There are typically four different types of heart attacks: acute coronary syndrome (ACS), ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), and on-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEM). as well as “cardiac spasm” or “unstable angina.”

But researchers from the University of Alberta in Canada say they have found a new kind of heart attack that affects women more than men at first.

Myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries is a novel form of heart attack, according to research reported in the medical journal “International Journal of Cardiology” . According to the report, this new type of heart attack affects more women than it used to, but what’s even more concerning is that medical professionals don’t classify it as a heart attack.

The report claims that because this type of heart attack lacks the other symptoms that precede a heart attack, like damage to an artery that supplies blood to the heart, medical professionals do not classify it as a heart attack.

The report claims that this kind of heart attack is frequently brought on by tiny, extremely thin glands that are found in the blood vessels that supply the heart. According to a research report, 60% of patients experiencing this type of heart attack do not receive any medication from their doctors, who instead send them home after claiming they do not have heart disease.

The report says that experts don’t call this kind of heart attack a heart attack because the symptoms are different. The report didn’t say how dangerous this new kind of heart attack is compared to others or how many people die from it each year around the world.


Rapid increase in cases of heart attacks among young people

Heart disease, which is usually thought to only affect older people, is becoming more common among young people today, which goes against what most people think.

According to a Harvard University report, American health experts are worried that this trend is more common among young people between the ages of 20 and 40.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that every 34 seconds, a person in the US dies of heart disease.

A study that came out on March 5 and was presented at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions found that most young Americans have heart disease risk factors like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and smoking. By the way, the information for this study came from 2009 to March 2020.

According to another study, older adults who take fewer than 2,000 steps a day are three times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke than those who take 4,500 steps a day.

Heart attack rates are on the rise in India.

24 year-old Vishal died when he passed out while working out in the gym. Sachin, an 18-year-old engineering student, died when he passed out in class.

According to the doctors, these two youths died due to a heart attack.

According to the Indian report , the data shows that heart disease is increasing day by day among the youth in India.

A report in the Times of India said that the number of sudden cardiac arrests in people who seem to be healthy has gone up by 10 to 15% in some hospitals.

Causes of a weak heart

According to the experts, there can be many reasons for a heart attack, but most of the reasons given below are related to the increasing number of heart diseases.

1. smoking

2. Consuming fatty foods

3. Diabetes

4. Cholesterol increases

5. High blood pressure

6. Overweight or obesity

When it comes to measures to prevent heart disease, we need to lead a healthy life. Regular exercise, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and reducing pollution can be appropriate changes.

Apart from this, avoiding alcohol, controlling cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes reduce the chances of a heart attack.

Insomnia can make women heart patients

A study of 1.2 million people has shown that insomnia can cause heart disease, including a heart attack.

According to a new study, insomnia and less than five hours of sleep per day can cause heart disease, but its effect can be more on women.

A lengthy study published in the journal Clinical Cardiology took data from 1.2 million people from the United States, Norway, Germany, Taiwan and China. The majority (96%) had no heart disease and 43% of the women in the study.

Then it was found that 13 percent of the participants had some form of insomnia. That is, they had three big signs that they were having difficulty sleeping, it was not possible to maintain continuous deep sleep and they were getting up early and were not able to sleep again.

For several years, all participants were followed up, 2406 people with insomnia for 9 years and 12398 people who slept properly had low or severe heart attacks. According to experts, if you sleep five hours or less daily, the risk of a heart attack can increase by 1.56 (a little more than two times) compared to other people. But women were more involved, which showed that restlessness and short time of sleep can make women heart patients.

Professor Yamina Din of the University of Alexandria, Egypt, who was involved in the study, said that earlier we did not consider insomnia a disease, but new research is causing many diseases, including blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. In the new context, sleep needs to be given a lot of importance.

Experts have suggested that it is important to set a time for sleep. Keep the room dark, noise-free and cold while sleeping. Do not eat enough food two to three hours before sleeping, otherwise sleep can be affected. Avoid mobile phones and tablets while sleeping.

A biogel that repairs damage caused by heart attacks

Scientists have made a new bio-gel that can be injected into a patient’s veins to repair the damage done by a heart attack. The gel starts to work as soon as it gets into the patient.

A gel that repairs damage caused by heart attack

This group of researchers at the University of California, San Diego, has been trying to make this biomaterial for more than ten years.

In 2012, scientists made the hydrogel and then tested it on pigs. When the liquid went into the pigs’ bodies, it formed a mesh of fibers. Later, scientists made a gel that could be injected into the body by taking out the bigger pieces from the hydrogel and adding water to slow down the flow.

When this gel gets into the body, it fills in the gaps and speeds up the process of the blood vessels getting fixed.

The idea worked when it was tried out on mice and pigs. In tests, the gel fixed damage to the heart and reduced inflammation. Now, scientists want to test the gel on humans in the next year or two.

Karen Christman, a bioengineer at the university, said that the team of researchers thought the gel could be used right away to save and rebuild some tissue after a heart attack. In the December 29 issue of Nature Biomedical Engineering, the team talked about their research.

Changes in sleep times can lead to increased heart disease

A recent but lengthy study by US scientists has found that changes in sleep duration and timing by middle and older people increase their chances of developing fatty disease in the arteries, including heart disease.

According to research, changing sleep times and duration for two hours a week by middle- and middle-aged people increases their chances of developing atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis, although not a disease, is a serious problem that causes other dangerous diseases, including heart disease and stroke.

In atherosclerosis, the arteries of a person become greasy, due to which the arteries are not able to transmit blood properly to different parts of the body and usually in the above condition, blood is not transmitted properly to the internal organs within the boundaries of the heart, neck, brain and chest, which sometimes leads to sudden death.

According to the research published in the medical journal Jaha, American experts studied 2030 people to find out the change in sleep duration and timing with atherosclerosis.

During the study, the experts tied a bandage in the hands of all the volunteers, which monitored their sleep duration, times and breathing, heart rate and blood pressure during sleep.

Half of the volunteers in the study were women, aged between 45 and 84, and the average age of the volunteers was 69 years.

After the research, the experts came to the conclusions after checking the changes during sleep in all the volunteers, including their sleep duration and times.

The results showed that changes in sleep duration and timing were directly related to atherosclerosis.

Experts noted that people who changed sleep times for up to two hours a week had a clear chance of developing atherosclerosis.

Similarly, people who changed the duration and timing of sleep by one and a half hours a week were also likely to increase atherosclerosis.

According to experts, changing the duration and timing of sleep for half an hour a week does not increase the chances of atherosclerosis.

The experts also called for more research to find a link between sleep duration and time with atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke.

Previous research has proved that lack of sleep increases the risk of serious diseases like blood pressure and diabetes.

Excessive use of Paracetamol can cause heart attack

Paracetamol is a commonly used painkiller, kept in every home in Pakistan and India for emergency use, but now Scottish experts have issued a stern warning about its use. 

According to The Sun, experts have warned that excessive use of this pill is increasing the risk of heart attack in people. The study found that paracetamol increased the risk of heart attack in a quarter of British citizens.

Experts at the University of Edinburgh say that the excessive and long term use of paracetamol may cause heart attack. 

People who take 2 tablets of paracetamol daily have a 20% increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke. 

Experts have also warned doctors that they should prescribe paracetamol to their patients for a very short time and in very small amounts. 

Dr. Ian McCann-Tire, head of the research team, said that people who occasionally use paracetamol for headaches or fevers do not find it harmful. However, people should avoid using it on a daily basis. 

New Research Findings : What are the effects of eating one egg daily on the body?

If you want to avoid heart disease, including heart attack and stroke, diabetes type 2, then make it a habit to eat eggs.

This was revealed in a new medical study.

Research published in the journal Nutrition states that eating 5 or more eggs per week helps to avoid heart disease.

The study also found that people who eat more eggs also have a lower risk of getting affected by type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

For this research, experts examined the data of a study that started in 1971 and involved more than 5,000 people.

Their health was assessed once every four years to see if they were suffering from heart disease or any other disease.

Each time during the medical examination, these people were filled out questionnaires and a record of egg-eating habits was also compiled.

After analyzing the data, the researchers discovered that eating 5 or more eggs per week did not have any negative effects on blood sugar or blood pressure.

In fact, they discovered that eating eggs in moderation improved blood sugar levels, while reducing the risk of high blood sugar and type 2 diabetes.

According to the researchers, such people also have low blood pressure levels and a lower risk of suffering from high blood pressure, which helps to avoid heart disease.

Researchers said that the results prove that the use of eggs does not have an effect on blood sugar or blood pressure, but making them a part of the diet protects against various diseases.

Risk of heart attack is high in winter, experts say

According to experts, the temperature outside the body has an inverse relationship with blood pressure.

In winter, there are many health complications, such as colds, sore throats, flu and other seasonal diseases, but the most important and dangerous case is heart disease.

In fact, as the temperature drops, the blood vessels narrow, which increases the risk of stroke or heart attack.

According to experts, due to this narrowing of the arteries in winter, the drains that deliver blood to the heart muscles also shrink, due to which there is severe pain in the chest, which is the trigger of heart attack or heart disease.

According to a new study, heart attack and heart disease-related problems are more common in winter, especially in the early morning when cold is felt more.

The question arises that why heart disease problems arise more in winter. In this regard, experts say that in winter, the heart has to pump the same amount of blood as is usually done, but it requires more and harder work, which results in problems like heart attack due to increased blood pressure and narrowing of arteries.

According to experts, the temperature outside the body has an inverse relationship with blood pressure, due to which the heart has to work harder to pump blood due to the narrowing of the arteries in winter.

Blood has to be transported far and wide to body parts such as the skin, legs and other organs. Apart from this, another problem in cold weather is blood clotting and all of them together cause risk.
