What family history (5) is important in cardiovascular history?
Heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, sudden death, and lipid disorders
Shortness of breath out of proportion to level of exertion
What causes DOE?
High pulmonary vascular pressure and high LV pressure (LV failure) cause fluid to leak into alveoli and intersitium, decreases oxygenation of blood at alveolus (due to salt and water in alveoli), and makes the intersitium wider and less compliant.
Acute cardiac dyspnea
SOB caused by severe leakage of fluid into alveoli/intersitium
