But when emergency services arrived at the gates of the university, administrators barred the male crew from treating her, a local newspaper claimed.
If you have diabetes , be sure to take your medications and check your blood glucose levels regularly. If you have a heart condition, work closely with your doctor and take your medication. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns about your risk of a heart attack.
Before I had my MRI scans, I told my primary care doctor that the pain seemed to be triggered by my period. He didn&rsquo t think this was relevant and ignored the comment. Later, when scans showed my discs were in place, the specialist said my pain was likely due to nerve inflammation just one of those painful things that someone with my history would likely suffer from time to time. Once again, his eyes flicked to the side and he waved his hands dismissively when I asked if it could be connected to my menstrual cycle.
Special x rays are taken while the dye is flowing through the coronary arteries. The dye lets your doctor study the flow of blood through the heart and blood vessels.
It&rsquo s time to talk about period pain. Every month, every woman you know who&rsquo s pre-menopause and post-puberty bleeds from their vagina. Periods are one of the most basic facts of life. Any squeamishness around the subject is both ridiculous and harmful, because too many women are suffering in silence, grimacing through the agony they experience with their periods.
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a group of signs and symptoms that are associated with insufficient blood flow to the heart. A heart attack differs from other forms of ACS in that the decreased blood flow persists, causing death of heart muscle cells. When someone is rushed to the emergency room, testing must be performed to determine whether or not a person's signs and symptoms (ACS) are due to a heart attack or to another cause.
In some cases, some of these symptoms may occur without chest pain (particularly in older individuals and in those with diabetes ).
A STEMI heart attack is caused when a blood clot suddenly forms, completely blocking an artery in the heart. This can result in damage that covers a large area of the heart and extends deep into the heart muscle. The priority in treating a STEMI heart attack is to open the artery quickly, saving as much heart muscle as possible. Treatment options include percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a term that encompasses both angioplasty and stenting clot-busting medication and coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).
Talk with your doctor about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, when you should call 9–6–6, and steps you can take while waiting for medical help to arrive.
