What Is Heart Attack/ Myocardial infarction

Myocardial infarction (MI) is commonly referred to as a heart attack. It is one of the biggest causes of unexpected death and is often discussed in the media. It is possible to treat a heart attack and prevent death if managed at the right time, which is why there is a lot of emphasis on educating the public on symptoms of heart attack.

An MI occurs when there is decreased blood flow to the heart. This usually occurs because of a blockage in one of the blood vessels supplying the heart. If the blood supply is decreased, it causes injury to the heart's muscle (myocardium).

The severity of a heart attack depends on which blood vessels are affected, how extensively the heart's muscle is injured, as well as on which of the heart's chambers are affected. If the ventricles (which contract and pump blood to the rest of the body) are affected, it has worse outcomes.

Death due to a heart attack is caused by cardiac arrest.

The first investigation done in chest pain is an ECG (Electrocardiogram). Leads are placed on the chest, and the electrical conduction of the heart is measured. Distinct patterns are suggestive of possible heart damage.

If heart damage is suspected, it is confirmed by blood tests that measure the heart enzymes in the blood. The blood tests done are called Creatine Kinase (CKMB), Troponin T and I, Myoglobin.

What Is Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure in common language, is a long term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. 

What Is Migraine

  • Migraine is a result of some abnormal activities in the brain that cause a severe headache. This is accompanied by over-sensitivity to light, sound or particular kind of smells. 

What Is Open angle glaucoma

Glaucoma is an ophthalmic term that refers to a variety of conditions cause degeneration of the nerve that supplies visual impulses from the retina to the optic centres in the brain. This nerve is called the optic nerve.

There is two main types of glaucoma namely narrow (closed) and wide (open) angle glaucoma. Wide angle glaucoma is the commonest form of glaucoma and is present in up to ninety percent of cases.  Up to 50 million people are affected by wide angle glaucoma worldwide.

The “angel” referred to in these conditions is the angle between the cornea and iris in the eye. The aqueous fluid of the eye drains through this angle. In wide angle glaucoma, the angle is open and not blocked, in contrast to closed angle glaucoma. Wide angle glaucoma causes a progressive decline in vision, often without any symptoms.

The eye has a specific pathway by which the aqueous humour (normal eye fluid) drains and circulates in the eye. Aqueous humour is produced by the ciliary processes around the lens of the eye. The humour is present between the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye, while vitreous humour fills the posterior chamber of the eye.

Aqueous humour is responsible for the intra-ocular pressure (IOP), and to give the eye its typical spherical shape. The humour also contains nutritional and immunological structures to assist the anterior structures of the eye in maintaining healthy functioning.

The ciliary processes continually produce aqueous fluid. Aqueous fluid exits the eye via a trabecular meshwork that is located between the lens and the cornea of the eye. From this meshwork, it enters a canal called Schlimm’s canal, and then enters the body’s bloodstream.

Any small effect on ciliary fluid production or outflow of fluid can have a large impact on the pressure in the eye. The balance of production versus outflow is an important aspect of the cause and treatment of glaucoma.

Diagnosis of glaucoma is made with ophthalmic examinations. Tonometry is used to measure the pressure in the eye. A slit lamp examination will show changes to the optic nerve on the retina, called cupping. Cupping is characteristic of nerve damage due to glaucoma. Gonioscopy is used to assess the angle where aqueous fluid drains between the iris and cornea. Visual field testing is done to determine the areas where vision is affected.

Wide-angle glaucoma will show an open angle between the cornea and iris on gonioscopy.

Symptoms Treated With BETAGEL G CREAM 20GM

What Are The Symptoms Of Heart Attack/ Myocardial infarction

A heart attack may present as chest pain (angina).

Symptoms of a heart attack may be atypical or typical. Other diseases may mimic the symptoms of a heart attack. It is important to have undiagnosed chest pain investigated by a doctor.

The typical symptoms of a heart attack are:

  • Acute onset, sudden, severe left sided chest pain (pain usually >7/10)
  • The pain typically lasts more than 20 minutes
  • The nature of the pain is usually compressive (imagine an elephant standing on your chest)
  • The pain may spread to the jaw, left or right arm or hand
  • You may experience numbness or altered sensation (paraesthesia) in your hands, chest, or jaw.
  • Accompanying symptoms include: Nausea and vomiting, dizziness, profuse sweating
  • An MI may present with atypical symptoms like abdominal pain, indigestion, and back pain.

What Are The Symptoms Of Hypertension

High blood pressure in itself usually does not cause symptoms, but long term high blood pressure is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, vision loss, stroke, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease.

What Are The Symptoms Of Migraine

  • Though not all the migraine pains are similar, few common symptoms are: moderate to severe throbbing pain in either side of the head, which increases during any physical activity, sweating, temperature change of the body, abdominal pain, nausea, pain in the eyes etc.. There may be sensitivity to noise, smell and light.    

What Are The Symptoms Of Open angle glaucoma

In contrast to narrow-angle glaucoma, wide-angle glaucoma may be asymptomatic until later stages of the disease, when the visual impairment is already advanced. Symptoms include:

  • Gradual decrease in vision over time
  • Peripheral vision affected before central vision
  • Painless vision loss
  • May go unnoticed by the patient until visual loss is quite severe

Causes of diseases where BETAGEL G CREAM 20GM is used

What Are The Causes Of Heart Attack/ Myocardial infarction

There are many reasons why the arteries in the heart may be damaged.

The commonest cause is atherosclerosis- hardening of the lining of blood vessels (endothelium), which may form clots or plaques, and eventually, over time may progress to block the blood vessels.

Smoking is a significant contributing factor to blood vessel damage as well as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Dyslipidemia (high cholesterol/abnormal blood "fat" levels)
  • Lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Genetic factors or a family history of heart disease
  • Illicit drug use- cocaine and other stimulants
  • Age- men over 45 years and women over 55 years
  • Ethnicity- MIs are more common in Caucasian and Indian populations.

People with a combination of the above factors are at highest risk of having a heart attack.

What Are The Causes Of Hypertension

  • Wrong life style, lack of physical activity
  • Eating disorders
  • Old age, over weight
  • Smoking
  • Too much of salt in diet, alcohol
  • Obesity 

What Are The Causes Of Migraine

Though real cause of migraine is still not known, possible causes could be:

  • Central nervous disorder
  • Genetic predispositions
  • Abnormalities in brain chemical or nerve pathways
  • Abnormalities in blood vessel system of brain, or vascular system.
  • Things which can trigger the attack of migraine are skipping meals, salty foods, junk foods, hormonal changes, sensory triggers like exposure to light, noise or certain kinds of smells.    

What Are The Causes Of Open angle glaucoma

The exact mechanism by which open angle glaucoma is caused is still uncertain. Ocular hypertension is thought to be the biggest reason. Ocular hypertension means there is increased pressure in the eye. The increased pressure leads to damage of the optic nerve due to direct pressure effects and possible ischaemia (reduced blood flow to the nerve). Wide angle glaucoma may also occur without the presence of raised ocular pressure, in about fifty percent of cases.

Wide angle glaucoma is caused by a reduced drainage of aqueous humour through the trabecular meshwork. This is thought to be due to damage of the meshwork.

Certain factors may predispose to wide-angle glaucoma. These include systemic hypertension, diabetes and previous trauma to the eye or head. Medications such as systemic corticosteroids and hypertensive medications may also affect the flow of aqueous fluid.

 Advanced age (above fifty years), family history (first-degree relative increases the chance by two to four times) and ethnicity (African Americans) are also associated risk factors for wide-angle glaucoma.

Worst Foods With BETAGEL G CREAM 20GM

What Are The Worst Foods For Heart Attack/ Myocardial infarction

  • High-fat food containing unsaturated fatty acids
  • If you suffer from high blood pressure avoid foods that contain a high salt content. If you are diabetic, make sure to follow a low-carbohydrate diet and to control your blood sugar.
