What Is The Percentage Of Cardiac Output Delivered To The Heart
What happens to cardiac output and after load when when heart rate is low? does it increase because high heart rate causes decrease in CO
What to do if a transplanted heart has no nerve supply, how does the cardiac output of a transplanted heart increase and adapt to physiological changes?
Echocardiography: There are other modalities that can calculate "heart strength" (how well is the heart pumping blood) and cardiac output (how many liters of blood are pumped per minute) but the most accessible and non-invasive is an echo. By measuring the heart when full of blood and then when fully contracted you can estimate the effectiveness of the "squeeze" as well as the volume pumped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure associated with decreased cardiac output?
Swelling: The left side of the heart pumps blood throughout your body. When it fails, it decreases blood flow to organs. This can cause kidney injury, liver injury, fatigue, shortness of breath with little exertion, swelling of the feet and legs, fluid build-up in the lungs, and difficulty sleeping flat due to shortness of breath. Medications and diet are important for this disease! ...Read more
What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due associated with decreased cardiac output?
Congestion: Breathlessness, especially with exertion. Easy fatigability. Impaired exercise capacity. These are early signs. Without treatment, one becomes short of breath resting, especially when lying down (orthopnea) and at night (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Eventually the right heart also fails leading to swelling (edema), abdominal fluid (ascites and effusions), and cachexia (wasting). ...Read more
