Heart attack is one of the major causes of deaths in the world. The main reason for heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrest is high blood pressure and high level of cholesterol. Due to the high cases of heart attack and cardiac arrest, pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars on drugs for heart disease.
Coping With Cardiac Arrest
About a year ago, my 70 years old father had a cardiac arrest. Luckily, he got medical attention and he not only survived but also recovered quickly.
When my father had cardiac arrest, I was not in home, my mom informed me on phone. I drove to my home immediately. My wife and I took father to the hospital and admitted him in the emergency ward.
We did not know father had cardiac attack until the doctor who attended father in hospital told us.
My father stayed in the hospital for 4 days, had numerous tests, including blood tests, ECG, ECHO, TMT etc.
Before father had cardiac arrest, I knew nothing about cardiac arrest, heart stroke and heart attack. I thought these were all same conditions. Now, I am learning prevention and treatment of cardiac arrest and heart attack.
Heart attack is inability of the heart to pump enough blood to sustain normal bodily functions a sudden severe instance of abnormal heart function.
Stroke is a sudden loss of consciousness because of lack of oxygen in the brain due to the rupture or blockage of a blood vessel.
Cardiac attest is a failure of the ventricles of the heart to contract due to the absence of the heartbeat. Stroke is also called cardiopulmonary arrest caused by lack of oxygen in the heart that may trigger death.
Truth About Angioplasty Surgery
Normally, when you have problems in your heart, you doctor might suggest you to perform angioplasty. This is a minor heart operation where a small spring is attached to the heart nerve. This spring is called stent. Production cost for stent is just about $3, however, stent is sold at around 3-8 thousand USD.
Usually, Angioplasty surgery does not succeed because the spring, stent, which is inserted in the heart valve accumulates blockage (cholesterol or fat deposits) at the ends, which promotes another heart attack. Some medical professionals even may ask you to do another Angioplasty surgery. Most of the time, Angioplasty triggers high level of cholesterol, or heart attack. There is a lot of money involved in the process, and at the end doctors and pharmaceutical companies make money.
