How does your cardiovascular system respond to exercise?

How does your cardiovascular system respond to exercise?

Exercise: The first response to exercise is to increase heart rate and then blood pressure. This is the followed by several physiologic responses such as shunting blood to the muscles and the use of both Amino Acids from proteins and fats for production of energy. There are other long term changes that take place also. ...Read more

What are the effects of CHF on the cardiovascular system?

Remodeling: The answer is far more complex than 400 characters allow.

I was wondering what are the effects caused by a weak tricuspid valve on the cardiovascular system?

I was wondering what are the effects caused by a weak tricuspid valve on the cardiovascular system?

Tricuspid valve: The valve is not 'weak.' there are two main abnormalities of this valve. One is stenosis or narrowing and the other is leakiness. In isolation, tricuspid valve disease is usually well tolerated. When it is combined with other heart lesions, various problems can occur resulting in decreased cardiac output and peripheral edema. ...Read more

Mostly indirectly: Acute leukemia can cause anemia (bleeding or low production) which if severe leads to low blood pressure, fast heart rate, stressing the heart and may lead to congestive heart failure. Infection and sepsis can happen leading to shock and rapid death if untreated. The treatment of leukemia may involve drugs that affect the heart and multiple blood transfusions that can cause fluid overload. ...Read more
