What is inadequate heart rate response to exercise?
Inadequate heart rate response to exercise means the heart does not speed up during exercise, says Thomas Lambert, MD, a cardiologist at MountainView Hospital. In this video, he says that pacemakers help treat this condition.
What is an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a device used to monitor heartbeat and heart rhythm. It is placed under the skin and attached to the heart through the veins with small wires. The device emits an electrical pulse if the heart beats with a dangerous rhythm or if the heart stops. The electrical pulse shocks the heart back to a normal rhythm.
Is the onset of coronary artery disease easily apparent?
A coronary artery must be narrowed to less than 30% of its original size before there is a serious reduction in the blood flow to the heart muscle served by that vessel. Generally, about 5% of the total cardiac output of blood goes through the coronary arteries; thus, there is adequate coronary blood flow to meet normal demands at rest even if the vessels are 70% to 90% occluded. If the coronary arteries are seriously blocked, however, blood flow may not be adequate for any increased demand, such as for exercise or an emotional upset.
