Mitral Valve Regurgitation And Pulmonary Hypertension
PH Treatment : Treatment of pulmonary hypertension (ph) depends on the cause. Group 1 pulmonary arterial hypertension (pah) is treated with medication designed to widen the pulmonary arteries thereby lowering resistance to blood flow and reducing the need for the right ventricle to generate high pressures i.e. Ph. Mitral valve disease may be treated entirely differently depending on the severity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
