The doctor explained that not all types of arrhythmias are dangerous. However, one of the most common – atrial fibrillation or atrial fibrillation – can increase the risk of fatal conditions. With atrial fibrillation, the heart beats erratically and unevenly. As a result, blood stagnation can occur in the chambers of the heart – blood clots are formed. And this threatens with a stroke.
Dzvoniskaya said that to prevent this condition, you need:
- eliminate bad habits – smoking and alcohol;
- provide daily physical activity;
- eat right and not gain excess weight.
The doctor noted that if there is no time for sports, then you need to at least take an extra stop to the house or climb the stairs instead of the elevator.
The first signs of arrhythmia are rapid, irregular heartbeat, chest discomfort. However, this state may not manifest itself in any way. In any case, if you suspect an illness and for advice on your health, you should visit a doctor.
