Causes Of Central Venous Pressure
CVP: Central venous pressure (CVP) is generally measured in a large vein returning blood to the heart or estimated on physical examination by pressure waves seen in the jugular vein in the neck. It often reflects intravascular volume and/or right heart pressure. Depending on the cause your physician may recommend sodium and fluid restriction and/or diuretic therapy. You should discuss w/ your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Find out why...: Generally there are reasons for having high central venous pressure such as congestive heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, lung disease, valvular disease or hole in the heart. It is important to know why you are having high central venous pressure. Please discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Arteries and veins: Systolic pressure is the pressure in your artery during during cardiac contraction as blood rapidly flows into the arteries . It measures to certain degree the elasticity of the vessel . Diastolic pressure is the pressure after contraction when no active flow is going and measures the resting tone of the artery . CVP is the venous pressure closest to the heart or the vena cavae. ...Read more
Starling mechanism: You mean how does venous pressure regulate cardiac output.similar to the Starling mechanism-by increasing pre load. Up to a certain point cardiac output is directionally proportional to venous pressure assuming that everything else is the same such as the after load or cardiac contractility ...Read more
Heaviness/pressure after eatin...Mostly on the upper central adbdomen...Other symp: fullness, pressure, discomfort...No pain. What could cause?"
Many possibilities: Acid reflux, peptic ulcer disease, & gall bladder or bile duct disease would top the list.

This is something that you should discuss with your doctor today. Any changes in how you are walking, weakness, or bladder changes.Are concerning and would require immediate medical attention. ...Read more
Could fludrocortisone cause reflex bradycardia if blood volume increases too much increasing central pressures?
Theoretically: It is possible that you could get reflex bradycardia from volume increase but the amount of volume required to trigger this reflex would not be achievable with florinef alone. Bradycardia is a common response in dysautonomia which florinef is used for in treatment. I suspect the reflex bradycardia is actually the physiologic response from dysautonomia not volume overload. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
