Heart attack symptoms: Signs of the deadly condition ‘women should never ignore’

A HEART attack doesn't always involve a breathtaking jibe in the chest and, even if it does, some people may brush past the pain as something insignificant. Take notice of your bodily sensations; it could indicate a heart attack.

RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI[1] major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...

Abstract Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), also known as stress cardiomyopathy, is a type of acute heart failure syndrome triggered by intense psychological or physiological stress. TTS typically manifests as acute chest pain, dyspnea or syncope that mimics an acute myocardial infarction but does not involve coronary artery obstruction. The current understanding of the pathogenesis of TTS suggests that sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation plays a central role. Specifically, stress can activate the SNS and lead to the over-release of catecholamine, which have toxic effects on myocardial tissue when present at excess...

Stress caused by uncertainty can be paralyzing. The information we are getting about the coronavirus seems to be changing by the hour — creating unprecedented uncertainty. There is a good reason your nerves are jangle, or you are feeling unsettled or anxious. Uncertainty is perceived as unsafe and potentially painful. Whether the situation is predictably positive or predictably negative, your brain prefers something familiar to something unfamiliar. Under stress, our brains depend on instinct rather than rational thought because the part of the brain responsible for critical thinking is busy dealing with the psycholo...

While at work, one my partners showed me this ECG of a 50-something woman with abdominal pain associated with alcohol withdrawal and alcoholic ketoacidosis.  There was no reported chest pain or SOB.What do you think?I said it " looks like takotsubo.  Electrolytes might contribute.  Are they back yet? (they were not).  I do not think this is a coronary event. "He asked why.I responded: " bizarre T-waves, with T-wave inversion and extremely long QT.  The computer measures the QT at 506 ms, but it really is more like 560-580 ms, with a QTc of 600-620 ms.  This is not at all typical...

CONCLUSIONS: The well-documented risk factors are age, history of diabetes mellitus and renal failure, multivessel coronary artery disease on angiography and time from pain onset to first medical contact. The less conventional risk predictors are total amount of contrast agent administered during invasive procedures and patient radiation exposure during the procedures.

Abstract Worldwide, a myocardial infarction (MI) is an important cause of death. Acute MI occurs most commonly at an older age. However, the incidence of acute MI in adolescents is increasing. This is partly due to an increase in cardiovascular risk factors (e.g. smoking, unhealthy diet), which might lead to premature atherosclerosis. However, several non-atherosclerotic causes of MI in adolescents are also described in the literature, such as vascular spasm due to the use of cocaine. We may assume that acute MI is not considered to be the most likely cause of chest pain in adolescents. Therefore, the risk of...
