  • The Affect of Psychological Stress on the Heart Rate.
    The affect of psychological stress on the heart rate. Introduction: The human body is incredible machinery that can adjust to stressful situations and react in a “fight-or flight” manner by temporarily shutting off nonessential, at the moment, immune and digestive systems. When the body is ready for a challenge, heart rate increases, blood pressure rises and glucose production intensifies to supply large amounts of energy. These metabolic changes are caused by release of stress hormones...

    THE MISTAKES OF JOHNSON AND JOHNSON: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE PALMAZ SCHATZ STENT Johnson and Johnson created a revolution in the treatment of coronary-artery disease by the introduction of a medical device called a stent. This device is inserted in blocked arteries and prevents them from closing once an operation is over. The premature closing is known as restenosis. The use of a stent almost eliminated restenosis and halved the long term failure rate. The hugely successful product helped...

It is also the leading cause of hospitalization in people older than 65. Congestive heart failure means that the heart is still pumping blood, but at a slower rate than normal, so the pressure in the heart starts to increase as a result. This slower heart rate causes the heart to be unable to pump enough blood to provide the rest...

    Introduction The major function of the heart is to force blood in to a closed system of blood vessels within which the blood is confines and circulated to the entire body. Heart’s activity can be compared to a muscular pump equipped with one way valves. With each heartbeat, an electrical impulse travels through the heart and causes the heart muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart. These electrical impulses, transmitted through the heart, are spread throughout the body. This electrical...

    Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) Normally, the chambers of the heart (atria and ventricles) contract in a coordinated manner. The contractions are caused by an electrical signal that begins in an area of the heart called the Sino atrial node (also called the sinus node). The signal moves through the upper heart chambers and tells the atria to contract. The sinus node is a natural pacemaker that controls the rhythm of the heart. Electrical impulses travel from the natural pacemaker through...

    The Frank–Starling law of the heart (also known as Starling's law or the Frank–Starling mechanism or Maestrini heart's law) states that the stroke volume of the heart increases in response to an increase in the volume of blood filling the heart (the end diastolic volume). The increased volume of blood stretches the ventricular wall, causing cardiac muscle to contract more forcefully (the so-called Frank-Starling mechanisms). The stroke volume may also increase as a result of greater...
