Diagnosing the Cause of Chest Pain!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Diagnosing the Cause of Chest Pain!

In addition to pumping blood to various organs, the heart also has its own blood supply, through which it receives its oxygen and nutrient supply. In patients with coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, there is a narrowing of the blood vessels which reduces the amount of blood flow to the target organs, including the heart.

When this happens in the heart, there is chest pain due to overexertion of the heart muscles. There could be two patterns to this chest pain. With regular exertion like exercise, there would be chest pain, and most patients are familiar with this pattern.

This is known as angina pectoris or stable angina. In some people or in some instances, chest pain occurs which is sudden and not of a predictable pattern. It could be related to extreme exertion or stress. This is known as unstable angina and can lead to heart attack and be life-threatening.

Stable angina or angina pectoris has a stable, predictable pattern which most patients get familiar with over a period of time and learn to manage. Read on to know more about the signs and symptoms and management techniques.

Signs and symptoms: Stable angina usually occurs after a round of physical exertion. The patient feels a feeling of tightness in the chest which feels like the chest being squeezed. The pain can gradually spread to the shoulder, arms and even the neck. The pain can also be induced by eating, exposure to cold, emotional stress. It lasts for about 15 minutes and is relieved by rest and sublingual nitroglycerin. The pain intensity does not change with position or coughing. In addition, the patient may also experience shortness of breath, fatigue, profuse sweating, nausea, and dizziness.
The patient may be able to detect signs on further testing including ECG, echocardiography and stress testing. Features like cardiomegaly, altered ejection fraction would be detected based on the severity of the disease.

Treatment: Immediate treatment to relieve the pain includes resting and sublingual nitroglycerin. On an ongoing basis, the treatment would include 3 approaches – lifestyle changes, medications, and surgery.

  1. Lifestyle changes: Regular exercise, smoking cessation, reduced fat intake, reduced alcohol consumption, weight loss, and stress management are some lifestyle changes to be made to improve symptoms.
  2. Medications: A number of medications would be used depending on patient’s symptoms. Aspirin to prevent clotting, medications to control blood pressure and cholesterol and diabetes.
  3. Surgery: In patients with advanced coronary artery disease, revascularization methods may be required, which includes angioplasty and coronary bypass.

In a person with known risk factors, it is advisable to have regular checkups so that the disease progression can be controlled and symptoms managed with minimal intervention.

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

Addition of L-lysine to iron supplementation resulted in a significant increase in serum ferritin concentration in some women with chronic hair loss (telogen effluvium) who failed to respond to iron supplementation alone.Other than anemia, low ferritin may also indicate hypothyroidism, vitamin C deficient Chronic intestinal bleeding in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may exceed the amount of iron that can be absorbed from the diet, resulting in a negative iron balance . So also have to check thyroid levels and take all vitamins along with iron

Shortness of Breath Treatment - साँसों की कमी और उपचार

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Shortness of Breath Treatment - साँसों की कमी और उपचार

साँसों की कमी की बिमारी को हाइपोजेमिया या हाइपोक्सिया कहते हैं. इसमें हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन की खतरनाक रूप से कमी हो जाती है. जाहिर है बिना ऑक्सीजन के हमारा ज़िंदा रहना नामुमकिन है. बिना ऑक्सीजन  के हमारे शरीर को कोई भी अंग अपना काम नहीं कर पाएगा. ऑक्सीजन हमारे लिए प्राण वायु है. यानी ये है तो हम हैं ये नहीं तो हम नहीं. हमारे शरीर के सभी कामों के लिए प्रत्यक्ष या अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से ऑक्सीजन जिम्मेदार है. हमारे शरीर के उतकों और कोशिकाओं में ऑक्सीजन रक्त के माष्यम से पहुंचता है. रक्त में मौजूद आयरन से क्रिया करके हिमोग्लोबिन सभी जरूरतमंद अंगों तक पहुंचता है. हमारे शरीर में ये प्रक्रिया लगातार चलती रहती है. जब हम सो रहे होते हैं तब भी ये प्रक्रिया चलती ही रहती है. लेकिन जब किसी कारणवश ऑक्सीजन का स्तर नीचे आ जाता है तब इसे हाइपोजेमिया या हाइपोक्सिया कहा जाता है. इसका मुख्य लक्षण है साँस लेने में तकलीफ होना.

कैसी होती है हाइपोजेमिया की जांच?
हाइपोजेमिया की जांच डॉक्टर आपके शरीर में नजर आने वाले लक्षणों के आधार पर करता है. ऑक्सीजन के स्तर रक्त की जाँच करने के लिए आपके किसी भी आर्टरी से रक्त का नमूना लिया जाता है और फिर उसमें ऑक्सीजन के स्तर की जाँच की जाती है. इसके अलावा, ऑक्सीमीटर के द्वारा भी, शरीर में ऑक्सीजन के स्तर की जाँच की जा सकती है. ये बहुत आसान प्रक्रिया है जिसमें एक छोटी सी क्लिप को आपकी ऊँगली पर लगाकर रक्त में ऑक्सीजन की मात्रा को छोटी सी स्क्रीन पर दिखाया जाता है.

हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन का सामान्य स्तर?
हमारे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन का सामान्य स्तर 95 से 100 तक होता है. लेकिन जब ये 90% से नीचे जाने लगता है तो इसे ऑक्सीजन का कम स्तर माना जाता है. ऑक्सीजन के स्तर को बना कर रखने का एक तरीका यह भी है कि अस्थमा जैसी बीमारी को नियंत्रण में रखा जाए. इस बीमारी के कारण, बहुत से हो सकते हैं, जिनमें से फेंफड़ों के रोग जैसे अस्थमा, न्यूमोनिया यानी (सी.ओ.पी.डी) की सभी बीमारियां शामिल हैं. इसके अलावा शरीर में ऑक्सीजन की कमी का सबसे प्रमुख कारण आयरन की कमी होता है. इस बीमारी के लक्षण, साँसों में तकलीफ, हृदय गति बढ़ जाना, साँसे तेज हो जाना, त्वचा का रंग नीला हो जाना, अकारण ही पसीना निकलना, मानसिक भ्रम हो जाना के रूप में सामने आते हैं.

हाइपोजेमिया के कारण
आमतौर पर तो ये किसी को भी हो सकता है लेकिन बीमारीग्रस्त इंसान को होने की संभावना ज्यादा रहती है. ये उन लोगों में ज्यादा हो सकता है जिन्हें साँसों से संबंधित अन्य परेशानी जैसे अस्थमा, निमोनिया आदि बीमारियां होती हैं. इसका कारण हमारे शरीर में होने वाली आयरन की कमी है.

हाइपोजेमिया के लक्षण

  • हृदय गति बढ़ जाना.
  • त्वचा का नीला पड़ना.
  • सीने में दर्द होना.
  • सांस लेने में तकलीफ होना.
  • साँसे तेज हो जाना.
  • बिना शारीरिक मेहनत के पसीना आना.
  • त्वचा की नमी खोना.
  •  मानसिक भ्रम.

कैसे बचा जा सकता है हाइपोजेमिया से
जैसा कि आमतौर पर कुछ सावधानियां बरतकर हम किसी भी बिमारी की संभावना को कुछ हद तक कम कर सकते हैं. ठीक उसी तरह हाइपोजेमिया से से बचने के लिए भी कुछ प्राथमिक उपाय कर सकते हैं. हलांकि इस तरह की गंभीर बीमारियों को बेहतर इलाज के द्वारा ही ठीक किया जा सकता है. फिर भी निम्लिखित सावधानियां बरतकर हम इसकी संभावना को जरुर कम कर सकते हैं.

  • रोजाना पांच से दस मिनट एक्सरसाइज जरूर करें.
  • आयरन से भरपूर भोजन करें.
  • कमरा बंद ना रखें, सबुह के समय खिड़कियां जरूर खोलें.
  • पानी पर्याप्त मात्रा में पीयें, रोज 8 से 10 गिलास पानी पीयें.
  • अपने घर में पेड़-पौधे जरूर लगायें जिससे हरियाली बनी रहे.

नोट :- यदि आपको इस तरह की कोई समस्या होती है तो प्राथमिक तौर पर आप इन्हें आजमा सकते हैं लेकिन चिकित्सकीय परामर्श आवश्यक है.

High blood pressure can be managed with diet, exercise and medication. Avoid excessive salt, fat and carbohydrates in diet. Do breathing exercises (pranayam) which will help to regulate b. P. Take homoeopathic medicines for b. P for better results.

Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in major depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having and yes you seem to have other risk factors of being unmarried and jobless. Lack of confidence and interest are further hurdels to motivate self for social interactions. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

If the total cholesterol level of a man in his 40s is above 250 mg/dL and he comes in the high risk range mentioned in the reference ranges of his lipid profile, does it mean that he will definitely have heart problems? He has been taking cholesterol lowering medicine plus living a healthy lifestyle with dirty and exercises.

If total cholesterol and LDL are high, then there is high probability of developing heart blockages, but with medications we can prevent heart attacks or worsening of blockage. The aim is to keep cholesterol levels as normal as possible. So continue medications

Dear lybrateuser, - The heart rate is controlled by the electrical activity of the heart originating from the SA node & travelling through other parts of the heart - any abnormality or disorder in the conducting system can lead to slow heart rate or sinus bradycardia - follow the advise of your doctor as after finding the cause the further management of the problem will be possible, so do not worry go ahead as advised & you will benefit from it.
