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:
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.

"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]."
