A heart attack happens when your heart muscle is starved of oxygen-rich blood. Make sure you know the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and don't delay getting help. Should I take an aspirin if I think I'm having a heart attack?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
If you think that you are having a heart attack - taking an aspirin will protect you but not cure you. For cure of a heart attack and also for saving the life of someone with a heart attack - an emergency thrombolysis or angioplasty is essential. Taking an aspirin for a patient with a heart attack is protective and for a person without heart attack, it is not harmful! Hence, take an aspirin but don't become complacent by taking it!

Hello Doctor, From past few months (3 months) I am not feeling very great. I feel low in energy all the time and when I stand on my feet I feel like I have to hold onto something to be steady though I don't feel I am fainting or I will fall or lose my balance. But yes I feel like that I am disbalancing a bit. Secondly, I have this problem of heartburn and gas as well. No matter what I eat, sometimes I get severe heart burn and sometimes I am OK. Gas is constantly building whenever I eat anything. I would say that 65% after eating anything I get heartburn. Thirdly, I get palpitations and I think I have become very sensitive. Sensitive in the sense that whenever I am sleeping or resting on my bed, even a small sound or a bang or anything or even a slight banging makes me feel like my heart is pounding/dropping/ or something (dil ghabrana ek dum se). From past few days I got this pain in my chest (right side). Pain is not severe but it is disturbing and I don't feel comfortable at all. My stomach is upset all the time and some pain in bowel. I have got an ultrasound done, I can attach a copy of it if required. I feel low everything and I spend most of my time worrying about things or how to sort my life out. When I think too much these problems becomes intense and I feel really uncomfortable with all this happening. Headache is another issue, regular pain in temples of my head and itching inside my ear is also there. I have tried a lot of doctors but not happy with what they have suggested me. I would request you to consult or advice me in a best possible way please.

Yes you have been given the right injection. The dose of hcg should be 10, 000 iu. Did you travel when she was pregnant. Just give her proper rest, no sexual contact and no intercourse. After that within next 7-8 days her bleeding should stop.

What Are the Main Indicators of a Heart Disease in a Child?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

What Are the Main Indicators of a Heart Disease in a Child?

Severe hereditary heart imperfection commonly becomes obvious soon after the birth of a child or at some point in the first few months of its life. It is a tragic condition in children and some of the symptoms that are associated with the heart imperfections include rapid breathing, grunting while breathing, swelling of the abdomen, legs and areas around the eyes of the baby. 

The baby experiences shortness of breath during feeding and in this way, the baby does not gain much weight. The nostrils of the baby also become flared, and they at times turn pale blue in their skin color. In some cases, the blood pressure of the baby is also very low after their birth. 

Congenital heart defects are at times not diagnosed in the early stages of childhood as the signs are not noticeable.

However, some of the signs that are obvious and noticeable in older children mainly include

  1. Children become short of breath while exercising or doing some activity and at times these children require frequent monitoring.
  2. They get tired in no time and have less stamina
  3. The legs of these children suffering from congenital heart defects tend to swell.
  4. The blood circulation in these children is very poor 
  5. Holes in the heart occur and typically in the walls between the major blood vessels as well as the chambers.

Do Tests Regularly:
It is very important that a follow up is done with pediatrician regularly and the tests described are performed regularly. In any such case if the problem is significant, then it is likely that your medical doctor would refer your child to a paediatric cardiologist. The paediatric cardiologist is specially trained to identify as well as treat severe heart problems in young children, infants and even in young adults.
Medications Used for Treating Heart Disease:
The condition cannot be prevented and hence to lower the risk of your baby having congenital heart disease it is very necessary that women have a healthy pregnancy. There are certain medications provided by the doctors to treat this condition and relieve the symptoms caused. The medications that are used include Vasodilators to widen the blood vessels so that the blood circulation is improved, Diuretics are used to reduce the extra fluid in the body. The strength of the heart beat is increased by use of Digoxin, and irregular heartbeats can be prevented by use of Antiarrhythmics. However, these medications do not treat the defect completely.

Cardiomyopathy -  Decoding the Types + Treatment

The heart muscle is the central pumping machine that ensures that blood flow throughout the body is maintained and all other organs have a regular supply. One of the conditions that can cause this organ to malfunction is cardiomyopathy, wherein the heart is unable to pump the blood to all parts of the body. This condition can even lead to heart failure and is something that needs to be addressed and diagnosed quickly.

Symptoms of Cardiomyopathy
Early stages of cardiomyopathy may be difficult to detect externally, although it may be slowly reducing your heart’s capacity. Symptoms that start showing in later stages may include:

  1. Constant fatigue, even without physical activity
  2. Fluid may build up and thus cause bloating within the body
  3. Persistent coughing while lying down
  4. You may have irregular heartbeats that may sometimes be quite rapid
  5. Due to the lack of blood supply, you may feel lightheaded, dizzy and might even cause you to faint
  6. Even the slightest of exertions will cause breathlessness and exhaustion and you may even feel this symptom while at rest
  7. Intermittent chest pain

Causes of Cardiomyopathy
Causes of this condition may vary from patient to patient, although certain common factors include:

  1. Genetic reasons where one or both parents are susceptible to this condition
  2. Metabolic problems such as obesity, diabetes or thyroid problems
  3. Substance abuse such as anabolic steroids, amphetamines cocaine or even the consumption of excessive alcohol
  4. High blood pressure for prolonged periods
  5. Nutritional deficiencies
  6. Side effects of drug treatments such as the use of certain chemicals in chemotherapy

Types of Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy has multiple types; depending on what causes them and also certain specific symptoms. These are:

  1. Restrictive cardiomyopathy
  2. Dilated cardiomyopathy
  3. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  4. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  5. Unclassified cardiomyopathies

Treatment for cardiomyopathy
The treatment of these various forms of cardiomyopathy will vary depending on the type and also the stage and condition of the heart. Some of these treatments include:

  1. Medications
  2. Lifestyle changes
  3. Surgeries such as Septal myectomy, Septal ablation and Radiofrequency ablation
  4. Implantable devices such as Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator or ICD
  5. Ventricular assist devices
  6. Heart transplant in the worst case scenarios

I have fatty tummy I tried many thing like dieting, exercise gym but not perfectly result I get in lose cholesterol so tell me things to reduce my weight please.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Mr. Lybrate-user, bp reading is systolic 100 - 140 / diastolic 60 to 90 mm hg. This is normal range. But systolic (upper) 120 to 130 and diastolic (lower) 70 to 80 mm hg is generally considered normal range. I am not able to understand the sentence" bp remains 100 - 160 (if medicine not taken)" are you saying it 160 / 100 mm hg because higher number is above and lower nuber is below. Please clarify.
