Along with the aging population, an increase in cardiac atrial fibrillation, an estimated three percent of Czechs. By 2030, the number x & # 39; & # 39 is likely to be increased; 70 percent. The risk is high blood pressure or diabetes, but also sports & # 39; resistance. On Thursday, said Martin Fiala, head of the Kardja Care Medical Center neuron Brno and the Chairperson & # 39; Czech Heart Association.
Atrial fibrillation is characterized by an irregular and often rapid heart rhythm leading to uncoordinated coordinated arrest. The rhythm irregularities can cause blood clots, because blood can & # 39; accumulates in heart. There is a risk & # 39; stroke, the fibrillation is the cause of & # 39; one-fifth to one-third of cases.
"An important role in prevention has style & # 39; good healthy life, symptoms & # 39; observation, regular measurement of pulse and preventive tests including ECG," said Fiala. heart wall can & # 39; also lessens the sports of resistance, which can & # 39; also lead to atrial fibrillation. The sick are observing a decrease in performance, breath in the race, for example when they walk down stairs. There are temporary or persistent fibrillation, one in five patients converted to permanent year.
The European health care systems worth around € 3.3 billion annually (€ 85 billion). Treatment is possible with medicines called anti-arrhythmic so-called catheterization ablation, which is introduced through the artery or vein in the heart at the center where the electrode is placed in his last place of the heart wall causing fibrillation.
About 80 percent of patients over 65 years, and eight out of ten adults are affected by fibrillation. At the age of & # 39; five is one in four. At the age of & # 39; 69 years, the risk of death is about five percent. Death usually does not cause direct fibrillation, except for a possible stroke, to cause or aggravate heart failure, b & # 39; so impair heart function.
