It can lead to complications. Atrial fibrillation may lead to blood clots forming in the heart that may circulate to other organs and lead to blocked blood flow (ischemia)” The danger of this disorder is that the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to support the functioning of the body. There are some patients who will have some, all, or no symptoms at all. Some symptoms include: • “Palpitations, which are sensations of a racing, uncomfortable, irregular heartbeat or a flip-flopping in your chest • Weakness • Reduced ability to exercise • Fatigue • Lightheadedness • Dizziness • Confusion • Shortness of breath • Chest pain Atrial fibrillation may be: • Occasional. In this case it's called paroxysmal (par-ok-SIZ-mul) atrial fibrillation.
Also mentioned, is the increased risk of localized hypothermia and risk for infection as wet gauze to the wound can cause vasoconstriction and in theory, also decrease leukocyte mobility and efficiency of phagocytes. Gauze fibers may also be retained in the wound bed further increasing risk of infection. Lastly, the author suggests that the use of wet to dry dressings are not cost effective since they are labor intensive, require secondary dressings to contain exudate, and usually require nursing care within the community. The article closes by saying that further research is needed to fully understand the impact that dressing selection has in wound healing but suggests that practitioners should question the continued use of wet to dry dressings. Currently, Greenville Hospital System’s policy for healing of wounds by second intention is best met with the use of wet to dry dressings.
1) Coronary artery disease occurs when fatty deposits called plaque build up inside the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries wrap around the heart and supply it with blood and oxygen. When plaque builds up, it narrows the arteries and reduces the amount of blood that gets to your heart. This can lead to serious problems, including heart attack. 2) Coronary artery disease is usually caused by a build-up of fatty deposits on the walls of the coronary arteries.
Depending on its cause, pleurisy may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as, shortness of breath, fever and chills, rapid shallow breathing, unexplained weight loss, sore throat followed by pain and swelling in the joints, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, and vomiting blood. The inflammation of the pleura sometimes causes fluid to build up in the pleural cavity. This is known as pleural effusion. You may have less pain after this happens, because the fluid prevents the two layers of the pleura from rubbing together. If there is a large amount of fluid, it may prevent the lung from expanding when you breathe in.
Increased blood pressure can cause your blood vessels to weaken and bulge, forming an aneurysm. If an aneurysm ruptures, it can be life-threatening. Heart failure. To pump blood against the high pressure in your vessels, your heart muscle thickens. The thickened muscle may have a hard time pumping enough blood to meet your body’s needs, which can lead to heart failure.
7 / 12 damage or surgical injury. Ischemic pain caused by occlusive blood vessel illness is frequently serious and may not be diminished, even with opiates. The person with a fringe vascular infection may encounter ischemic pain only while exercising because the metabolic demands for oxygen cannot be met because of the blocked bloodstream. The ischemic torment of incomplete blood vessel impediment isn't as extreme as the sudden, excruciating pain related with finish impediment, for example, by an embolus or thrombus. The description of the pain may vary from throbbing, consuming, or prickling to a solid shooting pain.
The problem with Vasovagal Syncope is that falls and other types of injuries can occur during an episode. The person could need to see a doctor if they are occuring frequently enough, to rule out a heart problem. The symptoms of V.S. are also very dependent on the person. The most common things that happen right before a person faints are lightheadedness, tunnel vison and fuzzy thoughts/visual disturbances.
If the surface of the plaques break or rupture, blood cells, called platelets will clump or clot at that site to try and repair the artery. The clot or clump can block the artery which can lead to heart attack. There are several risk factors associated with CAD and could possibly build up on each other and make CAD an even greater risk. First, Men have a greater risk of CAD than women, although women’s risk of getting CAD increase after they go through menopause. As you get older, your age increases the risk of narrowed and damaged arteries, which of course leads to CAD.
This happens because the sudden elimination or decrease of a hormone in the body can lead to very serious health effects that can result to injury or even death. That is why discontinuation of anabolic steroids too quickly is an improper way to evade the effects of steroids as the withdrawal process comes with side effects of its own. These withdrawal symptoms are the long term effects that the athlete (steroid taking individual) will have to live with in the long run. Examples of some of these include apathy and depression, difficulty concentrating, insomnia, a decreased sex drive, joint and muscle pain &
The second main reason that people should stop using steroids is, because it can kill them. There are many ways steroids can kill you. Steroids can cause liver failure, high blood pressure, cancer, strokes caused by blood clots and most of all major heart attacks. The reason people have heart attacks from steroid use is because it makes your blood to thick to pump through your heart, causing your heart to work much harder than normal, and then causing the person to have a heart attack. The third main reason that people should not use steroids is because it causes many other health problems in their life.
