What is Cardiopulmonary resuscitation???

cardiopulmonary resuscitation are established in many countries and are the starting point of a strict application of the established and proven method in reviving people. These guidelines represent an obligation for physicians and have their weight in the Report any court proceedings. The main goal of the rescue promptly and safely re-establish proper function of breathing and blood circulation , as well as quick analysis of cardiac rhythm which is so near tachycardia rhythm disturbances allows early administration of defibrillators . When a failure occurs due to circulatory disorders of…

What is an intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP). How does it work as a circulatory assist device?

1)a large bore catheter with a long sausage-shaped balloon at the distal tip! 2) a console containing a pump that inflates the balloon! large bore catheter with a long sausage-shaped balloon at the distal tip, and a console containing a pump that inflates the balloon. The balloon is designed to sit in the proximal descending aorta. It comes in various lengths according to body height, with balloon volumes of about 30-50 mL. The balloon is usually filled with helium gas, and when inflated should fill up 80-90% of the aortic…

Pacemaker

Pacemaker   When the heart is very slow (usually less than 60 beats per minute), the body is not getting enough oxygen. Less oxygen causes symptoms such as dizziness, extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, or fainting. Condition when the heart rate is very slow, and when symptoms appear it is called bardycardia that can be cured with the pacemaker. The heart can not run very slowly for several reasons. Sick sinus syndrome (or sinus node dysfunction) occurs when the natural pacemaker the heart (sinus node) sends electrical signals very slowly….

What Is Coronary Bypass Surgery?

Bypass surgery What Is Coronary Bypass Surgery? Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is a heart operation. It uses blood vessels taken from another part of your body to go around or “bypass” blocked or narrowed coronary (heart) arteries. The surgery helps people whose coronary arteries have become narrowed or blocked by fatty material called plaque. The bypass allows more blood and oxygen to flow to the heart muscle. How do the arteries of your heart become blocked? Over time, fats, cholesterol and other substances can build up in the walls…

People and waves – History of Electrocardiography

Almost everyone recognizes the names of Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Michael Jordan, Bobby Jones, Elvis Presley, George Washington and Oliver Wendell Jones Jr. Most of the people who know these names not plan to participate in games of baseball, basketball or golf, or do not intend to become a rock star, politician or judge. People remember names, because they are interested in what they have achieved in their individual lives.   On the other hand, participants in medicine and medical specialists who interpret electrocardiograms know little about the important people who contributed…

ECG course step by step – Cardiovascular Physiology

Left and right side of the heart are separated by an internal wall of connective tissue called the cardiac septum (septum). Interatrijalniot septum separates the lev and the right atrium. Interventricular septum separates the lev and the right ventricle. Thus, the heart is divided into two functional stations.   The right atrium and right ventricle up a pump. Lev lev atrium and ventricle pump up the other. The right side of the heart is a low pressure system, whose job is to pump blood reduced the periphery of the body to the lungs, and through…

Right bundle branch block of the bundle (RBBB) – ECG course

Normal physiology of QRS formation The heart has specialized cells allowing five critical electrical and mechanical functions. Sinus node is the first of the five critical functions – the ability to create automated and regular heart rhythm. AV node represents the second critical feature – the ability to delay, and then conduct the electrical impulse between the atrium and ventricle. The right and left bundles of respective branches provide the third function – communication electrical impulse several billion cells in Levs and right ventricle, to ensure the simultaneous activation of both chambers. the right and left…
