La cardioversión - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si su ritmo cardíaco es anormal, es posible que su médico realice una electro-cardioversión, en la que se utiliza una descarga eléctrica para normalizar sus latidos. El corazón normalmente late a un ritmo regular de 60 a 100 latidos por minuto. Este ritmo estable y coordinado permite que el corazón bombee sangre de manera eficaz. Las señales eléctricas que viajan a través del corazón, controlan el ritmo cardíaco. Estas señales eléctricas comienzan en un grupo de células denominadas "nódulo sinoauricular" o "marcapasos". El nódulo sinoauricular o nódulo SA, se encuentra en la pared de la cámara superior derecha de la pared del corazón denominada "atrio derecho". Cuando las señales eléctricas llegan al músculo del corazón, hacen que este se contraiga y bombee sangre. Al ritmo cardíaco anormal se le denomina "arritmia". Durante la fibrilación atrial, el atrio se agita debido a las señales eléctricas caóticas en el corazón, lo que da como resultado latidos irregulares o anormalmente rápidos. Debido a los latidos anormales, es posible que la sangre se acumule en el atrio, lo que puede ocasionar que se forme un coágulo de sangre. Si el coágulo de sangre ingresa a la circulación general, podría causar un accidente cerebro-vascular. Antes del procedimiento se le conectará a una vía intravenosa. Usted será sedado de modo que dormirá durante el procedimiento. Los electrodos de EKG se colocarán en su pecho para controlar la actividad eléctrica de su corazón. Una vez sedado, se colocarán almohadillas o paletas de cardioversión especiales sobre la piel de su pecho, o en su pecho y espalda. Estas almohadillas o paletas, aplicarán un disparo eléctrico a través de su pecho hasta su corazón. Es posible que se repita el disparo varias veces hasta que el corazón recupere su ritmo normal. Después de la cardioversión eléctrica se le controlará de cerca en una sala de recuperación o en la unidad de cuidados coronarios del hospital. Una vez que desaparezcan los efectos del sedante y usted se encuentre en una condición estable, podrá 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..."

Steven G. Koeppel

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
