I am having Chest pain on Top middle part from last 3 months. I had consulted to many Doctors and they did X-Ray's and in report hazziness found only and then accordingly someone gives pain killer some gives Calcium tabs but still it happening. Specially when on stretching or pressing on that part with little force also. please advice.
For e. G.I am suffering from dry cough for the last 2 weeks and I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest what should be done?
Having BP 150/90. Taking Amlodac 5 mg once daily. Now seems this medicine is not working. Any alternative? Or any advice?
I am 21 year women chest pain n upper abdominal pain nausea bt not vomit breathing problem pressure n tightness on chest slight headache n dizziness feel something stuck in middle of the chest n I am old patient of constipation acidity its my past history I feel tightness n pain last 2 weeks n my symptoms become worst yet.
My bp is normal with medicine. Sugar fasting and ppbs are normal with insulin 30 day time and 25 night time with glizid 80 mg daily once orally. Creatinine level gone up from 2-5 to 2-8 after glizis was added. Is this increase of creatinine 2.8 due to glizid. I am on KETOCHECK 3 TIMES SINCE FEB/16. I was given angioplasty at one place in Jan/16 and radiologically ok and stable.
My mother is suffering from high blood pressure. On 11th oct her bp was 170, on 12th oct it was 150 and on 13th oct it was 160 .so what remedy should we take? Before this their was no such problem infact her parents also do not have BP problem.
How many of us have heard about Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) before Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister late J Jayalalithaa was put on it for recovery? Hardly a handful. Patients who are placed on the device have 50-50 chance of survival and while it could not help the late Chief Minister, her condition put a spotlight on ECMO.
What is ECMO?
ECMO is a life support device that is put in place when a patient’s heart and lungs stop functioning completely post a cardiac arrest. When the patient does not respond to Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), the patient is put on ECMO.
Function of ECMO
The core function of the device is to separate carbon dioxide from the blood and add oxygen into it. It takes the load off from heart and lungs, providing critical time to the body organs for its treatment and recovery.
How does ECMO work?
The device drains blood from a vein, which is attached to an oxygenator machine. The machine then removes carbon dioxide from the blood and adds oxygen to it. Depending upon the condition of the patient, the warmed blood is either pumped into the body with the help of the machine or made to get back to the body through an artery.
How long a patient can be on ECMO?
- After seven days of being put on ECMO,there are chances of patient getting an infection.
- In case the patient contracts an infection, it is recommended to take the patient off ECMO support.
