Awareness For Heart Attack

Interview with Dr. Ashwani Bansal by Pragathi

We often neglect the symptoms that are evident and force ourselves to carry on with our quotidian tasks, forgetting that these signs could be fatal. Self-care is something that we hate to consider, as we do not have time for such stuff. Glad are we that, Google gives us a solution to almost everything and nevertheless we tend to look for remedies shown online.

One of the common medical emergencies these days is a heart attack, which is the blockage caused by the clot that ceases the blood flow to the heart. This results in oxygen loss to the tissue, turning out to a loss of life. Symptoms play a major part in avoiding this medical emergency. But what can we do to eschew the situation as such?

First things first, let's make a checklist of what all to be taken care of and evaluate it as we go. These tips are specially included by Dr. Ashwani Bansal, the Cardiosurgeon, Indus international Hospital. 
1. Stop smoking. Yes, that's something we need to stop and ask people around us as well to do so.
Youngsters these days think it is style or swag to have a butt in hand and roam around. People, it's not good for your health even the cigarette box says so.
2. Follow a balanced diet and stay fit. This doesn't require much elaboration as we can differentiate what's good for our body and what's junk.
3. Weight loss is another factor that plays a major role in staying fit. Proper BMI (Body Mass Index) should be maintained.
4. Regular blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels have to be checked. There are numerous health camps organized for the employees. It's our responsibility to volunteer and to get a thorough check-up done.
5. Exercise, yes! That's something on our resolution every year but fail to follow it. Walking for 30 minutes also allay the muscles and joints.
6. Proper sleep, 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is needed to be able to get up with that zest and carry out our work.
7. Stress! Yes stressing at this point. We need to be happy and leave work-related stress at the workplace and spend some quality time with family.

We are educated about all this and still fall apart when it comes to medications and proper treatment at the right time. Prevention is better than cure and this proverb was not just stated without reason.
