Cardiac Treatments

Differentiating between a burning sensation in the chest due to heartburn or if it’s a persistent chest pain that needs immediate medical intervention is a dilemma often faced by most of us.  Nonetheless, these symptoms need immediate medical attention to rule out any serious concerns. 

Know When To Seek Medical Advice For Your Symptoms

Heartburn v.s. Heart Attack

Although severe heartburn and heart attack is difficult to tell apart, if you experience persistent chest pain then you need to seek immediate medical help. Heartburn is discomfort caused by digestive acid moving into the tube that carries food to the stomach. Heart attack  on the other hand involves sudden, crushing pain in the pain followed by difficulty in breathing. A cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops pumping blood around the body. It needs immediate medical intervention, failing which can result in fatality.

Issues in the heart valve can cause the blood to start flowing backwards through your heart. Narrowed or leaky heart valves can stop the heart from pumping blood effectively. When heart valves become damaged or diseased, they may not fully close or open. This makes it hard for the heart to pump blood regularly. When the heart valves are diseases or damaged, the heart pumps harder to keep enough blood moving in the body resulting in your heart muscles being overworked.Read More
