Reducing Tightness In People With Heart Disease?
Good evening. My parents just returned from hospitalization in the hospital there are indeed symptoms of heart and tightness. Still an hour at home relapse again tightness. Is the action taken to reduce tightness?
Hello Ledy, thanks for asking.
Actually, it would be better if you could provide information about the symptoms of heart problems experienced by your parents, so that we can provide more targeted advice. Basically, all types of heart disorders that cause heart pump disorders, potentially causing shortness of breath, swelling in the legs or arms, and chest pain. A disrupted heart pump can indicate a heart failure. In these conditions, blood cannot be pumped optimally throughout the body. As a result, blood flow that carries nutrients and oxygen to the tissues will be inhibited. In addition, due to a poor heart pump, blood will be retained and collected in the body veins and pulmonary veins. This is what causes shortness of breath.
Medically, it must be sought for heart problems, so that they can be treated appropriately. As long as the heart trouble is not controlled, then complaints of shortness of breath will continue to recur. You can help reduce the shortness of breath by:
Lay the patient's body in a 45 degree position. Prop head and back with a pillow.
Position the patient's body comfortably.
Avoid excessive activity.
Discuss this with the treating cardiologist. The doctor will explain your parents' current condition, the extent to which the disease process is already running, and what actions can be taken to reduce the symptoms. Avoid giving drugs or supplements outside the doctor's recommendation. If worsening symptoms occur immediately take your parents to the hospital.
Thus the information that I can give. May your parents find a cure soon. Regards.
