Risks during the ablation and pacemaker implantation?

Risks during the ablation and pacemaker implantation?

Risks of ablation: Mostly the risks are the same as for other procedures, including infection and bleeding, but also rhythm disturbances of the heart and the development of fluid around the heart. In addition, the risks for pacemakers include pneumothorax or the presence of air around the lung. These are usually safe procedures which are performed by trained cardiologists. ...Read more

Implantation (Definition)

One common meaning refers to the process by which an embryo attaches to the uterus of a woman so that she is pregnant. Many think of it as 'sticking.' implantation in humans always occurs when the embryo is between 6-7 days old. A very popular concept on the internet now in 2012, 'implantation bleeding, ' is speculative ...Read more

Can pcos affect the stage of implantation of the fertilized ovum,after the fertilization of ovum implantation can not occur because of pcos factors?

Can pcos affect the stage of implantation of the fertilized ovum,after the fertilization of ovum implantation can not occur because of pcos factors?

Clarify ?: Polycystic ovary syndrome has certain effects on the ability to conceive, but I don't believe that extends to altering the stage of implantation of the fertilized ovum. You really should discuss questions like this to a reproductive endocrinologist, I think that would help in your understanding of the physiology and effects of PCOS ...Read more

What happens during surgery of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator?

What happens during surgery of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator?

Sedation: The patient is sedated or anesthetized. Incision is made. Venous access is done. Needle, introducers, and wires are passed to proper position with fluoroscopic - xray control and tested electronically. Then a device nice - the aicd is attached. The wound is closed. ...Read more

Signs of embryo implantation?

Signs of embryo implantation?

Implantation bleed: Implantation bleeding happens 6-7 days after ovulation. Ovulation for mos women happens between days 12-16 from the first day of the period, on average 14 days. Therefore implantation bleeding can occur sometime between day 18 at the earliest and 22 at the latest (days 19-20 for most women). Of course there are exceptions but this applies to most regularly menstruating women. ...Read more

What are the characteristics of an implanted embryo in early tubal/ectopic pregnancy? Will there be any implantation like bleeding?

What are the characteristics of an implanted embryo in early tubal/ectopic pregnancy? Will there be any implantation like bleeding?

Often no symptoms: Ectopic pregnancies do not always show symptoms. Bleeding and pain and the most common. Often they are found by early ultrasound. IF you are at risk for tubal pregnancy schedule a visit as early as possible. ...Read more

What is the colour of implantation bleeding?Is there any chance of clots are passed in implantation bleeding.

What is the colour of implantation bleeding?Is there any chance of clots are passed in implantation bleeding.

Color is the same...: The color can be bright red or brown - basically the same as if you had some spotting during your cycle. Others have reported cramping and more bleeding similar to a period. However, every woman is different and so it's hard to predict what will happen in your particular situation. The best thing to do first is an at home pregnancy test. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What medical problems can occurr after implantation of pacemakers?

What medical problems can occurr after implantation of pacemakers?

There are many: Early: bleeding into the pacemaker pocket / infection, lead dislodgment, perforation, arrhythmias. Late: infection, arrhythmias, pacemaker malfunction anytime: pacemaker syndrome (also known as av dyssynchrony syndrome) symptoms may not improve if the indication for pacemaker insertion were soft or not really present. This is not uncommon. ...Read more

Is implantation of embryo possible with endometrial thickness of 6mm and carry pregnancy safely?

Is implantation of embryo possible with endometrial thickness of 6mm and carry pregnancy safely?

Rare: There are very few pregnancies that occur when the lining is less than 8 mm thick. That is a very important part of becoming pregnant. The only time i would perform a transfer in that situation is after a full uterine evaluation and with no choice. It is possible to become pregnant, but6 in my experience regardless of age or embryo quality pregnancy rates would be less than 5%. ...Read more

Each minute that defibrillator is delayed reduces the chance of survival of a cardiac arrest victim by how much?

Each minute that defibrillator is delayed reduces the chance of survival of a cardiac arrest victim by how much?

Not specific.: Implantable defibrillators fire within 10 seconds, and are very successfull. I takes 5 minutes of cerebral hypoxia for brain death at 37centigrade.If heart fibrillating and no CPR done, brain death will ensue within 5 minutes. If first defibrillatory shock delivered within 30 seconds of arrest best chance. ...Read more

Do endometrial injury by means of endometrium biopsy improves implantation rates?

Do endometrial injury by means of endometrium biopsy improves implantation rates?

No!: This is sort of an older idea: interesting concept but very few experts believe this nowadays. Endometrial biopsy to "improve implantation rates" should absolutely not be done routinely. ...Read more

What is the embryo doing from time of fertilization to implantation?

What is the embryo doing from time of fertilization to implantation?

Floating & growing.: The embryo floats down the fallopian tube and enters the uterus where it will implant itself in the uterine wall and establish a blood supply to the mother for further nourisment to continue its development. While floating through the fallopian tube, it has enough nourishment inherent in the egg to divide and grow. ...Read more

What is the expected value of owning a defibrillator?

None: I assume you're referring to an AED - automatic external defibrillator. Unless you live in a cardiac care unit, an airport, or some other large public area, you'll pay a lot of money and never use it. It won't benefit YOU since someone else has to apply it. It must be tested and certified annually (another expense). (If you're talking about an INTERNAL defibrillator, disregard all of the above) ...Read more

What is thachy_brady syndrome?Is it the cause of pacemaker implantation by the kind of pacemaker used? Single or dual chamber.Thank you

Fast and slow!: Tachy-brady means sometimes the heart goes too fast and other times too slow. We need a pacemaker to prevent the slow beats so we can more safely give medication to control the fast beats. The type of pacemaker depends on what type of rhythms are involved. Usually it's dual chamber unless someone is in atrial fibrillation all the time. ...Read more
