Excerpt from the article: What happens after the first myocardial infarction?
Signs of a heart attack:
The most common symptom of myocardial infarction, both in women and men is chest pain or discomfort. But women often meet some other symptoms, especially difficulty breathing, nausea accompanied by vomiting, and pain in chest and back.
What to do in case of heart attack?
Half of all heart attack deaths occur within the first 3-4 hours after symptoms started. It is important that these symptoms are recognized and treated as a medical emergency. With how quickly treatment is initiated so the patient is more likely to survive. Chewing an aspirin tablets after being called ambulance may reduce the size of thrombus blocking the coronary artery. It can be given a beta blocker to slow the heart rate for heart to not work so hard and to reduce myocardial necrosis. Person who suffered a heart attack is given oxygen to help the heart work better and to reduce infarction area. Therapy includes antiplatelet agents and anticoagulants to dissolve the thrombus. If patients do not respond to drug therapy is chosen for angioplasty or surgical coronary artery bypass, especially in people who have suffered a severe heart attack.
Myocardial infarction is associated with a mortality of 30%, over half of deaths occurring during the pre-hospital. The prognosis is variable and depends on therapeutic intervention, size of infarcted area and therapeutic post-stroke control.
An Activated Stabilized Liquid Oxygen supplement, like OxygenSuperCharger, can increase the amount of oxygen in the red blood cells and feed the muscles of the body, such as the heart muscle, additional oxygen when needed.
