I would like to know the difference between Heart Attack, Cardiac Arrest & Stroke? And when heart explods like a bomb?

I would like to know the difference between Heart Attack, Cardiac Arrest & Stroke? And when heart explods like a bomb?
Heart attack is common term for Myocardial infarction, when there is 100% obstruction to blood flow in one of the blood vessels supplying heart. Cardiac arrest is sudden stoppage of heart leading to stoppage of blood circulation. This can occur with or without heart attack. Stroke is a term variously used. Some people use it for heart attack(Heart stroke) some people use it for brain stroke. There is no condition in which heart can explode like a bomb. If you swallow one, then its a different matter!!!

Dear Sajid, You are aware that your condition is triggered by the stressors of food. First thing: GIVE UP SMOKING and tobacco. No excuses, no delay, no reducing slowly. Simply STOP. This is causing palpitations, vibrations and the weakness is leading to your breathlessness and difficulty in taking oxygen as you experience. Change your life style Eat properly, exercise properly and think positive. Regards.

There's an electric circuit in the heart which is responsible for normal beats of heart. In wolff-parkinson'white syndrome, there's an extra electrical pathway between your heart s upper chambers, atria and lower chambers, ventricles and it causes a rapid heat beat -tachycardia, it's present at birth and fairly rare and present in 4 out of 1 lakh people, the episodes of increased heart beat are not life threatening and most people experience symptoms between ages of 11 and 50. Though not life threatening but serious heart problems can occur. Treatment is a catheter based procedure, known as ablation, it can permanently correct the heart rhythm problems.

Hypertension - Why Should You Cut Back On Salt & Oil?

M.Sc Dietetics and Food Service Management, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hypertension - Why Should You Cut Back On Salt & Oil?

Blood Pressure is nothing but a measure of force of blood pushing against your blood vessel walls.  High blood pressure or hypertension is caused due to a diet rich in saturated oils and high in salt, along with lifestyle factors like obesity and sedentary habits. Basically, any activity or diet that leads to the constriction of your blood vessels can lead to hypertension. Hypertension is called the “silent killer’’ because it has no symptoms unless you get your BP checked regularly. 

If left undiagnosed, hypertension leads to

  1. Strokes
  2. Kidney disease
  3. Heart failure
  4. Atherosclerosis or the clogging or hardening of arteries or blood vessels
  5. Aneurysms which means abnormal blood- filled swelling of an artery or vein


People who are at risk for hypertension are

  1. People with a family history of high BP
  2. Smokers
  3. Pregnant women
  4. Women on birth control pills
  5. People over 35 yrs
  6. People who are overweight
  7. Sedentary people
  8. Alcoholics
  9. People with a diet rich in oils and salty foods


Hypertension is a major lifestyle issue in the world today. But, it can be controlled by making lifestyle and dietary changes. 

  • Walking is very good for hypertensives and so is controlling the quantities of salt and saturated oils in your diet.
  • The most common means of managing High BP is using something called DASH which means ‘Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension’.
  • This means, as someone with high BP you should cut back on saturated oils or the oils that are solids at room temperature, as well as cholesterol and trans-fats.

All three can cause constrictions in your blood vessels by narrowing the lumen due to fat deposits on blood vessel walls putting more pressure on the blood vessels and causing hypertension. This effectively means that you have to cut back on oily foods of all kinds, fast foods and also fried foods. 

  • Red meats are associated with higher risks of cholesterol, so they should be avoided too. 
  • You should eat more whole-grain foods, fish, poultry, and nuts
  • Low salt preparations should be preferred
  • Avoid sweets, sugary drinks, and red meats.

The salt hypertension connection
Eating salt raises the amount of sodium in your blood and this puts a lot of strain on your kidneys whose work it is to remove excess water from your blood. This imbalance causes high BP due to the extra fluid.
This high BP puts extra strain on the insides of your arteries as well, and to cope with it the tiny muscles in the artery walls become stronger and thicker. This makes the space within arteries narrower and raises your BP.

So, do cut out extra salt, snack on unsalted stuff like pretzels and raw vegetables to keep a check on sodium levels. Also, do remember to read food labels very carefully to choose products that are low in sodium to keep your BP under control. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

A major international study found that niacin does not reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke in people with high cholesterol, but it does boost the risk of death.

Therefore, most people should not take the widely used supplement, also known as vitamin B3, according to an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine that was published along with the results of the randomised trial.

Aortic Valve Stenosis - How Can It Be Treated?

MBBS, Master of Surgery - General Surgery, Magistrar Chirurgiae (Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)
Cardiologist, Faridabad
Aortic Valve Stenosis - How Can It Be Treated?

The heart is a wonderfully designed pump that takes care of proper functioning of the body. There are two separate channels, through which pure and impure blood flows through. Blood flow in these two designated networks is one-sided completely and controlled by valves. There are 2 sets of valves as below:

  1. Aortic and pulmonary valves which controls blood flow from the ventricles to the aorta and to the lungs respectively
  2. The mitral and tricuspid valves control blood flow from the atria (upper chambers) to the ventricles (lower chambers).

These valves are meant to be elastic and fibrous and open and close freely to allow for blood flow. Due to various reasons, they can become stenosed (hard and narrow) and depending on which valve is affected, complications arise accordingly.

The aortic valve is extremely important in that its proper functioning ensures that pure, oxygenated blood reaches various parts of the body. Due to various reasons, this valve may not open and/or close properly. Some causes include calcium deposits, advanced age, rheumatic fever, endocarditis, etc. With age or deposits, the valve opening can become narrow and reduce the amount of blood flowing into the aorta. The following symptoms and complications arise out of this.

  1. The heart needs to put extra pressure to pump out blood into the aorta
  2. The left ventricle therefore grows thicker
  3. The symptoms will take a long time to manifest, as the heart will work on alternate measures, but after a certain point, symptoms will show up including chest pain, fatigue with minimal exertion, shortness of breath, and racing heartbeats.
  4. As the heart has its own compensating mechanisms, symptoms show up when the condition is much serious. Therefore, onset of these symptoms requires immediate medical attention.

Diagnosis: This could be diagnosed with routine medical exam when the heart is being checked or it could only be diagnosed when the symptoms are seen as above. Treatment is easier in the earlier case, and requires more rigorous attention.

Management: If the stenosis is mild and was detected on routine exam, then it needs to be monitored periodically. Surgery is usually not done, unless it is very severe. However, preventive measures can be taken including

  1. Avoiding over-exertion
  2. Heart-healthy diet can be taken to prevent further damage
  3. Reduce sodium intake
  4. Quit smoking

If the stenosis is severe, then surgery is the only definitive treatment measure. Valve surgery can be either a

  1. Balloon valvuloplasty – the valve opening is enlarged
  2. Replacement – valve replacement is usually done as an open heart surgery.

Though aortic stenosis is a serious condition, it is also rare and can be managed by adopting an overall healthy lifestyle.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
