An Effective Guide To Bradycardia!

MBBS, MD (Gen. Medicine), DM (Cardiology)
Cardiologist, Delhi
An Effective Guide To Bradycardia!

Bradycardia is a condition which in basic terms means slow beating of the heart. In most cases, the typical rate is 60 to 100 beats in a minute when the person is at rest. In case your heart beats less than 60 times in a minute, then it is slower than normal. But a slow heart rate is not always a health concern even though sometimes it could indicate issues with of the heart.

What could bradycardia mean?
Some people with slow heart rate or bradycardia tend to be very fit, and they have no underlying health issues. Athletes and healthy young adults often have a heart rate lower than 60. But in others, bradycardia indicates that the natural pacemaker of the heart is not working well, or the electrical pathways have been disrupted. In severe forms of the problem, the heart may beat so slowly that it fails to pump adequate blood for meeting the needs of the body. This may show some symptoms and could be fatally dangerous.

What are the causes of bradycardia?
There are various causes of bradycardia, and some of them include:

  1. Alterations in the heart which results from aging
  2. Health conditions that slow down the electrical impulse through the heart. This may include electrolyte imbalance, low thyroid levels, and others.
  3. Diseases which may disrupt the electrical system of the heart including heart attack, coronary artery disease, and myocarditis.
  4. Certain medications that are used for treating heart problems like high blood pressure or hypertension, arrhythmia, and beta-blockers, and digoxin.

What are the symptoms of bradycardia?
When a person has very slow heart rate, he or she may experience lightheadedness or dizziness, feeling short of breath, having difficulties in doing normal activities or exercising, having chest pain, feeling tired and fatigued. In some cases, it is seen that the person may have palpitations, feeling confused, trouble in concentrating and fainting.

What’s worse, some people don’t have any symptoms at all, or their symptoms are so negligible that they think they are caused just because of aging. The best way to understand whether you have this problem is to take the pulse, and in case, it is slow or uneven, you must talk to a doctor.

How is bradycardia diagnosed and treated?
Bradycardia tends to come and go from time to time, and therefore, a standard EKG is not always able to detect it. A standard ambulatory electrocardiogram is used for detecting the condition, and sometimes, blood tests are also necessary.

The treatment of bradycardia is entirely dependent on the cause of the problem and its symptoms. It is worthy of mention here that in case the problem is not causing any symptoms, then they would not be treated under usual circumstances.

The toxins in cigarette smoke thickens your blood, triggers plaque buildup, makes it harder for your blood to carry oxygen and increases risk of blood cloting. Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in your red blood cells, decreasing your energy.

Statins should be stopped when one is planning a pregnancy. Alrhough the risks are low, yet Statins belong to x category drug as per safety. Since the patiemt is young and if conceiving was relatively easy you can think of discontinuing this pregnancy and planning more carefully next time. But the decision making is entirely yours.

Home Remedies For Bad Breath in Hindi - सांसों की दुर्गन्ध के इलाज के घरेलू नुस् खे

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Home Remedies For Bad Breath in Hindi - सांसों की दुर्गन्ध  के इलाज के घरेलू नुस् खे

क्या आप सांसों की बदबू से पीड़ित हैं? बुरा सांस, जिसे हलिटोसिस भी कहा जाता है, शर्मनाक है और आपके आत्मविश्वास के स्तर को गिरा सकता है। बुरा सांस का मुख्य कारण वे जीवाणु हैं जो आपकी जीभ के पीछे या दांतों के बीच बढ़ते हैं। हालांकि, खराब श्वास के कई अन्य कारण होते हैं जैसे कि दाँत कैविटी, मसूढ़े की बीमारी, खराब मौखिक स्वच्छता, लेपित जीभ, धूम्रपान, शुष्क मुंह आदि। पीड़ादायक गला या साइनसाइटिस जैसे संक्रमण, या आंत्र विकार, जैसे कि हृद्दाह, अल्सर, और लैक्टोज असहिष्णुता, भी बुरा सांस पैदा कर सकता है।
कई लोगों के लिए, टकसाल टॉफ़ी या गम का एक टुकड़ा चबाना, एक तीव्र उपाय है, क्योंकि यह समस्या को छुपा देता है। लेकिन बुरा सांस को नियंत्रित करने के लिए अच्छा मौखिक स्वास्थ्य बनाए रखना आवश्यक है। 
 

सांसों की दुर्गन्ध के इलाज के घरेलू नुस्खे
खराब सांस के लिए घरेलू उपचार समय के साथ आपके मौखिक स्वच्छता में बड़ा अंतर कर सकते हैं। खराब सांस के लिए कुछ घरेलू उपाय यहां दिए गए हैं:
1. सौंफ:
सौंफ़ एक उत्कृष्ट मुंह के फ्रेशनर के रूप में कार्य करता है और खराब सांस को नियंत्रित करने में मदद करता है। इसमें रोगाणुरोधी गुण भी होते हैं जो मुंह में बैक्टीरिया से लड़ते हैं। अपने श्वास को ताज़ा करने और लार के उत्पादन को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए धीरे-धीरे सौंफ चबाएँ। आप सौंफ की चाय भी पी सकते हैं।
2. दालचीनी:
दालचीनी में सीनामिक एल्डिहाइड होता है, एक आवश्यक तेल जो न केवल बुरा सांस को कवर करता है बल्कि आपके मुंह में बैक्टीरिया की मात्रा भी कम करता है। एक कप पानी में दालचीनी पाउडर के एक चम्मच को उबाल लें। समाधान को दबाएं और इसे अपने सांस को ताज़ा करने के लिए मुंह के कुल्ला के रूप में उपयोग करें। 
3. मेथी:
मेथी की चाय बेहद प्रभावी होती है जब श्वसन संक्रमण के कारण बुरा सांस होता है। 
4. लौंग:
बस अपने मुंह में कुछ लौंग को दबाएं और उन्हें अपने सांस को ताज़ा करने के लिए अच्छी तरह चबाएं। लौंग में जीवाणुरोधी गुण होते हैं जो खराब सांस से छुटकारा पाने में बहुत सहायक होते हैं। आप लौंग वाली चाय भी पी सकते हैं।
5. अजमोद:
अजमोद न केवल पाचन आसान बनाता है, बल्कि यह मुंह से दुर्गंध के लिए एक अच्छा घरेलु उपचार भी है। अजमोद में क्लोरोफिल होता है जो कि खराब सांस को बेअसर करने में मदद कर सकता है। ताजी पत्तियों को सीधे चबाएं या उन्हें अपने भोजन पर एक गार्निश के रूप में जोड़ें। 
6. नींबू का रस:
नींबू में अम्लीय सामग्री आपके मुंह में बैक्टीरिया का विकास रोकती है। बस एक कप पानी में नींबू के रस का एक बड़ा चमचा मिलाएं और इसके साथ कुल्ला करें। आप इसमे थोड़ा सा नमक जोड़ कर भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं। 
वैकल्पिक रूप से, आप पेस्ट बनाने के लिए 1 चम्मच नींबू का रस और 1-2 बड़े चम्मच सादा दही मिश्रण कर सकते हैं। अपने दांतों पर मिश्रण को लागू करें, इसे लगभग 5 मिनट तक छोड़ दें और फिर कुल्ला करें।
7. सेब का सिरका:
पीएच संतुलन प्रभाव के कारण, सेब का सिरका खराब सांस के लिए एक अद्भुत उपाय है। सेब के सिरके के 1-2 बड़े चम्मच और ठंडे पानी का गिलास मिलाएं, और इसे एक माउथवॉश के रूप में प्रयोग करें। 
आप एक गिलास पानी में कच्चे सेब के सिरके का एक बड़ा चमचा मिलाकर अपने भोजन खाने से पहले भी पी सकते हैं।
8. बेकिंग सोडा:
बेकिंग सोडा एक प्राकृतिक एंटैसिड है। यह मुंह में पीएच स्तर को संतुलित करता है और जीवाणुओं से लड़ता है। एक चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा और आधा चम्मच नींबू का रस मिलाएं, और अपने दांतों पर इस पेस्ट को रगड़ें। इसे एक मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें और फिर अपने मुंह को स्वच्छ पानी से धो लें।
9. चाय के पेड़ का तेल:
चाय के पेड़ के तेल में एंटीसेप्टिक गुण हैं और आपके मुंह के लिए एक शक्तिशाली निस्संक्रामक के रूप में कार्य करता है। गुनगुने पानी के एक गिलास में एक या दो बूंद चाय के पेड़ का तेल जोड़ें और इससे कुल्ला कर लें।

If you are facing tiredness and chest pain then you should get yourself reevaluated for your cardiac health status as soon as possible get an ECG and 2D echo cardiography done to check your heart function and development of any new changes then you can discuss the same with your cardiologist for any need for change of treatment medications Without having the complete detailed history of your case. It would be wrong for anyone to change your medications. But yes. I can educate you In general every patient who has a significant blockage in the heart or has a history of heart attack should be porn at least 4 types of medications 1) antiplatelets which increase the clotting time of blood and decrease chances of future heart attacks and Re-stenosis of the stent Both Prax and ecosprin are antiplatelets. Initially you are kept on two types of antiplatelets and depending upon your disease and your progress your then shifted to single antiplatelet after 6 months or 1 year. 2) Statins - are cholesterol lowering medications which are supposed to again prevent future heart attacks. Tonact is a statin 3) ARB / ACE Inhibitors - which help decreasing pressure on the heart and prevents remodeling injuries. Eg. Cardace / telma 4) Beta Blockers - They decrease the heart rate thereby reducing the work load on the heart. Eg. Atenolol / Betaloc. Usually all post angioplasty patients are kept on at least these 4 types of medications and depending upon the side effects and contraindications of medications are changed and slowly over period of time the dosage of these medications are decreased depending upon the recovery.

I guess you are suffering from pericardial effusion as per your description. If its mild then it can be managed with analgesic or antiinflamatory medicine. If its large amount then you need to show to a cardiologist who can draw the fluid and also do tests to find out the cause and advise you the treatment. Thank you.

For your chest pain -- if possible do a fresh stress test and if it is negative than we can rule out the cardiac cause for your chest pain.

Heart Transplant - When Is It That You Have To Go For It?

MCH DNB (CTVS), Advanced fellowship, MS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Heart Transplant - When Is It That You Have To Go For It?

There are many people worldwide who suffer from heart problems (irrespective of their age and sex). While in most cases, the condition improves with proper treatment and medications, in few, the condition is beyond treatment. A heart transplant comes as a savior for such people. It gives them a new lease of life. The transplant involves replacing a heart that has stopped functioning normally (damaged or may be diseased) with a healthy heart (from the donor).

Over the years, heart transplant has undergone a sea of change. With the advancement of science and technology, the success rate in a heart transplant has seen an exponential rise.

People who need a heart transplant:
A heart transplant may be essential in the following cases.

  • A congenital heart disorder (a person born with a heart problem).
  • Defective or diseased heart valves.
  • Amyloidosis (a condition where amyloid fibrils get deposed in the tissues and organs of the body intracellularly or extracellularly).
  • Problems in the coronary artery.
  • Cardiomyopathy (A condition where the muscles of the heart become weak, thereby affecting the normal functioning of the heart).
  • A heart transplant that failed previously.
  • Ventricular Arrhythmias (a condition that originates in the ventricles, in ventricular arrhythmias, the heart rhythms are abnormally rapid).


However, under the following circumstances, a heart transplant may not be a wise idea

  • People with infections or chronic lung or kidney disorders.
  • A case of cancer in the past.
  • Age may be a deciding factor.The recovery from a heart transplant may not be 100% in an aged person.

The heart transplant procedure:
The first step in heart transplant is the availability of a suitable donor. In this case, a donor is a person whose brain is dead but the other organs, including the heart, is healthy and functioning properly. A surgeon performs three operations in a heart transplant.

  • The first operation is essentially the removal of the healthy heart from the donor body. The heart is kept in a cool place, preferably ice (to keep the heart alive and in good condition until the heart transplant takes place).
  • In the second operation, the recipient's damaged or diseased heart is operated out.The situation may, however, be complicated if the patient had a heart surgery in the past.
  • The third and the final surgery involves implanting the donor heart into the recipient body (the recipient's upper heart chambers and the atrial back wall are however not removed).
  • Once the implantation takes place (without any complications), the surgeons sew the heart into place.
  • The blood vessels are then connected back to the heart and the lungs. The heart starts beating again once it is warmed up.
  • To enable the patient to receive the nutrients and oxygen (during the heart transplant), the patient is put on a heart-lung machine.
  • If no complications develop after the transplant, the patient is discharged within a fortnight.

In some unfortunate cases, there may be organ rejection. The condition arises when the recipient's immune cells see the transplanted heart as non-self (foreign agents). If left unattended, it may damage the heart. Immunosuppressant drugs can help avert the rejection. However, it is important to monitor the patient closely for any infections that may arise to the administration of the immunosuppressants. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Its a tricky question as utility of a surgery will depend on your full case study & will depend on your morbidity like age, lifestyle, family history. So your cardiologist is a better person to suggest it. Please take opinion of at least two cardiologists.
