Left Ventricle, Matic, Ace Inhibitor discussed on Purity Products

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

We do sometimes find people, you know, we diagnose poor function of the of the left ventricle, which is the main pumping chamber, and we come across it. You know, rather, incidentally, perhaps they haven't avenue like cardiogram, and this and this studied further, and we find that the pump function of their heart is actually reduced and this may happen without a person developing symptoms. Of course, when the pump function is really severely reduced, then, you know, uniformly people will develop symptoms, but there is sort of intermediate range where a person may I be as him to Matic, and you know, the determinants of this. We think there are several things which may do this. We would always look to determine if someone had blocked arteries that being a common cause. But if if we determine if they don't have blocked arteries, and if they don't have valvular heart disease, you know, for example, a tight valve or narrow valve then we're considering things like a a post viral syndrome, potentially talks. And exposure things like that. So so you know, asymmetric left trickier dysfunction. We do see it. We see it in our practice. We probably have several furrows for this. You know a month? I would say, and this is something that patients would feel that their presenting symptoms like chest pain or shortness of breath. So interestingly people may have no symptoms at the time. This diagnosis is made. This may again be something that's found with an echocardiogram. I'm sorry. Incidentally, cardiogram or even an EKG, which then leads to an echocardiogram I'm in. So they may not have any symptoms at the time that this diagnosis is made. But when we find reduced LV Jackson fraction even at someone who's as symptomatic that isn't indication for treatment to avoid further deterioration of heart function. So we would start them medications, which for example might include a beta blocker or or an ace inhibitor related medications. Okay. So the good news is we can catch it. And then we can start treating which is awesome. What I found really fascinating about this. I'm a big technology guy was not only. Only the researchers that the artificial intelligence here were they able to find this identified in patients without symptoms, but it also had some unexpected accuracy in detecting individuals who are future risk of developing this disease. So we're getting the technology that's going to it's going to fight harder for us to live longer. It's we're living in a great time. Right now, if heart health news is important to you.
