Xinhua News Agency, Hefei, November 26 (Reporters Bao Xiaojing, Lin Miaomiao) After Double Eleven, the Hefei courier Xiao Zhang is very busy. He originally thought he was just catching a cold, but he didn’t expect to suffer. Viral myocarditis combined with heart failure, after the doctor’s all-out rescue, the crisis turned into peace-November 26 is the National Heart Failure Day, experts suggest that heart failure is not a “patent” of the elderly, and there has been a trend of youthfulness in recent years. Respiratory diseases such as colds occur frequently in autumn and winter, and can also become the “culprit” of heart failure.
Cheng Jinglin, director of the Department of Emergency Medicine of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, said that there have been many cases of patients like Xiao Zhang in recent years, mainly young white-collar workers who work overtime and stay up late or over-fatigued students. Malignant arrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, high-III degree atrioventricular block and other symptoms have been common in young patients, and these can induce heart failure. For some genetically susceptible people, if the cold persists, it can cause dilated cardiomyopathy and eventually lead to heart failure. Among the middle-aged and elderly people, those with cardiovascular disease should prevent colds. Respiratory and lung infections caused by aggravated colds may induce more serious problems such as heart failure.
According to Zhang Jian, director of the Heart Failure Center of Fuwai Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, there are many heart failure patients in my country, the number exceeds 10 million, which is very harmful, but many people do not understand heart failure. Heart failure will occur in the terminal stage of various types of heart diseases, and the rate of death and disability is very high. As the terminal stage of the development of various types of heart diseases, heart failure can be caused by a variety of causes. Its occurrence often requires a process. Once it occurs, it is very difficult for treatment to reverse. Therefore, we must pay special attention to the “emergent” red flags. Factors that can overload the heart and cause myocardial damage can cause heart failure. People with basic diseases such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, diabetes, pulmonary heart disease, and myocarditis are at high risk of heart failure. Some young people may eventually develop heart failure due to stress, overwork, or even a cold.
Cheng Jinglin said that young people staying up late to work, study, play mobile phones, and play games in Internet cafes all night, these bad habits will lead to excessive fatigue, and some people have a cold or diarrhea after they are young and do not have a good rest. Will lead to “lack of energy.”
Zhang Jian introduced that there are two types of heart failure. Acute heart failure like “storms and rains”, patients will suddenly experience severe discomfort; there are many chronic heart failures, which can manifest as decreased energy and physical strength in the early stage, such as It used to be effortless to climb stairs, but now the upper two floors are “out of breath”, and there may also be symptoms such as memory loss, night insomnia, and loss of appetite. “Once you experience the typical symptoms of heart failure such as difficulty breathing after activities and holding your breath at night, you should go to the hospital in time.”
