Sudden Cardiac Arrest - How To Counter It?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest - How To Counter It?

Cardiac arrest is reported to be the number one cause of sudden death for people over the age of 40. As it strikes fast and without prior warning, it usually leaves no time for getting help to the patient. Many lives can be saved if the necessary first aid is given immediately by people who know what to do in case of a cardiac arrest.

So first let us know about the signs of a cardiac arrest:

  1. Loss of consciousness: A person may feel dizzy, sweat, faint or collapse suddenly. You can tell if someone has just fainted and not had a cardiac arrest if they are still breathing or have a pulse.
  2. No breathing
  3. No pulse
  4. Muscle twitching.

Now that you have recognized the signs; here is what you can do:

  1. Call the ambulance and try getting an emergency medical professional to attend to the person.
  2. If professional help isn't available, emergency resuscitation measures must begin. An automated external defibrillator (AED) can rapidly determine whether the person has an abnormal heart rhythm that can be treated by an electric shock (called defibrillation). AEDs are available in many public gathering places, such as stadiums and concert halls. An AED is used before calling for help and before attempting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) because an AED is more likely to save lives. If the AED detects ventricular fibrillation, it provides an electrical shock (defibrillation) that can restore normal heart rhythm and start the heart beating again. Emergency medical care should be obtained even if the heart has started beating again. If a person remains in cardiac arrest after an AED is used, CPR should be done.
  3. If a person remains in cardiac arrest after an AED is used, other measures are begun, such as opening the airway and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
  4. CPR combines artificial respiration (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, or rescue breathing) to supply oxygen to the lungs with chest compressions, which circulate oxygen to the brain and other vital organs by forcing blood out of the heart.

To do CPR (artificial respiration), the rescuer's mouth covers the person's mouth and then rescuer slowly exhales air into the person's lungs (rescue breaths). The person's airway must remain opened during artificial respiration. To prevent air from escaping from the person's nose, the person's nose can be pinched shut as the rescuer exhales into the mouth.

Talk to your doctor to find out if you are at risk of a cardiac arrest.

Dear Lybrate user, melaglow cream is prescribed for patients suffering from hyperpigmentation. This drug helps in lightening dark spots and overall brightening of the skin. It also makes the skin more firm by aiding the regeneration of skin cells for reduction of patches. Kojivit gel works by treating or preventing melasma; controlling melanogenesis; reducing the appearance of dark spots; protecting skin from ultraviolet a and b radiations; preventing the oxidative stress; enhancing the skin deposition of hydrophilic skin-whitening agents; inhibiting the dopa oxidase activity of tyrosinase and superoxide scavenging activities. Our doctors usually deal with this kind of issue by administering laser treatment. Whether it is unwanted signs of aging or unwanted hair, laser treatment can answer to those people seeking permanent solutions to these problems. This type of treatment involves tuning the light effectively, using specific wavelengths for emission to create controlling beams. Compared to the traditional approach, laser treatments results in faster recovery and less pain. We are inviting you to avail our video consultation service. This shall enable you to discuss this kind of issue with one of our senior doctors pretty conveniently.

Depression at this late years of life, is more common. Moreover, the change of environment and new faces around challenges her. What are her medical conditions? How long was she counselled to go to a rest home. Depression at this age can be treated with mirtazapine, if there are no contraindications. The dose of mirtazapine need to be increased depending on her drowsiness and other side effects, may be upto 90 mg/day. Like all antidepressants, mirtazapine also takes 2-3 weeks to start its antidepressant action. All the symptoms you have described are due to her depression and new unknown environment. Can you shift her back to her familiar home with family around - probably with a hired caretaker?

Lifestyle Changes To Maintain Healthy Skin!

Lifestyle Changes To Maintain Healthy Skin!

While taking care of skin externally is definitely a good idea, maintaining healthy skin from the inside is important as well. These don't happen overnight or don't work with external beauty products but only happen when lifestyle changes are put into place. Let's take a look at some of the well known lifestyle changes or habits that can help you get healthier skin.

1. Stop smoking:Apart from contributing to cancer and being nicknamed death sticks, smoking also causes a person's skin to look older. This is due to the fact that it constricts blood vessels within the body and thus causes wrinkles on the skin by disrupting the normal blood flow. It is thus advisable to give up smoking if you want to have healthier skin.

2. Eat more of dark leafy green vegetables:For skin to be healthy; your body also needs to be healthy internally. The best way to do that is to exercise and eat right. Eating right is an even more important and it is important to remember to include dark leafy vegetable which are packed with nutrients required by the body. Some examples of these foods are:

a. Spinach
b. Broccoli
c. Brussels sprouts
d. Kale
e. Romaine lettuce, etc.

3. Exercising or incorporating at least some forms of movement:It is important to get into some regimen of exercising or working out, be it yoga, running whichever may be light, but makes you move during the day. This is very important as movement and exercise helps the lymphatic system within the body to make the immune system stronger. This will not only boost immunity, but will also help detoxify the body and hence help the skin become healthier.

4. Carry out detoxification diets and procedures at regular intervals: Detoxifying is not just about having a clean diet, but also about detoxifying the skin from the outside. While you can go for a green or fruits only diet or smoothies and cut out many food groups for a few days to detoxify, it is also important to detoxify the skin as well with body wraps, clay treatments, sugar scrubs, salt treatments etc.

5. Manage stress:This is a silent killer in many aspects as stress leads to hypertension and many other ailments. With regards to skin, stress releases cortisol, which over activates the blood vessels and causes it to make the skin over sensitive. This will result in visible redness, blushing and may even cause acne. Get into and start practicing stress management routines to minimize stress that will not only help you have healthy skin but good health in general.
