I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

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 more

What is inferior ischemia?

What is inferior ischemia?

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 more

What does inferior ischemia do to the body?

Sometime more nausea: Inferior ischemia is sometimes more often associated with nausea/vomiting and syncope due to heart block. These symptoms however are also seen in any cardiac ischemia. Read more

What is inferior basal ischemia?

What is inferior basal ischemia?

Ischemia means: Decreased blood flow. I'm not sure if u are referring to the inferior basal part of the heart or the basal ganglia in the brain. Wherever it is, it suggests impaired blood flow and circulation related to high blood pressure, aging, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking.Follow up with your dr. Take care! Read more

Hi doctors, can you tell me what is inferior septal ischemia?

Inadequate blood: It's lack of circulation affecting the lower portion of the interventricular septum (the wall separating the left and right ventricles). Read more

What is inferior cerebral ischemia can it be cured?

What is inferior cerebral ischemia can it be cured?

Poor blood flow: Inadequate blood flow to lower part of brain. It can improve with controlling BP & cholesterol, medications such as Aspirin and plavix, (clopidogrel) smoking cessation, heart healthy diet and exercise. Clot buster medication may be used within 90 minutes of an acute stroke and rarely angioplasty. Read more

How risky is ischemia?

Depends: It depends on how severe it is and which organ is ischemic. For instance it would be more serious to have ischemia to the heart or brain than to your foot. Read more

What is reversible ischemia?

What is reversible ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue: heart attack stroke amputation renal failure are sequellae of ischemia but mild is mild reversible means it was treated and improved. Read more

What are symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It depends on the part of the body that is not getting enough blood and oxygen. If it is the heart you could get chest pain. If it's a leg, leg pain. If it's the brain you could get a stroke. Read more

What symptoms suggest ischemia?

Pain: Ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow and circulation. This causes a significant decrease in oxygen delivery to the tissues that causes the tissues to undergo anaerobic metabolism. This then secretes Lactic Acid which causes pain. So pain is the first sign. Read more

What generally causes ischemia?

What generally causes ischemia?

Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. Read more

What are the causes of ischemia?

Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress.

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. Read more

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex. Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. Read more

What is an explanation of ischemia?

What is an explanation of ischemia?

Lack of enuff blood: "ischemia" = the normal tissue (eg heart, brain, intestine) is not receiving sufficient blood flow to supply the oxygen needed for the tissue's normal metabolic activity. For instance, ischemic heart muscle cannot contract normally. Cardiac ischemia is documented on a stress test, by using signs like EKG changes, flaccid heart muscle squeezing, or lack of uptake of nuclear tracer by heart muscle. Read more

What does ischemia cause in the body?

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.

What is the significance of ischemia?

See below: Ischemia implies insufficient blood flow. Myocardial (heart) ischemia is usually due to plaque obstructing blood flow. It can also be due to coronary artery spasm (especially in smokers). Ischemia often causes chest pains but can be painless (silent ischemia). Medical therapy is preferred to control risk factors. Invasive therapy such as angioplasty or bypass surgery is for unstable patients. Read more
