Abstract - Valsalva and modified valsalva maneuver
[PDF]           
Mehmet Ali Kobat, Mehdi Karasu

 

ABSTRACT

Valsalva maneuver is a diagnostic and adjunctive method in non-medical treatment of supraventricular tachycardia, in physical examination, differential diagnosis and imaging-guided evaluation of congenital heart defects and valvular diseases and also to show the presence of autonomic neuropathy caused by diabetes, chronic renal failure, certain cardiomyopathies and neurological disorders. The modified Valsalva maneuver is more effective and less complicated variant of the standard Valsalva maneuver.

Key words: Valsalva, modified Valsalva, cardiovascular reflex
