HEART ATTACKS AND WATER

How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night.
Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this ! Interesting......
. Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time? Answer from my Cardiac Doctor :- Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.
This then ties in with the last statement! I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.

Correct time to drink water: Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body 2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion 1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure 1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack
I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on... Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets. Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks.

There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ...DO NOT LIE DOWN!

hi
what probably happened
must have been that the patients blood pressure must have suddenly dropped

in an admitted patient one starts with fluids etc
in a patient who is not having access to those measures
one of the best way to rise bp is to move the blood
from the periphery of the body to the vital organs- the heart

so you lie down the patient
so that the effect of gravity is reduced
you raise the legs so that the blood in legs move to the heart
the pumping is to really move the blood

usually the step 3 is not really required

hope that helps and answers your question mr pramod gupta

and hey, good post mehra ji, as always

best of luck

Once I was in Escorts Heart Institute, Friends Colony, New Delhi and one heart patient became critical in OPD Area. Specialist doctor immediately rushed towards him and made him lie down on floor on his back and raised his legs so that more blood flowed towards the heart. The doctor kept on doing pumping action on the backside of his legs, so that blood kept moving. The patient was thus rescued. Could u comment on this.
I assume, this is the way of giving first aid in case of emergency, in heart related disease. pkgupta more
