Heart attack or MI (Myocardial Infarction) usually occurs with a number of symptoms. These include chest pain, chest tightness, restlessness, and sudden loss of consciousness. Chest pain can sometimes go to the left neck or the left jaw, the pain can also spread to the inside of the left arm.
Seeing these symptoms, we quickly understand if someone has MI, and take the necessary action quickly. In such a situation, if any person is found at home or anywhere else, he should be taken to the nearest hospital immediately. If the hospital is far away, 4 tablets of aspirin should be given together. If possible, spray nitrocard or nitrosol under the tongue !!
All is well, but if something happens when the patient does not understand anything about the heart attack, but a heart attack can suddenly become a very bad condition and even death!
This is not impossible !! – Silent MI or Silent Heart Attack is called such a condition!
Why Silent? – Because the patient can’t understand anything at this time, and even if he can, he doesn’t pay much attention to what he thinks is very little or normal pain!
Could it be everyone ??
No! This is usually seen in patients with diabetes.
But can this happen to any diabetic patient?
No, not at all. This is usually the case for those who have various complications for diabetes in the body!
Why is that?
Due to diabetic neuropathy, the body’s senses are greatly reduced, so even if there is severe pain during a heart attack, people do not understand it easily.
Treatment – There is no difference between a normal heart attack and a silent heart attack.
It is very important to be aware – it is very important to control diabetes to stay away from silent MI.
What to do:
The complication of diabetes that will be created in the body should be careful at all times
Must be under the supervision of a regular medical specialist or diabetologist
If there is a slight pain in the chest or you feel restless (which is not hypoglycemia) you need to go to the hospital immediately!
