    the disease than difficulty walking and cognitive decline (Alzheimer 's Association, 2016). Older adults showed slower than normal movements in general (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2016). There are many other disorders and conditions that can occur in addition to hydrocephalus. An example of this is epilepsy; a disorder in the central nervous system which is characterized by recurrent electrical disturbances in the brain. Symptoms of this disorder may include loss of consciousness, convulsions, spasms, and sensory confusion. Attacks are frequently preceded by strange behavior and feelings of uneasiness or discomfort. Similarly, meningitis can develop; an infection that causes inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain. Symptoms may include a general feeling of ill health, nausea, abdominal pain, along with stiffness in the back and neck. Others conditions involved with hydrocephalus include hematomas, brain tumors, strokes, and dementia. There is currently no known way to prevent or cure hydrocephalus. The most common treatment for hydrocephalus is surgical implantation of a shunt. A shunt is a flexible tube placed into the ventricular system of the brain which diverts the flow of cerebrospinal fluid to another region of the body most often the abdominal cavity, where it can then be absorbed. A valve within the shunt maintains cerebrospinal fluid pressure at normal levels within the ventricles (2Hydrocephalus Association, n.d.). Shunts are s a delicate piece of…

  • Elaborative Rehearsal Essay

    caused from a premature atrial complex. I remember this as “aberrant, randomly present”. There are three hearts blocks that you must differentiate through their similarities. A first-degree heart block, has a p-wave that measure longer through each complex. I remember this as “long, longer, drop”. The second-degree heart block, has two p-waves per complex with equal measurements, it’s the “twin block”. The third-degree heart block is a fatal rhythm it will have non-correlating and multiple…

  • CPR/Aed Education Program Analysis

    access to emergency devices and to provide funding for AED/CPR trainings in rural areas, and Cintas Scholastic AED program to provide grants to public school that needs more access to AEDs. Since the lead of American death is heart disease this is what we should do, train citizens to have the knowledge of CPR uses and AED uses. Having the knowledge of CPR/AED should be the base course for schools as a health course, because not only this skill can be used in school, it can also be useful in the…

  • Ventral Vs Dorsal Difference

    center. f. Ipsilateral vs. Contralateral- Ipsilateral are body parts on equal sections of the body. Contralateral are body parts on opposite sections of the body. The difference between the two is that the Ipsilateral will send materials to the same side while the Contralateral will send materials to the opposite side. g. Tract vs. Nerve- Tracts are a group of axons in the Central Nervous System. Nerves are a group of axons in the Peripheral Nervous System. The difference between the two is…

  • Ventricular Contraction Essay

    Premature Ventricular Contractions (Pvcs) Overview- Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are abnormal, extra heart-rates that initiate in ventricles, one of your heart's two lower pumping chambers. These additional pulsates disturb your normal heart musicality, in some cases making you feel a flip-flop or skipped beat in your chest. Premature ventricular contractions are extremely normal, mainly it occurs in most of the people at some time. If you are infected by ventricular constrictions,…

  • Mechanical Ventilation Research Paper

    Mechanical Ventilation and the Effects on the Cardiopulmonary and Renal Systems Amanda K. Godshall West Chester University Abstract The important objective of this paper is to explore mechanical ventilation and the many effects it has on a patient’s organ systems. The cardiovascular system can be affected along with the pulmonary and renal systems. Cardiovascular side effects depend upon the previous underlying cardiopulmonary status of each patient. Conditions pertaining to…

  • In Vitro

    The mock circulatory loop is a representation of the cardiovascular circulatory system as bench top system (In Vitro). The Mock Circulatory Loop (MCL) gives the designers of medical devices, a platform to test their devices in a flow loop system with specifications similar to that of a human cardiovascular system. Various designers of mock circulatory loops have come with their designs of the mock circulatory flow loop that represents the cardio vascular flow of blood through the heart. The…

  • Pulse Pressure Essay

    the heart works very hard to supply more oxygen to the body. In return, the cardiac output is higher and eventually it will increase the pulse pressure. But in some cases, there’s a condition where the pulse pressure is high even at rest condition. In this case, something is not right with the heart condition. This condition may be due to the stiffness of the major arteries. An example is atherosclerosis (hardening of blood vessel’s wall). CONCLUSION The major determinant of the pulse pressure…

    4) what is the final diagnosis of patient # 2 heart condition name the (disease)? Enlarge heart, heart failure hypertrophic cardiomyopathy because the thickened heart muscle and chambers are thick and stiff and don't allow heart to fill. 5) describe how G.L condition caused syncope following exercise? Exercises increases heart rate and stroke volume so cardiac output is high. But due to the fact that G.L has a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy his cardiac output is low because the lack of heart…

  • Capecitabine Suggestions: A Case Study

    vital signs (oxygen saturation on room air, respiratory rate, blood pressure, heart rate) were within normal limits. The ECG showed sinus rhythm 73 bpm, intermediate axis, ST elevation in leads II, III and aVF, presence of Q wave in the same leads and ST depression in leads I, aVL and V2. The laboratory results showed increased high-sensitivity troponin T levels (1.23 ng/mL [normal value < 0.014 ng/mL]). The echocardiography of the heart showed preserved left ventricular ejection fraction…
