Could a blocked artery increase blood pressure?

Could a blocked artery increase blood pressure?

Yes.: Narrowing or blockage of renal arteries causes the kidney involved to secrete the enzyme renin which activates the renin- angiotensin- aldosterone system (involved with fluid and blood pressure control). There are medications to treat the hypertension. If the high blood pressure cannot be controlled a renal artery stent may be required. Work with your primary care doctor and a nephrologist. ...Read more

Could low blood pressure cause venous stasis?

Could low blood pressure cause venous stasis?

No: venous stasis, usually referring to blood pooling in the veins of the legs is due to incompetent leaking valves in the vein there. The pooling blood leads to increased pressur in the veins of the lower legs, which can cause injury to the skin in the lower legs. ...Read more

Can high blood pressure cause pulmonary hypertension without the pulmonary vessels constricting?

Can high blood pressure cause pulmonary hypertension without the pulmonary vessels constricting?

PULMONARY PRESSURES: Hypertension can cause a myriad of problems ranging from systemic to isolated organ damage (eyes, kidneys). Pulmonary hypertension is "high pulmonary vascular pressures" typically due to a filling issue upon return to the heart (obstruction) or an intrinsic problem of the tissue of the lung itself (stiffness). High blood pressure can worsen pulmonary hypertension but it does not cause it, per se ...Read more

Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia ?

Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia ?

Not really: Not usually. It would be important to get an EGG and find your underlying rythm. Maybe there are some conduction abnormalities or issues with your Sinus node. Have in mind that if you don't have symptoms, no treatment necessary for bradyardia. Unless you have a heart rate lower than 40 and depressed ejection fraction usually <40% ...Read more

How can you tell the difference between impeded blood flow (increased intracranial pressure) and sinus pressure?

How can you tell the difference between impeded blood flow (increased intracranial pressure) and sinus pressure?

Location: Increased intracranial pressure would be more generalized "headache" or pressure. I would expect there to be neurologic deficits as well: change in mentation, gait, speech, etc. Sinus pressure is located: maxillary - below eyes; ethmoid - between eyes; frontal - above eyes; sphenoid - on top of head or very back of head. Sinus pressure is usually very localized. ...Read more
