Forced expiratory effort against a closed GLOTTIS.
The dilatation of the aortic wall behind each of the cusps of the aortic valve.
The ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; and SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM taken together. Generally speaking, the autonomic nervous system regulates the internal environment during both peaceful activity and physical or emotional stress. Autonomic activity is controlled and integrated by the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, especially the HYPOTHALAMUS and the SOLITARY NUCLEUS, which receive information relayed from VISCERAL AFFERENTS.
Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. Manifestations include impairments of vegetative functions including the maintenance of BLOOD PRESSURE; HEART RATE; pupil function; SWEATING; REPRODUCTIVE AND URINARY PHYSIOLOGY; and DIGESTION.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the ATRIAL SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. Classification of atrial septal defects is based on location of the communication and types of incomplete fusion of atrial septa with the ENDOCARDIAL CUSHIONS in the fetal heart. They include ostium primum, ostium secundum, sinus venosus, and coronary sinus defects.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Blockage of an artery due to passage of a clot (THROMBUS) from a systemic vein to a systemic artery without its passing through the lung which acts as a filter to remove blood clots from entering the arterial circulation. Paradoxical embolism occurs when there is a defect that allows a clot to cross directly from the right to the left side of the heart as in the cases of ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS or open FORAMEN OVALE. Once in the arterial circulation, a clot can travel to the brain, block an artery, and cause a STROKE.

A condition in which the FORAMEN OVALE in the ATRIAL SEPTUM fails to close shortly after birth. This results in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. An isolated patent ovale foramen without other structural heart defects is usually of no hemodynamic significance.
A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.

Contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasound in the detection of right-to-left shunts. Reproducibility, comparison of 2 agents, and distribution of microemboli. (1/358)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cardiac right-to-left shunts can be identified by transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) with the use of different contrast agents and by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Systematic data are available on neither the reproducibility of contrast TCD, the comparison of different contrast agents, nor the comparison of simultaneous bilateral to unilateral recordings. Furthermore, we assessed the side distribution of thus provoked artificial cardiac emboli. METHODS: Fifty-four patients were investigated by TEE and by bilateral TCD of the middle cerebral artery. The following protocol was performed twice: injection of 9 mL of agitated saline without Valsalva maneuver, injection of 9 mL of agitated saline with Valsalva maneuver, injection of 5 mL of a commercial galactose-based contrast agent without Valsalva maneuver, and injection of 5 mL of the galactose-based contrast agent with Valsalva maneuver. RESULTS: In 18 patients, a right-to-left shunt was demonstrated by TEE and contrast TCD (shunt positive). Twenty-nine patients were negative in both investigations, 1 was positive on TEE and negative on TCD, and 6 patients were only positive on TCD. Both bilateral and repeated recordings increased the sensitivity of contrast TCD. There was a symmetrical distribution of microembolic signals in the right and left middle cerebral artery. CONCLUSIONS: TCD performed twice and with the use of saline or a galactose-based contrast agent is a sensitive method in the identification of cardiac right-to-left shunts also identified by TEE. The cardiac microemboli in this study did not show any side preference for one of the middle cerebral arteries.  (+info)

Physiological reflux and venous diameter change in the proximal lower limb veins during a standardised Valsalva manoeuvre. (2/358)

OBJECTIVES: the aim of this study was to provide normal values for venous diameter at rest, and venous diameter and physiologic venous reflux during a standardised Valsalva manoeuvre. The impact of the patient's sex, body mass index (BMI), and family history was investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: eighty legs of 40 healthy volunteers were investigated in a supine position. The median age was 28 years (range 20-66 years). The common femoral vein (CFV), the proximal superficial femoral vein (SFV) and the proximal long saphenous vein (LSV) were investigated by duplex sonography. The following parameters were assessed: resting diameter (VDrest) and maximum diameter (VDmax) as well as reflux time (tr) during the Valsalva manoeuvre. The Valsalva manoeuvre was elicited by a forceful expiration into a tube system. The standard values used were a pressure of 30 mmHg, established within 0.5 seconds (s) and maintained over a time period of at least 3 s. RESULTS: mean VDrest and VDmax were 8.3+/-2.2 and 11.1+/-2.8 mm in the CFV, 5.9+/-1. 3 and 7.2+/-1.6 mm in the SFV and 3.5+/-0.9 and 4.3+/-1.4 mm in the LSV. Mean values for tr were 0.61+/-0.63 s in the CFV, 0.25+/-0.26 s in the SFV and 0.28+/-0.40 s in the LSV. A BMI >22.5 kg/m2 was associated with statistically significant larger values for VDrest and tr. If adjusted for BMI, tr in the SFV and the LSV did not differ by sex. For healthy subjects with first-degree relatives suffering from varicose veins (n=19), mean VDrest in the SFV as well as VD in the LSV was significantly larger (p=0.02, 0.05, respectively). Coefficients of variation for repeated measurements (VDrest, VDmax, tr) in the same segment varied between 3.3% and 16. 4% for the three investigated sites. CONCLUSIONS: normal values for VDrest and VDmax as well as reflux time during a standardised Valsalva manouevre were assessed in the proximal lower limb veins. The influences of BMI, sex and family history were investigated. The described standardised Valsalva manoeuvre led to highly reproducible results and can be recommended for further research projects or as a routine procedure for the assessment of venous reflux.  (+info)

Methodological parameters influence the detection of right-to-left shunts by contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. (3/358)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasonography is a new method to detect intracardiac right-to-left shunts, such as the patent foramen ovale. However, the methodology of the procedure varies considerably among investigators. This study was undertaken to assess the influence of methodological parameters on the results of the contrast transcranial Doppler examination in the detection of right-to-left shunts. METHODS: A total of 72 patients (mean age, 58.2+/-14.7 years) had a contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasonography examination. To study the influence of methodological factors, patients with evidence of a right-to-left shunt underwent repeated examinations with modified procedures. Parameters under investigation were the timing of the Valsalva maneuver, the dose of the contrast medium, and the patient's posture during the examination. RESULTS: The median contrast signal count was 58.5 and 48.0 (P<0.001) and the median latency of the first intracranially detected contrast signal was 12.5 and 8.5 seconds (P=0.05) when the Valsalva maneuver was performed 5 and 0 seconds after the start of the injection, respectively. Reducing the contrast medium dose from 10 to 5, 2.5, and 1.2 mL resulted in a decline of the median signal count from 54.5 to 28.5, 20.5, and 12.0 (P<0.01), respectively, while the latency of the first contrast signal increased from 13.3 to 14.0, 14.6, and 15.0 seconds (P<0.05). The sitting position also produced a lower signal count than the supine position (P<0.02). CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that several essential methodological parameters influence the results of the contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasonography examination. Therefore, it is necessary to standardize the procedure to permit comparable quantitative assessments of the shunt volume. The findings of the present study suggest that 10 mL of contrast medium be injected with the patient in the supine position and that the Valsalva maneuver be performed 5 seconds after the start of the injection.  (+info)

Ultrasonographic diagnosis and color flow Doppler sonography of internal jugular venous ectasia in children. (4/358)

We investigated the diagnostic utility of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of internal jugular venous ectasia. Eight children (six boys, two girls) were recruited into this prospective study. Sonography of internal jugular venous ectasia in these patients revealed fusiform dilation of the internal jugular vein, and the possibility of thrombus and external compression could be ruled out. Marked variation in size of ectatic jugular veins during respiration was demonstrated under real-time sonography. The mean anteroposterior diameter of these dilated internal jugular veins was 0.79+/-0.18 mm (mean+/-standard deviation), which increased to 1.58+/-0.27 mm with Valsalva maneuver. Our study showed that the anteroposterior diameters of the internal jugular veins in cases of ectasia were greater than those of contralateral jugular veins in same patients as well as those in normal children, and they showed greater increase after Valsalva maneuver. Under color Doppler flow studies, turbulent vascular flows were demonstrated in these patients with jugular venous ectasia. No progression of venous ectasia was found in any of our patients during a 6 month follow-up period. We conclude that internal jugular venous ectasia in children is a benign condition, which usually does not require surgical intervention. Ultrasonography is a good diagnostic modality for the diagnosis of internal jugular venous ectasia. Color Doppler ultrasonography demonstrate the turbulent flow in jugular venous ectasia.  (+info)

Acute manipulations of plasma volume alter arterial pressure responses during Valsalva maneuvers. (5/358)

The effects of changes in blood volume on arterial pressure patterns during the Valsalva maneuver are incompletely understood. In the present study we measured beat-to-beat arterial pressure and heart rate responses to supine Valsalva maneuvers during normovolemia, hypovolemia induced with intravenous furosemide, and hypervolemia induced with ingestion of isotonic saline. Valsalva responses were analyzed according to the four phases as previously described (W. F. Hamilton, R. A. Woodbury, and H. T. Harper, Jr. JAMA 107: 853-856, 1936; W. F. Hamilton, R. A. Woodbury, and H. T. Harper, Jr. Am. J. Physiol. 141: 42-50, 1944). Phase I is the initial onset of straining, which elicits a rise in arterial pressure; phase II is the period of straining, during which venous return is impeded and pressure falls (early) and then partially recovers (late); phase III is the initial release of straining; and phase IV consists of a rapid "overshoot" of arterial pressure after the release. During hypervolemia, early phase II arterial pressure decreases were significantly less than those during hypovolemia, thus making the response more "square." Systolic pressure hypervolemic vs. hypovolemic falls were -7.4 +/- 2.1 vs. -30.7 +/- 7 mmHg (P = 0.005). Diastolic pressure hypervolemic vs. hypovolemic falls were -2.4 +/- 1.6 vs. -15.2 +/- 2.6 mmHg (P = 0.05). A significant direct correlation was found between plasma volume and phase II systolic pressure falls, and a significant inverse correlation was found between plasma volume and phase III-IV systolic pressure overshoots. Heart rate responses to systolic pressure falls during phase II were significantly less during hypovolemia than during hypervolemia (0.7 +/- 0.2 vs. 2.82 +/- 0.2 beats. min-1. mmHg-1; P = 0.05) but were not different during phase III-IV overshoots. We conclude that acute changes in intravascular volume from hypovolemia to hypervolemia affect cardiovascular responses, particularly arterial pressure changes, to the Valsalva maneuver and should be considered in both clinical and research applications of this maneuver.  (+info)

Older subjects show no age-related decrease in cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity. (6/358)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between age, blood pressure and cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity derived from spectral analysis, the Valsalva manoeuvre and impulse response function. METHODS: We studied 70 healthy normotensive volunteers who were free from disease and not taking medication with cardiovascular or autonomic effects. We measured beat-to-beat arterial blood pressure and used standard surface electrocardiography to record pulse interval under standardized conditions with subjects resting supine as well as during three Valsalva manoeuvres. We performed single, multiple and stepwise regression of patient characteristics against cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity results. RESULTS: There is a non-linear decline in cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity with advancing age, increasing systolic blood pressure and heart rate values (except for the Valsalva-derived result), but little further decline after the fourth decade. Only age significantly influenced values derived using the Valsalva manoeuvre and impulse response analysis. Using spectral analysis, age, systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate influenced cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity, age contributing to 50% of the variability. Age also influenced the relationship between pulse interval and blood pressure, possibly indicating more non-baroreceptor-mediated changes with advancing age. CONCLUSIONS: Although age is the dominant factor influencing cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity in this normotensive population, there is little change in mean values after 40 years of age. The differences in the relationship between pulse interval and blood pressure with advancing age have implications for the calculation of cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity using spectral analysis.  (+info)

Contrast transcranial Doppler ultrasound in the detection of right-to-left shunts: comparison of different procedures and different contrast agents. (7/358)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cardiac right-to-left shunts can be identified by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and by transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) with the use of different contrast agents and different provocation procedures. Currently, data on an appropriate time window for the appearance of contrast bubbles in the TCD recording after the injection of the contrast medium and the comparison of different provocation maneuvers to increase right-to-left shunting are insufficient. METHODS: Forty-six patients were investigated by both TEE and bilateral TCD of the middle cerebral artery. The following protocol with 6 injection modes was applied in a randomized way: (1) injection of 10 mL of agitated saline without Valsalva maneuver, (2) injection of 10 mL of agitated saline with Valsalva maneuver, (3) injection of 10 mL of a commercial galactose-based contrast agent (Echovist) without Valsalva maneuver, (4) injection of 10 mL of Echovist with Valsalva maneuver, (5) injection of 10 mL of Echovist with standardized Valsalva maneuver, and (6) injection of 10 mL of Echovist with coughing. RESULTS: In 20 patients, a right-to-left shunt was demonstrated by TEE and contrast TCD (shunt-positive). Sixteen patients were negative in both investigations, no patient was positive on TEE and negative on TCD, and 10 patients were only positive on at least 1 TCD investigation but negative during TEE. The amount of microbubbles detected in the various tests decreased in the following order: Echovist and Valsalva maneuver, Echovist with coughing, Echovist and standardized Valsalva maneuver, saline with Valsalva maneuver, Echovist, and saline. With a time window of 20 to 25 seconds for the bubbles to appear in the TCD recording and with a sequence of first Echovist and Valsalva maneuver and then Echovist with coughing, all shunts were reliably identified with a specificity of 65% compared with TEE as the traditional gold standard. The time of first microbubble appearance was not helpful to distinguish between shunts detected on TEE and other shunts. CONCLUSIONS: TCD performed twice with 2 provocation maneuvers using Echovist is a sensitive method to identify cardiac right-to-left shunts also identified by TEE.  (+info)

The effect of pregnancy on the lower-limb venous system of women with varicose veins. (8/358)

OBJECTIVES: to assess the effect of pregnancy on the lower-limb venous system of women with varicose veins. Design a longitudinal prospective study of 11 pregnant women, with varicose vein disease. METHODS: eleven pregnant women with varicose veins were recruited as part of a larger study. Veins were assessed in both lower limbs using colour-flow duplex scanning at a 75 degrees head-up tilt. The diameter and velocity and duration of reflux were measured in each vein at 12, 20, 26, 34, 38 weeks gestation and 6 weeks postpartum. RESULTS: eleven women had reflux and varicose veins demonstrated at first scan. All veins dilated with increasing gestation. This was maximal in the superficial system, reaching significance (p+info)

Background: Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a relatively common dysrhythmia among the general population and a common dysrhythmia presenting to the emergency department. Generally speaking, it is assumed the provider should attempt a vagal maneuver as first-line treatment for SVT, and the most common vagal maneuver used is the Valsalva. Current resources describing the method to perform the Valsalva are vague, and it seems that the exact procedure may vary across clinicians. Even though the Valsalva maneuver is accepted as first-line treatment, there may not be complete compliance with this maneuver and many emergency departments rely relatively heavily on adenosine as absolute treatment for SVT. Currently accepted methods for performing the Valsalva typically describe the patient in a sitting or semi-recumbent position prior to
Clinically, the Valsalva maneuver is considered as main cause of defecation syncope and surgery Hepatic hemodynamics during Valsalva maneuver performed in a patient with functional suprahepatic inferior vana cava (IVC) obstruction during the Valsalva maneuver [12]. Collapsed IVC showed during the maneuver in normal healthy subjects using ultrasonography study, but IVC howed angular appearance and not collapsed during the maneuver in the venography study [10,11]. The change of IVC during the maneuver is ambiguous and hemodynamic contribution of hepatic vein and portal vein during the maneuver has not been studied in normal healthy subjects. Duplex Doppler ultrasonography of the liver provides important information about liver condition [11,13]. Hepatic vein flow depends on hepatic parenchymal compliance, thoracoabdominal pressure, and right atrial pressure. It is known that hepatic vein Doppler waveform is triphasic pattern which is composed of two anterograde flow peaks toward the heart and one ...
Anticoagulants are the treatment of choice for pulmonary embolism. When these fail or are contraindicated, vena cava filters are effective devices for preventing clots from the legs from migrating to the lung. Many uncertainties exist when a filter is inserted, especially during physiological activity such as normal breathing and the Valsalva maneuver. These activities are often connected with filter migration and vena cava damage due to the various related vein geometrical configurations. In this work, we analyzed the response of the vena cava during normal breathing and Valsalva maneuver, for a healthy vena cava and after insertion of a commercial Günther-Tulip® filter. Validated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and patient specific data are used for analyzing blood flow inside the vena cava during these maneuvers. While during normal breathing, the vena cava flow can be considered almost stationary with a very low pressure gradient, during Valsalva the extravascular pressure compresses ...
The Valsalva maneuver (VM) produces large and abrupt changes in mean arterial pressure (MAP) that challenge cerebral blood flow and oxygenation. We examined the effect of VM intensity on middle cerebral artery blood velocity (MCAv) and cortical oxygenation responses during (phase I, II, III) and following (phase IV) a VM. Healthy participants (n=20 mean ± SD: 27±7 y) completed 30 and 90% of their maximal VM mouth pressure for 10 s (order randomised) whilst standing. Beat-to-beat MCAv, cerebral oxygenation (NIRS) and MAP across the different phases of the VM are reported as the difference from standing baseline. There were significant interaction (phase * intensity) effects for MCAv, total oxygenation index (TOI) and MAP (all P
The second stage of labor is divided into two parts for describing its physiology. In the initial phase, also called the pelvic phase, rotation, alignment, and descent of the presentation part occurs. Ferguson reflex occurs in the late or active phase and the mother pushes spontaneously (5, 28, 29). Lack of attention to the natural physiology of the second stage leads to maternal fatigue and increases labor disorders (29, 30). Moreover, maternal fatigue affects maternal perceived pain severity and decreases maternal satisfaction. Reduction in maternal satisfaction affects the subsequent choice of delivery method (31, 32). Maternal fatigue in the second stage of labor may continue in postpartum hours or days and interfere with breastfeeding and the mother-infant relationship (31, 33).. This study showed that spontaneous pushing in the lateral position, compared with the Valsalva maneuver, reduced pain severity in the second stage of labor and fatigue level, but did not shorten the duration of the ...

Persistent foramen ovale (PFO) is considered a cause of cryptogenic stroke and a risk factor for neurological events in young patients. The reference standard for identifying a PFO is contrast-enhanced transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). The goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of transcranial color Doppler (TCD) and its diagnostic sensitivity compared with TEE. We investigated 420 patients admitted to our department with cryptogenic stroke, transient ischemic attacks or other neurological symptoms. All patients underwent TCD and TEE evaluation. TCD and TEE examinations were performed according to a standardized procedure: air-mixed saline was injected into the right antecubital vein three times, while the Doppler signal was recorded during the Valsalva maneuver. During TCD the passage of contrast into the right-middle cerebral artery was recorded 25 seconds following the Valsalva maneuver. We detected a right-to-left shunt in 220 patients (52.3%) and no-shunts in 159 patients (37.9%)
PURPOSE: To evaluate whether there is any difference in thickness of the distal esophageal wall in various examination conditions including at rest, during Valsalva maneuver and after drinking cold water and to search the optimal condition for transabdominal US examination in diagnosis of esophageal varix. MATERIALS and METHODS: Transabdominal ultrasonography was prospectively performed in forty one patients with esophageal varix confirmed by endoscopy and underlying liver. The thickness of the anterior distal esophageal wall was measured three times consecutively and calculated the mean thickness at rest, during Valsalva maneuver and following drinking cold water. At the same time, the normal control group consisted of forty four normal patients, and the mean thickness was calculated in the same method to established the normal value. Data obtained by both measures were compared and analyzed by ANOVA and Tuckey multiple comparison. RESULTS: The mean thickness of the distal esophageal wall in ...
VM duration during fetal expulsion in labor negatively affects fetal acid-base equilibrium and potentially the wellbeing of the neonate. Our results support the need to consider respiratory strategies during labor, to minimize potential risk to the mother and neonate.

To dissociate the effects of an elevated blood pressure on the cardiovascular regulatory functions from those of aging in the hypertensive elderly individual, resting hemodynamic measurements and circulatory autonomic functions in 30 elderly (mean age, 66 years) hypertensive (World Health Organization stages I and II) patients were compared with those in 30 healthy elderly (mean age, 65 years) normotensive volunteers. The elderly hypertensive group showed a significantly lower cardiac index and higher total peripheral resistance. beta-Receptor sensitivity, as determined by chronotropic dose of infused isoproterenol, and baroreceptor reflex sensitivity index, derived from phase II, but not phase IV, of Valsalvas maneuver, were only slightly but significantly reduced in the hypertensive group. The variability of heart rate at rest as an index of parasympathetic control of heart was similar between these two groups.

ER is most often an incidental ECG finding that may be present intermittently.12 Given the relatively high prevalence of the ER pattern in the general population (5 to 13 percent) in comparison to the incidence of idiopathic VF (approximately 10 cases per 100,000 population), the ER pattern is nearly always a benign incidental ECG finding. There are no specific signs or symptoms attributed to the ER pattern, which is identified through the use of a standard ECG. In the absence of syncope or sudden cardiac arrest, no additional testing is required in persons with the ER pattern. Asking patients to perform the Valsalva manoeuvre may unmask or accentuate the ER pattern. While performing this manoeuvre has been shown to aid in the identification of the ER pattern in high-risk familial ER, the report of this has not been validated and its applicability to broad populations of asymptomatic persons has not been evaluated.13. The diagnosis of ER syndrome is most commonly considered in a survivor of ...

Strenuous exercise can lead to exercise-induced headaches. While this is normally not cause for concern, an exercise session thats a little too strenuous can cause a potentially life-threatening condition. The haemorrhaging takes place between the brain and the membrane that protects and covers the brain. Exercise headaches typically last 24 hours, but some last days. If you get a headache during or after exercise, and it doesnt go away on its own, its time to see the doctor. In fact, if you ever get a headache during or after exercise, see the doctor just to rule this out. Sometimes, certain breathing techniques, like the valsalva manoeuvre, cause excessive pressure to build up and can make you light-headed. Other times, it can cause a headache that starts in the base of the skull, radiating upward. You want to make sure that the headaches are not serious and that its safe for you to continue your workouts. ...
Ive previously discussed breathing but have concentrated on unusual situations, like conscious hyperventilation and the Valsalva Maneuver. I should probably have started out by talking about something that is a bit more universally applicable.. Lets talk about this: no breathing equals no oxygen equals total exhaustion.. Storytime: I once talked with a very frustrated and discouraged grappler. For the sake of this story, lets call the grappler Fred. Anyway, Fred was a fit guy who did lots of cardiovascular conditioning to help him with his endurance, but had an unusual problem with his grappling. In his own words:. The situation seems to occur when I train against new people who are very aggressive, usually wrestlers. I try to relax, but it doesnt seem to be working. I still seem to tense up and gas out. But when I fight guys who are so much better than me I can train for a long time and even roll for 30-40 minutes at a time with minimal breaks.. In other words he had MORE endurance ...
Contraindications: Adherus AutoSpray and Adherus AutoSpray ET Dural Sealant should not be used in confined anatomical spaces where nerve compression is of concern. The hydrogel may swell by up to 13% of its size in any dimension or 46% by volume after application.. Pivotal Trial Results: A prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter pivotal trial was conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Adherus AutoSpray Dural Sealant. The primary endpoint of this study was a composite evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of Adherus AutoSpray Dural Sealant (n=124 subjects) when compared to an active control (n=126 subjects). The endpoint results were based on the number of subjects who were free from intra-operative CSF leakage from dural repair after up to two applications of sealant during the Valsalva maneuver, CSF leak/pseudomeningocele during the 120-day follow-up period and unplanned retreatment of the original surgical site within 120 days post-surgery.

The presence of a large right-to-left shunt is associated with neurological decompression illness after non-provocative dives, as a result of paradoxical gas embolism. A small number of observations suggest that cutaneous decompression illness is also associated with a right-to-left shunt, although an embolic aetiology of a diffuse rash is more difficult to explain. We performed a retrospective case-control comparison of the prevalence and sizes of right-to-left shunts determined by contrast echocardiography performed blind to history in 60 divers and one caisson worker with a history of cutaneous decompression illness, and 123 historical control divers. We found that 47 (77.0%) of the 61 cases with cutaneous decompression illness had a shunt, compared with 34 (27.6%) of 123 control divers (P, 0.001). The size of the shunts in the divers with cutaneous decompression illness was significantly greater than in the controls. Thus 30 (49.2%) of the 61 cases with cutaneous decompression illness had a ...
When rapid ambient pressure increase occurs as in diving or aircraft descent, this pressure tends to hold the Eustachian tubes closed, preventing pressure equalization across the ear drum, with painful results.[4][5][6] To avoid this painful situation, divers, caisson workers and aircrew attempt to open the Eustachian tubes by swallowing, which tends to open the tubes, allowing the ear to equalize itself. If this fails, then the Valsalva maneuver may be used. This maneuver, when used as a tool to equalize middle ear pressure, carries with it the risk of auditory damage from over pressurization of the middle ear.[1][5][7][8] It is safer, if time permits, to attempt to open the Eustachian tubes by swallowing a few times, or yawning, or by using the Valsalva technique of breathing a very small amount of air gently into nostrils held closed by the fingers as soon as mild pressure is felt, before it increases to the point that its release would be painful. The effectiveness of the yawning method ...

Contrast-enhanced transcranial Doppler ultrasonography is an indirect approach to detect right-to-left shunting and does not allow for an exact anatomic localization of shunts. Precisely, in the mentioned diagnostic setting, a PFO is likely to cause high-intensity transient signals in c-TCD, but one should be aware that a PFO is not proven by this method. To ensure the diagnosis, contrast medium has to cross the atrial septum following the pressure gradient produced by a Valsalva maneuver during an interval of time that excludes pulmonary passage. Therefore, this interval should start with presence of contrast agent in the right atrium and should not exceed 10 cardiac cycles. Stendel et al. 1allow for 3-15 heart cycles after 5 s injection and 5 s Valsalva maneuver, following the protocol of Schwarze et al. , 2but pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas can be a reason for the detection of high-intensity transient signals during the mentioned interval.. ...

The diagnosis of brain death (BD) is based on clinical criteria including deep coma, brain stem areflexia and apnoea. Depending on different local guidelines, confirmatory technical tests are sometimes mandatory.1 Since the 1990s, transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) has found its place in these circumstances and fulfils most of the criteria of an ideal test in confirming BD. To confirm intracranial circulatory arrest (CA) with Doppler sonography, typical flow patterns must be recorded in bilateral intracranial and extracranial brain-supplying arteries.2 A completely absent intracranial flow signal is not a reliable sign to determine CA because this can be due to transmission problems. Inadequate ultrasound penetration of the temporal bone is a major drawback of this technique, making definitive assessment of intracranial flow patterns impossible. Stabilised microbubble ultrasonic contrast agents (UCA) are routinely used in neurological clinical routine when intracranial insonation is ...

In this study, the vagal efferent arc was demonstrated to be unaffected by hypertension, with no difference in RR interval variation with respiration between the three groups. Furthermore, the Valsalva ratio was also similar between the three groups. Study of the baroreceptor-cardiac reflex, however, identified a consistent reduction in BRS with hypertension, irrespective of the method used for study (phase 4 of the Valsalva maneuver, phenylephrine pressor or SNP depressor method; Tables 2 and 3⇑⇑). BRS in the CH and ISH groups was significantly lower than in the NT group, but there were no differences between the two hypertensive groups. This observation is also borne out by the multiple regression analysis, which identified SBP as the single predictor of BRS, independent of age and DBP.. The present study is in agreement with that of Sumimoto et al,18 who found reduced BRS in elderly subjects (assessed only by the pressor method) categorized as having either diastolic hypertension ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Sinus valsalva aneurizma ruptúra és reruptúra.. AU - Szuromi, Péter. AU - Hejjel, László. AU - Tóth, Levente. AU - Ajtay, Zénó. AU - Papp, L.. PY - 2006/4. Y1 - 2006/4. N2 - Aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva (SVA) is a rare condition of the aorta. It progrediates slowly and can be hidden for a long time, but during its development it may cause various symptoms due to compression. Rupture of the aneurysm can result in acute heart failure necessitating an urgent operative treatment. We operated on a patient with symptoms of acute heart failure, grade III-IV tricuspid insufficiency, loud systolo-diastolic murmur and an extremely high calculated right ventricular pressure. The echocardiography discovered the rupture of the non-coronary sinus of Valsalva shunting to the right ventricle. During the operation we removed the aneurysm sac, and closed the hole directly with running sutures. The involved non-coronary cusp ruptured in the early postoperative course, so an acute ...
We report two patients with increased central skull base and craniocervical junction bone pneumatisation complicated by extra-osseous gas. One patient presented with symptoms of increasing nasal blockage and sinus pressure on a background of extensive nasal polyposis. He was subsequently found to have a history of repeated Valsalvas manoeuvre, the cessation of which resulted in a rapid decrease in the amount of extra-osseous gas on imaging. The second patient presented following a minor head trauma with dysarthria from a hypoglossal nerve palsy and neck pain, with extensive intra- and extra-cranial gas including within the spinal canal (pneumorrhachis ...
Are you aware of how important deep breathing exercises can be to your health? Deep breathing can lower your blood pressure, relieve stress, and help clear your mind. It may be the simplest form of exercise available, and one of the most beneficial. Oxygen plays a critical part to every bodily function we have. Perhaps the three most important things we can do for our body are drink plenty of fresh clean water, eat a healthy natural low fat diet, and do deep breathing exercises to increase our ability to oxygenate our blood. These three things make sure our body is fully nourished, and able to produce plentiful energy for all of lifes challenges. Deep breathing to improve your health should be done with purpose and a plan. The first thing is to make sure you are sitting or standing in a position which allows your diaphragm to move freely and without restriction. Wear comfortable clothes which do not restrict your free movement. Many people breathe from their chest and not deeply from their ...

The Zavanelli maneuver is an obstetric maneuver that involves pushing back the delivered fetal head into the birth canal in anticipation of performing a cesarean section in cases of shoulder dystocia. The Zavanelli maneuver is performed only after other maneuvers have failed, as it is associated with high risk to both the mother and the fetus. A review published in 1985 found that 84 of 92 cases of Zavanelli maneuver were successful in replacing the head of the fetus back into the uterus. Risks of the maneuver to the mother include soft tissue damage and sepsis. The Zavanelli maneuver is not performed very often in the United States.

In October 2014 I started getting cough headaches (produced by Valsalva maneuvers), some ear issues (feeling of fullness - needing to pop), and slight facial tingling/numbness. I saw my general doc and had an MRI which showed a large (bit smaller than a golf ball), benign, likely congenital, anachroid cyst in the middle fossa area. The MRI showed no signs of a CFS leak. I was referred to a neurosurgeon. The neurosurgeon said theres a strong likelihood my cough headache is caused by the
MONCADA PAZ, Gustavo A. et al. ANEURYSM OF RIGTH CORONARY SINUS RUPTURE OF VALSALVA IN FEMALE PATIENT: A CASE REPORT. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 48-52. ISSN 2077-3323.. Aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are infrequent anomalies caused by discontinuity between middle tunic of aorta and the valvular ring. Generally, they are asymptomatic while they are intact, most of them are diagnosed after to a rupture. They affect with more frequency males and its rupture mostly occur in young adults; this defect can be a cause of heart failure. In some cases, can occur as sudden death. Its diagnosis requires imaging studies and its treatment is usually surgical. It is presented the case of an 18 years old female patient, who consulted for symptoms of heart failure. Upon physical examination, It was found hipotension with a displaced tip shock, murmur auscultated in all auscultatory sites and it was irradiated to left armpit, presence of jugular ingurgitation and ascites.

In about one third of all patients with cerebral ischemia, no definite cause can be identified (cryptogenic stroke). In many patients with initially suspected cryptogenic stroke, however, a cardiogenic etiology can eventually be determined. Hence, the aim of this study was to describe the prevalence of abnormal echocardiographic findings in a large number of these patients. Patients with cryptogenic cerebral ischemia (ischemic stroke, IS, and transient ischemic attack, TIA) were included. The initial work-up included a neurological examination, EEG, cCT, cMRT, 12-lead ECG, Holter-ECG, Doppler ultrasound of the extracranial arteries, and transthoracic echocardiography. A multiplane transeophageal echocardiography (TEE, including i.v. contrast medium application [Echovist], Valsalva maneuver) was performed in all patients 702 consecutive patients (380 male, 383 IS, 319 TIA, age 18-90 years) were included. In 52.6% of all patients, TEE examination revealed relevant findings. Overall, the most common

By Winni Jeong. Researchers in Germany viewed a live birth with an MRI machine for the first time in order to study how the fetus and the mothers pelvis interact during birth. As New Scientist reported, the birth took place in 2010, but the video was only released recently. It is the first time such a video has been released to the general public. The study, published in the June 2012 issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, says that the video shows the active second stage of labor, when the mother starts performing expulsive efforts with the valsalva maneuver. The researchers stopped the MRI machine before the second stage in order to prevent possible damage to the babys ears from noise of the machine.. MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, uses radio waves and powerful magnetic fields to create images of structures within the body. This in turn allowed scientists to clearly see the way that fetus and pelvis interact during birth. This scientific advancement could lead to ...

Research Design and Methods A battery of cardiovascular reflex tests was performed in 130 newly diagnosed IDDM patients aged 12-40 yr at mean blood glucose levels of 7.2 mM after insulin had been administered for 3-39 days. Age-dependent lower limits of normal of these tests were defined at the 2.3 percentile in 120 nondiabetic subjects. Tests of heart-rate variation (HRV) included the coefficient of variation (C.V.) and the low-frequency (LF), midfrequency (MF), and high-frequency (HF) bands of spectral analysis at rest, HRV during deep breathing (C.V., expiratory-inspiratory ratio, and mean circular resultant), Valsalva ratio, and maximum/minimum 30:15 ratio. In addition, spectral analysis on standing, the change in systolic blood pressure to standing, and diastolic blood pressure response to sustained handgrip were determined in 50 patients.. ...
B.Fleck raised the question of allowing future science driven spacecraft maneuvers, now that SOHO appears to be more robust than ever since launch. SWAN, SUMER and MDI voiced some interest in performing maneuvers. It was pointed out, however, that during a maneuver some of the extra safety nets currently provided (e.g. star swapping, fallback into Coarse Roll Pointing mode) would not be effective during maneuvers, since roll control would already have been transferred to the Coarse Roll Sensor. It was nevertheless concluded that one would again consider strong scientific cases for spacecraft maneuvers against the risk posed by temporary loss of some of the extra safety features. Although proposals will be accepted and evaluated, they are not encouraged. ...

Our results suggest that in ventilated pediatric patients with ALI: both SI and SRS effectively raise PaO2 and FRC; SI may be associated with temporary desaturation in children; SRS is associated with an increase in PaCO2 during the maneuver; and both SI and SRS are hemodynamically well tolerated.. Several studies have noted that both SI and SRS are effective in raising PaO2 in adults and children with ARDS.7,11,13,23 When an SRS was applied following an SI, in non-randomized fashion, Borges et al11 noted that PaO2 rose further following SRS. When assessed using computed tomography, Borges et al also noted regions of lung collapse that had not opened following SI became aerated following SRS. This is consistent with the increase in FRC we demonstrated following SRS, compared to following SI. However, in both the Borges et al study and our study, the non-randomized, sequential application of SRS after an SI precludes any conclusions regarding the efficacy of one maneuver over the other; it is ...
