Arrhythmias

Image
 The heart is an organ that works due to the electrical impulses generated by cardiomyocytes. These impulses favor the heartbeat to be carried out in a continuous, coordinated and rhythmic way. Arrhythmias occur when there is an alteration in the rhythm of the heart. In adults, the normal heart rate ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. This rhythm is usually slower in young people and during sleep. Likewise, when exercising or in times of stress or tension, the heart rate increases. Causes of arrhythmia Arrhythmias occur when the heart's electrical system does not work normally, this may be due to: •Heart problems such as coronary artery problems, malfunctioning valves, cardiac failure. •Some drugs such as those used for hypertension or lung problems. •Congenital defects, due to anomalies present from birth. •Consumption of certain substances can also cause a heart rhythm problem such as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, or drugs. •Daily life situations such as stress,

Congenital heart disease. Coarctation of aorta

Image
 Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital heart disease, that is, it is a cardiac malformation that is present at birth. This anomaly represents 5% of congenital heart disease, it is not very frequent. Coarctation of the aorta consists of a narrowing of the artery called thus, aorta. This artery is responsible for carrying blood with oxygen from the left ventricle to the rest of the body. The aorta is divided into the thoracic aorta, which is the ascending part that leaves the heart along with the descending part that reaches the arms, and the abdominal aorta, which is the part that straightens and carries blood to the abdomen area. Generally, the narrowing occurs in the descending part of the thoracic aorta. It is common for this lesion to be associated with other congenital cardiac malformations, such as ventricular septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, bicuspid aortic valve, and certain mitral valve abnormalities. The association of congenital heart disease of the left area o

Congenital heart disease

 Congenital heart diseases are lesions that occur in the structure of the heart, the valves or the great vessels present at birth and that usually have an unknown cause. There is a wide variety of congenital heart malformations, it is very common for a baby born with a heart disease of this type to have a combination of different heart injuries. The incidence of this problem occurs in 1% of live baby births, according to the Fundación del Corazón. So it is a condition that is detected with some frequency. Risk factors for congenital heart disease The origin by which a fetus develops a cardiac malformation is not clear, however, there are factors that increase the probability that they appear: •Family history of congenital heart disease. •Parents with chromosomal diseases such as Down syndrome, Turner syndrome, etc. •Parents under 18 or over 35 years of age. •Maternal health problems such as diabetes, lupus, phenylketonuria, or rubella. •Consumption, by the mother, of to

Ischemic heart disease

 Ischemic heart disease, or coronary route disease, is a disease caused by narrowing of the arteries leading to the heart. This problem causes less blood flow to the heart and causes an imbalance in the supply of oxygen to the myocardium (muscle tissue of the heart). Cause and risk factors of ischemic heart disease The narrowing of the coronary arteries is a process that generally occurs gradually. Throughout life, fat (lipids), or also called atheroma plaques, accumulates on the walls of the arteries, if these plaques do not dissolve they are stored. Little by little, these plaques make it difficult for the blood to pass through the arteries and harden the wall of the arteries, becoming thick and inflexible. This problem is also known as arteriosclerosis. On the other hand, there are a series of risk factors, some modifiable and others not, that make it difficult for the atheroma plaques to disappear, such as: •Advanced age. •Male. •Family history of ischemic heart disease

What is bone marrow donation?

Image
 Bone marrow is a spongy matter found inside the bones. In this tissue are found the blood stem cells that have the ability to self-regenerate throughout life and produce white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. There are people who suffer from disorders of these cells, they begin to divide and grow in an uncontrolled way, generating serious diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. These diseases can be treated with a healthy bone marrow transplant. Bone marrow transplantation can be obtained autologously, with the patient's own stem cells, or allogeneic, that is, with healthy stem cells from another person. Donation in Spain is a voluntary and altruistic act, those who wish to be donors must register in the official registry in Spain is the Bone Marrow Donor Registry (REDMO). Bone marrow donation When obtaining stem cells is necessary to perform a transplant, a compatible donor must first be identified. The first options are usually relatives, parents and s
