Can One Have Normal Bp And Pulse And Have Heart Failure
With heart failure is it possible to still have a normal blood pressure but if you feel your pulse it's weak?
BP,pulse: Yes and Yes to both questions,generally is impossible to gauge BP from the feel of a pulse especially by a lay person. ...Read more
Heart failure is a complex set of conditions in which the heart "fails" to pump a normal amount of blood with each beat. This can be due to poor squeezing function (systolic heart failure) and/or a stiff heart incapable of filling normally (diastolic heart failure). Common symptoms include swelling and trouble breathing, particularly when ...Read more
Taking 2.5mg Bisoprolol for raised BP only, do not have heart failure. Pulse is between 41-47bpm. Is this too low ? Recent BP : 120/67 pulse 45bpm.
A bit slow: It's not dangerous, but many people do feel tired when they're heart rate is that low. If fatigue is an issue for you, you might want to ask about a BP lowering med that won't affect your heart rate. There are so many! ...Read more

Have hcm recently had SVT pulse over 220 - troponin levels were 70 on admission -1700 after 30 minutes - what are risks heart failure?
Diastolic/systolic : Hcm course can be benign but can cause syncope, arrhythmias ( like svt), ischemia, heart failure and brain stroke. Can progress to dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure in 5 to 10% of patients as a result of fibrosis a ventricular remodeling. Atrial fibrillation, 10-20% patients, can precipitate heart failure and stroke. Focus management by close follow up with cardiology. ...Read more

Health anxiety about heart. would a recent echo have detected valve problems or heart failure? my heart beat is quiet and my pulse feels weak.
When exercising, I can see pulsing in my vision that corresponds with my heart beating. I am a 21 male with normal bp. Normal?
Not unusual: As long as your blood pressure & eye pressure is acceptable, your slight visual pulse that corresponds to your hear rate is usually a normal observed response to variations in blood pressure. A few concerns come up at times as in increased cerebrospinal fluid pressure where visual spots are seen, embolic conditions when stuttering lights are seen, optic nerve head drusen & neuritis where gray out ...Read more

Is your tropinine higher with heart failure or myocarditis? So when your tropinine is normal does this almost exclude one of those?
A normal troponin: doesn't necessarily mean that you don't have heart failure or myocarditis. Often with heart failure, unless a heart attack or significant stress to an impaired heart is involved, troponins are normal. Additionally only around 50% of biopsy proven myocarditis have elevated troponins, so you can have both conditions and normal troponins. ...Read more
I have one papvr and nothing else. Can this lead to right heart failure? My rv is, mildly enlarged, but the function, and flow is normal. Lv normal.help
PAPVR: In adulthood, no symptoms & no additional abnormalities do not require treatment. The amt of physiologic abn in turn determine severity of symptoms. Ur likelihood of developing PHTN/RH failure is dependent on degree of the shunt - >1.5-2.0. Generally if the RV is dilated that is indicative of increased RH volume and a shunt >1.5. What studies were performed? ...Read more
Would one papvr with no other abnormalities in the heart lead to right heart failure? My rv enlarged but normal function and, pressure. Lv normal too.
It is possible: You have elevated pulmonary vascular resistance. Though your RV function is normal it is enlarged. You may want to find out why you pulmonary vascular resistance is elevated. Do you have have a condition that is increasing your pulmonary blood flow? Are you having silent pulmonary embolism that is decreasing the size of your pulmonary vascular bed? Both conditions can raise your pulmonary vascular ...Read more
Depends on type: Systolic heart failure means the pump cant squeeze adequately to pump blood forward(low contractility).Diastolic heart failure usually means the heart gets thickened and cant relax to fill properly. The contractility can be high or low. ...Read more
I need to recognise between "cardiac insufficiency " and "heart failure "is it correct if been considered them one thing ?
Heart failure: You can consider them the same thing. Coronary insufficiency is however not the same thing, it relates to insufficient blood flow in the coronaries. ...Read more
Pretty much: A few very uncommon entities would be exceptions. If your exercise tolerance is as good as a non-athletic peer, you do not have CHF.

You may be pleasantly surprised by the benefits to your physical and emotional well being. ...Read more
Bnp test 88. normal is under 125. But my last reading 7 months ago was 33. Does that mean I am getting heart failure?
The variation you described is not clinically meaningful.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Arrhythmia: Patients with heart failure are prone to heart rhythm abnormalities (arrhythmias) which are fast, irregular, and don't pump any blood. If this occurs when the patient is alone, it results in sudden death. If emergency medical technicians are rapidly available, the heart rhythm can be shocked back to a regular rhythm with a small chance that the patient will fully recover. ...Read more
Is it possible to have normal bnp and high c reactive protein in idcm and still have heart failure symptoms?
Yes: A normal bnp means that your left atrial pressure is low and but you can still have a low cardiac output and feel crummy from chf. High CRP doesn't correlate with CHF symptoms. Also, bnp is a range. Bnp of <10 is very low but bnp of 100 is "normal" but may be too high for someone with idcm. Also, there is a lag time: the bnp can be rising when symptoms are present. ...Read more
Is it possible to develop heart failure within 7 months of having normal Echocardiogram? Waiting results of blood work for related symptoms.
Yes: About half of patients with symptoms of heart failure have normal echocardiogram,as determined by a measurement called ejection Fraction. This is called Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection fraction. It is frequently seen in the elderly,women,hypertensive or Diabetic . Inspite of normal echo their blood test called naturetic peptides are elevated suggesting their heart is in stress. ...Read more
Otherwise known simply as heart failure, is a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened.
