If you are a heart patient, this article will be more than useful for you. We bring you advice on what to do if you feel the first symptoms of a heart attack and introduce them to your family and close friends.
We wrote about how to recognize a heart attack in the article “4 signs that warn of a heart attack”, and today we bring you advice on how to react if you recognize these symptoms.
If you find yourself at home in the moments of the first symptoms, first call the emergency services, and then take medicines against blood clots or for angioplasty (widening of narrowed blood vessels). By doing so, you can reduce the damage caused by a heart attack caused by blocked arteries. The therapy will work much better if it is taken as early as possible.
Try to unlock the outside door to make it easier for the ambulance to get in, then sit on the floor and lean against a wall so you don’t fall if you lose consciousness. Loosen all clothes that are tight or tight and cover yourself so that you don’t get cold.
If you have nitroglycerin with you, take the usual dose.
Many institutions and experts advise taking 325 mg of aspirin in such cases, but if you have already tried it and the effect was harmful, then don’t. Breathe deeply to calm yourself while you wait for help. Panic will constrict your blood vessels and reduce the flow of oxygen.
If you feel the symptoms while on the road, be sure to stop the car and call an ambulance. If you don’t have a mobile phone at hand, stop the first car and ask them to call the hospital.
Never accidentally continue driving, because if you lose consciousness you can cause a traffic accident and put other lives in danger in addition to your own.
If one of the people in your company has a heart attack, immediately call an ambulance and don’t let that person convince you that “maybe it’s nothing.” Doctors say they’ve seen too many cases where people waited too long to call doctors that didn’t end well. Ask the person if they have nitroglycerin with them, offer to bring it to them. Try to calm the person down, talk to them and focus on deep breathing. In western cities there are even street defibrillators for first aid in case of a heart attack and if there are in the city where you live learn how to use them.
If you have been diagnosed with angina, arrhythmia, arteriosclerosis, atrial fibrillation, cardiomyopathy, diastolic blood pressure, heart murmur, palpitation or thrombosis, or know someone who has one of these conditions, you should be familiar with these tips, and we hope that you they won’t be needed though.
