What is an apical impulse?
It is a brief early systolic outward thrust , followed by late systolic retraction felt by the palpating finger when the LV contracts and rotates , the LV apex and the adjacent interventricular septum hits against the chest wall. It is usually felt at the 5th left intercostal space just inside the mid clavicular line , lasting less than 30% of systole and occupying less than 3 square cms area.

It is the change of rate of momentum Impulse is the integral of force over time, it is measured inNewton-seconds. For instance a force of one Newton applied over onesecond will change the momentum, a force of two Newton's appliedover half of a second will have a similar effect. For rigid body coll…isions we take this to its limit and apply aninfinite force over an infinitesimally small time. This impulse isequal to the change in momentum of the colliding objects. Becausewe are talking about forces here, Newton's third law applies, andthe impulse on the colliding objects will be equal and opposite. impulse = m(vf- vi) In simple words: Impulse- A form of fast-moving electrical messages (MORE)
Impulse is change in momentum. Refer to the related link for more information and equations concerning change in momentum.
The apex angle is the angle in a cone that the apex, or point, ofthe cone takes. This is measured from two opposite sides of thecone, which is found by drawing a line from the apex to the centerof the circular base, then drawing a plane through this line andusing the lines of the plane's intersectio…n of the cone to measurethe angle.

The word impulses describes a strong and sudden desire to dosomething. It can also describe a motivation or drive to completesomething.
The systole is when the left ventricle contracts and produces a stroke volume that is felt as a pulse. This is part of the measurement of a blood pressure reading. The reason you hear the 'lubb' sound is because the ventricle contractions are stronger than the atrial contractions. The 'dupp' sou…nd is when the ventricles relax, so the sound is softer. Both sounds, or small upward blips on the sphygmomometer dial is due to the closing of, first, the atrioventricular valves for systole, and then the closing of the pulmonary semilunar valves for the diastole.

An apical meristem is of each root tip is a dividing zone that forms new cells in two directions. The meristem produces new cells in front of itself that become a loose fitting rootcap. Layers of cells in this cap are continually brushed off as the root elongates between soil particles. The cap is p…erpetually renewed by tiers od cells being formed and pushed down from the meristem.

A lung nodule is a node that can be from infection, scar tissue or tumor. Depending on the size, shape and character of the nodule we determine the likelihood of cancer. If we cannot rule the possibility of lung cancer, a larger nodule (or mass) may be biopsied either using a bronchoscope by a lung …doctor, or a needle biopsy under CT guidance by a radiologist for diagnosis in the least invasive way although there is a small chance of collapsing the lung.

It is normally located in the left fifth intercostal space, about 1 centimeter medial to the mid-clavicular line.. In children less than 7 years of age, the apex beat is located in the 4th intercostal space, lateral to the mid-clavicular line
he meristematic cells give rise to various organs of the plant, and keep the plant growing.
How to take an apical (a-pih-kull) pulse: The apical pulse is your heart rate when counted with a stethoscope (steth-uh-skop) placed over your heart. A watch with a second hand will be needed to take your apical pulse. The following steps may help you take your apical pulse.. You should sit up or …lie down. . Put the tips of the stethoscope into your ears. . Place the diaphragm (disk part) of the stethoscope over your heart. Your heart is found in the middle of your chest and toward the left side. . Count the beats for a full minute (60 seconds) when you hear your heartbeat. Notice if your heartbeat sounds strong, weak, or missing beats. (MORE)

A Myocradial ischemia is the decreased blood flow within the heartmuscle due to a blockage. This condition should be treated by amedical professional.
The Apical Anteroseptal wall is a thin wall and is a kinetic. Thiswall is thicken mildly during the process of systole.
Apical buds are those located at the end of stems; lateral buds are located in the leaf axils along the length of the stems. Apical dominance occurs when a branch tends to get longer and longer without sending off branching shoots. This occurs because of a substance called auxin which is produced in… the apical buds and which inhibits growth of stems from the lateral buds. (MORE)
An impulse refers to the change in momentum of an object, while animpulsive force is a relative term, used to refer a relativelylarge amount of force applied on a small object. Take into accountrelative force is relative.

Clear lung apices means that there is not defect found in the lung.Apices is the plural of apex which is the top part of the lung.
Apical dominance is a phenomenon seen in plants in which a central stem becomes dominant, growing faster than other stems and secreting hormones which inhibit stem growth below the terminal bud at the end of the apical stem. A number of plants and trees exhibitapical dominance, with fir trees being …a classic example. The distinctive triangular shape of the fir tree is the result of apical dominance, with the trunk of the tree being the apical stem. There are a number of reasons why plants adopt apical dominance. By pouring energy into a central stem, plants can achieve height quickly, which increases their access to nutrients and also helps the plant block competition. This phenomenon is also exhibited in rooting systems, where apical dominance results in a long, very strong taproot which keeps the plant firmly anchored in place, unlike a fibrous root system, which can make the plant unstable in some soils. The terminal bud on the apical stem secretes the hormone auxin, which blocks growth in lower stems. If it is removed or the circulation is inhibited, other stems below will start to shoot up, and one may in turn become apical. Apical dominance can also be seen in branches; branches which grow from the main stem will in turn inhibit the growth of smaller branches from stems along their length. (MORE)
A root apical meristem is protected by a root cap as it pushes through the abrasive soil. The root cap also secretes a polysaccharide slime that lubricates the soil around the tip of the root.

To FEEL for the apical pulse, the "equipment" required is either the fingers and or palm of the hand and a stopwatch or watch with a second hand to count the apical rate. The cardiac apical impulse or point of maximum impulse (PMI) is located along the mid-claviclar line approx. 7-9 cm (about 3") le…ft of the sternum within the 5th intercostal rib cage space just under the left breast. As for LISTENING to the apical pulse, one needs to emply the use of a stethoscope in order to auscultate the heart beat. The chestpiece of the stethoscope should be applied to the bare skin directly upon the PMI where heart sounds are the loudest. (MORE)
