Sudden Cardiac Arrest - What Should You Do?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest - What Should You Do?

A cardiac arrest can strike when a person is least expecting it. This is usually termed as a sudden cardiac arrest, which happens due to an unexpected loss of functionality of heart. Does it not make sense to know what is to be done in case one comes across a person who just had an arrest?

The most important thing is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). It is critical for the survival of a victim of heart attack. This is to ensure that there is still some level of blood flowing to the vital organs of the body, without which death would surely be a foregone conclusion.

If you have not received a CPR training, you must do it now. This is because a lot of things can get complicated and go wrong. After all, who wants to make a bad situation worse? In case of sudden cardiac arrest one should drop down and kneel, place the palm of one hand over the back of another and then go onto to perform compressions on the chest at a rate of about a 100 to a 120 beats per minute (BPM). The elbows should be straight and the heel of the hand that is lower should be placed in the centre of the victim’s chest.

  1. Call for help: If you are at the scene, but do not know how to provide a CPR, call the emergency helpline number immediately. Medical help should not be delayed so that the cardiac arrest victim can be treated by a medical professional.
  2. CPR: In order to perform CPR, after about 30 compressions, tilt the head back and lift the chin to open the airway and give two rescue breaths. This is only if there is no normal breathing. Each breath lasts a second and the chest should rise after the first. If it does not, the procedure must be repeated again.
  3. Electric shock: An automated external defibrillator (AED) is very important when treating a cardiac arrest. If there is one available at hand, a shock should be provided prior to starting CPR.

While there may be quite a lot of stuff to take in about the procedures related to a cardiac arrest, it is surely worth remembering. After all, a life may really depend on it!

I can not concentrate on my work. When ever I have something to do I am unable to focus like something is stopping me, I feel irritable and my heart beats loudly. At such times, I don't want to talk to anyone. It irritates me if people are talking to me or even in front of me. I feel completely exhausted even if I am well rested and all I am able to do is sleep again. Is there any kind of changes in my lifestyle or diet that can help?

Dear Lybrateuser, -From your symptoms it appears that you are stressed & have anxiety -some lifestyle changes will make you feel better, do not miss breakfast as it gives a boost to the metabolism & the energy to start your day & work, a low blood sugar leads to decreased concentration, irritability & lethargy, have a combination of a whole grain, like brown/multigrain bread & an egg or yogurt with fresh fruits, milk with oats/ cereals & fruits, eat meals on time, can even have a light snack in between meals like a sandwich, sprouts, a fruit, apple, wholegrain crackers, yogurt -have 7-8 glasses of water a day, good hydration keeps one alert & energized & also helps in removing toxins from the body -do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 20-30 min, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning as these calm your mind, reduce stress & help you keep fit -sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed, eat dinner at least 2-3 hrs before bedtime, a good sleep keeps you fresh the next day, do not nap for more than 30 min in the day -keep your mind busy by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby, socialize -get your blood hemogram, sugar, thyroid homone levels checked -plan your work a day earlier & keep follow timings properly so that there is no stress & mind is relaxed.

Hello lybrate-user, instead of taking strong painkiller tablets for your headache, why don't you try taking homeopathic medicine? you can take homeopathic belladonna 200, 4 pills three times a day whenever you get headache. This medicine has no side effect and will relieve you of your complaints very fast.

Hi, Welcome. First I want to know whether you have associated heart disease or diabetes. If no than you are taking very high dose. I'll recommend decreasing the dose to 5 mg once daily. If you have any heart disease, than this dose is fine. Thanks.

Dear Lybrate user: heart palpitation is the sensation that your heart has skipped a beat or added an extra beat. It may feel like your heart is racing, pounding, or fluttering. You may become overly aware of your heartbeat. This sensation is sometimes also felt in the neck, throat, or chest. While you’re experiencing palpitations, your heart rhythm may or may not be abnormal. Most heart palpitations are harmless and resolve on their own without treatment. Rarely, heart palpitations can indicate a serious condition. Seek medical attention right away if you have heart palpitations and a diagnosed heart problem or if you have palpitations that occur with other symptoms such as: dizziness lightheadedness fainting a loss of consciousness confusion difficulty breathing excessive sweating pain, pressure, or tightening in your chest pain in your arms, neck, chest, jaw, or upper back a resting pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute.

Take it as a shock treatment. 2 blockages are removed and you will lead a normal life if you are are fully careful about dos and do nots. Do not smoke or get exposed to pollution. Keep blood sugar levels and lipids levels within healthy range. Eat moderately and keep bp and weight under control. Exercise moderately according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of proteins supplements. Reduce bad fats like transfats out of your food plate. Eat good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday. Eat carbs and seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take a spoon of honey added to water every day. Drink apple cider vinegar plus a spoon of honey added to it. Drink pomegranate juice, it does bring down the blockages. Say no to negative stress, only positive fruitful stress to bring results. Help others with cardiac problems. Good luck.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy usually is inherited. It's caused by a change in some of the genes in heart muscle proteins. HCM also can develop over time because of high blood pressure or aging.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach. Consult doctor.
