Pressure overloads stimulate concentric myocardial hypertrophy. The hypertrophied myocardium is stiffer than normal and relaxes (diastolic function) poorly. The thickened heart walls may outstrip their blood supply, and myocardial ischemia and ventricular arrhythmias may result. Myocardial failure Pressure overload Volume overload Pathophysiology Classification Subaortic stenosis Pulmonic stenosis Systemic hypertension Pulmonary hypertension Dilated cardiomyopathy (classic example) Chronic volume overloading diseases (see below) Myocarditis (viral, bacterial, immunemediated, toxic) Valvular insufficiency (mitral, tricuspid, aortic insufficiency) AV shunts (patent ductus arteriosis, ventricular septal defect) Chronic anemia (fluid-retaining process) Example Table 4-1.
Table 4-2 summarizes practical therapy for cardiac patients based on known cardiac pathology. Diuretics Diuretics are commonly a first-line therapy in the management of CHF. Diuretics aide in removing excess fluid Diseases that result in heart muscle weakness are included here. Contractility (systolic function) is generally poor; valvular insufficiency may be a secondary finding. Diseases of volume overload to the heart cause chamber dilation (eccentric hypertrophy) of the affected region or regions but usually exhibit normal systolic function.
Stertor and stridor are discontinuous sounds (gurgles and wheezes) that are heard without a stethoscope. They are indicative of upper large airway disorders. 3 Diagnostic Methods for the Cardiovascular System Radiology Thoracic radiography is helpful in localizing a problem in an organ system in patients with respiratory symptoms, that is, symptoms of cardiac, pulmonary airway, pleural space, or mediastinal disease. In patients with suspected cardiac disease, radiographs are important to assess changes in heart shape and size, as well as to assess the presence or absence of heart failure.
