I have a very high blood pressure of 155/80, diziness. Found "sinus tachycardia" and "intraventricular conduction block". in ECG. Is this dangerous..

I have a very high blood pressure of 155/80, diziness. Found "sinus tachycardia" and "intraventricular conduction block". in ECG. Is this dangerous..

Potentially: While a blood pressure of 155/89 is NOT "very high", if you have other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, treatment should be considered. Regarding the sinus tachycardia, the seriousness of it depends on what's causing it. The intraventricular conduction block, by itself, isn't dangerous, but it may be a sign of more serious heart problems. You are right to take this seriously. ...Read more

What is an intraventricular conductive delay?

What is an intraventricular conductive delay?

Heart signals: The heart contracts as a result of an intricate "electrical network" that transmits electrical signals through the heart. An intraventricular conduction delay refers to a slower conduction of those signals through the heart's ventricle (s). This can result in irregular heart rhythms. ...Read more

What is intraventricular electrogram mapping? What is it used for?

What is intraventricular electrogram mapping? What is it used for?

Mapping: Electrogram mapping is used to track the spread of electrical depolarization in the heart. This information can help with arrhythmia management in a patient. ...Read more

Medicine to seal the hole in the intraventricular septum?

'time' or surgery: If your baby has a small vsd, it may never cause any problems, and may even close up on its own. 'holes' in the heart (such as ventricular defects=vsd) may require a procedure to correct. However many non-invasive centers around the country can do the the procedure with a 'catheter device' and not require open heart surgery. ...Read more

What does it mean if your intraventricular septum is bellow the "normal" range in thickness? . 72 CM (normal >. 9 cm)

What does it mean if your intraventricular septum is bellow the "normal" range in thickness? . 72 CM (normal >. 9 cm)

Your size?: Heart size is related to the body size. It may be entirely normal for you. It would be prudent to discuss with your doctor who already should have this information. ...Read more

What are the tests for intraventricular hemorrhage?

What are the tests for intraventricular hemorrhage?

CAT or MRI scans: Cat scans can show the hemorrhage. Mri scans can also show it but also may show the reason for the hemorrhage such as tumors or arteriovenous malformations. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of intraventricular hemorrhage?

What are the symptoms of intraventricular hemorrhage?

Intracranial bleed: Typically a intraventricular hemorrhage in the brain can cause gradual neurological changes with an alteration in mental status (less responsive) due to mass effect, . Significant headache may be present. Focal neurological deficits would be less likely. ...Read more

Will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Yes: Typically, a subarachnoid hemorrhage will circulate through the cerebrospinal fluid and gradually and steadily disappear on imaging studies, and eventually be undetectable in spinal fluid. However, a consequence of such blood degradation products might be low pressure hydrocephalus due to clustering and obstruction of outflow areas. Most pts recover, but a number may have this complication. ...Read more

What is the treatment for intraventricular hemorrhage?

Fluid drainage: Intraventricular hemorrhage can block the flow of spinal fluid in the brain causing severe pressure build up. We put a tube into the ventricle temporarily and drain out the spinal fluid until the brain pressure goes down to normal. Occasionally there is a need to remove the hemorrhage surgically. ...Read more

What are some causes of intraventricular conduction delay?

What are some causes of intraventricular conduction delay?

Intraventricular del: IVCD can be caused by anatomic or physiologic factors which would slow electrical conduction in the ventricles. Scar tissue, infiltration of abnormal tissue, electrolyte abnormality, ischemia, infarction and lots of things can cause intraventricular conduction delay. ...Read more

The thought of getting intraventricular hemorrhage scares me. What are risk factors for it?

Multiple factors: Risk factors include high blood pressure, especially poorly controlled high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, taking medication that interferes with blood clotting, and structural problems like avm, aneurism, contusion due to injury and less commonly tumor and infection. ...Read more

What does " he did have a grade 1 intraventricular hemorrhage."mean?

IVH/PVH: Intraventricular/periventricular hemorrhage (ivh/pvh) is graded from grade I to iv. Grade i, is where is a tiny hemorrhage underneath the lining of the cavity in the brain called lateral ventricle. Most studies have shown that (provided there are no other insults to the brain) and not associated with significant neurological dificits. ...Read more

What is the likelihood of recovery from a server intraventricular hemorrhage?

Unfortunately,: Generically, the mortality rate, within one year, from an intracerebral hemorrhage is 60%, year in and year out. When the blood enters the ventricle, there appears to be even a grimmer outcome. If survival does ensue, there is a risk of communicating hydrocephalus. Although poor prognosis here, would have family conference with your doctors and understand what they think. ...Read more

What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

No not serious: Your rhythm is normal. The nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means that your complexes are wide in no specific (right or left bundle branch pattern) pattern. This can happen as you age, if you smoke, as part of ischemic or other heart disease. It depends on the context in which you had the ECG done. In general it is nothing to worry about but good to know and possibly have a copy ...Read more
