This oxygen-rich blood then enters the left atrium and is pumped into the left ventricle, which pumps blood through the aorta to all the organs and tissues of the body” (Blaser). That is the structure of the heart, and that so happens to be the most important organ in an organism’s body. The heart helps people get oxygen, keep the organs alive, and it keeps us alive. If this major organ fails and has problems, them that will be really bad. Although There are other major problems in the health world, cardiac problems should be prioritized by doctors.
Medical staff should have good knowledge about advanced life support before undergoing advanced drug administration, rapid sequence intubation and cardiac resuscitation. It is very important that every medical personnel [Doctor, Anesthesia, paramedics and Nurses] who are prone to emergency should have stand by everywhere and time to save life, and improve the quality of cardiac resuscitation. At least the Doctors, anesthesia, Paramedics and Nurses staff must be predetermined about the need of resuscitation, by considering risk factors like hypoxia, hypothermia, hypoglycemia, acidosis and traumas. Because frequently facing life threatening situations [Boonmak P, Boonmak S,2004]
Bioprosthetic valves used in heart valve replacement generally offer functional properties that are more similar to those of native valves. Implantation of prosthetic cardiac valves to treat hemodynamically significant aortic or mitral valve disease has become increasingly common. Replacement of diseased valves with prosthetic heart valves reduces the morbidity and mortality associated with native valvular disease, but it comes at the expense of risking complications related to the implanted prosthetic device. Blood flowing in and out of the heart must pass through the heart valves. The valves allow the blood to flow through the valves, but prevent the occurrence of backflow.
Cardiovascular Surgeon One of the most fascinating things in the world is the heart. The heart is what makes your whole body work, it takes your oxygen and sends it to other organs on your body. How would you like to go to work everyday and touch a heart, and save a life, a two and one win. When you are in the OR ( operation room ) you 're saving lives with your hands. school is very important when you 're trying to be a surgeon.
Transducer may be swept mechanically by either rotating or swinging. Or a 1D phased array transducer may be use to sweep the beam electronically. The received data is processed and used to construct the image. Doppler ultrasonography is used to study blood flow, heart contractility, see inferior vena cava fullness, muscle motion, to do a DVT scan in ICU, regional blocks . The different detected speeds are represented in colour for ease of interpretation, like leaky heart valves: the leak shows up as a flash of unique colour.
Introduction There is no use denying the fact that the sphere of medicine is one of the most important spheres which guarantee existence of human society and mankind. Since ancient times it helped to cure different diseases and protect the life of people. Going along with society, it has achieved a great progress and modern specialists in the sphere of medicine are able to do a lot of things which save lives of patients and help them to recover. Thus, unfortunately, even this progress is not the guaranty of the absence of mistakes which lead to the death of a patient. Medication mistakes nowadays is one of the main reasons of deaths in hospitals.
Do you want to live your whole life in fear or do you want to be safe? Vaccines can help you be safe because they help protect you from dangerous diseases that are spreading. Vaccines don’t only help you, they also help your family, future generations and even the people around you anywhere. Vaccines are an injection into your body to help make your body immune to harmful diseases. Vaccines are good for society because they save lives, they save people time and money, and they are safe.
Abstract Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal has been widely used for heart diagnosis. This paper presents a VLSI based design of high speed and area efficient distributive arithmetic discrete wavelet transform (DA-DWT) for Arrhythmia Detection and its FPGA implementation. The main focus of the work is to filter and detect the QRS complex in the ECG signal and to identify the time and frequency variations. By comparing these variations with that of the variations in the normal ECG waveform one may reach to a conclusion if the patient is suffering from Arrhythmia or not. The DA-DWT is also used to filter the ECG signal so as to detect the ECG signal for Arrhythmia Detection.
The role of interventional radiology has played a significant part in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. There have been many advances with instrumentation, and equipment, promoting excellent care to patients in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Ultrasound has been an exceptional tool in assisting physicians with selection of coronary balloons, and stents for percutaneous coronary interventions. As a critical piece of data collection, ultrasound measurements have emerged as a frontrunner in evaluating vessel diameter and intra-lumen irregularities. This measurement and visualization has become paramount in the cardiac arena, when choosing proper sizing for stent selection.
The use of fractionated blood products enabled not only better targeted interventions but the efficiency in the use of blood units as well (Giangrande, 2000). Safe blood transfusion is important life-saving procedure, but it has its good and bad sides. Without it, patients would die or their recovery
