What Can be Done to Treat a Heart Attack?
Heart disease and heart attacks are one of the most preventable health issues, but remain one of the most common causes of illness and death. If you are concerned about heart health, speak with your doctor about lifestyle changes you can make before heart disease becomes a serious issue. Changes as simple as exercising and diet alterations can save your life, but you need to act as soon as possible.
If your doctor has diagnosed you with heart disease or you are concerned about heart health as the result of a heart attack or other event, you still have a variety of treatment options. You and your doctor should work together to create a plan for heart health that helps your heart heal and prevents future problems.
Immediate treatment for a heart attack includes CPR and surgery. CPR is performed by people around you or by paramedics during a heart attack. CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and it can save a person’s life. The goal of treatment during a heart attack is to end the event and stabilize the patient. Once that is done, action can be taken to control future symptoms and if possible, provide a cure.
There are several types of surgery used to treat heart attack and heart disease. Some are used during and immediately following an event, while others are used preventatively when heart disease is discovered or to prevent future events.
Stent surgery is used to ensure arteries stay open wide enough to allow for the passage of blood. Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure that opens blocked arteries and can be performed at the same time a stent is put in place. Bypass surgery is used to reroute the blood flow to your heart so it can bypass the clogged area.
Other procedures used to prevent heart disease from triggering a heart attack include valve disease treatment, and EECP, which stimulates blood vessels to develop natural bypass branches. Your doctor might also recommend cardioversion, ablation, lead extraction, or in severe cases, heart transplant. Two other options include implanting medical devices. Patients either receive a pacemaker, which sends electronic pulses to the heart to ensure it maintains a stead rhythm and rate, or a defibrillator, which is used to treat abnormal heart rhythms.
Other Treatment Options
If your doctor decides surgery is not necessary or that further treatment is needed after surgery, he or she may prescribe medication to prevent heart attacks. These could include medicines that keep heart rates steady, lower blood pressure, thin the blood and prevent clotting, relax blood vessels, or help the heart to heal after an event. You will probably also receive information about improving your diet, incorporating exercise, reducing stress, and making other healthy, preventative changes.
