What is the after effect of ablation of the heart due to a palpitation?

What is the after effect of ablation of the heart due to a palpitation?

Improvement maybe: If the procedure is successful, the palpitations will not recur. Of course, if the procedure is not a success, the symptoms will recur. Then there are compkications such as stroke, tamponade (bleeding into the sac around the heart), and injury to blood vessels which may cause bleeding and may require surgical repair. ...Read more

Palpitation (Definition)

Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also ...Read more

What is the most effective test to determine the presence of old heart attack to any ventricle 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

What are the chances of death due to a heart palpitation?

What are the chances of death due to a heart palpitation?

Depends: Palpitations are an awareness of the beating of the heart. In some patients, there is no abnormality at all. In others benign premature contractions are found which are also benign. In some, supra ventricular arrhythmias are found which are benign and manageable. However, in some patients more worriesome rhythms are found and require additional work up. Please, see your physician. ...Read more

Is it a common to have the perfusion scan after the angiogram of the heart?

Yes: After an angiogram, the perfusion scan may be done prior to stenting to plan the revascularization procedure. In addition, the perfusion scan can be down a couple of years later to help assess response to therapy. ...Read more

I need help, is the lack of peristalsis in the esophagus the same as a paralyzed esophagus? If not, what is the medical term for the lack of peristals

I need help, is the lack of peristalsis in the esophagus the same as a paralyzed esophagus? If not, what is the medical term for the lack of peristals

Esophagus: Peristalsis is a coordinated normal contraction of the esophagus as a person swallows. It may sound like the word paralysis but it is a term used to describe a normal way the esophagus contracts and relaxes. The lack of peristalsis can be associated with swallowing difficulty. Physicians will diagnose the underlying causes using tests such as an endoscopy to take a look at the esophagus. ...Read more

What is the difference between the symptoms of pericarditis (that develops rapidly over the course of an hour) and a heart attack?

What is the difference between the symptoms of pericarditis (that develops rapidly over the course of an hour) and a heart attack?

Different: Pericarditis is worse with deep breath/cough. It hurts to shake your chest like the slap of your foot on the pavement when walking. It's worse lying on your back & better sitting forward. Heart attack can mimic this because some heart attacks have associated pericarditis, but in general, they feel different: heart attack usually is a squeezing, tight central feeling without change for hours. ...Read more

Is a v fib, where the bottom of the heat flutters and the blood does not go to the rest of the body, considered a heart attack?

Is a v fib, where the bottom of the heat flutters and the blood does not go to the rest of the body, considered a heart attack?

No: Ventricular fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) that can result from a heart attack. A heart attack implies a blockage of one of the coronary arteries resulting in lack of blood supply (and oxygen) to a portion of the heart. However, ventricular fibrillation has many other potential causes. ...Read more

What is the physiological cause of a heart attack?

What is the physiological cause of a heart attack?

Supply & demand: In simple terms, it is a mismatch between the supply of oxygen and nutrients to heart muscle and the needs/demands of the heart muscle. In effect, heart muscle suffocates. This can be caused by narrowed or blocked vessels (coronary arteries) limiting blood flow. Stress tests on treadmill increases work of heart and determine if you can increase supply to match demand. ...Read more

What is the disease where ventricular fibrillation happens all the time or a lot of the time?

What is the disease where ventricular fibrillation happens all the time or a lot of the time?

V-fib???: V-fib that lasts more than a few seconds is typically lethal and results in sudden death. Atrial fibrillation (a-fib) is a different thing entirely, which is a common heart rhythm abnormality. Some people live in constant afib, some people their afib is come-and-go. If it is afib you are referring to, it is commonly managed with a combination of medications and procedures. ...Read more

What is thachy_brady syndrome?Is it the cause of pacemaker implantation by the kind of pacemaker used? Single or dual chamber.Thank you

What is thachy_brady syndrome?Is it the cause of  pacemaker implantation by  the kind of  pacemaker  used?  Single or dual chamber.Thank you

Fast and slow!: Tachy-brady means sometimes the heart goes too fast and other times too slow. We need a pacemaker to prevent the slow beats so we can more safely give medication to control the fast beats. The type of pacemaker depends on what type of rhythms are involved. Usually it's dual chamber unless someone is in atrial fibrillation all the time. ...Read more

What are the medical causes/reasons to which a person dies of natural causes. Does the heart stop beating all of a sudden?

What are the medical causes/reasons to which a person dies of natural causes. Does the heart stop beating all of a sudden?

Yes: In any stage of death by natural causes, the end result is always asystole, or no heart beat. This causes brain damage and death within a few minutes. There are many reasons for death by natural causes, but the heart must stop beating for the final death process to start. Of course, people can be saved with advanced cardiac life support as is done every minute of every day in the usa. ...Read more

What is the actual cause of the 'hang over' feeling people get after a long night of drinking alcohol? What is happening in the body?

What is the normal pacemaker of the heart?

The sinus node: The sinus node is a group of specialized pacemaker cells that is located in the upper right atrium. These cells react to circulating chemicals, such as adrenaline, and there are nerve connections from the brain that modify the heart rate in response to the body's needs. ...Read more
