How To Manage Cardiomyopathy?
What is the treatment of cardiomyopathy? Thank you
Cardiomyopathy is a disruption in heart pump function without valve abnormalities, hypertension, ischemia, and without congenital abnormalities. Cardiomyopathy consists of many types. AHA and ESC have different ways of classifying cardiomyopathy.
Based on the AHA, the division of cardiomyopathy is in the form of:
dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) hypertrophic cardiomyopathy restrictive cardiomyopathy arrhythmogenic right ventricular (ARVC) inflammatory cardiomyopathy viral cardiomyopathy Based on genomics, the division of cardiomyopathy can be in the form of:
Primary cardiomyopathies (ie genetic, nongenetic, and acquired). The disorder is only limited to the heart. Secondary cardiomyopathies. Related to systemic abnormalities, such as amyloidosis, hemochromatosis, sarcoidosis, autoimmune / collagen vascular diseases, toxins, post cancer therapy, and endocrine related disorders. You can see that the classification is very broad. Each cardiomyopathy can have similar symptoms and can also have different symptoms. Generally a person is suspected of having cardiomyopathy if there is no previous history of cardiovascular disease, but there are signs and symptoms of heart failure.
The diagnosis must be based on a basic physical examination, ECG, echocardiography, blood sample examination, radiological examination, and other examinations that lead to the detection of systemic abnormalities. Guidelines for managing cardiomyopathy will be different for each classification. Guidelines also differ depending on what organization issues the guidelines.
Therefore, you should specify what type of cardiomyopathy and guidelines according to what organization. If you are a health practitioner, please refer to the guidelines based on the AHA or ESC. Please ask us again if you experience an actual case with yourself or your family.
Thus my brief explanation. Regards.
