bacterial endocarditis – inflammation of the inner lining of the heart, especially heart valves;

angina pectoris – chest pain;

arteriosclerosis – a process which causes stiffening or hardening of the walls of the arteries;

atherosclerosis – a form of hardening of arteries in which lipids (fats) collect in the walls of blood vessels causing blockage or occlusions (closures);

hypertension – high blood pressure in the arteries;

infarction – area of tissue which dies due to lack of blood supply (ischemia);

ischemia – insufficient blood flow to a tissue;

congenital heart disease – abnormalities in the heart at birth;

septal defects – small holes in the septa between the atria or ventricles;

tetralogy of Fallot – a combination of four congenital heart defects resulting in failure of enough blood reaching the lungs, ‘blue baby’;

mitral stenosis – narrowing of the mitral valve;

rheumatic heart disease – streptococcal infection which indirectly leads to pancarditis;

coronary artery disease – blockage of the two major arteries which circle the heart and supply blood to the myocardium;

angiocardiography – process of recording (x-ray) the heart and major vessels;

arrhythmias – abnormal heart rhythms;

atrioventricular node (A – V node) – specialized tissue between the upper and lower chambers of the heart which conducts an electrical impulse through the heart to cause it to beat;

bundle of His – specialized conductive tissue in the wall between the ventricles which stimulates them to contract and force blood out of the heart;

cardial catheterization – introducing a catheter (tube) into the heart and blood vessels for diagnostic purposes;

emboli (embolus, sing) – floating clots or other material carried in the bloodstream;

fibrillation – random, irregular contractions of heart muscle;

flutter – rapid but regular contractions of the heart muscle;

Ex. 8. Read and translate into Russian:

1. Endocarditis, an inflammatory alteration of the valvular or mural endocardium, was established by Bonilland in 1835.

2. Endocarditis may be due to an infectious agent or a noninfective inflammatory process.

3. Noninfective endocarditis may be one element of pancarditis in which the myocardium and pericardium are simultaneously involved.

4. If the pain lasts more than 20 minutes after rest or nitroglycerin, infarction must be seriously considered.

5. Pericarditis may be difficult to differentiate from acute infection.

6. Typically, pericardial pain is made worse by lying down and helped by sitting and leaning forward.

7. Patients with angina pectoris can be categorized into stable and unstable groups.

8. We consider the patient to suffer with unstable angina, when ischemic cardiac pain occurs at rest without obvious provoking factors.

9. Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea is an important symptom of left ventricular failure.

10. Dysfunction of either myocardium or the valves leads to circulatory failure and the development of symptoms.

1. The major risk factors for coronary disease are (курение, гипертония, повышенный уровень холестерина).

2. The clinical assessment of the cardiovascular system is derived from (опроса, врачебного обследования, электрокардиограммы, лабораторных анализов).

3. Cyanosis is the bluish discoloration of the skin, the mucous membranes and nail beds resulting from (повышенного содержания гемоглобина исключительно в крови и тканях).

4. The past history is often important in determining whether the heart murmur represents (врожденный или приобретенный порок сердца).

5. (Одышка и боль в сердце) may indicate major abnormalities of cardiovascular function.

6. The character of the discomfort in angina pectoris is often characterized as (кинжальная, острая, жгучая).

7. Common causes of pericarditis include (вирусную или бактериальную инфекции, туберкулез, повреждение соединительных тканей).
