The First Treatment For Cough For Heart Sufferers?
Hello, my father is a heart sufferer, lately he often coughs until he can’t sleep, what medicine is suitable for my father? and what is the first treatment? thank you
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Coughing complaints experienced by your father with a history of previous heart disease may be caused by a decrease in stamina or your father is experiencing physical fatigue that exceeds the usual condition. Decreased stamina due to physical fatigue can trigger complaints your father's immune system decreases, causing inflammation of the throat or other respiratory disorders outside of heart problems they experienced. So if the throat is a trigger for cough complaints, then your father should immediately consult directly with the family doctor or cardiologist. Patient's treatment can only be given by a doctor who does a physical examination, so I cannot give treatment advice without a clinical examination of the patient.
In addition to consulting directly with the doctor, some efforts can also be done namely adequate rest, avoid cigarettes, avoid sleeping late, get enough water, enough nutritious food and avoid oily foods.
Some of the conditions below can also cause complaints of cough in patients with a history of heart problems, namely:
1. lung infection
2. side effects of drugs taken
4. accompanying complaints in cardiac patients
5. complications of gastric disorders
Therefore, for appropriate treatment and care, it is important to ascertain the cause of your father's coughing. This can be done in consultation directly with your father's cardiologist. The results of physical examination and supporting examinations (blood tests, radiology, or heart record) can be a reference for diagnosis and treatment for your father.
