Myocardial infarction is difficult to prevent, and regular health checkups are the best strategy!
Every now and then, there will be news about the sudden death of a celebrity due to myocardial infarction in newspapers and magazines. According to clinical statistics, one of the three patients with myocardial infarction has almost no symptoms, but died before arriving at the hospital. E-DA Hospital-Huei-Fong Hung, director of the general medical department, said that myocardial infarction is like burning a house and must be rescued immediately, otherwise the chance of sudden death is extremely high.
Sports-loving Mr. Lin, when the weather became cold and got up to close the window, his chest suddenly seemed to be pressed by a big stone, making him breathless, unable to breathe, and weak limbs. He felt bad and quickly took a taxi to the hospital. The examination revealed that it was a myocardial infarction and cardiac catheterization surgery must be performed immediately.
Mr. Li’s husband is not as lucky as Mr. Lin. Mr. Li, who will exercise in the park after dinner every day, suddenly feels chest discomfort and wants to take a rest. He lies on the sofa and closes his eyes to rest. When the wife finds something wrong, He was taken to the hospital urgently, but his husband was dead and there was no way to save it.
Angina and chest tightness are typical symptoms of myocardial infarction. However, not everyone will experience angina. Some people may experience sudden pain in their jaw pain, stomach pain, shoulder pain, ear pain, and left arm. Dr. Huei-Fong Hung emphasized that chest pain and tightness may sometimes be warning signs of other diseases in the body, such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastric ulcers, mood disorders or aortic dissection.
Usually, myocardial infarction does not show "chest pain", but manifests as "chest tightness". According to clinical experience, when the patient seeks a doctor, the main complaint is not "pain", but usually "tightness, tightness, tying, "It seems to be crushed by a stone, stepped on by the elephant's foot," etc.
Modern people have a lot of work pressure, and the proportion of chest pain and tightness is quite high.
How do ordinary people know whether chest pain and tightness are a precursor to myocardial infarction?
Huei-Fong Hung admits that this is a bit difficult, but he believes that there is usually a cause for myocardial infarction. If the chest pain is combined with a history of smoking, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, etc., the probability of myocardial infarction will be more High, it is best to see a doctor immediately.
According to statistics from the Ministry of Health and Welfare, of every 100 patients with coronary heart disease, 60 will die suddenly at the first attack. It is clinically found that although autumn and winter are the high season for myocardial infarction, what is more worrying is that young adults in their 30s and 40s are under heavy work pressure, and long-term smoking can easily lead to narrowing of the blood vessels of the heart and trigger myocardial infarction.
Myocardial infarction is difficult to prevent, and regular physical health check is the best way!
With the westernization of the diet, there are more and more heart diseases, and there is a tendency to become younger; once severe chest pain and chest tightness occur, it is best not to ignore it. Huei-Fong Hung suggested that after the age of 40, you can do exercise electrocardiogram or myocardial contrast examination at your own expense.
It's the best way to keep yourself from worrying!
Heart disease has gradually rejuvenated, and if young people feel chest discomfort, it is best not to hold an overwhelming mentality, it may be a precursor to myocardial infarction. Especially those who have smoking, obesity, etc., can not be ignored, they should arrange a health check immediately.
Early detection of cerebrovascular and myocardial infarction:
Static electrocardiogram ECG check:
Highly sensitive heart inflammation index Hs CRP:
Budget-style no-menu check plan:
"Budget planning" means that when you don't know what items to inspect, you are welcome to discuss with Kao Medical technologist. You can arrange the items you want to test according to your budget.
Myocardial infarction is like burning a house,
Also like Mudflow
Dr. Hong Huifeng explained that Myocardial infarction is like burning a house, described as very expressive,
Because the symptom is that your life is burning every minute and every second. The sooner you go to the doctor, the less damage you will have, and the more serious the damage will be the later you go to the doctor.
He said that the process of myocardial infarction can also be described by Mudflow, blood vessels are like highways, myocardial infarction is like Mudflow, the occurrence of Mudflow is related to the soil and water conservation (arteriosclerosis) of the mountain wall (vascular wall), and once Mudflow occurs From time to time, the entire highway will be covered and destroyed, causing the road to be closed and unusable for an instant.
Acute myocardial infarction comes and goes quickly. Once symptoms are present, it must be treated immediately, otherwise the heart will be damaged quickly and eventually die of heart failure.
The sign of myocardial infarction, not chest pain, is often "chest tightness"!
Myocardial infarction often has no symptoms. According to the famous Framinghan Heart Study, it has been found that up to 62% of men and 46% of women, the first heart attack is myocardial infarction or sudden death.
There was no warning at all beforehand.
Patients usually feel chest tight, with a feeling of oppression like being crushed by a big stone, usually rest for 5 to 10 minutes, but it will get better; but after a while, chest tightness and uncomfortable symptoms will reappear, combined with vomiting, breathing Cold sweat, it is best to hurry to the hospital at this time, let the doctor do a thorough examination.
