  • blockage
  • Stokes-Adams syndrome (alternative eponyms include Adams-Stokes syndrome, Gerbezius-Morgagni-Adams-Stokes syndrome and Gerbec-Morgagni-Adams-Stokes syndrome) is a periodic fainting spell in which there is a periodic onset and offset of blockage of heart due to disorder of heart rhythm that may last for seconds, hours, days, or even weeks before the conduction returns. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • Cardiac stress tests compare the coronary circulation while the patient is at rest with the same patient's circulation during maximum physical exertion, showing any abnormal blood flow to the myocardium (heart muscle tissue). (wikipedia.org)
  • The cardiac stress test is done with heart stimulation, either by exercise on a treadmill, pedalling a stationary exercise bicycle ergometer, or with intravenous pharmacological stimulation, with the patient connected to an electrocardiogram (ECG). (wikipedia.org)

  • heartbeat
  • With each heartbeat, an electrical signal spreads across the heart from the upper to the lower chambers. (daviddarling.info)
  • In this type (also known as Wenckebach's block), the electrical signals are delayed more and more with each heartbeat, until the heart skips a beat. (daviddarling.info)
  • Clinically speaking, the blocks tend to have more serious potential the closer they are to the 'end' of the electrical path (the muscles of the heart regulated by the heartbeat), and less serious effects the closer they are to the 'start' (at the SA node), because the potential disruption becomes greater as more of the 'path' is 'blocked' from its 'end' point. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type I second-degree heart block, also called Mobitz Type I or Wenckebachs AV block-The electrical signals become increasingly delayed with each heartbeat, causing a beat to be missed. (epnet.com)

  • The American Heart Association recommends ECG treadmill testing as the first choice for patients with medium risk of coronary heart disease according to risk factors of smoking, family history of coronary artery stenosis, hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2013, in its "Exercise Standards for Testing and Training", the AHA indicated that high frequency QRS analysis during ECG treadmill test have useful test performance for detection of coronary heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Males tend to have more seizures, kidney disease, serositis (inflammation of tissues lining the lungs and heart), skin problems, and peripheral neuropathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • has assessed the prognostic value of measures of heart rate variability, and pathophysiological processes underlying the changes found in patients prone to ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, and hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypertension
  • He has served on the editorial board for many cardiology journals in the world such as Cardiovascular Research, Cardiovascular Risk, Circulation, Hypertension, the British Heart Journal, Clinical & Experimental Physiology & Pharmacology, and the Journal of Ambulatory Monitoring. (wikipedia.org)
  • Wenckebach
  • The term "Wenckebach block" is also used for some heart blocks, and can refer to a second degree type I block in either the SA node or the AV node, however the ECG features of the two are quite distinctly different. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type I second-degree heart block (also known as Mobitz Type I second-degree AV block or Wenckebach AV block). (medhelp.org)
  • Second degree SA blocks are broken down into two subcategories just like AV blocks are: The first is a second degree type I, or Wenckebach block. (wikipedia.org)
  • Note that this is quite different from the Wenckebach AV block, in which the PR interval gets progressively longer, before the dropped QRS segment. (wikipedia.org)
  • impulse
  • In an SA block, the electrical impulse is delayed or blocked on the way to the atria, thus delaying atrial depolarization. (wikipedia.org)
  • The difference between SA node block and SA node suppression is that in SA node block an electrical impulse is generated by the SA node that doesn't make the atria contract. (wikipedia.org)
  • pumps
  • The relative timing of this sequence, as well as the sequence itself, are important determinants of the effectiveness with which the heart pumps the blood. (encyclopedia.com)
  • This affects the way your heart pumps blood. (drugs.com)
  • Breathing continues normally throughout the attack, and, upon recovery, the patient becomes flushed as the heart rapidly pumps the oxygenated blood from the pulmonary beds into the systemic circulation, which has become dilated due to hypoxia. (wikipedia.org)
  • chest
  • A chest x-ray will show the size of your heart and check for fluid in your lungs. (drugs.com)
  • benign
  • Therefore, as you can see, a bundle branch block can signify something benign or something serious. (medhelp.org)
  • transient
  • If this has no effect (i.e., no evidence of transient AV block), a dose of 12 mg can be given 1-2 minutes after the first dose. (wikipedia.org)

  • diseases
  • Inflammation is the body's natural self-protective response to acute infection or injury, but the ongoing, low-grade inflammation linked to high-fat diets can harm cells and tissues and raise the risk of obesity, heart disease, cancer and other diseases. (membs.org)
  • Main
  • In total, Fifth Street stretches approximately one mile (fifteen blocks) along a southwest-to-northeast axis between the John Lynch Bridge (crossing the James River) to the northeast and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge to the southwest, which spans a valley containing the Norfolk Southern Railroad main line.
