Avatar m tn What is the definition of acute Atrial fibrillation? Is it related to duration or symptoms? How the atrial fibrillation with fast ventricular rate should be treated in hemodynamically stable patients? What are the choices available? How the patient with acute ischemic stroke & atrial fibrillation with fast ventricular rate should be treated? Will the medicines controlling the heart rate not lower down the blood pressure, resulting in worsening of stroke?
Avatar n tn This would not be a mini stroke.The definition of a TIA is that symptons of the stroke disappear after 24 hours. So I would have him go back to the doctor and get a scan of his brain since it seems some memory was affected. With therapy and neuroplasticity he should be able to get better.Make sure he gets information on how to prevent a second stroke from happening.
1544968 tn?1548521929 On my way to work, I have been late. While trying to catch my train, I have experienced the first asthma attack in my whole life. Scary. I do not like to attract so much attention like I did just by grasping for breath during rush our at the main train station. Weird. Docs at hospital told me I should exercise more, drop weight, reduce stress and stop 'burning the candle at both ends'. Great advice. Guys, I know that!
Avatar m tn Can someone give me a good definition of the rash that comes with acute HIV. Describe it to the best of your ability. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
Avatar f tn My father has COPD and one month ago due to brain stroke ( stroke coverd his right side) he got paralised in LHS. suddnly his COPD attack increses and he put in to artificial ventilation. but within 32 hours he got out of it. After that he live nicely but every 2-3 days he got spazum and needed to gave oxygen supply with bipap. Doctor (Chest Specialist) was always telling that his lungs are weak but not that much which causes frequent spazum.
Avatar f tn This is the only MRI done since his initial stroke. The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia. The neurologist resident stated that my dad had a TIA (or stroke) 2 weeks prior to his stroke on February 19,09 (at home-it was never noticed).

Avatar n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
Avatar m tn If you still have numbness then it was not a TIA. By definition effects from a TIA resolve themselves in 24 hours. You need to see a neurologist and get some preventative care to prevent a full-blown stroke. The neurologist should also be able to direct therapists to help with what ever defivcits the stroke left you.

Avatar m tn If my memory serves me right, acute ischemic event is just the medical jargon for a stroke. Congratulations, it looks like you are in the clear.
Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar n tn Acupuncture treatment, used in its aftermath and recovery period can also be used in the acute phase. In recent years a large number of shows, stroke acupuncture treatment time is very important, no matter what type of stroke should seek early treatment.

Avatar m tn Most commonly, acute hepatitis C infection is defined as the 6-month time period following acquisition of hepatitis C virus. The definition of acute hepatitis C is irrespective to whether the patient has clinical signs or symptoms of acute hepatitis. The rationale for choosing 6 months as the time period to define acute infection is based on evidence that most individuals who clear HCV will do so by 6 months. http://hepatitisc.uw.
Avatar m tn Elevated MPV basically means that your platelets are larger than "normal" -- which can be because your body has recently made new platelets, and by definition, "young" platelets are larger than "mature" platelets. As the platelets mature, the size shrinks and the MPV will likely decrease.
