Result of heart echo slightly hypertrophied in diastole with some diastolic dysfunction I don't understand im no doctor, HELP? I'm worried !

Blood pressure?

Heart
This is not my specialty, but maybe I can point you in the right direction. It sounds like you are seeing a cardiologist, which is the right thing to do. Common causes of this condition in a young person would be quiet, untreated high blood pressure, diabetes or both together. They make the main pump chamber in the heart work too hard. That's what one treats.

How much blood is left in left ventricle after diastole?

Depends....

Ejection_fraction
The EF (ejection fraction) is the percentage of blood ejected with each beat. Normal is 55-70%. EDV (end diastolic volume) is usually estimated by echocardiography using a biplane method of discs method using the apical 2 & 4 chamber views.

Dr. Howard Rubin answered:

What could cause the diastole number of your blood pressure to ge too high?

Diastolic BP

Blood_pressure
This is a measurement of the resistance of the blood vessels. The physiologic causes include high circulating renin which is a hormone that may come from the kidney. The high diastolic blood pressure can cause blood vessel damage in the brain, kidney, and heart muscle and needs to be lowered to less tha 90 to decrease the risk of such damage.

Could a healthy heart will pump out all the blood that entered its chambers during diastole?

Ejection fraction

Chest-heart
The normal ejection fraction from the heart is about 60% this means that a normal heart would leave 40% of its end diastolic volume still in the heart. Abnormal hearts have EF lower than 50%

Describe cardiac cycle and relate systole and diastole to the two numbers measuring blood pressure?

See below

Blood_pressure
Systolic blood pressure(top #) is the pressure measured when the heart is contacting(ejecting blood ) while diastolic pressure (bottom#) is the pressure when the heart is relaxing and filling with blood.

Just woke up and it felt like my heart was beating very strangely, equally spaced out systole/diastole, could hear both "beats" clearly. What was this?

Possible bigeminy.

Heart
When premature beats occur frequently so they form every other beat, it's possible to feel as though one is experiencing a pause every other beat; it might be that the sensation you describe is this phenomenon. Ones doctor can often hear the pattern by listening to ones heart. In addition, an EKG and Holter monitor test might be needed for accurate diagnosis.

Dr. John Garner answered:

What is advanced diastolic dysfunction with pseudonormal transmitral flow?

Stiff Heart

Breathlessness
Diastolic dysfunction, which means impaired relaxing or filling ability of the heart, was seen on your study. It's graded 1-4, with 4 being most severe. You have grade 2. It's usu caused by high blood pressure; other more rare things too. Symptoms range from mild shortness of breath to full blown heart failure or (for many) nothing at all. Use it as a wake up call to take care of yourself!

What is diastolic dysfunction ?

Stiff heart muscle

Cardiac
the heart muscle is scarred and stiff, so it doesn't relax well in between beats

What exactly is diastolic dysfunction?

Diastolic dysfunctio

Chest-heart
Good question....The heart in diastole relaxes and the fibers stretch out as the heart fills. When there is diastolic dysfunction the heart doesn't relax normally and it takes higher pressures to stretch out the fibers to where they can efficiently shorten for systole. This is somewhat oversimplified but hopefully gives you the general idea.....

Can diastolic dysfunction be seen on a cardiac MRI ?

Diastolic dysfunctio

Mri
MRI would not be a first choice test for diagnosing diastolic dysfunction. You can not really measure diastolic parameters well with it.
