One should donate blood at least once in a year. Donating blood regularly has been shown in many reports to reduce chances of future heart attacks. Blood donation is also one of the best charities that one can do as it can save multiple lives through various components taken out of a single blood transfusion.
All those who are going for elective surgery should donate their blood well in advance and the same should be used at the time of surgery.
In the current medical tourism scenario, many patients who are Jehovah?s Witnesses refuse blood transfusion on religious grounds. They do not accept transfusion of whole blood or any of the four major components (blood cells, platelets, plasma and white cells). They are prepared to die rather than receive the blood. They also do not accept transfusion of stored blood including their own due to the belief that blood should not be taken out of the body and stored for any length of time. In such cases, every effort should be made to reduce blood loss, conserve blood and give drugs that can enhance hemoglobin formation.
A new concept called Bloodless Medicine has now become a reality where treatment, surgery and even emergency surgery can be done without using any blood.
HI, I've been experiencing lightheadedness upon standing with a fast heart rate for quite a while now, as well as quite frequent episodes of near-fainting. I also very often experience shortness of breath and chest tightness. Additionally I've had about three times in the past year where I've had such intense, sharp chest pain that I thought I might actually die of a heart attack right then (the last time it happened being the worst). These episodes of serious chest pain lasted about ten to fifteen minutes. The pain worsened with exertion and got better with rest. I got an ECG done a few months ago and it came back fine. What could be causing these symptoms?
Hi, My normal bpm come above 95 to 129 sometime 139 in normal condition. Please suggest Am I in danger sign?
Doctor. Actually I consulted. The cardiologist. In vellore, and also in hyderabad. They said that. My pumping is little bit low. Please help me with better solution!
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening is a way of detecting a dangerous swelling (aneurysm) of the aorta – the main blood vessel that runs from the heart, down through the abdomen to the rest of the body?
Cardiac ablation is a procedure that can correct problems associated with heart rhythm. It is a procedure performed by an interventional cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in performing procedures related to the heart. During the procedure, small wires called electrodes are placed inside your heart to measure its electrical activity. When the source of the problem is identified, the tissue causing the problem is destroyed.
Methods of performing cardiac ablation: There are two methods of performing cardiac ablation:
- Radiofrequency ablation: It uses heat energy to eliminate the problem area.
- Cryoablation: It uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy the cardiac tissue. The type of procedure you will undergo depends on what kind of abnormal heart rhythm you have.
Cardiac ablation is conducted at a hospital by trained staff. You will be given a sedative before the procedure to help you relax. A small and flexible tube will be inserted through a cut into one of the blood vessels in the area. The doctor will use live X-ray images to carefully guide the catheter up into your heart. Sometimes, more than one catheter is needed to perform the procedure.
Why is cardiac ablation performed?
Cardiac ablation is used to treat certain heart rhythm problems that medicines cannot treat or control. These problems may be dangerous if they are not treated. Common symptoms of heart rhythm problems may include chest pain, fainting, slow or fast heartbeat, light-headedness, dizziness, and paleness, shortness of breath, skipping beats, and sweating.
Risks associated with cardiac ablation: Cardiac ablation carries a risk of complications, including the following:
- Bleeding or infection at the site where your catheter was inserted.
- Damage to your blood vessels where the catheter may have scraped as it traveled to your heart.
- A puncture in the cardiac wall.
- Damage to your heart valves.
- Damage to your heart’s electrical system, which could worsen your heart rhythm and a pacemaker may be required to correct it.
- Blood clots in your legs or lungs.
- Stroke or heart attack.
- Narrowing of the veins that carry blood between your lungs and heart.
- Damage to your kidneys from the dye used during the procedure.
- Death, in rare cases.
Results of cardiac ablation: Although a single cardiac ablation can be successful, some people required repeated intervention. Your doctor will tell if you need any other procedure such as pacemaker implantation to treat complex heart rhythm problems. You may also need to take medications, even after you have had an ablation. Some lifestyle changes need to be made that improve the overall health of your heart, especially to prevent or treat conditions that can cause or worsen heart rhythms, such as high blood pressure. Your doctor may advise you to use less salt, which can help lower blood pressure, increase your physical activity, quit smoking, avoid drinking alcohol, eat heart-healthy foods, maintain a healthy weight, and manage strong emotions such as anger.
Follow your doctor’s instructions about wound care, medications, physical activity, and follow-up appointments. Some people may still have episodes of an irregular heartbeat after cardiac ablation. This is a normal reaction as the tissue heals and should go away with time.
