Tutoring your child’s homework? It can’t be left to the children. To protect the heart, we should learn to control our emotions

45 year old Mr. Liu, when tutoring children’s homework, because the children’s learning is not good, “lion roared” for some time. Suddenly feel chest pain, shortness of breath, so changed his wife “relay” to continue to coach children’s homework, but the child is still in a state of ignorance. So Mr. Liu, who was resting on one side, suddenly stood up and was ready to join the “battle group” again. As a result, he felt cramped in front of his chest and fainted in the dark. < / P > < p > after a night’s rest at home, Mr. Liu came to the hospital the next day. As a result, he fainted again in the hospital hall, convulsed, foamed and incontinent. After rescue by medical staff, Mr. Liu regained consciousness five minutes later. Cardiologist gave the diagnosis of “acute coronary syndrome”, also known as myocardial infarction. < / P > < p > Mr. Liu said that he had no chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, no smoking, no drinking, and no coronary heart disease. He was childish when he had myocardial infarction. Why do healthy people have myocardial infarction? The reason is that when the coronary artery has a serious spasm and contraction, the blood flow can also be interrupted, resulting in myocardial infarction. < / P > < p > myocardial infarction induced by coronary artery spasm is not an accidental situation. In the 1980s, autopsy of sudden death in the United States found that more than 10% of 264 people died of myocardial infarction, and no thrombosis was found in the infarcted blood vessels. So we put forward a view that when the coronary artery spasm lasts for more than 10 minutes, it may cause coronary artery occlusion, leading to myocardial infarction. < / P > < p > the change of human emotion may cause arterial spasm. For example, we all have experiences of rapid heartbeat when we are nervous and blushing when we are shy. This is because changes in mood affect the secretion of hormones in the body. People in tension, anger, fear and other emotional stimulation, will produce a strong sympathetic excitement, will release adrenaline, noradrenaline and other substances, these substances have a strong vasoconstrictive effect. < / P > < p > for example, when people are nervous, their hands and feet will feel cold. This is because these vasoconstrictors make the peripheral small arteries contract, the blood supply of the extremities becomes less, and the temperature of the hands and feet naturally decreases. If the mood changes too violently, it will release a large number of vasoconstrictors, which may directly induce coronary artery contraction and spasm, resulting in myocardial infarction. < / P > < p > for people with atherosclerosis, we should pay more attention to the dramatic change of mood, which is also an important factor leading to the rupture of atherosclerotic plaque. Atherosclerosis is not terrible, as long as the control of “three high”, smoking, obesity and other risk factors, it can delay or terminate the progression of plaque, without serious consequences. Moreover, the middle and low degree stenosis of arteries will not have a great impact on daily life. The beating of the heart and the normal fluctuation of blood pressure will not cause plaque rupture. < / P > < p > but violent emotional changes lead to arterial spasm for a long time, and the shear force is easy to cause plaque rupture. And broken plaque can activate platelet aggregation, form thrombus, cause cerebral infarction or myocardial infarction. Therefore, people with atherosclerosis, even if the degree of vascular stenosis is not large, should also control their emotions to avoid accidents. < / P > < p > Mr. Liu attributed the cause of his myocardial infarction to “being childish”, but in fact, it really can’t depend on children. As an adult, should learn to control their emotions, not excited, not impulsive, not angry. When you want to get angry, take three deep breaths and give yourself 10 seconds of “buffer time”. Life and death in an instant, life has everything, good tempered people will live longer. < / P > < p > the middle-aged and old people should pay attention to protect their heart. In addition to controlling their emotions, they should also combine work with rest, do not overwork, and do not stay up late. Older people can do moderate exercise within their ability, but avoid strenuous exercise. < / P > < p > to sum up, violent emotional changes can cause arterial spasm and induce myocardial infarction. All people should pay attention to control their emotions, especially those who have suffered from atherosclerosis, and don’t let themselves be “blocked” by emotions. I’m huazi, pharmacist.
