    A heart attack is usually characterised by the rupture of a plaque which can cause the spread of the cholesterol into the blood stream.
    Cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of pain, suffering and death around the world, today. Heart attacks are caused by coronary heart disease. This is caused by the narrowing of the coronary artery when substances like cholesterol block it. If not treated and revived on time, a patient suffering from a heart attack can meet a fatal result.

    So how can you prevent a heart attack?

    1. Cholesterol: We are all affected to some extent by what we eat. It is important to keep a check on your cholesterol, especially if it is on the higher side, so as to prevent a heart attack. Cholesterol is known to directly cause a heart attack, because if applies layer upon layer to the walls of the artery, and chokes them until they cannot handle the pressure any longer. So watch your food intake and bring down the blood lipid or fat levels with proper diet and exercise to alleviate the risk of a heart attack.

    2. Assess your Risk Factors: So are you at risk of heart disease and possible heart attack? This will very much depend on your medical history and allied ailments. If you are suffering from high cholesterol or even diabetes, your chances of having clogged arteries and a subsequent heart attack may increase manifold. Also, you may have a family history of heart diseases which can increase the risk of such ailments in your case. So, it is wise to assess your risk factors and take measures like regular checkups, medication where required and even other measures like diet and exercise.

    3. Blood Pressure: To prevent a heart attack, you can also keep your blood pressure in check. Constant spikes and dips can lead to a malfunctioning heart which can weaken the heart muscles and lead to a fatal result like a heart attack. Further, high blood pressure can lead to wear and tear of the inner lining of your blood vessels, which makes it that much more difficult for blood flow and circulation. So keep a blood pressure measuring machine or cuff at home, or visit your doctor regularly to keep tabs on your blood pressure.

    While these basic measures can help take care of the immediate and most direct causes of heart attacks, you can also avoid passive and active smoking, and indulge in a good diet with plenty of exercise to keep your heart healthy.

    What is Palpitation?
    Palpitation is a feeling of awareness of your own heart beat. It is usually described as heart rate being either too fast (racing), too slow or a sensation of missing a beat.

    Types of palpitations?
    Normal (Benign)
    - These palpitations occur as a response to physical or mental stress like exercise, fever, pain, fear, anxiety etc.
    - They are harmless and settle on their own once the precipitating factors disappear. They do not require any medical treatment.

    - These palpitations occur due to some underlying abnormality in either the structure of heart or the beating of heart.
    - These can be dangerous and at times life threatening. They may or may not settle on their own and require some medical treatment.

    Warning signs that suggest palpitations are abnormal?
    Palpitations are abnormal, if they are associated with chest heaviness, chest pain, uneasiness, sweating, weakness, giddiness, feeling of black out, fainting, nausea, vomiting, seizures. Palpitations are more likely to be abnormal in people who have some existing heart disease and these patients should report to their doctor at the earliest.

    What to do during palpitations?
    1. Stay calm.
    2. Call for help. If u are alone avoid driving, use a taxi or auto, go to your nearest hospital/doctor and try to get an ECG during the palpitations. If you are helping someone having palpitations, if they faint, call for help, start CPR if they remain unresponsive and take them to the nearest hospital.

    Which doctor can treat palpitations?
    Doctors who specialise in the treatment of palpitations are called Electrophysiologists. They specialise in heart rhythm and are capable of performing a variety of complex tests to identify and treat different types of palpitations.

    Which investigations are used to diagnose palpitations?
    ECG: Taken during palpitations and when the patient is normal is a very helpful tool.
    Holter: Externally applied recorder, which continuously records heart rhythm for 24 hrs.
    ELR: Extended loop recorder, is like holter, but it records rhythm for longer durations.
    ILR: Internal loop recorder is attached within the body for recording rhythm for long duration.
    EPS: Electrophysiology study, is the most sure shot test to diagnose, identify and treat

    What is EPS?
    EPS stands for Electrophysiology study. By this test a trained Electrophysiologist studies the conduction and formation system of heart beat, to understand the source, cause and type of palpitation. It is a simple and safe procedure of 2 to 3 hours and can be done as a day care procedure (by admitting the patient for a few hours in hospital, with discharge on same day).

    It requires fasting for 4 hrs, some standard blood investigations and is done with local anaesthesia and if required it can be combined with treatment like ablation in the same sitting.In the procedure Electrophysiologist take catheters into your heart to study and stimulate the palpitations and understand them. Once found they can use various techniques to stop the palpitations, the techniques are called Ablation.

    What are the treatment options available for palpitations?
    There are many options depending upon the nature of palpitations and condition of the patient:
    - Drug therapy
    - Cardioversion where either a drug or electric shock is given to stop palpitations immediately.

    Ablations using many sophisticated computer softwares
    Device Therapy like ICD (Internal cardiac defibrillator)
    Combination of all the above therapies.

    Your Electrophysiologist and you as a team can make a choice about the options that will be best for you.
