Cardiac arrest – Wikipedia

Cardiac arrestSynonymsCardiopulmonary arrest, circulatory arrest, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), sudden cardiac death (SCD)[1]CPR being administered during a simulation of cardiac arrest.SpecialtyCardiologySymptomsLoss of consciousness, abnormal or no breathing[1][2]Usual onsetOlder age[3]CausesCoronary artery disease, major blood loss, lack of oxygen, very low potassium, heart failure[4]Diagnostic methodFinding no pulse[1]PreventionNot smoking, physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight[5]TreatmentCardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillation[6]PrognosisAverage survival 8%[7]Frequency13 per 10,000 people per year (outside hospital in the US)[8] Cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to effectively pump.[9] Symptoms include loss of consciousness and abnormal or absent breathing.[1][2] Some individuals may experience chest pain, shortness of breath, or nausea before cardiac arrest.[2] If not treated within minutes, it typically leads to death.[9] The most common cause of cardiac arrest is coronary artery disease.[4] Less common causes include major blood loss, lack of oxygen, very low potassium, heart failure, and intense physical exercise.[4] A number of inherited disorders may also increase the risk including long QT syndrome.[4] The initial heart rhythm is most often ventricular fibrillation.[4] The diagnosis is confirmed by finding no pulse.[1] While a cardiac arrest may be caused by heart attack or heart failure, these are not the same.[9] Prevention includes not smoking, physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.[5] Treatment for cardiac arrest includes immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and, if a shockable rhythm is present, defibrillation.[6] Among those who survive, targeted temperature management may improve outcomes.[10][11] An implantable cardiac defibrillator may be placed to reduce the chance of death from recurrence.[5] In the United States, cardiac arrest outside hospital occurs in about 13 per 10,000 people per year (326,000 cases).[8] In hospital cardiac arrest occurs in an additional 209,000.[8] Cardiac arrest becomes more common with age.[3] It affects males more often than females.[3] The percentage of people who survive with treatment is about 8%.[7] Many who survive have significant disability.[7] However, many American television programs have portrayed unrealistically high survival rates of 67%.[7] Cardiac arrest is preceded by no warning symptoms in approximately 50 percent of people.[12] For those who do experience symptoms, they will be non-specific, such as new or worsening chest pain, fatigue, blackouts, dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness and vomiting.[13] When cardiac arrest occurs, the most obvious sign of its occurrence will be the lack of a palpable pulse in the victim.

Parkinson’s Foundation: Better Lives. Together.

Posted: September 21, 2018 at 7:44 am

Our understanding of Parkinsons disease (PD) has evolved from the initial focus on motor symptoms to now include non-motor symptoms (such as, mood, fatigue, constipation) of the disease.People with PD who seek relief from their symptoms may decide to explore complementary therapies Therapies that you use in addition to your medications (not to replace them); examples include nutritional supplements, acupuncture and massage., which can support or complement traditional medicine.While there are many kinds of complementary medicine, this section focuses on herbs, vitamins and supplements. Although there is little conclusive scientific information on natural supplements, researchers are examining several substances to evaluate their effectiveness on slowing PD progression and managing its symptoms. Nutritional supplements are not regulated with the same approval method for prescription drugs Continue reading
