Treatment For Hypokinesia Of The Heart
What is the most effective test to determine the presence of old heart attack to any ventricle of the heart?
Old heart attack: You should see a cardiologist. One thing they might do is an echo car diorama where they have a, look at the actual motion of the heart muscle and the flow of the blood through the heart. That should show if any part of the heart is not working right, like for instance from damage due to a heart attack. ...Read more
Depends on situation: First you must define rapid, as an infant may normally run rates of 90-180/min in various states of activity. If the rate is high for the activity, you identify the reason for a rapid rate and fix it.For dehydration you give fluids, for fever you reduce the fever. For infection you treat the infection. For a heart related issue, you must identify the problem to treat it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
First get to: A hospital via paramedics. Second take an Aspirin if you have one available. Please chew it. Once you get admitted depending on the presentation you will get either medicaly managed to start or you will be taken to the cath lab where you will have an angiogram and possibly placement of stents or angioplasty. Once this is done the treatment once again entails medical management. ...Read more
What is the treatment for cerebral infarct with reportedly 80% brain dead and what is the chance for survival and recovery of consciousness?
Stronger, slower: When the heart fails, it decreases blood flow to organs. This can cause kidney injury, liver injury, fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling, and fluid build-up in the lungs. Digoxin makes the heart contract stronger and slows the heart rate. This pushes more blood forward to the organs. Digoxin is not used much for heart failure anymore, but it is used to prevent abnormal heart rhythms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Heart failure : The heart consists of four chambers, left and right atriums, left and right ventricles. Left heart failure means the left ventricle fails to work, meaning failure to pump out the blood flow to meet the body demanding. It can be caused by cardiomyopathy, severe aortic stenosis or severe mitral valve regurgitation, etc. Essential HTN is opposite to secondary htn.That means no cause found now. ...Read more
Age Matched Activity: A transplanted heart that is working well will replace the functions of the failed heart. The recipient can do most things that others his/her age can do. There is something called the transplant olympics, and some recipients perform amazing things; you would be quite surprised at the number that have run marathons. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not easy: Unfortunately, our understanding and treatment of right heart failure is not at the level of left heart failure. One has to be careful with fluid management because in the case of right heart failure, you're actually dependent on volume to keep the function of the heart going, therefore, overly aggressive fluid management treatments often backfire. The balance is much more important here. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surgery/angioplasty: If aortic coarctation is severe enough to cause hypertension and/or heart failure, then treatments may include surgery or balloon angioplasty with or without aortic stenting. The choice of procedure depends on patient age, aortic arch anatomy, and co-existing cardiac and non-cardiac conditions. ...Read more
Can be: Rapid heart rate is definitely one of the constellation of symptoms of untreated heart failure. As the heart weakens, the only mechanism for it to maintain its output is to increase the rate, the feedback mechanisms in the body which dictate more cardiac output lead to the increased heart rate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
