The Happy Heart
The happy heart beats like a clock.
Do you ever lie awake at night and wonder what makes the healthy heart flip and flop like a fish out of water? Suddenly the heart flutters like a humming bird and then slows down with powerful pounding palpitations that cause hot flashes and night sweats.
Doctors observe fast fluttering pulses followed by slow strong palpitations and call this condition the tachy-brady sick sinus syndrome. Its cause is idiopathic, which means unknown.
Bodensteiner Medical Research (BMR) studies holter electrocardiogram (ECG) information and simultaneous pulse oximeter data. Sequential venous compression devices were applied to sore legs of patients with phlebitis and the ECG recorded the tachy brady syndrome!
BMR theorizes that compression of sore muscles full of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) squeezes bloody clots into venous circulation. As clots (venous thromboembolism / VTE) migrate into the right heart pump they alter blood flow and cause the sick sinus syndrome! Thrombodextracardia (blood clots in the right heart) cause premature heartbeats with palpitations!
First, they cause premature fast atrial contractsions as they go into the right ventricle through the tricuspid valve. Next, they cause slow skipped heart beats called premature ventricular contractions as they pass through the pulmonary valve and move into the pulmonary artery..
Thus, fast premature atrial beats plus slow skipped premature ventricular contractions equals the idiopathic tachy-brady sick sinus syndrome.
Bodensteiner Electrocardiac Theory: A New Interpretation of the Electrocardiogram
- The heart is composed of two pumps intimately connected like Siamese twins
- The heart has four valves that connect six pumping parts
- The six pumping parts include four chambers and two great arteries
- Three connected pairs of pumps have sequential synchronized rhythmic contractions
- First: two atria contract together and fill up the ventricles
- Next: two ventricles contract together and fill up two great arteries
- Last, two great arteries have peristaltic contractions that pump blood away from the heart:
- In 1903, Dr Einthoven discovered the heartbeat generates electricity
- The heartbeat electrocardiogram (ECG) has three waves
- Action potential depolarization / repolarization explain ECG physiology
- Electric potentials move at the speed of light which obscurs the evidence
- Bodensteiner Research reinterprets the ECG in terms of blood flow
- Blood flow generates friction electrical potentials
- Normal atrial contractions generate friction blood flow P waves
- Normal ventricular contractions generate friction blood flow QRS waves
- Aortic and pulmonary artery contractions generate peristaltic blood flow T waves
- Blood flow friction electric potentials make sense out of ECG physiology
- Depolarization / repolarization ECG theories need to be revised and updated
New Pulse Oximetry Data:
New pulse oximeters measure the carboxyhemoglobin level. Venous acidosis caused by abnormal metabolism changes the carboxyhemoglobin level. There is a qualitative and quantitative relationship between carboxyhemoglobin levels and peripheral neuropathy. The same relationship exists in patients with phlebitis who have sore weak warm red swollen muscles with DVT's. Therefore, carboxyhemoglobin can be used a circulationg biomarker that evaluates venous blood flow that leads to abnormal metabolism which is the cause of venous acidosis. Venous acidosis leads to phlebitis, peripheral neuropathy and DVT's; and VTE into the heart, thrombodextracardia, causes the sick sinus syndrome.

Thrombo Associated Diseases:

- Exercise-induced asthma: PE of detritus
- Infection: anaerobic germ metabolism: glucose → lactic acid → blood clots
- Injuries: foot, leg, knee, or hip injury → blood clots
- GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease): night time emboli into the pulmonary artery compress the esophagus → burping during sleep → GERD

- Moderate aerobic exercise: golf, sex, bowling, gardening, walking, yoga, tai chi
- Sequential venous compression treats & prevents blood clots
- Ultrasound: helps resolve inflammation and phlebitis
- Vibration exercise oscillates bloody clots out of heart valves
What do doctors know about thrombodextracardia and carboxyhemoglobin?
Thrombodextracardia is a new blood clot theory: VTE causes the sick sinus syndrome!
Blood flow generates the waves of the ECG and the pulse oximeter evaluates venous blood flow!
- Blood clots inside heart valves cause palpitations with premature heart beats and pulse deficits.
- Cardiac muscle contractions cause blood flow.
- Moving blood generates friction electricity that create waves of the ECG.
- Electrocardiac events move at the speed of light which obscures the evidence.
- Three separate pairs of synchronized sequential cardiac contractions generate three separate blood flow friction electirc potentials that create the three waves of the ECG.
- Peristaltic contractions of the aorta and pulmonary artery create the T wave!
- The downward outward bulging of the apex of the vetricles at the start of systole creates Q waves!
The importance of thrombodextracardia, pulse oximetry & reinterpretation of the electrocardiogram:
- First, the EKG can diagnose blood clots at the tricuspid and pulmonary valves.
- Second, the pulse oximeter evaluates peripheral carboxyhemoglobin.
- Carboxyhemoglobin evaluates peripheral neuropathy.
- Carboxyhemoglobin locates the origin of blood clots.
- Blood clots (VTE) at the pulmonary valve cause skipped heartbeats.
- Continuous skipped heartbeats lead to fainting, anoxic seizures, and sudden cardiac arrest.
- PE of detritus causes exercise-induced asthma and narcolepsy.
- Pulse oximeters can evaluate skipped heartbeats and detritus.
- Cell phone monitors can diagnose impending fainting spells or narcolepsy and emit warning signals!
- Airline pilots, truck drivers, train engineers can take action to protect themselves and passengers from mysterious narcolepsy or fainting spells that cause tragic human errors.
- We can all improve our life style; and become stronger and happier as brain fog fades away.
