Frequent Cause Of Chest Pain?
Good night, mother always feels skit in the chest, yesterday finished carrying out the examination in the lab, in conclusion, there is a ‘whole anterior ischemic’, but the doctor practices only with cholesterol as diabet, given medicine and does not heal. Is the pain related to the heart?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Whole anterior ischemia means ischemia occurs in the entire wall of the heart muscle or the front of the myocardium. Myocardial ischaemia occurs when blood flow to the heart muscle decreases. The decrease in blood flow is due to a complete or partial blockage of the coronary arteries in the heart muscle. Myocardial ischaemia can interfere with the work of the heart muscle, and reduce the ability of heart pumps. Acute coronary blockage that occurs acutely can cause complaints of a heart attack. Besides myocardial ischemia can also cause serious heart rhythm disorders.
What can't be changed:
1. Age: risk increases in men over 45 years and women over 55 years.
2. Gender: twice male
more risky than in women.
3. Family history
Which can be changed:
- Increased serum lipids
- Alcohol consumption
- Diabetes mellitus
- A diet high in saturated fat, cholesterol and calories
- Less physical activity
- Psychological stress
Symptoms of myocardial ischemia include:
1. Chest pain such as depressed or crushed heavy objects.
2. Pain radiating to the chin, neck, hands, back, and solar plexus.
Spread to the left hand is more common.
3. Accompanied by additional symptoms such as shortness, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, cold sweat, and anxiety.
If the results of a cardiac record show the presence of myocardial ischemia accompanied by the typical symptoms of chest pain as above, as well as an increase in cardiac enzymes on laboratory examination, then it can be ascertained is a heart attack. In such conditions the patient must undergo immediate treatment to save the function of the heart muscle.
If in the case of patients experiencing typical chest pain complaints as above with a history of having risk factors, you should immediately conduct further consultations with your doctor for adequate examination and treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
