Heart Attack : Save yourself from the deadly grip of cardiac disorder

Heart Attack : Save yourself from the deadly grip of cardiac disorder

Kolkata, Aug 4 (UNI) Heart Attack or Acute Myocardial Infraction is as life-threatning as it is believed to be, according to Dr Sabyasachi Pal, Senior Cardiologist at Calcutta Medical Research Institute. ' It is one of the disorders with extremely high-mortality rate across the world and largely occurs when blood flow to the heart is suddenly cut off, causing severe tissue damage. This happens as a result of a blockage in one or more of the coronary arteries which prevent the oxygen-rich blood from reaching certain specific section of the organ. The choked-up part of the heart which is normally energized by the blood flow by the one or more arteries ,starts dying as the cells can’t replenish themselves anymore, ' he said. ' Without a doubt, a heart attack is a deadly disease. Even in a developed country like the USA, 1/3 of heart attack patients can’t reach hospital on time, thus dying instantly, ' he added. ' In India, because of lack of proper survey and research, we don’t have such strong statistics to support the rampant deaths caused by it. Many patients’ deaths are reported even after getting admitted to the hospital. Late diagnosis is mostly to be blamed for such deaths. It is important to remember that during a heart attack every minute is precious as early diagnosis and immediate treatment can avert the most possible dangers, ' Dr Pal stated. ' For this common people should be made aware about the symptoms of the disorder and the consequences of late treatment. Everyone must know that if any of the symptoms of heart attack is found in the patient, then without wasting another minute he/ she should be taken to the nearest tertiary care hospital where heart attack is treated with utmost urgency, ' he informed. ' Heart attack is a critical disorder where a patient’s survival to a great extent depends on his/her awareness. In Europe and North America due to evolutionary medical advancement the patients have more chances to survive, ' Dr Pal opined. ' With the well-equipped ambulance facilities easily available, the patients are attended straight away as the treatment starts from the ambulance ride to hospital itself, while in India a patient can only be treated when he is admitted to the hospital. Such emergency ambulance services with cutting-edge medical treatment facility is the only way of saving a patient’s life, ' he said. UNI SJC KK
