Necrosis or tissue death, usually due to inadequate or absent blood supply.
Industry:Medical devices
A procedure where portions of artery or vein from one area of the patient's body are used to reroute blood around a blockage in another area.
Industry:Medical devices
A specially designed wire used to guide the placement of a catheter or lead into a vessel.
Industry:Medical devices
A tube through which fluids or objects can be introduced into or removed from the body.
Industry:Medical devices
A disease in which a blocked artery prevents the blood flow to reach the heart's muscle and the tissued starts to die. Nausea, difficult breathing and chest, arm or neck pain are the typical symptoms. Also called myocardial infarction. It may lead to cardiac arrest.
Industry:Medical devices
A condition that stops the conduction of electrical impulses through the heart. May be caused by damage to cardiac tissue or by the disease process within the electrical impulse system. Condition may be intermittent or permanent. : First-Degree Heart Block - Delay in the conduction of an atrial impulse to the ventricle through the AV-node characterized by a prolonged P-R interval on an ECG. : Second-Degree Block - Intermittent blockage of atrial impulses at the A-V node. Conduction ratios are represented by the number of P-waves versus the number of ventricular responses in an ECG. Mobitz I is a type of second-degree heart block, also known as the Wenckebach phenomenon, in which the time between the atrial and ventricular contractions (P-R interval) becomes progressively longer until a P-wave is not conducted through the A-V node. Mobitz II is a type of second-degree heart block in which the time between the atrial and ventricular contractions is a consistent P-R interval, but an occasional P-wave is not conducted through the A-V node. : Complete Heart Block - A pathologic condition in which intrinsic conduction is blocked at any level in the A-V junction. Also referred to as third-degree heart block.
Industry:Medical devices
Another term for a heartbeat. The number of times the heart beats (completes a cardiac cycle of contraction and relaxation) in a minute. A normal heart rate typically ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute at rest.
Industry:Medical devices
Valves within the heart that open and close automatically to control blood flow into, through, and out of the heart.
Industry:Medical devices
A group of fibers that continue the electrical impulses to the ventricles that trigger contraction.
Industry:Medical devices
A diagnostic monitor worn by a patient that utilizes a continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) to detect abnormal changes in the heart's rhythm.
