See separate leaflet called 'Heart Failure'. What are the possible complications of aortic stenosis? • Heart failure may become severe and life threatening. • Endocarditis is an uncommon complication. This is an infection of the valve.
It is not clear whether these are from lupus itself or whether there related to the general stress and fatigue of having a chronic illness. More severe symptoms such as difficulty with memory loss, concentration, numbness or weakness of the arms and legs are not to common. People with this disease may also develop inflammation of the heart sac, which may cause severe or sudden pain on the center of the left side of the chest that may spread to the neck, back, shoulders or even arms. People may also develop inflammation around the lungs, which may cause a stabbing chest pain and coughing. Many people tend to lose weight when their disease is active.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Congestive Heart Failure or CHF is a severe circulatory congestion due to decreased myocardial contractility, which results in the heart’s inability to pump sufficient blood to meet the body’s needs. In general, causes can be classified according to the following: a. Volume overload may cause the right ventricle to hypertrophy to compensate for added volume. b. Pressure overload usually results from an obstructive lesion, such as COA c. Decrease contractility can result from problems such as sever anemia, asphyxia, heart block and acidemia.
The extra fluids build up in the legs, lungs, liver and around the eyes. This condition is known as congestive heart failure (CHF). Cardiomyopathy is an acquired or inherited condition of the heart muscles. The heart muscles become thicker or enlarged thus decreasing the ability of the heart to pump enough blood through the body (American Heart Association, 2013). In this paper the writer describes the best approach to care for Mr. P, who is hospitalized with
Some of the causes of CHF are weakened heart muscles, damaged heart valves, blocked blood vessels in the heart (which may lead to cardiac arrest), Exposure to alcohol or drug substances, high blood pressure, ongoing untreated arrhythmias, genetic diseases effecting the heart, and there are many other things that could cause CHF, this just lists a few. There are also a few causes that are done because of unhealthy habits such as smoking, obesity and lack of exercise, high sodium intake, excessive alcohol use, and noncompliance with medications and therapies directed by physicians. Those are the causes,
coronary heart disease Coronary heart disease is when our hearts blood supply is blocked by a build-up of fatty substances in the arteries. Over a period of time our arteries can become blocked by fats. Our arteries will then become narrow causing the amount of blood flow to our heart to be restricted. This can result in angina (chest pains). However if he arteries become completely blocked it can cause a heart attack.
Heart Bypass Surgery If you have blockage in one or more of your coronary arteries, your doctor may want to perform a heart bypass surgery. Coronary arteries are arteries that carry oxygen and nutrients in your blood. When your arteries become blocked your heart is not getting the blood supply that it needs. This is called ischemic heart disease and can often cause chest pain also known as Angina. Sometimes, heart bypass surgery is not the first treatment for ischemic heart disease.
Coronary heart disease is the narrowing of the small blood vessels which supply blood and oxygen to the heart. CAD is caused by the buildup of plaque in the arteries in your heart. Fatty material and other substances form plaque buildup in your arteries
Also if the person is hospitalised or needs surgery, poisoned from wrong medication, shock and disbelief. If someone is being physically abused then the effects are going to be mainly physical, such as bruising and cuts. There are also Long term effects. Abuse is a major source of stress and can have long-term effects on the health and well-being of older adults. The stress of abuse could trigger chest pain or angina, and may be a factor in other serious heart problems.
Rapid and irregular heart rates may be perceived as palpitations, exercise intolerance, and occasionally produce angina (if the rate is faster and puts the heart under strain) and congestive symptoms of shortness of breath or edema. Sometimes the arrhythmia will be identified only with the onset of a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA). It is not uncommon for a patient to first become aware of AF from a routine physical examination or ECG, as it may be asymptomatic in many cases.  As most cases of atrial fibrillation are secondary to other medical problems, the presence of chest pain or angina, symptoms of hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland) such as weight loss and diarrhea, and symptoms suggestive of lung disease would indicate an underlying cause. A history of stroke or TIA, as well as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, heart failure and rheumatic fever, may indicate whether someone with AF is at a higher risk of
