Myocardial infarction is no stranger to everyone. This disease is ferocious and the consequences are very serious. Recently, the sudden death of a 19-year-old boy in Fujian who drank ice-cold drinks after exercising has attracted widespread attention. While it is regrettable, it also sounded the alarm for us. Dr. She Qiumin, a physician at the Eighth Hospital Affiliated to Guangzhou Medical University, said that although myocardial infarction is a high incidence in winter, we must be careful of myocardial infarction in high temperature days, especially the symptoms of heat stroke and myocardial infarction are very similar, and every year there will be some that look like It is heat stroke, but it is actually a patient with myocardial infarction who comes to see a doctor.

The symptoms of heat stroke and myocardial infarction

There are similarities

Generally speaking, the main symptoms of heat stroke are dizziness, sweating, fatigue, nausea, often accompanied by fever. However, myocardial infarction is often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and chest tightness. Although the symptoms may be mild, it should also be taken seriously. If myocardial infarction is misdiagnosed, it is easy to miss the best time for treatment.

Myocardial infarction is myocardial infarction, which refers to the formation of thrombus on the basis of coronary atherosclerosis, which leads to the interruption of blood flow to the myocardium and causes myocardial necrosis. What are the specific symptoms of the patient?

She Qiumin introduced that the typical symptoms are from the lower jaw to the upper abdomen, suddenly there is a kind of inexplicable or indescribable discomfort, which often lasts for a long time, and should be stopped immediately when the disease occurs Any activity, then sit down and rest, if it doesn’t relieve for a minute or two, you need to take medicine in time. The commonly used drug is nitroglycerin. If the symptoms cannot be relieved by taking 0.5 mg of nitroglycerin, you should call 120 immediately-because the chest pain of myocardial infarction generally lasts for more than 20 minutes, and nitroglycerin cannot be relieved. Chest pain is a typical symptom of myocardial infarction. In addition to chest pain, patients are often accompanied by severe pain, cold sweat, pale complexion, dyspnea, chest tightness, shortness of breath and other uncomfortable symptoms, and even nausea, vomiting, irritability, and occasionally a sense of impending death or even blackness in front of the eyes, syncope, etc.

In the event of a sudden myocardial infarction

Keep in mind the two “120s”

In the event of a sudden myocardial infarction, how should you deal with it?

She Qiumin introduced that there are two “120s” in mind: dial the 120 emergency number in time, and grasp the golden treatment for 120 minutes. Because the best treatment time window for acute myocardial infarction is 2 hours after the onset, commonly known as “golden 120 minutes”, if the blocked blood vessels can be opened within 120 minutes and the blood supply to the myocardium can be restored, most of the myocardium can be prevented from necrosis. If the myocardial infarction occurs for more than 120 minutes, the area of ​​myocardial necrosis will become larger, resulting in heart failure, shock and even death. Even if the life is saved, the heart function will be seriously damaged.

Drinking less water on hot days

Also easy to induce myocardial infarction

The occurrence of myocardial infarction is related to diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. Control blood pressure and blood lipid indicators.

Smoking is also a major risk factor. The intake of nicotine can cause acute coronary spasm, and coronary spasm can easily induce myocardial infarction. It is recommended that everyone quit smoking as much as possible.

In addition, overwork, emotional agitation, overeating, etc. may induce myocardial infarction.

She Qiumin emphasized that if the intake of fluids in hot days is insufficient, myocardial infarction will also be induced, and you should ensure sufficient water intake every day, at least 2000 ml of water a day.

In summer, some young people like to eat late-night snacks, stay up late to play with mobile phones, or work overtime. Fatigue in the middle of the night is also likely to induce myocardial infarction, which should be avoided as much as possible. It should be reminded that once the patient becomes ill, people around you should remember not to move it at will, and to call 120 immediately.
