocardial ischemia the most common cause i see is caffeine ingestion - followed by stimulant ingestion ie pseudofed. Cocaine and other illicit drugs as well as add drugs can cause irritability as well. Elimination of these will generally solve the problem if not its time to see a cardiologist. ...Read more

What would cause ventricular irrability?

What would cause ventricular irrability?

Cellular level: Irritability refers to enhanced ability of the heart cells to generate an electrical impulse (known as action potential). This happens when a substance referred to as cyclic amp increases in the heart cell causing increased entry of calcium into the cell. With increased calcium, the heart cell both fire impulses rapidly as well as contract vigorously. I will go over some of the causes next. ...Read more

How do you assess left ventricular function?

How do you assess left ventricular function?

Echocardiogram: This is most commonly done with an echocardiogram, an ultrasound of the heart. It is also assessed when dye is injected into the heart at the time of a cardiac catheterization or by the injection of radioactive substances into the heart, which is commonly done as part of a stress test. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of ventricular foramen ovale problems?

What are the symptoms of ventricular foramen ovale problems?

Foramen Ovale: A foramen ovale (pfo) is a small hole between the two upper chambers of the heart. It exists as part of the "fetal circulation, " when babies are inside, lungs are full of amniotic fluid. The pfo allows oxygenated blood returning from the placenta to cross into the left atrium. Pfos usually close, however if they do not there is a very small risk for a stroke or tia. Most people have no symptoms. ...Read more

What does it mean to have accelerated ventricular av conduction?

Abnormal heart rhyth: It means that the heart is not beating in sinus rhythm. The normal conduction is not present. The person is likely being seen by a cardiologist who will decide how best to treat. ...Read more

What is the meaning of a Well preserved left ventricular function.. Many thanks..

What is the meaning of a Well preserved left ventricular function.. Many thanks..

Ejection fraction: The left ventricle exists to pump blood throughout the body. During each heartbeat, the ventricle pumps a certain fraction of the blood it receives. A well preserved function means that the ventricle is maintaining its ability to pump blood efficiently throughout the cardiovascular system. During heart failure, the ventricle typically loses this ability. ...Read more

From where I will get detailed information of e.C.G. Changes in left ventricular failure?

From where I will get detailed information of e.C.G. Changes in left ventricular failure?

No where : Lv failure (i assume you mean reduced pumping power) does not result in any specific ECG findings. In fact, the ECG can look completely normal! on the other hand, in many patients, a whole range of abnormalities can be seen, including evidence of prior heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), conduction system disease, thickening of the heart muscle (hypertrophy), etc. See your doctor. ...Read more

I was told by a nurse that my test results showed I have ventricular tacicardyah, how worried should I be?

I was told by a nurse that my test results showed I have ventricular tacicardyah, how worried should I be?

Get the facts: All fair-minded people respect nurses, and in fact they do much more than we doctors do to keep sick people alive and comfortable day-to-day. If you have real ventricular tachycardia, it'll take your breath away at best, and your physician (not the nurse) will have told you about it already and initiated appropriate treatment. Any doubts, get a second physician's opinion. ...Read more

What is the normal size of the rv in a adult? Right ventricular its 2.7 to what? And at how big is it dangerous?

What is the normal size of the rv in a adult? Right ventricular its 2.7 to what? And at how big is it dangerous?

Depends: It depends on where you are measuring the RV from. As based on the low normal your report, this is likely a mid RV diameter measure. At this point in the heart, normal is from 2.7- 3.3cm. In regards to dangerousness, this is a complicated answer. It depends on why it's enlarged but also how the function(pumping ability) is too. ...Read more

What is the difference between right ventricular mild enlargement and cardiomyopathy? Or is it basically the same,thing?

What is the difference between right ventricular mild enlargement and cardiomyopathy? Or is it basically the same,thing?

Cardiomyopathy: right ventricular enlargement is a size measure, cardiomyopathy is an abnormality of the heart muscle. They are not the same thing though cardiomyopathies can cause chamber enlargement. ...Read more

Can you tell me how is the magnitude of the isovolumetric relaxation altered by the increase of the ventricular lusitropy?

Can you tell me how is the magnitude of the isovolumetric relaxation altered by the increase of the ventricular lusitropy?

Increased: Isovolumetric relaxation is one of the most miraculous properties of the heart that needs to "actively relax" by untwisting in order to accommodate incoming blood in diastole, the relaxation phase of the cardiac cycle that produces the lower blood pressure number. Lusitropy is a term describing capacity for diastolic relaxation and isovolumetric relaxation increases with increases in lusitropy. ...Read more

I on metosartan 50 mg for 2 years for overleft ventricular entropy. creatinine level is 1.2 against 0.9 a year ago. is this a cause for concern ?

I  on metosartan 50 mg for  2 years for overleft ventricular entropy.  creatinine level is 1.2 against 0.9 a year ago. is this a cause for concern ?

NO: Not a cause for serious concern. The Metosartan can cause this elevation of your creatinine, and it is still in normal limits. You should repeat the test in about three months and see if there is a trend. DO NOT PANIC... ...Read more

Is this an accurate description of NonSustained Ventricular Tachy an extremely fast flurry beats lasting <3-10secs without symptoms few times a year?

Is this an accurate description of NonSustained Ventricular Tachy an extremely fast flurry beats lasting <3-10secs without symptoms few times a year?

Sorry No.: The definition is three or more ventricular beats faster than 120 BPM. Unfortunately what you describe could be atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter or any of a number of other arrhythmias. Nonsustained=not lasting, Ventricular=coming from the ventricle, Tachycardia=fast heart beat. ...Read more

76yr old grandmom was diagnosed with left ventricular dysfunction. Said her left side was functioning at 48%. What does this mean overall & what is next?

76yr old grandmom was diagnosed with left ventricular dysfunction. Said her left side was functioning at 48%. What does this mean overall & what is next?

Heart failure: Left side (ventricle) of heart pumps blood to body. Ejection fraction is a means to determine efficiency of heart at pumping out blood. Normal is greater than 50%. So anything less is left ventricular dysfunction aka heart failure. Best to control blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, etc. Stop smoking.
