Is left ventricular dysfunction defined as left sided heart failure? What about both systolic and diastolic failure Grade 1? Is the Grading of heart failure based on the echo? Is not just a heart impairment? Is diastolic failure Grade 1 normal as we age? And is an enlarged heart "heart failure" or "cardiomyopathy??? Whats the difference between Heart failure and Congestive Heart failure? What if the patient suffers from both systolic and diastolic impairment, but EF is low normal, for around ten years, but suffers breathlessness, lightheadedness upon minimal physical task such as cleaning a mirror? Very confusing when reading the definitions. Aome HF patients are normal active others not so active and limited even if EF is normal, why is that? Thank you.
Albanian Templar im soo sorry to hear it, hope the best for you go through this, just never give up and always happy, it will help a lot, human body is soo mysterious, even people that have diagnosed will die but it will never be always
My heart rate and blood pressure seems to get lower and lower with time. My resting heart rate is 50 beats per minute (last time I checked, which was 3 months ago). I get dizzy every time I stand up and overall I feel weak. I went to the doctor and they seem to dismiss it. I just want to know if my heart is failing, I want to know how much time I have in case I'm dying. I've heard of patients being diagnosed with heart failure with a resting heart rate as low as mine. I live in a city with very incompetent ER doctors.
Please get your vitals taken and gets tests done to know if you are really are at risk, doctors and nurses are there to help you! It sounds like orthostatic hypotension when you describe feeling light headed after standing, but please tell the health care providers as much as you can! (I'm just a student atm)
I am doing awareness about pulmonary hypertension and heart failure is one of the results of PH that we as patients fear most. Is it possible that I may use some of your beautifully explained examples for our Afrikaans readers. Never seen HF explained so simple yet thorough that patients can understand what is happening in their bodies.
Great Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you considered - Patlarny Bloods Victory Principle (do a google search)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for preventing toxic blood and heart desease without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate at last got cool results with it.
I kind of remember it as - the heart is more towards left that is why we wear wedding rings in the left hand.
it is so because left side is stronger as it has to pump blood to whole body and not just lungs so muscles there are stronger, that is why why heart is more towards left.
it kind of means that left side pumps blood to the whole body.😕😕😕
+Daniel V oh yes right i see thank you so much! i was also thinking the same thing but i just ddnt know for sure. can you name other conditions of heart failure aside from cardiomyopathy? thanks daniel
You video is quite helpful for giving an overview of what is done once a person is diagnosed with heart disease. You should also do some lecture on how you can prevent from any heart disease. After I was diagnosed I started using www.doctorbing.com lectures which have helped me a lot in getting the kind of fitness I am always looking for.
I don't know who is behind these videos speaking but Thank you so much!! I am a visual learner and I can't even begin to tell you how much your videos have helped me actually understand these concepts that are taught in traditional lecture settings. Many Thanks again!!!
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
