What is Stenocardia?
Stenocardia is shown by acute, severe retrosternal pain and feeling of discomfort in the breast which is explained by a violation of normal blood supply of certain heart departments. Now stenocardia is the leading symptom of coronary heart disease (CHD) connected with narrowing or blockage of vessels. Subjective feelings of patients with stenocardia are very various, but it is possible to allocate also some general symptoms, in particular: pressing a breast pain which is given on other sites of the body.
As a rule, the attack of stenocardia lasts no more than 5 minutes and passes how the person will take the corresponding medical preparations ordered via My Canadian Pharmacy or will simply have a rest. Now it is accepted to allocate two forms of the disease. Stable stenocardia is characterized by regular attacks lasting for many years. In most cases, it arises owing to the same physical activities and stops right after their elimination. In turn, unstable stenocardia doesn’t differ in a regularity of attacks, but this form is more dangerous as symptoms of the disease are shown more strongly and often lead to the lethal outcome.
In most cases, these manifestations will be quite enough. It is only possible to add that stenocardia also proves: increase of arterial pressure; pallor of integuments; perspiration; fluctuations of cardiac rhythm; causeless sensation of fear and emotional frustration However, lack of these symptoms doesn’t mean at all absence of stenocardia therefore the leading role at diagnosis of disease still belongs to the doctor who has to pass the weighed, reasonable decision on the basis of inspection of the patient and clinical picture of illness.
One more important point is that in recent years the so-called rest stenocardia is even more often diagnosed for people with heart diseases. If stenocardia of tension is characterized by pains after physical activities, the quiet form arises irrespective of the intensity of efforts of the person and is, as a rule, shown at night. Symptoms thus coincide with symptoms of angina pectoris, that is the person feels asthma and shortage of air.
Finally some words about disease attacks. Stenocardia which treatment is carried out incorrectly promotes the development of myocardial infarction. Therefore, if the attack of stenocardia is tightened more than for 15 minutes, the patient needs to conduct the urgent electrocardiographic examination. It is best of all to make it in the next few hours after an attack as unstable stenocardia quickly progresses and can lead to a lethal outcome. To provide to the patient the correct leaving and timely diagnostic procedures, its hospitalization in profile clinic is desirable.
