Hydrochlorothiazide For High Blood Pressure and Fluid Retention Overview
Hydrochlorothiazide is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention. Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a group of drugs called diuretics, also known as water pills. These help the body get rid of excess fluid. This medication comes in tablet and capsule forms. Hydrochlorothiazide is usually taken once in the morning, with or without food. Common side effects of hydrochlorothiazide include frequent urination, weakness, and dizziness. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how hydrochlorothiazide will affect you. Take this medication only if it is prescribed for you by health care provider.
Blood Pressure What You Need To Know Michelle Tuzzolino, PAC
My name is Michelle Tuzzolino and I'm the Physician Assistant at New Jersey Associates in Medicine. I regularly see both routine an emergent cardiac condition under the supervision our staff cardiologist Dr Malloy as well as routine primary care under the supervision of our staff internist Dr Capitelli and Dr Saffa. Through a team approach to your health care I can prescribe medication as well as treatment plans both in our office as well as at Valley Hospital. Many people are unaware that they have high blood pressure due to a general.
Lack of symptoms. It is important that we diagnose and treat high blood pressure early to prevent many serious consciences. As blood is pumped throughout the body, it creates pressure within the arteries this is referred to as blood pressure. A blood pressure reading is usually given as two numbers the first number indicates the pressure during the heart's contraction it is called Systolic. The second number indicates the pressure when the heart is at rest. This is called diastolic. Optimal blood pressure is less than 120 over 80. important that you seek medical attention if you develop symptoms such as.
Blood Pressure Boys Town National Research Hospital
Blood pressure is basically a measure of strain on the vessels and so the top number is how much strain is on the vessels when your heart contracts and then the bottom number is the strain after the heart relaxes. Our goal is 120 over 80 but when you start to get somewhere between you know 120 over 80 to 140 over 90 that's considered that pre hypertensive area. Anything over 140 over 90 is considered hypertensive and that's when we start seeing problems. If your blood pressure is hanging out in that 150 to 180 systolic range,.
It's probably not going to lead to any symptoms. If it's really high it can cause things like headaches, vision changes, and that sort of thing, but it's a silent problem so a lot of times patients don't realize that their blood pressure is elevated. High blood pressure can lead to strokes, can also lead to heart disease, can lead to kidney disease and other complications as well. Initially we can treat it with diet and exercise, if that fails or if it gets to a point where it's so far out of control,.
That that's not helping, then we need to move on to things like medications and there's some very good medications to help high blood pressure but we like to get it early enough to where we can maybe postpone that or try to control a diet and exercise alone. If you have a problem with high blood pressure it's probably a good idea to check it a couple times a month, you don't necessarily have to check it every day. If your blood pressure is under control and it's never been a problem, it's probably.
Steven Ritz, MD Pediatric Cardiologist Nemours Cardiac Center
So as a pediatric cardiologist, one of the nice things about what we do is that by the time someone gets to me, all they can think about is My child is seeing a heart doctor. Does he have a heart problem And how serious is that going to be' So the nice part about my job is that I can get a history from the family, examine a patient, and get the testing I need to then give them an answer. And very commonly that answers is There may not be a problem.' And what I can provide for people is reassurance and confidence.
That everything is going to be okay. One of the reasons I became a pediatric cardiologist is I remember the day we got our stethoscope. And that's a big day in medical school. And I remember putting that on and spending some time listening and hearing the sounds. And I thought, My goodness, that's just the most fascinating thing I've ever heard!' So I knew maybe that day that I was going to be in a field that involved that, and then being, you know, trained to understand what we're hearing and how to use that.
It's been very interesting. We have to make sure we have a good listening environment, so we have to have tricks up our sleeve to get little babies who might be scared or cold, you know, to quiet down. So we're very good at making little faces and squeak, squeak, making little noises and doing things, anything so we can just make them feel happy and get them to smile and then be able to do our job. A patient will come to an office visit with me and that office visit probably is not going to be in Delaware at Nemours,.
But rather be in an office either in New Jersey, which is where I spend most of my time we also have offices in Pennsylvania. And if they need other care, they'll come here to Delaware. We also work as part of team in Delaware. We manage, help take care of the patients who have had surgery or require hospital care. And we share that responsibility as well, as part of the inpatient team. One of the things that I think is very important in the relationship we have with families.
Diagnosing and Treating Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Chloes Story
It actually goes by a couple names. There's pseudotumor cerebri, which is which is the more common name in the public's eye and then there's intracranial hypertension. It's a syndrome involving the cerebral spinal fluid which is a fluid that bathes the brain. It helped cushion brain provide nutrients and things like that. It has and pressure that it exerts inside the skull and patients with this condition that pressure's actually elevated. The thoughts are is that there's an imbalance between the production and reabsorption of the spinal fluid which then results in increased pressure and all the symptoms that we see with that.
We see all age range of patients. When they're very young to through adolescence. Chloe was 14 years old when she was referred to us by her eye doctor who had noted the swelling in her eyes. I went to my eye doctor for Miley he really checkup and they asked to to take a picture the back of my eye and they looked at my optic nerves and saw that they were swollen. She did not have any symptoms at the time. We performed the lumbar puncture which noted the increased.
Intracranial pressure and thus completing the diagnosis. My eye doctor at Children's said that if we would leave it untreated that I could go blind. Most of our patients we're able to get away with medical management. We have medications that decrease the spinal fluid that you produce to help bring back in that balance. I take two pills in the morning two pills at night before I go to bed every day. Once the symptoms resolve then we will wean her off the medication and typically we follow patients for about two years.
I think we were very fortunate to catch it as early as we did. She may be one of those fortunate few that do not ever have symptoms other than just the swelling in the eye or it may be simply that we just caught it early enough that she hadn't had time to develop those symptoms yet. We can actually do surgery on the optic nerve to relieve the pressure on that through cutting essentially cutting holes in the covering of that optic nerve to relieve the pressure. Some patients also too, can benefit from.
Diversion of their spinal fluid so shunting similar to how we do hydrocephalus that our colleagues in neurosurgery perform.And then some patients when their weight is also a factor we refer them to our healthy weight and nutrition clinic. You see the ophthalmologist first. They go through the full exam and get a really good look in the back to the eyes at the nerve which is the thing most interested in. Then after that they come and see us in neurology where we put that piece of the puzzle together with how they're doing clinically in terms of symptoms.
