What Does Inferior Ischemia Do To The Body
A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise( induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more
Other way 'round: Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Coronary ischemia: The body will try to limit activity in order to decrease ischemia, so some people will feel fatigue or shortness of breath. Also often people have angina or chest pain with activity which limits activity. On the local level small vessels called collateral vessels can grow to bypass the blockage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In what part of the body does uncontrolled hypertension most likely cause ischemia and loss of function?
Good question: Through biochemical mechanisms stimulated by decreased blood flow to areas of the heart, small collateral arteries can form as branches of the larger coronary arteries in order to maintain as much blood supply to the heart as possible. These collateral arteries can often prevent permanent damage to the heart, but they rarely normalize the blood flow necessary for normal heart function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What type of health issues include skin odor that recently and consistently smells like urine with an EKG that shows ischemia, increased WBC w/o fever severe fatigue, headaches and pain in the body?
Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CAD: Inferior wall ischemia is abnormal blood flow in the blood vessels to the inferior wall of the left ventricle. It is treated but no really cured. If one has symptomatic inferior wall ischemia not responding to medical therapy, often an interventional procedure or surgery can restore blood flow to the area. The diet, exercise and meds must continue for life however. ...Read more
