• pulmonary
  • They measured the effects of cardiac drugs and described various forms of dysfunction in chronic cardiac diseases and pulmonary diseases and their treatment, and developed techniques for the diagnosis of congenital heart diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • catheters
  • Over the next year, catheters were placed in a similar manner into the right ventricle, and measurements of pressure and cardiac output (using the Fick principle) were performed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Placement of a catheter into a particular part of the body may allow: "uretic catheter": draining urine from the urinary bladder as in urinary catheterization, e.g., the intermittent catheters or Foley catheter or even when the urethra is damaged as in suprapubic catheterisation. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis and treatment
  • CHOC Children's proudly offers two state-of-the-art laboratories exclusively dedicated to this important form of cardiac diagnosis and treatment in the Tidwell Procedure Center located in our Bill Holmes Tower. (choc.org)
  • radial
  • In clinical trials before crossing the learning curve there is up to 5% failure in completing the catheterization successfully from radial approach. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cardiac suite is equipped with the most advanced technology to perform Intravascular Ultrasounds, AngioJets, Radial Stenting, Advanced X-Rays, and more. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • When a post-catheterization patient, particularly an obese patient, develops hypotension (low blood pressure) or pain, physicians should immediately suspect a hemorrhage or hematoma (blood clot) and treat the patient accordingly. (millerandzois.com)
  • Doctors may take samples of blood and heart muscle during cardiac catheterization or do minor heart surgery. (nih.gov)
  • Your doctor can use cardiac catheterization to measure blood flow and oxygen levels in different parts of your heart. (nih.gov)
  • Cardiac catheterization is a test that uses a catheter and an x-ray machine to check the heart and its blood supply. (portsmouthhospital.com)
  • Determination of cardiac output can be done by releasing a small amount of saline solution (either chilled or at room temperature) in one area of the heart and measuring the drop in blood temperature over time in another area of the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • Occasionally, patients can develop retroperitoneal bleeding (bleeding into the pelvic cavity), and up to 1% of patients require blood transfusion to treat the bleeding complication after transfemoral catheterizations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Possibility of blood transfusion requirement is extremely rare after transradial catheterization. (wikipedia.org)
  • After his work on the G-Suit, Wood worked on techniques for measuring cardiac blood flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • Integral to the work leading to the development of the G suit was the perfection of vascular catheterization methods needed to understand the distribution of blood pressure and flow. (wikipedia.org)
