What are the signs of heart attack / stroke and how can it be taken care of / precautions to it.

PGD In Ultraasonography, Non Invasive Cardiology Course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
What are the signs of heart attack / stroke and how can it be taken care of / precautions to it.
Common ones may include: Chest discomfort that feels like pressure, fullness, or a squeezing pain that lasts for more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back. Pain and discomfort that go beyond your chest to other parts of your upper body, like one or both arms, or your back, neck, stomach, teeth, and jaw Unexplained shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort Other symptoms, such as: Cold sweats Nausea or vomiting Lightheadedness Anxiety, indigestion Unexplained fatigue Women are more likely than men to have additional issues, like neck, shoulder, upper back, or abdominal pain. These 10 lifestyle changes can help prevent a heart attack and heart disease. Eat for your future. Add plenty of fruits and veggies, grains, and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids like fresh tuna or herring to your diet. Eat less salt, saturated fats, sweets, and red meats. Avoid trans fats. Avoid food with “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” ingredients. Variety in your diet is a good way to get all the nutrients you need. Take it easy. Find a relaxation method that works for you. Yoga, meditation, dedicated time to unwind after work -- these can help keep your stress levels down. Stressful emotions such as anger and hostility may also lead to heart attack risk, so keep calm and be cool. Ban smoking. If you never started smoking, kudos! If you already quit, excellent. If you still smoke, stop. Talk to your doctor to find out what method will work best for you. Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of heart disease. Start now. In just 1 year you can reduce your risk of a heart attack. Keep tabs on your blood pressure. If it’s too high, your risk of a heart attack and heart disease goes up. Stress management, a healthy diet, and regular exercise can help you manage your blood pressure. Your doctor may also prescribe medications to lower your levels. Mind your blood sugar. Too much sugar in your blood can damage your arteries, even if you don’t have diabetes. Work with your doctor to control your levels. That may lower your chance of having a heart attack or stroke. Remember, you can’t tell if you have diabetes (or high blood pressure, or high cholesterol) based on how you feel. Be smart about cholesterol. When blood flows through your heart, it can drop traces of cholesterol, fat, and calcium, creating a buildup of plaque in your arteries. Too much of it makes a heart attack more likely. If you don’t know your cholesterol levels, ask your doctor for a blood test. Keep in mind, there are two kinds of cholesterol. One is bad for your heart (LDL), and the other can protect you from heart disease (HDL). You can improve your levels with exercise and a diet low in unhealthy fats. Some people may also need to take medicine that lowers cholesterol. Don’t wait to lose weight. Ifyou If you have extra pounds, it can put your heart at risk. Exercise and a good diet help. Ask your doctor or a dietitian what your weight should be and how to get there. Ask about aspirin. Talk with your doctor about taking an aspirin every day. In some people, this reduces the risk of heart attack. Get a move on. Hit the treadmill or the trail. Walk around the neighborhood or go for a swim. Whatever activity best fits your needs, do it! Regular exercise can prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure, and improve your cholesterol levels. Be social. Stay in touch with your friends and family. Research shows that people with more social support are less prone to heart trouble. As you grow your network and make new friends, know that you might be good for their heart health, too.

I'm a high blood pressure patient, so I want to know Which medicines are important for high blood pressure.

MBBS, MRCP (UK), PG Diploma In Lipid Management, MBA (Healthcare)
Cardiologist, Bangalore
I'm a high blood pressure patient, so I want to know Which medicines are important for high blood pressure.
The best medicine for high blood pressure is diet and lifestyle change! Make sure you keep your salt intake low, and do not exceed 4 gms of total salt intake daily. Moderate intensity exercise such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming and cycling can help. Make sure your doctor gives you the all clear for exercise before you start anything. There are a number of different medicines that can be taken if you have high blood pressure. It depends on a number of factors as to which one is the most appropriate. Your doctor is your best guide with respect to this as this is not an ideal platform to talk about medicines.

The patient is recently suffering from angina. Can he travel via 2 hour long journey.
No angina is a very serious condition and needs for the evaluation immediately. Angina Cause when there is a significant blockage in the blood supply to a certain part of the heart and the muscles pain because they don't get enough blood. So it is very important to know the severity and percentage of the blockage in the blood supply to know this angiography is the best test and without it there will be a major risk of heart attack you can send your other reports if you need further advice.

Hi, Thanks for your question. I do understand your pain and discomfort. 1) Check your vital sign (BP, PULSE,RR rate, TEmp)record it. 2) Do full blood count with differential 3) Take Iron injection 2 times per weekly with 100 ml saline if HB% is low. 4) Do an ECG to ruled out any heart problem present. Treatment will be as per report, I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to write to me. Wishing you all the best. Thanks.
