A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
Atrial fibrillation?: Most common cardiac dysthymia on the general population. Affect over 2 million people in usa. Incidence increase with age. Associated with hypertension, coronary artery disease, valvular heart dz, hyperthyroidism, copd, alcohol intake. Can be sustained or episodic. Need physical exam and ECG for diagnosis. Many patients are asymptomatic. Symptoms like: palpitations, chest pain, shortness ofbreath. ...Read more
PH and PAH: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is often first detected by echocardiogram and may be caused by a variety of conditions. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is caused narrowing of the small lung arteries and must be diagnosed by heart catheterization. PAH requires treatment by an expert specialist. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Closely: Impaired left heart function leads to elevated filling pressure of the left heart and this pressure is transmitted to the right heart creating pulmonary htn, this is the most common cause of pulmonary htn. When the right heart is the primary heart disease it reuslts in the right heart enlarging and pushing into the left heart. This will impair the forward flow of blood by the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pectoris atherosclerosis congestive heart failure coronary artery disease dilate hypertension myocardial angina pectoris, what are these?
Cv words: These all refer to cardiovascular particulars. Pectoris = Chest. Atherosclerosis = vascular wall scarring from cholesterol deposit. Coronary artery disease = narrowing and atherosclerosis of heart arteries. Dilate = expand diameter. Hypertension = high blood pressure (within arterial network). Myocardial = heart. Angina pectoris = pain of chest from coronary artery disease, lack of oxygen to heart ...Read more

Mom's echo,diastolic dysfunction grade1 with good systolic function,RVSP<30,ER72%, hypertensive heart disease,trivial &tricuspidMR.Treatment?SoScared!
Yes: Atrial fibrillation is an irregularly irregular heart rhythm , it can happen when the atrium( upper chamber of the heart) is enlarged. Hypertension causes the heart to work harder, develops hypertrophy to have enough force to push the blood forward from the ventricle ( lower chamber of the heart); the atrium in turn enlarges to push blood to ventricle and eventually dilates then a-fib develops. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: Only when the pulmonary hypertension causes the right ventricle to dilate (enlarge) does heart failure occur. This type of failure may affect the right side of the heart causing increased leg swelling, fluid buildup in the abdomen and elevation of liver enzymes. If the swelling of the right heart becomes severe it can affect the function of the left side of the heart and cause pulmonary edema. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Just who does heart attack surgery? A cardiovascular doctor? Interventional cardiologist? Thoracic & Cardiac surgeon? Differences?
Interventional: CardiologistGet a more detailed answer ›
Yes: There are many causes of pulmonary hypertension and one specific cause is from left heart disease. If systemic high blood pressure (hypertension) remains untreated for a long time, it can cause consequences to the left ventricle of the heart and cause problems of relaxation or thickening. This in turn causes high pressure in the left side of the heart and ultimately backup of blood and Pulm Hyptn. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
ECHO for PH: Pulmonary hypertension (ph) is often first detected by echocardiogram (echo) which estimates the pulmonary artery systolic pressure. The diagnosis is confirmed by right heart catheterization which measures mean pulmonary artery pressure and resistance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
PAH is treatable: FDA approved treatments include oral endothelin receptor antagonists, ambrisentan and bosentan; nitric oxide pathway, riociguat, tadalafil and sildenafil; and Prostanoids (iloprost, epoprostenol, and treprostinil) that can be oral, inhaled, or intravenous or subcutaneous infusion. These treatments widen lung blood vessels and ease the symptoms of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
