Cardiovascular Procedures
Once the doctor arrives, the cardiac catheterization procedure takes 20-30 minutes. You will be prepped about 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. An hour may lapse before the doctor speaks to your family.
Your doctor will prescribe bed rest for you, generally about 4-6 hours but depends upon your post –op condition.
You will be given medicine to help you relax. The doctor needs you to be awake to follow instructions during the procedure. However, you will be given medicine to help you relax and make you as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
Come to the hospital prepared to stay overnight, but there is a chance you will go home the same day for angiography.
You may eat about an hour after the catheter or sheath is removed from your groin.
You will not be able to drive for 24 hours post-procedure.
Echo Cardiogram
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound picture of the heart. A standard echocardiogram is also known as a transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE). Another method available is a transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) which allows a specialized probe to pass into the esophagus and capture images directly from behind the heart.
An echocardiogram measures the size of heart chambers and thickness of chamber walls, as well as the heart’s pumping strength. Echocardiography can detect valvular problems, fluid around the heart, blood clots or masses inside the heart or abnormal holes between heart chambers, among other things.
This test relies on ultrasound waves (high-frequency sound waves), which bounce off heart tissue and reflect back through a transducer (a small microphone-like device) held on the patient’s chest. A computer constructs an image of the heart. This image is displayed on a screen and can be recorded or printed.
There are absolutely no risks; however, there may be slight discomfort to the chest wall while having an echocardiogram.
Electrocardiogram (EKG /ECG) Information
An EKG shows information regarding heart attack, heart rate and heart rhythm, heart blocks among other things.
An EKG is a graphic display of the heart’s electrical activity.
The patient lies down on a couch or bed and is connected to the EKG equipment by electrodes placed on the chest, arms and legs. The electrical activity of the heart is printed out and sent to the physician for interpretation.
Information about Cardiac Holter Monitors
A Holter monitor is a portable, ambulatory EKG which is usually worn for 24 hours. It records the heart rate and rhythm for 24 hours, during which time the patient keeps a diary and records any symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, etc. At the end of the recording period, the information is analyzed and a report is created for the physician to interpret. If a physician requests monitoring over a longer period of time (15-30 days), a similar device known as an event monitor may be provided.
Several electrodes are placed on the chest; they connect to the small monitor. It may be worn around the waist or the neck. Patients may perform normal daily activities. To avoid getting the monitor wet, showering and/or tub bathing are not advised.
Stress Test Information
The physician looks for changes on the EKG that would indicate a decrease of blood flow to the heart, possibly by a blockage in one or more of the coronary arteries.
A stress test is an EKG that is done while the heart is working faster, usually with the patient walking on a treadmill.
Like all EKG monitoring, electrodes and lead wires connect the patient to the monitoring equipment. A baseline EKG is taken, and then the patient is asked to walk on the treadmill until maximal exercise is attained or until the physician has enough information to end the test. The EKG is monitored throughout the stress test and compared to the resting or baseline EKG.
There is some risk of provoking abnormal rhythms, ischemia (restriction in blood supply to heart) or other symptoms, but this is evaluated and closely monitored by the physician.
Cardiac Surgery
Yes to some extent
CABG - coronary artery bypass graft, valve replacement, Valve repair, closure of congenital deformity.
Tiredness, Giddiness, Breathlessness, Cough , Pain in chest on exertion.
Aspirin may be taken as per the advice of cardiologist/physician.
Risk of heart disease is more in over weight people.
It acts as Antioxidant and helps to some extent.
The diseases affecting valves of the heart.
Sleep Disorder
    You might have a sleep disorder if:
  • Your snoring disturbs your bed partner
  • You have trouble falling asleep at night more than three times a week.
  • You wake up often during the night.
  • You feel tired throughout the day.
  • You find yourself falling asleep while driving, at work or in class.
  • You have an itchy, crawly feeling in your legs.
  • You wake up with a headache or a dry/sore throat.
  • Sleep apnea, in which breathing stops or gets very shallow during sleep. Each pause typically lasts 10-20 seconds or more, and can occur 20 to 30 times an hour.
  • Insomnia, which includes difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, waking up too early and/or poor quality of sleep.
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), characterized by a strong, often uncontrollable urge to move your legs immediately before sleep, or other odd feelings like burning, prickling, itching or tingling.
  • Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD), in which patients have repetitive, uncontrollable and often imperceptive muscle spasms during non-REM sleep.
  • Narcolepsy, sometimes called “sleep attacks,” means falling asleep at unusual times and in awkward places.
  • Parasomnias, a category of undesirable physical or verbal behaviors during sleep, such as sleepwalking, bed-wetting, teeth grinding, frequent nightmares, night terrors, nocturnal seizures or sleep paralysis.
Sure – doctors call it “sleep hygiene.” Just like dental hygiene, developing the right habits can have a big impact on your health.
Roughly 5-10% of the general population in India have a sleep disorder – and most are completely unaware of it. Many who are aware they have a diagnosable sleep disorder seek the help they need.
Yes – some of the common risk factors for sleep disorders include:
  • Age : While sleep problems affect all ages, they’re more common in middle and older-age adults. Children have different sleep patterns, resulting in unique pediatric sleep problems.
  • Gender : Women are more likely to suffer from insomnia; men are more likely to have sleep apnea.
  • Weight : The more you weigh, the more likely you are to develop a sleep disorder.
  • Anatomy : Some people have structural abnormalities in the sinuses, mouth, throat or elsewhere in the upper airway.
  • Drug or alcohol use : Medications, alcohol or drug abuse can interfere with normal sleep patterns or the ability to awaken from sleep.
  • Other medical problems : People who suffer from high blood pressure or depression are also at higher risk.
  • Go to bed at the same time every night.
  • Always sleep in a bed in a dark, quiet room – avoid the temptation to sleep in a recliner or on the couch.
  • Give yourself time to unwind from daily activities to help clear your mind.
  • Follow the same “getting ready for bed” routine every night.
  • Get regular daily exercise.
  • Don’t eat within four hours of going to bed.
  • Avoid all caffeine six hours before bedtime.
  • Avoid alcohol and tobacco two hours before bedtime.
