Despite this, there are many such diseases, about which we are not even aware and they make us their victims. One such disease is cardiac arrest, about which people know very little. But this is a serious condition, in which the heart can suddenly stop beating and the heartbeat becomes irregular. Every year one in several thousand people die from it. So let's know about this disease, the symptoms, and methods of prevention.
What is cardiac arrest?
Actually, some people consider cardiac arrest as a heart attack, but these two are different. It is important to understand here that cardiac arrest is more dangerous than a heart attack. If this disease is not treated on time, then the person can even die. In this, due to electrical imbalance, the heart stops beating, due to which the person is unable to breathe and starts gasping. In such a situation, it is very important to get treatment on time.
These are the symptoms
Sudden loss of consciousness and then suddenly falling. At the same time, even when the patient is shaken, he does not give any reaction.
- sudden rapid heartbeat
The person is unable to breathe normally
-There is no blood supply to other parts of the body and brain
Pulse and blood pressure stop.
can help like this
If a person has suffered a cardiac arrest, the first thing you have to do is to call the emergency number (on the hospital number) and ask for help.
At the same time, you should immediately give CPR to the patient. A patient's life can also be saved by giving CPR.
You can give CPR like this
1. To give CPR, you have to first apply 30 times pressure on the patient's chest. Clasp both your hands together and place them in the middle of the person's chest.
2. After this, push hard at the center of the chest ie the middle. The push should be such that the chest moves inwards about an inch. You have to press it at the rate of 100 times in a minute. During this, keep in mind that between compressions, let the chest rise completely. You will have to continue CPR until medical help arrives.
These are the ways to avoid
For this, it is most important that you stay fit and stay healthy.
Eat a good diet, which is nutritious, low in carbohydrates, and low in cholesterol
Consume less oily food. At the same time, it would be better to minimize the consumption of sweet foods or not, because they can lead to weight gain and increase the risk of heart diseases.
-Alcohol and smoking if you do, then quit today as they work to increase heart-related problems
To avoid this, physical activity is of great importance.
