Cardiovascular Health

Parent Category: Health
Cardiovascular means anything of, relating to, or involving the heart and the blood vessels (arteries and veins) A healthy heart and circulatory system is vital to life. Ask questions here about how to keep the cardiovascular system pumping.
In general, the walls of arteries are thicker than those of veins. The tunic media in particular tends to be much heavier and contains substantially more smooth muscle and elastic tissue. This anatomical difference reflects a functional diffeerence in the 2 types of vessels. Arteries, which are...
Oxygenated blood is the blood remaining after the oxygen intake bythe body from the blood. And than oxygenated blood goes to Lungsand heart with enrich with oxygen for the body.
Too much cholesterol in the blood, or high blood cholesterol, canbe serious. People with high blood cholesterol have a greaterchance of getting heart disease. High blood cholesterol itself doesnot cause symptoms, so many people are unaware that theircholesterol level is too high.
Yes because of the lack of blood circulating the body. But itdepends how low it is. See your doctor for any concerns.
The normal blood sugar level for kids is 60-100 mg/dL.
The diastolic is Low, And the systolic is fine. 128 is the systolicand 58 is the diastolic.
It may affect on heart rate through autonomic nervous system
A rapid heart rate is due to intense activities like running,playing, even walking etc. Or some times due to hypertension andabnormal body condition.
nothing that's why they made a pace maker well they did have a machine you were hooked up to and if your heart stoped it shocked you i don't know what its though
a body of mass 50kg is placed on a wall of height 1.5m above theground.calculate the potential energy of the body(g_10mls2)
That vein is called the pulmonary vein. (pulmon)- lungs
drugs dont make you look skinny, they make you skinny because you waste your life with the crap and dont take care of yourself.
In QRS wave, P wave shows atrial contraction or depolarisationwhereas, T wave shows ventricular repolarisation.
Does vasoconstriction make vessels smaller?
Beta blockers are used to reduce or slow down the heart rate byblocking the effect of the hormone adrenaline.
Both sides of the heart pump blood but the right side is smaller because it has to produce less pressure because of the short distance to the lungs.
A frog's heart rate can be anywhere from 40 to 50 beats perminute.
The various risks of heart attacks include : .high blood pressure .high blood cholesterol .diabetes and pre-diabetes .smoking .family history of heart attack or heart disease .lack of physical activity .obesity or being overweight .having a history of preeclampsia during pregnancy .stress...
You can implement lifestyle modifications such as eating a healthy diet and cutting down on alcohol intake and smoking. If this fails, drugs such as niacin may be useful for you.
Most people do know that smoking, obesity and excessive alcohol use are adverse to the cardiovascular system, but repeating this information in a positive (not guilt producing) way is helpful.
The heart does not have enough time between contractions to fill with enough blood to maintain adequate cardiac output. This is especially a concern because the heart itself is perfused during diastole (the period between ventricular contractions).
no it is not because you have to cut down on sugars.
For most adults, your blood pressure should run between 100-160 ontop. The bottom number should be between 55-90. Check your bloodpressure after resting for at least five minutes, when sittingcomfortably with your feet flat on the floor. If your bloodpressure is running outside the above range...
i did not understand your question well, but there are three wavein working heart i a second: 1-P wave:its about 0.1 second and contraction of the Atriums 2-QRS wave: its about 0.4 second and contraction of the bellies. 3-T wave:its about 0.5 second and relaxing of the heart..
Yes, that blood pressure sounds normal. For most people, normal isbetween 100-160 on top, between 55-90 on the bottom. Make sure youcheck your blood pressure after resting about five minutes for anaccurate reading.

Digoxin is a prescription medication used to treat certain heartconditions. It's mostly used for atrial fibrillation, but has alsobeen known to treat heart failure.
Homocysteine is an amino acid your body uses to make proteinand to build and maintain tissue. But high levels of homocysteine may increase your risk of coronary arterydisease.
it helps by pulling the lungs
T-tubules are at the Z line and include diads instead of triads. Cardiac muscle is also single nucleated cells. Cell junctions exist as intercalated disks. Action potential excitation requires a pre calcium stimulation from extracellular sources. It them opens Ca++ channels in the sarcoplasmic...
The normal heart rate for adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute. A41 year old should have a heart rate in this range.
yes, 65 beats per minute is a normal and good heart rate fora 39year old female
It is known that dengue fever can affect the heart in several ways, including weakened force and speed of contraction and slowed pulse rate. Along with some other febrile illnesses ( illnesses with fever) dengue may demonstrate "relative bradyardia", that is, heart rate lower than would be expected...
Blood pressure is read in two parts, diastolic and systolic. It is documented as diastolic/systolic, example, a normal blood pressure is 120/80.
Yes, music can affect your pulse because if you may become over excited you may have a fast heart beat. P'S. i am 12 years old and i know this because i have a twin brother and he has a lung problem very much similar to of what you are speaking of,and he cannot get overexcited:(
Angina is chest pain due to ischemia (a lack of blood, thus a lack of oxygen supply and waste removal) of the heart muscle, generally due to obstruction or spasm of the coronary arteries (the heart's blood vessels). Myocardial Infarction is cellular death of the heart muscle due to lack of...
Scientists have found the reason why our body temperature is 37°C. Apparently it’s the perfect balance, as it’s warm enough to prevent fungal infection but not so hot that we need to eat nonstop to maintain our metabolism. .http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2011/01/why-the-human-body...
why you should not take a blood pressure in a patient who haslessened circulation in his or her arm
It's called the Pleural Membrane. The ribs surround the lungs in the thorasica cavity. Pleural visceral lung pleura. parietal pleura lines the thoracic wall and diaphragm. it is the pleura The membranes that surround the lungs are collectively called the Plurae. Pleura?
Because whatever the mother puts in her body will be transferred over to the baby. The umbilical cord is like an extension cord dining from the mother to the baby transferring blood oxygen and sustenance. So when the mother takes the drugs they enter her blood stream and will be pumped to the baby...
Chest flutters are also know as PVCs or Premature VentricularContractions. The can be caused from anxiety, fatigue, too muchexercise.
The P wave represents the wave of atrial depolarization and the t-wave represents the re-polarization.
The arteries and veins in an umbilical cord are different from thevessels in the rest of the body. These are more numerous and muchthinner.
Top number is the systolic. For example 120/80 120 would be your systolic number.
Rest or sleep, Depressant drugs, shock, dehydration, hemorrage (excessive loss of blood), and fasting (not eating).
1) Identify an appropriate limb to conduct the recoding on. 2) Select appropriate equipment e.g Stethoscope and shygmomanometer. 3) Place the cuff of the sphyg around the upper arm (around the bicep and tricep), with the arrow pointing to the Brachial artery. 4) Palpate the radial pulse. 5) Inflate...
What is normal apical rate?
The pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein originates in the heart. What is different about them is that the pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood (blood without oxygen) as supposed to other arteries, which carry oxygenated blood. And the pulmonary vein carries oxygenated blood unlike other veins...
On average, when sick, or healthy?
To get a flat stomach the best workout you can do is to actually focus on your whole body i.e. not just your abs. Working the larger muscle groups like in your legs will burn more calories for you which in turn will help you to reduce your body fat percentage. When you start to reduce your body fat...
Each college has a curriculum that is particular to itself. That being said, typically the courses that you can expect will be as follows: .Human Anatomy and Physiology I .Human anatomy and Physiology II .Microbiology .Chemistry for Allied Health. (It should include inorganic, organic and...
Your heart speeds up to pump extra food and oxygen to the muscles.Breathing speeds up to get more oxygen and to get rid of morecarbon dioxide. When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercisesthe pulse rate , breathing rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in anunfit person.
You can have a good heart by doing exercises. For example you cando spinning. Answer 2: Talk to any doctor and they will tell you light, moderateexercise for a healthy heart. Walking is the very best exercisebecause it uses all muscle groups in the body. By all means avoid asedentary lifestyle...
Pulses include the carotid on both sides of the neck, the brachial in the upper arm, the radial at the wrist, the femoral in the groin, the popliteal behind the knee, and the dorsalis pedis on the top of each foot. Although pulsations can be felt at the temple (temporal), this site is generally not...
No, Ultrasound is a specialty and requires more education than an x-ray tech.
endurance athletes have significantly lower heart rates than most other people
Cardiologists .Cardiac and Vascular Surgeons .Imaging Professionals .Electroneurodiagnostic Technicians and Technologists .EMTs and Paramedics .
Although highly active and motion based, gymnastics does not focus much on cardiovascular health and development. Instead it is about short bursts of intense energy and movement. Some events require better cardio than others, specifically Floor exercise can very very draining.
Resting pulse? Is this your heart rate while your sitting around watching tv, or after you've had a nice long walk? How much to you weigh? What's your family history? There are too many factors (good and bad) that can produce this pulse rate. Talk with your doctor and tell him/her all the details...
Yes it is,,,while one part of the heart is in systole (ie ventricles) the other part is in diastole (ie atrium) the blood is continually moving thru the body via the arteries and veins via the cardiac output. There is always a little blood left in the ventricles after Systole though.....
Capillariasis is a parasitic infection. The infection is caused byseveral types of nematodes: flatworms such as liver flukes, androundworms.
no its not a normal rate would be about 70-90 beats per minute
Upper chambers are called the right atrium and left atrium. Lowerchambers are referred to as the right ventricle and left ventricle.
Angina is best treated with rehabilitation and lifestyle changes.Some medicines, such as nitroglycerin can also be used as atreatment option.
Yes, but not directly. I mean, if you have artherosclerosis or something that affects specifically the heart/heart valves, you can't give that to someone. However, if you have something like Streptococcus, it can spread to others. Strep doesn't do much heart damage, but if the strep evolves into...
high altitudes=less oxygen=the athletes get tired faster=faster training Example: an athlete running on low altitudes may run up to 2h before feeling tired an athlete running on high altitudes may run only up to 30 min before feeling tired=faster training
d more harmful from of cholesterol found in the body
Well oxygenated. It means breathing room air the person has >98% oxygen saturation. (aka blood sat)Their heart and lungs are working together and keeping the pumping the oxygen to their organs sufficiently. A person with low blood sats may have pneumonia, asthma, COPD or could be a premature...
The normal heart rate for adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute. Aheart rate, or pulse, of 135 for a 60 year old is abnormal. This isknown as tachycardia.
