Incorrect: cardiac arrest means a heart attack
Cardiac arrest and heart attack are not one thing. When the heart stops, the heart stops circling. It can be caused by a heart attack, abnormal heart rhythm (VT / VF) or it can also be caused by a heart attack. And if the veins that carry the blood of the heart are blocked for some reason, then the heart does not get enough blood or less blood reaches the heart. At the same time, oxygen levels are reduced. Then a heart attack occurred. Immediate treatment for cardiac arrest is to provide heart massage and electric shock. If this happens, take the patient to a hospital that treats heart disease as soon as possible.
Myth: minors do not have a heart attack.
Many people think that younger people don't have a heart attack. The idea is actually wrong and many people suffer from heart disease because of these misunderstandings, many fall down prematurely. A heart attack can happen to anyone at any age, even after a heart attack. Dhaka Medical College hospital statistics show that between 3 and 5 percent of patients with acute myocardial infarction are less than 6 years old.
If a minor smokes, does not work hard, suffers from uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes, eats more fats and fatty foods, blood cholesterol is high – he is still at risk of heart disease.
Myth: Patients with low blood pressure are not susceptible to heart disease.
This does not mean that people with lower blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease, but are less likely to have heart disease. In addition, you should check if you have diabetes, smoke or have high cholesterol. Looking at these things, you can really say his fears.
Myth: Asthma sufferers are more likely to suffer from heart disease.
It's not like that patients with asthma will get heart disease. It depends on whether you have diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol or not. However, people with uncontrolled asthma or suffering from regular respiratory diseases may have a national heart disease or ischemic heart disease.
