Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem - Is It Possible?

Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem - Is It Possible?

When the normal functioning of the heart shuts down suddenly due to heart disease or any other cardiovascular condition, then this is known as sudden death due to a heart problem. Every year, there are over 100,000 deaths globally due to this reason, as per various medical studies. Sudden Cardiac Arrest or SCD is a cause of death for many adults who may or may not be suffering from chronic heart disease. Let us find out more about this condition.

- Difference between Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) and Heart Attack: A myocardial infarction or heart attack can happen when there is a blockage in one of the arteries of the heart which prevents the passage of blood and oxygen to the heart's varied chambers. When the oxygen present in the blood does not reach the heart in adequate amounts and on time, it can lead to a heart attack. In the case of SCD or sudden cardiac arrest, the problem happens due to a shutdown of the heart after a malfunction in the electrical systems which can lead to varied irregularities. 

Accelerated heartbeats, fluttering and quivering of the ventricles which are also known as ventricular fibrillation, as well as other similar causes can ensure that the blood does not reach the heart on time, which can lead to sudden death. The patient usually loses consciousness within the very first few minutes as the blood does not reach the brain.

Symptoms: There are a number of symptoms that are associated with this phenomenon. While losing consciousness is one of the first signs, others include a racing heartbeat as well as heart rhythm problems and dizzy spells. The symptoms usually take place suddenly without prior warning and lead to a complete shutdown of the heart and its functions.

Causes: The main cause of SCD is a condition known as arrhythmias which is basically characterized by abnormal heart rhythms and vertical fibrillation which leads to disorganized impulses to be released from the ventricles due to which the heart cannot pump blood properly. It can lead to death within a matter of minutes if it remains untreated.

Revival: On an emergency basis, the patient will have to be given CPR by an expert at the emergency unit of the hospital. This is a manual process of retrieving the patient by pumping the chest and breathing into the patient's mouth. Portable defibrillators can also be used to revive the patient in such cases.

Risk Factors: Patients who have suffered heart attacks in the past and have a family history of heart disease and heart attacks, are at maximum risk when it comes to SCD. Also, factors like obesity and diabetes can increase the risk.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

Hello, single value of 130 fbs isn't significant. 2 consecutive higher fbs pp2bs value are of significance. Tell me your both fbs & pp2bs values, if both are on higher side, get done hba1c report. Also check your bp. Send your lipid profile report too.

Dear Sir, I have been prescribed Roseday 5 to be taken daily at bedtime. My question is that is it safe to take this medicine after having alcohol? If no then after how many hours of alcohol can one take this medicine?

Roseday is Rosuvastatin which belongs to statin group of medications for lowering fats. Overall, there are no specific health risks associated with drinking while using statins. In other words, alcohol won’t immediately interfere with or react with the statins in your body. However, heavy drinkers or those who already have liver damage due to heavy drinking could be at greater risk for more serious side effects. Because both heavy drinking and (rarely) statin use can interfere with liver function, the two together could put people at a greater risk of liver-related health problems. The general consensus is that drinking more than two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women could put you at a greater risk of alcoholic liver disease and possible statin side effects. If you have a history of heavy drinking or liver damage, failing to broach the topic when your doctor first suggests statins could be risky. Letting your doctor know you have been or are currently a heavy drinker will alert them to look for alternatives or monitor your liver function for signs of damage.

Hi. Doing angiography will tell you about the condition of your heart. If there are many plaques then the doctor may decide for an angioplasty or otherwise. But whether you get an angiography or angioplasty done does not negate taking care of your diet. It's not a negotiable option. Diet is the most crucial part of your health. Even after surgery if diet is not managed then you will have a relapse. Also these are lifestyle disorders and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the only cure...medication is just short term help.

मैं जब भी एकाएक उठती हूँ तो आँख के सामने अंधेरा हो जाता है फिर कुछ देर में ठीक हो जाता है। कभी कभी मेरे पैर में ऐसा लगता है जैसे कि कोई उसे खीच रहा हो और तेज़ दर्द होता है। मेरा blood pressure भी low रहता है।

There can be a few reasons for this blackout symptom - 1) Postural hypotension in which there is slight fluctuation in BP during posture changes 2) Anaemia 3) cervical or 4) Ear related problem. You can consult a internal medicine/MD medicine specialist to rule out these causes. The tests that can help in ruling out these problems - getting BP checked in sitting, lying down and standing, Hemoglobin and thyroid levels.

If your kidney function tests are normal than you can continue same medication. Cyst will not harm you. Need not worry.
