Where do I find the best Cardiovascular software?

Where can I find a CD, software or a internet program that teaches Cardiovascular related procedures eg. EKG, PTCA and cardiac pharmacology?


What is a good video to follow along with that details a cardiovascular program?

I want something simple, possibly dance-ish, that is good for burning fat (cardiovascular) and that has a program that takes around 20-30 minutes to complete...
The usual amount of time you need to do.
Do any of you guys know of a video that is something like that? Preferably low-impact, I think that I've heard that that is better.
I'm a beginner so nothing complicated, and I'm not that interested in weights or anything (I have a gym I can go to for that).

Please, be helpful or shut up. I don't need any "go 2 teh gym and ride a bycicle"s or "Run everyday for about 30 minutes"

There are so many out there and it's hard to know what would suit you. You could research here for how to get started with DVD workouts:

Or go into the forums and search for questions/answers or ask the helpful enthusiasts in there:

Here's a specific discussion:

I prefer step aerobics at home - it's challenging for your coordination and burns a lot of energy in a small space - but if you're starting out I would recommend Hi Lo (floor) aerobics or you might like taebo.  (+ info)

While most people still think of cardiovascular trouble as primarily afflicting men, the reality is that heart?

While most people still think of cardiovascular trouble as primarily afflicting men, the reality is that heart disease has never discriminated between the sexes. In fact, for a variety of complex reasons, the condition is more often fatal in women than in men - it is also more likely to leave women severely disabled by a stroke or congestive heart failure. The common belief that pre-menopausal women are immune to heart problems is simply wrong. Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument?

Pre-menopausal women are not "immune" to heart disease. I don't think there is any school of thought that thinks that. Pre-menopausal women are by far, more protected than men of the same age. Women catch up with guys post menopause rather quickly.

Heart disease, coronary heart disease, to be more specific, is not a "man's" disease by any stretch of meaning. But men are hugely more susceptible to it than women are, specially in younger ages. Three is no comparison in the men population of 40's and women of the same age as far as number of heart attacks and survival.

Over all, men die from coronary heart disease than women in the United States if not the entire world.

According to American Heart Association, there were 831,200 deaths from CVS in 2006, one of every 2.9 deaths!

2006 final death rates from CVD were 306.6 for white males and 422.8 for black males; for white females 215.5 and for black females 298.2. (Death rates are per 100,000 population. The rates listed use the year 2000 standard U.S. population as the base for age adjustment.)  (+ info)

What percent of pulse increase is enough to be considered a cardiovascular exercise? ?

I took the pulse rate of dancers and horseback riders for 1 hour every twenty minutes to see if those activities were cardiovascular exercises. The average percent of increase varies from mid forties to upper fifties and I was wondering if that could be a cardiovascular exercise for girls ages 12- 18. Proof to support your answer would be great!

Right Steps to Prevent a Repetition of a Cardiovascular Episode?

do you have some suggestions to be followed after a cardiovascular episode in terms of some preventive medicines, or some hints about a diet, or perhps some physical exercises?
This is just to fix the mispelled word

The first step is to take the medications as prescribed by the Doctor. As a preventative medicine you can take a daily very small dose aspirin tablet about 89 mg.

The second step is to improve your diet. Control glucose levels with a high-fiber diet and reduce saturated fat. After you
have had a cardiovascular episode, eat 5 to 7 servings of produce and take at least one gram of omega-3 daily; and last but not least, eat fish often.

Then, never forget to exercise regularly. Ask your Doctor for an exercise program of at lest 30 minutes a day. The best one is to walk. Take the habit to walk at least 30 minutes daily. Better if you are with friends not to get bored.  (+ info)

Where i can find medical journals related to cardiovascular disease?

Go to the college or university nearest you and search in their medical library. There are lots!  (+ info)

What kind of cervical infections are common during pregnancy?

I had an emergency doctor's visit today to figure out why I'd been spotting off and on and he mentioned that he thinks it is a cervical infection. I was just wondering what kind of cervical infections there are and how dangerous they are.

Here's an article for more information about the various cervical infections during pregnancy and what to do:
Bleeding during pregnancy: Why it happens, what to do
Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy has many causes. Some are serious, and some aren't. Know when to contact your health care provider.
Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy can be scary. It's not always a sign of trouble, however. In fact, most women who experience vaginal bleeding during pregnancy — particularly during the first trimester — go on to deliver healthy babies. By understanding the most common causes of vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, you'll know what to look for and when to contact your health care provider.
Bleeding during the first trimester
Many women experience light vaginal bleeding during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Possible causes of vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy include:
Implantation. You may notice a small amount of vaginal bleeding very early in pregnancy, about 10 to 14 days after fertilization. This "implantation bleeding" happens when the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of your uterus. It's usually earlier, spottier and lighter in color than a normal menstrual period, and it doesn't last long. Some women mistake this light bleeding for a period and don't realize they're pregnant.
Cervical changes. When you're pregnant, more blood flows to your cervix. You may experience harmless vaginal bleeding after contact to your cervix, such as after sex or a pelvic exam.
Miscarriage. Up to 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Vaginal bleeding is the primary sign of miscarriage. But bleeding doesn't necessarily mean you're having a miscarriage. Remember, most women who experience vaginal bleeding during pregnancy go on to deliver healthy babies.
Ectopic pregnancy. Sometimes an embryo implants somewhere outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. This is known as an ectopic pregnancy. An embryo implanted outside the uterus can't survive. And without treatment, life-threatening blood loss is possible. In addition to vaginal bleeding, an ectopic pregnancy may cause abdominal or pelvic pain.
Molar pregnancy. Rarely, an abnormal mass — instead of a baby — forms inside the uterus after fertilization. Vaginal bleeding is the most common sign of a molar pregnancy.
Infection. Some cervical infections cause bleeding in early pregnancy.
When to contact your health care provider
During the first trimester, if you have slight vaginal bleeding that goes away within a day, tell your health care provider at your next visit. If you have any vaginal bleeding that lasts more than a day, contact your health care provider within the next 24 hours. Contact him or her immediately if you:
Experience moderate to heavy vaginal bleeding
Experience any amount of vaginal bleeding accompanied by abdominal pain, cramping, fever or chills
Pass tissue from your vagina
What to expect next
Your health care provider will likely ask questions about the bleeding and do a physical exam, including a pelvic exam. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your health care provider may do lab tests or an ultrasound to assess your baby's well-being.
Typically, vaginal bleeding during the first trimester doesn't require treatment. Sometimes, however, your health care provider may recommend resting until the bleeding subsides. If you have a cervical infection, you may be given antibiotics.
If your health care provider diagnoses a miscarriage, you may choose to let it progress naturally or speed the process with medication or a minor surgical procedure known as dilation and curettage (D and C). During this procedure, the doctor dilates your cervix and gently suctions the tissue out of your uterus. Sometimes a long metal instrument with a loop on the end (curet) is used after the suction to scrape the uterine walls.
If you have an ectopic or molar pregnancy, you'll need prompt treatment. Sometimes an ectopic pregnancy can be treated with medication. In other cases, surgery is needed. With a molar pregnancy, a D and C is needed to remove the tumor from the uterus.
Bleeding during the second or third trimester
As the cervix begins to thin out and relax in preparation for labor, the thick plug of mucus that seals the opening of the cervix is dislodged. When this happens, you may notice a thick or stringy discharge that may be tinged with blood. This "bloody show" is a normal sign of impending labor that may occur up to a week or two before delivery.
A bloody show near the end of pregnancy isn't cause for concern. But other causes of bleeding during the second or third trimester are more worrisome, including:
Miscarriage. Vaginal bleeding is the primary sign of miscarriage. Although miscarriage is most common during the first trimester, a risk still exists in the second trimester.
Preterm labor. Light bleeding in the second or third trimester may be a sign of preterm labor, especially when accompanied by regular contractions, dull backache or pelvic pressure.
Problems with the cervix. A cervical infection, inflamed cervix or growths on the cervix may cause vaginal bleeding in the second or third trimester. Occasionally, light bleeding may be a sign that the cervix is opening prematurely (cervical incompetence). This can lead to preterm birth.
Placenta previa. Painless, bright red vaginal bleeding in the second or third trimester may indicate placenta previa — a serious problem in which the placenta partly or completely covers the opening to the birth canal. The bleeding may stop at some point, but it nearly always recurs days or weeks later.
Placental abruption. Rarely, the placenta begins to separate from the inner wall of the uterus before birth. This may cause bleeding that's scant, heavy or somewhere in between. The bleeding is usually accompanied by abdominal pain.
Uterine rupture. Rarely, the uterus tears open along the scar line from a prior C-section. This may cause vaginal bleeding, intense abdominal pain and abdominal tenderness. If your uterus ruptures — either before or during labor — an emergency C-section is needed to prevent life-threatening complications.
When to contact your health care provider
Contact your health care provider if you have any amount of vaginal bleeding in the second or third trimester. You'll likely need an exam in the doctor's office or hospital. Seek immediate care if you have vaginal bleeding accompanied by:
What to expect next
To determine what's causing the bleeding, your health care provider will likely do an ultrasound and a vaginal exam. Monitors may be used to detect contractions and track your baby's heart rate. If you've lost a significant amount of blood, you may need intravenous fluids or a blood transfusion. Your health care provider will closely monitor your baby for signs of distress.
Depending on the cause of the bleeding and various other factors, treatment may include bed rest or medication. If you have a cervical infection, you may be given antibiotics. In some cases, an emergency C-section may be recommended.
Details are key to diagnosis
If you experience vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, don't be shy about explaining your symptoms. Describe how much blood you passed, what it looked like, and whether it included any clots or tissue. If you use pads to soak up the blood, keep track of how many. All this information can help your health care provider determine if the bleeding is a normal part of pregnancy or something more serious — and what to do next.

Good Luck to you.

Cardiovascular and Strength exercises on the same day or separated?

If I want to increase my muscle size and endurance but also improve my cardiovascular system, should I separate exercises for strength and cardiovascular on different days or should I run and bike everyday and do strength exercises only every other day?
If I do them on the same day though, albeit only some days, could I increase my strength though or would that just tire my muscles out too much to be effective?

Not sure if you know this, but when you burn fat you also burn some muscle. So i would recommend doing muscular endurance after you do cardio.  (+ info)

What happened when people got infections before antibiotics?

I used to get outer ear infections. I don't think they'd ever go away if I didn't have antibiotics; however, I cured one by myself once by putting alcohol in my ear. However, other infections aren't so simple. What if someone got a cut on their finger and it got infected before antibiotics? Would it ever go away, or would people die, etc?

Have you ever been to an "old graveyard" and noticed the ages of people when they died? They died in their 30s, 40s, the 60s was really really old. A lot of these people died with infections such as pneumonia. Many had wounds that would not heal also. However, there were many remedies that worked a little any way. Ginger root on the chest for coughing, barley in tea for infections of the skin, etc... The main problem with infection is spreading into the blood and then to other organs and cells. This is when you become septic and generally, without antibiotics, you will die. All medication comes from somewhere and a lot of healing meds that we use today come from plants. However, in the mass production of concentration in the medications, the meds of today work a whole lot better, as we can detect with the average age to live today is the middle 80s.  (+ info)
