I am 33, having sinus tachycardia so taking tablet (telmisartan metoprolol) suggested by cardiologist since 2 yrs. BP absolutely normal 120/80 whenever I check it. Stil 5 months back I was feeling some needle type pain and reading about heart issues made me scared so done EKG. Which shows abnormal EKG with probably mi infarction but impression was no significant changes in the t-st wave. But doc said sometimes machine is at fault so done stress test which I ran well and completely normal. 2d echo was normal too except mild mitral valve prolapse but again doc said lot of ppl hv it. Now last 3 nights on finishing work had to wake till morning and sleep 4-5 hours but changed timings. Now some very small needle type around chest on off comes and goes but now really concern is once I lie down I get sleep quickly (since past a month). Once I am in deep sleep, I may hv strange dream which makes me suddenly wake up and even eyes open I can see that dream for mini seconds and heart is racing and it gets cool down in few min but once woke up not able sleep easily. Today afternoon while having nap, same thing happened, was very sleepy as earlier day not slept much, after few min of slept I murmur some string and found heart racing and woke up. After that I might slept 1: 45 am today and got up 1: 52 with hand thrown feeling and heart racing. Then I able to sleep like. 3 am and nd got up around 4 with palm of hand felt any, heavy,yellow in color but once I woke up it gone in Mili seconds and heart racing which cools down in few seconds. Now almost every time I sleep since 2 days it's happening. Guys please tell me anyone experienced or to whom should I consult.
A sudden cardiac arrest is not same as a normal heart attack. While a heart attack refers to the blocking of blood flow to the heart, a sudden cardiac arrest refers to when the heart stops beating unexpectedly. Sudden cardiac arrests occur without warning and often this condition is triggered by electrical malfunctioning in the heart that causes arrhythmia. When the heart stops beating, blood cannot be pumped to the brain and other organs and the person loses consciousness. If a patient does not receive immediate treatment, this could be fatal. Hence it is important to know what first aid a person experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest requires.
Do not wait for someone else to help a person experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest. The first few moments after such an experience are critical and hence your decision to help is what could save the person’s life.
Call a Doctor
The first thing to do when you see someone experiencing a cardiac arrest is to call emergency and request an ambulance. If you do not have a phone available, ask someone else to do it.
After a cardiac arrest, it is essential to get the heart to start beating again as soon as possible. CPR or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation can save lives in this situation. If you are trained in this procedure, start with 30 chest compressions before checking the patient’s airway and performing rescue breathing. If you are not trained in CPR, ask the people around if anyone else is.
If no one around can perform CPR, start hands-only CPR. Make the person lie flat on their back and kneel next to their shoulders. Place the heel of one palm in the centre of the person’s chest with the other hand over it. Keep your elbows straight and position your elbows such that they are directly over your hands. Use your upper body weight to push down straight on the person’s chest and release. Try and achieve a rate of 100 compressions a minute. Continue until the person starts breathing again or medical help arrives.
Use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
If an AED is available, place the electrode pads on the person’s chest as shown in the diagrams that come along with the AED. Follow the visual and voice prompts. Do not worry if the AED shocks the patient as this electrical therapy can help restart the heart. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist and ask a free question.
