Fifth note of musical scaleCPR required in the last 10 minutes
Medanta’s Managing Director Dr. Naresh Trehan told TV 9 that the first few minutes are very important for a person with cardiac arrest. Dr Trehan said, “Data says that if someone present at the scene gives cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) within the first 5-10 minutes, then the chances of that person surviving a cardiac attack are 40 to 50 percent. increases. CPR can help keep the person alive until help arrives and can do heart defibrillation. If this is not done within the first 10 minutes, the chances of survival are very low – only 10 percent. This is because the brain gets injured and there is no revival.”
Dr Trehan said if a person reaches the hospital with some blood circulation in the brain though which is not easily detectable, and if his blood pressure is 40-50 and the heart is beating even if the pulse is not running properly If so, then the chances of survival of such a person increase.
Dr Trehan said, “But if a person has had a cardiac arrest to the level of fibrillation, then CPR can keep the person alive for 20-30 minutes till professional help arrives. CPR and Basic Life Support (BLS) are life saving measures. That’s why it is very important for civic agencies like police, Rotary Club and RWA to learn BLS.”
300 mg aspirin dissolved in water can be of great help
Dr. Trehan also told that if a person is having chest pain or he is not feeling well, then he is asked to drink 300 mg aspirin dissolved in half a glass of water so that it gets absorbed quickly in the body. . This can help a lot. “The clot will not proceed in this case. In some cases, it can even dissolve the clot. Sorbitrate can also help. You place the 5 mg tablet under the tongue of a person complaining of chest pain (so that it is absorbed more quickly). The tablet dilates the arteries so that some blood can flow.
But if the person has already suffered cardiac arrest then the medicine cannot be given. It can be dangerous if done by non-professionals, he added. Dr Trehan said, “The public should only do CPR – massage the heart.
Hypoxia can cause cardiac arrest
He also said that usually lung problems do not cause heart attacks unless there is hypoxia (not enough oxygen available to the lungs). Dr Trehan said, “But if a person has hypoxia then he can get cardiac arrest and brain injury. But it doesn’t happen suddenly. However, in people who have clots in their legs – deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and sudden death can occur if large clots rupture and choke into the lungs;
But usually this happens very rarely. It is the same with liver disease; These are slow health problems that rarely lead to sudden death. Sudden death is simply caused by arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat) which may occur due to tiredness, blockage in the arteries and/or your blood pressure rising. High BP can damage the arteries of the heart, which can lead to sudden death.
