What are the symptoms of heart attack? What can I do if suddenly someone attacked by this cardiac arrest?
Dear Lybrateuser, - The symptoms of heart attack are pain, heaviness, tightening feeling in mid chest, pain can move to back, left shoulder, neck, jaw, profuse sweating, tiredness, headache, giddiness, nausea, vomiting - if there is cardiac arrest then you have to give the person CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) & try to rush the person to the nearest hospital continuing with CPR along the way.

What is blood pressure? What is high blood pressure (hypertension)? What is low blood pressure (hypotension)? How can we control on blood pressure? What is the main causes of blood pressure? Which parts mainly effected by blood pressure problem?

General Physician,

Your blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls when your heart relaxes between beats. While BP can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be less than 120/80 mm Hg (less than 120 systolic AND less than 80 diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over.Typically more attention is given to the top number (the systolic blood pressure) as a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease for people over 50 years old. In most people, systolic blood pressure rises steadily with age due to increasing stiffness of large arteries, long-term build-up of plaque, and increased incidence of cardiac and vascular disease.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest: What to Do?

Fellowship in Electrophysiology, Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology, DM - Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Sudden Cardiac Arrest: What to Do?

Cardiac arrest is reported to be the number one cause of sudden death for people over the age of 40. As it strikes fast and without prior warning, it usually leaves no time for getting help to the patient. Many lives can be saved if the necessary first aid is given immediately by people who know what to do in case of a cardiac arrest.

So first let us know about the signs of a cardiac arrest:

  1. Loss of consciousness: A person may feel dizzy, sweat, faint or collapse suddenly. You can tell if someone has just fainted and not had a cardiac arrest if they are still breathing or have a pulse.
  2. No breathing
  3. No pulse
  4. Muscle twitching.

Now that you have recognized the signs; here is what you can do:

  1. Call the ambulance and try getting an emergency medical professional to attend to the person.
  2. If professional help isn't available, emergency resuscitation measures must begin. An automated external defibrillator (AED) can rapidly determine whether the person has an abnormal heart rhythm that can be treated by an electric shock (called defibrillation). AEDs are available in many public gathering places, such as stadiums and concert halls. An AED is used before calling for help and before attempting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) because an AED is more likely to save lives. If the AED detects ventricular fibrillation, it provides an electrical shock (defibrillation) that can restore normal heart rhythm and start the heart beating again. Emergency medical care should be obtained even if the heart has started beating again. If a person remains in cardiac arrest after an AED is used, CPR should be done.
  3. If a person remains in cardiac arrest after an AED is used, other measures are begun, such as opening the airway and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
  4. CPR combines artificial respiration (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, or rescue breathing) to supply oxygen to the lungs with chest compressions, which circulate oxygen to the brain and other vital organs by forcing blood out of the heart.

To do CPR (artificial respiration), the rescuer's mouth covers the person's mouth and then rescuer slowly exhales air into the person's lungs (rescue breaths). The person's airway must remain opened during artificial respiration. To prevent air from escaping from the person's nose, the person's nose can be pinched shut as the rescuer exhales into the mouth.

Talk to your doctor to find out if you are at risk of a cardiac arrest.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Get her blood sugar done & also Doppler test for any problem in blood vessels of the limbs -she should do regular exercises like walking for 30 min a day if it is not painful, avoid sitting for too long in one place, mobility will help in better circulation in the legs -consult a doctor for proper medication.

The volatile oils in ginger have long made it a useful herbal remedy for nasal and chest congestion. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over a 1-inch piece of peeled, grated ginger; steep for 10 minutes; and strain. Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper to the water and drink as needed.

I am unable to breathe for the past 2 months. Heavy chest and no deep breathe. I smoke 6-10 cigarettes everyday. Please suggest what should I do.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Nirvic, i don't know how long you have been smoking. However yo try and stop smoking. Breathing problems are common in smokers. If yo stop smoking, there are other health benefits also in the long run. Please motivate yourself continuously for 12 weeks not to smoke. If you have withdrawal symptoms, please take the help of nicotine gum or patch, or Bupropion tablets. All the best.

Usually, the supra scapular (shoulder blade) area gets tendonitis or muscular pain due to exertion. This can cause pain in respective chest area too. Avoid exertion like push-up etc. Apply oil massage. Drink 2.5 litres liquid or water daily minimum. Proper postural correction while sitting/ sleeping may also required. Eat timely and avoid acidity food.
