What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due to decreased cardiac output?

What are the signs and symptoms of left sided heart failure due to pulmonary congestion?

Left sided heart failure causes blood to back up into the lungs, which cause shortness of breath. It's usually a systolic heart failure, meaning the problem is in the left ventricle and it's inability to pump effectively to maintain cardiac output to perfuse the body. A way to understand symptoms is to think forward from the left ventricle: cardiac output is insufficient to deliver the needed oxygen and nutrients to the cells, so there will be fatigue, weakness, reduced ability to exercise, decreased ability to concentrate,decreased urine output, etc. Then think backwards from the left ventricle: blood backs up into the left atrium, then into pulmonary system. This causes shortness of breath with activity, or when you lie down, persistent coughing and white or blood-tinged sputum (phlegm), weight gain from fluid retention, just to name some.  (+ info)

signs and symptoms you might expect to find in a heat emergency patient?

All the following are signs and symptoms you might expect to find in a heat emergency patient with hot, dry, or moist skin EXCEPT:
a)rapid, shallow breathing
b)generalized weakness
c)dilated pupils
d)heavy perspiration

I think it’s d) heavy perspiration, but I’m not sure. If I’m wrong, can you correct me and tell me why? THANKS!

The except is c)dilated pupils.
The patient can prespire heavily, then when very dehydrated, the sweating stops, but there is no reason for the pupils to dilate.  (+ info)

What are the signs and symptoms of binge eating?

For most of my life, I have been chubby or fat. I had a baby almost four months ago, and now, everytime I eat, I feel guilty, but it makes me want to eat more! It's really all that makes me happy anymore. That and compulsive shopping. I just want to know what the signs and symptoms are for binge eating.

Binge eating is eating little-normal amounts of food and then out of the blue consuming portions that are in great excess (i.e. eating normally all day and then eating 6 candy bars later, etc...) If you consistently eat in excess than that is something different.

I also suffer from binge eating. I say suffer but really it is my own doing. I too feel like it is one of the only things that makes me happy. Usually I am not a compulsive shopper but this week I have been.

I just really came to the realization that I needed help. I hope you are able to come to grips with the reason for your binging and deal with it appropriately. Good luck!  (+ info)

What's the difference between 'signs and symptoms'?

When you are ill or on medication the doctors or literature will talk about 'signs and symptoms'. I don't technically recall with the difference is between the two.

I know there is a difference but I can't remember it, and even if I could...I don't know if I could articulate it well enough to get my point across in 'everyday' English.

Signs you can see (rash, bumps, etc.)

Symptoms you feel (aches, pains, etc.)  (+ info)

How can these 3 sign and symptoms deteriorate into major conditions?


If it was a rash it could be a sign of an underlying illness Diarrhoea can cause dehydration which can be dangerous. Fever depending on the cause could indicate anything from a virus to pneumonia  (+ info)
