Can a clogged heart artery affect the brain?

Can a clogged heart artery affect the brain?

Many possible ways: Clogged heart arteries may be associated with hardening of the vessels in the brain because these 2 conditions have many of the same risk factors (diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, etc). A clot in the heart may travel in the bloodstream and cause a stroke in the brain. It the heart clot affects the heart's ability to pump blood efficiently to brain, other problems due to that may also occur. ...Read more

Heart ultra sound shows leaky valve .Stress test heart rate 170 at 2nd stage.Pre mature irregular beats.Almost faint when standing.Tired.Short breath?

Heart ultra sound shows leaky valve .Stress test heart rate 170 at 2nd stage.Pre mature irregular beats.Almost faint when standing.Tired.Short breath?

Leaky heart valve: The symptoms of lightheadedness when standing is often related to a drop in blood pressure and/or heart rate. Since you also have fatigue and shortness of breath, as well as irregular heart beats on the stress test and a leaky valve on the echocardiogram you should be evaluated by a cardiologist. There are other tests that can be performed to help with the diagnosis. ...Read more

Is there a relationship between coronary heart disease, angina, heart failure and heart attack?

Is there a relationship between coronary heart disease, angina, heart failure and heart attack?

Continuum: Coronary disease develops from our lifestyle and as we age real blockage develops in some or all coronary vessels. One or more plaques disrupt and obstruct. If adequate collateral pathways exist may just vagus transient angina or pain. Angina is pain without damage. If not adequate flow, or collateral, acute myocardial infarction- heart attack occurs and that is "damage". Heart failure may follow. ...Read more

How could a high heart rate influence coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

How could a high heart rate influence coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

Decrease: In coronary perfusion pressure due to shortened diastole. Oxygen demand is increased but perfusion may not keep up if there is narrowing of coronary artery ...Read more

Can heart rate increase by pressing on the vagus nerve and/or carotid artery?

Can heart rate increase by pressing on the vagus nerve and/or carotid artery?

No: Pressing on the vagus nerve or doing a carotid massage usually induces a vagal response which by definition translates to a slowing of the heart rate, not increasing it. ...Read more

Hollow chest cavity , racing heart rate, murmur. Related?

Hollow chest cavity , racing heart rate, murmur. Related?

Maybe: Pectus excavatum is more common in folks with marfan-like illness, who in turn are more likely to have "barlow" degenerative mitral valve disease which in turn predisposes a person to supraventricular tachycardia. Your physician may give you an rx, but ask also about getting into really good aerobic shape to manage the svt -- generally this works great and may keep you off meds. ...Read more

Will atherosclerosis of the femoral artery affect heart beat and ekg?

Will atherosclerosis of the femoral artery affect heart beat and  ekg?

No: Ekgs measure the electrical activity of the heart. Palpitations ( irregular heartbeats) are also a function of the electrical activity in the heart. Neither of these will be affected by having atherosclerosis in the femoral artery of the leg. ...Read more

How might coronary heart disease affect the heart muscle and the circulatory system?

How might coronary heart disease affect the heart muscle and the circulatory system?

Directly: The coronary arteries and their branches carry the blood and oxygen to the heart muscle cells. Poor flow, low oxygen, cells die- equals heart attack. If enough muscle dies, then heart failure, cardiac arrest, no circulation, and death. ...Read more

What is the physiology that explains how a high heart rate influences coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

Circular question: By itself, a high heart rate will result in higher oxygen demand and utilization, but delivery should also increase to compensate. So everything should balance if the heart is healthy. If the heart isn't healthy to begin with a high heart rate is not desirable. ...Read more

Atleast 3-4 times a week when I wake up my hearts racing at well over 100 bpm. What causes this?

Atleast 3-4 times a week when I wake up my hearts racing at well over 100 bpm. What causes this?

Palpitations: You are having palpitations, which can be caused by many things, including thyroid issues, anxiety, arrhythmias, caffeine, hypoglycemia, among many other things. You need to be evaluated both with blood tests and possibly with a 24 hour monitor called a holter monitor to see what the heart is doing during these episodes from an electrical standpoint. ...Read more
