Myocardial Infarction Lab Values
Toponins,clinic,wall: Acute cardiogenic shock, .Ventricular arrythmias, infarct syndrome, flash pulmonary edema, wall motion abnormalities, syncope, presyncope, cardiac arrest, . It takes 4 hours for troponins to elevate after the infarct begins. That is why clinical symptoms dictate emergent coronary interventions. Troponins may still be normal within minutes of a life threatening myocardial infarct. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more

Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge. Or you may just ask your doc who should be able to answer your questions to the point much easier. ...Read more

I had nuclear stress study done & interpretation states: Sm reversible ischemia, inferior wall. Ejection fraction 51%. is heart cath needed?
Ct corn angio- norm myocardial morphology/function.No plaque/stenosis.Mild myocardial bridge mid of LAD w/o significant attenuation of vessel.Explain?
Coronary angio: Simplest answer to your question is it is normal....Myocardial bridge without attenuation of vessel is normal variant. ...Read more

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
ST elevation...: Many believe that an st elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to nstemi (non st elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Continuum: Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage. ...Read more
LDH Isoenzymes lab test results:
LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?
Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal. The old 1-2 ratio is an antique screen for a heart attack, and it's neither sensitive nor specific. I know you're obsessing over the idea that you have lymphoma, and a few websites suggest this as a screening test -- but it's not. Focus on building a life for yourself. ...Read more
Yes, but not: heart disease. From the data you provided, myocardial infarction, (heart attack) can be ruled out, but not other heart diseases. Get clearance from your doctor to exercise and do it. Also - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Similar rise but..: Both start to rise 4 to 6 hrs from the onset of chest pain. Both tend to peak 18 to 24 hrs. The cpk-mb then returns back to base line over 72hrs and trop-i stays up for 1-2 wks. Trop -i is more specific for mi and less false positives. Its more commonly used due to this. ...Read more
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more
