ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an enlarged area in the lower part of the aorta, the major blood vessel that supplies blood to the body.

ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) due to decreased blood flow in the coronary arteries such that part of the heart muscle is unable to function properly or dies.

ACUTE LIMB ISCHAEMIA

Acute limb ischaemia (ALI) occurs when there is a sudden lack of blood flow to a limb. Acute limb ischaemia is caused by embolism or thrombosis, or rarely by dissection or trauma.

ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION

Acute myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack

ACUTE PULMONARY OEDEMA

Pulmonary edema is a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs.

ACUTE RENAL FAILURE

Acute kidney failure happens when your kidneys suddenly lose the ability to eliminate excess salts, fluids, and waste materials from the blood

ANAPHYLAXIS

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that needs to be treated right away.

ARRHYTHMIAS

Heart arrhythmia, also known as irregular heartbeat or cardiac dysrhythmia, is a group of conditions where the heartbeat is irregular, too slow, or too fast

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION/ FLUTTER:

There are many similarities between atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, there are also significant differences.Atrial flutter is an abnormality of conduction within the atria and, as with Atrial Fibrillation, the ventricles work normally.

BRADYCARDIA

Bradycardia is a slower than normal heart rate. The hearts of adults at rest usually beat between 60 and 100 times a minute.

HEART BLOCKS

Heart block is an abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly (bradycardia ). In this condition, the electrical signals that tell the heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles).

SUPRAVENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), also called paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, is defined as an abnormally fast heartbeat. It is a broad term that includes many forms of heart rhythm problems (heart Arrhythmia) that originate above the ventricles (supraventricular) in the atria or AV(atrioventricular) node.
