Myocardial Infarction – ECGpedia

Posted: August 2, 2018 at 6:46 am

Ischemia occurs when part of the heart muscle, the myocardium, is deprived of oxygen and nutrients.Common causes of ischemia are: A short period of ischemia causes reversible effects: The heart cells will be able to recover. When the episode of ischemia lasts for a longer period of time, heart muscle cells die Continue reading

Stem Cell Basics I. | stemcells.nih.gov

Posted: at 6:46 am

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. Continue reading

Ventricular dysfunction in heart failure – Britannica.com

Posted: at 7:51 pm

Ventricular dysfunction in heart failure The major role of the ventricles in pumping blood to the lungs and body means that even a slight decrease in ventricular efficiency can have a significant impact on heart function. If the left ventricle encounters either absolute or relative functional insufficiency (called left ventricular heart failure, or left-sided heart failure), a series of compensatory reactions are initiated that may temporarily provide a return to sufficient ventricular function. Continue reading
