Ischemic Attack, Transient definition: Brief reversible episodes of focal, nonconvulsive ischemic dysfunction of the brain having a duration of less than 24 hours, and usually less than one hour, caused by transient thrombotic or embolic blood vessel occlusion or stenosis. Events may be classified by arterial distribution, temporal pattern, or etiology (e.g., embolic vs. thrombotic). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp814-6)
transient ischemic attack definition: recurring, transient episodes of neurologic dysfunction caused by cerebral ischemia; onset is usually sudden, often when the patient is active; the attack may last a few seconds to several hours; neurologic symptoms depend on the artery involved.
Transient Ischemic Attack definition: A brief attack (from a few minutes to an hour) of cerebral dysfunction of vascular origin, with no persistent neurological deficit.
Transient Ischemic Attack definition: A brief attack (from a few minutes to an hour) of cerebral dysfunction of vascular origin, with no persistent neurological deficit.
Syncope definition: A transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., BRAIN ISCHEMIA). Presyncope refers to the sensation of lightheadedness and loss of strength that precedes a syncopal event or accompanies an incomplete syncope. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp367-9)
syncope definition: fainting due to a sudden fall of blood pressure below the level required to maintain oxygenation of brain tissue.
Fainting definition: Extremely weak; threatened with syncope.
Syncope definition: A spontaneous loss of consciousness caused by insufficient blood supply to the brain.
Amaurosis Fugax definition: Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)
Recorders, Electronic Storage, Data, Transient definition: Electronic data storage recorders that use a high-speed analog-to-digital converter to capture and hold the digital equivalent of an analog signal. These recorders have the ability to record the signal preceding the trigger point by having the unit recording continuously, using the trigger to stop the recording process and freeze the data in memory. The recorded information can be output from memory in analog or digital form and can be displayed on any analog device (e.g., oscilloscope, graph recorder).
Temporary definition: Not permanent; not lasting; lacking continuity or regularity.
Amnesia, Transient Global definition: A syndrome characterized by a transient loss of the ability to form new memories. It primarily occurs in middle aged or elderly individuals, and episodes may last from minutes to hours. During the period of amnesia, immediate and recent memory abilities are impaired, but the level of consciousness and ability to perform other intellectual tasks are preserved. The condition is related to bilateral dysfunction of the medial portions of each TEMPORAL LOBE. Complete recovery normally occurs, and recurrences are unusual. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp429-30)
Transient Hypertension, Pregnancy definition: HYPERTENSION that develops as a result of PREGNANCY and regresses post partum. It is hypertension without PROTEINURIA or pathological EDEMA.
Calcium Channels, T-Type definition: A heterogenous group of transient or low voltage activated type CALCIUM CHANNELS. They are found in cardiac myocyte membranes, the sinoatrial node, Purkinje cells of the heart and the central nervous system.
neonatal transient jaundice definition: transient unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia that occurs between the second and fifth days of life because the hepatic enzyme glucuronosyltransferase, required for bilirubin detoxification, is inadequate.
Transient definition: Transient
