Treatment for High Blood Pressure - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you or someone you know has high blood pressure, this video will show you some ways to manage it. In most cases, the cause of high blood pressure, or hypertension, is unknown. This type of high blood pressure is called primary, or essential hypertension. Treatment for it includes lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet. If you are sensitive to the sodium in salt, your doctor may tell you to eat less salt and processed foods. Sodium may cause your body to retain water. This increases the amount of your blood and make sure blood pressure go up. Other lifestyle changes can lower your blood pressure. They include not drinking too much alcohol, getting regular exercise, losing weight if you need to, and quitting smoking. Your doctor may also recommend medications that act on your kidneys, blood vessels, or heart to help lower your blood pressure. Diuretics, commonly called water pills, cause your kidneys to move more salt and water from your blood into your urine. This reduces both the amount of your blood and your blood pressure. Beta blockers reduce the workload on your heart in two ways. They slow your heartbeat, and lower the force of each beat. Several types of drugs lower your blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels. This makes them open up wider. These drugs include ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, calcium channel blockers, and direct-acting vasodilators. It is important to stay on your medications as directed even if you are feeling better. Do not go off your medication unless your doctor tells you to. If you have any questions about any medications you have been prescribed, speak with your doctor.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

"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."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
