Is edward's syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

None of the above: Edward syndrome is brought on by an abnormality of chromosome numbers, specifically an extra 18. The abnormal egg with a single chromosome 1-17 & 19-22 + x has a pair of 18's. When the sperm brings a single chromosome 1-22 + x or y then the embryo ends up with 47 chromosomes rather than 46 in every cell. (3-18's) the excess distorts the organ building information & defects arise. ...Read more

To dr rick koch, what is mean BP thanks?

To dr rick koch, what is mean BP thanks?

Mean BP: I'm guessing you are not interested in the concept of mean arterial pressure which incorporates aspects of systolic & diastolic pressure. Mean or average BP is the same thing. When trying to assess effectiveness of BP control I tell my patients to keep a log of BP & hr so we can average or take a mean of those values & make treatment decisions at their next office visit. Hope that helps. ...Read more

You should probably do that with your doc as well, rather than asking him to hug you w/out any warning. ...Read more
