Cardiovascular symptoms - challenging, misdiagnosed: Dr Sushil
3/3/2024 9:54:04 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 3: In view of very less awareness regarding the cardinal symptoms of cardiovascular symptoms among general masses as well as many times misdiagnosed Head Department of Cardiology GMCH Jammu Dr Sushil Sharma held a day long cardiac awareness cum health Check up Camp at Govt High School , Kotli Jijjan, Block Tikri Udhampur so as cardiac symptoms are recognised at an earlier stages and patient is referred to nearby cardiac facility at the earliest thereby reducing morbidity and mortality.
While interacting with the people Dr Sushil stated that at least three-quarters of the world's deaths from CVDs occur in low- and middle-income countries. People living in low- and middle-income countries often do not have the benefit of primary health care programmes for early detection and treatment of people with risk factors for CVDs. People in low- and middle-income countries who suffer from CVDs and other non communicable diseases have less access to effective and equitable health care services which respond to their needs. As a result, for many people in these countries detection is often late in the course of the disease and people die at a younger age from CVDs and other non communicable diseases, often in their most productive years. A person may be symptomatic (physically experiencing the disease) or asymptomatic (not feeling anything at all). Heart attacks and strokes are usually acute events and are mainly caused by a blockage that prevents blood from flowing to the heart or brain. The most common reason for this is a build-up of fatty deposits on the inner walls of the blood vessels that supply the heart or brain. Strokes can be caused by bleeding from a blood vessel in the brain or from blood clots.
He elaborated that the most important behavioural risk factors of heart disease and stroke are unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and harmful use of alcohol. The effects of behavioural risk factors may show up in individuals as raised blood pressure, raised blood glucose, raised blood lipids, and overweight and obesity. These "intermediate risks factors" can be measured in primary care facilities and indicate an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other complications. Symptoms will vary depending on the specific condition. Some conditions, such as diabetes or hypertension may initially cause no symptoms at all. However, typical symptoms of an underlying cardiovascular issue include: pain or pressure in the chest, which may indicate angina/pain or discomfort in the arms, left shoulder, elbows, jaw, or back shortness of breath, nausea and fatigue lightheadedness or dizziness cold sweats although these are the most common ones.
He added that there are no symptoms of the underlying disease of the blood vessels. A heart attack or stroke may be the first sign of underlying disease. Symptoms of a heart attack include: pain or discomfort in the centre of the chest; and/or pain or discomfort in the arms, the left shoulder, elbows, jaw, or back. In addition the person may experience difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath; nausea or vomiting; light-headedness or faintness; a cold sweat; and turning pale. Women are more likely than men to have shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and back or jaw pain, he said.
Prominent members of the area Rameshwer Singh, Jagmohan Singh, Raghuveer Singh, and Ashok Kumar appreciated the efforts of Dr Sushil and his team for conducting cardiac awareness cum health checkup camp in their locality for the welfare of people and the society.
Others who were part of this Camp includes Dr Venkatesh Yellupu. Paramedics and volunteers includes Raghav Rajput, Gourav Sharma, Vikas Kumar, Rajkumar, Paramveer Singh, Rajinder Singh, Rahul Vaid, Rohit Nayyar and Nirvair Singh Bali.
