What is the Treatment For a Heart Attack?

Years ago, my family had a Father's Day to remember. I am fortunately in that both of my parents are still alive and reliably healthy. In our family, we have always been rather observant about holidays and birthdays, and we make an effort to spend the family oriented together. One Father's Day as we were at my parents' place waiting for my mother to finish dressed as we were headed out to a nice brunch, my father started complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath. We immediately dialed "9-1-1" even though my father kept protesting that it was sure to be just indigestion or something.

Well pretty soon there were two EMTs running up the stairs to where my father sat red-faced; he was embarrassed for all the 'fuss' and the fact that he was not feeling the pain / pressure any longer. He told the lead EMT this as the man was listening to his heart with a stethoscope. The EMT told my father, "I would not worry about feeling embarrassed sir, I just came from a call where I had my hands in a man's chest trying to save him. to us, I would say that's a great day. " That completely put things in perspective for us.

It got me thinking, what could have been done if he had had a heart attack? What are some of the treatments for people mid-myocardial infarction? The studies have shown over the years have shown that immediate attention to a heart attack is key to the best possible exit to a heart attack. During the heart attack, the heart can stop alt (cardiac arrest) or beat out of synch (arrhythmia) but if EMTs are on the scene they can determine what course of treatments may be most immediately affective. This can include CPR or use of a defibrillator (the two handled shock machine we have all seen on any number of medical TV dramas) once the EMTs have determined what the patient is experiencing. Sometimes if a blood clot is considered to be part of the issue, the EMTs can administrator fast acting medicines to (hopefully) start to dissolve the clot. If the heart is sluggish or stopped, they may inject Epinephrine to kick start the heart (although, one would hope not in the same way Travolta administrated it in 'Pulp Fiction'!) The EMTs may administrator what is called CCR (cardiocerebral resuscitation) which consist of two minutes of continued chest compressions. Hopefully all or some of these can help when it comes time later on to determine what kind of more permanent solution one might have to use (bypass surgery, heart surgery, angioplasty, etc.)

Of course the hope is that we never have to experience an angina. Although there are some genetic disposition to them, we can always lessen our exposure to them through a good diet, rest, maintaining our weight, and exercise. If you do increase physical activity, one of the things they might consider is taking supplements that reduce the 'free radicals' that occurs when you exercise. Those are, essentially, waste products that occur when energy is expended red blood cells are oxidized. The elements that reduce this kind of damage are called 'Antioxidents'. One of the best naturally occurring antioxidants may, in fact, be Glutathione. Glutathione occurs naturally in the body, but you may benefit your body with an additional dietary supplement of the substance. If you are considering taking on some supplements to combat hypertension, you will certainly learn more about Glutathione and Glutathione enhancers like MAXGXL.
