Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Because it is: When you lay down, 500-1000ml of blood volume which had previously been stored in the legs is released from the pull of gravity and can contribute to the perfusion pressures of the head and brain, and gravity is no longer decreasing the pressure of blood rising to the head. The brain rapidly compensates for this but the facial vessels much less rapidly so you can get a transient flushing. ...Read more

Might it be possible that a a human head live without a body if we use a machine to keep the blood flowing and oxygenated?

Might it be possible that a a human head live without a body if we use a machine to keep the blood flowing and oxygenated?

In theory, yes,: But the body as a whole is an amazingly complex system of interrelated feedback mechanisms all influencing each other simultaneously to achieve relative stability. At this time and for 20+ years into the future, we don't have enough intimate knowlege to replace all of the input that an isolated head needs, which is way beyond enough blood and oxygen. ...Read more

66 m fell hit his head. Now bleeding has stop and there is a pool of blood in the front right lob, he remains unresponsive. Why is he not waking up?

Head trauma: Head trauma can be lethal, and in cases of survival, the course is unpredictable. Most likely, this 66 year-old male will recover as the subdural hematoma resolves. It is very difficult to predict how intense is the damage to the midbrain, and how quickly he will recover and restore his superior functions. It is also very important that his vital signs are maintained stable during his recovery. ...Read more

Can blood pressure 140/90 give you head rushes and make you sweet or what are some of the feelings it will cause?

Maybe: The BP is higher than we like it. But it may be sudden drops or sudden spikes in your BP that is causing your symptoms. Buy a home cuff, make sure you chk it at your doctors office. If its accurate, chk your BP during one of those episodes. If BP it too low or too high then you have your answer. If not either of those things are aparent then its something else and further work up will be needed. ...Read more

Last few weeks have been smelling blood and then tasting it a few semiconductor later. Have not had any trauma at all to the head and is not dry?

Sinus or teeth: It is hard to say why you are smelling blood. It could be due to a sinus infection or a problem with your gums or teeth. These would be the top two possibilities, in my view, but other causes are possible as well. So see your primary care doc or your dentist and get examined to find out what is going on and any treatment options there are. ...Read more
