Our survival is solely reliant on the working of the heart. It is this that makes the prospect of a heart failure so fatal and so terrifying. Notwithstanding what the heart evokes, a heart failure is not indicative of a defunct heart; but only a situation when the heart pumps weaker than what is generally deemed as natural. Consequently, the blood flows at a slower rate to the heart and the body that in turn increases pressure in the heart. The oxygen that is produced by the heart in such a scenario is scanty and insufficient for the body.
body responds with its own defense mechanism, as the heart, in an attempt to hold more blood, stretches its chambers. Though this strenuous effort may keep the blood moving, it would gradually and inevitably weary the heart with all the effort. Subsequently, the kidney responds by retaining more salt and fluid in the body. These fluids may accumulate in different parts of the body, mainly in the legs, feet, ankles leading to congestion in the body. This very condition in medical terminology is referred to as congestive heart failure.
Different causes can contribute to the onset of such a fatal condition. Some of them are
- Coronary artery disease: In such a condition, the arteries supply insufficient amount of oxygen and blood to the heart. Subsequently, the heart receives scanty amount of nutrients and oxygen.
- Heart attack: The sudden, unanticipated blockage of the coronary artery and the ensuing stoppage of the flow of the blood lead to a heart attack. The heart muscles are damaged in such a case and prevent the proper functioning.
- Diseases: Though the term may be generic and over expansive, most of the ailments which people suffer from tend to manifest themselves by posing a potential threat to the functioning of the heart. A high blood pressure, kidney disease, even a thyroid disease can cause congestive heart failure.
Every disorder is preceded by certain symptoms, and congestive heart failure is no different. Some of them are
- Fatigue: This is one of the most perceptible symptoms of congestive heart failure. One of the earliest premonitions of an impending heart failure is a nagging sense of weariness and lethargy.
- Swelling: As the condition is characterized by accumulation and build-up of fluids in various part of the body, swelling is an inevitable symptom of this condition and a clear indication of the ailment.
A heart attack and Cardiac Arrest may sound like terms that have the same medical meaning. They are not. While a heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, a cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops to beat. You might want to know the causes behind the conditions and the symptoms and signs that one may experience. Read on to know about them.
What is a heart attack and what is a cardiac arrest?
When the flow of blood towards the heart gets blocked, a heart attack occurs. This may be due to a clot in the arteries or plaque buildup on the walls of the arteries. A sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the affected individual's heart malfunctions as well as it stops to beat all of a sudden.
Thus, it is evident that heart attack is actually a circulation problem whereas cardiac arrest is an electrical problem. During a heart attack, blood rich in oxygen is not allowed to reach a particular part of the heart because of a blocked artery. If quick treatment is not done for reopening the blocked artery, then that specific section of the heart which receives nourishment from that artery tends to die.
In cardiac arrest, as the heart stops beating unexpectedly, so organs like brain, lungs, etc. also stop receiving blood. It results in a sudden fall in blood pressure as well as the circulatory system tends to collapse. Usually, the affected individual loses consciousness because the flow of blood to the brain decreases. Death might follow if emergency treatment is not carried out immediately.
Quite like the conditions are different, the symptoms are also different. Here are some of the most common symptoms of both heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest. It will assist you in understanding that both these health issues are different.
Symptoms of a heart attack:
Pressure or pain in abdomen or chest, trouble breathing, sweating, dizziness, chest tightening feeling, pain that spreads to arm or jaw, losing unconsciousness, heart palpitation, etc. are some of the basic signs. According to studies, nearly one-thirds of the heart attack patients do not undergo chest pain during heart attacks.
Particularly women experience atypical symptoms other than the ones that are mentioned above. Few of them include gastric pain, vomiting, nausea, breathing problem without any chest pain, getting unconscious, etc.
Symptoms of Cardiac Arrest:
Collapse, dizziness, trouble in breathing, chest pain, blue discoloration of face, etc. are the most common sudden cardiac arrest's signs. A huge number of people who experience cardiac arrest do not experience any symptoms at all.
Though both heart attack and cardiac arrest are linked to each other some way or the other, yet they are different. However, both the conditions need immediate medical assistance, an absence of which may prove fatal.

The general perception and prejudices of an ‘asexual’ old age, of sex in older people being disgusting, or simply funny. Research suggests, that many older people enjoy an active sex life although they may face several problems. If doctors do not accept that older people may enjoy sex, then it is unlikely that sexual problems will be effectively explored, diagnosed and treated. This article aims to dispel the myth of a totally ‘asexual’ old age
Available research suggests that increasing age is associated with a decreased interest in sex. A survey showed that older respondents had less interest in sex, with 98% of 50–59 year olds giving it at least ‘some importance’ compared with 72% of 70–80 year olds. It is interesting, however, that the centenarians did report greater satisfaction with life and family relationships than the younger age groups. A large study using face-to-face interviews showed 59% of 75–85 year olds still attributed some importance to sex.
In general, the responses showed that those aged >70 placed less importance on sex than the younger participants.There are also gender differences, with the greatest difference being in the older age groups 41.2% of males aged 75–85 stated an interest in sex compared with 11.4% of females the same age, the men nearly always initiated the sexual interactions rather than the women. interest in sex among older men has increased over the last 10 years possibly due to the effective and well-publicised drugs for erectile dysfunction (ED) starting with Viagra in 1998.
Looking at sexual function across four domains (desire, erection, orgasm and ejaculatory functions) and found a decrease in all with increasing age. However, even among the oldest men (aged 70–80), 46% reported orgasm at least monthly.
What causes the decrease in sexual interest and function in older adults?
- General physical health
- Psychological causes
- Male sexual dysfunction
- Female sexual dysfunction
- Practical problems such as loss of partner
- Delay in seeking help from Sexologist due to embarrassment
Educating old age patients is an important task. This includes educating about ‘lifestyle factors’ (e.g. smoking, obesity, diabetic control) which can affect sexual functioning—using the concept of remaining sexually active life years may assist patients in making healthier choices. Patients should also be educated about the changes they can expect in sexual functioning as they age, and the options available to help them. Sexologist also need to be educated to increase awareness of sexuality in older age and improve communication skills. A multidisciplinary approach when possible should be used.
Finally words are that senior citizens are also sexual and not asexual due to the above problems and aging factors there is a decline in interest which is natural however minimal interest is definitely there and sexologist can educate and treat any dysfunction that they might be having unless it’s due to another disorder like cancer, or enlarged prostrate, high diabetes, etc.
