Authoritative reminder: The heart has 4 invisible natural enemies, but also need to avoid (including summer secrets)
What is the heart most afraid of?
Smoking, drinking, staying up late, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood lipids. This is the “mainly behind the scenes” of crimes that were previously widely considered.
On May 21st, the European Heart Journal article summarized some of the unexpected heart threats.
Yang Xueli, deputy director of the Department of Epidemiology, Fuwai Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, said that this study is to remind people not to ignore the “invisible natural enemies” that threaten heart health. Usually pay more attention to it and pay attention to “avoidance.”
4 invisible enemies of the heart (1) The pain that can be relieved in a short period of chronic pain is called “acute pain”, accompanied by toothache, trauma, surgery, childbirth, etc., as opposed to chronic pain, which is manifested by pain continuing to exceed4 weeks.
Migraine, low back pain, joint pain, gout, etc., can lead to chronic pain. In order to relieve, generally choose some painkillers, not steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, and even opioids.
The American Heart Association’s team of experts has warned that long-term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for chronic pain increases the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke; a study published in the December 2010 issue of the Internal Medicine Literature found that opioidsThe risk of heart disease for patients is higher than for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Especially for smokers and obese people, the degree of damage to the heart caused by taking painkillers.
Avoiding methods: If you have chronic pain, you should go to the hospital to receive professional medication advice in time. It is best not to abuse over-the-counter painkillers.
(2) If the temperature is too high or too low, the heart will be affected by high temperature and low temperature, and the influence of low temperature.
High temperature causes the body’s metabolism to accelerate, the amount of oxygen carried in the blood will be reduced, the heart load will increase, and the blood supply to the heart and brain will be insufficient. In addition, the body will sweat a lot, and the blood concentration will easily lead to increased blood viscosity, thrombosis and embolism.Atherosclerotic plaque may eventually lead to coronary heart disease or myocardial infarction.
People with diabetes and hyperlipidemia are more sensitive to high temperatures.
The effect of low temperature on the body is mainly caused by vasoconstriction, increased sympathetic excitability, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, and increased burden on the heart. At this time, the heart muscle is easily contracted, hypoxia, angina pectoris, and myocardial infarction.
In addition, platelet aggregation and increased blood viscosity in cold conditions can also lead to the formation of blood clots and plaques, which is also an important cause of myocardial infarction.
Avoiding methods: Usually pay more attention to the impact of high temperature on the body, we must know the cold, especially in the weather with low temperature or high temperature warning, avoid long-term expectation in the outdoors.
(3) Air pollution Research data from Europe show that the annual air pollution will directly or indirectly cause 79 deaths in Europe, of which 48%?
80% is cardiovascular death.
Studies abroad have also shown that the more serious the air pollution, the more significant the deterioration of the carotid intima, which is an important cause of heart disease.
Researchers at the University of Hasselt in Belgium believe that whether driving, cycling or walking to work, as long as the vehicle is intensive, it will increase the risk of accidents.
Among them, the cyclists are the most dangerous, because these people absorb the most exhaust gas, they also need to spend some physical strength on the bicycle, which is easy to cause insufficient blood supply.
In fact, air pollution will increase the risk of congenital heart disease in high blood pressure.
Avoiding methods: It is best for people with high cardiovascular risk to avoid traffic peaks. When going out in bad weather, it is best to wear a mask. At home, pay attention to ventilation every day to reduce indoor air pollution.
(4) Sleep time is too long or too short. Europe is over 11 in 21 countries.
An epidemiological survey of 60,000 people found that the risk of cardiovascular events increased as the total sleep time was greater than 8 hours and less than 6 hours per day.
The study found that with 7 hours of sleep per night, 9 hours per night, there were more calcified plaques in the coronary arteries and lower extremity arterial wall; if the lack of sleep (less than 6 hours) lasted 5 days, humanCardiac function is diminished, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease, especially for those elderly whose blood pressure will rise at night, and the risk of lack of sleep.
China Southern Medical University reviewed and analyzed domestic related literature in 2018. The results also showed that sleep disorders, short or too long sleep time lead to the risk of coronary heart disease.
Avoiding method: The best sleep time is 6?
8 hours, if there is a long-term sleep disorder, you should go to the hospital for professional treatment, targeted medication, if it is psychological and mental problems insomnia, usually pay attention to adjust the mood.
Summer is sad, it is a secret to raise your heart to go to the fire!
Chinese medicine believes that “heart and summer gas should be accepted”, the heart’s yang is the most vigorous in the summer, so we must pay attention to the heart, so that our gods are clear and gas, to prevent the heart from endogenous.
