हार्ट ब्लॉकेज के लक्षण - Heart Blockage Ke Lakshan!
हार्ट ब्लॉकेज और हार्ट अटैक दोनों लगभग एक से ही हैं. इनके होने का प्रमुख कारण हमारी नई जीवन शैली है. आज की बदलती हुई जीवन शैली के कारण कई बीमारियाँ हमें सौगात में मिलने लगीं हैं. जैसे मधुमेह, बीपी आदि जैसी बीमारियों का तेजी से प्रसार बेहद आम हो चला है. वहीं हार्ट अटैक के मामले भी कम नहीं हैं. लेकिन यदि हार्ट अटैक के लक्षण पहले ही पता चल जाएं, तो कई लोगों की जान बचाई जा सकती है. यदि स्वास्थ्य को लेकर सतर्क रहें, जागरूक रहें तो कोई भी बीमारी शुरुआत में ही पकड़ी जा सकती है, जिससे कई गंभीर परिणामों से बचा जा सकेगा, वहीं उचित उपचार से उसे पूरी तरह सही भी किया जा सकेगा. उनके मुताबिक हार्ट अटैक भले ही एक दम से होने वाली शारीरिक घटना है, जिसके कारण व्यक्ति की जान जा सकती है. लेकिन आपको बता दें कि हार्ट अटैक एक दम से आता जरूर है, लेकिन इसके लक्षण महीने भर पहले से ही पहचाने जा सकते हैं. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम हार्ट ब्लॉकेज के लक्षणों को विस्तारपूर्वक समझें ताकि इसे समय पर पहचान कर चिकित्सक से संपर्क कर सकें.

सांस लेने में परेशानी होना-
यदि आपको सांस से संबंधित कोई बीमारी नहीं है. लेकिन कुछ दिनों से आप महसूस कर रहे हैं कि सांस लेने में दिक्कत हो रही है. जब दिल अपना काम सही तरीके से नहीं करता है, तो फेफड़ों तक ऑक्सीजन पहुंचना मुश्किल होने लगता है. यही कारण है कि आपको सांस लेने में दिक्कत होनी शुरू हो जाती है. अगर आपको ऐसा कुछ भी परिवर्तन महसूस हो रहा है, तो तुरंत कॉर्डियोलॉजिस्ट से संपर्क कर अपनी समस्या का कारण पूछ लें, ताकि हार्ट अटैक जैसी जानलेवा स्थिति से बचा जा सके.

चक्कर आना-
आपका दिल कमजोर होने लगता है. नतीजा रक्त संचार प्रभावित होता है. जिससे दिमाग को आवश्यकतानुसार ऑक्सीजन नहीं मिल पाती. इसका परिणाम चक्कर आने की स्थिति पैदा करता है. सिर हल्का महसूस होने जैसी समस्याएं होने लगती हैं.

बिना मेहनत किए थकान-
हार्ट अटैक आने से करीब 20-25 दिन पहले से ही शारीरिक थकान महसूस होने लगती है. बिना किसी मेहनत का काम किए थकान होना शुरू हो जाती है. इसका सीधा सा अर्थ है कि हार्ट अटैक दस्तक दे रहा है. दरअसल हृदय की धमनियां कोलेस्ट्रॉल के कारण बंद हो जाती हैं या फिर सिकुड़ जाती हैं, जिससे दिल को अपने कार्य करने में काफी मेहनत करनी होती है. नतीजा थकान के रूप में हमारे शरीर पर हावी होने लगता है. इस स्थि ति में अक्सर रात को अच्छी गहरी नींद सोने के बावजूद सुबह उठने पर फ्रेशनेस का अहसास नहीं होता. आपको लगातार आलस और थकान महसूस होती रहती है.

पैरों या शरीर के अन्य हिस्सों में सूजन-
जब दिल को शरीर के सभी अंगों में रक्त पहुंचाने के लिए ज्यादा मेहनत करनी पड़ती है, तब शरीर में मौजूद शिराएं फूल जाती हैं. उनमें सूजन आने की आशंका बढ़ जाती है. खासतौर पर पैर के पंजों में या फिर टखनों पर सूजन जल्दी नजर आ जाती है. वहीं यह सूजन शरीर के किसी भी हिस्से को प्रभावित करती है. कभी-कभी होंठों पर नीलापन आने लगता है.

हमेशा सर्दी बने रहना-
अगर आपको लंबे समय से सर्दी-जुकाम या इससे संबंधित लक्षण नजर आए तो यह भी हार्ट अटैक का ही एक लक्षण है. जब दिल, शरीर के आंतरिक अंगों में रक्त संचार के लिए ज्यादा मेहनत करता है, तब फेफड़ों में रक्त की संभावना बढ़ जाती है. यदि कफ के साथ सफेद या गुलाबी रंग का बलगम निकलता है, तो इसका कारण फेफड़ों में रक्त स्रावित होना हो सकता है.

हार्ट अटैक के लिए जिम्मेदार लक्षणों में एक लक्षण है सीने में असहजता महसूस करना. असहजता का अर्थ है सीने में जलन होना या फिर कुछ दबाव सा महसूस करना. यही नहीं कुछ अन्य परिवर्तन महसूस हो सकते हैं. यदि आपको ऐसा कुछ भी परिवर्तन महसूस हो तो तुरंत कार्डियोलॉजिस्ट की सलाह लें.

Anabolic Steroid Use And Health Risks!
I recently came across a good study highlighting the comparison of men abusing anabolic steroids in sports. The results were shocking.

1. As compared to normal male, anabolic steroid abusers had a three times higher chance of death over the same period of time.
2. Infertility was twice as common among the abusers as compared to normal men.
3. The risk of erectile dysfunction was three times higher.
4. The risk of heart disease was three times and risk of stroke and heart attack was 5 times.
5. The risk of acne and gynecomastia was 13 times.

So my sincere request to all the bodybuilders, physique athletes, both aspiring and professionals, don't screw up your future for an aesthetic present.

A brain stroke can affect anyone at any point of time when the supply of blood to the brain is interrupted. It can threaten major physical functions and can prove to be fatally dangerous at times. The brain stem which is placed right above the spinal cord controls the breathing, heartbeat and levels of blood pressure. It is also in charge of controlling some elementary functions such as swallowing, hearing, speech and eye movements.

If he has a stent better to take regularly. If he doesn't have a stent, take for few months after a heart attack, if no previous attack, he doesn't require it, so better to collect more information on risks and benefits.

Brain Stroke - What Are The Forms Of It?
A stroke, also called cerebrovascular accident (CVA), cerebrovascular insult(CVI), or brain attack, occurs when a part of the brain is deprived of blood flow. When the brain cells are deprived of oxygen they begin to die. When brain cells die, the functions controlled by that part of the brain also stops, which results in different types of disabilities among stroke survivors.

There are two types of strokes

Hemorrhagic
Ischemic stroke
The first is caused when a brain aneurysm or a weak blood vessel bursts. Most of the time, this type of stroke leads to death. The second one happens when a clot blocks the flow of blood to the brain. Patients suffering from stroke suffer from various side-effects, the most common ones being paralysis or loss of feeling in a certain part of the body, problem in understanding or talking and loss of vision in one side. The side-effects start showing up regularly after a person has had a stroke.

In certain conditions, blood flow to a certain part of the brain stops for only some time and hence the body suffers stroke like symptoms which only last a couple of hours before disappearing. This is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Unfortunately, the effects of a stroke can be debilitating and also permanent. Hence its important to know the symptoms of a stroke and rush the patient to a doctor as soon as possible. Sometimes early treatment can save a lot of damage.

The primary symptoms of stroke are as follows:

Confusion and problems with talking and comprehension
Headache along with alteration of consciousness or vomiting
Numbness of the face, arms or legs, especially on one side of the body
Issue with seeing, in one or both eyes
Inability to walk with stability, including disrupted coordination
Problems with the bladder and bowel control
Acute depression
Body temperature fluctuates, and pain worsens with movement
Paralysis on one side of the body along with fatigue
Problem in expressing or controlling emotions
Risk Factors:

Hypertension
Diabetes
Increased Cholesterol
Smoking
Obesity
Sedentary Lifestyle
Diagnosis of stroke

Several tests are carried out to determine the type of stroke acquired. They are:

Physical examination, which involves observing the patient's overall condition.
Blood tests
CT scans
MRI scans
Cerebral angiogram
Echocardiograms
Stroke is a fatal brain disease and can cause permanent damage to your system so its best to check with your doctor to know how you can prevent it.

Brain Stroke - Must Know Facts About It!

Brain Stroke - Must Know Facts About It!
A brain stroke can affect anyone at any point of time when the supply of blood to the brain is interrupted. It can threaten major physical functions and can prove to be fatally dangerous at times. The brain stem which is placed right above the spinal cord controls the breathing, heartbeat and levels of blood pressure. It is also in charge of controlling some elementary functions such as swallowing, hearing, speech and eye movements

What are the different types of strokes?
There are three main kinds of stroke: ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes and transient ischemic attacks. The The most common type of brain stroke is the ischemic stroke is caused by narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, which prevents the proper supplyof of blood to the brain. Sometimes it so happens that the blood clot that has formed elsewhere in the body have travelled via the blood vessels and has been trapped in the blood vessel which provides blood to the brain. When the supply of blood to a part of the brain is hindered, the tissue in that area dies off owing to lack of oxygen. The other variant of brain stroke is termed as hemorrhagic stroke is caused when the blood vessels in and around the brain burstor or leak. Strokes need to be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible in order to minimize brain damage.

What are the common symptoms of a brain stroke?
The symptoms of the brain stroke are largely dependent on the area of the brain that has been affected. It can interfere with normal functioning, such as breathing and talking and other functions which human beings can perform without thinking such as eye movements or swallowing. Since all the signals from the brain as well as other parts of the body traverse through the brain stem, the interruption of blood flow often leads to numbness or paralysis in different parts of the body.

Who is likely to have a stroke?
Anyone is at a risk of developing brain stroke although ageing is directly proportional to the risk of having a stroke. Not only that an individual with a family history of brain stroke or transient ischemic attack is at a higher risk of developing stroke. People who have aged over 65 accounts for about 33 percent of all brain strokes. It is important to point here that individuals with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, cholesterol, cancer, autoimmune diseases and some blood disorders are at a higher risk of developing brain stroke.

There are a few factors which can increase the risk of developing stroke beyond any control. But there are certain lifestyle choices as well which aids in controlling the chances of being affected by stroke. It is crucial to refrain from long-term hormone replacement therapies as well as birth control pills, smoking, lack of physical activity, excessive use of alcohol and drug addiction. A brain stroke is a life-threatening medical condition, and when an individual has symptoms that resemble that of stroke, it is crucial to seek immediate medical help.



Treatment for stroke:

Treatment depends on the type of stroke.
Ischemic strokes can be treated with 'clot-busting' drugs.
Hemorrhagic strokes can be treated with surgery to repair or block blood vessel weaknesses.
The most effective way to prevent strokes is through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
What is TPA?
TPA is a thrombolytic or a Clot Buster drug. This clot buster is used to break-up the clot that is causing a blockage or disruption in the flow of blood to the brain and helps restore the blood flow to the area of the brain. It is given by intravenous (IV). This can be given only within 45.5 hrs of the onset of symptoms

Time is brain

Remember Every second Loss means brain cells die.

Rush to the nearest Stroke Centre whenever you experience such symptoms.

You can save the brain cells dying if you reach within 45.5 hrs by the CLOT BUSTER.

Endovascular procedures:
Another treatment option is an endovascular procedure called mechanical thrombectomy, strongly recommended, in whichtrained trained doctors try removing a large blood clot bysending sending a wired-caged device called a stentretriever, to the site of the blocked blood vessel in the brain

Stroke prevention:
The good news is that 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. It startswith with managing keyrisk risk factors, including

High blood pressure,
Cigarette smoking,
Diabetes Atrial fibrillation and
Physical inactivity.
More than half of all strokes are caused by uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure, making it the most important risk factor to control.

Rehabilitation:
The best way to get better after a stroke is to start stroke rehabilitation ("rehab"). In stroke rehab, a team of health professionals works with you to regain skills you lost as the result of a stroke.
