Treatment Of Pansystolic Murmur
A heart murmur is a sound heard by a stethoscope made by the vibration of blood flow. It can be a normal finding in young healthy people, or can represent abnormal leakage (regurgitation) of a valve, valve narrowing (stenosis), or a congenital condition such as an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, ...Read more
Pumping Time!: The ventricles of the heart pump blood to the lungs and to the rest of the body. The portion of the cardiac cycle where they fill with blood is known as diastole. The portion where they contract to push that blood forward is known as systole. A murmur which occurs during this portion of the cardiac cycle is known as a systolic murmur. ...Read more
Heart murmur: A heart murmur is sound produced by an abnormal heart structure. Pansystolic murmur is one which continues throughout the whole heart contraction phase. The commonest pansystolic murmur is mitral insufficiency, others are ventricular septal defect and tricuspid insufficiency. There are others less common. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is treatment required for symptomatic bradycardia, heart rate 35, with bigeminal PVCs, normal blood pressure, no history of heart disease?
Cardiac auscultation identified an aortic systolic murmur no radiation, likely a flow murmur rather than stenosis of myopath what does this mean?
Means its: what we term a "FUNCTIONAL MURMUR" often heard in thin chested individuals NOT due to an obstruction (like STENOSIS) but WITHJN NORMAL LIMITS!) Hope this is helpful! Dr Z ...Read more
What is the treatment for isolated systolic hypertension? Diastolic in the 60-80 range systolic 140-180.
Multiple regimens: Depending on age, a systolic of 140-180 does not mandate treatment if the diastolic is low. Ace inhibitors and beta blockers would be first line treatments if needed. ...Read more
Holosystolic: A holosystolic murmur starts with the first heart sound and continues through the second heart sound. Typically these are caused by AV valve insufficiency or ventricular septal defects, they can also occur with aortopulmonary shunts. Arteriovenous fistulas have continuous murmurs associated but we call them bruits. ...Read more
Pulmonary stenosis: The pulmonary valve opens when the right ventricle contracts. This is during systole. So, if there is pulmonary stenosis, the murmur would be observed during systole. If the valve would be leaking, however, that would be heard when the valve is supposed to be closed or during diastole... ...Read more
Weak versus stiff: Congestive heart failure is a general term referring to when the heart is no longer available to pump blood effectively enough to support the needs of the body. Systolic failure is the more common situation where the heart pumps weakly, while diastolic failure refers to inability of the heart to relax and expand normally, as in the case of severe hypertrophy or muscular overgrowth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None, really: A murmur is a sound from flow in the heart. It can come from a lot of reasons. Symptoms, or how you feel, depend on what is actually going on with your heart. Lots of murmurs are totally normal. When you see your doctor, start with how you are doing or feeling, and if there is any change from before. This will help in the interpretation of your physical signs, like a murmur (if any). Be well! ...Read more
What is the standard treatment for someone with pfo, tricuspid valve leaking severely, congestive heart failure with high blood pressure & is nursing?
TAPSE: This is an attempt to measure right ventricular function. Unfortunately we don't have great success with this or other measures as independent useful indicators of RV function. They can be useful in certain clinical situations as part of an overall assessment trying to quantitate RV function. ...Read more
Harsh, Blowing: Mitral valve prolapse is commonly caused by rheumatic heart disease. The murmur is harsh, blowing, and holosystolic radiating from the apex of the heart to the axilla. It has a characteristic midsystolic click. It is often asymptomatic but can cause difficulty breathing at night, with exertion, or when laying down. Diagnosis is made with an echocardiogram. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
