How can incomplete closure of the ductus arteriosus or foramen ovale affect my blood oxygen levels?

How can incomplete closure of the ductus arteriosus or foramen ovale affect my blood oxygen levels?

Variable: This depends largely on the size of the ductus arteriosus (pda) and the chronicity of the condition. At birth, if there is delayed closure of the pda, there should be no affect on oxygen levels. If the PDA is large, and long-standing, pulmonary vascular disease can develop (eisenmenger syndrome) resulting in decreased pulmonary blood flow and lower blood oxygen levels. This rarely occurs. ...Read more

True?False? Laying on ur back during pregnancy slows the return of blood to the heart which reduces blood flow to the fetus less oxygen less nutrients

True?False? Laying on ur back during pregnancy slows the return of blood to the heart which reduces blood flow to the fetus less oxygen less nutrients

Depends: early in pregnancy lying on your back is fine. Later in the third trimester some women may be advised to lay on their left side to reduce blood pressure or in cases of poor fetal growth. However, for most women lying on your back is compensated with an increase in your pulse and the oxygen level to the baby is fine. So, for some this is true, but in general is false. ...Read more

What might result from inadequate oxygen supply to the brain during birth?

What might result from inadequate oxygen supply to the brain during birth?

Many problems: Many things can result from birth hypoxia: from nothing to severe cerebral palsy and death. Learning problems, behavioral problems, adhd, seizures occur at increased rates in neonatal hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) . Not a good thing to have. If your baby suffered hypoxemia at birth, have her/him watched carefully by the pediatrician for the above problems. ...Read more

Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?

Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?

Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time.I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately.If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more

How could a high heart rate influence coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

How could a high heart rate influence coronary artery perfusion and myocardial oxygen delivery?

Decrease: In coronary perfusion pressure due to shortened diastole. Oxygen demand is increased but perfusion may not keep up if there is narrowing of coronary artery ...Read more

Does blood flow to the lungs increase during physical exercise?

Yes: Blood flow to heart & lungs increase during exercise in order to improve oxygenation of muscles. Blood flow also increases to remove metabolic waste which you can feel as "burn" sensation after strenuous exercise. ...Read more

Could low oxygen (decreased lung expansion) decreases cardiac output?

Could low oxygen (decreased lung expansion) decreases cardiac output?

Possible: The heart needs oxygen as fuel to do its job. If oxygen is very low, the heart may not pump as well. ...Read more

Do beta-blockers decrease cerebral blood flow? What meds increase cerebral blood flow through cerebral vasodilation?

Do beta-blockers decrease cerebral blood flow?  What meds increase cerebral blood flow through cerebral vasodilation?

NO: Betablockers do not reduce cerebral blood flow. Medicines that dilate cerebral blood vessels, like nitrates, cause headache. The brain has a mechanism called "autoregulation" that keeps flow constant. ...Read more

Help docs, is hyperbaric oxygen therapy the same as breathing oxygen through an oxygen tank?

Hyperbaric vs oxygen: No, it is not. Oxygen with a mask or nasal cannula supplied by a tank is not delivered under pressure. Hyperbaric chambers deliver oxygen under pressure so that the level of oxygen in the body tissues exceeds those values that oxygen is delivered via sea level. ...Read more
