The major causes of diastolic dysfunction are chronic high blood pressure, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis, coronary artery disease, restrictive cardiomyopathy, and aging. Diastolic dysfunction itself often produces no symptoms unless it progresses to the point of causing diastolic heart failure.This is the mildest form of diastolic heart failure and is referred to as an abnormal relaxation pattern. Patients are usually asymptomatic. Grade II – This diastolic dysfunction is characterized by increased filling pressure in the atrium and is considered to be moderate stage disease

My mother is 54 years old. She had a cardiac arrest and had little to no oxygen activity in her brain for almost 10 minutes. She gained her pulse after they pumped her heart but she has not woken up since 9 days. Now her EEG report shows that she has “severe electrophysiological dysfunction” what does that mean?

Children chest pain requires psychological help, not tests. No more tests, no more Drs. Chest pain in children is not heart trouble. Too much worrying will worsen the child's complaints.

Get BP checked. In the mean time when ever you have this problem take a glass of water, sprinkle ice cold water on face and take deep breath and force the air out with nose and mouth closed as you do when you r constipated - relax, go for morning walk for 30 mts and do deep breathing exercise for 10 mts. Report after 7 days.

Very rarely heart can just stop beating for no reason. But in almost all cases ther will be electrical imbalances in heartbeat which force a stopping . In any way electrical stoppage is not due to block in artery
