    a bacterial inflamation that effects the endocardium or the heart valves
  24. cardiac tamponade
    compressionn of the eart produced by the accumulation of fluid in the pericardial sacas results from pericarditis or trauma, causing rupture of a blood vessel with in the heart (tampon = a plug)
  25. congestive heart failure
    • failure of left ventricule to pump adequate amount of blood to meet the demands of the body resulting in a "bottleneck" of congestion in the lungs that may extend to the veins, causing edema in the lower portions of the bidy
    • and fluid in the lungs

    • -HBP caused by effects of other disease 
  28. mitral valve prolapse (MVP)
    protrusion of one or both cusps of the mitral valve back into the left atrium during ventricular contraction resulting in complete closure and backward blood flow

    stress ECG
    holter ambulatory monitor  
    • gram = record
    • and electricsl picure of the heart represented by positive and negative deflections on a graph labled with the letters P, Q, R, S and t
    • -and ECG recorded during excerise-portable eck worn by the patient that monitors electrical activity of the heart over hours
