The human body can seem very complicated and it is. However, it can help learning about the human body, and its’ organs like the heart, if we think of the body as a system of tubes. The most important tube is the cardiovascular system which includes the heart and its’ structures, veins, arteries and blood vessels. our heart is a pump. It’s a muscular organ about the size of your fist and located slightly left of center in your chest.
The human heart is comprised of four chambers. These include two on the right, called the right atrium and right ventricle, and two on the left, called the left atrium and left ventricle. The division protects oxygen-rich blood from mixing with oxygen-poor blood.
Four valves within the heart help keep your blood moving in the correct direction by opening only one way and only when they need to. These valves include the tricuspid, mitral, pulmonary and aortic valves. Each valve has flaps, called leaflets or cusps, that open and close once during each heartbeat.
In the beginning of a pumping cycle, oxygen-poor blood returns to the heart after circulating through your body.
From there the oxygen-poor blood fills the right atrium and then flows to the right ventricle, where it is pumped to the lungs through the pulmonary arteries. The lungs refresh the blood with a new supply of oxygen, which comes from the air that you breathe in. The video below helps explain the anatomy and physiology of the heart. Understanding A & P of the circulatory system will help understand heart injuries, their causes and the importance of a timely, and proper, heart injury diagnosis.
The heart, which is at the center of the cardiovascular system, is vulnerable to injuries in many ways. You may or may not think of the heart getting injured but it can. Ways heart function can be compromised are:
Assault and other blunt force trauma
Auto accidents including car accidents, motorcycle crashes and tractor trailer collisions
Birth defects such as congenital heart failure or congestive heart failure
Cardiac event that go undiagnosed or are inaccurately diagnosed
Defective medical devices including the Bard Inferior Vena Cava Filter (IVC filter), defective pacemakers, faulty defibrillator devices and heart stents
Medical malpractice including anesthesia errors, heart surgery mistakes, heart attack misdiagnosis, undiagnosed heart disease, AFib misdiagnosis, stroke misdiagnosis and others
Medication injuries caused by anesthesia, anabolic steroids such as testerone, anthracyclines (cancer treatment drugs), antipsychotic drugs (used to treat schizophrenia), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) & type 2 diabetes drugs (in particular the medicine rosiglitazone)
Workplace accidents and injuries including auto accidents, machine accidents, falls, assaults, crushing injuries, heart attacks and blunt force trauma
No matter what caused your heart injury you have rights and may be entitled to significant financial compensation and comprehensive medical benefits.
Atrial Fibrillation, abbreviated AFib, is a heart health issue where the atria beat out of sync with the ventricles. It can often be mistaken for a panic attack, anxiety disorder, cardiac arrhythmia or other heart condition. In many AFib misdiagnosis cases there is no further illness, injury or harm. In other cases injury, stroke and wrongful death can be the end result based on treatment plan being wrong or delayed. If you or a loved one have been injured or died due to an AFib misdiagnosis call our heart condition injury attorneys. Free case exams and no fee promise.
