Atrial Fibrilation is described by Mayo Clinic as “an irregular and often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow to the body.” “During atrial fibrillation, the heart's two upper chambers (the atria) beat chaotically and irregularly — out of coordination with the two lower chambers (the ventricles) of the heart. Atrial fibrillation symptoms often include heart palpitations, shortness of breath and weakness. Episodes of atrial fibrillation can come and go, or you may develop atrial fibrillation that doesn't go away and may require treatment. Although atrial fibrillation itself usually isn't life-threatening, it is a serious medical condition that sometimes requires emergency treatment. It can lead to complications.
They have either suffered a myocardial infarction or simply had angina (chest pain) that was evaluated with coronary angiography. CAD was noted during the angiography. Other tests are used to help diagnose CAD, electrocardiogram (ECG), stress test, echocardiogram, and blood tests. Treatment includes medicines, lifestyle changes, change in diet, and medical procedures. Treatments can be considered as preventions as well.
Bowel Obstruction A bowel obstruction happens when either your small or large intestine is partly or completely blocked. The blockage prevents food, fluids, and gas from moving through the intestines in the normal way, the blockage may cause severe pain that comes and goes. Bowel obstruction covers a blockage caused by tumors, scar tissue, or twisting or narrowing of the intestines. It does not cover ileus, which most commonly happens after surgery on the belly (abdominal surgery). Tumors, scar tissue (adhesions), or twisting or narrowing of the intestines can cause a bowel obstruction.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or also referred to as Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), a heart disease that develops when your coronary arteries, the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients become damaged. CHD is a term used commonly for buildup of plaque in the hearts arteries that could lead to heart attack. Cholesterol containing deposits, also known as plaque on your arteries is to blame for CAD. With CAD, the plaque starts to first grow in the coronary arteries until blood flow to the heart’s muscle becomes limited, in other words, ischemia. It could be chronic and is caused by the narrowing of the coronary artery and limitation of blood supply to part of the muscle.
Doctors can also do it to remove growths from inside the esophagus, stomach and the small intestine. However, there are many more reasons for a GI endoscopy. Question 5, who performs the procedure? Doctors who specialize in the digestive system called a Gastroenterologist. Some family medicine doctors, internist and surgeons can also perform a UGE.
HEART FAILURE This is also referred to as Congestive heart failure. it is a clinical syndrome which occurs when the heart is unable to pump sufficient amount of blood to meet the metabolic requirement of the tissue for oxygen. It can also result from structural cardiac abnormalities which impair the ability of the ventricle to fill or eject blood. The heart is weakened and cannot pump enough blood as strongly as before this implies that less oxygen is reaching the organs and muscles which can cause tiredness or shortness of breath. Etiology of cardiac failure: • Systemic hypertension-The most common cause in 75% of cases • Changes in the structure of the heart -changes in the valves causes volume and pressure overload • Disease conditions-valvular
The patient is also receiving multiple courses of respiratory treatment, including vest therapy, cough assistance and nebulizer treatments. Hypoxemia: Abnormally low levels of oxygen in the blood. Hypoxemia may be mild to severe and leads to shortness of breath. Low blood oxygen can result from a variety of conditions that affect either the ability of the heart to pump blood to the lungs to receive oxygen or the function of the lungs themselves. Cerebral hypoxia can be caused by any event that severely
In some cases gallstones may be removed to relieve blockage of the pancreatic duct. In the most severe cases, surgery is needed to remove dead or infected pancreatic tissue. Complications from acute pancreatitis include acute kidney failure, ARDS, ascites, Cysts or abscesses in the pancreas, and heart failure. Repeat episodes can lead to chronic pancreatitis.

* Pain when urinating * Constipation. There are many physical exams that can be use to check for vaginal cancer. A physical exam is a test of the body to check for health, diseases, and any cancerous lumps. These are some of the test: * Pelvic exam: An exam of the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and rectum. The doctor or nurse inserts one or two lubricated, gloved fingers of one hand into the vagina and places the other hand over the lower abdomen to feel the size, shape, and position of the uterus and ovaries.
