Uveitis

Uveitis is an irritation of the uvea, the vascular layer of the eye located between the retina and the sclera. The uvea extends toward the front of the eye. The parts of the uvea are the iris, choroid layer and the ciliary body. The most widespread form of uveitis is an inflammation of the iris called iritis. The exact cause for uveitis is seldom known. Infections, injuries and or autoimmune diseases might be related to the development. A uveitis can be severe. It can result in a permanent loss of vision.

Tachycardia

With the diagnosis of a tachycardia a patient’s heart rate is faster than normal. The heart beats of a healthy resting person are 60 to 100 times a minute. When having tachycardia the rate in the superior chambers or lower chambers of the heart, or even both, are increased considerably. An abnormality in the heart produces fast electrical signals. This malfunction happens when a patient suffers from tachycardia. Tachycardia can critically disrupt the normal heart function; there is a risk of stroke or tachycardia can cause abrupt cardiac arrest or death.
