Parent Category: Health
Cardiovascular means anything of, relating to, or involving the heart and the blood vessels (arteries and veins) A healthy heart and circulatory system is vital to life. Ask questions here about how to keep the cardiovascular system pumping.
In general, the walls of arteries are thicker than those of veins. The tunic media in particular tends to be much heavier and contains substantially more smooth muscle and elastic tissue. This anatomical difference reflects a functional diffeerence in the 2 types of vessels. Arteries, which are...
Oxygenated blood is the blood remaining after the oxygen intake by  the body from the blood. And than oxygenated blood goes to Lungs  and heart with enrich with oxygen for the body.
Too much cholesterol in the blood, or high blood cholesterol, can  be serious. People with high blood cholesterol have a greater  chance of getting heart disease. High blood cholesterol itself does  not cause symptoms, so many people are unaware that their  cholesterol level is too high.
Yes because of the lack of blood circulating the body. But it  depends how low it is. See your doctor for any concerns.
The normal blood sugar level for kids is 60-100 mg/dL.
The diastolic is Low, And the systolic is fine. 128 is the systolic  and 58 is the diastolic.
It may affect on heart rate through autonomic nervous system
A rapid heart rate is due to intense activities like running,  playing, even walking etc. Or some times due to hypertension and  abnormal body condition.
nothing that's why they made a pace maker well they did have a machine you were hooked up to and if your heart stoped it shocked you i don't know what its though
a body of mass 50kg is placed on a wall of height 1.5m above the  ground.calculate the potential energy of the body(g_10mls2)
That vein is called the pulmonary vein.(pulmon)- lungs
In QRS wave, P wave shows atrial contraction or depolarisation  whereas, T wave shows ventricular repolarisation.
Beta blockers are used to reduce or slow down the heart rate by  blocking the effect of the hormone adrenaline.
Both sides of the heart pump blood but the right side is smaller because it has to produce less pressure because of the short distance to the lungs.
 A frog's heart rate can be anywhere from 40 to 50 beats per  minute.

The heart does not have enough time between contractions to fill with enough blood to maintain adequate cardiac output. This is especially a concern because the heart itself is perfused during diastole (the period between ventricular contractions).
no it is not because you have to cut down on sugars.
For most adults, your blood pressure should run between 100-160 on  top. The bottom number should be between 55-90. Check your blood  pressure after resting for at least five minutes, when sitting  comfortably with your feet flat on the floor. If your blood  pressure is running outside the above...
i did not understand your question well, but there are three wave  in working heart i a second:   1-P wave:its about 0.1 second and contraction of the Atriums   2-QRS wave: its about 0.4 second and contraction of the bellies.   3-T wave:its about 0.5 second and relaxing of the heart..
Yes, that blood pressure sounds normal. For most people, normal is  between 100-160 on top, between 55-90 on the bottom. Make sure you  check your blood pressure after resting about five minutes for an  accurate reading.

Digoxin is a prescription medication used to treat certain heart  conditions. It's mostly used for atrial fibrillation, but has also  been known to treat heart failure.
Homocysteine is an amino acid your body uses to make protein  and to build and maintain tissue. But high levels of  homocysteine may increase your risk of coronary artery  disease.
it helps by pulling the lungs
T-tubules are at the Z line and include diads instead of triads. Cardiac muscle is also single nucleated cells. Cell junctions exist as intercalated disks. Action potential excitation requires a pre calcium stimulation from extracellular sources. It them opens Ca++ channels in the sarcoplasmic...
The normal heart rate for adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute. A  41 year old should have a heart rate in this range.
yes, 65 beats per minute is a normal and good heart rate fora 39  year old female
Blood pressure is read in two parts, diastolic and systolic. It is documented as diastolic/systolic, example, a normal blood pressure is 120/80.
Scientists have found the reason why our body temperature is 37°C. Apparently it’s the perfect balance, as it’s warm enough to prevent fungal infection but not so hot that we need to eat nonstop to maintain our metabolism.http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2011/01/why-the-human-body-temperature-is-37...
why you should not take a blood pressure in a patient who has  lessened circulation in his or her arm
  It's called the Pleural Membrane.The ribs surround the lungs in the thorasica cavity.Pleuralvisceral lung pleura. parietal pleura lines the thoracic wall and diaphragm.it is the pleuraThe membranes that surround the lungs are collectively called the Plurae.Pleura?
Because whatever the mother puts in her body will be transferred over to the baby. The umbilical cord is like an extension cord dining from the mother to the baby transferring blood oxygen and sustenance. So when the mother takes the drugs they enter her blood stream and will be pumped to the baby...
Chest flutters are also know as PVCs or Premature Ventricular  Contractions. The can be caused from anxiety, fatigue, too much  exercise.
The P wave represents the wave of atrial depolarization and the t-wave represents the re-polarization.
The arteries and veins in an umbilical cord are different from the  vessels in the rest of the body. These are more numerous and much  thinner.
Top number is the systolic. For example 120/80 120 would be your systolic number.
Rest or sleep, Depressant drugs, shock, dehydration, hemorrage (excessive loss of blood), and fasting (not eating).
  What is normal apical rate?
The pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein originates in the heart. What is different about them is that the pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood (blood without oxygen) as supposed to other arteries, which carry oxygenated blood. And the pulmonary vein carries oxygenated blood unlike other veins...
On average, when sick, or healthy?
Your  heart speeds up to pump extra food and oxygen to the muscles.  Breathing speeds up to get more oxygen and to get rid of more  carbon dioxide. When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercises  the  pulse rate, breathing  rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in an ...
You can have a good heart by doing exercises and about of cardio .  For example you can do spinning   Answer 2: Talk to any doctor and they will tell you light, moderate  exercise for a healthy heart. Walking is the very best exercise  because it uses all muscle groups in the body. By all...
Pulses include the carotid on both sides of the neck, the brachial in the upper arm, the radial at the wrist, the femoral in the groin, the popliteal behind the knee, and the dorsalis pedis on the top of each foot. Although pulsations can be felt at the temple (temporal), this site is generally not...
  No, Ultrasound is a specialty and requires more education than an x-ray tech.
endurance athletes have significantly lower heart rates than most other people

Capillariasis is a parasitic infection. The infection is caused by  several types of nematodes: flatworms such as liver flukes, and  roundworms.
no its not a normal rate would be about 70-90 beats per minute
Upper chambers are called the right atrium and left atrium. Lower  chambers are referred to as the right ventricle and left ventricle.
Angina is best treated with rehabilitation and lifestyle changes.  Some medicines, such as nitroglycerin can also be used as a  treatment option.
high altitudes = less oxygen = the athletes get tired faster = faster training Example: an athlete running on low altitudes may run up to 2h before feeling tired an athlete running on high altitudes may run only up to 30 min before feeling tired = faster training
The normal heart rate for adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute. A  heart rate, or pulse, of 135 for a 60 year old is abnormal. This is  known as tachycardia.
Yes, a fetus heart rate is between 120-140 beats per min. Decrease heart rate is usually an indication of fetal distress. I would have this checked by a doctor.
Yes. The muscles work to help the heart and the rest of the body. Thanks for looking up this question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!XOXO
Sorry I cannot answer your question, but if you are worried about a heart attack your probably wrong. Most likely people who think they have heart attacks are just anxious enough to convince themselves that they are sick. Just in case you are worried about your health.

lasix!!!   Lasix is not the best way to lower pulmonary wedge pressure. Contrary to popular belief, Lasix has no direct impact on the lungs. You have to find out what is causing the high pressure in the lungs... If it is caused by congestion on the vascular system lasix would be a second or third...
I thought I was one night when I got a really hot one. Now are you talking about rubbing this in your eye or sticking it in there. Neither is recommended.

Adderall is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. One of the side effects is an accelerated heartbeat and increase in blood pressure. You should discuss any side effects with your doctor. If you are taking it illegally, without a prescription, at least have your blood pressure checked. If it is...
The younger you are the more BPM you will have. At age 17, 100+ BPM would be normal. FYI:Maximum heart rate is apprx. 220 minus your age! (i.e.: 220-age17=203max heart rate)
Headaches are the pooling of blood in the head so yes if it pumps to much blood their then it could.
Chest tubes are used to drain fluid and air from around the heart after heart surgery. Some patients call them "garden hoses" because they big hose like tubes that are the first thing the patient notices when they wake up. Surgeons tend to choose larger rather than smaller tubes because the small...
A desirable target would be 130 over 75.
Lung patients' palms turn blue because they are not getting enough  oxygen to their extremities. The vital organs are prioritized in  the distribution of limited oxygen.
