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:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

Philip C. Coulter

"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]."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

Geoff Wells

"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..."
