Do You Know The Difference Between A Heart Attack And Cardiac Arrest? 

As I read this Health eTalk article to which I subscribe, I thought: it is straight forward, to express my thoughts and important enough to share.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

There are ways to prevent the clogging of arteries and that is in the foods we consume and lifestyle we choose.

I am often concerned for instance when I hear about young children having heart problems. Fast foods, fried and basically unhealthy eating habits I believe are some contributing factors.

But let's face it, and I dare to state that parents are sometimes lazy (not all) and simply give them what they crave rather than encouraging and providing healthy foods and eating habits. As a parent, from the early stages and before they become exposed to the hype and ads, you teach by example. You eat the right foods and your children eat what you eat educating them along the way. They are smart enough to understand why they shouldn't want to eat certain foods, following the crowd.

Especially these days more and more people are becoming health conscious and as a parent you owe it to your children to ensure they develop healthy eating habits. Your responsibility is to ensure the right combination of foods, fruits and vegetables, until they are old enough to do as they please. You would then not have to worry because as old people used to say: "Teach a child in the way he should grow and when he grows old he will never depart from it."


There is so much more to all of this but remember you play a part whether it is your life or your child's. I have seen evidence where someone had a choice of surgery, limited time and drastically chose the alternative...going green, avoiding certain foods and completely reversing her situation, where a video of the before and after was shown by the doctor who gave the choice.

 

So what is the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest?

The following is an article in Health eTalk by Victor Marchione, M.D. which explains for a better understanding.

"You've heard of a heart attack and you probably have a good understanding of what that is. You may have even heard of cardiac arrest. You know that these two events are serious and frankly should be avoided as best as possible.


Although both events occur to the heart, they are quite different. So, let us help you have a better understanding of these cardiovascular events by revealing the differences between a heart attack and cardiac arrest.


Heart Attack versus Cardiac Arrest

A heart attack occurs when a part of the heart becomes damaged because of inadequate blood flow. This commonly occurs due to a blockage in the specified area of the heart. Common causes of blockages result from cholesterol and plaque build up in the arteries.


Cardiac arrest, on the other hand, refers to the electrical aspect of the heart. When there is an electrical malfunction of the heart, it is known as cardiac arrest. In cardiac arrest, the heart may be beating irregularly, erratically, or not at all. In this case, oxygenated blood can't get to the other vital areas of the body, which can cause a person to pass out almost instantly.

Although a heart attack can lead to cardiac arrest, the majority do not.


Damage caused by heart attacks and cardiac arrest is possible but can vary. To determine the extent of the damage an echocardiogram is used – an ultrasound for the heart. The severity of the heart attack will determine how much lasting damage there is.


In either case, it's incredibly important to call emergency personnel immediately if you suspect someone is having a heart attack or going into cardiac arrest. The more time that passes without proper treatment, the worse the outcome can be.


Common heart attack symptoms include uncomfortable pressure or tightening of the chest, pain or uncomfortableness of the arm, back, or jaw, shortness of breath, sudden nausea or vomiting, lightheadedness or dizziness, and unusual fatigue.
Cardiac arrest signs include sudden unresponsiveness and changes in breathing. It's important that CPR is administered continuously until emergency persons arrive."

I trust that this provides enough information for you to keep close tabs on your health issues.

To Your Good Health,



Cosmos Parris
