ICCPRA congratulates the successful holding of the 23rd World Heart Day
Heart disease is the number one killer that threatens human life and health. To remind people to pay attention, the World Heart Federation has established an annual “World Heart Day”. September 24, 2000 is the first one; after that, the last Sunday of September every year is “World Heart Day”. Yesterday was the 23rd World Heart Day. ICCPRA (International Community CPR Alliance) actively participated in World Heart Day and contributed to people’s heart health.
According to the statistics of the National Cardiovascular Center of China, the number of sudden cardiac deaths in China is as high as 550,000 every year, and an average of 1,500 people die of cardiac arrest every day and about 87% of the accidents happened outside the hospital.
Recently a 21-year-old man, Mr. Pu, had an acute myocardial infarction because he stayed up late for a long time, also has bad habits like smoking and drinking, and have a high sugar diet. During the operation, the doctor found that many blood clots caused blood vessel blockage. A total of 10 thrombi were aspirated.
According to experts, cardiovascular disease in young people is often more and more deadly, because the collateral circulation of young people has not been fully established. Now that Mr. pu must consider installing a bracket and needs to avoid strenuous exercise. This reminds us once again that young people must change their irregular work and rest on weekdays, and don’t waste their bodies just because they are still young.
Experts said that sudden death is unexpected in many cases. If the warning symptoms can be detected in advance, early intervention may save lives. If you have important warning symptoms of sudden cardiac death such as syncope or convulsions, you should go to the hospital immediately. If you experience fatigue, forgetfulness, headache, muscle pain, chest tightness, difficulty concentrating, depression, insomnia, etc., you should also be alert to the occurrence of sudden death. At this time, you should immediately stop the heavy work, adjust your physical and mental state, and never take chances.
Permanent damage to brain tissue occurs if cardiac arrest lasts more than 4 minutes. To this end, the experts emphasized that within 1 minute after sudden death, immediate implementation of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and the use of an AED to carry out first aid, the rescue success rate can reach 90%; the success rate for every 1-minute delay If it is more than 10 minutes before the rescue begins, the mortality rate of the patient is almost 100% (source: Central Radio Network).
Angina pectoris and myocardial infarction are manifestations of the development of coronary heart disease to different stages or degrees. Angina pectoris is an important symptom of coronary heart disease aggravation, and myocardial infarction is the most serious consequence of coronary heart disease. The occurrence of common clinical stable angina pectoris usually has clear incentives, such as fatigue, exertion, emotional agitation, overeating, cold and other stimuli. Angina attacks more frequently and lasts longer at night, and if left untreated, it is more likely to develop into acute myocardial infarction, with more serious consequences.
Therefore, whether it is to popularize CPR and AED first aid techniques for community residents, or to share the basic knowledge of the heart with children, it has special practical value and practical significance. The ICCPRA First Aid Alliance will do its best to popularize the correct first aid knowledge such as CPR and First Aid for more community residents and friends.
