Is Sudden Fainting The Cause Of Hyperthermia?
Peace for the respected doctor, I am Azman from Malaysia, I want to ask, is there any sudden threat in hypertension? However, there is little hypertension symptom in patients. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fainting (syncope) is a condition where consciousness decreases suddenly and is temporary due to decreased blood supply to the brain. There are many triggers for this condition, including:
Vasovagal attack (vasovagal attack); that is because of a sudden drop in blood pressure which results in blood flow to the brain also decreases
Severe emotional stress, anxiety, fear, panic, or considerable pain
Use of alcohol or certain drugs
Disorders of the autonomic nervous system
Other conditions that interfere with the work of the nervous system, such as diabetes, malnutrition, amyloidosis, dehydration
Disorders of the heart or blood vessels, for example due to arrhythmias, heart valve disorders
Conditions that cause unusual stimulation patterns, such as coughing (cough syncope), urination (micturution syncope), stretching of the neck and arms (stretch syncope)
Hyperventilation, and so on
Hyperthermia can also cause fainting. This condition can occur due to various mechanisms, including:
Hyperthermia causes sweat production to increase, causing dehydration, and decreasing blood flow to the brain
Hyperthermia causes blood vessels to dilate (widen in diameter) to reduce body temperature, thereby reducing blood flow to the brain
Hyperthermia that is not handled properly can interfere with various organ functions, including the heart that pumps blood to the brain
Not always people with hyperthermia will show typical clinical symptoms. However, considering that there are many more possibilities that can cause fainting, you should not make conclusions too early. First check the patient to the doctor so that it is further evaluated, what are the possibilities that cause it to faint. That way, the handling can be done on target.
Hope this helps ...
