a classification for heart disease including; pericardium, myocardium, endocardium, heart valves, decrease of blood vessel and peripheral circulation.
classification for heart disease including; congenital anomalies, atherosclerosis, hypertension, infectious agents, and immunologic mechanisms
mitral valve is thickened and balloons back into the left atrium during systolic phase
mitral valve prolapse
defect on the structure of the heart and great blood vessels during birth
congenital heart disease
a complication following rheumatic fever. most pts with a history of rheumatic fever have permanent heart valve damage. The damaged heart valve is susceptible to IE.
Rheumatic heart disease
a microbial infection of the inner lining of the heart valves or heart
abnormal rise in blood pressure, aka the silent killer
the cardiac disability that arises from reduction or arrest of blood supply to the myocardium. it could be acute or chronic
Ischemic heart disease
chest pain caused by MI or lack of oxygen to the heart. It is the most common coronary artery disease, aka atherosclerosis. 90% of angina attacks are related to this
clinical syndrome caused by a deficient coronary arterial blood supply to a region of the myocardium that results in cellular death or necrosis.
abnormality of cardiac function results on the failure of the heart to pump blood at a rate necessary to meet the need of the body tissue
congestive heart failure
any variation in the normal heart beat, including rythm disturbances, rate, or conduction of the pattern of the heart
Inability of the heart to function properly, leading to emptying the ventricles during the systolic phase or incomplete filling of the ventricles during diastolic phase, it may include one or both ventricles
