Pacemaker For Heart Failure And Its Implications

Pacemaker For Heart Failure And Its Implications

The treatment of heart disease has come a long way and one of the more important and fairly common devices used to correct rhythmic problems of the heart is a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a device which is put inside the chest or sometimes even the abdomen to send electrical pulses to the heart to keep it beating at a normal rate.

Pacemaker for heart failure

However, the implications in case of heart failure make the usage of the pacemaker much more complicated. In such cases, the device used is a special type of pacemaker which is also called a bi-ventricular pacemaker. This device sends electrical signals to pump the ventricles of the heart so that they can pump at the same time.

There are many factors to be aware of before undergoing this treatment. Some of the factors to consider are mentioned below.

  • Requirement for a pacemaker in case of heart failure - When a patient has heart failure, their ventricles or lower chambers of the heart aren't able to pump enough blood into it. This could be due to physical problems with the heart or problems with the electrical system within it which cannot function normally. The doctor will perform multiple tests to determine whether a patient is the right candidate for a pacemaker for heart failure.
  • The procedure - In most cases the device is fitted into the chest and it is done without an open heart surgery. Precautions and post operative care for a minor surgery should be followed. The doctor makes a minor incision on the chest and then inserts the device along with three leads which are connected to the ventricles to ensure they keep pumping properly. Sometimes another device known as the ICD or the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator may be put in to shock the heart back to a normal rhythm in extreme cases where the change of sudden death from high heart rate is a possibility.
  • Immediate post operative care - As mentioned above, the surgery involved in putting a pacemaker is a minor one and the patient is usually discharged in next 2-3 days or may be more depending on the comorbidities & complexity of the scenario. However, in most cases, people can go home the next day fairly easily although some monitoring is done for the next few days with daily reporting.

Dear lybrateuser, -it is good to be active & keep yourself busy as you are but in my opinion you should cut down a little on your tennis time as it may be putting a little strain on your heart as tennis is a hectic game, keep sometime for a walk which will cool you down after the game as well as be beneficial to you -spare sometime in the morning for meditation & deep breathing as they help to reduce stress & keep the mind & body relaxed -consult your cardiologist for further investigations, like tmt test, echocardiography, to asses your cardiac status & prescribe requisite treatment.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Sertaline belongs to ssri (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) group of medicines, given for anxiety, depression, compulsive disorders and other medical conditions to soothe the nerves temporarily. If you have taken only 1 accidently, wait for effect to wean off gradually, take more water and ors & do not take fats or heavy food. Gradually medicine will be out of system but you will have to bear the side effects. You can take a tablet of antiallergic phenargan if anxiety persists. Serotonin is good mood hormone. Eat cashew nuts which are naturally rich in this hormone.

When heart attack came if we do not want again this action then what should we do.

When heart attack came if we do not want again this action then what should we do.
Prevention of a heart attack before or after a heart attack- no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/butter + a katori of assorted nuts to give healthy fats and proteins. No smoking/exposure to pollution. Lead a disciplined lifesyle with minimum negative tensions. Positive stress is good as it brings along good results. Loneliness is worse than bad fats. Keep busy in socially productive activities. Exercise regularly according to tolerance. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Reduce salt to bare minimum, avoid packaged foods as they have high salt content as preservative. Take more potassium like citrus fruits, oranges, lemons, amla, banana. You are only 24, as a social service pass on the tips of healthy living with as many people as you can get blood sugar test & total lipid profile done as a routine.

Symptoms of CHF that indicate your condition has worsened include: irregular heartbeat. a cough that develops from congested lungs. wheezing. shortness of breath, which may indicate pulmonary edema. YOu need to avoid water load and salt in excess Symptoms you may notice first include: fatigue swelling in your ankles, feet, and legs weight gain increased need to urinate, especially at night There are several medications that can be used to treat CHF: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) open up narrowed blood vessels to improve blood flow. Vasodilators are another option if you cannot tolerate ACE inhibitors. Beta-blockers can reduce blood pressure and slow a rapid heart rhythm. Diuretics reduce your body’s fluid content. CHF can cause your body to retain more fluid than it should.
