  • Congenital Heart Disease Essay

    developed from birth though symptoms of the condition may not be present until adulthood. During the time of birth the closure of the ductus arteriosus (DA) should occur about 15 hours after birth though functional closure may be delayed for up to 3 months of life. Thus, an open DA is the functional indicator of congenital heart disease. The primitive heart tube undergoes adjustments in the first trimester to become the heart. The heart is made up of four chambers: the right atrium,…

  • Mitral Valve Regurgitation Essay

    Introduction Mitral valve regurgitation, also called mitral regurgitation, is a condition in which blood leaks from the mitral valve in the heart. The mitral valve is located between the upper left chamber of the heart (left atrium) and the lower left chamber of the heart (left ventricle). Normally, this valve opens when the atrium pumps blood into the ventricle, and it closes when the ventricle pumps blood out to the body. Mitral valve regurgitation happens when the mitral valve does not close…

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Case Study

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common form of feline cardiomyopathies. This disease affects the cardiovascular system. The heart has many important anatomical features. One of these being the ventricle of the heart. The ventricle of the heart is the main heart muscle that pumps blood. When HCM occurs the left ventricle within the heart thickens. When the thickening of the ventricle occurs there will be a decreased ventricular chamber volume, and abnormal ventricular relaxation.…

  • Pros And Cons Of Being An Athlete

    As expected, alterations to the left ventricle are associated with athletic training. LV enlargement and increased wall thickness are common finding among athletes. In endurance training, LV remodeling results in eccentric hypertrophy, which is an increase chamber dimension with an increase in wall thickness. Strength training results in concentric hypertrophy of the left ventricle which is described as thick walls with some dilation. Out of the two, concentric LVH is more common among athletes.…

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Congestive Heart Failure Heart failure is a progressive and chronic condition that occurs when the heart muscle is weak and unable to pump adequate blood in order to meet the need of the body for blood and oxygen (AHA, 2014). There are two types of Heart failure namely Left sided and right sided heart failure. According to Moore & Roth (2015), left-sided heart failure occurs when the left ventricle failed to pump proficiently. It prevents the body from receiving adequate oxygen-rich blood. The…

  • Athletic Heart Syndrome Analysis

    expected, alterations to the left ventricle are associated with athletic training. LV enlargement and increased wall thickness are typical findings among athletes. In endurance training, LV remodeling results in eccentric hypertrophy, which is an increase chamber dimension with an increase in wall thickness. Strength training results in concentric hypertrophy of the left ventricle which is described as thick walls with none or slight dilatation. Out of the two, concentric LVH is more common…

  • The Geriatric Cardiovascular System

    Data regarding the cardiovascular system of older adults is slightly limited, due to the fact that older people are usually not included in clinical trials. However, enough research has been done to identify common physiological changes in the geriatric cardiovascular system, such as: increased heart weight; decreased number of myocardial cells with enlargement of remaining cells; increased left ventricle wall thickness; increased arterial stiffness; increased elastin levels; increased collagen…

  • Electrocardiogram Lab

    The chambers include the right and left atrium as well as the right and left ventricle. The atrium receives blood from the venous system while the ventricles pump blood into the arterial system. These pumps are able to provide circulation out to the pulmonary (right pump) and systemic system (left pump). When conducting this lab experiment, it is important to be familiar with an electrocardiogram. An electrocardiogram measures the electrical activity of the heart. The electrocardiogram displays…

  • The Importance Of Exercise In The Human Body

    The decreased in resistance is caused by vasodilation done by specific metabolites like AMP, H+, and K+. Consequently, an increase in blood flow accords with a higher cardiac output that is determined by heart rate and stroke volume. At high work rate, cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart per minute) composed by the product of stroke volume (amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle per beat) and heart rate can reach up to 90% of theoretical maximum value as well as having…
