The Possibility Of Sufferers Of Stable Angina Pectoris May Die Suddenly?
can sufferers of angina pectoris die suddenly when they relapse at home?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Stable angina pectoris is the main clinical sign in about 50% of patients who have coronary heart disease. Patients present with typical chest pain, such as feeling pressured or feeling like a heavy burden.
Classification of angina as follows:
1. Stable Angina Pectoris
Complaints of chest pain arise when doing a job, according to the severity of the trigger.
2. Unstable Angina Pectoris
Angina can occur at rest or at work.
Sudden changes from stable to unstable angina or even life-threatening heart attacks are associated with plaque tears at high stress locations, which can cause thrombus or large blockages due to platelet aggregation to the area. If the thrombus completely blocks the coronary arteries, it will cause the death of heart muscle cells until death. These plaque tears cannot be predicted when they occur and can be fatal if not treated immediately.
For this reason it is important to minimize these risks by avoiding risk factors that can be changed such as controlling emotions and reducing heavy work which requires a lot of oxygen in its activities, reducing consumption of fatty foods, stopping consumption of cigarettes and alcohol, maintaining ideal body weight, regulating diet, exercising light exercise regularly, if you have a history of diabetes, continue to treat diabetes regularly, take control of blood lipid levels, and control blood pressure.
That's all, hope you can help
