Can drugs for high blood pressure lead to ischemia?

Can drugs for high blood pressure lead to ischemia?

Depends: Some drugs affect the autonomic (automatic) nervous system and it is theoretically possible to ifluence the micro circulation. Geneally speaking ----no. ...Read more

Please tell me can drugs for high blood pressure cause ischemia?

Please tell me can drugs for high blood pressure cause ischemia?

Very rare: Only rarely. Hydralazine, nifedipine, and minoxidil - if given without a beta blocker - can cause reflex tachycardia which, in a marginally compensated person, could result in ischemia. It doesn't happen often. ...Read more

Is it possible that a medicine against high blood pressure can cause ischemia in an obese person?

Probably not: I suggest to you that the obesity is the "bad guy" and not the med. The widespread obesity is simply a reflection on lousy diet and all the sugary stuff is deadly. Even diet drinks get into the act because the organ that suffers most is the brain. See my blog, "oxygen the spark of life". ...Read more

THE RESULT OF MY ECG IS THIS " SEPTAL WALL ISCHEMIA C- IRBBB" WHAT DOES IT MINS. I AM TAKING RIFAMPICINE DRUG, MY DOCTOR SAID NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

THE RESULT OF MY ECG IS THIS " SEPTAL WALL ISCHEMIA C- IRBBB" WHAT DOES IT MINS. I AM TAKING RIFAMPICINE DRUG, MY DOCTOR SAID NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

ECG: At 28y the changes mentioned are unlikely to be from ischemia. Without knowing the patient and seeing the data however, that statement is the most we can make. Your doctor should have enough information to advise you better. ...Read more

What is inferior ischemia?

What is inferior ischemia?

Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read more

What is reversible ischemia?

What is reversible ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue:
heart attack
stroke
amputation
renal failure
are sequellae of ischemia
but mild is mild
reversible means it was treated and improved. ...Read more

What are symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It depends on the part of the body that is not getting enough blood and oxygen. If it is the heart you could get chest pain. If it's a leg, leg pain. If it's the brain you could get a stroke. ...Read more

What symptoms suggest ischemia?

Pain: Ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow and circulation. This causes a significant decrease in oxygen delivery to the tissues that causes the tissues to undergo anaerobic metabolism. This then secretes Lactic Acid which causes pain. So pain is the first sign. ...Read more

What generally causes ischemia?

What generally causes ischemia?

Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. ...Read more

What are the causes of ischemia?

Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress. ...Read more

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read more

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex.
Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow.
Usually left anterior descending artery blockage.
Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. ...Read more

What is an explanation of ischemia?

What is an explanation of ischemia?

Lack of enuff blood: "ischemia" = the normal tissue (eg heart, brain, intestine) is not receiving sufficient blood flow to supply the oxygen needed for the tissue's normal metabolic activity. For instance, ischemic heart muscle cannot contract normally. Cardiac ischemia is documented on a stress test, by using signs like EKG changes, flaccid heart muscle squeezing, or lack of uptake of nuclear tracer by heart muscle. ...Read more

What does ischemia cause in the body?

Other way 'round: Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. ...Read more

What is the significance of ischemia?

See below: Ischemia implies insufficient blood flow. Myocardial (heart) ischemia is usually due to plaque obstructing blood flow. It can also be due to coronary artery spasm (especially in smokers). Ischemia often causes chest pains but can be painless (silent ischemia). Medical therapy is preferred to control risk factors. Invasive therapy such as angioplasty or bypass surgery is for unstable patients. ...Read more

What is the usual prognosis for ischemia?

What is the usual prognosis for ischemia?

Ischemia: Well... Depends where and how :-) ischemia is a technical term for lack of tissue oxygenation, usually caused by a restriction of blood flow to organ/limb etc. Such as a blockage on the supplying blood vessel. But it can also be because of failure of the heart pump or oxygen need of the tissue exceeding supply as in sepsis, high fever... Prognosis pending correction of the underlying cause. ...Read more

What are the causes inferolateral ischemia?

Not enough blood: Inferolateral generally refers to the location in the heart. Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - I am assuming you are referring to your heart in this case - so the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. This can be caused by atherosclerosis or narrowing of the blood flow in the heart. ...Read more

What is the significance of a mild ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue:

renal failure
are sequellae of ischemia
needs workup and treatment! ...Read more

What would be signs or symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It really depends on what/where the ischemia is related to. For instance if it were the intestines then someone could have pain in their abdomen whereas if the ischemia were related to blockage in the arteries in their legs, it could present as pain in the foot/leg. I hope this helps clarify this a bit more. ...Read more

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more

What is the significance of ischemia disorder?

Lack of Oxygen: "ischemia" refers to any condition in which insufficient levels of oxygen are delivered to the tissues. Since oxygen is necessary for cell and tissue function, ischemia can cause symptoms, abnormal organ function and cell/tissue death. In the heart, for example, ischemia can result in chest pain and shortness of breath, loss of muscle strength and pump function and heart attack. ...Read more
