Lecture 6 Study Notes
Causes of heart failure:
Heart attack (myocardial infarction): blockage of the coronary arteries that
supply the heart with blood, resulting in the death of cardiac myocytes
oReduced blood flow, ischemia, results, causing oxygen starvation
High BP; Stenosis of aorta
oResults in increased after-load
oStenosis of the aorta refers to the aortic valve not opening properly,
resulting in high blood pressure and the heart having to work harder to pump
blood out (resulting in cardiac muscle hypertrophy)
Reduction in ventricular contractility
oovercompliance of heart (i.e. ability to expand optimally) results in hampered
CO
Obstruction of AV valves
oDecreased EDV
Third Degree Heart Block
oComplete lack of conduction through AV node
oP waves lacking QRS complexes
oAbove Bundle of His, heart is functioning well
oBut below that, the heart is unstable
Left Heart Failure/Congestive Heart Failure
oThe left ventricle fails or inadequately pumps blood into systematic circulation
oResults in build-up in pulmonary circulation
Pressure builds up
Blood backs up

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
