“A multifactorial disease is Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), or heart blockage disease. CAD is more of a lifestyle disorder, but often it is also rooted in family history. The key factors are high cholesterol, high triglyceride, tension, family background, high PB, consumption of tobacco and alcohol, high sugar levels, lack of exercise, obesity, low intakes of fibre, low consumption of antioxidants. Such individuals lead a life of high profile, which is often followed by mental pressure, said Dr Pawan Suri, Chief Cardiologist at SGL SuperSpeciality Hospital.
He added, “Stress causes many health issues that disrupt the hormonal balance of the body, which can lead to irritability, anger, behavioural and psychological changes, diabetes, high BP, etc. All of these contribute to factors that make a person prone to heart disease and heart attacks. Heredity plays a major part, too.”
Signs and Symptoms of Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Symptoms of a cardiac arrest and heart attack could mirror each other, but the main symptoms of a cardiac arrest are chest pain, loss of consciousness, no pulse. In some cases, there are chances that the patient may experience shortness of breath, dizziness, racing heartbeat some a little before cardiac arrest.
