Radial route is better as it leads to less complications and less hours in hospital and less aftercare with minimum risk of infection or bleeding from site. Regarding constipation, take the person clean by enema in the morning & then take to ot, give some soft nourishment as ga is not required.

Sir, I am a male, aged 85. Got mild heart attack about 30 yrs back. Other wise I am quite OK. Every day, I walk for about 30 mts. (about 3 kms equivalent) My body mass is OK. I am a vegetarian, no smoking and no alcohol etc.Other wise I am having a healthy life. I usually consult a good cardiologist about 2 times in an year. My regular medicines are : Morning after breakfast : Imdur 30, Repolal, Razel-10 After noon after lunch : Aspisol-75 Night after meals : Repace H I some times once on 2 to 3 months gets pain in the chest and the position of pain varies time to time. The pain lasts for 2 to 4 hours. More or less acute in the first hour and gradually diminish. The pain may come in the morning, evening or mid night and so on. The only medicine I take is Sorbitrate - 5mg under the tongue. Some 4 to 6 tablets I consume one after the other each time. I suspect this as mild heart attack. After I become normal, I usually get an ECG which is shown to the doctor. I often told the doctor about this and he chides that a cardiologist alone can diagnosis a heart attacks. My cardiologist works in a reputable hospital around 50 kms away from my place. Once, about 8 yrs back, I got a chest pain around 10 AM. I left my place by car and by the time I could meet the cardiologist it took about 4 to 5 hours. By that time there is no chest pain at all. Still, the doctor insisted me to get admitted in the hospital. There were routine check ups, ECG etc. As my chest pain often lasts 2 to 3 hours only and it completely subsides by the time I could meet the doctor, it appears redundant for the trip besides scaring my family and children. If the chest pain occurs during the night, it may take even 6 or more hours by the time I could meet the doctor. So, I almost made up my mind not to disturb my wife and son at the chest pains and manage with the Sorbitrate - 5mg tablets and preying god. Under these circumstances, is there a better alternative ? Please suggest.

How to reduce my fat quickly and get a healthy body as fast as possible and to prevent cholesterol?
You are looking for too many things but you are not giving time to your body. You can't put time limits on your body. There are no short cuts. It took time to gain this weight so give a decent time for body to be able to lose it too. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

The caloric requirement is based on ideal body weight and level of physical activity and blood sugar levels. Ibw = height in centimeters - 100 x 0.9. If one is following very sedentary life style then ibw x 20 or 25 calories per day.

I am suffering from dry cough. My heart region is paining when I get cough. What should I do now?
Dry cough, may be due to pollution or allergy. Get an x ray done and a complete blood picture that will show signs of allergy and infections if any, including tb. This test costs 200-300/- only. Till then take steam inhalations, salt gargles, warm water with honey, do not smoke (if you do) stay indoors with plants as they emit natural oxygen. Get back here with reports.

Dear lybrate user, loss of libido is one of the side effects of the medication for high blood pressure. Now you surely need to take sexual medicines. You can try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 dry dates (khurma khajur) in a cup of lukewarm milk before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked dry dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days there are many conventional allopathic sexual pills in market such as adegra, viagra, penegra etc. Refrain yourself from using such pills as those pills contain a steroid called sildenafil. This steroid has a unique temporary effect on erectile problems. Patients using these pills for first time often report that their penis remain strong even after ejaculation. Such effects leads the patients to use sildenafil for prolonged course of time as they often feel that a full erection is possible only after taking sildenafil. Moreover it is very low cost & easy availability of this steroid has made it quite common as sexual medicine. But the bitter truth is prolonged use of sildenafil will permanently disable the normal physiological process behind erection & will render your body to become solely dependent upon sildenafil for erection. As a result you won't feel any slightest normal erection without taking sildenafil. This is an irreversible condition & it cannot be treated by any means. Once you attain this condition you become a life-time customer of that steroid sildenafil because you have to take sildenafil in order to satisfy your partner. As prevention is always better than cure I would advise you to check the composition of any sexual pills before buying. Discard any sexual pills which contains sildenafil in its composition. There are other compositions like tadalafil, citadel etc which gives unique result than sildenafil.

Hello doctors, today I came to know that my father aged around 53 is suffering from Retinopathy. The doc. Told him to take vit c supplements (non chewable) and gave some eye drops for a week. After it he will go for laser in three settings. Since he is suffering from diabetics and had previously diagnosed with CAD. My question is, Does VIT-C increase the chances of heart attack.

Vitamin b and c are water soluble vitamins. Water soluble vitamins are eliminated from the body if there is an excess of these vitamins in the body. So you needn't worry about any side effects of these vitamins. There are absolutely no chance for an heart attack with vit c!

How to Diagnose and Manage Acute Coronary Syndrome

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
How to Diagnose and Manage Acute Coronary Syndrome

The word acute coronary syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that are caused by blockage of the blood flow to the heart muscles.  The most common result of this is myocardial infarction or heart attack as it is popularly called. Reduced blood flow leads to death of some portion of the heart muscle wall. While the word heart attack sounds almost fatal, it need not be the case. Knowing how to identify an attack and being aware of some simple measures can help save lives. 

Symptoms
The tell tale signs of a heart attack are as follows:

  • Chest pain and discomfort usually described as a tightness or burning in the chest region
  • Pain along the left side of the shoulder and neck, going up into the jaw, down to the arm
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Profuse sweating 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Dizzy or fuzzy feeling 
  • Tired, extreme fatigue
  • Anxious, apprehensive feeling 

However, be also aware that there are a lot of people who experience a silent heart attack. Women, obese, elderly, and diabetic patients can have silent attacks and depending on severity, either they go on with life as usual or can have a fatal attack.

Diagnosis
Once you are doubtful of a heart attack, the next step is to reach the closest medical facility for a diagnosis.  In addition to a detailed examination and history, the following two tests will be performed.

  1. Electrocardiogram (ECG): A 12-lead ECG will measure electrical activity of the heart and identify irregular electrical activity, which is indicative of a myocardial infarction.
  2. Blood tests:  Presence of certain enzymes in the blood, CK-MB and troponin are indicative of a heart attack.  A complete electrolyte profile also will be done, and increase or decrease of some electrolytes is helpful in diagnosing a heart attack.
  3. In addition to these two, chest radiography, cardiac angiography, echocardiogram, stress test, and computed coronary tomography may also be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Management
Once diagnosed, the first step would be to relieve the symptoms, negate the effects of reduced blood flow, and restore cardiac function. 

  1. Dissolve the clot: Using thrombolytics like clopidogrel 
  2. Nitroglycerin: To dilate the blood vessels and improve blood flow, especially to the heart muscles
  3. Anticoagulant therapy: Blood thinners are usually used to avoid blood clot formation; aspirin and heparin are the most commonly used agents.
  4. Drug therapy: Blood pressure maintaining drugs like beta blockers and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are also used
  5. Use of Statins: Statins are used to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood and stabilize plaque deposits.

In very severe cases, angioplasty and stenting or coronary bypass surgery may be required. Educating people on how to identify a heart attack and manage it is very useful and can help save lives.
