Efectos de la insuficiencia cardíaca congestiva - Medical Animation
Si padece insuficiencia cardíaca, su corazón ha perdido la capacidad de bombear la cantidad de sangre suficiente para satisfacer las necesidades de su cuerpo. Es posible que sus paredes ventriculares estén débiles o dañadas y que no sean capaces de bombear suficiente sangre desde el corazón. También podría tener paredes ventriculares engrosadas rígidas que no permiten que su corazón se llene de suficiente sangre. Si padece insuficiencia cardíaca izquierda, su ventrículo izquierdo no envía suficiente sangre oxigenada a su cuerpo lo que hace que se sienta cansado y sin aliento. La insuficiencia del ventrículo izquierdo también aumenta la presión sanguínea en los vasos sanguíneos ubicados entre los pulmones y el ventrículo izquierdo. Este aumento depresión hace que el líquido salga de la sangre e ingrese a los tejidos de los pulmones lo que dificulta la respiración. Si padece de insuficiencia cardíaca derecha, su ventrículo derecho no puede contraerse con suficiente fuerza para impulsar la sangre hacia los pulmones. El resultado es una acumulación de sangre en las venas, lo que provoca una acumulación de líquido denominado edema en todos los tejidos del cuerpo. Con el tiempo la insuficiencia cardíaca en ambos lados del corazón debilita y agranda los ventrículos los cuales envían menos cantidad de sangre al cuerpo. Para compensar la disminución de la cantidad de sangre el sistema nervioso libera hormonas del estrés que incrementan la velocidad y la fuerza de los latidos del corazón. Lamentablemente, la liberación constante de estas hormonas del estrés hace que su insuficiencia cardíaca empeore ya que estas dañan las células musculares de los ventrículos.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
