Bodensteiner Medical Research (BMR) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit research educational organization. It studies the pathophysiology of venous blood clots that are called DVT (deep venous thrombosis), VTE (venous thromboemoblism), PDE (paradoxical emoblism), and PE (pulmonary embolism). BMR theorizes that venous blood clots cause the tachy-brady rhythm of the sick sinus syndrome.

In the 19th century, Dr Rudolph Virchow observed that venous blood clots formed inside legs, and noticed that clots in the lungs were the same as clots in the legs. He theorized that clots migrate from the legs through the heart into the lungs snf called migrating blood clots embolia.

BMR theorizes that venous blood clots have a life cycle and that each part  of the life cycle alter vital signs and cause unique syndromes. These include the sick sinus syndrome, exercise-induced asthma, narcolepsy, anoxic seizures, and sudden death.

Thrombophysiology explains the formation of clots and their life cycle.

The Life Cycle of Blood Clots: Formation, Migration, and Resolution

Virchow discovered that trauma, hemostasis, and hypercoagulation lead to the formation of blood clots in the leg called DVT. These soften over time and exercise squeezes soft pieces of DVT loose from the vein. DVT becomes VTE, which migrates into the heart. Venous emboli alter blood flow through the tricuspid and pulmonary valves, which causes palpitations. Next emboli move into the pulmonary artery and bump against the esophagus. Finally VTE stop inside the lungs and become PE.

  1. DVT in muscle cause inflammation and muscle become sore, swollen, warm, red, and weak. 
  2. VTE in the right atrium causes thrombotachycardia and premature atrial contractions..
  3. VTE in the right ventricle cause thrombobradycardia and premature ventricular contractions.
  4. VTE in the pulmonary artery irritate the esophagus and cause thrombo-ructus (burping)and GERD.
  5. PE in alveoli cause exercise induced-asthma, panic attacks, narcolepsy, hot flash fever, and anaphylaxis.

BMR theorizes that blood clots cause premature cardiac contractions, which changes the electrocardiogram (ECG). Current medical orthodoxy teaches that cell depolarization generate the electric potentials of the ECG.

In 1977 Findl and Kurtz studied artificial mammalian hearts that generated EKG like waves and BMR theorizes that clots alter the motion of electrolytes, which change the wave patterns of the ECG. Thus BMR theorizes that blood flow generates the waves of the electorcardiogram.

Thrombodextrocardia (blood clots in the heart) explains the tachy-brady rhythm of the sick sinus syndrome.

Thrombophysiology is complicated and it will melt your brain if you think of everything all at once, so take your time to see the whole picture, which is the Gestalt, and reflect on words from the past by Professor Galileo:

”All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”

Author: Cletus Gary Bodensteiner, MD

Dr Bodensteiner, aka Dr Bode, Dr Cletus Cogitatus is the son of Dr Cletus Herald Bodensteiner who graduated from Loyola Medical School in 1947. Dr Bode graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1972, completed anesthesiology training at UCLA Medical Center in 1975, and worked as Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, Madison during 1976.

Dr Bode served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at St. Michaels Hospital in Stevens Point, WI before returning to Long Beach, CA where he served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at Pacific Hospital of Long Beach. He moved to Northern California in 1999 and worked at Ukiah Valley Medical Center in Ukiah and Howard Memorial Hospital in Willits. He is married to Cindy Bodensteiner, RN, and they enjoy spending time with their four shared children and ten shared grandchildren. 

Dr. Bodensteiner was certified in CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). He assisted resuscitation of more than 350 cardiac arrests, and reviewed perioperative cardiac arrests with the Chief of Surgery. He is an active member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Heart Association, and the Heart Rhythm Society.

Contributing Author: Masashi Saito, MD

Dr. Saito aka Dr. Masa specializes in medical oncology and autoimmune diseases. He teaches anti-aging in Japan, the United States, and Europe. He is an expert on 5-ALA Hyperthermic Therapy for cancer treatment.

Dr. Masa and Dr. Bode share similar conclusions about the importance of metabolic acidosis after approaching human pathophysiology from different directions. Lactic acid appears to be an autoimmune toxin, which is the natural aseptic cause of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Dr. Saito published a popular book Korpertemperatur und Gesundheit, Wie wir durch Erhohung der Korpertemperatur unsere Vitalitat und Gesundheit fordern. 'Raise Your Body Temperature and Improve Your Health'; and he supports our kids project in Fukushima that gives aid to 290 homeless young students. He is a volunteer host of a popular antiaging talk show in Tokyo.

Michael Bodensteiner graduated with athletic and academic honors from Saint Anthony High School in Long Beach, California. He graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington and received a master's degree from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. He is a retired high school basketball coach, college English professor and the proud father of three daughters, two granddaughters and a grandson, born on Christmas day 2012.

Co-editor: Donald G. McEdwards, PhD

Dr. McEdwards received his Bachelor of Science from California State University, Northridge. He received his MS and PhD in engineering science from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a registered geologist, a certified general engineering geologist, a registered civil engineer, a certified hydrogeologist, and a licensed general engineering contractor.

Dr McEdwards perfected a technique for locating groundwater by using percussion sound waves against the ground. He measures electric potentials from two steel posts inserted five feet deep into the ground about eight feet apart. Striking the ground in the middle between the two posts with a percussion hammer causes sound waves to force underground water to ripple up and down.

Rippling underground water generates electric potentials as electrolytes rub against rocks. Electric potentials are transmitted by the earth back up to the two steel posts in the ground that are connected by wires to an oscilloscope. Electric potentials from underground water movement (2 millivolts) locate hidden underground water pockets.

The current interpretation of the electrocardiogram (ECG) is based on cell physiology. Orthodoxy explains that millions of ventricular cardiac cell depolarizations generate electric QRS potentials during the heartbeat and slow repolarizations of the ventricle generate electric potentials recorded as the T wave of the ECG.

McEdwards studied research by Findl and Kurtz published in 1977 using left ventricular/aorta mechanical simulators. "EKG like signals were generated by the motion of the electrolyte through the simulators".

McEdwards and BMR conclude that ECG waves make more sense if blood flow (electrolyte motion) from cardiac contractions generate the P, QRS, and T waves. Reinterpretation of the ECG will improve the understanding of the Q wave, the T wave, the long QT, and "re-entry circuits" observed inside the left atrium.
