Speaking of myocardial infarction, many people may not know what kind of disease it is, but everyone can feel it more or less: it is very dangerous.
Yes, acute myocardial infarction is indeed a disease that patients cannot handle by themselves and has a high mortality rate. Once it occurs, patients or their families should call 120 immediately.
But before the paramedics arrive, can you do some what? Recently, the 10-second first aid method posted on the Internet is very popular and seems not difficult. Can it really save lives?
There are indeed methods for family self-help, but the practical value of this online self-help method is only zero.
Myocardial infarction 10 seconds self-help method? Pull
Let’s look at this self-help method first:
This statement looks very professional. I don’t know how many people have fooled it, but why is it said that its actual value is zero?
First, it is impossible to judge when what should start coughing to save himself.
Myocardial infarction has precursors (the following article will elaborate on it), but cardiac arrest caused by myocardial infarction is random, and no one knows that what will occur, so it is impossible to know that the so-called cough self-help method should be started in what.
Not only that, repeated deep breathing and cough will obviously increase physical exertion and oxygen consumption, but will increase the risk of cardiac arrest.
This leads to a very confusing situation: the heartbeat has not stopped, and this method will aggravate the disease. The heart stopped, you didn’t know it or you didn’t have time to respond.
Second, even if the timing is right, its role is far from enough to save itself.
What if this method is just used during cardiac arrest?
Cough method and cardiopulmonary resuscitation chest compression principle is similar: through the chest pump function, compression heart passive ejection, but to ensure the effect, the frequency per minute cannot be less than 100 times. And cough method a minute at most about 20 times, completely unable to meet the needs of brain blood supply, this blood supply can only let a person survive, consciousness vague, how to talk about continuous self-help?
Speaking of which, this theoretically feasible method is also theoretically untenable.
The reality is cruel. Once the heart stops suddenly, I cannot do basic what. The important thing is to do a good job of calling for help when myocardial infarction occurs and wait for the arrival of medical personnel in the most appropriate way.
What should I do if I suffer from myocardial infarction?
1. Call for help in time and call 120
The ultimate solution is to go to the hospital for real myocardial infarction.
If myocardial infarction is possible (for example, chest tightness and chest pain lasting for more than 15 minutes cannot be relieved by taking medicine), you should call the emergency phone in the first place. Don’t struggle, time is life.
- If there is no one else in the family, remember to open the door for emergency personnel to rescue. Notify the key relatives immediately after contacting the emergency personnel. If it is a person, it is recommended to write down the contact information of the key family members and give it to the emergency personnel.
2. Control your emotions and reduce your activities
Emotional excitement and activities will increase oxygen consumption in the heart and increase risks.
It is suggested to stay in bed or lie down on the spot as soon as possible. Take the initiative to restrain your nervousness and take slow deep breaths (deep breaths should not be too fast, usually once every 5 seconds).
3. If conditions permit, oxygen can be inhaled.
If conditions permit, oxygen inhalation is a better choice.
Step 4: Don’t take drugs indiscriminately
Some myocardial infarction will have hypotension, and taking nitroglycerin may aggravate the disease.
If there are conditions to measure blood pressure, use it after it is clear that the blood pressure is not low. If there is no condition for measurement, self-feeling dizzy, sweating, etc., must not blindly take it.
If it is not myocardial infarction, but pain caused by other diseases, it may bring troubles to subsequent treatment. If the patient’s blood pressure is too high, taking large doses of aspirin will have the risk of cerebral hemorrhage.
It is better to leave it to the doctor to decide whether to take medicine or not.
Is it possible that what suffered from myocardial infarction?
When myocardial infarction occurs, the body will have some reactions, but this is not to teach everyone [to see a doctor by himself], but to hope that when the body is abnormal, everyone can have the most basic judgment and make appropriate reactions to it, so as to gain more time to save the possible danger.
1. Frequent seizure inducements
Most of them are in a lot of activities, sudden exertion, emotional excitement, shock, eating too much, and suddenly appearing after catching cold.
2. Typical symptoms: chest tightness and chest pain
The most typical symptom of myocardial infarction is chest tightness and pain. Some people may only have chest tightness or chest pain and dyspnea. You will also feel agitated, sweaty, dizzy and scared, and even feel near death in serious cases. 3. Other parts of the body will also suffer from pain.
In addition to what we often say about chest or heart pain (about the size of a palm), some people will also have discomfort in their entire chest, shoulders, left arm, neck and even near their teeth.
4. Attack time: Generally lasts for more than 30 minutes,
Typical myocardial infarction usually lasts for more than 30 minutes, but as long as the attack lasts for more than 15 minutes, it is necessary to pay attention to it.
Some patients only have attacks for a few minutes at a time, but the attacks are frequent. It is also recommended to actively deal with them.
5. High-risk groups
Most of them are middle-aged and elderly people. Generally, men over 40 years old and women over 50 years old are more common.
The incidence rate of smoking, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and obesity will increase significantly.
Having said so much, Dr. Clove just hopes that everyone will understand that acute myocardial infarction is a critical disease that patients cannot handle by themselves and has a high mortality rate. Early treatment is the best way. It is better to make a mistake than to miss it carelessly.
