Poor circulation - sample pathological process in which the cardiovascular system is unable to provide blood flow to tissues and organs. The consequence of the process is the development of hypoxia
and slowing metabolism.
The cardiovascular system is one of the vital systems of the body that is associated with the transportation of nutrients, oxygen and vital hormones and neurotransmitters to all parts of the body.
Cardiovascular system consists of blood, blood vessels and the heart, which play an important role in the normal functioning of the metabolic processes of the body by transfer of nutrients to distant parts. Any change in the normal functioning of the blood leads to a cycle of disease acute circulatory disorders, which include both heart disease and vascular disease, which is the leading cause of death worldwide.
Poor circulation is classified into general and local.
General circulatory disorders are:
- · Disseminated intravascular coagulation;
- · Shock;
- · General blood congestion;
- · Blood clots;
- · The general venous plethora;
- · Blood thinners;
- · The general acute and chronic anemia.
Local circulatory disorders include:
- · Thrombosis;
- · Ischemia;
- · Infarction;
- · Embolism;
- · Blood stasis;
- · Venous congestion;
- · Blood congestion;
- · Bleeding and hemorrhage.
Circulatory disorders can be caused by disorders such miserdechno circulatory system as:
- · Angina;
- · Arrhythmia;
- · Atherosclerosis;
- · Arteriosclerosis;
- · Cardiomyopathy;
- · congenital heart defect;
- · cardiac ischemia;
- · Hypertension;
- · Hypercholesterolemia;
- · Peripheral vascular disease.
Causes of circulatory disorders
There are many reasons for which there is poor circulation. They can be divided into 5 groups - trauma, compression,
occlusive, the occurrence of tumors and vasospastic. Circulatory problems often occur in patients with certain diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, renal insufficiency, and in patients on dialysis.
The conditions under which appear circulatory disorders are:
- · Penetrating injury;
- · Aneurysms;
- · Vascular disorders;
- · Raynaud's phenomenon;
Symptoms of circulatory disorders
Symptoms of circulatory disorders are:
- · Pain;
- · Changes in the color fingertips;
- · Not healing ulcers;
- · Cold intolerance;
- · Numbness or tingling of the fingers;
- · Swelling area around the vessels;
- · Poor wound healing;
- · Cyanosis;
- · Fatigue;
- · Fainting;
- · Lameness;
- · headache;
- · chest pain;
- · Abnormal blood pressure.
Treatment of circulatory disorders
Treatment of circulatory disorders should start with the treatment reason why it was called in combination with diet, healthy diet low in fat and salt and high in omega-3 and vitamin E, regular exercise and smoking cessation, however, for the treatment of patients with acute circulatory disorders require surgery.
It is also possible the treatment of circulatory disorders with the help of anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, exercise and massage, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, electromagnetic therapy, vibrotherapy and complementary approaches to improve blood flow, which helps to heal tissue and relieve pain, reduce inflammation and fatigue.
