Military doctor, cardiovascular surgeon and cardiologist Vladimir Khoroshev told the Zvezda TV channel what habits a person needs to develop in order to avoid dangerous pathologies that can lead to sudden death.
“At least 65-70% are affected by hypertension in this or that degree of severity. Moreover, many people do not know their pressure. A person who has lived 45 years of age can measure blood pressure only a couple of times. And then, with surprise, he finds out that he has a pressure of 160 to 95. That is, he lives and does not know about it, and this is a very important circumstance, "explained Vladimir Khoroshev.
The cardiologist noted that there should be "all-important control of blood pressure." According to the cardiovascular surgeon, young people should have their blood pressure measured at least once a week. Middle-aged people - at least once every two to three days.
“Under this condition, many complications can be avoided, including aneurysms, strokes, myocardial infarctions. It is also very important to drink alcohol in moderation. I am not urging my compatriots to stop drinking. It would be ridiculous. But the fact is that our alcohol consumption is increasing. Excessive doses,”said Vladimir Khoroshev.
The expert added that the lack of healthy food can also lead to dangerous pathologies.
“People are biting. On the interception, as they say. And what is now getting away with it does not pass without a trace. As it happens with young people, with students: he grabbed a piece of sausage on the go, ran into a fast food restaurant and had a snack. This does not pass without leaving a trace and will have an effect by the age of 30,”the doctor warned.
Earlier, cardiologist Tatyana Shalygina listed a number of pathologies that can threaten death even for young people. According to her, the causes of premature care can be central sleep apnea, rupture (stratification) of an aneurysm, separation of a blood clot, heart failure, sudden unexplained death syndrome.
