Man suffers heart attack 23 times in few hours

Fri, Jan 29, 2016, 04:47 PM
To get the measure of the human heart is as difficult as to get the measure of man. Years ago, it was often said the third heart attack would be fatal. Now heart patients are suffering even a fourth heart attack and more.

In a curious case in Kochi, a 60-year-old man was playing ball with his grandson. He suffered a heart attack. He was taken to hospital. The ECG test showed he suffered a heart attack.

The doctors tried to put the patient on medication. But the man's body did not co-operate. Besides, he suffered repeated heart failures.

The patient was then shifted to Aster Medicity Hospital. The doctors who conducted tests on him reiterated, like the doctors generally do, that the man had not got medical help within the first hour of the heart attack. That complicated the matters. That was why he suffered 23 heart failures.

A stent was put in his body for free circulation of blood. But then the stent was helping the patient only to the extent of 30% in the circulation.
