Cardiologist Korenevich spoke about a harbinger of sudden death: a blood clot

Cardiologist, Candidate of Medical Sciences Anna Korenevich reported that one of the common causes of sudden death is thromboembolism of the branches of the pulmonary artery (PE). It leads to cardiac arrest.

They also say about this situation “the blood clot has come off.” In some cases, the point of no return is 4-6 hours from the moment the first signs appear.

— The situation is extremely sad, because there is simply no time to correct it. It is important to know the reasons here in order to prevent a catastrophe,” the doctor wrote on her blog.

According to the specialist, if the blood clot is large, then blockage of the pulmonary artery causes cardiac arrest and death.

>Formation of a blood clot can be caused by several reasons:

1. Blood clotting disorder.

2. Damage to the vascular wall. Injury, surgery, infection or inflammation can damage the vascular wall, which contributes to the formation of a blood clot.

3. Slow bleeding. If blood stagnates in the vessels, this can contribute to the formation of a blood clot. For example, when sitting for long periods of time, immobility, or certain medical conditions.

4. Some diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and some bleeding disorders, may increase the risk of thrombosis.

5. Hormonal changes: pregnancy, use of contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy increase the risk of thrombosis.

6. Smoking. Smoking increases the risk of thrombosis, as it affects blood clotting and the condition of blood vessels.

How to avoid blood clot formation?

  • Regular exercise will help improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of thrombosis.
  • Avoid prolonged sitting or standing.
  • Control your weight.
  • Stop smoking.
  • If you have high blood pressure or diabetes, it is important to follow your doctor's orders and take medications to control these conditions.
