Vitamins May Help to Prevent Pre-Eclampsia in High-Risk Women
9/3/99 LONDON (AP) - Women at high risk for toxemia, one of the most dangerous complications of pregnancy, might avoid the condition by taking vitamin C and E pills, new research suggests. But the British scientists who conducted the study - the first to investigate the vitamins' potential to prevent the condition also known as pre-eclampsia - warned pregnant women should not rush to start taking large doses of the vitamins, since the findings are preliminary. Researchers haven't even yet determined if the high doses are safe for the developing fetus. The benefit suggested by the study must be confirmed in large-scale experiments, said lead researcher Lucilla Poston, a professor who runs the fetal health research group at Guy's, King's and St. Thomas' School of Medicine in London.

8. L'hypertension Artérielle Et Vos Reins
Publication de la fondation canadienne du rein. Informations g©n©rales pour le grand public.
L'hypertension artérielle et vos reins
La tension artérielle mesure la pression exercée par le sang sur les parois des artères de deux façons :
  • immédiatement après la contraction du cœur (pression systolique) ;
  • lors du repos du cœur entre deux battements (pression diastolique). C'est pour cette raison que la tension artérielle est exprimée à l'aide de deux chiffres. Si, par exemple, elle est de 130/85 mm Hg, cela signifie que la pression systolique est de 130 et la pression diastolique, de 85.
    Ces deux chiffres indiquent l'intensité de l'effort que doit faire le cœur et l'état de vos vaisseaux sanguins. Plus la circulation du sang dans vos artères est difficile, plus votre tension artérielle est élevée.
    L'hypertension artérielle est une tension artérielle supérieure à 140/90 mm Hg*. Un Canadien sur cinq souffre d'hypertension artérielle. L'incidence de cette maladie croît avec l'âge.
    *Les critères médicaux pour désigner l'hypertension changent de temps à autre. Veuillez consulter votre médecin.

    Table of Contents
  • Nomenclature Definition Changes in Pulmonary Circulation at Birth Pathophysiology ... Outcome
  • Nomenclature
    Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn is a cardiopulmonary disorder characterized by systemic arterial hypoxemia secondary to elevated pulmonary vascular resistance with resultant shunting of pulmonary blood flow to the systemic circulation. This pathophysiologic syndrome has been variously described as:
    • Persistent pulmonary vascular obstruction Persistent fetal circulation Pulmonary vasospasm Neonatal pulmonary ischemia Persistent transitional circulation
    Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) is the result of elevated pulmonary vascular resistance to the point that venous blood is diverted to some degree through fetal channels (i. e. the ductus arteriosus and foramen ovale) into the systemic circulation and bypassing the lungs, resulting in systemic arterial hypoxemia. This disorder can be classified into three forms dependent on the likely etiology of the pulmonary hypertension:
  • PPHN associated with pulmonary parenchymal disease , such as hyaline membrane disease, meconium aspiration, or transient tachypnea of the newborn as the cause of alveolar hypoxia
    • known as secondary PPHN or appropriate PPHN alveolar oxygen tension appears to be the major determinant of pulmonary artery vasoconstriction.

    Hypertension is the name of a condition in which blood pressure is persistently elevated (it stays high for a long period of time). Blood pressure is a measure of the pressure of the blood against the blood vessel walls. Persistent high blood pressure puts undue stress on the heart, blood vessels and other organs. The Causes of High Blood Pressure
    The causes of high blood pressure are a bit of a mystery. About 5% of patients requiring hypertension treatment can trace their high blood pressure to a physical cause such as kidney disease. Treatment of the disease reduces the symptoms of high blood pressure.
    But for of patients who undergo hypertension treatment, the causes of high blood pressure are unknown . Diet and stress are suspected as prime contributors to hypertension, but medical experts aren't exactly certain of all the mechanisms involved. Society's to Blame!
    Well, okay, maybe not to blame , but a much higher incidence of hypertension exists in Western society than in other cultures.
    Studies done in Africa examined Africans' blood pressure before and after entering a big city and adopting Western lifestyles. Blood pressure usually rose after the move to the city.

    The Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study
    Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can lead to damage to the eye's optic nerve and result in blindness. Open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of glaucoma, is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States and the number one cause of blindness among African Americans. Glaucoma usually has no early symptoms, and by the time people experience problems with their vision, they usually have lost a significant amount of their sight.
    How Open-Angle Glaucoma Develops
    Increased pressure inside the eye is an important cause of open-angle glaucoma. In the front of the eye is a space called the anterior chamber. A clear fluid flows continuously in and out of this space and nourishes nearby tissues. The fluid leaves the anterior chamber at the angle where the cornea and iris meet. When the fluid reaches the angle, it flows through a spongy meshwork, like a drain, and leaves the eye. Open-angle glaucoma gets its name because the angle that allows fluid to drain out of the anterior chamber is open. However, for unknown reasons, the fluid passes too slowly through the meshwork drain. As the fluid builds up, the pressure inside the eye rises. Elevated eye pressure can damage the optic nerve; a healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision. When the optic nerve is damaged from increased pressure, glaucoma and vision loss are the result.

    High blood pressure is called hypertension. hypertension does not mean emotionaltension. What Are the Consequences of Uncontrolled hypertension?
    Know Your Blood Pressure
    High blood pressure is called hypertension. Hypertension does not mean emotional tension. What it does mean is that the pressure, or tension, in your blood vessels is too high. "Bellissima" by Judy Lodwick, Australia High blood pressure is a silent killer. There are no symptoms until the pressure is too high, or it causes damage to vital organs, like the heart or kidneys. Everyone needs some blood pressure in their arteries. When your heart beats it pumps blood through the arteries (or pipes) to bring nourishment to the tissues. The force of the blood against the walls of the arteries is called the blood pressure. The systolic pressure occurs after the heartbeat and is the higher reading. The lower pressure, or diastolic pressure, is the pressure in the arteries in-between heartbeats. If the arteries or pipes become narrowed or clogged, then the heart has to pump harder to deliver the blood to the tissues, and the pressure in the arteries goes up. If the pressure in your arteries is 140/90 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) or more, and remains at that level, you have high blood pressure (hypertension). What Are the Consequences of Uncontrolled Hypertension?
