How to prevent millions of new cases of myocardial infarction every year?


Myocardial infarction is myocardial infarction. It is because the coronary artery supplying the heart is blocked by thrombus, resulting in myocardial ischemia and hypoxia and loss of vitality, putting the patient in the danger of sudden death.

Myocardial infarction is on the rise in China. Each year, the number of new cases is close to one million, and it is becoming younger. Patients in their twenties and thirties are very common, let alone middle-aged and elderly people over the age of forty or fifty. It is no exaggeration to call them "killer".

7 types of people are prone to myocardial infarction


1. Hypertensive patients

People with high blood pressure are more likely to suffer from heart disease than ordinary people2.5x.

2. Patients with diabetes

Patients with diabetes are more likely to suffer from heart disease than ordinary people2x.

3. Patients with dyslipidemia

Abnormal blood lipids, excessive cholesterol and lipids in the body will accumulate in the blood vessels, which is easy to block the blood vessels and induce myocardial infarction.

4. Obese people

Obesity, especially abdominal obesity, increases the risk of myocardial infarction.

5. Smoker

Both smoking and drinking will increase the burden on the heart, damage vascular health, increase the risk of atherosclerosis, and thus induce myocardial infarction.

6. Menopausal women

In menopausal women, estrogen secretion in the body decreases, increasing the incidence rate of myocardial infarction.

7. Drug abusers

If you often take contraceptives and other drugs, you will also increase the risk of myocardial infarction.

To protect the heart and prevent myocardial infarction, remember the following5 points:

1. Control diet

To prevent myocardial infarction, we should pay attention to controlling diet to regulate blood lipids, because abnormal blood lipids are one of the main factors that induce myocardial infarction.


Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables can strengthen blood vessels and maintain their elasticity. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients, including cellulose, which is conducive to regulating blood lipids.

Yellow and green vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots and green peppers have a good effect on regulating blood lipids. The best cooking method is steaming, which can retain the nutrition of food to the greatest extent.

2. Ensure sleep

The key to prevent myocardial infarction is to develop good work and rest habits and ensure adequate sleep. Myocardial infarction tends to be younger, which is largely due to young people staying up late for a long time.


Due to the pressure of work and life, overtime is a common thing, so staying up late has become a very common thing.

Staying up late for a long time is very harmful to the body, and it is easy to cause endocrine disorders, thus slowing down the blood circulation speed and speeding up the heart rate. In addition, drink as little water as possible before going to bed, in order to prevent the quality of sleep from being affected by many times of waking up at night, develop regular work and rest habits, and reduce the risk of myocardial infarction.


3. Quit smoking and alcohol


Drinking a lot of alcohol can cause coronary artery spasm, increase myocardial oxygen consumption and induce acute myocardial infarction. Smoking can cause vasospasm, myocardial ischemia, serious arrhythmia, and then induce sudden death.

Therefore, to protect heart health, we must pay attention to smoking cessation and alcohol restriction.

4. Don't overwork

Many patients with acute myocardial infarction are caused by overwork caused by carrying heavy objects or excessive physical activity.


So we should avoid overwork in our daily life. Exercise should be carried out according to our own conditions, ensure adequate rest, combine work and rest, and do not overdraw the body.

5. Keep warm

When the human body is stimulated by cold, the excitability of the sympathetic nervous system of the body increases, and the secretion of phenol amine in the body increases, resulting in vasoconstriction, increased cardiac workload, and increased oxygen consumption.


At this time, the probability of myocardial ischemia, hypoxia and angina pectoris is significantly increased. Cold can also make platelets easier to agglomerate, increase blood viscosity, and form thrombus to block blood vessels, which is also an important cause of myocardial infarction.
