Lung (Definition)

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

Minimal haziness noted in the right lung base which may represent pneumonitis or just overlapping vascular markings. What does it mean?

Minimal haziness noted in the right lung base which may represent pneumonitis or just overlapping vascular markings. What does it mean?

Pulmonary infiltrate: This is radiologist language. It generally means that there is a minimal shadow in that area of the lung and that the examiner cannot be sure if it is abnormal or not, and so he refers it back to the doctor who ordered it in order that it be placed in clinical context of your symptoms and other findings. ...Read more

Lungs takes involuntary sudden breath why? I'm asthmatic and possibly vascular diease problems. Is all associated together?

Tic? Habit?: A sudden inspiration without associated shortness of breath could be a tic or a type of habit. If there are repetitive non stop sudden breaths that would be more significant but intermittent sudden breaths makes me think of either a tic or a habit. ...Read more

Are vascular conditions a common complication of lung disease?

Are vascular conditions a common complication of lung disease?

Yes for some lung dz: Any condition that causes pulmonary hypertension (emphysema/copd, sleep apnea, fibrosis, scleroderma, etc) can lead to cor pulmonale (right-heart failure) which stagnates venous flow and cause liver problems. Cancer or infection of the lung can sometimes lead to dic, a life-threatening condition in which clots block small blood vessels all over the body. ...Read more

Iv have micro vascular dysfunction & have angina I keep getting pain to the right of my chest it comes & goes & lasts a few secs is this normal?

Iv have micro vascular dysfunction & have angina I keep getting pain to the right of my chest it comes & goes & lasts a few secs is this normal?

No: Pain in the chest is never normal. Whether the pain is significant is the more important question. You state that you have Angina so I assume that there is a different type of thing that you're having. Pain in the right side of the chest is atypical for angina. Pain lasting for just a few seconds in the chest is rarely significant. So your pain is not normal but probably not significant. That said, you should consult your physician. ...Read more

I have EDS & being tested for vascular EDS. I had a recent ECG showing inverted t-wave in v2&v3. I'm 30y/old. I have frequent chest stabbing pain & palpitations & fainting for 8 years+. Does my ECG point towards V-EDS? Should I be concerned?

Ehlers Danlos: The answer to your question requires an evaluation, physical exam, and testing. A chest xray can be helpful, but a CT-scan of the chest is more sensitive. The ECG is helpful but not diagnostic. If you have an Aortic aneurysm, that is serious and mandates treatment. Please do complete the testing recommended by your doctors. Good luck. ...Read more

My chest xray accentuated broncho-pulmonary vascular markings at para cardiac region for clinical correlation what is that mean??

Nonspecific: In this age, likely x ray technique or reader overcall. Bronchial thickening can be acute (allergic or infectious bronchitis, poss. asthma) or chronic (a component of COPD (really doubt under 30 yo)). Vessels can be prominent due to heart failure (usu. Upper lung, in aged). > vessels on the rt.? pectus, AKA pigeon chest.

Is an EKG a definitive test for vascular damage for a patient with chest pain?

Not definitive: Ecg can be completely normal unless you had a previous infarct or are currently having an acute coronary syndrome. There are signs suggesting ischemic heart disease but they re not definitive. A stress test is the next line of testing followed by cardiac catheterization which is truly definitive. ...Read more

Mum was diagnosed with thrombosis partialis v.subclaviae sin st. Post mastectomiam in chest by vascular surgeon, prescribed clexane. Is this dangerous?

The drug or the Dx?: Wish your mother and yourself the best of health, I didn't get exactly your concern: the diagnosis is complex, and hopefully she'll be cured, the clexane is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) that's given to patients who have had thrombosis or to prevent formation of other ones. Again wish you all wellness ...Read more

Cause string/cord feeling after 30 mins of exercise in legs bilateral? Chest pains sometimes too. Dizziness, nausea. Vascular? Neurology? Pulmonology

Cause string/cord feeling after 30 mins of exercise in legs bilateral? Chest pains sometimes too. Dizziness, nausea. Vascular? Neurology? Pulmonology

Primary Care: Start any workup with your primary care physician. My concern is the chest pain. I would start with a good stress test or other screening cardiac workup (EKG, stress echo, and calcium score, maybe), then rule out peripheral vascular problems, then check nerve function. This would be more efficient after a proper exam, though. See your doctor... ...Read more

Could I have micro vascular angina? I'm 25 and when stressed or sometimes resting I have pain chest, left arm, jaw and neck and back. Can last all day

Not angina: Chest pain that lasts over 30 minutes and is not a heart attack: is NOT coming from the heart. The operative word is "stressed" and that is where you at age 25, should concentrate. Be sure this is not anxiety reaction or panic attack that can be as life changing and serious as a heart attack. Get help. Good luck. ...Read more

You did the right: Thing by excluding the serious condition that can endanger your life.

How do they test for any vascular problems? I have low BP and irregular heart beat and chest pain and pain thru my leg. Limbs feel numb a lot.

PAD evaluated: By a good history and physical, diagnostic testing like ankle-brachial index (ratio of lower extremity to upper extremity systolic pressure), noninvasive angiography. Abi of less than 0.9 establish the diagnosis. After diagnosis done delineation of the disease very important with other test. Why you have irregular hear rate? If the stress test negative? See your doctor to start a good assessment. ...Read more

Can it be normal to have very visible veins on arms, legs, and chest/breast even at 35? I'm pale and very thin. Petrified of vascular ehlers-danlos.

Can it be normal to have very visible veins on arms, legs, and chest/breast even at 35? I'm pale and very thin. Petrified of vascular ehlers-danlos.

Veins can be seen: If you are pale and thin, you would be a typical person where veins could be seen in the areas you described and can occur even before age 35. If you are 35 and Ehlers Danlos has never been brought up to you previously by a medical professional there is less chance you have the condition. To relax further see your primary care or a rheumatologist. Good luck ...Read more
