I had a wheezing problem. My doctor take pft and it shows a wheezing problem. Doctor gave me formonide for daily 2 times and levolin they gave me for emergency. I do not know weather I use the inhaler properly means weather the ritacap dose goes properly into my lungs I do not know. Tell me the correct way.
Sir/mam My grandfather is left with only 40 percent of lungs and now he is suffering from blood pressure at the ratio of 36 (low bp)-60 (high bp). So, please tell me the future consequences he will face along with remedies we have to do for him. Waiting for your prompt reply soon. Thank you.

A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it. This condition is known as a ‘silent heart attack’, medically known as ‘silent ischemia’, occurring due to the shortage of oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
The causes of a silent heart attack are similar to that of a heart attack. They include-
- Obesity or excess weight
- Lack of exercise
- Disorders such as diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Age, usually above 65
- Heart diseases
- Consumption of tobacco or smoking
A silent cardiac arrest makes one more vulnerable to another heart attack that could be fatal.
The only method to diagnose if you had a silent heart attack is through imaging tests, such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram or others. These tests can show certain changes which might be indicative of a heart attack.
An analysis of one’s overall health and the symptoms can aid in deciding whether few more tests are required.
How would you prevent a silent heart attack?
- Get your cholesterol and blood pressure count tested regularly.
- Refrain from smoking.
- Be aware of your body and call on a doctor if you feel there’s anything which is bothering you.
