Congenital Heart Disease - Factors That Can Lead To It!

Congenital Heart Disease - Factors That Can Lead To It!

Congenital Heart Disease refers to a problem in the structure of heart that is present at birth. It is one of the most common types of birth defect. The defects can arise at the walls of the heart, the valves of the heart and could also take place at the arteries and veins close to the heart. The disease causes great impact in changing the normal flow of blood through the heart.There are many different types of congenital heart defects, ranging from simple ones having no symptoms to complex defects, which are severe and life-threatening symptoms.

Symptoms

  • Congenital heart defect generally is detected in women at the time of ultrasound during pregnancy. In case the doctor comes across abnormal heartbeat, he may further investigate by conducting certain tests in the form of echocardiogram, chest X-ray or MRI scan.
  • This problem might be seen even in newborn babies, due to which they might experience:
    • Skin, fingers, lips and toes which are bluish in colour
    • Experience problem breathing
    • Low weight at the time of birth
    • Chest Pain

There might be other symptoms as well, which may not develop till many years after birth. The symptoms are:

  • Abnormal heart rate
  • Dizziness
  • Frequesnt dizziness
  • Swelling might be seen at certain parts of the body

Causes behind congenital heart disease

Developmental problem in the heart’s structure at an early stage is usually the reason behind congenital heart disease. This defect acts a hindrance to the normal flow of blood through the heart, thus affecting people’s breathing to some extent. Though there is no surety as to why there is a problem in the development of heart, some of the suspected causes are:

  • Any of the family members might be having heart problems.
  • Some prescribed drugs at the time of pregnancy tend to put a child at a higher risk for developing this problem of congenital heart disease.
  • Consumption of alcohol or if you take drugs which are not prescribed by doctor during pregnancy, can lead to an increase in the risk of a child getting diagnosed with a heart defect.
  • Women who have had viral infection during the first three months of pregnancy are more susceptible towards giving birth to children having heart defects.

How to treat congenital heart disease?

Like any other heart disease, treatment for congenital heart disease also depends on the type and extent of the defect.

  • There are certain medicines which allow the heart for function more efficiently, while others can be used to prevent blood clots from forming and also put a check on irregular heartbeat.
  • Implantable heart devices like implantable cardioverter defibrillators can prevent this particular defect by regularising an abnormal heart rate.
  • Catheter procedure followed by doctors where they insert a thin tube into a vein in the leg and move up to the heart, then use small tool by threading through the catheter to rectify the defect.
  • Some rare cases, when the heart disease is too complex to fix, doctor may form heart transplant surgery.

Want to talk regarding Kawasaki disease and prognosis. Role of iv ig. Please suggest.
Kawasaki disease is a multisystem disease which is diagnosed on the basis of many clinical (high fever, rashes, asymmetrical cervical lymphadenopathy, nonpurulant conjuctivitis, strawberry tongue, peeling aseptic pyourea, leykocytosis, high CRP / ESR,) and lab parameters. This needs to be differentiated from bacterial and viral exanthemes. KD may be classified as typical and atypical KD. Scarlet fever is closest DD. All issues can be resolved but coronary artery changes. CA gets involved in 25 to 40 % cases. Echo diagnosis of changes can be seen after 10 days of fever. An early diagnosis is important. Usually IVIG therapy between 5 to 10 day of fever, may prevent coronary artery aneurysm / stenosis in upto 95 to 98% cases. Most accepted theory about the pathogenesis is AUTOIMMUNE process.

How Do You Check Your Own Blood Pressure?

How Do You Check Your Own Blood Pressure?

Measurement of the blood pressure is considered to be an important step in the diagnostic protocol since the flow of blood in the body determines one’s health. Higher the blood pressure, more the risk of health problems.

Now what exactly blood pressure is? It is the pressure exerted by blood on the walls of the blood vessels, specifically on the large arteries of the systemic circulation. The normal resting blood pressure of the human body is 120/80 mm Hg, where 120 is the systolic pressure and 80 is diastolic pressure, measured by the auscultatory method.

Usually, for measuring blood pressure, a physician is consulted. However nowadays, blood pressure can be measured at home itself, thus removing the necessity of visiting a clinic for the same. There is a possibility of the patient being suffering from the ‘White Coat” hypertension, where blood pressure of the patient shoots up in the presence of the physician at the clinic. In such patients, it’s safer to suggest blood pressure measurement at home itself.

Certain factors like stress, smoking, heavy exercise, brisk walking, rapid movements, caffeine and certain medications can alter the pressure of blood. These factors should be avoided. There are two ways by which the blood pressure can be measured at home-

  1. Manual method using a sphygmomanometer
  2. Digital devices

A. Measurement of blood pressure using a sphygmomanometer

Steps:  

1- Sit comfortably at one place and open the kit.

2- Raise your arm to the heart level.

3- Wrap the cuff around your upper arm, preferably the left arm.

4- The cuff should be adjusted to snugly fit. It shouldn’t be too tight.

5- Place the diaphragm (head) of the stethoscope flat against the skin on the inside of your arm.

6- Tighten the valve of the rubber bulb and inflate the cuff.

7- Release the valve slowly and note down the first thumping sound. This is the systolic blood pressure.

8- After the thumping sounds subside, there is a small whooshing sound, following which no sound is audible. Note down this pressure on the gauge, it is termed as diastolic blood pressure.  

B. Digital devices

Steps:

1- Sit comfortably and relaxed with your back supported.

2- Support your arm on a tabletop at an even level with your heart.

3- Place the cuff on the left arm and keep tubing at the centre of your arm facing the front. Place the sensor is correctly.

4- Press the “start” button. When the measurement is complete, readings of your systolic and diastolic blood pressures and your pulse rate will be displayed on the digital panel.

5- Record the reading of the first measurement and obtain another reading of blood pressure after resting.

6- Take the average value of the two readings.

By using these two simple methods and following the above mentioned easy steps, blood pressure can be measured and monitored at home itself. If there is a huge difference between consecutive readings, then it is best to consult the physician for accurate results.

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

Please consult in the OPD with good physician or adut. Cardiologist. Never a medicine must be added or switched without proper clinical exam. Your BP is responding but HR high for age. It should have gone down. You might be having few extra beats.
