The autonomic nervous system controls the electric impulses that tell the heart when to contract the muscles in its walls that create the pumping action.

An easy way to increase the speed is to run around a bit or be very startled by something. You can slow your heart by sitting still and breathing very slowly.

Good question:)

My left leg from knee to toes swells daily at least an inch. I sleep it goes to normal

Swelling of the leg may involve a noticeable distension of the shin or calf, ankles, feet or toes. Foot swelling may be a common occurrence which most of us will experience at some point in life after a long day of standing or sitting but may also be an indication of a more serious pathology as in certain cardiovascular disorders.
Recurrent or persistent swelling of the feet should be investigated by a medical practitioner especially if you have a history of cardiovascular disease or have noticed a change in color, sensation or mobility of the leg, foot or toe.
Blood rich in oxygen and nutrients flows through the arteries to the target area. Blood carrying deoxygenated blood returns to the heart via the veins where it is quickly routed to the lungs to be replenished with oxygen.
Blood flowing to the leg has to return to the heart through a group of veins with intermittent valves located throughout the course of the vein. This venous blood (blood in the veins that is returning to the heart) has to flow against gravity and since the pressure is usually lower at the feet, other muscles of the leg assist with 'pumping' this blood back to the heart. This muscle pump is most active when we are walking and least when we are standing stationary or sitting. Blood travels short distances up the vein and backflow of blood is prevented by a series of valves in these veins.
Working alongside the blood vessels are the lymphatic vessels which return lymphatic fluid (lymph) back up the body to empty into the blood system.
Swelling of the leg usually occurs as a result of an inadequate flow of blood or lymphatic fluid back up to the torso of the body. However other localized causes may further contribute to swollen feet, ankles or toes.

What is Automated external defibrillator?

Wikipedia says: An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient,[1] and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, first responder, and basic life support (BLS) level cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes.[2]

Disease of the heart can be many. The usual ones are coronary artery disease, arrhythmia's, valve issues, or heart failure. So minimally you should have diagrams showing the blood flow to the heart, and the electrical activity pathways. With these diagrams you can explain how a disruption at any point can cause certain problems. For example, an occlusion to the left circumflex artery would not produce the same harm to the heart muscle that an occlusion to the right coronary artery will. They will cause different problems with the heart. You can go over heart rhythms, A-fib, V-tach, normal sinus rhythm, Heart blocks etc. They all effect how efficient the heart pumps blood, if at all. Go over causes of heart problems and ways to prevent them. It is all information that can be found on the internet.

Blood pressure Question

Measuring your own blood pressure is an important way of monitoring your health. High blood pressure is a major health problem, which can be treated effectively once detected. Measuring your blood pressure between doctor visits on a regular basis in the comfort of your home, and keeping a record of the measurements, will help you to monitor any significant changes in your blood pressure. You should also keep an accurate record of your blood pressure, to help your doctor diagnose and possibly prevent any health problems in the future.
