KMLE Web Definition Match-Search Results : 5       Page: 1

cardiac:
of or relating to the heart; "cardiac arrest"
Link: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
cardiac arrest:
asystole: absence of systole; failure of the ventricles of the heart to contract (usually caused by ventricular fibrillation) with consequent absence of the heart beat leading to oxygen lack and eventually to death
Link: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
cardiac arrhythmia:
an abnormal rate of muscle contractions in the heart
Link: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
cardiac cycle:
the complete cycle of events in the heart from the beginning of one heart beat to the beginning of the next; an electrical impulse conducted through the heart muscle that constricts the atria which is followed by constriction of the ventricles; "the cardiac cycle can be shown on an electrocardiogram"
Link: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
cardiac glycoside:
obtained from a number of plants and used to stimulate the heart in cases of heart failure

area of cardiac dullness:
a triangular area of the front of the chest (determined by percussion); corresponds to the part of the heart not covered by the lungs
Link: wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
sudden cardiac death:
A sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function. Most sudden cardiac deaths are caused by arrhythmias, such as ventricular fibrillation.
Link: www.clevelandclinic.org/heartcenter/pub/glossary/s...
advanced cardiac life support:
(ACLS) An educational course for advanced healthcare providers in which they are taught how to manage cardiac arrest victims in a hospital setting. Teaching includes; advanced airway management skills, cardiac drug usage, defibrillation and arrhythmia interpretation.
Link: www.ect-hk.com/ect_glossary_bot.html
sudden cardiac death:
(SCD): a death due to electrical problems in the heart. (It is different from a heart attack, which is heart muscle damage from a blockage rather than an electrical problem.) Sudden cardiac death is usually caused by ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation. An AICD system, however, greatly reduces the risk of sudden cardiac death.

24-hour cardiac monitor:
<apparatus> A recording device, worn by the patient for the purpose of monitoring the hearts rhythm and rate, over a period of 24 hours.(27 Sep 1997)

Cardiac Care Facilities:
Institutions specializing in the care of patients with heart disorders.

A premature contraction of the heart that is initiated somewhere other than the sinoatrial node.

Cardiac Glycosides:
Cyclopentanophenanthrenes with a 5- or 6-membered lactone ring attached at the 17-position and SUGARS attached at the 3-position. Plants they come from have long been used in congestive heart failure. They increase the force of cardiac contraction without significantly affecting other parameters, but are very toxic at larger doses. Their mechanism of action usually involves inhibition of the NA(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE and they are often used in cell biological studies for that purpose.
Synonyms: Glycosides, Cardiac, Steroids, Cardiotonic

Defibrillators:
Cardiac electrical stimulators that apply brief high-voltage electroshocks to the HEART. These stimulators are used to restore normal rhythm and contractile function in hearts of patients who are experiencing VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION or ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) that is not accompanied by a palpable PULSE. Some defibrillators may also be used to correct certain noncritical dysrhythmias (called synchronized defibrillation or CARDIOVERSION), using relatively low-level discharges synchronized to the patient's ECG waveform. (UMDNS, 2003)
