This is the first sign of infarction, regardless of age. It's crucial that you get to the doctor as soon as possible
In Romania, cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death. More than 140,000 Romanians die annually because of heart problems, or almost 60% of all deaths.
Serious heart problems could be avoided if I get to a doctor for periodic checks. It is also very important to recognize early symptoms of cardiovascular disease, especially those that put our lives at risk, such as myocardial infarction.
The first sign of heart attack is severe chest pain, regardless of age. If the pain does not pass in a minute and if it gets worse and perspiration occurs, palpitations should call for salvation immediately. "Women do not perceive chest pain as a chest pain and unfortunately they come to the hospital and say they get tired and hold their hands, that fatigue may be a heart attack and sometimes they come too late because they perceive fatigue as something ordinary, "explained cardiologist Oren Iancovici.
The sooner the patient gets to the hospital, the better his survival chances are. In major cities, people usually arrive at the hospital in a timely manner, the problem is in the country, where there are few doctors and hospitals. "The patient must reach the hospital within the first 6-9 hours after the infarction, after 9 hours a portion of the heart muscle begins to necroze and the chances of recovery are small," the doctor added.
After an infarction, the patient leaves home with a handful of medications that he has to take daily, all his life.
