The risk of a heart attack
According to the sad statistics, a third of heart attacks take place almost asymptomatically, and this triples the risk of death.
There is such a thing in medicine as "silent" heart attacks - these are conditions that are not accompanied by shortness of breath, the appearance of cold sweat, pain syndrome behind the sternum.Most often, such "silent" attacks occur in men, but the chances of dying against such a state are higher in women.The results of this study were published in the medical journal Circulation.
Lead author Elsayed Soliman( Wake Forest Medical Center, North Carolina) notes:
"The consequences of a silent heart attack are just as serious as an attack that manifests itself in full force due to impaired blood flow to the heart muscle in both cases.The patient does not even suspect that he had a heart attack and therefore does not receive the necessary medical care. "
Dr. Solimin and colleagues conducted research on 9.5 thousand middle-aged people.At the beginning of the experiment, they were all healthy and did not have any history of any abnormalities in the work of the cardiovascular system.During 9 years of the experiment, 317 people suffered a heart attack and anogs, 386 - a classic view of this heart attack.The analysis led to the conclusion that the condition in question is more often diagnosed in men, but the risk of dying from such "silent" seizures is higher in women.But at the same time, "silent" heart attacks lead to death three times more often, and the risk of premature death from other causes against the background of myocardial infarctions increased by 34%.
Dr. Soliman explained that patients will learn about the presence of a heart attack transferred on their feet during random examinations.But the therapy should be as powerful and urgent as in the classical development of myocardial infarction, since the heart muscle suffers in the same way in the same way.We recommend that you read: Myocardial infarction: signs, diagnosis, treatment and emergency care for myocardial infarction
Doctors cardiologists strongly recommend not only to lead a healthy lifestyle, play sports, give up bad habits, but also carefully avoid stressful situations - theyMost often become an impetus to the development of heart disease, including dangerous "silent" heart attacks.
