What Is The Pathophysiology Of The Defibrillator
Rhythm restoration: Assuming the problem is ventricular fibrillation, the chaotic and fatal cardiac arrhythmia, one must know there are hierarchies of pacemakers controlling the heart rhythm (fastest one usually wins). By shocking the heart into functional standstill, the next available fastest stable pacemaker tissue takes over, usually sinus node > ectopic atrial > junctional > idioventricular/purkinje. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Decr brain bloodflow: Syncope (loss of consciousness) is caused by reduced blood flow to the brain. Most cases are cardiogenic in nature (for example, arrhythmias), but other causes can include vasovagal response, carotid artery compression, vertebrobasilar system disease, etc. See your primary care provider for further discussion if you've experienced syncope. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/syncope/syncope.htm ...Read more
Many: Hypotension or low blood pressure can happen for a variety of reasons. Acute illness (i.e. Sepsis), adrenal gland insufficiency, overmedication, heart failure are just a few of the many reasons for low blood pressure. Additional causes can be volume depletion (orthostasis), or a variety of neurocardiogenic causes such as pots or similar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High insulin: Very common cause of hypoglycemia is high Insulin levels (almost always related to excess sugar and carb intake). Initially the high Insulin causes a reactive hypoglycemia, however over time, the chronically high Insulin levels lead to "insulin resistance". When your Insulin no longer works your blood sugars will rise and you develop diabetes. This is 100% preventable wi proper diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tetralogy of fallot: Is a congenital malformation. Uneven septation of the embryological troncus: small PA, larger Aorta with overriding the VSD , RV hypertrophy, presence of a VSD, Obstruction of the RV outflow, diminished blood flow to the lungs, usually requires an arterial shunt to the PA to increase blood flow in to the lungs, the surgery is done as neonatal. Total repair by the age of 4-5 years. ...Read more
Any irritant to the : ...Pericardium, whether infectious, traumatic , neoplastic, noxious and the like can initiate the mechanism of inflammation of the pericardium. Since this membrane covering the heart has pain fibers especially at the parietal aspect of it, pain signals are then upstream for the brain to sense them. The lining epithelium if the pericardium has pain fibers as well, including the epicardium. ...Read more
