What is symptoms of heart disease? How can we identify any heart related disease?
You can save time during a cardiac emergency by planning ahead. Here are some ways to prepare for a heart attack and possibly increase your chances of survival. 1. Know the warning signs Not everyone who has a heart attack experiences the same symptoms, and some people have no symptoms at all. There are, however, some common ones you should know: Chest discomfort (pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain) Pain radiating to the arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach Shortness of breath Other symptoms, for example, sweating, nausea, vomiting or lightheadedness 2. Know what to do If you experience symptoms of a heart attack: Call 911 immediately. Because emergency personnel can begin treatment before you reach the hospital, transport to the hospital in an ambulance is the best way to receive prompt care. If calling 911 is not possible, have someone drive you to the hospital. Do not drive yourself to the hospital unless you have absolutely no other alternative. While waiting for help to arrive, chew a regular-dose aspirin to help prevent blood clots. Take with a glass of water. If you have been prescribed nitroglycerin tablets or spray for angina, take one to three doses to see whether symptoms are relieved. Lie down, breathe deeply and slowly, and try to stay calm. 3. Develop an action plan If you are at high risk for a heart attack, consider some of the following suggestions: Think what you would do if you had a heart attack in various situations, such as at home or while driving. Decide who would take care of any dependents. Make sure these backup people are willing to help out in an emergency. Write down a list of medications you are currently taking, medications you are allergic to, your doctors' phone numbers (both during and after office hours) and contact information for a friend or relative. Keep copies of this information in several places, such as at home, at work, in your car and in your wallet or purse. Give instructions to your family and friends. Tell them the warning signs of a heart attack and what to do if you experience these signs. Encourage them to take a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) class so that they can provide assistance if your breathing or heart stops before the ambulance arrives. Keep a bottle of aspirin in your home, car, office and toiletry bag. Always have your cell phone with you in case you need to call for help.

Hi, My mom is suffering from heart diseases her heart size had increased. can you tell me please?
Often, these focus on the underlying cause, such as: Coronary artery disease: Opening the blockages in the blood vessels that supply oxygen to the heart can improve blood flow to the heart muscle. If your heart is enlarged because of a blockage, its pumping may improve. Don't worry .nothing happens. But its better to consult doctor.

I am diabetic, having hypertension and heart disease, can I take thyronorm tablets.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To treat hypothyroidism only available drug is Levothyroxine tablets. Hence, if you have that condition, then it may be necessary to take Thyroxine tablets. But I can only give a proper yes or know based on actual TSH value, BP reading plus some details on the heart condition. Since nothing is mentioned, it is difficult to give any opinion. Thanks.

Sir what is heart allergy and how to prevent from this disease sir, because I have this problem sir please help me.
The allergy that triggers cardiovascular system is called as heart allergy. You can prevent it .by avoiding foods that cause allergic reactions in you, check weather report. If pollen senstivity is high ,stay indoors Choose wood coverings on floors instead of a carpet Keep windows and doors clean. Clean sofa, cushions ,matress regularly through vaccuming Avoid dry dusting. Clean home with wet cloth Use allergy proof pillows, matress available in market. Moreover go for a homeopathic treatment. It shows wonderful results in such kind of allergies.

Turmeric and especially its most active compound curcumin have many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer. It's a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.

What are the various findings in CT coronary angiogram in case of ischemic heart disease?

What are the various findings in CT coronary angiogram in case of ischemic heart disease?
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is a heart imaging test that helps determine if plaque buildup has narrowed the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply the heart. Plaque is made of various substances such as fat, cholesterol and calcium that deposit along the inner lining of the arteries. Plaque, which builds up over time, can reduce or in some cases completely block blood flow. Patients undergoing a CCTA scan receive an iodine-containing contrast material as an intravenous (IV) injection to ensure the best possible images of the heart blood vessels. Computed tomography, more commonly known as a CT or CAT scan, is a diagnostic medical test that, like traditional x-rays, produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body.

Can there still be heart or lung disease even though the ecg and chest x-ray are absolutely normal?
There are very less chances. But ecg and xray are very basic investigations and does not help much in diagnosis.
