When the heart load is aggravated or the muscle is damaged, the pumping function is reduced, the output blood volume cannot meet the needs of organs and tissues, and the blood in them cannot be smoothly returned to the heart. This state is called heart failure, referred to as ” heart failure “. Some of the following symptoms may indicate impaired heart function.
Nine performances with bad heartNine performances with bad heart
First, when you lie down, you will be short of breath. The patient developed a shortness of breath after a few minutes of lying down, and only slightly relieved after sitting up. At this point, patients should be considered for heart failure. This is due to the increase in blood volume when lying down, resulting in increased airway resistance and shortness of breath in patients. At this time, you should go to the cardiology department in time to eliminate the possibility of pulmonary diseases.
Second, the chest is heavy like a big stone. It is commonly referred to as “chest tightness”. If emotional factors and other organs such as respiratory system function are excluded, it is necessary to consider that the patient may have myocardial ischemia . If chest tightness can not be relieved for several minutes, or even severe chest pain, it is likely to have angina or even acute myocardial infarction (referred to as “myocardial infarction”). You should dial 120 as soon as possible and rush to the nearest hospital. If you have the conditions, you can take nitroglycerin tablets or quick-acting pills.
Third, clothes and shoes suddenly tightened. Clothes and shoes are tightening. Many people may be fat in their first reaction, but for patients with heart disease, it may indicate impaired heart function. This is due to the decrease in cardiac output (the total amount of blood emitted per minute from the ventricle), the decrease in blood flow to the kidneys, the decrease in excretion of water, the swelling of the lower extremities, and the increase in body weight (especially more than 2 kg in 3 days).
Fourth, loss of appetite. In addition to loss of appetite, patients with impaired heart function may also develop symptoms such as bloating , nausea, vomiting, constipation , and upper abdominal pain , mostly due to right heart failure and gastrointestinal congestion.
Fifth, dizziness and dizziness . Dizziness and dizziness are common in daily life, and poor sleep, cervical spondylosis , and hypertension are common causes. However, dizziness and dizziness accompanied by low blood pressure may be caused by impaired heart function. In severe cases, life-threatening conditions such as syncope and cardiogenic shock may occur . In this case, you should seek medical attention promptly.
Sixth, anxiety and anxiety. Most people’s anxiety and anxiety are related to emotions, while others are still feeling guilty, palpitation, and restless when they are emotionally stable. This should consider whether there is heart disease. Increased heart rate and arrhythmia are common causes of flustered anxiety, mostly caused by functional or organic changes in the heart. Early intervention should be performed to prevent further aggravation of symptoms.
Seventh, coughing is not limited. Most people cold symptoms of cough, fever and other symptoms, and the cough will not be much difference in day and night. However, some people do not have fever and other similar cold symptoms, but coughing is more than night. It is more than night at night. When lying down, it is more obvious than sitting up. At this time, be alert to whether the heart function is damaged. This may be caused by pulmonary congestion, which may be accompanied by irritation of the airway, accompanied by coughing white foam, bloody sputum, and even pink foamy sputum in acute attacks.
Eighth, it is easy to fatigue or fatigue. Many heart disease patients start with fatigue or fatigue, mostly due to impaired left heart function, decreased cardiac output, and can not meet the perfusion of peripheral tissue.
Ninth, oliguria and lower extremity edema. There are oliguria and lower extremity edema, and many people often think that there is a problem with the kidneys. In fact, impaired heart function can lead to insufficient blood flow to the kidneys or excessive venous pressure, often resulting in oliguria and lower extremity edema. Long-term ischemia of the kidney can cause deterioration of renal function, proteinuria, rise in serum creatinine, and a vicious circle of increased heart failure.
In case of any one or more of the above mentioned “sadness” symptoms, you should seek medical advice promptly. Follow the doctor’s advice to rule out related diseases. After the diagnosis is confirmed, it should be treated strictly according to the doctor’s advice, and it is forbidden to change or stop the drug by itself.
