Heart valve disease: hemodynamic during physical exertion

2021-04-29 04:27 PM

Even in mild to moderate valvular heart disease, the patient's cardiac reserve decreases proportionally with the severity of valve dysfunction.

During exercise, large amounts of venous blood are returned to the heart from the peripheral circulation.

As a result, all the motivational abnormalities that occur in the different types of heart valve disease are much more severe. Even in people with mild heart valve disease, where symptoms can be difficult to notice at rest, severe symptoms often develop with heavy exercise. For example, in patients with damage to the aortic valve, exertion can cause acute left ventricular failure followed by acute pulmonary oedema. Also, in patients with mitral valve disease, exercise can cause so much blood in the lungs that severe or even fatal pulmonary oedema can occur after as little as 10 minutes.

Even in mild to moderate valvular heart disease, the patient's cardiac reserve decreases proportionally with the severity of valve dysfunction. That is, the cardiac output does not increase as much as during exercise. As a result, the body's muscles get tired quickly due to too little blood flow to the muscles.



Pathophysiology of cardiogenic shock

Urine formation: Reabsorbed glomerular filtration

Air in and out of the lungs: pressure causes the movement of air

Mechanism of urine concentration: osmotic pressure changes in different segments of the renal tubule

Absorption and excretion of potassium through the kidneys

Prothrombin activation: initiates blood clotting

Pulmonary capillary dynamics: capillary fluid exchange and pulmonary interstitial fluid dynamics

Graphical analysis of high-volume heart failure

Estimated renal plasma flow: PAH clearance

Reduced sodium chloride, dilates arterioles, increases Renin release.

Calculate the glomerular filtration rate (GFR): the forces that cause the filtration process

Nephron: The functional unit of the kidney

Concentrated urine formation: urea contributes to increased osmotic pressure in the renal medullary

Red blood cells: differentiation and synthesis

Ammonia buffering system: excretes excess H + and creates new HCO3

Extracellular fluid distribution between interstitial space and blood vessels

The proximal tubule reabsorption: active and passive reabsorption

The endocrine regulates tubular reabsorption

Origin of lymphocytes: the body's resistance to infection

Physiological anatomy of the kidneys and urinary system

The kidneys excrete sodium and fluid: feedback regulates body fluids and arterial pressure

Iron metabolism: haemoglobin synthesis

Sodium channel blockers: decrease the reabsorption of sodium in the manifold

Self-regulation of glomerular filtration rate and renal blood flow
