What cardiac risk factors can I control?
Intermountain Healthcare answeredSome cardiac risk factors are within your control. By making positive lifestyle changes and/or taking medications, you can reduce or eliminate the risk to your heart from the factors listed below:
What is collateral circulation?
Collateral circulation is the process in which a system of small, normally closed arteries connect and start to carry blood to part of the heart when a coronary artery is blocked, or to part of the brain when a cerebral artery is blocked. These arteries can serve as alternate routes of blood supply.
How often should I get treatment for a hemorrhaging disorder?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
Hemorrhaging disorders are most often treated with replacement therapy, which replaces missing clotting factors. Replacement therapy may occur two to three times a week as a preventive measure to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding. Therapy can also be delivered as needed to stop excessive bleeding.
