Patho physiology of heart failure in anemi?

Patho physiology of heart failure in anemi?

--: Anemia means low oxygen carrying agents in the blood and this is then compounded with the heart effort to maintain the oxygen delivery to other organs especially the brain by increasing its cardiac output -- and in the presence of a weak heart or other stress factor such as trauma or infection, the heart is overwhelmed and congestive heart failure ensues. ...Read more

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

No: Binaural beats have been studied for decades by neurophysiologists for clues to how the brain processes sensory input. Studies I've seen suggest that they MAY elicit transient alterations in some aspects of mood or cognition. I've seen NOTHING to substantiate the ludicrous claims made by the binaural-beat lunatic fringe on YouTube etc., whose enthusiasm far outstrips their understanding. ...Read more

Speeding heart beats and irregular breathing, is that anxiety attack?

Speeding heart beats and irregular breathing, is that anxiety attack?

Could Be: Increased heart rate and difficulty breathing can be physical symptoms of a panic attack. It would be a good idea to have these symptoms evaluated by your regular physician if you have not already done so. If there appears to be no clear problem related to your lungs or heart, the the likelihood of panic attacks becomes even more likely. ...Read more

How does electrical stimulation of the heart coordinate the overall cardiac cycle?

Millisecond timing: The 2 atria act as reservoirs for returning blood; the 2 ventricles are the "pumpers". The 4 chambers must be coordinated with millisecond timing to maximize the amount of blood pumped (cardiac output). This is done by a network of specialized cells which are found in tracts or bundles that conduct a micro-electrical current to time motion. A gross analogy: think of the distributor in your car. ...Read more

Name a medicine that increases heart rate and the force of heart contraction?

Name a medicine that increases heart rate and the force of heart contraction?

Sympathomimetics: The group name of medications that increases heart rate/contractions (chronotropic) are sympathomimetics. Of these are included caffeine, epinephrine, dopamine, Dobutamine (mostly contraction strength), and many others. ...Read more

What's the relationship between pressure, flow and resistance in the cardiovascular system?

What's the relationship between pressure, flow and resistance in the cardiovascular system?

Simply: Increase resistance in vascular beds will cause increase in blood pressure , the increase resistance comes from spasms in vascular bed that means decrease flow to these arteries and organs and usually shifting more flow to other vascular beds with no spasm like heart and brain. ...Read more

High cholesterol affect endorine system and hormone inbalance?

High cholesterol affect endorine system and hormone inbalance?

No: Hi. High cholesterol may increase risk of heart attack, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease, but it does not affect the endocrine system adversely or cause a "hormone imbalance" (a completely worthless term and concept, by the way). Get a lipid profile to see what is high. If it's LDL (and maybe VLDL) and/or if HDL is low, you may be at increased risk. Good luck! ...Read more

What physiological signals in the heart change systolic blood pressure with exercise?

What physiological signals in the heart change systolic blood pressure with exercise?

Sympathetic nerves: During exercise the sympathetic nervous system is stimulated. The catecholamines released as well as direct stimulation on the heart result in a faster heart rate as well as increased contractility which raises cardiac output. This increases the rate of volume/pressure rise into the vasculature (dp/dt). This increases bp. ...Read more

How is cardiac output regulates central venous pressure?

How is cardiac output regulates central venous pressure?

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

(not depressed) weakness beyond belief breathing, talking, moving slow cognitive functions loss of emotions/feelings no adrenaline limbs no energy?

Med eval.: 29 year old male with these symptoms, makes we wonder about things like an infection (such as mononucleosis), neurological problem, anemia, an endocrine imbalance (i.e., thyroid, testosterone, etc.) or depression (even though you said you aren't depressed). Don't know why you are taking vitamin B12 & viagra (sildenafil). Don't know length of sxs. This requires thorough medical evaluation to evaluate. ...Read more

Could the Atkins fitness program harm the heart?

Could the Atkins fitness program harm the heart?

Yep: Atkins' diet (not fitness plan) is essentially a caloric restriction based on eating only fats. The idea is that you'll feel full and/or sick before you get more calories than you need for the day. As atkins himself found out, it leads to premature heart disease and heart attacks. Meats are often cured with large amounts of salt too, so there's a decent chance of accelerated hypertension as well. ...Read more

How might coronary heart disease affect the heart muscle and the circulatory system?

How might coronary heart disease affect the heart muscle and the circulatory system?

Directly: The coronary arteries and their branches carry the blood and oxygen to the heart muscle cells. Poor flow, low oxygen, cells die- equals heart attack. If enough muscle dies, then heart failure, cardiac arrest, no circulation, and death. ...Read more

What is the physiology that explains how a high heart rate influences coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

What is the physiology that explains how a high heart rate influences coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

Circular question: By itself, a high heart rate will result in higher oxygen demand and utilization, but delivery should also increase to compensate. So everything should balance if the heart is healthy. If the heart isn't healthy to begin with a high heart rate is not desirable. ...Read more

Can breathing polluted air increase stress on heart's regulation capacity?

Can breathing polluted air increase stress on heart's regulation capacity?

Yes: Several recent studies have shown that air pollution seems to contribute to an increased risk of coronary artery disease. In observational studies that correlated the degree of air pollution in various cities, there was a clear relationship between higher levels of air pollution and a higher incidence of heart disease. Very provocative recent work, but not surprising given the risk of cigarettes. ...Read more
