A heart attack is a shortness of breath caused by heart disease.
Myocardial infarction can be caused by myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease, congenital and acquired heart defects, hypertension, etc. It is believed that the cause of angina pectoris is the poor blood supply from the left ventricle of the heart to the aorta, which causes blood stagnation in the lungs and impaired gas exchange. Excess carbonic acid in the blood stimulates the respiratory center of the brain, resulting in severe heaving. Physical and mental stress also contribute to seizures.
Heart failure occurs more often at night, the patient may suddenly wake up from a feeling of lack of air. The fever worsens, there is a cough (with transparent frothy sputum), severe weakness, anxiety, cold, sticky sweat, the skin becomes ashen blue. In severe cases, the attack ends with swelling of the lungs.
Since heart failure is a life-threatening condition, it is necessary to immediately seek the help of an appropriate specialist. The patient should be seated comfortably (feet down), ventilate the room, give oxygen if possible and call an ambulance. With timely treatment, the outcome of the disease will be favorable.
Timely and regular treatment of the disease is essential, because otherwise it can turn into acute heart failure.
