What do you suggest if my dad have lateral wall ischemia should he go in the icu?

What do you suggest if my dad have lateral wall ischemia should he go in the icu?

No: That is certainly not a reason to go to the ICU. His treatment depends on many parameters: symptoms, change in status, overall health, how the ischemia was diagnosed,associated findings - just to name a few. I would advise him to delay his trip to Mt. Everest and discuss his results with his doctor for a comprehensive treatment plan. Doctors treat people, not test results. ...Read more

If you are diagnosed with lateral wall ischemia does that mean you should be in the icu?

If you are diagnosed with  lateral wall ischemia does that mean you should be in the icu?

Ischemia: No. Lateral wall ischemia means that the left part of the left ventricle is not getting enough blood. Unless otherwise specified, it suggests that there is a blockage, usually chronic, of the circumflex artery. Most such individuals should not be in the icu. If this is reversible ischemia, and the area of ischemia is large, further studies may be needed to evaluate the situation further. ...Read more

Electrocardiographic diagnosis is: rbbb incomplete, lateral wall ischemia. What does it mean?

Not much.: If you are a 19 y/o female without signs or symptoms of heart disease and you can exercise then i would suggest that their is a small delay in the electrical signal traveeling through the right bundle branch of your heart's electrical system. The part about lateral ischemia is probably artifact due to lead placement coupled with a normal age related variant. Nothing to worry about. ...Read more

What is lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed. Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex. What does this mean?

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex.  What does this mean?

Test result: If I presume your Dad is the 87y/o person listed on this then the test result has good implications. The gross implication is that there is coronary artery disease present and it isn't producing a lot of ischemia. In an 87y/o without symptoms or minor symptoms, medical therapy is appropriate. ...Read more

My father-inlaw 67 yr Parkinson's at icu for 21days.2moro he'll discharge.But he is using condom catheter for urinary incontinence.What to do?

Likely to resolve : I presume he didn't have incontinence before this acute illness. If so it is likely to resolve spontaneously. They probably have used indwelling foley catheter when he was in icu; which can cause incontinence for few days after removing catheter. Other possibilities are urinary retention, infection, prostate enlargement. Call his doctor if doesn't resolve spontaneously. ...Read more
