If av fistula in arm.. Does your pulse become bounding or weak?

If av fistula in arm.. Does your pulse become bounding or weak?

Slightly weaker: The fistula it self should have a strong pulsation but the pulse below it is a bit weaker because the fistula steals some of the arterial blood from the artery that goes down to the wrist providing that arterial pressure to the vein above it. It should remain palpable though and the hand should remains well supplied with blood. ...Read more

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due associated with decreased cardiac output?

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due associated with decreased cardiac output?

Congestion: Breathlessness, especially with exertion. Easy fatigability. Impaired exercise capacity. These are early signs. Without treatment, one becomes short of breath resting, especially when lying down (orthopnea) and at night (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Eventually the right heart also fails leading to swelling (edema), abdominal fluid (ascites and effusions), and cachexia (wasting). ...Read more

Anxiety or stress can cause shortness of breath, dizziness or fatigue, sensation of failure of heart beats, or heart accelerated?

The symptoms are not imaginary, but would not usually be accompanied by ekg abnormality besides tachycardia.

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure associated with decreased cardiac output?

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure associated with decreased cardiac output?

Swelling: The left side of the heart pumps blood throughout your body. When it fails, it decreases blood flow to organs. This can cause kidney injury, liver injury, fatigue, shortness of breath with little exertion, swelling of the feet and legs, fluid build-up in the lungs, and difficulty sleeping flat due to shortness of breath. Medications and diet are important for this disease! ...Read more

Do you get decreased or increased cardiac output in preeclampsia?

Do you get decreased or increased cardiac output in preeclampsia?

Decreased.: Preeclampsia is a disorder with decreased intravascular volume (vasoconstriciton and leaky capillaries lead to third-spacing), therefore the cardiac output is accordingly decreased. In rare cases (especially with multifetal pregnancies, large mother/fetus) preeclampsia can cause peripartum cardiomyopathy which can further profoundly decrease the cardiac output. ...Read more

36yr old male with 2episodes of feeling dizzy while standing. No nausea or collapse. Normally fit and well. Normal pulse and blood pressure. Cause?

Perhaps vertigo: If you felt as if you were moving, then it could be peripheral vertigo. This causes episodic dizziness, especially after head movement, and it affects people regardless of their overall health. It sounds much less likely it would be related to medicines, your heart function or your brain. How long did it last? Was it better with sitting down? Might help to know. ...Read more

Raynaud's disease due to low blood flow or worsened with mild dehydration?

Raynaud's disease due to low blood flow or worsened with mild dehydration?

It is a vasospasm...: Raynaud's disease causes low blood flow in periphery, e.g. Fingers, due to spasm in small peripheral arteries like in hands and feet. Accordingly, discoloration, tingling, numbness, and even pain develop. Due to the already decreased circulating blood volume in dehydration, a raynaud's condition could conceivably appear worse. ...Read more
