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.

Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous.

"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."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
