Whats The Vertebral Level Of Right Atrium
Tricuspid Valve leak: The right atrium is 'the first chamber' of the heart where blood collects from the entire body. Blood then travels from the right atrium to the right ventricle through the 'tricuspid' valve. If there is any backflow of blood back through the tricuspid valve then that would cause the right atrium to enlarge. Since the enlargement is only mild then the valve insufficiency (leak) is probably mild. ...Read more
Can you tell me how the dlood entering the right atrium differ fom the blood entering the left atrium?
Circulation of blood: Heart is a pump,that works non stop,to keep you alive,and is divide in two sections,rt,.and left,all your activities and production of. Carbon dioxide,is carried by veins,transported to rt. atrium,to rt ventricle,thence to lungs,which exchanges co2 for oxygen,and from lungs taken to left atrium,ventricle and to the rest of body,this cycle goes on, ...Read more
Depends: Depends on the cause and the size of the chambers. ...Read more
How is an emboli able to traverse a patent foramen ovale if the net flow of blood is from left to right atrium?
Possible: The heart is a pump and a dynamic process. The net pressure is from high to low. But invariably with activity motion and changing in position the flow can switch transiently. If a clot is in the flow at that time then it can become an arterial emboli with all its consequences. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal shunt left to right atrium suggestive small atrial septal defect can this make the shunt also go right to left if so is it dangerous?
If RA>LA pressure: Shunt flow will direct from the higher pressure chamber to the lower pressure one. This usually results in left to right shunting across an asd. Over time, as flow into RA is increased, a corresponding increase in pulmonary blood flow will lead to pulmonary hypertension. The subsequent rise in right sided pressures will lead to reverse shunting (r to l) with cyanosis (eisenmenger). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
