La autora nos lleva de la la mano con una narrativa minuciosa y cargada de amor y de fe, por esos rumbos que nunca imaginó caminar. De tanto mirar a su hija enferma y de tanto mirar dentro de sí misma, su relato se convierte de una experiencia personal en un texto universal. <br />El miedo, los anhelos, el glorioso amor y el desánimo lacerante, la necesidad de creer, la fe, la incertidumbre; esos avatares emocionales, esos abismos y cúspides en el alma de la narradora y de su hija las convierten en seres humanos sin edad y sin tiempo, en un espejo en donde todos podemos encontrarnos. <br /><br /><br />

A Simple Guide To Atrial Flutter (Flutter in the Heart) Diag...

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Atrial flutter (AFL) is an abnormality of the heart rhythm, resulting in a rapid and sometimes irregular heartbeat.<br />It happens when the upper chambers of the heart beat too fast.<br />When the chambers in the top of the heart (atria) beat faster than the bottom ones (ventricles), it causes the heart rhythm to be out of sync. <br />Atrial flutter is a similar disorder to the more common atrial fibrillation (AFib). <br />The main danger of atrial flutter is that the heart does not pump blood well when beating too fast.<br />When blood is not pumped out properly, the vital organs such as the heart and brain may not get sufficient oxygen from the blood. <br />Types of Atrial Flutter:<br />1. Type I, or typical, is well defined both anatomically and electrically (movement counterclockwise).<br />It is always being interrupted by rapid atrial pacing, with atrial rates from 240-350 bpm.<br />2. Type II, or atypical, is not fully typically featured (movement clockwise).<br />It is linked with atrial rates above 350 bpm.<br />Atrial flutter can come and go; it is then known as paroxysmal atrial flutter.<br />More often, atrial flutter lasts for days to weeks and is known as persistent atrial flutter. <br />Main differences between AFL and AFib:<br />1. In atrial flutter, the electrical impulses are organized.<br />In AFib, the electrical impulses are chaotic.<br />2. AFib is more common than atrial flutter.<br />3. Ablation therapy is more successful in people with atrial flutter.<br />4. In atrial flutter, there is a "sawtooth" pattern on an ECG.<br />In AFib, the ECG test shows an irregular ventricular rate.<br />5. The symptoms of atrial flutter tend to be less severe than the symptoms of AFib.<br />People with atrial flutter are likely to develop AFib, even after treatment.<br />Both conditions carry increased risk of stroke, normally managed by drugs (such as warfarin or a newer anticoagulant).<br />Medical Heart Disorders causing Atrial Flutter:<br />1. Decreased blood flow to the heart (ischemia) due to coronary heart disease<br />2. High blood pressure (hypertension)<br />3. Disease of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)<br />4. Abnormalities of the heart valves<br />5. An abnormally enlarged chamber of the heart (hypertrophy) <br />Symptoms:<br />1. Fast heart rate<br />2. A fluttering feeling in the chest<br />3. Shortness of breath <br />4. Pressure or tightness in the chest<br />5. Dizziness or lightheaded<br />6. Anxiety<br />7. Trouble doing everyday activities because of fatigue<br />Diagnosis:<br />Doctors begin to diagnose possible AFL if the heartbeat at rest goes above 100 beat per minute.<br />Electrocardiogram measures and records the electrical impulses controlling the beating of the heart.<br />The purpose of a mobile ECG is to take reported proof of the arrhythmia.<br />Echocardiograms use ultrasound to measure the flow of blood through the heart and blood vessels.<br />EP (electrophysiology) studies are a more invasive way to record heart rhythm with a catether to the heart.<br />Treatment<br />The doctor’s main goal is to restore the heart rhythm to normal.<br />Cardioversion (defibrillation) uses electricity to shock the heart’s rhythm back to normal.<br />Some people with newly diagnosed atrial flutter convert to a normal rhythm spontaneously in 24-48 hours but may recur.<br />Most patients with atrial flutter, in people older than 65 years, should take a blood-thinning medicine called warfarin (Coumadin) to reduce this risk of stroke or aspirin<br />Rhythm control Medicines<br />1. Amiodarone (Cordarone),<br />2. Sotalol (Betapace),<br />3. Propafenone (Rythmol), and<br />4. Flecainide (Tambocor).<br />Rate Control Medicines: <br />1. Digoxin. <br />2. Beta-blockers <br />3. Calcium channel blockers,<br />4. Dofetilide<br />Radiofrequency catheter ablation may provide long-term successful treatment by obliterating some abnormal conduction pathways in the atria.<br /><br />TABLE OF CONTENT<br />Introduction<br />Chapter 1 Atrial Flutter<br />Chapter 2 Causes<br />Chapter 3 Symptoms<br />Chapter 4 Diagnosis<br />Chapter 5 Treatment<br />Chapter 6 Prognosis<br />Chapter 7 Atrial Fibrillation<br />Chapter 8 Palpitations<br />Epilogue<br />

Preferí entonces escoger la otra opción: vivir a plenitud. No sólo sobrevivir; no sólo cargar sobre la espalda mi dolor, sino enfrentarlo, para poder dar lugar a seguir disfrutando la vida. Manejar yo a mi dolor y no permitir que , por el contrario, mi dolor me manejara a mí. Transformarlo en algo positivo y hacer planes. Dar un sentido a todo lo que nos había sucedido e intentar que nuestra experiencia pudiera, de alguna forma, servir a alguien en circunstancias semejantes.<br />No elegí sólo sobrevivir, elegí vivir plenamente.<br /><br />Una pérdida todos la hemos sufrido: de un amigo, de dinero, un amor, un cambio de domicilio, un trabajo... siempre estamos perdiendo algo, dejando algo o alguien atrás. A cada minuto ni nosotros somos ya los mismos. Entonces pues, es algo inherente a la naturaleza humana, es algo que debemos asimilar. <br />Por supuesto que no es fácil, pero no hay mejor camino que aceptar la pérdida. En la vida hay cosas que no se nos preguntan, se nos dan ; lo único que podemos hacer es decidir la forma en que las vivimos, cómo las vivimos, no si las vivimos.<br />He elegido ser feliz. Soy feliz porque decido serlo.
