Common Ailments Of The Circulatory System And Their Symptoms
Here is the list:
High blood pressure (hypertension)
atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). This can lead to heart attack (coronary artery occlusion), stroke or peripheral vascular disease (may cause gangrene from poor circulation in the legs). Vascular occlusions can also occur due to blood clots inside the diseased arteries and or inside the veins (venous thrombosis which can lead to pulmonary embolism (lungs). ...Read more
Is thrombosis a circulatory disorder? Also, do you know what part of the circulatory system is affected and what are the treatment options?
Effect....: Pulmonary hypertension means the right side of the heart needs to work harder to pump blood into the lung circulation due to the increased pressure. This, in turn, can lead to increased pressures in the peripheral circulation which eventually can lead to increased work of the left side of the heart. ...Read more
Blood: All the cells that compose your body require a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients and means of removing waste. These functions are performed by blood. Your heart pumps oxygen rich blood to all areas and receive oxygen poor blood in return - simulataneously, your heart separately pumps this oxygen poor blood to your lungs and receives it to pump everywhere else. Blood goes round and round. ...Read more
Follow the following: Exercise most days of the week (aerobic work), eat fruits and vegetables liberally, limit saturated fats, increase fish and fish oil intake, have fiber with each meal, keep your weight in check, don't smoke at all or drink excessively (one or two drinks weekly).

Cardiology: Good question, but probably the wrong forum. To answer this question would take up a full text book. I am happy to hear that your are curious and maybe you can get into a class to learn about physiology and biology and pathology. Maybe you can be on your way to medical school. Keep learning. ...Read more
Many things: Generally speaking, many things. If the organ was previously functioning normally, usually malfunction is caused by some sort of injury on the gross level (like mechanical trauma) or on the cellular or sub-cellular level (i.e. some sort of disease process). Causes can also generally be grouped into "acquired" or "congenital" (meaning you were born with it). Hope this helps ...Read more
It is essential for: Humans can not survive without circulatory system which includes heart and blood vessels. This system provides oxygen carrying blood to all parts of the body. The heart pumps blood and the arteries carry it around and the veins return it back to heart (and lungs for oxygenation). ...Read more
I just went over: This with my 16 year old daughter for her biology class. Is this part of a school assignment? It is better for you to learn about it rather than me try to cover it in 400 characters or less. Here is a great article: https://www. Livescience. Com/22486-circulatory-system. Html ...Read more

Not so much.: Leukemia is a malignancy of blood and their bone marrow progenitors. They usually circulate in the blood normally without causing problems to blood flow. If left untreated, however leukemia can lead to extremely high blood counts, to the point where normal blood flow would be impaired. ...Read more

Atherosclerosis: This condition is caused by poor diet which is typically a diet with too much animal fat in it. It also occurs in obese people and in those who have diabetes once again due to over eating. Excessive fat (cholesterol) is deposited inside the arteries which leads to damaged vasculature, a set up for heart attack and or stroke due to blood clots forming inside the diseased arteries. ...Read more
Yes: The part of the nervous system that controls the circulatory system is the autonomic nervous system, which can affect heart rate and blood pressure. Vasovagal syncope is an example. The vagus nerve, when stimulated, causes the heart rate to slow down and blood pressure to drop, which in turn can cause a person to pass out. ...Read more
Well: This is a very good question. Now if you remember the circulatory system travels throughout the body so if there is a disease of the circulatory system it will be spread throughout the body because the circulatory system travels everywhere ...Read more

Nicotine addiction: Nicotine is a powerful vasoconstrictor. For each cigarette smoked the arteries constrict for about an hour with the result of 50% reduction in blood flow. Nicotine shuts down your circulation. Many with nicotine addiction like its calming effect, which long term leads to ischemic complications like stroke, heart attack, limb loss and sudden death. Hope you can quit. Small amounts red wine okay. ...Read more
