Telma can cause high potassium. Levels till 5.1 don't require any dose adjustment since Telma is a heart protective drug. But if levels are higher than that, then you should consult your doctor for dose adjustments or something else to counteract the high value. Take care.

If the pain is in you abdomen, you might be suffering from gastritis or gastric ulcer. It is advisable to consult a doctor. 1. Have small frequent meals at regular intervals instead of 3-4 large ones. Have protein rich snacks like lassi/buttermilk/curd/dhokla/khandvi/steamed chicken momo/whole egg/besan chila in between main meals. 2. Drink 3 litres water daily but not with meal. 3. Avoid having tea, coffee, cold drinks, alcohol, smoking, tobacco, painkillers, fried or spicy food.

How to Diagnose and Manage Acute Coronary Syndrome

How to Diagnose and Manage Acute Coronary Syndrome

The word acute coronary syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that are caused by blockage of the blood flow to the heart muscles.  The most common result of this is myocardial infarction or heart attack as it is popularly called. Reduced blood flow leads to death of some portion of the heart muscle wall. While the word heart attack sounds almost fatal, it need not be the case. Knowing how to identify an attack and being aware of some simple measures can help save lives. 

Symptoms
The tell tale signs of a heart attack are as follows:

  • Chest pain and discomfort usually described as a tightness or burning in the chest region
  • Pain along the left side of the shoulder and neck, going up into the jaw, down to the arm
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Profuse sweating 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Dizzy or fuzzy feeling 
  • Tired, extreme fatigue
  • Anxious, apprehensive feeling 

However, be also aware that there are a lot of people who experience a silent heart attack. Women, obese, elderly, and diabetic patients can have silent attacks and depending on severity, either they go on with life as usual or can have a fatal attack.

Diagnosis
Once you are doubtful of a heart attack, the next step is to reach the closest medical facility for a diagnosis.  In addition to a detailed examination and history, the following two tests will be performed.

  1. Electrocardiogram (ECG): A 12-lead ECG will measure electrical activity of the heart and identify irregular electrical activity, which is indicative of a myocardial infarction.
  2. Blood tests:  Presence of certain enzymes in the blood, CK-MB and troponin are indicative of a heart attack.  A complete electrolyte profile also will be done, and increase or decrease of some electrolytes is helpful in diagnosing a heart attack.
  3. In addition to these two, chest radiography, cardiac angiography, echocardiogram, stress test, and computed coronary tomography may also be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Management
Once diagnosed, the first step would be to relieve the symptoms, negate the effects of reduced blood flow, and restore cardiac function. 

  1. Dissolve the clot: Using thrombolytics like clopidogrel 
  2. Nitroglycerin: To dilate the blood vessels and improve blood flow, especially to the heart muscles
  3. Anticoagulant therapy: Blood thinners are usually used to avoid blood clot formation; aspirin and heparin are the most commonly used agents.
  4. Drug therapy: Blood pressure maintaining drugs like beta blockers and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are also used
  5. Use of Statins: Statins are used to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood and stabilize plaque deposits.

In very severe cases, angioplasty and stenting or coronary bypass surgery may be required. Educating people on how to identify a heart attack and manage it is very useful and can help save lives.

Do not depend on lipid measurements to improve health. They have very little predictive accuracy. To prevent heart disease you should examine better methods.

Dear lybrateuser, -you have to exercise self control when faced with such situations -do yoga, meditation & deep breathing exercises at least 10-15 min daily, also do regular walking, jogging, swimming, these will help you get control over yourself when faced with provocative situation -try to avoid such situations if possible -sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep sleep & wake up time fixed, avoid watching tv & other gadgets before bedtime, instead read or listen to music -socialize, talk to friends, relatives it will have a calming effect.

Yes, Myocardial Infarctions damaging the cardiac muscles cause abnormal waves due to currents of injury and are seen permanently on ECG tracings like finger prints. These are even helpful in identity of a person when previous ECGs are compared.
