Diagnosis of Heart Disease

Based on perceived symptoms, a doctor can make a rational estimate of whether the symptoms suggest a heart attack or not. His suspicion may be reinforced by the appearance of the patient, the level of blood pressure and heartbeat sounds. Your doctor will probably send it to the ECG examination and blood test, but when still feel the pain, the doctor will probably give an injection penghilangrasa pain before the examination. It's scary because the pain can be brought to the brink of a deeper, which can cause cardiac symptoms. The pain can also cause long-term psychological impact. The first ECG may not show signs of heart attack and possibly the examination should be repeated. Sometimes a second test still shows no change, and during this case, the diagnosis will rely on blood tests. The heart, like all other body cells, contain special chemicals called enzymes. When heart cells are damaged, enzymes are released together with circulating blood flow. After a heart attack, levels of this enzyme in part direct to rise, but subsequently these enzymes quickly break down and therefore no longer detectable after a day or two days, there is a new enzyme that is released several hours or several days later to stay in the blood for several days or even a few weeks
