Análisis de colesterol en la sangre - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si está viendo este video, su proveedor de atención médica le ha pedido a usted o a alguien que conoce que se someta a un análisis de sangre para medirse sus niveles de colesterol. Las pautas para el tratamiento del colesterol de los institutos nacionales de la salud recomiendan que se someta a un análisis de sangre cada 5 años si tiene 20 años o más. La prueba, llamada perfil lipoproteico en ayunas, mide sus niveles de colesterol total. LDL, también conocido como colesterol malo, HDL, también conocido como colesterol bueno y un tipo de grasa en su sangre llamada triglicéridos. Durante esta evaluación, se le tomará una muestra de sangre después de no haber comido durante 9 y 12 horas. Ayunar es importante para asegurar resultados precisos en la prueba. El objetivo del colesterol total debe ser menor a 200 miligramos por decilitro. Para la mayoría de personas, el HDL ideal, o colesterol bueno, debe ser de 60 o más. El LDL ideal, o colesterol malo, debe ser menor a 100. Y los triglicéridos en ayunas deben ser menores a 150. Si usted tiene niveles altos de colesterol en la sangre, tiene un riesgo mayor de desarrollar una enfermedad cardíaca. En la enfermedad cardíaca, los vasos sanguíneos, llamados arterias coronarias, se estrechan o bloquean con una sustancia serosa que contiene colesterol, llamada placa. Con el tiempo, la placa puede reducir o bloquear la corriente sanguínea rica en oxígeno que se dirige a su miocardio y causar un ataque cardíaco. Existen varios factores de riesgo para las enfermedades cardíacas: los factores de riesgo que usted puede controlar incluyen altos niveles de colesterol y triglicéridos en la sangre, presión arterial alta, diabetes, prediabetes, sobrepeso u obesidad, fumar, falta de actividad física, una dieta poco saludable y estrés. Los factores de riesgo que usted no puede controlar incluyen edad, género e historia familiar de enfermedades cardíacas. Si usted ya tiene una enfermedad cardíaca o factores de riesgo múltiples o graves, su médico puede reducir su objetivo de LDL a menos de 70. Su objetivo específico puede variar dependiendo en la situación de su salud. Pregúntele a su médico cuáles deben ser los objetivos de los lípidos.

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"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."

"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."
