What is the difference between off-pump and on-pump coronary artery bypass?

What is the difference between off-pump and on-pump coronary artery bypass?

Off- moving heart with maybe less postop patency of the graf (skill dependent); less blood loss and transfusions; less neuro problems; less renal problems. Mortality the same.

My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

Pain free x 2-3 days: You shouldn't return to exercise until you've been pain free with activities of daily living for at least 2-3 days. Then, do so gradually and avoid painful exercises. I don't find over-the-counter topicals very effective, especially for low back pain where the source of pain is rarely very superficial. Oral anti-inflammatories tend to work more effectively. ...Read more

Omnipod insulin delivery system versus other insulin pumps, what's the difference?

Omnipod insulin delivery system versus other insulin pumps, what's the difference?

Patch pump: Hi. Omnipod is a "patch pump", meaning the pump attaches directly to your skin every 3 days, and there is no tubing attaching the pump to the infusion site like there is in traditional insulin pumps. There are plusses and minuses to both types of pumps, and neither type does anything for control you can't do with multiple daily injections using analog basal and bolus insulins. CGM is more vital. ...Read more

On an echo my heart was pumping at 66 but my heart rate was 100 as I was in AF. What's the difference and is 66 pumping ok?

On an echo my heart was pumping at 66 but my heart rate was 100 as I was in AF. What's the difference and is 66 pumping ok?

HR and EF: Most likely your heart rate was 100 and your ejection fraction (what percentage of blood volume your heart ejects per beat) is 66%. The later is normal. Your HR is elevated because of the atrial fibrillation. This can be further controlled with medicines if symptomatic. Consider a further discussion of atrial fibrillation and its implications with your cardiologist. ...Read more

Please help! What is the difference (including advantage and disadvantage) of off-pump and on-pump coronary artery bypass?

Very complicated.: Even after a lot fo studies, it is controversial. It depends on a lot of things. Some people have aortas that cannot be clamped or manipulated due to calcium. Off-pump bypass may be their only option. Other patients can't have off pump bypass. For most people, the decision should involve the patient, the surgeon, and other trusted physicians. ...Read more

How come water be pumped into the body of a person who is losing blood?

It's not water: What looks like water is actually saline, designed to be similar in electrolyte constitution to blood. It provides a replacement of lost fluid until blood can be obtained. Blood takes a while to obtain and may not be needed if the bleeding can be controlled. That is why saline fluids are used first. ...Read more

It's not like that.: Adrenaline (epinephrine) is produced in your adrenal glands and is an important signaling molecule in your autonomic nervous system. The word autonomic refers to the fact that it runs automatically, on its own, without any input from us. If you're referring to your energy levels, try a more balanced diet and better rest. ...Read more

Is juvederm a natural alternative for reducing wrinkles? I'd like to have some age lines and wrinkles filled in, but I don't want to pump my body full of chemicals. A co-worker told me that juvederm isn't really a drug, that it's some sort of sugar-water.

Juvederm: Juvederm is a drug that can only be administered by a physician or a trained nurse injector in your plastic surgeon's office. Juvederm injectable gel is composed of a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring sugar that is found in the body, but the hyaluronic acid in juvederm is cross-linked so it is more difficult for your body to break down, and hence it lasts for several months to a year. The product is used to fill in wrinkles in specific areas on your face. By adding volume, you get a smoother appearance. With any injectable product, there are risks including infection, pain, bruising, firmness, and lumps/bumps.

I noticed that I have these tiny white bumps around the head of my penis, my penis body looks a little swollen and there is a pumped vein what can it b?

Pearly papules?: Several percent of men have a row of bumps on the corona around the glans; they are picturesquely named "pearly penile papules". They're quite normal and perhaps a "plus", if you don't like them, there's laser removal. I'll bet this is what they are. Every guy has veins and looks swollen sometimes. ...Read more

I was diagnosed scabies for 10 days now, applied twice permethrine 5%, pumps still come out every day, now cover my whole body, itching is it normal?

Yes (with a catch): The bumps on your skin and the itching are due to your immune system's reaction to the presence of the mite--not directly due to the mite itself. It takes a while for the immune system to "settle down" after the infestation is treated, so you can continue to have symptoms for up to a few weeks after treatment. However, reinfestation is common if your close contacts haven't been treated. ...Read more

I've been with a competitive swimming team for almost 5 years and my resting heart rate still 66-72 I know that there's something wrong cause there should be some improvement in the pumping power?

HR is complex: The factors that determine your resting heart rate are complex. Being fit does not necessarily mean that your resting heart rate will be less than 60 bpm, although elite athletes often have low resting heart rates. Resting heart rate is determined by oxygen demand, cardiac efficiency, and autonomic tone, all of which can be affected by various factors. It would be wrong to over focus on hr. ...Read more
