Clarify:cardiac output too high at rest? Echo:stroke volume 100ml by 70 bpm, that means cardiac out:7l/min; cardiac index would be 3, 57l/min*m2.Txs
High Cardiac Output: Cardiac output is calculated by multiplying stroke volume by heart rate. Since the amount of blood pumped by the heart is dependent on body surface area ie. A larger person needs more blood supply. If it is more than 6l/min in an average person, at rest , and associated with symptoms, the cause must be looked into. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
Which value of cardiac output is considered high?My stroke volume 90ml, by 75 bpm, that means cardiac out:6, 7l/min;cardiac index would be 3, 5l/min*m2.Tx
Cardiac Output: Numbers such as you list can be normal especially in a smoker. Numbers alone without clinical correlation don't necessarily mean a lot. You should discuss these data with the physician(s) who know you and your specifics. ...Read more
Is my cardiac output too high? Results from echo:stroke volume 100ml, by 70 bpm, that means cardiac out:7l/min; cardiac index would be 3, 57l/min*m2.
Similar rise but..: Both start to rise 4 to 6 hrs from the onset of chest pain. Both tend to peak 18 to 24 hrs. The cpk-mb then returns back to base line over 72hrs and trop-i stays up for 1-2 wks. Trop -i is more specific for mi and less false positives. Its more commonly used due to this. ...Read more
What is the physiology that explains how a high heart rate influences coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?
Is this to worry about? Cardiac echo said: diastolic parameters borderline abnormal. Lateral peak velocity 14cm/second, medial 6cm/second.
Hello, is normal overall heart ejection fraction 65% (according the measuring from heart echo device)?
Yes: Completely, 100% normal!Get a more detailed answer ›
Upper body feeling tight,tingling in face.NormEKG,Stress,echo,24holt.Age28,noFamHist,NonSmoker. f/U cardio said heart is healthy.Anxiety?Still heart?
Is elevated pulmonary artery pressure is indicator of congestive heart failure? Echo showed ef = 39% with pap = 40.
Many methods: There are many methods, with varying accuracy. Bmi is simply wt/ht(2). A simple method for %fat is impedance, and trainers often use them. Gold standard for %fat is underwater weighing, bodpod, or dexa. Rmr requires a metabolic cart which is used in hospitals and research labs. Many of these are relegated to research labs. It is usually not necessary to know all this to be healthy. ...Read more
I hope so!: It's part of what cardiologists do for a living. Ejection fraction is the percentage change in ventricular volume in one beat. 55% or better is normal but >75% suggests a hyperdynamic state which may be physiologic or pathologic. Cardiac output is the volume of blood (in liters per minute) that the heart pumps. Co is the product of stroke volume (blood in ccs per beat) x the heart rate (bpm). ...Read more
Left atrium volume index of 36 cc/m2. Is this significant? Everything else on Echo & cardiac MRI was normal. History of NSVT.
Probably not but che: Ask your Cardiologist to see if your left atrium is enlarged or not on the pictures. During an echocardiogram, many measurements (about 25) are taken on grainy pictures so just by pure chance, there's a 50-50 chance that at least 4 measurements will be off. If only 1 measurement I'd off, you cannot draw conclusions from it. If more measurements support a diagnosis, you'll need Cardiology help. GL! ...Read more

Quite common: Collateral circulation is quite common in people who have progressive development of coronary artery narrowing. Several examples of collateral circulation are normal consequences of the native coronary circulation. ...Read more
