Myocardial infarction causes?

Myocardial infarction causes?

Many poss causes: Almost all heart attacks are the result of fatty deposits on the inside of arteries that break open and cause clotting which will blocks the artery (and the blood from flowing to the part of the heart the artery feeds). Family history, fatty diet, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and other disorders can all contribute to this process. ...Read more

Define?accute anteroseptal myocardial infarction, atherosclerotic obstructive coronary artery disease, pulmonary edema, cardiogenic shock, hypokalemia

Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge. Or you may just ask your doc who should be able to answer your questions to the point much easier. ...Read more

What is acute coronary syndrome myocardial infarction?

Continuum: Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage. ...Read more

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause myocardial infarction?

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause  myocardial infarction?

Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Is induced cerebral hypoperfusion reversible?

Maybe. Probably.: Cerebral hypoperfusion literally means "not enough blood to the brain." so whether or not it is reversible depends on the cause for the decreased blood flow, and "induced" typically refers to intentionally causing this, such as for brain surgery or diagnostically. If this is the case, then yes, it's reversible. You should ask your doctor for more information rather than "medspeak.". ...Read more

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Yes : Transient ischemic attack is cerebral ischemia that results in transient neurologic dysfunction without acute infarction. Symptoms last for minutes to 24 hr and is transient and therefore reversible. ...Read more

How serious is myocardial ischemia?

How serious is myocardial ischemia?

Maybe very serious: Ischemia means an area of the heart is not getting enough blood usually because of a blockage in an artery. The severity depends on whether it is a major artery or not. ...Read more

What confirms myocardial infarction?

What confirms myocardial infarction?

Toponins,clinic,wall: Acute cardiogenic shock, .Ventricular arrythmias, infarct syndrome, flash pulmonary edema, wall motion abnormalities, syncope, presyncope, cardiac arrest, . It takes 4 hours for troponins to elevate after the infarct begins. That is why clinical symptoms dictate emergent coronary interventions. Troponins may still be normal within minutes of a life threatening myocardial infarct. ...Read more

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?

the same thing: Arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease means blockages in the coronary arteries. The manifestation of coronary artery blockage is a heart attack. When this happen suddenly, we say it is acute. ...Read more

Does asthma lead to myocardial infarction?

Does asthma lead to myocardial infarction?

It can if...: Asthma can lead to a heart attack if you have coronary arterial disease. The stress from an asthma attack can lead to an mi, or the inflammation associated with uncontrolled asthma might lead to rupture of the plaque in the coronary artery, again leading to mi. This might be the mechanism that explains the increase in heart attacks during high pollution days... But might not. ...Read more

Can pericardial effusion lead to myocardial infarction?

Can pericardial effusion lead to myocardial infarction?

Pericardial effusion: A large pericardial effusion causes a condition called pericardial tamponade, wherein the pressure is so great it prevents the heart from beating effectively. This could cause a myocardial infarction, it certainly affects the blood flow to the brain and body. ...Read more

What is myocardial perfusion scintigraphy?

What is myocardial perfusion scintigraphy?

Let me try to: Myocardial perfusion scan is a nuclear medicine procedure that illustrates the function of the heart muscle (myocardium). It evaluates many heart conditions from coronary artery disease to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and myocardial wall motion abnormalities. The function of the myocardium is also evaluated by calculating the left ventricular ejection fraction (lvef) of the heart. Good luck. ...Read more

How does coronary artery disease lead to myocardial ischemia?

How does coronary artery disease lead to myocardial ischemia?

By blocking the flow: In young, healthy individuals the inner lining of the blood vessels is clean and smooth. Overtime, for many reasons, the inner surface of the heart blood vessels (coronary arteries) may start becoming bumpy/lumpy or blocked due to fat (cholesterol) deposits called "atherosclerotic plaque". This in turn reduces the amount of blood flow available causing "ischemia" (oxygen deprivation). ...Read more
