La cardioversin - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si su ritmo cardaco es anormal, es posible que su mdico realice una electro-cardioversin, en la que se utiliza una descarga elctrica para normalizar sus latidos. El corazn normalmente late a un ritmo regular de 60 a 100 latidos por minuto. Este ritmo estable y coordinado permite que el corazn bombee sangre de manera eficaz. Las seales elctricas que viajan a travs del corazn, controlan el ritmo cardaco. Estas seales elctricas comienzan en un grupo de clulas denominadas "ndulo sinoauricular" o "marcapasos". El ndulo sinoauricular o ndulo SA, se encuentra en la pared de la cmara superior derecha de la pared del corazn denominada "atrio derecho". Cuando las seales elctricas llegan al msculo del corazn, hacen que este se contraiga y bombee sangre. Al ritmo cardaco anormal se le denomina "arritmia". Durante la fibrilacin atrial, el atrio se agita debido a las seales elctricas caticas en el corazn, lo que da como resultado latidos irregulares o anormalmente rpidos. Debido a los latidos anormales, es posible que la sangre se acumule en el atrio, lo que puede ocasionar que se forme un cogulo de sangre. Si el cogulo de sangre ingresa a la circulacin general, podra causar un accidente cerebro-vascular. Antes del procedimiento se le conectar a una va intravenosa. Usted ser sedado de modo que dormir durante el procedimiento. Los electrodos de EKG se colocarn en su pecho para controlar la actividad elctrica de su corazn. Una vez sedado, se colocarn almohadillas o paletas de cardioversin especiales sobre la piel de su pecho, o en su pecho y espalda. Estas almohadillas o paletas, aplicarn un disparo elctrico a travs de su pecho hasta su corazn. Es posible que se repita el disparo varias veces hasta que el corazn recupere su ritmo normal. Despus de la cardioversin elctrica se le controlar de cerca en una sala de recuperacin o en la unidad de cuidados coronarios del hospital. Una vez que desaparezcan los efectos del sedante y usted se encuentre en una condicin estable, podr volver a casa.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
