Doctor insights on:
Look up word roots:: hyper (increased, unusually active) kinetic (motion). Circulation refers to blood flow. During exercise, angry or anxious states, heart output & rate commonly increases, thus hyperkinetic compared to resting. However, I am dubious of this description as having any quantitative reliability, much significance or much, if any, diagnostic value. ...Read more
Not really: Beta blockers are important medications for people with heart disease because the may help prevent another 'heart attack'. In addition, they slow the pulse, which allows the heart muscle to spend a little more time resting (which is good for the heart) and the heart muscle does get more blood. They lower blood pressure also, which may improve circulation slightly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
You can slow it down: We start to develop atherosclerosis in our 30's and generally it progresses as we age. People who have a family history of heart disease or stroke are more susceptible. You can slow down the progression of this disease by watching your cholesterol, keeping your blood pressure in check, attaining your ideal body weight and quitting smoking. Regular exercise, stress management and good eating helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Failure kidney transplant because recurrence of focal glomerulosclerosis also has global hypokinesia on dialysis no diabetics or heart disease . ?
Transplant: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or fsgs has recurrence rate of 10 % after transplant. You can get another transplant and decrease rate of recurrence by getting plasmapheresis and galactose therapy before next surgery. These therapies have been shown to reduce risk in selected group of patients. ...Read more
Arterial doppler indicates that brachial, ulnar and intraosseous artery are of low resistive pattern. S this normal. Radial artery occluded due to clot?
Unusual: A peripheral artery should have a high resistant pattern on doppler exam. A low resistance may suggest a connection with a vein, arterial venous (av) malformation or av fistula. An injury to the arm may have caused occlusion of the radial artery and also an av fistula. Luckily the ulnar artery is usually the main vessel supplying the hand. Further studies may be needed to define the anatomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
