EKG details spread of electrical current through the heart. Electrical changes are sometimes suggestive of wall thickness increases, but is correlation is poor. Believe the echo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Automated by 2 ways: Some machines put liquid in the abdomen and pull it out by gravity i.e. The machine is located below the level of the bed on which the patient lies. The other does not use gravity but creates gentle negative pressure to suck the fluid back. You know the rest, the liquid that remained sometime inside the belly comes out with waste removed from the capillary circulation of the peritoneum by osmosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
