isn't letter C the intercalated disc where the gap junctions are?
Apparently, in chronic CHF you see hyponatremia. Because CHF causes a decrease in cardiac output and circulating blood volume, which in turn triggers a compensatory response aimed at preserving blood pressure. This stimulates the body to retain both water and sodium.
i agree with Hayayah... the RAAS system is activated due to poor perfusion to the kidney due to decomp heart failure.
dysphagia from hit of nucleus ambiguus (CN IX/X/XI)
Sensation changes due to hit of lateral spinothalamic tract and spinal trigeminal
Check out rule of 4s if you haven't already
Yup, lateral meduallary syndrome or Wallenburg Syndrome. Whatever you want to call it. The hemifacial analgesia is from damage to the spinal trigeminal nucleus/tract, and you get the hoarseness from damage to the vagus and the body loss is from the spinal thalamic tract. You can also get Horner’s syndrome with this.
Lateral medullary syndrome = Wallenberg's syndrome
