I m caring for my mother who has been diagnosed with CHF. They state that she is only using 16% of her heart. She is having episodes of extreme heat coupled with SOB and heart palpitations. We ve been treating with ice packs and increased 02, and tried some lorazepam, which she doesn t like to use because it makes her sleepy. She wants to know what causes these episodes and if Tylenol would help with the hot flash component of these episodes. Thank you!

how long does it take to develop left atrial abnormality?, which is what patient s initial evaluation EKG showed. do EKG, with other labwork, to determine any underlying medical issues. can it be caused by a low dose of elavil after only 1.5 weeks?, don t believe it to be the elavil but want to make sure secondary to its known cardiac side effects. patient also history of chronic pain and long history prescribed opiates for that pain, and long history of insomnia
