    INTRODUCTION Cardiovascular disease is a general term that describes the disease of the heart or the blood vessels. These diseases can include many categories, some of which includes, angina, abnormal blood pressure for the age group, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, abnormal pulse, hypertensive emergency and others which will be discussed later on. The cardiovascular system is actually made up of a few parts, including the heart, blood and all the blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries)

    Running head: NSTEMI 1 NSTEMI 5 Non-ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction Randie Rains Columbia Basin College Description of NSTEMI A non-ST elevated myocardial infarction, sometimes referred to as NSTEMI, is best described as a heart attack, damaging the innermost layer of the heart. A heart attack or myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when the blood flow to the heart muscle has been obstructed, limited or reduced due to plaque accumulation inside the coronary arteries. Plaque buildup

    INTRODUCTION Chest pain is the most usual symptom at presentation in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), even if it ishighly subjective, and the pain characteristics, severity and emotional consequences may vary widely.1, 2 An asymptomatic AMI is not necessarily less severe than a symptomatic event. Diabetic and elderly subjects are those who generally present with a lower severity of chest pain and at the same time represent the subgroups of AMI patients withworse outcome.3 Chest pain

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction Case Study

    1049 Words  | 5 Pages

    ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION An acute MI occurs when myocardial cells have reached the threshold of ischemia; which in turn cause the body’s myocardial cell repair mechanism to first become overwhelmed and then to completely fail. When this mechanism fails, myocardial tissue necrosis causing irreparable tissue/cell death occurs. The following are possible contributors to myocardial ischemia and ultimately myocardial infarction (tissue necrosis and cell death): • Increased myocardial metabolic demand

    After the patient had this myocardial infarction, the patient s heart was already weakened and unable to efficiently work. The patient then had a severe heart attack the day of his admission which unfortunately crippled his heart and was unable to recover from the amount of damage that had been done by the last infarction. The amount of beta2 stimulants that was administered to the patient also increased his heart rate; along

    AH314-Pathophysiology Case Study 4 Myocardial Infarction K.R. is a 46-year-old man admitted to the emergency department with unremitting chest discomfort. The pain started while he was shoveling snow from his walkway. He had experienced chest discomfort with activity previously, but the pain had subsided with rest and he sought no medical help. This time the pain did not subside and became increasingly severe, radiating to his left arm and lower jaw. In the emergency department, an ECG and cardiac

    Myocardial Infraction Myocardial infraction (MI) or acute myocardial (AMI) well known as a heart attack, it happens when blood travels to the portion of the heart and this will end up causing the clotting of blood and the muscle of the heart suffers (Wood MA, Spores R, Natske LT, et al 1980). In explanation, the vsd evidently is caused when the walls of the ventricles fails to close appropriately through pregnancy and this will outcome in a high blood pressure owing to the is high volumes of blood

    that will make vitamin D has a positive influence on heart function. However, long term vitamin D deficiency can rise the production of PTH. This over production of PTH can cause valvular calcification, cardiac arrhythmia, arterial hypertension, myocardial calcification, and left ventricle hypertrophy. Vitamin D deficiency also can increase the rate of renin-angiotensin system. It has an important function in controlling blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and intravascular volume. However, vitamin

    Annually mortality from coronary heart disease claims an estimated 1.8 million lives in Europe, despite having fallen over recent decades (1). In the United Kingdom around 110,000 men and 65,000 women have an acute myocardial infarction every year, equivalent to one every three minutes (2). In 1772 William Heberden, the original describer of ‘angina pectoris’, recounted a case of a patient who clinically improved by working in the woods for half an hour each day. However, mobility limitations were

  • Myocardial Hypotension Case Study

    1037 Words  | 5 Pages

    INTRODUCTION: Although perioperative hypotension is a common problem, its true incidence is largely unknown.[1] There is evidence that postoperative outcome, including the incidence of myocardial adverse events, may be linked to the prolonged episodes of perioperative hypotension. Despite this, there are very few comprehensive resources available in the literature regarding diagnosis and management of these not so uncommon clinical occurrences, especially during non-cardiac surgery.[1] Perioperative

    Stroke due to a blood clot in the brain usually builds gradually around an atherosclerotic plaque. Myocardial infarction may also be caused by a thrombus in the coronary artery and is associated to the heart cells with ischemia. The reduced oxygen supply, as a result of the blockage, results in cell death and myocardial infarction Causes There are three main causes of thrombosis: hypercoagulability, injury to the endothelial cells of the blood vessel wall and abnormal

    CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the Study Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain among the top causes of global morbidity and mortality. The World Health Organization cited that cardiovascular diseases are responsible for 17.5 million deaths worldwide according to its latest survey in 2012—comprising about 46.2% of noncommunicable disease (NCD) deaths and surpassing mortalities from other leading NCDs, such as cancers (8.2 million), chronic respiratory diseases (4.0 million) and diabetes

    responsible for over three million deaths each year [2, 3]. Increases in concentrations of daily air pollution are associated with acute myocardial infarction [4] and admission to hospital or death from heart failure [5]. These associations could be mediated through the effects of exposure to air pollutants on vascular tone, endothelial function, thrombosis, and myocardial ischaemia [6–9]. Nanomaterials can enter the human body by different ways, such as breathing, eating and skin contact in humans. After

    The Cardiovascular System By: Shantinique Evans Kena Jefferson Shanelle Phillips Shanelle Cunningham Kthaw Mason-Lewis Roseville PN Cohort-5 The cardiovascular system can be thought of as a huge pumping station for the blood we use in our bodies. The human heart weighs about 11oz. The heart can pump nearly 1.5 gallons of blood through the body per minute. This hollow organ is made up od four hollow chambers that fill up with blood and pump it though the body. These chambers are called the left

    INTRODUCTION Periodontal diseases is a common infection which involves the periodontium. The periodontium are the tissues surrounding the tooth. Cardiovascular diseases on the other hand is a condition that involves the narrowing of blocked blood vessels that can lead to a series of conditions such as cardiac arrest, angina or stroke due to age, hypertension, diabetics, obesity, serum lipid concentration and abnormal habits. Periodontal diseases have been associated with cardiovascular diseases.

    and suddenly cuts off the flow of blood, the result is myocardial infarction. Congenital defects and spasms of a coronary artery may also block blood flow. There is evidence that infection from organisms such as chlamydia bacteria may be responsible for some cases of coronary artery disease. A number of major contributing factors increase

    Cardiac tamponade is one of the cardiac emergencies which necessitates an urgent diagnosis and treatment to restore haemodynamics. Causes of tamponade may vary in etiology however almost all of them have a common clinical presentation. Spontaneous hemopericardium leading to cardiac tamponade is an unusual manifestation of thrombocytopenia and to the best of our knowledge ,there is no case of thrombocytopenic tamponade mentioned in the literature. We report a case of 64-years-old female who presented
