In some cases, a portocava anastomosis is proposed, allowing the pressure of the gate system to be reduced, and therefore the need for collateral.The probability of rupture is increased in the event of large varicose veins, the presence of reddish streaks on them and the importance of the cirrhotic disease (CHILD classification).Preventive treatment for rupture is taking a non-cardioselective beta-blocker drug, which will lower portal pressure.When the pressure in the portal vein increases, as in cirrhosis, this collateral network develops.It consists in stabilizing the patient's hemodynamic state by blood transfusion, and by reducing portal pressure with various drugs (including Terlipressin).

Certain behaviors can also trigger this variation blood pressure such as taking cocaine, alcohol, or certain anorectic drugs such as amphetamines (methamphetamine, aminorex, dexfenfluramine, benfluorex).The rise in blood pressure mainly affects the right ventricle.Pulmonary arterial pressure is dependent on pulmonary capillary pressure, pulmonary blood flow and pulmonary vascular resistance according to the following formula: .If pulmonary resistance is low, pulmonary hypertension is essentially related to an increase in the pressure of the pulmonary capillary, an indirect indicator of the filling pressure of the left ventricle.Pulmonary artery pressure (pulmonary artery pressure) is pulsatile pressure.

If systolic blood pressure is elevated (>140) with a normal diastolic blood pressure ( . As evident in the Poisseulle’s equation, although flow rate is proportional to the pressure drop, there are other factors of blood vessels that contribute towards the difference in pressure drop in bifurcations of blood vessels.Automatic self-contained blood pressure monitors are available at reasonable prices, some of which are capable of Korotkoff’s measurement in addition to oscillometric methods, enabling irregular heartbeat patients to accurately measure their blood pressure at home.Blood pressure is the measurement of force that is applied to the walls of the blood vessels as the heart pumps blood throughout the body. It has been e...

This detachment most often extends from upstream to downstream and forms a pocket of circulating blood, the "false channel", separated from the "true channel" (the lumen of the artery) by a flap (formed by the detached wall.In all cases, the medical treatment aims to lower blood pressure as much as possible and quickly, with intravenous treatment.The first intervention, described in 1935, consisted of making a breach (fenestration) in the wall of the false channel, thus allowing an emergency exit for the blood to the true channel and reducing the pressure in the false channel.The benefit of lowering blood pressure was only described late (mid-1960s).It constitutes a tear or entry door, through which the pressurized blood enters and detac...

His blood pressure is 110/78 and there are reduced breath sounds in the right chest.As the lung is collapsed oxygenation of the blood will have reduced thus there will also be an accumulation in blood CO2 (Hypercapnia).Air is pumped into the lungs under a positive pressure; this creates a greater pressure inside the lugs than outside.The air that was trapped in the pleural space equalises in pressure with the lungs and may cause the lung to collapse a little.Once the pressure builds up enough, the air wants to escape and may do this by bursting through the lung wall.

High blood pressure is caused when blood is forced through the arteries at an increased pressure.They argue that blood pressure lowering drugs are the only way to ensure substantial reductions in blood pressure.The whole process of going to visit a G.P to have your blood pressure monitored can in itself increase blood pressure.suggest there are problems with restricting the measurement of blood pressure purely to those with high blood pressure.If blood pressure is 120 diastolic or below the risk of cardiovascular disease as a result of blood pressure is minimal but as it rises up to 140 diastolic the risk doubles and then by 160 over it doubles again.

McClelland & Hardman (2007) state that Fentanyl lowers the blood pressure due to vasoconstriction in which the blood vessels tighten.The anaesthetist informed the author that the cuff was too large and giving a false reading of a low blood pressure as the patient usually suffers from high blood pressure.Hilton (2004) reinforces this by stating that healthcare professionals must continuously monitor and accurately record patients’ blood pressure in order to determine their well-being.The theoretical sessions taught the author about the different techniques used to measure blood pressure, the rationale of why blood pressure is taken, how it is maintained, what effects blood pressure and how it is recorded.It is to be concluded that blo...

The exact mechanisms are not fully understood, but blood pressure (especially systolic) always transiently increases following alcohol and/or nicotine consumption.These medications help relax blood vessels by blocking the formation of a natural chemical that narrows blood vessels.Regular mild exercise improves blood flow and helps to reduce resting heart rate and blood pressure.Regular exercise should be done at least 30 minutes brisk walk perday .Additional dietary changes beneficial to reducing blood pressure includes the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension), which is rich in fruits and vegetables and low fat or fat-free dairy foods.Malignant or accelerated hypertension occurs when blood pressure rises rapidly and is con...

There is yet no commonly used blood test for the stroke diagnosis itself, though blood tests may be of help in finding out the likely cause of stroke (Hill M 2005).Most strokes are due to blood clots that blocks the blood flow to brain.Patients are monitored and their blood pressure, blood sugar, and oxygenation are kept at optimum levels.High blood pressure, High blood cholesterol levels, Diabetes, Cigarette smoking (Hankey GJ.Atherosclerosis may disrupt the blood supply by narrowing the lumen of blood vessels leading to a reduction of blood flow, by causing the formation of blood clots within the vessel (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.1999).
