The arrival of the hot summer brings a lot of burden to the heart. Chinese medicine believes that "heat is easy to hurt the qi" and "heat is easy to enter the heart". At this time, symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, and fainting are particularly likely to occur. Due to a lot of sweating in summer and relatively thick blood, this will aggravate the cardiac ischemia and hypoxia response of patients with arrhythmia, leading to a high incidence of arrhythmia. In addition, hot weather is easy to make people irritable, irritable, and emotional. If you do not control your emotions, it is very easy to induce arrhythmia. In addition, the length of the day and night in summer will reduce the sleep time at night, and the quality of sleep will be greatly reduced. One of the causes of recurrence of abnormalities. Therefore, in summer, we must know how to care for the heart. The following four "heart care" points are recommended.
Ensure adequate sleep
lying prone is the most unfavorable sleeping position, because prone will compress the heart and lungs and affect breathing. Patients with arrhythmia and heart disease patients should adopt a sleeping position lying on the right side and keep the body naturally flexed.Posture is conducive to the return of blood to reduce the burden on the heart. If there is chest tightness and difficulty breathing, you can adopt a semi-recumbent position or a 30-degree inclined position to reduce the occurrence of arrhythmia. It is not advisable to watch exciting or exciting games or programs before going to bed, and avoid stimulating beverages such as tea and coffee.
Avoid strenuous exercise
because During strenuous exercise, the burden on the heart is greatly increased, making the heart unable to withstand sudden stimuli, aggravating arrhythmia or heart failure, and even causing cerebrovascular disease or sudden death. Patients with arrhythmia should adhere to the principle of combining movement and static. Exercises suitable for patients with arrhythmia include: walking, jogging, Tai Chi, and health exercises. You should feel good during exercise, without dizziness, chest tightness, chest pain, panic, shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, etc. If the above-mentioned discomfort occurs, you should stop exercising immediately.
You can drink more soup and porridge, such as lotus leaf porridge, chrysanthemum porridge, etc., which can not only add water, but also relieve heat and summer.
inWhen the arrhythmia is not easy to catch, the patient himself can best find the problem. Some arrhythmias often have aura symptoms. If they can be detected and taken in time, they can reduce or even avoid recurring arrhythmia. Patients with atrial fibrillation often have aura signs or prodromal symptoms, such as heart palpitations, and increased "pulse deficiency" when touching the pulse. At this time, rest early and take Valium tablets orally can prevent problems. Some patients find out a set of self-control methods for their own arrhythmia treatment, and use past experience to control the arrhythmia when it occurs. For example, patients with "paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia" can stimulate the throat immediately after the attack to cause nausea and vomiting, or take deep breathing actions, or press the eyeballs to stimulate the vagus nerve and slow the heart rate, and it can also be converted immediately.
