With warfarin you have to monitor pt inr to adjust the dose. With evarox no need of monitoring, it is newer medicine introduced in india and is better and safer choice for patients like you. Ivc filter is a filter like device they will put in inferior vena cava (main blood vessel carrying blood from lower limbs and lower part of body) to prevent any clot from your deep veins, reaching lungs (pulmonary embolism, causing acute emergency. It is invasive procedure carried out by a cardiologist.

Things To Know About EECP!

Hello,

Mein Dr. S.K. Tyagi. EECP ke bare mein kuch tathya, facts main public ko batana chahunga. Pahli cheez ye external therapy hai, ismein koi cut, wiring, injection, glucose, operation wagaira kuchh nahin hota hai, pressure based mechanism hai, US FDA approved method hai, aur iske jo benefits hai ke bina operation, bina dard ham apna goal achieve kar sakte hain. Number two jo small vessels hain, jo branches hain, jo badi arteries hai, god ne arteries 3 badi main arteries hai unki ko branches hai, unki disease ko ballooning, stenting ya bypass surgery take care nahin kar sakti hain.

To ye EECP therapy small vessel disease ke liye bhi important hai. Hamen proper results angioplasty ya bypass se nahi mil paate hai kyunki distal branches jo small vessels hain unme bhi problem hoti hai, to desired results nahin milte isliye kuch patients ko CABG operation ke baad bhi angina rehta hai ya stent ke baad bhi angina rehta hai ya koi complications ajaati hai after surgery or angioplasty. Uska main reason small vessel disease hai jisko EECP control karti hai small vessels ko bhi dilate karke collateral vessels develop karti hai.

Dusra EECP therapy un patients main bhi ki ja sakti hai jo high risk cases hai, jinki heart ka ejection fraction ya pumping power bohot kam hai, jinko operation mein bohot risk hai, unko heart transplant ki bhi salah di jaati hai. Jo cases iske layak nahi hai ki wo kara paye kyunki high risk hai, apni life khona nahi chahte hain unke liye bhi ham EECP aaram se successfully kar paa rahe hain kyunki iski koi complications nahi hai. To iska main purpose small vessel disease, new vessel formation aur un patients ko laabh dena hai jinka ham operation nahi kar paate hain high risk ki vajah se ya patient nahi karana chahta dar ki vajah se ya high risk wo nahi lena chahta unke liye bohot hi kargar therapy ha.

Thank you

Blood Clots In The Legs - Know Ways To Prevent It!

Blood Clots In The Legs - Know Ways To Prevent It!
A blood clot in the leg is termed as Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT. This blood clot can be fatal because it usually blocks the passage of blood to the heart by damaging the one way valves of the veins. This can also reach other organs like the lungs in which situation the case becomes complicated and may also lead to death.

There are various ways of preventing the onset of these clots. Follow these points to know more.


* Blood Thinners: Prolonged hospital stay and a major surgery like joint replacement can lead to blood clots in the legs or DVT. Therefore, it is imperative to ask your doctor about a prescription for blood thinners which can help in better blood flow despite minimal motion in the legs or stiffness.


* Compressions Stockings: If you have been in the hospital for a prolonged period or suffering from leg paralysis, then the risk of blood clots is greater than most others. You can make use of compression stockings which will help in preventing clots by holding the area tight so that the blood is forced to pump and flow. These should be used every time you are admitted to the hospital.


* Exercise: It is important to keep moving in case you are travelling in a long flight that is over four hours long. Also, you can try certain mild exercises in case you have a long standing condition of pain or cramping in the leg muscles and joints. From simple toe flexes to muscle strengthening exercises like the heel or towel hook, you can ensure that the tightening action makes your muscle firm so that the blood clots do not have a chance to form. You may also need to lose weight in case you are overweight so that you can alleviate the risk of these clots.


* Water: Staying hydrated is something that we all need to follow in any case, but it is especially important if you are risk of developing blood clots in the legs. Drinking plenty of fluids is a natural way of thinning the blood, especially if you have been in bed or travelling for prolonged periods.


* Loose Fitting Clothing: You may want to wear loose fitting clothing when you are travelling or in the hospital so that you do not end up unnecessarily compressing an area in a way that will be detrimental for the blood flow there. Wearing loose clothing ensures that the blood flow carries on as per its normal routine without any blockages.


It is important to remember the above points so that you keep blood clots in the legs at bay.

Blood Clots - How To Avert Them?

Blood Clots - How To Avert Them?
Blood clots can be alarming, more so during pregnancy. The seriousness is much more because of the baby growing inside you. However, the good part is that this condition is considered rare.
However, one can take steps to minimize the risks of this condition during pregnancy.

What is a blood clot?
Blood clots develop when the platelets obstruct blood flow. Normally, this happens after any injury or a cut, in order to prevent continuous bleeding. During pregnancy, blood clots act as a safeguard against losing excessive blood at the time of labor. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is however, a serious condition wherein a blood clot forms within the leg s deep veins or the pelvic area. DVT is linked to Pulmonary Embolism, a condition wherein a blood clot ruptures and travels all the way to the lungs blood vessels.

Bear in mind that statistically, a blood clot may affect one or two out of every 1000 women. So there should be no real alarm unless you realize that you could be at risk. The risks of this condition are at their highest, either during the initial six weeks, post-childbirth or the first 3-4 months post pregnancy.

The risk factors are:

Family history of DVT
Smoking or having been exposed to passive smoke
Age- especially above the age of 35
Being overweight or obese
Sedentary lifestyle devoid of any exercise
Childbirth via a C-section
Common symptoms:
Although rare, some of the common symptoms include:

Pain or swelling in the affected leg
Pelvic pain
Pain that deteriorates while walking/moving around
Abnormally large veins
Possible complications:
Placental abruption or blood clots in the placenta

Stroke
Heart attack
Miscarriage
Pulmonary Embolism
Treatment and prevention
Adopting a healthier way of life by following a proper diet and exercising regularly is the basic preventive measure you can take. Discuss the type of exercises you can do with the healthcare provider. Exercising regularly ensures better circulation, thus averting the formation of blood clots. Now is as good a time as ever when it comes to quitting tobacco. An anticoagulant will be administered that prevents blood clotting.

* Supportive care

- oxygen therapy

- maintaining hypotention

* Anticoagulation therapy

- heparin

- warfarin

* Thrombolytic therapy

- streptokinase or tPA to hasten the lysis of pulmonary embolus or emboli

* Inferior vena cava interruption (if thrombolytic and anticoagulant therapies are contraindicated or if the patient continues to have recurrent pulmonary embolism despite these therapies, vena caval interruption is indicated by the transvenous placement of Greenfield filter in the inferior vena cava just below the renal veins)

* Pain relief

* Anticoagulant medications



HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT-

* THROMBOSIS, lower limbs - Apis mel

* Edema of Foot - Apis., Ars., aur-m., aur., Chel., dig., Kali-c., kali-i., lach., Lyc
