It stands to reason that the central blood vessels would be better filled during spontaneous ventilation, motivated by the lower intrathoracic pressure, more favorable conditions for venous return, and higher vascular distending pressures.
To date, all experimental attempts to establish complete right heart bypass in animals had failed, allegedly because (i) the circulatory force was not sufficient to drive the systemic venous return through the lungs without the right ventricular power source, (ii) staged "gradual" vascular remodeling was required to compensate the acute cardio-pulmonary hemodynamic changes from bi-ventricular circulations.
Assessment of the following is mandatory: position of atria and cardiac apex, location of aorta, bi-or trilobed lungs, sub-diaphragmatic venous return, position of stomach and/or malrotation, liver/gallbladder position, and the spleen (present/absent, splenuncules).
During diastole, the cuffs inflate from the calves proximally, creating a milking action, which raises diastolic aortic pressure while boosting venous return.
Exploratory laparotomy, which used to be performed for the diagnosis, yielded few characteristic findings in most cases and there can be as high as a 10% risk of post-operative thrombophlebitis owing to impaired pelvic venous return.
Surgical and circuit-related causes of low venous return were excluded and a presumptive diagnosis of Gelofusine anaphylaxis was made (Figure 1).
Partially anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVD) is in contrast usually a minor congenital abnormality, often first detected in adulthood.
The other congenital cardiac anomalies like atrial septal defect, patent foramen ovale and pulmonary venous return anomalies may also accompany the cor triatriatum.
By actively expanding the chest, you do two good things: You increase venous return to the heart and increase ventilation," he said.
