Explanation Of Heart Examination Results?
I was just 43 years old echo just now, please help to explain the LV EDD 38mm, LV ESD 23 mm IVS Diastolic 10 mm, LVPW diastolic 7 mm, TAPSE 23 dec time 248, E / A 1.2 Pulmonary m PAP 5 mmHg, Ao max 0.8 m / s Ao VTI 16 cm, how much globalnormokinetic analysis, what does this mean? thank you before
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Echocardiography or often known as echo, is a supporting examination of the heart using high frequency sound waves to capture images of heart activity which will then be monitored on the monitor. Echo examination is also called cardiac ultrasound. This examination is carried out and read by a cardiologist or internist.
Echocardiography is used to check for abnormalities in the structure of the heart, blood vessels, blood flow, and the ability of the heart muscle to pump blood. The structure of the heart consists of 4 chambers, namely the right atrium, left atrium, right ventricle and left ventricle. Between each room will be limited by walls and valves. These valves are the mitral valve, the tricuspid valve, the aortic valve and the pulmonary valve. This valve serves to prevent backflow of blood that has been pumped.
Blood from the pulmonary veins will enter the left atrial chamber, then into the left ventricular space through the mitral valve, then to the aortic vein through the aortic valve, then blood will be carried throughout the body. This blood is oxygen-rich blood, also known as clean blood. Meanwhile, blood from the superior and inferior veins will enter the right atrial chamber, then into the right ventricular space through the tricuspid valve, then to the pulmonary artery through the pulmonary valve, to then be delivered to the lungs. This blood contains a lot of carbon dioxide, also known as dirty blood. Furthermore, in the lungs the blood will exchange carbon dioxide gas with oxygen, henceforth oxygen-rich blood will be conveyed back to the left atrial chamber through the pulmonary veins. And so it goes on. This work is seen through echo examinations by expert doctors and then also read by expert doctors.
Regarding the results of the echo supporting examination you have, read the conclusions or conclusions. From these readings we will be able to interpret the direction in which the interference that your specialist doctor has encountered. Meanwhile, what you have shown in the question above has not included the conclusion of the examination results. So it is difficult for me to interpret.
As for the results of supporting examinations can not be used as a benchmark to enforce a particular disease. Where, the results of the examination must be matched back with the results of clinical examinations by doctors and other supporting examination results, such as heart records.
For that, you should re-consult with the doctor who conducts the examination for certainty and clarity of the condition that you are experiencing. Or you can create a new question topic that includes the conclusion of the examination results so that it can be explained again by the doctor at HealthReplies.com. However, I will remind you again, the explanation that was conveyed still cannot provide certainty of your condition, because it must be matched with the results of the examination by the doctor and the results of other supporting examinations.
Thus hopefully useful.
